Ratelle injured the leg during a March 1 game wilh California Golden Seals and is expecled io be out Ihe rest of the season. Tueiday, March 7, 1972 THE IETHBR1DGE HERAID 9 Watchorn runs record to 2-1 atfer morning victory Sparkes, Wyatt maintain unbeaten marks with wins Ily DAVID M1U.UII ST. JOHN'S, Nflcl. (CJ1) Bernie Sparkes of Vancouver and Doug Wyatt of Saskatoon continued to roll along in the Canadian curling championship today, posting third-round victo- ries to share first place. Sparkes, who curls with the help of a lucky toy dog, downed Barry Shearer of Halifax 9-6 while Wyatl edged Dave Sulli- van of Kredericton 7-6. That left Sparkes and Wyatt with a 3-0 record apiece in the 11-rink, round-robin competi- tion. Orest Meleschuk of Winni- peg also is undefeated with a 2-0 mark, hut his Manitoba rink had the third-round bye. Tlie race is tight behind the three undefeated rinks as (our teams have only one loss. Mel Walchorn of Fair-view, Alta., Eldon Coombe of Ottawa and Bill Kent of Montreal all posted third-round wins for 2-1 marks while Sullivan, who had a Monday nig tit bye is 1-1. ALBERTA WINS EASILY Watchorn made it look easy today, however, as his strong Alberta rink destroyed Kip Ready of Charlottetown 16-.i. Watchorn lost his first game of the competition 5-4 to Kent. "Everytime we win some- thing big, we lost the first said Watchorn. "We iost our first here, but we hope to go all the way now. "The boys have finally found their draw weight. I just wish 1 Esposito increases lead Cournoyer back in form MONTREAL (CP) Yvan Cournoyer of Montreal Cana- diens is back on the scoring good news for mem- bers of the National Hockey League's goaltending fraternity. Tile chunky Montreal right winger who shoots from the left side, scored six goals in three games last week, including a three-goal performance against Philadelphia Flyers Sunday night. That outburst gave the five-foot-seven 178-pound Cour- noyer nine goals in his last five games. Cournoyer's splurge followed what for him was considered a goals in nine games. His latest scoring outbreak has vaulted him into eighth place in the NHL's individual scoring race with 69 points, hut he, like many other players in the list of leaders, does not ap- pear to have much chance of overhauling leader Phil Espos- ito of Boston Bruins. The Montreal winger now has S3 goals, only four short of his personal high which he attained with the Canadiens in 1968-69. If he keeps up his pace of the last Jew games, Cournoyer could be- come the third member of the Canadiens ever lo score more than 50 goals in a single season. Former Montreal right-winger Maurice (Rocket) Richard and Bernie Geoffrion were the first Hortoii out PITTSBURGH (AP) Vet- eran defenceman Tim Horion of Pittsburgh Penguins will he out the rest of the season with a shoulder separation, the Na- tional Hockey League club says. Horton, 41, suffered the injury in last Sunday night's 6-3 loss to the Red Wings in Detroit. It was the second bad break of he sea- son for Horton, who fractured an ankle in the sixth game of the year. He didn't return to action until Dec. 19, at Boston, after missing 27 games. Coach Red Kelly said the loss of Horton would force him to return of Daryl Edestrand to de- fence. He had been playing left wing for (he past several weeks. SAVE YOUR TIRES AND STEERING SYSTEM Align Inspect and nrljiist caster, r.imbrr toe-in to manufacturer's specifics lions players to score 50 goals In on< season. With centre Jean Ratelle o New York Rangers out of the scoring race because of an ankle injury that will keep him on the sidelines for the remain der of the season, Esposito ap- pears to have clear sailing to the tide. Esposilo now has 119 point and an 18-point lead over hi nearest active opponent, di fenceman Bobby Orr of th Bruins. Ratelle still holds sec second place with 109 points. Esposito gained more point than any other player last wee as he picked up nine in thre games. His total includes league-leading 58 goals, ties the second-best mark eve attained in a season. Esposilo has 76 goals last se; son, along with 76 assists. Hi 76 goals broke the 58 goa mark of Bobby Hull of Chicag Black Hawks, set in On- leads all players in sists with 71, while bis 101-poin (otal marks the third year h has bettered the 100-point ma] during his six seasons In th league. Ratelle's Unematcs, r i g 1 winger Rod Gilbert and lef winger. Vic HadfieM, are tie for fourth place with 92 point each. Meanwhile, Ken Dryden, th Canadiens' rookie nelmindei stole some of (he spotlight tha has surrounded Ins counterparl at Esposito an Gary season. Dryden recorded two stieccL sive shutouts last weekend to (i Esposito in tbe individual raci Each has eight. Dryden now ha gone 143 minutes and.40 sccnm: without being scored against. However, Esposilo went 19 minutes and 29 seconds ove five games earlier this season ad it in tho first round yestcr- ay." Coombe defeated Jack Mac- arlane of Sault Sle. Marie 12-8 xlay in ttie traditional rivalry etwecn Ontario teams. Kent, meanwhile, had his roblems before downing a sky Newfoundland rink tipped by Fred Durant of St. olm's. Ttie Quebec skip had to raw to the button with his last ock to nip Durant 8-7. RINKS WINLESS Four rinks are wiuiess after iree rounds: Newfoundland is -2 while Northern Ontario, Scotia and Prince Edward sland were 0-3. Sparkes had some early trou- le with Shearer, but the lanky !ova Scotia skip missed a hance to tie the game in the Oth when he blew an open tak- out for two. Sparkes stole one nd went on to the win. The