Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, 17, TM UTHMIDG1 HWAIO on at LCI Cougars, Zeniths still in, chalk up wins on Friday By LI.OVD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "A bad.' 50-50 chance isn't too defending champion That's their net "When you're in their end, soys coach Har- old Osmond, second from the left. Osmond'i Midget Elks host Red Deer Sunday afternoon ot Henderson, Ice Centre at in the first game of a two-game, total goal series for the Alberta Midge? championship. With Osmond are, left to right, Kevin Keith, Bernie Syrenne, Randy Lowe and Ron Moser. Ontario wins schoolboy title Experience made it easier MONCTON, N.B. (CP) If at] first you don't succeed, try the third time. Mark McDonald did and it re- sulted in the Canadian school- boy curling championship for the Ontario student. With his experience from two previous schoolboy tournaments playing a large role, the 17- year-old skip from Gananoque secondary school defeated Que- bec's Serge Cote 8-4 in a sud- den-death playoff game to cap- ture the title in the 27th year of the competition. "Definitely, the experience in the 1971 and 1972 championships said McDonald, who pulled off the best shot of the week in the Ilth and final round Friday afternoon, when he picked up six points to defeat "Nova Scotia. "I sort of knew what it was all about; you had to keep calm the whole scnedule throughout the week had to he organized ana you just couldn' go wild, you had to know and pace yourself." It was the first national com petition for other members o his Lloyd Emmer son, second Philip Tomseti em lead Jon Clare. They advanced to the playoff ith a brilliant come-from-be- lind 11-9 triumph over Bill Campbell of Dartmouth, N.S., n the final game of the 11-rink ound-robin tournament. Ontario fell behind 9-7 after nine ends when headed one of the best rinks from Nova Scotia in many four. With McDonald's last rock to Tincher was best at Policemen's come on the 10th, he was facing a Nova Scotia stone which was WINNIPEG (CP) The Sas-! katchewan rink skipped by Dick Tincher Regina captured the Canadian policemen's curling championship Friday, defeating Alberta 8-2 to complete the tournament with an 11-0 record. The Tincher foursome, run- ner -up last year to another rink from Alberta, stole four in the sixth end to put the game out of the roach of Bob Morrison's Lethbridge rijik. The British Columbia rink, skipped by Neil Dickson of Vic- toria, lost 8-7 to Ottawa's Bob Nicholson in the final round to finish second with nine wins against two losses. Nicholson's D-3 record gave him third place. Tincher's RCMP rink, with Ray Croy third, Bruce Paynter second and Ken Fader lead, had its toughest match on the Eirst day of play Monday, edg- ing Dickson 7-6. "They curled said Tincher. "Northern Ontario gave us our next best run. None of them was easy." In other final-round games, Prince Edward Island defeated Quebec 8-6, Nova Scotia downed Manitoba 12-7, Newfoundland lying no. 3. A poor shot would have likely sent the game into an extra end as Ontario had enough for the tie. However, McDonald took out the rock when he punched it be- tween one biting the eight-loot circle and another biting the 12, about a 13-inch port. "I'll admit I thought that was .it after the said the I Grade 13 student. "But I blanked that end out of my mind and just thought abou playing the 10th." Emmerson said McDonald's experience was the main factor in Ontario winning, "I had complete confidence in him ha kept us in there." The playoff game, the first since 1964 in Regina, whc three rinks took part, was dead locked 4-4 after eight ends. But on Hie ninth, Col wrecked on guards with his las shot, and pushed in an Ontario stone which gave them three in Southern Alberta still has its' two entries in the running for the Alberta senior high school boys' basketball championship title after first round action ceased at the Lethbridge Col- legiate Institute Friday night.

The Cowboys came out fight- ing right from the opening toss- up and used an effective full- court press which had the Cougars stymied. After the first eight minutes of play, the Cowboys held a commanding 17-6 lead and extended it to 23-9 midway through the second quarter. The Cowboys' superb offen- sive and defensive attack seem- ed to be flowing smoothly along until it hit a snag at the mark of the second quarter. The Cougars changed their zone defence to a full-court press which stopped the Cow- boys dead in their tracks. By half time, the Cougars managed to cut their deficit to five points.

With 41 seconds left, Cougars lost possession of Uie ball and gave the Cowboys the break they needed. The Cowboys looked for an opening for a sure basket as the clock dwindled.
