Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THI LETHBRIDOI HERALD - Monday, March 29, 1971 Rustlers win second straight crown Sugar Kings bow out of final series By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sport* Writer RED DEER - The 1970-71 Alberta Junior Hockey League , season came to an end for the Lethbridge Sugar Kings Sunday afternoon in Red Deer be-fore some 2,500 fans. Sugar Kings dropped a 4-1 decision to Red Deer Rustlers giving the host club the best-of-seven final 4-1 in games. "It's hard to believe the season is over with," said coach John Chapman as the game ended the year for the Kings. Chapman, in his first year as coach, guided his club to a second place finish and then ousted Edmonton Maple Leafs in straight games in the semifinals to advance against the Rustlers who had downed Calgary Cougars 4-1 in their semifinal. Sunday's game saw the biggest difference in goals in the five games. Rustlers jumped into a 3-0 lead in games after winning 3-1 and 3-2 at home and 2-1 in Ta-ber. Sugar Kings earned their only win, 54 in Taber last Thursday. Player chalks up second win WINNING PLAYER - Gary Player cheers hit shot to a birdie on the second hole, on his way to his second consecutive victory Sunday in the $200,000 National Arlines Open. He won the Jacksonville Open last weekend. Pee Wees triumph Bantams Alberta champs Lethbridge A.C.T. Bantam Reps captured the Alberta bantam crown over the weekend after ousting a stubborn Red Deer club 7-6 at Adams Ice Centre. The Reps won the two-game, total-point series 13-10 having won 6-4 in Red Deer last weekend. Meanwhile, Lethbridge Midget Elks were thrashed 14-1 by Red Deer and lost the two-game, total-point Alberta midget final. Red Deer also won the first game convincingly, 8-3. In Saturday's bantam game Reg Osmond turned in a strong performance and scored three times. Baden Pilling added a ipair while solo markers went 'to Ron Moser and Joe Meli. Robert Prince and Bob Haldine accounted for two goals each for Red Deer. Brian McAusland and Brian Stephenson rounded out the scoring with singles. Coach Harold Osmond and manager John Fox were more than pleased with their club's performances the past two weeks. "We weren't given much of a chance to win the title," said -Fox, "but we did it." "We defeated a real good hockey club and a well dis- ciplined group of boys," added the manager. Lethbridge last won the provincial title in 1964-65. The Reps will now take part in a bantam tournament in Kamloops to finish off a most successful season that saw them win the southern bantam title as well as the midget league championship. The Lethbridge Marlands skated to a 7-5 victory over the Brooks Lions and captured the Dunlop trophy for the Southern Alberta Championship over the weekend. The Marlands took the best of three play-off series in two straight games. In the contest Saturday the two clubs were tied 1-1 after the first period of play but the Marlands came alive in the second and carried a 4-2 edge into the third. Tom Block and Lome Osmond paced the Marlands attack with two goals each while Scott Yar-vie, Keith Miyashiro and David Snopek aided with singletons. Nolan Gausman topped the Lions scorers with two goals while Terry Troidle, Scott Evans and Keith Schichter chipped in with a goal each. In Pee Wee playoff action the Bisons and Penguins battled to a 3-3 draw. Chuck Moore scored twice for the Bisons with a singleton going to Ross Matheson. Gary K ami torn o banged home two goals for the Penguins while Garry Takahashi added one* In Bantam "B" action both the Rangers and the Cougars moved up the play-off ladder as they captured their two-game total-goal semi-final series over the weekend. The Rangers managed a 1-1 draw against the Nuggets and took the series 4-2 in total goals. Greg Babino tallied for the Rangers while Kim Ervin replied for the Nuggets. Jeff Takeyasu and Monty Mitchell both picked up a hat-trick and led the Vikings to a 9-1 romping over the Falcons in Pee Wee action. Duane Ptycia added two markers while Gary Calhoun tallied once for the Vikings who held period scores of 4-1 and 5-1. John Lapoint was the lone scorer for the Falcons. After a hard-fought 5-3 comeback win over the Eagles last week the Cougars decided not to take any chances and blasted in six unanswered goals in the first two periods in skating to a 7-1 victory. MIAMI (AP) - Gary Player has earned $75,643 in five golfing weekends in the United States and the South African is thinking of taking a fulltime shot at the $7 million Professional Golfers' Association tour. Player shot a 68 Sunday for a 14-under-par total of 274 to capture the $200,000 National Airlines Open. It meant another $40,000 for him, winner of the $25,000 top prize the previous week in the Greater Jacksonville Open. "It's the first time I've won back - to - back tournaments in America," said Player. Player strung out rounds of 69-67-70-68 on the 6,970-yard Country Club of Miami course to whip Lee Trevino by two shots. Trevino, who trailed Player by a stroke going into Sunday's final 18 holes, shot a .69 for 276. McGEE THIRD In third place was Jerry McGee who shot a 31 on the front nine and ended up with a 66 for 277. Charles Goody and Australian Bruce Crampton were another stroke back at 278. Arnold Palmer shot a 69 for a 279 total while George Knudson of Toronto, the only Canadian to make the cut, finished