Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta  - THI UTHIRIDOI HERALD - Monday, March 22, 1*71 We can still win claims coach Chapman Sugar Kings drop a pair of tough battles By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer RED DEER - It was a quiet bus ride home for the Leth-bridge Sugar Kings Sunday night after dropping a pair of Alberta Junior Hockey League final games here over the weekend. "There isn't much to be happy about when you lose two games like we did," said coach John Chapman as the dejected Kings filed slowly from their dressing room after a tough 3-2 loss Sunday night before 1,739 fans. Kings lost 3-1 Saturday with 1,751 looking on and how trail Red Deer Rustlers 2-0 in the best-of-seven filial. The third and fourth games will be played Wednesday and Thursday in Taber with game times both evenings set for 8:30. "We played well enough to win both games," continued Chapman. The first-year coach was visibly disappointed at the outcome of the weekend set. "I wanted at least a split here, it would have made things easier," the coach pointed out. If consolation can be found in losing twice it could be the fact the Kings are heading home to friendly surroundings. Chapman conceded he thought there would be a big difference playing at home with the crowd on their side. If one thing bothered the coach it was the fact the Kings FRASEr ROBERTSON Broken note Saturday All-Stars beaten out in playoffs The M and K Allstars' bid for the Alberta Intermediate "B" Hockey crown fell to the way side as they were trimmed 11-10 in a two-game total goal series by the Edmonton Grads . over the weekend. Saturday night the two clubs opened up the semi-final playoffs in Claresholm and finished off with the final game in Taber Sunday afternoon. In Claresholm the Grads clicked at the 19:53 mark of the final period and came up with a 7-6 comeback victory over the Allstars. The Grads started out quickly holding a solid 3-1 lead after the first period but found themselves battling back in the third as the Allstars fought back to lead 5-4 after the second. Dennis Allen and Al Rown-tree each tallied twice for the Allstars while Ken Magwood and Tim Negrello managed a goal apiece. Sunday afternoon in Taber the Allstars couldn't hang onto a 2-0 first period lead and were forced to settle with a 4-4 tie leaving them one goal short of the mark. Tex Wiebe and Jerry Heck gave the Allstars the 2-0 first period lead while Dick Cusson added one more in the second as the Grads cut down the gap to 3-2 after 40 minutes of play. Bruce Annabell rounded out the Allstars' scoring with a third period marker. Edmonton will now meet Peace River in the championship final this coming weekend.

Some 150 top Alberta swimmers competed for a chance to be picked as a member of the Alberta team which will compete against teams from British Columbia and the Pacific north west next month. Wendy Kastings of the local club should be assured a spot on the team as she picked up two first place finishes and a second.

Bruchet picked up three goals and a helper while Maxwell blinked the light twice along with three assists. Bruchet opened the scoring at the 9:00 mark, giving the Labor Club a slim 1-0 lead after the first period of play, then watched Doug Han-old come back to tie the contest early in the second. Maxwell tallied his first marker midway through the second and gave the Labor Club the lead once again only to see it matched by Bob Bal-azs 25 seconds later.

"Any kind of a break would have helped," the coach stated. "They Just wouldn't come." It was � poorly played second period Saturday and a defensive mistake Sunday that proved to be the big differ-erence. Rustlers, defending league champions, took advantage of sloppy Lethbridge play to score two unanswered second Swift Current Broncos and Calgary Centennials.

Alcindor easy victor NEW YORK (AP) - Lew Alcindor, the 7foot-2 superstar who turned Milwaukee's expansion team from a last-place club into a division winner in two years, was named Saturday the Most Valuable Player in the National Basketball Association. Alcindor won the award by the biggest margin since the honor was established in 1956, taking 133 first-place votes, 10 seconds and three thirds for 698 points in the balloting by NBA players. Jerry West on Los Angeles was second with 166 points. Alcindor, No. 1 draft choice in the NBA two years ago, led the league in scoring this season, averaging more than 31 points a game as he shot the Bucks to the Midwest Division title. DROUGHT ENDS SAN DIEGO (AP) - Jack Evans scored his first goal in 184 Western Hockey League games Saturday, triggering San Diego to an 8-1 rout of Salt Lake City's Golden Eagles before 10,386. The veteran defenceman scored his first goal since Nov. 27, 1968, beating goalie Rick Cbarron in the first period. period goals Saturday. That made the difference, Brian Ogilvle scored a pair for the Rustlers while Leo Mc-Dougall added a singleton. Lanny McDonald replied for the Sugar Kings. McDonald's marker gave the Kings a 1-0 lead. Sunday Dwayne Bolkoway scored the winning goal midway through the third period as he was left all alone in front of Sugar King netminder John Davidson and fired a high shot past the King goalie who was down after stopping a shot by McDougall. Doug Stumpf and McDougall completed the Red Deer scoring. Garry Paskuski and Archie McLennan tallied the Lethbridge markers. Saturday night Kings out-shot the Rustlers 30-27 but had trouble beating Dale Henwood.* Sunday, Red Deer made Davidson block 32 shots while Henwood came up with 24 saves. Kings are on the limp for their next two games. Saturday night Paskuski and then George McCrea were felled by shots. Paskuski had his left ankle frozen and McCrea his right instep. Both continued to play, but at a slowed pace. Davidson very nearly didn't dress Saturday. The flu bug hit the netminder early Saturday morning and it was feared he would not be able to play. He did, however, and turned in an outstanding weekend. Possibly the most serious and yet needless injury was suffered by Fraser Robertson. The Sugar King captain was dropped by a right hand from Don Bolkoway as the Lethbridge playc* was bent over to pick up his stick and gloves during ft: third period brawl. "I didn't even see it coming said Robertson, "he Just let fly for no apparent reason." Robertson's nose was badly broken by the blow and may cause him some troubles; The needless part of the injury was that it need not have happened had referee Bill Bucyk been in control of the game at the precise moment of the brawl. It all came about as a result of a penalty shot awarded Dave George of the Kings after Rustler defenceman Dennis Resch put his hand on the puck in the crease. George missed the penalty shot and the Red Deer bench emptied to congratulate net-minder Henwood. On their way to congratulate the goalie at least three players took a shot at George, verbally and bodily. It was then the flood gates opened and the benches emptied. All players on both sides were penalized, while coaches Chapman and Alf Cadman of Red Deer were fined $25 after being assessed gross mis conducts. The incident brought about 284 minutes in penalties and set a record for the league. Kings will skate tonight and again Tuesday in preparation for the Taber games. "We can beat them at home," said Chapman. "This thing is a long way from over. It's not like we're down 3-0." ICE CHIPS - Red Deer coach Alf Cadman not sure he'll like playing in a beet farmer's arena . . . Reference, of course, made to the fact the Rustlers and Kings play in Taber Wednesday and Thursday . . . Garry Paskuski and George McCrea had their feet frozen for Sunday's game but hopes are the three days rest will help . . . Lethbridge coach John Chapman appalled at the verbal abuse he was forced to take in the two games . More than once he was told he stunk, was a pig and a slob . . . Reference was also made to members of his family . One Sugar King player saying the Red Deer fans belong in St. George's Island . . . Randy Andreachuk talking to himself after Sunday's game ... He m i s s e d on a breakaway and then hit a goalpost late in the game . . . Red Deer figure to have a few fains in Taber since Taber and Lethbridge people are such bitter enemies . . . Sugar King coach Chapman still believes the series will be settled in seven games ... He just doesn't like the idea of having to go to Red Deer twice more if it does.
