Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Swamp Sweden 8-0 Russians tops in first round GENEVA (AP) - The final round-robin of the 1971 world hockey championship moves to this United Nations centre today with the Soviet Union two points In the clear atop the standing and the overwhelming favorite to win its ninth straight title. The last game Friday of the first round-robin In Bern, the Swiss federal capital, had been expected to be a key match between the unbeaten but once-tied Russians and Swedes. It turned out to be a rout as the Soviet Union ruthlessly swept its main rival off the ice 8-0. The Russians now have four wins and a tie for nine points. The Czechs held the world champions to a 8-3 tie Wadenes-day. But after surprisingly dropping its first two matches against the United States and Sweden, Czechoslovakia ap- Sabres almost assured of third place finish By THE CANADIAN PRESS Buffalo Sabres will not make the playoffs in their first season in the National Hockey League but they are bound to take some satisfaction from their showing as an expansion team. The Sabres scored two goals in the third period Friday night to defeat Vancouver Canucks 3-1 In one of the two NHL games and the win gave them a firm bold on fifth place In the seven-team East Division. In the other game, Garry Unger and Jim Roberts each scored two goals to lead St. Louis Blues to an 8-5 victory over California Golden Seals. The Sabres, who with the Canucks entered the league this season as a new team in the East Division, lost their first two games to the Canucks, but they rebounded to win the other four and take their six-game series with the Canucks 4-2. And Punch Imlach, coach and general manager of the Sabres, fa bound to take some satisfaction from the fact that Gil Per-result, his prized rookie who was drafted first in the NHL's amateur draft last year, is considered a favorite for the Rook-k-of-Year award.

Imlach chose Perrmult over Dale Tallon, who was drafted second by the Canucks. Tallon, a prolific scorer as centre in his last season as a Junior with Toronto Malboros of the Ontario Hockey Association, has also had an outstanding season with the Canucks. But the Canucks switched him to defence and he has played most of the season in that position, one of the toughest in the league. Perreault scored his 36th goal Friday night in Buffalo's victory Player, Trevino leading MIAMI (AP) - Lee Trevino surveyed the group tied for first place in the National Airlines open golf tournament and singled out Gary Player as the man to beat for the $40,000 first prize. "If the wind keeps blowing, that little man in black is the one you've got to watch," Trevino said Friday after joining the group of six tied for first place going into today's third round in the $200,000 event. Trevino, the defending champion, cut through the blustery winds with a three-under-par 69 for 136; eight under par on the 6,970-yard Country Club of Miami course. He was tied with Player, the South African who woo last week's Greater Jacksonville Open, Australian Bruce Cramp-ton, Charles Coody, Jerry Heard and rookie Hubert Green. One stroke back of the leading six at 137 was Australian Bruce Devlin, who had a 69. Bobby Cole, a 22-year-old South African who matched Green's 65, and Frank Beard, with a 70, followed at 138. Arnold Palmer moved into position with a 69 for 139, just three strokes off the pace. The only Canadian to survive the cut of 145 was George Knud-son of Toronto who shot a 70 for 140. Wilf Homenuik of Winnipeg had a 73 for 147, Wayne Vollmer of Vancouver shot 80 for 149 and Ken Fulton of Montreal had a 75 for 151.

Drouin, who scored bis 65th and 66th points Thursday night in Minnesota's 2-2 tie with Philadelphia Flyers, broke the record of most points by a rookie-65-set in the 1968-69 season by Danny Grant, also of the North Stars. Phil Goyette and Gerry Meehan also scored for the Sabres Friday night while Mike Corri-gan, with his 20th goal of the season, scored for Vancouver.

Only the unlikely combination of Sweden's winning all Its remaining five games and the Russians losing at least twice would give the Swedes the title. The battle for the silver and bronte medals is between Sweden, Czechoslovakia and Finland-tarring a sensational collapse of the Russians. Sweden is in second place with seven points, followed by the Czechs and Finns, with five points each, though the Czechs are ahead on total goals. The U.S. and West Germany share last place with two points, but the West Germans have a better spread in goals scored and goals allowed. Apart from the consistent Russians, the form book was repeatedly turned upside down in Bern. The U.S. crushed Czechoslovakia 5-1 in the first game, then lost 7-2 to the West Germans who were blasted 9-1 by the Czechs. Sweden edged Czechoslovakia 6-5, but the Czechs held the Russians to a tie and the Swedes were completely outclassed by the same Soviet squad. Finland held Sweden to a tie, but was beaten by Czechoslovakia 5-0 Friday, although the Czechs had lost to the Swedes. So the main rivals to the Russians have done the champions a big favor by eliminating each other. THEN U.S. SLUMPED West Germany appeared doomed to relegation to Group B play until the dramatic slump of the U.S. squad. The Americans hit their lowest spot in their final match in Bern, when they were clobbered 7-2 by the West Germans Thursday. Now they will have to fulfil manager Hal Trumble's promise: "We'll be back," to stay in the big league. Opening final round-robin games in Geneva's Les Vemets Stadium today are Czechoslovakia vs. the U.S. and Russia vs. West Germany. The last match of the double round-robin-Sweden against Russia-will be played next Saturday. In Friday's games, Anatoli Firsov scored four of the Russians' eight goals, Boris Mikai-lov scored twice and Vladimir Petrov and Vyacheslav Starshi-nov bad one each. Czech marksmen were Richard Farda, Eduard Novak, Vaclav Nedomansky, Jiri Kochta and Jiri Hdlik. - Saturday, March 27, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - H APARICIO BENCHED AND OUT - Boston Red Sox Luis Aparicio reacts to the hard contact with Cincinnati Reds catcher Johnny Bench for the out in yesterday's game.