Vancouver skip is making is fifth trip to to the national inal, but his first as a skip. And he has something going or toy dog that he puts ear the hogline at the start of ach game. "It's our lucky charm. We started using it earlier this sea- son and it works. The only time we didn't use it in the British Columbia playoffs, we lost both games." The second round Monday reduced the closest games o! he day. Roberto may quit in a year By THE CANADIAN PRESS "The greatest accomplish- ment to said Roberto Clernenle, "is the way I have played all my life." The Pittsburgh Pirates' out- fielder said Monday it will be one or two more seasons be- fore he closes his baseball career. He's giving himself time to get 118 hits, enough to crack the mark reached by only 11 other play- ers. "I don't let anything bother me to play this he said after a workout at the Pirates' Bradenton, Fla., spring training camp. "If I hit the ball back to the pitcher, I run hard. If I hit the ball back to second base, I run hard. If I miss a ball in the outfield, I run hard after the ball. And I tliink that all the time I try hard playing this game, I think that this has to be my biggest acorn- plishment." Clemente, 37, has been a National League All Star 11 times and has hit in all 14 World Series games in which he has played. FREGOSI OUT Elsewhere in spring train- Ing, Jim Fregosi of New York Mets has been sidelined for at least a month with a broken right thumb. He suffered the fracture during infield prac- tice Sunday but it wasn't diag- nosed until Monday. The St. Louis Cardinals said they haven't heard from hold- out Joe Torre, one of the team's four unsigned players. General manager Bing Devine hasn't said if he plans to in- voke the "renewal clause" to bring the four to camp. The clause says if the player is unsigned the club will announce by March 10 that Hie player as signed at a salary set by the club with a pay cut of no more than 20 per cent. What it means is the player is to negotiate during the trainnig period. Meleschuk, who has the bur- den of being picked favorite by most observers, had a rocky road for nine ends with a stub- born young Newfoundland rink. The partisan crowd cheered every shot made by the 23- chuk got his Manitoba curlers untrackcd in the JOth for a big four and an eventual 11-4 vic- tory. Wyatt, who was wary of tho ultra-fast ice, also broke his game open in the 10th, scoring year-old Durant and his rink of three to beat Shearer 9-7. university students, but Mcles-l In the other second-round gumcs, Watchorn went to an ex- tra-end before downing Farlane 9-8 and Coombe made a perfect draw in the 12th to down Quebec 10-7. "That ice was something all said Wyatt. "You had to really watch your takeouts or they'd run away from you." 11 teams seek cliampionship Southwest playoff tourney set High School b a R k e t b a 11 hampionship playoffs will ontinue in Lcthbridge wilh the Southwest Boy's Basketball layoff tourney this week.

The third place champion- ship contest is set to go at 7 p.m. Saturday with the champ- ionship final following at p.m. Tn running clown the teams participating in the four-day affair, Stirling Lakers must be considered tho tourney favor- ites. Jack Ilicken's Lakers are the defending Southwest zone and provincial champions and will be out in full force this week. Dest McKee, Spencer Zaugg and Marly Hirsche arc ex- pected to carry most of the load, since they guided tho Lakers to the Southwest pen- nant with a 12-1 record this season already. Milk River Comets, runners- up in the SWBC were the only ones to defeat the Lakers this season in league play. The Comets will rely heavily on Randy Evers the league's top scorer this year. Although the Coaldale Kate Andrews Gaels lack experience, they could possibly be tho dark-horse of the tourney. Richard Lowe, Fxi Dick and Werner Schmiegelt might just give'coach Pius Labolevech his first championship title. The Winston Churchill Bull- dogs, who captured the confer- ence tounxjy at Christmas arc hoping to do the same thing this time around. Ken Nakama and Jack Chym- boryk will lead the Bulldog's tough offensive and defensive units this week. Taber W. R. Myers are hop- Ing that Robin Hansen can oome up with another 43-point performance for tiiem in tho playoff tourney. Hanscn and brother Bob, who finished second in the scoring race should fire up the tallest club in the tourney. The Vauxhall Vikings are in a rebuilding year with several rookies. Jack Rempel and Murray Brown are expected to give the Vikings a respectable showing. Picture Butte is also in a re- building year after winning tho league title last year. They could provide drastic upsets in tho four-day event. The Fort Macleod Flyers have a good shooting squad, but lack experience, due to a mix- ture of veterans and rookies in their line-up. This season the Flyers fin- ished wilh a 1-13 record. From the Far West Basket- ball Conference Dale Stuckey'j Matthew Halton Hawks from Pincher Creek can't be counted out. The Hawks captured the con- ference cliampionship with an impressive 7-1 record and Picture Butte Tournament ear-' lier this year. Murray Yellowhorn and Greg Soady will earn' most of the load on the backboards. Claresholm wider the guid- ance of Dennis Simpson can b9 the spoilers of the tourney. Glen Sclnilcr and Jim Toone, a centre, will lead their attack. Claresholm consists mainly of grade 11 students. Consolidated High School Panthers finished season v.-ith a 3-7 record, hut will be out to maintain en un- blemished record in tho touru- ney.
