Sopers given best chance to earn bronze for Canada By GORDON GRANT CP SPORTS EDITOR MUNICH (CP) Canadian dancers start their quest for medals today as the world fig- ure skating championships go into their second day. Barry and Louise Soper of West Vancouver and Barbara Berzoewski of Toronto and David Porter of Port Perry, Ont., are Canada's representatives in the dance and the best they can realistically hope for is a the Sopers given the best chance for that The Sopers were ninth in the world championships last year while Berzoewski and Porter were 15th Ludmila Pakhomova and Alex Gorshkov of the Soviet Union are considered unbeatable this year. Last year's runners-up, Angelika and Erich Buck of East Germany, have quit and their place is expected to be taken by Hilary Green and Glyn Watts of England who finished third in 1973 In Tuesday's opening events, Canadian officials were disappointed that Canadian men finished Triple fork ball Chicago White Sox pitcher Wilbur Wood has pitching coach Johnny Sain looking at a three-ball pitch at spring training.

Rogers, Sobchuk sparkle By The CANADIAN PRESS Three-goal performances by Mike Rogers and Dennis Sob- chuk lent sparkle to victories by the divisional leaders Tuesday night in the Western Canada Hockey League as Calgary Centennials edged Medicine Hat Tigers 4-3 and Regina Fats pummelled Winnipeg Clubs 9-5 Rogers counted once in each period while Garth Malarcbnk backstopped the Centennials k m superb style with 45 saves Twenty of his stops came in a frantic third frame as Medicine Hat came back from a 4-1 deficit In other action. Edmonton Oil Kings blasted Kamloops Chiefs 7-2 and Victoria Cougars dumped Swift Current Broncos 6-2. Ed Johnstone scored twice and assisted on Brad Ander- son's goal for the Tigers In addition to his three goals, Rogers assisted on Calgary's other marker by Danny Gare. Sobchuk's three goals were augmented by the Pats' Bill Bell, with two, and Glen Bur- don, Jim Minor, Mike Harazney and Clark Gillies, with singles. Bob Watson counted three times in the second period for the Clubs and teammates Kelly Greenbarik and Mike Floch added the others. seventh and eighth in compulsory figures, but Sandra and Val Bezic of Toronto were pleased with their fifth-place finish after the compulsory section of the pairs. Ron Shaver of Cambridge, Ont, was seventh in figures, well back of Jan Hoffmann of East Germany, who won the gold medal. HAVEN'T CHANCE Canadian champion Toller Cranston of Toronto was eighth after figures and the consensus was that he and Shaver had no chance of overtaking Hoffmann, although both are superior fig- ure skaters. The Canadians hope to move up today in the men's two- minute section won by Cranston last year at the world championships in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. Hoffmann, third in the world last year, won his gold medal by placing first in all three figures with 76.24 points. The silver medal went to Sergei Volkov of the Soviet Union with 75.44 points and the bronze medal to another Russian, Vladimir Kovalev with 72.31 points. Shaver, second to Cranston in the Canadian championships, had 69.23 points and Cranston 68.96 points. "The best has yet to said Cranston, 24, referring to the free skating, in which he and Shaver, 22, are ranked 1-2 in the world. Shaver was eight over-all in 1973 and hopes for at least a bronze this year. In today's two-minute pro- gram, the skaters do six ele- ments of free skating with the marks counting 20 per cent of a skater's total. The compulsory figures counted 40 per cent and the other 40 per cent comes from the five- minute program. In the pairs. Tuesday's pro- gram counted 25 per cent to the over-all mark with the remainder of the program, the free skating, being held tonight In the compulsory section, world champions Irina Rodnina and Alex Zaitsev of the Soviet Union placed first with 34.79 points and 14 ordinals, ahead of Ludmila Smimova and Alex Ulanov, also of the Soviet Union, who had 34.65 points and 19.5 ordinals. Third place went to Romy Kermer and Rolf Osterreich of East Germany with another East German couple, Mairaela Gross and Uwe Kagelmann, fourth Then came the Bezics, a brother-sister team, with 42 ordinals and 33 56 points. They were fifth in the world last year and hope for a higher placing this time. Farm to Market purchased by local syndicate of 12 By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Only his knees give any indication of his age. But then, his days of racing are all behind him. As a matter of fact, they are somewhere 15 years back in his memory. Farm to Market is 17 years of age. He last ran as a two- year-old before an unfortunate leg injury cut short