Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 26, 1973 _ THE LETHBRIDGI HERALD 7 Excellent Hglit card draivs a mere 200 McDonald Clan tough, win two of three fights By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff writer Boxers from the Calgary Renfro Boys' dub didn't spare the rod Saturday night as they gpoiietl the efforts of opposing battlers on eight of nine occa- rions. A disappointing crowd of 200 showed their appreciation often during the 14-bout card featuring clubs from Leth- bridge, Lundbreck, Brocket and Calgary. Due to circumstances beyond the control of the local club the scheduled main event between Gary Beatty of Calgary and Carmen -Rinke of Lcthbridge had to be cancelled. Beatty was unable to make the trip and in place of the scheduled bout Rinke and Charlie Prongua, both of the local club, put on a three round exhibition.' While neither boy was going all out, it proved to be ehfer- taining, showing both boys to good advantage. The McDonald clan of Cal- gary had a brae night as two of the three tartan-trunked lads won their bouts and the third lost by a narrow verdict. William McDonald had the easiest time of the three as the referee stopped his 50-pound bout with Lyle Smith of Lund- brecfc early in the- first round. Smith was never in the fight and tiie referee wisely stepped in before any damage was done. Sixty pound Jim McDonald gained a split decision over Lundbreck's Frank Simpson in a heated, toe-to-toe battle. Colorful Brian Stump, win- ner of the trophy for tha best footwork on the card, put a stop to the winning ways y Wednesday.

The best-of-three series Ii now tied at one game each ant the final match is set for Wed nesday at p.m. at the Civic Tee Centre. In Sunday's tilt, the Hostlers racked up a 2-fl first period lead and extended it to 5-1 after thi second. Robin Knibbs paced the Hos tiers' attack with three goal whilo Norm Hopkins with twi and Jerry Roth with a single scored the others. Cam MaeLennen tallied pair of goals for the ColL while singles were made by Ireg Kveder, Bob Quinnell and iliff Miyashiro.

Carey Goshimon and Do Coutts replied for the Voya geurs, who trailed 4-2 after tw periods. The final game of tlio two game total-goal zone five cham pionship will be staged Apr 2. jp with two victories over the yening. The Brocket club won free bouts and Lundbreck ailed to win a fight. Calgary, course, proved the best with Ight victories. Perry Odnsy, the lough little, 0 pounder from the Leth- ridge club, earned a unani- [ous verdict over Alvin Wicks Lundbreck. In beating 'icks, Perry earned the tro- hy presented to the fighter ossessing the best left hand. The other victory chalked up y the local club came when Sincennes bested rocket's Mark Big Smoke in ne of the most rousing fighis the evening. Sincennes and Big Smoke irew both style and caution o the wind as they bombarded ach other with punches from 11 angles. Charlie Goldie of Calgary ained the nod over Leth- ridge's Fred- Prudden in a loody 189-pound bout. Goldie, who at one point late n the fight asked the referee o stop the contest for 'rudden might suffer se- rious injury, couldn't slow town his opponent. Prudden ust kept boring In, despite the nmishment he was taking in he latter stages. Lethbridge's Allan Davies suffered a split decision loss at he hands of Calgary's Darwin artley in a 55-pound match. Randy Ruiiii, who was judged 'to have the best hand over the evening, .gave Calgary another victory as he beat Mike Obrigwitcii of jethbridge in an 80 pound .ussel. Eddie Blanche of Calgary de- cisioned an ever-pressing Den- nis Wicks of Lundbreck. The 100-pound Lunbreck boxer im- pressed everyone with his ef- fort and he was awarded a tro phy for trying the hardest. Calgary's 90 pound Peter Krich outpointed Stan Simpson of Lundbreck and Glen Provost of Brocket was given the nod over Grey Greenway of the host club when his corner threw in the towel early in the first round. Carmen Rinke was named Lethbridge's best all round boxer and Charlie Prongua was selected as the most im- proved fighter in the club. Robert Hansen of Warner, fighting his first fight for the Lethbridge club, lost a split de- cision, to Floyd Provost of Brocket in a 165-pound bout. Tony Boguski, trainer with the Lethbridge club, was very enthusiastic about the pros- pects of the local ciub. He men- tioned Rinke as a great pros- pect for the Winter Games in 1975 and felt Ro'oert Hansen had the tools to develop into a good fighter. "Charlie Prongua is boxing better and his left hand and footwork have Tony said. "For a one-year fighter he moves extremely well."

