Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THI IETHBRIDOI HERALD - Friday, March 19, 1971 ANDY CAPP Locals seek Alberta titles Elks to host Red Deer Lethbridge. Midget Elks will seek the Alberta midget title over the course of the next two weeks while the local Bantam A.C.T. squad will do battle for the bantam "A" title. Both the Elks and A.C.T. must get by Red Deer clubs to win provincial honors. Clifford goes back to school TORONTO (CP) - Betsy Clifford, the girl Canadian ski officials pick to win a World Cup eventually, is going back to school. All-Stars see action The M and K All-Stars make their bid for the Alberta Intermediate B Hockey semi-finals as they don their blades twice this weekend. The All-Stars will tangle the Edmonton Grads in a two game total goal series starting Saturday night in Claresholm and finishing Sunday afternoon in Taber. Saturday's action in Clares-holm will commence at 8:30 while the final match between the two clubs is slated for 2 p.m. Sunday in Taber. The All-Stars made up with players in the City Recreation Hockey League moved into the semi-finals ousting the St. Paul Rockets 9-5 in a two game total goal series last weekend. The Grads on the other hand picked up a victory over Edmonton Jasper Place to move a notch up the play-off ladder. The winners of this series will then meet head-on with Peace River for the championship final. Meanwhile, in City Recreation Hockey League final playoff action the Labor Club and St. Basil's meet in the second game of the best of five series Sunday night. St. Basil's opened the series with a 4-2 victory Wednesday night and holds a one game edge. Action will start at 6 p.m. at the Adams Ice Centre. Ed Creed, alpine competition chairman for the Canadian Ski Association, said Thursday the 17-year-old suspended star is "going back to school for the rest of the season." "Then, in early spring, her father, the CSA, Betsy and her coach, will meet to work out the various problems," he said. "Hopefully, we can clear the way for her to continue in competition next year. The family agrees with this." Creed says Betsy, sent home from the national team for breaking curfew, has been "cramming" to get her junior matriculation certificate. "She's going to need extra cramming and tutoring to get it," Creed said. "I think it's a wise move. She has been under a lot of pressure. Now she can concentrate on her schooling and come back with the pressure lessened. 'VIOLENT YEAR' "It has been a violent year for her. She still wants to win the World Cup and she can win it. She has the ability." Earlier in the day, her father, John Clifford, said in Ottawa that his daughter "would not return to the ski circuit" this season. Al Raine, national team director, and Peter Franzen, coach of the women's team, announced Betsy's suspension following the United States championships in Aspen, Colo., last weekend. "Betsy said she missed curfew only once and that time she was half an hour late. . . . She doesn't feel she was given a chance to explain." Betsy was not available for comment, leaving her father to carry her end of the dispute. Creed said he had asked the young ski star not to talk to reporters. cMoore's Esso Service Cor. 3rd Ave. and Mayor Magrath Driv Drive DRIVE IN HERE FOR TOP AUTO SERVICE. GET THE BEST FOR YOUR CAR.

Locals in Red Deer Saturday and Sunday Sugar Kings embark on final series By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer Lethbridge Sugar Kings are without a home but not without an objective. Saturday and Sunday the Sugar Kings will be in Red Deer to meet the Rustlers in the first two games of a best-of-seven Alberta Junior Hockey League final for the right to represent Alberta on the trail which will eventually see a national champion declared. Sugar Kings, who will entertain the Rustlers next Wednesday and Thursday at the Taber Civic Centre, and Red Deer have been this route before with the Kings coming out on top the last time they met in the league finals; That was in the 1968-69 season and the Kings had a home. There is no home to come home to, in a sense, for the Kings, and yet there just might be. "All we need to hear is that there will be a new rink for us in the not too distant future," said Sugar King manager Syd Hall, "and it could be the incentive we need in the finals." The Lethbridge Arena fell short in its objective of reaching its 50th anniversary a week ago tonight when fire destroyed the Lethbridge landmark. Talk has it that a decision on a new rink may be forthcoming. This is what Hall and the Kings are hoping for. In the meantime, Taber is the foster home for the Kings and except for the surroundings, it was just like home last weekend. As one Sugar King put it "It was just playing in Lethbridge, the fans were great." Kings could see a lot of action in Taber before this season is out. More than one hockey expert feels the winner of the Lethbridge  Red Deer series could represent the west in the national final and the dominion championship will be staged at the home of the Western champs. For the Kings, however, their thoughts are confined to defeating the Rustlers. That, says coach John Chapman, is the main objective. Chapman was beaming after his charges had ousted Edmonton Maple Leafs in four straight games. Red Deer went five games before disposing of Calgary Cougars. "We had a tough series with the Leafs," said Chappy, "They made us play hockey." For the Kings, it may be a blessing in disguise. "We have an almost injury, free club," added Hall. "Rookie linemates Dave George and Randy Andreachuk had a sore knee and Charley-horse respectively but th�j seem to be over them