Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE ISTHBRIDOE HER AID - Friday, March W3 Upsets come fast and furious Now who's favored in Southwest final? If you can call an upset a good thing, then all good things come in threes. Upsets were the call of the day at the University of Leth-bridge as three of the favored teams in the southwest zone "B" boys" provincial basket- ball, playoff finals were sidelined Thursday night. Only four of the original 10 teams, who sought the playoff title and a berth into the provincial finals, remain in the four-day single-knockout event. In the second day of action SULLY SAYS -By Put Sullivan ABOUT the only time you'll see a quiet Leo Durocher is When he has a bad case of laryngitis. If you see him smile, he's having gas pains. But when he talks about a player and that individual's talents, listen. He knows what be is talking about. It was once written that a lot of chips have teetered on the Durocher shoulder, over Durocher was the oldest manager in majors last year when he was relieved of his duties with the Chicago Cubs of the National League. Some people said he was fired. "I stepped aside," said Durocher. It was hardly a month later that he took over the reins of the Houston Astros. He is currently at the Astro training base, giving with the boyish enthusiasms that have swept earlier generations of Despite the fact Durocher hasn't pulled off a genuine miracle since 1951 with the New York Giants, he feels this could be the year. "Our superstar is Cesar Ce-deno. I always said that Willie Mays was the best ball player I ever saw," continued Durocher. Cedeno may be making Durocher forget Wonderful Willie. "Cedeno is as good as Wil- Wtole most managers would be happy to say they managed one superstar in a career, Durocher lays claim to having bossed three. Filling out the trio was Pete Reiser when Durocher was with the Dodgers. No matter how strong the argument Durocher stands firm in his belief that Reiser would have been a dandy, with a little luck. "Few ball players ever burst on the scene like Reiser. At the age of 21. Reiser put it all together. The Dodgers won the pennant and Reiser won the batting crown with a .343 average. Then he began to improve and was hitting .380 in mid-season of 1942 when he crashed head on into a fence making a brilliant catch off Enos Slaughter. He the years. But that's because there have been a lot of years in the Durocher - baseball relationship. There have been so many of them, in fact, Leo began automatic collection of his $25,000 a year pension from the game in July 1971. It doesn't bother Leo a bit. Leo has too much gall for that. young ball players into playing above their heads. Everyone, even Leo the Lip, agrees that this is his last fling. He has to give it all he has got. "The Houston ball club is the only one that could get me back to managing," offered Durocher and he might have been telling the truth. "At my age I couldn't be waiting around while a club rebuilds. And this one is so close to a big breakthrough that seven positions are locked up already. lie Mays was when I first saw Willie," states Durocher proudly. Cedeno lends credit to Durocher's remarks. He was the third leading hitter in the league last year with a .320 average. He had 22 home runs and he stole 55 bases. He has the same tremendous arm as Willie and the same ability to make the great catches. And he just turned 22 last week. was never the same" again. He lost three years due to military service and hung on for a long time but was never what he should have been even if he did set a record one year by stealing home seven times." No one ever accused Durocher of yielding to sentiment but the Reiser memories did seem to shake him. The kid who had only a year and a half of stardom before crashing recklessly into a fence moved Durocher. At the moment, however, Leo is willing to settle for the last of his three superstars. Cedeno, the Dominican wonder is all he has left. Durocher must make the best of his new superstar, because time is definitely running out for Leo the Lip. INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER SPRING SPECIALS!

PARTS DEPARTMENT 30' STAFFORD DRIVE PHONE 327-3152 Thursday, upsets came In bunches. The Stirling Lakers started it all off by defeating the favored Milk River Comets 56-50 in the first game of the day while the Fort Macleod Flyers followed with a slim 45-42 decision over the Taber Trotters. The biggest upset of the day came in the final game of the evening when the Claresholm Cobras unseated the tourney favorite Winston Churchill Bulldogs 57-31. The only right prediction occurred when the defending Coaldale Gaels whipped the Vauxhall Vikings 44-23. In the Stirling - Milk River match, the Lakers grabbed a 19-6 lead after the first quarter and extended it to 33-12 by half-time. It was more-or-less all over for the Comets after the third quarter as they trailed 46-33. Shane Jarray was brilliant for the Lakers with a 26-point outing while Marty Hirsche hooped 15 points in a losing cause. Len Zoeteman netted 15 big points and guided the Fort Macleod Flyers to their upset victory over the Taber Trotters. The Flyers, who finished league play behind the Trotters, took a 11-8 lead after the first eight minutes but trailed 24-22 at halftime. They came out stronger in the second half and managed to regain a 37-34 margin going into the final quarter. Kendon Bennett led the Trotters with 18 points while Robin Hansen added 14. The Coaldale Gaels were never in doubt of their victory over the Vauxhall Vikings. They held a commanding 19-8 lead at the half and increased it to 30-16 after the third quarter. Werner Seluniegelt swished 15 points and Ed Dick 12 for the Gaels while Allan Friesen replied for the Vikings with eight. Claresholm Cobras came up with the unbelievable by ousting the Winston Churchill Bulldogs from further action. The Bulldogs, who captured the Southwest Conference Boys Basketball League pennant with an impressive 13-1 record this season, just couldn't handle the high-flying Cobras. The Cobras picked up a big 18-2 lead after the first quarter and a 31-12 gap by half-time. It was still thought that the Bulldogs could pull in a win but it wasn't to be. The key to the Colbras' upset win was the outstanding play of Glen Schuler and Jim Toone. Schuler, who stands 6'4" and Toone a 6'9" centre, pumped in 20 points apiece for the victors. Ken Nakama was the top gun for the' Bulldogs with 15 points. Meanwhile semi - final action will get under way at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. tonight. Claresholm and Coaldale hit the floor for the first game while Stirling and Fort Macleod tangle in the second. The losers will meet in the third place final at 6:30 p.m. and the winners lock horns for the championship final at 8:15 p.m. Saturday night. All games are staged at the U of L gymnasium.

