Shot blocked Pittsburgh Penguins' centre Syl Apps (26) looks back to see his shot blocked by New York Islanders' goalie Bill Smith during first period action in their National Hockey League game Wednesday night. Falling between them is New York defenceman Dennis Potvin The two clubs fought to a 1-1 stalemate. Experience may be a good teacher, but could Vrsuliak be better? By GORDON GRANT CP SPORTS EDITOR Bern, Switzerland (CP) Experience may be a good teacher, but it could be that Wally Ursuliak is better. At least, that is a conclusion that could have been drawn after the sixth round of the World Curling Championship Wednesday when Switzerland beat Canada 5-3. Ursuliak of Edmonton, who played lead on Hec Gervais 1961 world champion rink, has helped coach the young Swiss they apparently learned a lot. While Gervais was a world champion 13 years ago and has been curling for 25 years, his rink wasn't good enough for the Swiss, falling behind in the first end and never recovering. In today's seventh round the games scheduled are: Canada vs Italy, France vs Sweden, Scotland vs Germany, the United States vs Switzerland and Denmark vs Norway. In the eighth it is: Canada vs Sweden, Switzerland vs Scotland, Norway vs France, Denmark vs Germany and the U.S. vs Italy. After six rounds the Swiss are alone at the top of the 10- team standing with a 6-0 won- lost record, next comes Sweden at 5-1 and then Canada and tb? U.S. at 4-2. Germany is 3-3, Scotland, Denmark and Norway 2-4 and Italy and France 1-5. Other sixth-round results: Sweden 9 Italy 2, Denmark 4 Scotland 3 in an extra end, Norway 7 Germany 5, and the U.S. 12 France 2. In the fifth round, Canada beat Scotland 3-2, Switzerland beat Germany 6-4, Sweden beat the U.S. 54, Norway beat Italy 8-7 and France edged Denmark 5-4. The Swiss-Canada game re- ceived all the attention of a crowd of 7.000 at the Allmend ice rink. The Swiss crew of skip Peter AtUnger, 23. third Berni Attinger. the skip's 20-year- old brother, second Mathias Neuenschwander, 21, and Jurg Geiler, 20, stole three in the first end and never looked back. The Canadian crew of Ger- vais, third Ron Anton, second Warren Hansen and lead Senior hoop finals ready The 1973-74 Alberta senior men's basketball championship finals will be staged at Cardston over the weekend. Eight clubs will take part in the provincial championship playoffs which has been organized into a two-day double knockout tourney. Calgary will have four entries in the weekend tourney which includes YMCA Rammers, Penny Lane Maulers, Rosca Pix and Cascades. The city of Edmonton will have a pair of entries in the LDS and Host Rent-A-Car while the two remaining teams will be Claresholm and the host Cardston Kearl's and Western Sport. Action will get underway with four games Friday night and will conclude with three Saturday. Game times slated for Friday are 5 p.m., p.m., 8 p.m. and p.m. while tilts ready for Saturday are set for 9 a.m.. 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Minor hockey John Csurka rifled in three straight goals and led the Totems to a 4-1 victory over the Bisons in a Pee Wee playoff game Wednesday night. Mark Gretzinger chipped in with a solo effort in the win while Roy Husch replied for ihp Bisons. Darrel Sutton were struggling throughout. "When you get down three against young fellows like that it's pretty tough to get said Gervais after the game. "We were in trouble all the way through. We had to start taking chances and putting out front guards. "We were never allowed to play our kind of game. He hit everything.... and we couldn't get our two back." For Attinger it was the big- gest thrill in curling. "But, I'm afraid of he said after the game. "There's a lot more curling yet and he's the man to beat." He said that attending Ursu- liak's seminars and clinics in Sweden had taught his rink a lot. "We've also played a few games against Ursuliak and other Canadian friends of his and it taught us a lot about strategy." The game was decided on the first end when the Swiss stole three. With Sutton missing his first two shots, Gervais found him- self in trouble.
