Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Monlay, March 15, 1971 Play to full house in Taber Saturday evening Sugar Kings capture berth in league final By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer TABER (Staff) - A spark from the fire that destroyed the Lethbridge Arena Friday night was carried to Taber Saturday and it was a key factor in the Lethbridge Sugar Kings' two victories. Len Chalmers, literally caught fire Saturday evening, and playing like his britches were on fire, he flew around the Taber Civic Centre and led the Lethbridge Sugar Kings to a pair of 4-2 wins over the Edmonton Maple Leafs and in the process clinch a berth in the Alberta Junior Hockey League final. Chalmers, who had one goal in the game Friday before the Arena was destroyed by fire, scored four more Saturday evening as the lanky right-winger turned in his best performance in his three-year stint with the Sugar Kings. The Kings and Leafs played two periods Friday before the fire and the third period, 19 minutes and 25 seconds of it to be exact, were played Satur- PALMER WINS CITRUS - Arnold Palmer gves an ecstatic grin after finishing on the 18th hole with an 16-under-par, 270 for a win at the $125,000 Florida Citrus Open golf tourney here. Palmer happy with triumph ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Arnold Palmer scored his second victory of the golf season Sunday in the Florida Citrus Invitation and moved into the No. 1 money winning spot, but he wasn't a contented man. "There's a lot more I have to do than just winning," Pamler said with a grin. "Winning is important, and fun. But there are other things I have to do. "I haven't won a major title since 1964. That's the thing that's in my mind." He was referring to the Masters tournament, his last major triumph. Since then he has had a series of trials and troubles and was written off as a has-been. But he has bounced back many times. Now at age 41, with a victory in the Bob Hope Desert Classic early this season, he became the third double winner this season when he held off 51-year-old Julius Boros in the final round Sunday of the Florida Citrus. Palmer had a final 68, four under par on the 6,849-yard Rio Pinar Country Club course, finishing 18 under par at 270. Boros was one stroke back with a 69 for 271.

It was the 56th tour victory of his career, plus two in the Caribbean, plus two British Opens, plus two team championships. It was a two-man race between Palmer and Boros all the way. Kermit Zarley had a 69 for 273 and was alone in third. Jerry Heard, 69, and Tom Weis-kopf, 68, followed at 274. A group of four followed at 275. They were Frank Beard and Lionel Hebert, each 69, and Dave Stockton and Gibby Gilbert, each 70. Wilf Homeniuk of Winnipeg, the only Canadian to survive the cut, had a final-round 70 for a 286 total and a $200 share of prize money. Palmer and Boros were tied starting the final round, and Arnold made a quick move with three consecutive birdies starting on the second hole. But he went one over par on the seventh and eighth, each time missing the green. He went back to a two-stroke aid-vantage with a 10-foot birdie putt on the ninth but Boros teed it again on the 14th. Warriors defeated Lethbridge Wariors, unbeaten in Southern Alberta Juvenile League play, will be on the outside looking in when the provincial juvenile championships are held. Wariors were ousted from further play by Medicine Hat Wheelers. The Gas City crew dropped the locals 7-5 in Medicine Hat Saturday to win the two-game total-point series 16-11 and advance against Red Deer for the Alberta title. Wheelers won the first game 9-6 in Lethbridge. Red Deer sidelines Cougars RED DEER (CP)-Left-winger Mickey Girard didn't let a frac: tured wrist slow him down Sunday as he fired home three goals to pace Red Deer Rustlers to a 6-0 whitewash of Calgary Cougars in playoff action. The win gave the Rustlers a 4-1 victory in the best-of-seven semi-final series. They will meet Lethbridge Sugar Kings here next Saturday and Sunday for the first two games of a best-of-seveh final series. Games three and four will be played at Taber near Lethbridge March 24 and 25 because the Lethbridge arena was destroyed by fire Friday night. Girard fractured his wrist near the end of regular-season play and although he