now." While the Rustlers and Cougars were pounding it out the Leafs made the King skate and skate and skate some more. It may have been Leafs downfall as the Kings rose to the chat lenge and heading into the finals are in top shape. They have, it may be said, reached the fine peak of excellence they will need against the Rustlers. McKenzie blinks light three times Perreault eclipses rookie goal standard The Elks will have home ice advantage Staurday as they meet Red Deer at Adams Ice Centre at 8:30 in the first game of a two-game, total-point series. The second game will be played in Red Deer next Saturday. Meanwhile the A.C.T. travel to Red Deer for a Saturday afternoon encounter before playing host a week Saturday in their two-game, total - point final. Medicine Hat Huskies fell victim to the high-flying Elks in the southern Alberta final. The locals belted the Gas City club 16-11 in the two-game set with centre Marty Maxwell leading the way. Young Maxwell, who scored 28 goals and added 16 assists in the Southern Alberta Juvenile League this year, picked up five goals and six helpers in the series with the 'Hat and will be counted on heavily to lead the way against Red Deer. According to team officials the Elks are fit without any serious injuries h a m p ering them and are raring to go. It was also announced today that the Elks will meet the Lethbridge Oldtimers March 31st at the Civic Centre in a game to raise money for minor hockey. The game is being arranged by the Lethbridge Elks Lodge. OHA won't play west TORONTO (CP) - The On tario Hockey Association's Jun ior A division is adamant-it won't play for the Memorial Cup this season except against the winners of the Quebec Junior Hockey League. President Tubby Schmalz said Thursday following a meeting of representatives of OHA Junior A teams, that the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association will be informed of the decision. The dispute arose when the CAHA announced that the Western Canada Hockey League, newly admitted to the CAHA from its old outlaw status, would be allowed to use a number of over-age players in the Memorial Cup playoffs. The cup goes to the top junior club in the country. LEAGUES BALKED The OHA and the Quebec leagues balked at what they said was an unfair advantage given the West and declined to meet a western representative in the playoffs. The CAHA asked the OHA clubs to reconsider their stand and the Thursday meeting was held. The news statement released was terse: "The OHA major junior A group is unanimous in its previous stand of proceeding with the Memorial Cup finals with the winners of the Quebec Junior Hockey League " By THE CANADIAN PRESS Gil Perreault, thle Buffalo Sabres centre favored to win the National Hockey League's Rookie-of-the-Year award, improved his chances Thursday night by scoring the 35th goal of his first season in the league. The 20-year-old sensation set an NHL record for goals by a rookie by counting No. 35 as the Sabres defeated St. Louis Blues 5-3. Perreault, who received a standing ovation from Buffalo fans after he scored at 15:43 of the second period, broke the record of 34 goals shared by Nels Stewart of the old Montreal Maroons, Danny Grant of Minnesota North Stars and Norm Ferguson of Oakland Seals, now California Golden Seals. Stewart set the original mark in the 1925-26 season in a 36-game schedule and Grant and Ferguson both tied it in the 76-game 1968-69 season. In other games Thursday night, Philadelphia Flyers edged New York Rangers 2-1, Boston Bruins downed Detroit Red Wings 7-3, Montreal Cana-diens beat Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 and Los Angeles Kings beat Chicago Black Hawks 3-2. CAME ON STRONG Perreault, one of the main reasons the Sabres are in fifth place in the strong East Divi sion, ahead of Detroit and Van couver Canucks, had scored only 17 goals and 16 assists in 43 games up to the all-star game Jan. 19. But since then he has scored 18 more goals in 27 games and picked1 up 12 assists As an amateur, Perreault scored 51 goals and 70 assists with Montreal Junior Canadiens of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A series and established himself as the most sought-after junior in Canada. Buffalo and Vancouver had the first chance to grab him in the expansion draft but Buffalo coach Punch IirJach won him in the spin of a carnival-like wheel of fortune and immediately predicted a banner year for the Victoriaville, Que. native. Dick Duff, Don Marshall, Eddie Shack and Reg Fleming also scored for the Sabres Thursday night. Garry Unger, Frank Huck and Wayne Con nelly replied for the Blues. The Flyers, battling with Pittsburgh Penguins for the fourth playoff spot in the West Division, increased their lead over the fifth-place Penguins to seven points with their win over the Rangers. The Penguins have eight games left in the schedule and the Flyers nine. The Flyers, displaying strong checking, got goals from Chris Schmautz and Bobby Clarke, gaining a measure of revenge on the Rangers, who whipped them 7-2 Friday. Walt Tkaczuk scored New York's goal. Bruce Gamble was in goal for the Flyers, filling in for the injured Doug Favell who suffered a concussion Wednesday when he fell during a practice session. The Bruins extended their home-ice unbeaten streak to 26 games with their win over the Red Wings. Johnny McKenzie paced the Bruins with three goals while scoring leader Phil Esposito Toronto played without for- scored his 63rd and 64th. Wayne wards Paul Henderson, Nbrnj Carleton continued his scoring Ullman and Brian Spencer, pace, scoring his seventh goal Spencer, the latest among the in the last five games.
