Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Canadiens9 coach upset with referee No signs of easing up by Orr, Esposito By THE CANADIAN PRESS Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr today are within easy reach of letting three National Hockey League records after breaking one and tying another Wednesday night. Orr scored twice in an 8-1 Boston Bruins victory over California Golden Seals to reach a season total of 34 goals. That's one more than the mark of roost goals by a defenceman he set last season. . Esposito's second-period goal gave him a total of 58, tying the mark for most goals by any player set in the 1968-69 season by Chicago Black Hawks Bobby Hull. The Bruins move on to Los Angeles where they meet the Kings tonight and Esposito now is just one point behind his record total of 126 set two seasons ago. And Orr, who also earned an assist on Johnny Bucyk's 45th goal, is just one from the record total for defencemen he set last year. He has 34 goals and 85 assists going into Los Angeles. In other games Wednesday, Toronto Maple Leafs edged Montreal Canadiens 2-1, New York Rangers downed Chicago 4-2, Minnesota North Stars whipped St. Louis Blues 4-0 and Philadelphia Flyers tied Pittsburgh Penguins 2-2. The Bruins also set a team record of most points in one season. They reached a total of 105 Wednesday, two more than the mark set by Montreal in The Bruins still are not in much danger of running out of records to surpass. Orr has yet to beat the record of most assists by any player in one season. He set that mark last season as well and with 85 to date, he is just two short of tying it. Orr gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead in the first period and his second goal in the first minute of the final session made it 6-1 for Boston. Esposito scored unassisted when he stole the puck from California's Bill Hicke behind the Seals net and whirled around to dump a short shot past goalie Gary Smith. The Bruins fired 40 shots at Smith and Chris Worthy who shared the netminding duties for the Seals. Mike Walton, Don Awrey, Wayne Oarleton and Johnny McKenzie got the other Boston goals. The Seals took 30 shots at Boston goalie Gerry Cheevers, who allowed the one goal by Dennis Hextall. The victory kept Boston 10 points in front of second-place New York in the East Division. Third-place Montreal dropped 14 points back of the Rangers while the fourth-place Leafs moved to within seven points of the Canadiens. Montreal coach Al MacNeil was upset not only with the loss but also with referee Bill Friday's assessment of a rare tri- ple minor penally against Canadiens left winger John Ferguson. Friday had already signalled a hooking call against Ferguson in the first period when the Montreal player started a scuffle in a corner with Leaf winger Garry Monahan. Besides the hooking sentence, Ferguson sat out two additional Three rinks remain close 'It's still anybody's game' SAINT JOHN, N.B. (CP) -"It's still anybody's game," says Manitoba Jim Dunstone of the C a n a d i a n mixed-curling championship. With three rounds remaining in the 11-rink round-robin affair, only one victory separates the top three rinks. The ninth and 10th rounds were scheduled today, at 1:30 p.m. MST and 7 p.m. The final round is scheduled for 8:30 a.m Friday. In the ninth round it was Saskatchewan and Quebec, New Brunswick and Newfoundland, British Columbia and Alberta, 'B' boys' title up for grabs The Alberta "B" Boys- Basketball champions will be decided in Lethbridge as the Winston Churchill High School will host a two-day single knockout tournament over the weekend. In all, 10 provincial zones will be represented in the championship tournament, but only seven teams have verified they will be participating as yet. The Stirling Lakers and the Foremost Falcons will be the only two teams representing the sunny south. Stirling who gained the berth into the playoffs with a stunning victory over the Picture Butte Sugar Kings in the Southwest "B" Boys play-off final last weekend, will challenge the visitors to this area. Foremost the other Southern Alberta club will represent the southeast zone. Austin O'Brien Crusaders from Edmonton will make the trip south to Lethbridge as they captured the Edmonton City zone title, while further north the Sexsmith Sabres won the right to make a bid for the Alberta title by winning the northwest zone. Vermillion will also make the journey to our city as they picked up the northeast zone title. In central Alberta, the Cam-rose Composite Trojans will represent the central eastern zone while the Lacombe High School head south with the central western title. The three zones not heard from include the City of Calgary, north central and south central. During the two-day affair 13 games will be run-off with five on tap in the opening day-Action will commence Friday at 2 p.m. and will end Saturday with the championship game slated for 8:30 p.m. Manitoba and Ontario, Northern Ontario and Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island had the bye. Larry McGrath's Saskatchewan team defeated Vince Le-bano's Orillia, Ont., rink 10-7 in eighth-round play and pushed its record to 6-1, tops in the bon-spiel. Dunstone's group, on the strength of the skip's draw shot for an extra-end single, edged Bruce Stewart's Calgary rink 7-6, for a share of second place. Manitoba and Alberta had 5-2 records. McGrath says he expects his rink's final three games to be tough. Seeking its third national mixed title, the Saskatchewan rink faces Quebec, British Columbia and Manitoba. Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta all won one game and lost another in Wednesday's two rounds. The day's play left Nick Old-ale's Sydney, N.S, rink with a 5-3 record. British Columbia, skipped by Kelly Oarin of Kam-loops, was 4-3 while Dr. Ed Steeves' Moncton, N.B., rink and Bobby Dillon's Charlotte-town quartet had 4-4 records. Quebec, skipped by Bill Tracy of Arvida, was 3-4 following the eighth round and Ontario had two wins in seven games. Harvey Caron's Northern Ontario rink from Timmins and Horst Illing's Labrador City, Nfld., rink had 1-6 records. In other eighth-round games, an 11th end single gave British Columbia an 8-7 victory over Quebec, Prince Edward Island defeated Northern Ontario 8-4 and New Brunswick downed Nova Scotia 8-5. two-minute penalties for the fight while Monahan drew only one two-minute session.

