Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 19, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Boys' champions Gaels emerge first in entire province C 0 a 1 d a I c Kate Andrews Gaels made history as they captured the Alberta senior high school "B" boys' basket- bail championship title ia Cal- gary over the weekend. The provincial title is a first for tho Coaldale school. The Gaels bested nine other Alberta teams in the two-day event which got under way Fri- day and concluded Saturday. En route to the championship title, the Gaels came up with brilliant defensive perform- ances to sideline Edmonton St. Numbers catch up with Hawks By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer The numbers game caught up with Chicago Black Hawks Sun- day afternoon and it couldn't have come at a better time for Detroit Red Wings. The Bed Wings, in a seesaw battle with Buffalo Sabres for the fourth and final playoff spot in the National Hockey League East Division, hadn't beaten Chicago in 16 regular season games and four playoff games in 1970. Goallcnder Hoy Edwards posted his sixth shutout of Uie year at Chicago and Detroit ended its three year drought with a 2-0 win to remain dead- locked with Sabres who shelled Toronto Jfaple Leafs 5-1 in a night contest. "I guess you could call It the law of said Detroit coach Johnny Wilson. "But I'd have to say that my team played awfully well." Elsewhere Sunday, Peter Jla- hovlich completed a four-goal weekend when his second of the game at Philadelphia lifted Montreal Canadiens into a 4-4 lie with the Flyers, Boston Bruins crusted Atlanta Flame.? 7-1 led by Jot-nny Bucyk's two goals, New York Rangers downed St. Louis Blues 3-r as ex-Blues' winger Mike Murphy scored twice, and California Golden Seals blanked Minnesota Ko-th Stars 2-0. Buffalo pulled into a fourth- place tie the Wings Satur- day when they tied Montreal 3-3 while Detroit was idle. In other games Saturday, To- ronto surprised the Bangers, who blew a three-goal lead, 7-5; New York Islanders upset St. Louis 6-4; Atlanta turned back Chicago 3-2; Vancouver Ca- nucks romped 6-1 against Pitts- burgh Penguins and Minnesota edged Los Angeles Kings 4-3. The Rangers and Minnesota meet in a key game at Min- neapolis Tuesday night while the fledgling Islanders and ail- ing Californians square away in a meaningless game at New York. Seals' owner Charles 0. Pin- ley admitted Sunday night after a weekend meeting vath dis- sident players that tho NHL hoard of governors offered last week to purchase his 'finan- cially-plagued franchise. "We were on top of the Hawks the whole way and the few chances they did get were taken care of by said Wilson whose Wings had been resiing for the encounter since a 5-4 loss at Detroit Fri- day night. Hawks, on the otter hand, were coming off a tough en- counter at Atlanta with only about 16 hours rest and coach Billy Reay said "the legs just weren't there in the second and third "And we were badly out- played." jiickey Redmond's 46lh goal of the year at ol the sec- ond period with Chicago's Pit Martin in the penalty box was all the offence Edwards needed. The veteran goaltcnder made 25 saves but the only two he could recall were by Jerry Ko- rab who "nearly cracked my right elbow when he came ir from the left side in the first period." "Then, in the last period, he got off a good shot down to slot during a power play." END WIN LESS STREAK Tho Sabres, held scoreless in tho first period, rammed, three goals past Toronto goalie Ro Low in the middle period aiv went on to end an eight-gam winless string. Craig Ramsay, Hick Martin and rookie defenceman Larry Carriere were the second-perio marksmen and the Leafs neve recovered despite a brief rail early in the final period whe Darryl Sittier counted on Rogc Crozier. The Bruins spotted Atlanta 1-0 Jead on Curt Bennett's goa early in (he game, but vetera Jacques in trada from Toronto two week the Flames off afte that. Mary's 32-24, oust Brooks 54-39 in the semi-final and defeat Tofield 44-29 in the champion- ship final. A strong defensive alignment proved to be the big factor for the Gaels' weekend success. During the weekend outing, the Gaels gave up only 82 points on the Scoreboard for an aver- age points per game. "I'd have to say our defen- sive game was the winning1 fac- tor ou tho comment- ed Gaels' coach Pius Labole- vech. "Tlie boys' played exception- ally well on defence and it was obviously an all round team he said. "Whenever a player got rapp- ed or missed an assisgnment, there was always someone UKTC cover him he added. In the championship game aturday night, the Gaels de- ensive game was slick but ould easily have bsen upstag- ed by their offensive attack. The Gaels toppled the Tofield Hans 44-29 by shooting an im- ressive 51 per cent from the ield. Ray Lister and Ed Lick cd the Gaels' superb shooting lercentage with an 88.7 and 50 r cent averages respectively.