was wearing a cast throughout the playoffs, his three goals Sunday gave him five in the series. Leo McDougall added tw.o goals for the Rustlers and Terry Wedderburn rounded out their tally as 1,605 fans watched them take a 3-0 lead in the first period and add two unanswered goals in the second. Dale Henwood got the shutout by stopping 22 Calgary drives from an offence that had trouble cracking the Red Deer line. Scott Darling made 16 saves for Calgary before being pulled at the start of the third period in favor of Gord Lealke who made 11 saves. The Cougars took seven of 12 penalties, including a misconduct to Darrell Goss for talking to an official about a minor call on another player. Goss already was serving a minor penalty at the time. Blues win third title SUDBURY, Ont. (CP) - University of Toronto Blues fired four third-period goals Saturday to defeat St. Mary's University Huskies of Halifax 5-4 and win their third straight Canadian intercollegiate hockey championship. It was the Blues' fifth championship in six years. They went into the final period down 3-1 against the Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association champions, but goals by Gord Davies, Bill Buba, Terry Peterman and Brian St. John gave the Blues their comeback win. Mac Hickox scored the other Toronto goal. Ron Hindson scored twice for St. Mary's. Ken Martin and Ed Hebert scored once each. Toronto, the Ontario-Quebec Athletic Association champions, last year beat the Huskies 3-2 at Charlottetown, scoring with 14 seconds remaining in the championship game.

Badminton event sees 61 entries U n i v e r sity of Lethbridge badminton players dominated the annual city open championships staged at the Civic Centre Sunday. Joe Forrayi topped the men's singles event with a three-game triumph over Tim Erickson of the University. Forrayi lost the first game 17-15 but came back with 15-8 and 15-7 wins. In women's singles Monica Lemieszewski stopped Chris Fazio 11-5 and ll-l for the victory. Both are members of the University club. Erickson advanced to the final by downing Marv Kirchner, of the host Civic Centre Club, 15-3 and 15-5 while Forrayi ousted John Lay of the University 15-8 and 15-5. The men's doubles saw Forrayi combine with Harlon Bor-gaard also of the University to defeat Kirchner and Tony Kovacs 15-9 and 15-9. The winners advanced after trimming Erickson and Lay 15-8 and 15-12. Kirchner and Kovacs won out over Bud Burgess and Ti-bor Milasin of the Civic Centre Club, 15-3 and 15 8. Wendy Fox and Lemieszewski won the women's doubles 17-14 and 15-9 over Fazio and Irene Karia. Gerri Noble and June Bassett lost 15-3 and 15-8 to Fox and Lemieszweski in the semi-finals. Fazio and Karia downed Golden and Pot-tinger 18-15 and 15-3. Erickson and Fox joined forces and won the mixed doubles over Forrayi and Donna Kearns of the Civic Centre Club, 15-1 and 15-4. To reach the finals Fox and her partner defeated Borgaard and Lemieszewski 15-10, 10-15 and 15-7. Forrayi and Kearns emerged over Noble and Kirchner 6-15, 15-9 and 15-12. Some 61 entries from various parts of southern Alberta took part in the one-day event. Hunter, Delich win Pontiae Cup BANFF, Alta. (CP) - Rick Hunter of Ottawa and Theresa Delich of Rossland, B.C., won the men's and women's divisions of the Pontiae Cup ski racing series which ended at Lake Louise Saturday. Hunter, a 19-year-old student at Carleton University, slashed down the first slalom course of 61 gates in 48.79 seconds and down the second course of 56 gates in 46.26 for an aggregate time of one minute, 35.05 seconds, 25 points for first place and a total of 111 in the nine-race series. Miss Delich, a 17-year-old high school student, settled for a third place in the women's slalom but it was enough to give her 136 points and the title. She ran the 53-gate course in 56.67 seconds and the 52-gate course in 53.8 seconds for an aggregate of 1:50.47. Both the men's and women's slalom courses dropped about 500 feet over % of a mile. Weather was excellent. day before the start of fourth game of the series. Leafs led the game 2-1 heading into Saturday. The Kings were leading the series 2-0 in games. Lannie McDonald evened things up for the Kings before an enthusiastic full house in Taber as he beat Rene Alain at the 3:33 mark of the third period. McDonald's