Tim Tollestrup all-star centre EDMONTON (CP) - University of Manitoba Bisons, the Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Association Basketball Champions, and second-place University of British Columbia Thunder birds each landed three players on the league's two all-star teams, it was announced today-League statistician Terry Jones said both teams had two members on the five-man first team and one each on the second squad. The only unanimous choice Wants to prove win was a fluke CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) -"Good, we've got a rematch, maybe in seven months, might be sooner," said Muhammad Ali Wednesday after Joe Frazier promised to give him another crack at the heavyweight title. "Sure, I'll fight him-anytime he wants it," Frazier said in a radio interview beamed to Great Britain. Ali wants it, as soon as it can be arranged. "It's up to the managers and the promoters now, they'll have to agree," Ali said. Ali acted as though a rematch were a certainty, and that he would prove his first and only defeat was a fluke. "I won at least nine of the rounds," he said. "The judges just saw it different, they said I lost it. "If I hadn't given two rounds away, just playing with him, clowning, touching him on his head, which was dumb, they couldn't have taken it away." Relaxing at his new $200,000 Spanish-style ranch home 15 miles northeast of Philadelphia, Ali spoke quietly to newsmen through his swollen jaw. Occasionally he touched the side of his face-"see, hot another mark on it"-and insisted "it doesn't hurt, it's just a bad bruise, nothing broken "Next time will be different. I'm going to come back." Ali said next time, too, he wants foreign judges and a foreign referee "so everything will be even up, fair and square." "Too many Americans have feelings and prejudices, and call me a draft dodger. My ability in the ring shouldn't be affected by a prejudiced American public. "The fight could have gone either way. I made a few mistakes that caused me to lose the fight on points, but it's too late now to fuss about it. "That's why there's so much interest in a rematch. Anything so close should be done over." for an all-star berth was guard Ron Thorsen of the Thunder-birds - chosen in a mailed ballot by the coaches of the 10 teams in the league. Thorsen, also named an all-Canada player this season, placed second to University of Lethbridge Chinooks' Tim Tollestrup in the scoring race. Tollestrup the only other WCIAA player to win nomination, is a centre. Guard Angus Bust of Manitoba joined Thorsen and Tollestrup on the first team as did forwards Derek Sankey of British Columbia and Bob Town of Manitoba. Terry MacKay of B.C. is the centre on the second squad. The forwards are Ted Stoesz of Manitoba and Dick DeKlerk of University of Alberta Golden Bears and guards Barry King of University of Winnipeg Wes-men and Bob Morris of Alberta. Stoesz was the only other player to receive additional post - season honors, being named to the all-star team at the Canadian Championships last weekend at Wolfville, N.S. Ross Wedlake of Manitoba, a centre and sometimes forward, was runner-up at both positions. Player statistics were dominated by the six-foot-nine Tollestrup. He won the scoring championship with a total of 485 points, a game average of 254. Thorsen was second with 407 and 22.6, King third with 383 and 17.1 and DeKlerk fourth with 299 and 16.7. Tollestrup set a rebound record with 134 offensively and 240 defensively for a total of 374, an average of 20.8 a game. Second was a 13.3 average by Danny Quance of University of Calgary Dinosaurs. Wedlake was the best man from the floor with a 55-percent field goal completion record. From the foul line, Sanke made 42 of 47 for 89 per cent. Bill Moody of University of Brandon Bobcats was the WCIAA bad boy with 67 personal fouls. Brian Sanders of Lethbridge had the most turnovers - giving the ball to the opposition without hitting the backboard - with 101.
