Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THI IETHBRID0E HIRAID - Thursday, March 2S, 1971- Fall three games down in Alberta final Sugar Kings directly behind the eight-ball By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer TABER - John Chapman of the Lethbridge Sugar Kings was talking to himself Wednesday night after his club dropped a 2-1 decision to the Red Deer Rustlers before more than 2,000 fans in Taber. Chapman had good reason to be upset as the loss dropped his Kings three games behind in the best-of-seven Alberta Junior Hockey League final series. The fourth, and what could be the final game, is set for tonight at the Taber Civic Civic Centre at 8:30. The first - year Lethbridge coach simply looked at the scoreboard at the end of the game and shook his head as if to say, why? As has been the case in all three games thus far the two clubs were tied 1-1 after the first period with the Rustlers scoring the only goal of the second period. The third period was scoreless. "I don't know what we have to do," said Chapman. He was referring) of course, to the fact that the Kings while out-shooting the Rustlers 35-29 could only beat Dale Henwood once. Randy Andreachuk fired the lone Lethbridge goal as he turned in his second consecutive outstanding performance. The lanky right winger picked up a loose puck directly in front of Henwood and beat ham cleanly to give the Kings a 1-0 lead. John Laskoski replied for Red Deer in the first period and then Dave Andrewciw was given credit for the winner after the puck went in off Leth- ANDY CAPP Golf tournament set for holiday Lethbridge will have a new golf tournament it was announced today.

The game was marred by a disturbance in the stands between Lethbridge and Brooks fans. City police were called to the Civic Centre and charges were laid against two fans. SOUTHERN ALBERTA BOXING ELIMINATIONS SATURDAY, MARCH 27th Starting 1:00 p.m. - Finals at 8:00 p.m. TABER CIVIC CENTRE AUDITORIUM OVER 80 BOXERS IN ATTENDANCE-ALL CLASSES Admission-Rush $1.00 Ringside $1.50 John Ferguson, the steel - nosed Montreal Canaa-diens' left wing, scored a goal at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum recently it marked the first time Fergie had lit the red light in his hometown in 16 years. The fact that Ferguson graduated from hockey in "balmy" Vancouver to the NHL is remarkable in itself and underlines the perserverance and grim determination that has made Fergie the muscle, if not heart, of the Canadiens. It's no secret that Vancouver lacks the natural ice of such hockey centres as Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Lethbridge. Which meant it was more difficult for John to learn to skate. That didn't stop him. "I got myself a job as a 'rink rat* at the old Forum," the 32-year-old Ferguson recalled. "Luckily, it had two sheets of ice; one for the figure skaters and one for regular skating. I'd clean one sheet and then do the other. They paid me 25 cents for every patch of ice cleaned." Fergie boasts that he was involved in one of the few "rink rat" strikes m the history of Canadian sport. Naturally, it was inspired by a demand for more money. "When we didn't get it," says Ferguson, "we retaliated by cutting the rink's water hose, which meant they couldn't get a fresh sheet of ice between periods, of the hockey game. "The owners found out who did it and banned us from The Forum for a whole month, hoping one of us would snitch on the others. Nobody did, and in the end our move paid off -we wound up getting a raise to 35 cents!" In time, Fergie worked his way up to the job of stdekboy for the Vancouver Canucks, then a member of the Western League. His tough - guy philosophy was partially molded one night when Larry Zeidel, then with Edmonton, massaged Phil Maloney of Vancouver in front of the Canucks' bench. When Zeidel invited! any of the other Canucks to do battle with him nobody accepted. Young Ferguson was appalled by the scene and vowed that he never would let an enemy beat up one of his teammates. Thus, it was no coincidence that Zeidel and Ferguson clashed when they were foes in the American League. ? ? ? Ferguson's competitive edge also was honed to sharpness by Bill "Legs" Fraser, a former Ottawa Senators goaltender who became coach of the Melville, Saskatchewan Junior team. "I got an invitation to leave Vancouver and play Junior hockey in Melville," said Ferguson, "so I got on a train at Vancouver one day and got to Melville at three the next morning. Imagine my amazement when the (rain pulled into Melville and mis tall, lanky man, Fraser, met me at the platform. "The first thing he did after introducing himself to me was to frisk me from head to toe. I guess Vancouver kids had a reputation for being something less than good boys." ? ? ? Unlike the Bobby Orr-type Junior stars who make the jump directly to the NHL these days, Fergie labored long and hard in the minors. He claims it all was worthwhile and now he can look back to those "old days" with amusement, especially the rollicking days of Junior hockey on the prairie. "One night we were leaving Estevan, Saskatchewan, when our car got stuck in the snowbank off the side of the road," he remembered. "It must have been 30 below zero at the time and it looked like we were never going to get the car back in shape. "Finally, one of the other players and myself started walking along the road, looking for help. We came upon an old farmhouse which had some lights on. I went up to the door, knocked, but nobody answered. "Apparently the people were afraid to open the door because they didn't know who was out there and didn't want to take any chances. Somehow or other we managed to convey our problem to them and they opened the door." The farmer went to the barn, harnessed a huge horse and walked two miles down the road with horse, Fergie and teammate. He then chained the horse to the car bumper and, after a few pulls, induced the horse to drag the car out of the snow. ? ? ? Fergie says he has an endless collection of stories of his minor league experiences. He laughed when he recalled the night of a New Year's Eve game in Prince Albert long, long ago. "We had planned to celebrate with a few beers after the game, Ferguson said, "but we made the mistake of leaving the case of beer in the car trunk. When we opened the trunk after the game the beer was frozen solid!" MALE HELP WANTED Man required to operate a modern Radio Controlled Tow Truck To cover Lethbridge and district.

Bustlers picked up 10 of 15 penalties called by referee Bill Bucyk, who was even less up to par than he was in Red Deer where the Rustlers won 3-1 and 3-2. The Kings are squarely behind the eight-ball now and have everything to gain and nothing to lose, so to speak. "We sure couldn't afford to lose that one," said manager Syd Hall after the game. Should the Kings win tonight they would then travel to Red Deer for a Sunday afternoon encounter. The sixth game would be in Taber next Wednesday and the seventh and final in Red Deer next Friday. The winner of the Alberta title advances against British Columbia. Sugar Kings had plenty of chances to tie the game, especially early in the third per-iod. The only major penalty of the game went to Bid Deer as Dwayne Bolkoway attempted to sever Fraser Robertson's head. Bucyk assessed the hot headed Rustler a match penalty. A five - minute penalty goes along with the infraction and gave the Kings the man advantage for the last two into-utes of the second period and three of the third. CAME CLOSE The locals came close on numerous occasions as more than once the puck got behind Henwood but not quite far enough. Andreachuk and George Mc-Crea had possibly the best scoring chances. Shortly after scoring the Kings' lone goal Andreachuk walked around the Red Deer defence and had Henwood beaten to the top corner but the sharp Red Deer net-minder somehow managed to get his toe on the puck. "What do I have to do to beat that guy?" Andreachuk wondered out loud. Henwood stopped the first-year player on a breakaway Sunday in Red Deer and then Andreachuk hit the post on another rush. McCrea deflected a shot by Lannie McDonald from the blueline and rattled it off the post. "It's all uphill now for us," added Hall, "needless to say, we can't lose another one."
