ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall_______________________Phone 32B-3201 Palace Pats even, thump locals 7-3 It's a weil known fact that a cornered animal has nothing to do but fight his way out. This is not to say that the Taber Palace Pats are animals. But their performance the last two games of the Central Alberta Junior "B" Hockey League playoffs have been a case of fighting their way out. Pats, southern division pennant-winners, were put squarely in a corner by the Lethbridge Native Sons last weekend as the locals chalked up two straight wins in a best- of-five final. Taber, ice Tuesday, slapped the Sons 8-3 jand then followed up with a 7-3 'triumph Wednesday night at Henderson Ice Centre before better than 800 fans. Aaron tunes up with home run ASSOCIATED PRESS Hank Aaron began tuning up for Babe Ruth's home run record Wednesday, keynoting a day of long-ball activities in baseball's training camps. Aaron, one shy of Ruth's fa- mous 714 career record, wal- loped his first spring home run Secretariat is alright? WASHINGTON (AP) Mrs. Penny Tweedy, owner of famed Secretariat and Riva Ridge, said Wednesday night that the retired millionaire thoroughbreds have" appar- ently come through as stud horses. Mrs. Tweedy, whose Meadow Stables syndicated the two thoroughbreds for million, told the Washington Press Club that two mares serviced by Riva Ridge have passed the critical 23-day pe- riod and one serviced by Triple Crown winner Secre- tariat has reached 22 days "with no report that the mare has come back in season." "We have every expectation they are well she said to the applause of the primarily female press club. On Secretariat's fertility, Mrs. Tweedy said: "He breaks last in his races and comes on in the stretch. to pace Atlanta Braves to a 9-8 decision over Houston Astros. The Braves snapped a tie in the ninth inning on Mike Lum's bases-loaded St. Louis Cardinals. New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals also used the home run to help win games.

Thurman Munson cracked four hits, including a homer, in the Yankees' 18-3 decision over Baltimore Orioles. Munson teamed with Bill Sudakis, Jim Ray Hart and Celerino Sanchez to drive in 13 runs. Orlando Cepeda, in his first spring game, and Carl Yastr- zemski each slugged two-run homers to power the Red Sox to a 7-2 success over Minnesota Twins. John Mayberry drove in four runs on three singles and his first home run of the spring season, pacing the Royals to a 12-1 rout of Texas Rangers.

I f The back-to-back victories has turned the earlier five- game series into a one game showdown for all the marbles. That game goes tonight at in the Taber Civic Centre and it should be a barn burner to say the least. They were hanging from the rafters of Henderson Ice Centre Wednesday and all indications point to the same turnout tonight. The Native Sons led 3-2 after the opening 20 minutes but failed to beat Taber netminder Lonny Howg the rest of the way. Pats, on the other, scored two unanswered goals in the second period and three more in the third for the win. Neil Goruk and Marty Fritz paced the Pats with two goals each. Single markers came off the sticks of Dennis Setoguchi, Stuart Cleland and Dale Setoguchi. Rod Pocza, before he was benched after an altercation with coach Bob McDonald, Joe Meli and Glen Schiebner replied for the Native Sons. A total of 20 penalties were whistled down by referee Bruce Cook of Medicine Hat, each club got the nod on 10. A pair of fights saw each club take two majors. Pocza and Gary Smith exchanged blows in the first period with neither a clear-cut winner. However, Smith bit off a little more than he could chew in the third and lost a decision to Meli. LOOSE PUCKS Taber were the better club at getting the puck out of their own end Wednesday Native son goalie Gary Warner made some great stops and had little chance of stopping at least six of the seven goals that beat him Lonnie Howg, at the other end, wasn't tested that severely but did rise to the occasion when called upon Eight of the 20 penalties called in the game were the result of high sticking, not really called for. But one can't blame the referee... If the fellows want to get their sticks up into each others faces, he has to call it.
