Red Wings to get south vacation By THE CANADIAN PRESS Red Berenson and Tim Eccle-stone won't mist their all-expense paid southern vacation after all, and this year it's coming even earlier than before. The two National Hockey League forwards were traded early in February to Detroit Red Wings from St. Louis, where Blues owner Sid Salomon Jr. took his players south for a free vacation at the end of the season. But coach Doug Barkley announced in Detroit Monday that the Red Wings will be treated to a free trip south this year. And because the sorry Wings, now in sixth spot in the East Division, will miss the playoffs, they can leave that much earlier The vacation was Barkley's idea but it will be paid for by owner Bruce Norris. All players, their families, managers and scouting staff will go. Barkley said he hoped the hoi iday would help the team get off to a better start next season. "It's been a bad season. . Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong," he said. "We have many new players, we want them to get acquainted ,. for the families to get ac quainted. We want to become a team again." Barkley said the team will leave April 12 for a resort owned by Norris at Homosassa on Florida's west coast about 72 miles from Tampa. He said the vacation would last' at least a week, and longer if the players wish. There were no games played Monday night but that didn't eliminate the worry of player injuries. CASHMAN HURT Wayne Cashman, high-scoring left-winger with Boston Bruins, suffered cuts and bruises when his car was in collision with cement truck in the Boston area. The Bruins said Cashman was released from hospital after treatment for superficial cuts over the right eye and right knee, superficial corneal lacera were no knockdowns Monday night. Sterling, a 22-year-old Jamai can now living in London, won the title seven months ago from Mark Rowe of England. He outpointed Kaha Managa in New Zealand and fought Tony Mundine to a draw in Australia in his two previous defences. Louw, 26, a native of Paarl, South Africa and a former amateur champion of the Transvaal, is a third-year physical education student at the University of Alberta. He took the earlier rounds with his harder punching, but Sterling, the better boxer, rallied to take four of the last five rounds. Louw had never gone 15 rounds before. Sterling, a third-year law stu dent at Kingsway University, won the 10th, 11th, 12th and 15tb rounds. By the fifth round, both boxers were bleeding. Sterling weighed in Monday afternoon at 159% and Louw at 158%. Louw at six feet one inch is an inch taller than Sterling and his reach of 71 inches is also an inch greater than the champion's. It was the first British Empire fight in Canada since Dick Tiger of Nigeria fought Wilf Greaves of Edmonton here in 1960. Three fights preceded the evening's main event. Fraser Scott of Seattle won a unanimous decision over Billy Marsh of Las Vegas in a 10-round middleweight match and Al Ford of Edmonton increased h i s professional lightweight record to 38 wins by defeating Willy KeiUy of Glasgow in 10 rounds. Wally Jolinston of Calgary scored a technical knockout at two minutes 26 seconds of the first round over BillyYoung of fight scheduled to go four rounds. tions in the right eye and right hand injury for which x-rays proved negative. The club said it was not known immediately whether the 21-year-old Kingston native would join his team-mates for their game Wednesday night against the Black Hawks in Chicago.

General manager Bud Poile said his other two goalies, George Gardner and Dune Wilson, have complained of not getting enough ice time so they now will be able to share the remaining eight games. But Poile said their performances' may determine which one is to be backup man next season behind Hodge since the team can protect only two goalies in the June draft. Breathing room for Esposito MONTREAL (CP) - Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins, riding a consecutive scoring streak of nine games, widened his lead in the individual scoring race to eight points over team-mate Bobby Orr last week, but Orr is leading the struggle for the $500 which goes to scoring leader in the second half of the National Hockey League scoring race. Esposito, who has 67 goals and 74 assists for 141 points in 72 games, has scored 14 goals in his nine-game streak, which is one game short of the modern record set by Andy Bathgate with New York Rangers in 1962-63 and equalled by Bobby Hull of Chicago two seasons ago. He will get his chance to equal the record when the Bruins play Black Hawks Wednesday night During the second half of the season, Orr has scored 21 goals and 48 assists for 69 points. The 22-year-old defenceman's overall total is 133 points on 37 goals and 96 assists. Git's point production in the second half of the season is three more than that of Esposito. John Bueyk of Bruins is third in individual scoring with 60 goals and 89 assists for 109 points. He is followed by teammate Ken Hodge who has 42 goals and 69 assists for 101 points. Hull rounds out the top five scorers with 94 points on 43 goals and 51 assists. In goaltending, the New York Rangers duo of Ed Giacomin and Gilles Villemure hold a comfortable lo-goal margin on the Chicago trio of Tony Esposito, Gilles Meloche and Gery Desiardins. Giacomin has allowed 90 goals and has recorded seven shut- outs, Villemure has been beaten 68 times and has four shutouts. Rangers have allowed four empty-net goals for a total of 162 goals against in 72 games-an average of 2.25 goals per game. Chicago has been scored on 172 times in 72 games for an average of 2.38 goals per game. Meanwhile, Black Hawks' defenceman Keith Magnuson es-talished himself last week as the league's all-time bad man. Magnuson has logged 283 minutes in penalties this season, eclipsing the old record of 273 set by Howie Young of Detroit Red Wings in 1962-63.

Face Czechoslovakia in next outing Russians have had very little trouble BERN, Switzerland (CP) -International hockey's Big Red Machine, Russia, was idle today, preparing for its ticklish match with Czechoslovakia Wednesday. So far, during the world hockey championships, the Soviet Union has split the opposition in little pieces, and the Swedes and Czeclis are the only entries in the six-country tournament given any chance of upsetting the Russians. Ever since the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, the strained feelings between the two countries have extended to the ice rink. The Czechs defeated the Russians twice in 1969, but the Russians still retained the title on better goal average. _., Last year in Stockholm, Russia defeated Czechoslovakia twice and won the title easily with nine wins and a single loss. Sweden, always a tough customer for Russia, beat the Russians the first time out in 1970, and then lost the return to finish second for the silver medal. Sweden is undefeated here in two starts, but has lost its top goalie, Leif Hohnqvist, who had his nose broken in practice. In their three games so far, the Soviet team has been adept at tearing holes in the defences of its opponents and scoring almost at mil. The Russians, world hockey champions since 1963, have scored a total of 29 goals in three games while allowing only five, Sweden is 10-7, The Czechs, who went into the tournament rated slightly behind the Russians and Swedes, dropped a surprise 5-1 decision to the United States in their opening game and then fell to Sweden 6-5. It wasn't until Monday that the Czechs appeared to be hitting their stride, downing West Germany 9-1. In Monday's other game, the Russians wrecked the United States 10-2. The Americans already are complaining of a flock of hurts and bruises. Their best goalie, Carl Wetzel of Detroit, has a pulled hamstring muscle. But American coach Murray Williamson concedes: "I can hardly see any team in this championship defeating the So- viets and dethroning them." In today's games the U.S. meets scrappy Finland, much improved1 over the years, and Sweden plays West Germany. The Russians lead the tournament with six points for their three wins, followed by Sweden with four points. U.S. and Czechoslovakia, each with two points. West Germany has yet to win a match. The tournament is a double round-robin event wliich winds up April 3 in Geneva. The organizers set up the draw with Sweden as the team to beat and scheduled the final game of the tournament between Russia and Sweden-as they did in 1970. LOVE MACHINES - Want to aet involved?