Giants give Padres the Willies TICKET SWAP PALM BEACH, Fla (AP) -National Football League owners established a ticket clearing house for fans whose businesses take them to new locales as they ended their annual meetings Friday. The clearing house will operate out of the NFL office in New York with fans transferred from one city to another able to obtain information about fans in other cities who also may be moving and, therefore, willing to swap their season's tickets. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Willie Mays and Willie Mc-Covey tagged Tom Phoebus for home runs Friday, pacing San Francisco Giants to a 4-2 win over San Diego Padres. Elsewhere in exhibition baseball Friday, New York Mets downed Minnesota Twins 5-3, Chicago White Sox blanked St. Louis Cardinals 5-0, Cincinnati Reds downed Boston Red Sox 10-5, Washington Senators nipped Kansas City Royals 6-5, Houston Astros defeated Montreal Expos 8-4, Chicago Cubs walloped Milwaukee Brewers 12-3, California Angels took Oakland Athletics 4-2, Cleveland Indians edged Tokyo Orions 7-6, Detroit Tigers topped Philadelphia Phillies 10-9 and New York Yankees shacked Baltimore Orioles 3-2. Given the early cushion provided by Mays and McCovey, pitchers Steve Stone and Ron Bryant combined for a two-hitter against San Diego. Stone worked six innings and surrendered both Padre hits, one a two-run homer by Dave Campbell. Cleon Jones, missing from the Mets' lineup for a week because of a sprained back, returned with a bang, collecting three hits in New York's victory over Minnesota. Rick Reichardt ripped two singles and a homer in leading the White Sox past St. Louis. Lee Richard and Jay Johnstone drove in two runs apiece for Chicago. Johnny Bench rifled a pair of two-run homers, keying Cincinnati's victory over Boston. The Red Sox got a scare when Carl Yastrzemski suffered a pulled hamstring muscle. But Yaz is expected back in a day or two. Mike Epstein smacked a sin- gle, double and homer and drew three walks as Washington defeated Kansas City. The Senators rallied for the winning runs on consecutive singles by Ed Stroud, Paul Casanova and Tom Ragland in the 11th inning after Kansas City had gone ahead in Double Cream wins handicap DONCASTER, England (AP) - Double Cream today won the Lincoln Handicap on which the Irish sweepstakes is based.

There was a dramatic start Protects amateur code in Olympic games IOC members back new ruling LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - A stringent new draft rule designed to tighten protection of the amateur code in Olympic Games was made public Friday by the International Olympic Committee.

The issue was dramatized by IOC President Avery Brun-dage's demand that 10 top Alpine skiers, two of them Canadians, should be disqualified from the Sapporo Winter Games next year for taking part in a commercial camp at Mammoth Mountain, Calif. The Canadians are Rod Hebron of Vancouver, who has retired, and Peter Duncan of Mont Tremblant, Que., who failed to make the Canadian national team this winter. A prime change proposed by the executive board envisages that to be eligible a competitor "must comply with his federations directives and those issued by the International Olympic Committee.'' The code now in force requires athletes only to comply with their internatonal federation rules which sometimes are less rigid. RULE EXPLAINED The International Ski Olympic Committee directives proposed to be part of the future eligibility rule were listed as follows: -"He (the competitor) must not have directly or indirectly allowed his name, his photograph or his sports performance to be used individually for advertising purposes. -"He may not write or sign any publication or allow any be signed on his behalf, nor may he appear on radio or television during the Olympic Games in which he is participating without the permission of his chef de mission, -"Any advertising resulting from any equipment contracts by national federations shall be strictly controlled by the international federations, and copies of such contracts shall be lodged with a committee approved by the In temational Olympic Commit tee." An IOC secretariat spokes man here said that numerous national committees have al ready sent in their votes. LACKED MAJORITY In a poll earlier this year, Brundage was reported to have failed to receive a majority backing from IOC members in his condemnation of the 10 Alpine skiers. The 83-year-old president concentrated his criticism on the International Ski Federation - which he claims "has lost con trol of its sport which now is completely commercialized." He has stated that if the IOC is satisfied that the Mammoth Mountain camp last summer was purely a commercial enterprise, the Alpine skiers who took part in it would be barred from Saporro. Federation president Marc Hodler says the 10 were merely giving paid elementary skiing lessons. The proposed new rule makes seemingly inconclusive reference to this in say: -"He (a competitor) must not be, or have been a professional, semi-professional or so-called non-amateur in any sport. He must not have coached, taught or trained sports competitors for personal gain. Physical education teachers who instruct beginners are eligible," _ to the one-mile race. Tudor Dance fell as he came out of the starting stalls and Jockey Joe Mercer was thrown to the side of the track. Double Cream, owned by Briton Ry Dennis and trained by Bill Elsey, was ridden by Eddie Hide. He was sired by Klairon out of Top of the Milk. Sweepstakes ticket holders who drew other horses in the race all get prizes of $1,178.
