The Lakers came back from an ll-point deficit at half time to trim the Picture Sugar Kings 46-42 in the championship final, allowing themselves a crack at the Alberta title next weekend. Enroute to the championship final the Lakers side-lined the Fort Macleod Flyers 5M5 in their tourney opener and kept alive their bid for the title by squeezing past the Vairehall Vikings 56-53 Saturday after- noon. Meanwhile the Picture Butte Sugar Kings on their road to the final match trimmed the Kate Andrews Gaels of Coal- dale 56-53 Friday night and used a foul shot to nick the host Winston Churchill Bull- dogs 44-43 Saturday afternoon in the semi-finals. In the championship final Saturday night the Picture Butte squad started out quickly and picked up a five-point lead after the first quarter of play. They padded the lead by six be- fore" half time and carried a 26- 15 margin going into the sec- ond half. Coach John Hicken was key factor in the Lakers' come- back victory as he constantly urged his players to put forth the extra effort. As the third quarter conclud- ed the Lakers cut the deficit down to six points and contin- ued to chip away the Sugar Kings' Jead until'the 3'30 mark of the final session. At this time the Lakers grabbed share of the lead for the first time in the contest as the Scoreboard read 4MO During these last three anc a half minutes the action got hot and heavy with both clubs trying desperately to gam con- trol of the ball.