Dugre, 27, added lustre to his r a p i d 1 y-growing reputation Thursday night by spearheading the New Brunswick rink from Chatham to vital victories in the seventh and eighth rounds of the 11-rink, round-robin competition. He manipulated play for six blank ends in a 5-3 triumph Local swimmers go east, west Members of the Lethbridge Amateur Swim Club will be busy this weekend. Wendy Kastiing and Lome Kemmet left today for Vancouver where they will compete in the 10th annual Dolphin Swim Club invitational swim meet Saturday and Sunday. Miss Kasting and Kemmett will be pail of the Canadain team that will meet teams from the United States and Russia. Meanwhile, 15 other members head for Winnipeg to attend the Cardinal invitational meet at the Pan-Am Pool. The swimmers who qualified for the trip east are Bill Syme, Barry Emerson, Henry Van Egteren, Tim Emerson, Jeff Rutledge, Glen Van Buur-en, Rob Emerson, Gordon Syme, Tim Myers, Robbie Tietz, Susan Hunt, Shirley Van Dyk, Cindy Gleb, Wendy Tuk, aid Lori Lavkulik. over the Northern Ontario rink skipped by Don Harry of Sudbury during afternoon play and followed with a pair of almost amazing shots to nip the Nova Scotia rink skipped by Peter Hope of Dartmouth 7-6 in an extra-end triumph at night. As a result, New Brunswick is the only entry with a realistic opportunity to overtake once-beaten Saskatchewan skip Harvey Mazinke of Regina in the race for the championship. New Brunswick has lost two games and holds second place with three draws remaining. All other rinks-including once-heralded Manitoba-have at least three defeats. LEADER HAS IT EASY Saskatchewan had an easy time winning two games Thursday. Mazinke, third Bill Martin, second George Achtymichuk and lead Dan Klippenstein defeated Newfoundland 13-3 in the afternoon round and clipped Quebec 104 in the evening. About 2,700 fans watghed the early round when Saskatchewan made short work of skip Jim Ward and his unpredictable partners . from Labrador City. About 4,800 watched the night draw, when Dave Moon of Montreal kept his rink within reach for nine ends before Saskatchewan broke it open.

Berjian Raiders, who trail 5-1 in their two - game total-goal series, will host Vulcan for the second and final match at 8:30 p.m. at the Civic Ice Centre tonight while the remaining three clubs will hit the ice Saturday. In Saturday's action, the. Marlands will open their two-game total - goal series against Medicine Hat at 5 p.m. at the Henderson Ice Centre while the Kinsmen Juvenile Warriors dress for an 8:30 tilt against Medicine Hat in their juvenile series opener. Another contest will be played at the Civic Centre at 8:30 p.m. when A.C.T. Bantam "A" Reps host Medicine Hat for their final game in the playoff series. A.C.T. currently leads the two-game total - goal series 6-2. Meanwhile in Midget League play last night, Sid Braak fired in a hat-trick and led the Lakers to a 6-3 win over the Bees. John Wasilewski, Shane Hirsche and Doug Pitt added singles while Bo Kuntz scored npice and Ron Matheson once for the Bees. In Bantam "B" action, Brad Lowe rifled in three goals and gave the Bruins a slim 5-4 victory over the Ramblers. Craig Robinson and Ross Mitchell chipped in with a goal each while Larry Buryan tallied a hat-trick and Charlie De-Jager a solo effort for the Ramblers. Martin's shooting was essential in the victories, but Achtymichuk said the improvement of ice conditions was equally important. "We're a hitting team," he said. "We play best on good, fast ice." Skip Mazinke said the ice, criticizzed earlier in the week, was as good as any arena ice he has played on. The championship is being staged at Ed-minton Gardens, not normally used for curling. Mean while Massachusetts Pronghorns stay alive in finals University of Lethbridge Pronghorns stayed alive in the City Recreation Hoc'key League championship playoff finals as they skated to a 10-6 victory over the Miners' Library Thursday night. The Miners' now lead the best-of-five final series two games to one. The fourth match of the series will be staged next Monday at 8:30 p.m. at the Henderson Lake Ice Centre. In last night's tilt, the Prong-horns posted a 4-0 lead after the first period and a 5-2 margin after the second. The Pronghorns extended the lead to 7-2 early in the third period but the Miners' came back with three straight goals midway through the session to tighten the gap. The Pronghorns rifled in two of their own right after and salted away the win. Guy Smith and Wayne Laz-arick tallied a pair of markers to lead the Pronghorns' attack while Dennis Smith, Al Fer-chuk, Lloyd Yamagishi, Wally Tunow'and Billy Kidd added singles. Brian MurWn scored twice for the Miners' while solo efforts were made by Tex Weibe, Gary Canadine, Randy Maxwell and Wes Weibe.

Phone 328-9271 turned into the spoiler Thursday night in what had been billed as the potential championship game of the 17th annual United States men's curling championship. Last year's runner-up turned the tables on last year's winner when Charles Reeves' rink pulled out an 8-6 win over previously unbeaten North Dakota to earn a share of the lead with the Grafton rink. Massachusetts came from behind three times with third Doug Carlson's two button shots on the final end the deciding factor. Bob Labonte's final shot chipped one of the stones out but his rock didn't roll in. Should Massachusetts win its matches today against California and Illinois and should North Dakota beat Michigan and Minnesota, the tournament would go into a final extra draw on Saturday to determine the U.S. representative to the world championships in Regina, Sask., March 19-24. In third place after Thursday's draws was Washington with a 6-3 record.