efforts set the stage for Chalmers heroics. Chalmers scored the winner at the 3:32 mark of the 10-minute overtime period and then put the icing on the cake with an empty-net marker with 14 seconds left in the game. The win gave the Kings a 3-0 margin in the best-of-seven series but the evening's work wasn't done. Keith Mackie and Terry Smith had scored for the Leafs Friday evening. Just after 9 p.m. the Kings and Leafs got the fourth game of the series under way. Dale Bowler gave the Leafs a 1-0 lead in the fourth game, scoring on a rebound at 10:42 of the first period. Chalmers tied it up at the :38 second mark of the second period and the Kings went ahead to stay as Garry Paskuski and George McC r e a beat Alain before the period was half over. Bowler narrowed the gap to 3-2 but that was the end of the Leafs' scoring. Chalmers sent the Taber gathering home happy with his second empty-net goal of the night. The Sugar King dressing room was as quiet as a cathedral after the games, or was it a game and half? They were quietly happy that the series, and Saturday night in particular, was over. Coach John Chapman best summed it up. "That was a heck of a good series. Those Leafs made it tough for us." Kings only won one game easily. Last weekend in Edmonton they came up with 2-0 and 6-3 wins to go with their 4-2 triumphs Saturday. "One down and a tough one to go," continued the coach. "It doesn't matter who comes out of the Red Deer - Calgary series, they'll be tough." The coach, who is a soft-spoken young student of the game, except when coaching in an actual game, was elated at the performance of Chalmers and his linemate McCrea. Sugar Kings will now meet Red Deer Rustlers in the best-of-seven league finals set to get under way this weekend in Red Deer. The first two games will be played in the central Alberta city and then the scene will switch to Taber for games a week Wednesday and Thursday at the Civic Centre. Further games will be played alternately between Red Deer ICE CHIPS - Ken Dodd, who saw double. - duty as a left winger Saturday, suffered a chipped tooth from a high stick and had his problems with the aching tooth during the game but he stayed in it . . . George McCrea showing pleasure in the game his linemate Len Chalmers turned in, "don't you newsmen bother Flipper, I got him going just the way I want him." . . . The Taber fans, along with a strong contingent from Lethbridge, were great ... It was like Taber had just adopted a new team . . . The general reaction from various fans was that they are looking forward to n^ore action now that the Kings are in the finals and without a home ... Rookies Randy Andreachuk and Dave George, joined linemate Dodd on the injured list, Andreachuk is working out a charleyhorse while George has a bad left knee . . . One group of people happy to see the game Saturday were the concessionaires as they ran out of hot dogs, coffee and there were very few chocolate bars and gum left... Misses meeting Frazier ailing NEW YORK (AP) - A post-fight verbal confrontation between heavyweights Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier failed to materialize Saturday when Frazier was knocked out of the meeting by reported ill* ness. Frazier, badly swollen about the eyes as the result of numerous Ali punches Monday night, did not attend a television meeting with the man he defeated in a 15-round decision. Yank Durham, manager of the world heavyweight boxing champion, also did not appear, so Ali went on alone and discussed his losing fight with ABC television announcer Howard Cosell. Ali, the right side of his Jaw still swollen from a vicious left hook that dropped him in the 15th round, again said he thought he had won the right and noted "if it wasn't for a swollen jaw I wouldn't have a scratch, not a mark on me." Ali also paid tribute to Frazier. "He's a heck of a fighter, the hardest puncher I've ever met. The talk about his left hook is not just talk." But he said he thought he could win a rematch "if there is a rematch. He can fall off his motorcycle. I can be in a plane crash." Frazier has a fondness for motorcycles; Ali has a fear of airplanes. mm ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES mi----- NATIONAL LEAGUE East Boston ... New York Montreal . Toronto .. Buffalo '.. Detroit ..