Rangers ivill need miracle to end second Orr came to Walton's rescue By TIIE CANADIAN PRESS Buffalo Sabres are probably wondering today what took ia so long to unleash their secret weapon on Boston Bruins. Little Ron Busniuk sparked die food for thought when lie landled Boston's Mike Walton with such authority that it drew the Brain winger's business partner, Bobby Orr, into the battle. When the altercation was cleared up, Busniuk and Walton each drew five minutes for fighting and young Bruins' defensive superstar on whoso legs is riding defence of their Stanley Cup champion- the gate. But by that time, late in the second period, the Beantowners already owned a 6-0 lead, sparked by two goals from Orr and Phil Esposito's game-open- ing score at that made the Boston centre the season's first 50-goal scorer in the Rational Hockey League. Boston wound up with a 6-1 victory and a virtual stran- glehold on second place m the East Division after New York Rangers ran up against superb goaltending by Cesare Maniago who carried Minnesota North Stars to a 2-1 victory. PL ANTE BLANKS RANGERS The Bruins padded their lead over the Rangers to four points after breaking the deadlock Sat- urday by blanking the New Yorkers 3-0 at Boston behind veteran Jacques Plante's 29 saves. It marked the 44-year-old Planle's second shutout and fifth victory in six games with the Bruins since being acquired in a late-season trade from To- ronto Maple Leafs. Detroit failed to take advan- tage of the Buffalo loss by drop- ping an 8-5 score to California Golden Seals, leaving the Red Wings one point behind Buffalo, fourth in the East. In other Sunday games, Philadelphia Flyers held a share of second in the West with Minnesota by beating St. Louis Blues 4-2, Chicago Black Hawks nipped Montreal Cana- diens 8-5 in a meaningless game between division winners, Van- couver Canucks toppled Toronto Maple Leafs 7-4 with Don Tan- nahill scoring three goals, and Pittsburgh Penguins defeated Atlanta Flames 4-2. The surprising Flames were finally eliminated from the West playoff picture Saturday when they were drubbed 7-0 at home by Chicago. Other scores were: Montreal 11 St. Louis 4; Boston 3 Rangers 0; New York Islanders 3 Philadelphia 2; Los Angeles Kings 5 Detroit 3; Buf- falo 4 Pittsburgh 4. Detroit and Buffalo continue their struggle for a post-season berth Tuesday night away from Red Wings at To- ronto and Buffalo in New York Canucks sideline Falcons DRUMHBLLER (CP) Cal- gary Canucks took a 5-2 Alber- ta Junior Hockey League vic- tory over Drumheller Falcons Sunday to win their best-of- seven semi-final series 4-1 with one game tied. Canucks now will meet Red Deer Rustlers in the final with the first game of the best-of- seven series to be played in Cal- gary Tuesday. Roger Lamoreaux, Dean Ma- gee, Joe Deiure, Brock Kaluz- nick and Brian Miller were the marksmen for Calgary while Dennis Wallis and Brian Max- well replied for the Falcons. The score was tied 1-1 after the first period and Calgary went ahead 3-1 after the second. The Canucks took nine of 14 minor penalties and received the game's only misconduct. The Falcons outshot Calgary 33-31. Liverpool, Arsenal in deadlock Leeds drop five off pace LONDON (Renter) Liver- pool and Arsenal opened up a five-point gap atop the English Soccer League first division table Saturday as third-placed Leeds United dropped a vital home point. Liverpool remained two points clear of Arsenal with a 3-f win at home over Norwich, Chris Lawler, Emlyn Hughes and Brian Hall scored for Liv- erpool in the second half while Ian Metier netted a consolation goal for Norwich. Arsenal, who reached the Eng- lish F. A. Cup semi-finals by healing Chelsea in a midweek replay, won 2-1 away to Man- chester City. City's Mick Doyle missed a penalty before either side had scored. Charlie George, who with Ar- senal team-mate Pat Rice was booked la UM firtf half tor