his racing career. However, it failed to dampen his competitive spirit or his usefulness. Just who is Farm to Market? He just may be the finest piece of horseflesh ever to be owned by any Albertan. For that matter, he ranks high in the thoroughbred listings for all of Western Canada. Farm to Market ran just 12 times as a two-year-old before breaking a leg. But he gave every indication he would be back. As a two-year-old he outran a horse called Venetian Way. So what? Venetian Way won the Kentucky Derby the' following year while Farm to Market was getting his pink slip as a runner. However, this grandaddy of thoroughbreds, has sired 10 stake winners in his and they have earned more than in the 10 years he has been at stud. Farm to Market is in Lethbridge, at the Green Acres Animal Clinic, because 12 Southern Alberta racing enthusiasts formed a syndicate in an effort to improve the breed of horses here in the South. The Farm to Market Syndicate, with president John Lengyel at the head of the board of directors, purchased the horse from the Hill "N" Dale Farms in Gromley, Ont. for the sole purpose of improving the calibre of race horses in Alberta. It says so right in the constitution of the group. Also belonging to the Farm to Market Syndicate are secretary Greg Blair, directors Bill West, Mel Depew and Dr. Ed Prince. Other members include Andy Andrews, Art Williams, Glen Holman, Brent Jensen, Howard Card, Morris Heggie, 'and Dr. Tom Melling. Toronto Blues will be missed OTTAWA (CP) When the Canadian Intercollegiate Ath- letic Union hockey 'playoffs open Friday in Waterloo, Ont., and Montreal, a familiar set of colors will be missing. For the first time in eight years, Toronto Blues will not be represented in the national playoffs. Instead, Ontario will be represented by Waterloo Warriors, who meet Calgary Dinosaurs in the best-of-three western final. The second and third games will be played Saturday and Sunday, also in Waterloo. The eastern final matches Sir George Williams Georgians at home to St. Mary's Huskies Friday, Saturday and Sunday in a similar series. The eastern and western winners go to the national final in a sudden-death game at Toronto's Varsity Arena March 16, starting at 2 p.m. EST The four teams this year will have an additional target to shoot for beyond the University Cup. The national winner earns the right to play host to the NCAA champion from the U.S. in a sudden- death North American championship game March 23. For the Warriors and the Di- nosaurs it is the first time ei- ther has reached the national beat Brandon Bobcats 14-5 and 4-3, the second game going to double overtime, in a best-of- three series and Waterloo winning a four-team tournament by beating Western Ontario Mustangs 6- 4. But Sir George has been to the playoffs seven of the last 11 years, although never winning, and St Mary's has been in the national final each of the last four years, losing each time to Toronto BOUT ENDS IN DRAW LANDOVER, Md (AP) Larry Middleton of Baltimore finished strongly, but managed only a draw with Jimmy Ellis, former World Boxing Association champion, Monday night in a 10-round heavyweight bout at the capital Centre. Ellis bled from the nose the last two rounds and suffered a cut on his left eyelid. Middleton took charge late in the eighth. You can bet that Farm to Market won't be at the track June 3-15 when the Lethbridge Exhibition stages a Spring Race Meet. It is also safe to say that none of his offsprings will romp at will at Whoop-Up Downs this spring, or for that matter even next spring But three years from now? That's a different story. "Outside of his legs he's in pretty good shape for 17 years wouldn't you said Blair recently when showing off the syndicate's investment. What the syndicate is hoping for, and betting on, is that Farm to Market will be a productive stud for three or four more years. "If we didn't feel that added we have made a bad investment While Farm to Market may not make the scene at the Spring Race Meet a number of other fine thoroughbreds are expected for the meet. This years spring affair will replace the annual Fall Race Meet as a new grandstand will be in the first stages of being built. "We'll return to the Fall Race Meet next year in all likelihood" assures Andrews, Exhibition manager. The spring meet will follow the same format as the fall event. Even to the running of the Marion Williams Handicap, the richest race in the Lethbridge race season. Andrews also hinted at an increase in purses for races featuring top thoroughbreds As Bill West put it "racing ts becoming more and more popular throughout the South." Farm to Market and a Spring Race Meet have to add to the popularity.
