Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 11, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 9 Bulldogs lose in Southwest final Gaels finish storng in victory Foul coming up Kate Andrews Gaels won the Southwest 'B' Boys basketball crown Saturday night with a thrilling win over the pennant-winning Winston Churchill Bulldogs. Action was plentiful as the two clubs hooked up in the final of the four-day event. By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A packed house of enthusiastic rooters saw Coaldale's Kate Andrews Gaels come on strong in the fourth quarter to defeat the Winston Churchill Bulldogs 35- 31 in the championship final of the Southwest Zone "3" Boys high school basketball tournament Saturday night at the University of Lethbridge Fieldhouse. In the earlier game, the Stirling Lakers took third place in the tourney by outlasting the Picture Butte Sugar Kings 38-35 in another defensive battle. In the championship contest, the Gaels had to come-from-behind to defend their zone title as the Bulldogs had dominated most of the early going. Winston Churchill used a variety of full court and half court zone presses to excellent advantage in the second quarter. The Gaels were obviously rattled as the Bulldogs built up leads of as much as nine points. However, the G.aels regrouped and their hard- nosed man-to-man defense and disciplined pattern offense finally put them in the lead 29-28 with four minutes remaining. The contest went right down to the final seconds as Perry Mirkovich swished a jumper for Churchill to bring the Bulldogs within two with just over a minute left. Coach Glen Alexander's boys had several chances to knot the score in the final minute but just could not hit the bucket. Ewald Granson sank two free throws at the four second mark to insure victory for the Gaels. Granson paced the Gaels with 10 points while Leonard and Richard Boras each had eight. Mirkovich and Kendall Duce shared the scoring honors for the Bulldogs with 11 apiece. In the third place game, Stirling used a tight zone defense and the inside work of Marty Hirsche to fashion a five point lead at the half. Picture Butte.'s aggressive offensive rebounding brought the Sugar Kings back to knot the score at 28 by three quar- ter time. However, "they missed two free throws in the final half minute and the Lakers held on for the victory. The game was characterized by the cold shooting of both teams.

Cardston joins LCI Rains in provincial hoop final RAYMOND (Special) The Cardston Cougars picked up Southern Alberta's second berth to the provincial "A" boys' high school basketball championships next weekend in Calgary by downing the Magrath Zeniths 58-44 Saturday night in Raymond. The Cougars will join the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams next Friday and Saturday, March 15 and 16, in representing this area in the eight-team single- knockout Alberta finals. The Rams won the first berth by taking a 55-48 decision from the same Cougars last Friday night at the Civic Centre. In B division preliminary action on Saturday night, the Cardston Wildcats captured the junior varsity championship by edging the Magrath Eagles by a score of 50-40. In the "A" contest, the issue was never seriously in doubt as the Cougars jumped out to an early 11-point lead and led 37-18 at the half. Cardston maintained control in the second half to build the 14- point margin by the time the final buzzer sounded. The Cougars were paced by 22-point performance of Jim Toone. Don Yuill was also outstanding as he hooped 21. For the Zeniths, Tim Rollingston had 13 points while Kevin Anderson added 11. In the B division championship final, the Wildcats and Zeniths fought to a 20-20 stalemate in the first half, but Cardston came on strong in the second half to take the 10-point victory. Rick Bracha led the way for the Wildcats with a strong 23- point showing. Ralph West helped out with 16. For the Eagles, Vince Barker rimmed 17 points while Barry Aiehew added eight. Meanwhile, league president Jim Whitelaw announced Sunday that he will file a report with the Alberta Schools Athletic Association and the Southwest Zone regarding the shift in sites for Saturday's games. The contests were originally scheduled for Winston Churchill High School but the location was changed at the last minute by an informal decision of representatives of the teams from Cardston, Raymond and Magrath. At the present time, it is not known on what basis the games were played. However, it is certain that the referee assignment for the contests was for WCHS, and the referees were at that school on Saturday, although the four teams were at Raymond. Whitelaw stated Sunday that although it is highly unlikely that the matter will have any effect on Cardston's status in next weekend's provincial competition, he feels that the dispute merits a full investigation by zone and provincial organizations. Captain Scott Perrett accepted the third-place trophy for the Stirling Lakers, while Derek Redmond was presented with Winston Churchill's runner-up hardware. Coaldale's champion Gaels have no permanent captain, so the championship trophy was presented to them as a group. The boys also received medallions individually for their efforts in capturing the zone title for the third straight year. Coach Pius Labolevech thanked the spectators and the Coaldale community for their support. Meanwhile, the Gaels will travel to St. Paul, Alberta next Friday to defend their provincial title in an eight- team provincial "B" high school tournament. The Southwest Zone representative is perennially in the thick of things in provincial action, and this year should be no exception. Hoop Shots The "B" zone tournament features high school basketball at its best, with the basketball and the tourney organization both of a high calibre the majority of the teams emphasize a disciplined brand of pattern Coaldale does so with more success than anyone else There is very little free lance basketball and the teams seern to shy away from the fast break somewhat.
