Trinity gathered a 20 point lalf lime lead and went on to hump Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences of Saskatoon 108 60. Meanwhile, the Kodiaks led 42-10 at the iolf and finished with an im- pressive 96 30 victory over led River Community College of Winnipeg.

In the Trinity victors1, Al Nueman and Greg Kimball sparked the attack with 17 and 16 points respectively.

Last year, the same two clubs reached the championship fina and the Gaels came away with a slim 4M7 victory over the Lakers. Both clubs advanced to the championship round once again as they posted easy victories in their semi-final matches Fri- day night. Last night a large gather- ing at the University of Leth- bridge witnessed a pair of predictable outcomes. The defending champion Gaels whipped the Claresholm Cobras 5G-34 in the first semi i n a 1 encounter while Lakers followed with an pressive 60-42 decision over the hapless Fort Macleod Flyers. In the first contest, the Gaels held a slim 11-9 lead after the first quarter but poured it p in the second and carried an in surmountable 32-19 the dressing room at halftime. They continued to show their over-powering strength in ths second half and just trotted to the victory by taking a 45-22 lead at the end of the third quarter. Ed Dick came up with a bril- liant individual effort for the Gaels hooping 25 big points in the win. Glen Schuler and Jim Toone paced the Cobras' weak attack with 14 and 13 points re- spectively. The Gaels mustered up an overall field goal shooting av- erage of 38 per cent while the Cobras hit on 31 per cent of their attempts. Gaels also led on the foul line firing in 55 per cent ot their shots while the Cobras man- aged to score only 22 per cent of their tries. Turnovers were 17-14 in fa- vor of the Gaels.

Treviiio still leads golf event MIAMI (AP) Lee Trevino slipped slightly from his fantas- tic opening pace but fashioned a two-under-par 70 and retained a trong, four-stroke lead Friday n the second round o! the 100 Doral-Easlcrn Open golf ournament. Trevino, who had an incred- be 64 in Thursday's opening round, posted a 36-hole total of 34-10 under par on Ihe 'ard Blue Monster Course at he Doral Country Club.

Both games will be staged at the U of L gymnasium. HOOP SHOTS Prior to the start of the tourney I predict- ed four tourney favorites and three of them were eliminated after their initial outing Coaldale still remains in the running though and I believe a seven-point victory is in store for them tonight barring any mishaps, like an injury to Ed Dick Perhaps I was a little harsh on the Flyers and a little short on praising the Lakers but that's the way I saw it.