guing, put Arsenal ahead be- fore Tommy Booth equalized for City. Ray Kennedy hit Ar- senal's winner five minutes from the end of a match in which England winger Mike Summerbee was booked after being appointed captain for his 500th league game for Man- chester City, Leeds could only draw Ml at home to Wolverhamplon Wan- derers whom they meet in next month's English P. A. Cup semi-finals. LEEDS FADING Leeds failure to overcome Wolves, left the championship race a two-way contest though Leeds still have three games in hand over Liverpool and Arse- nal. Manchester United eased their relegation worries with a crucial point from a l-l draw away to Tottenham Hotspur, the UEFA Cup-holders who face Liverpool in trie semi-finals. United, jeered off at the end by a crowd unhappy with their heavy tackling, went ahead with an early goal from George Graham. Martin Chiv- ers scored for Spurs six min- utes from the end. Like Norwich, Stoke City and Crystal Palace were bealen to leave all tliree clubs only two points clear of bottom learn West Bromwich Albion, who picked up a point from a 1-1 draw at home to Southampton. STRING INTACT Palace, beaten 3 1 at home by West Ham United, have now failed in 30 attempts to defeat another London club in a league match since being pro- moted to the First Division four years ago. Second-division pacesetters, Burnley and Queens Park Rangers, moved nearer almost- certain promotion with impres- sive victories. Burnley recovered from an early setback to beat Millwatl 2-1 while Rangers crushed third-placed Blackpool 4-0. In the Scottish First Division, Glasgow Rangers stretched their unbeaten run to 19 games when they beat Hibernian 1-0 on a goal by Tommy Mclean. Rangers remained two points ahead of Celtic at the top and were all placed to thwart their Glasgow rivals' hopes of taking the league title tor the eighth successive season. Celtic, who have one game in hand over the league lead- ers beat Hearts 2-0 on goals by Dixie Deans and Bobby Len- nox. with the Islanders. Vancouver visits Minnesota in the only other game. For the third straight year, Bsposito, a gangly 215-pounder from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., has scored 50 or more goals. He now has a career total of most of them since being traded to the Bruins by Chicago in May, 1967. His 61st goal later in the game and an assist gave him 122 points for the season, far short of his record-breaking 197MI campaign when he scored 76 goals and earned 152 league marks. Orr, who missed the first 14 games of the season to recuper- ate from a knee operation and has been reported laboring un- der the effects of the same in- jury for most of the season, scored his 25th and 26th of the year. Ottawa Nationals, currently the hottest team in professional hockey, continued to surprise their World Hockey Association opposition Sunday. The Nats, brandishing a fore- checking game that has been noticeably lacking through most of the season, posted then- sev- enth straight win at home and their 10th in II league 6-1 over Minnesota Fighting Saints. The win moved Nats Into a third-place tie with Philadelphia Blazers in the WHA's Eastern Division with 70 points a seemingly impossible feat a month ago when the Ottawa team was plugging along in the division cellar. Elsewhere Sunday the scores were: Alberta Oilers 5, Quebec Les Nordiques 4; Winnipeg Jets 8, New York Raiders 4; Cleve- land Crusaders 4, Houston Aeros 2; Los Angeles Sharks 1, Chicago Cougars 1. In Saturday's games, Quehee edged Alberta 5-4 and Min- nesota nipped Cleveland 2-1. Cleveland plays its third game in as many nights tonight when it is 'host to New England Whalers. Gavin Kirk paced the Nats with two goals as Ottawa fans watched. Brian Gibbons, Jack Gibson, Rick Sentes and Rick Cunningham also con- nected for the Ottawa club. Keith Christiansen tallied flw lone Minnesota goal after they fell behind 6-0.