in a five-way tie for 17th place with 282. He won $2,700. "I could break Billy Casper's one-year money record," Player said. "In 15 U.S. tournaments, I usually top $100,000. Think if I played 25 or 30." build that pool! The BankofMOTheal has loans. Andretti wins races ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) -Mario Andretti drove a Ferrari to victory in both heats of the Q u e s t o r Grand Prix before 68,825 spectators Sunday at On tario Motor Speedway as United States machinery failed miserably in this first match-up between domestic and European cars and drivers. Andretti, driving a 12-cylin-der, Formula 1 car, beat Scotland's Jackie Stewart by five car lengths in the first 100-mile heat and came home a more comfortable 13 seconds in front the wily Scot in the second. His over-all victory carried a winner's purse of $25,000 plus lap and accessory money. The total purse was $288,900. Stewart's runner-up finish in a Tyrrell-Ford gave him second over-all and $15,000. He also pocketed a bundle of lap money, Third over-all went to New Zealand's Denis Hulme, the 1967 world driving champ, and was worth $12,500. Andretti, passing Stewart on the front straight with two laps to go en route to his firstrheat win, posted an average speed of 109.4 miles an hour. His speed was a bit faster in the second- 109.908. SECOND TIME LONDON (AP) - Eva Twed berg, 27-y e a r -o 1 d Swedish player, has won the all-England women singles badminton championship for the second time in four years. She defeated Nini Berglund of Denmark 11-3, 6-u and 11-2 Saturday to take the title. Casper pocketed $205,000 two years ago and Player, if he maintained his 1971 average of $15,128 through a full schedule of 30 events, would win $453,840. Monroe sparks Bullets By THE ASSOCIATED FREES Earl Monroe of Baltimore Bullets was knocked cold by an errant elbow in the second quarter but came back after intermission to score 23 of his 29 points as the Bullets pasted Philadelphia '76ers 111-109 in the National Basketball Association playoffs Sunday. The win gave the Bullets a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Division semi-finals. Monroe was knocked unconscious when he received a sharp blow on his already-injured rib cage. In other NBA playoff games Sunday, New York Knicks trimmed Atlanta Hawks 110-95 to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven semi-finals and Chicago Bulls battered Los Angeles Lakers 106-98 and cut the Lakers' lead to 2-1 in their best-of-seven Western Division semi-finals. Saturday, Atlanta bounced New York 113-104. After Philadelphia rallied Sunday behind Hal Greer to come back from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit and pulled within 99-97, Monroe scored six straight points and Gus Johnson added a field goal to make it 107-97 for Baltimore. Greer led Philadelphia with 28 points. Walt Frazier scored 29 points, igniting a second-half comeback, and also made some key steals to help New York beat Atlanta. Gail Goodrich led the Laker attack with 39 points while Bobby Love scored 27 for Chicago. Jones leads first round EDMONTON (CP) - Malcolm Jones of Lethbridge, Alta., three-time Canadian bareback riding champion, scored 80 points on a horse called Swanee to take the early first-round lead Sunday in his event at the Canadian Western Rodeo. It was the first time Jones had been on a horse since last October. He said he skipped the rich winter rodeos in the United States because seven months of rodeos a year in Canada is enough for him. Jones' closest rival Is Chris LeDoux of Kaycee, Wyo., who had 75. Another Kaycee cowboy, John Holman, led the saddle bronc riding with 73 points. There are 199 entries, competing for $30,000 in prizes, at the rodeo which continues until next Sunday. "They have a good hockey* club," added Chapman, "they beat us." It was a big day for Brian Ogilvie Sunday. The highflying centre iceman accounted for all four Red Deer goals in an outstanding individual effort. Archie McLennan, playing with a badly bruised left leg, notched the solo Sugar King marker which gave the Kings a 1-0 first period lead. Ogilvie scored the first of his four goals in the second period and the two clubs stayed deadlocked until the 4:10 mark of the final period. It wasn't the same Sugar King club that came out in the third period that had been out in the first two periods. Ogilvie scored what proved to be the winner at 4:10 and then beat Lethbridge goalie John Davidson twice more In the rough third period. Referee Bill Bucyk, who didn't have an outstanding ries, called 28 penalties in the game including two majors and a misconduct. Sugar Kings got the nod on 12. "We lost the game when we didn't score on those back to back breakaways early in the second period," continued the coach." Garry Paskuski and Len Chalmers both had clear breaks while the Kings were playing a man short but failed in their bids to beat Dale Hen-wood in the Rustlers' net, "Henwood made a good save on Paskuski," said Chapman, "and Chalmers had to hurry his shot as Ken McLasH came back strong to check him." "That would have meant a big "fference," continued the coach. "You can imagine the lift it would have given us to score with the Rustlers having a man advantage. Chapman also took into consideration the four goal posts the Kings hit during the course of the afternoon. Experience was a key factor in the finals. The Rustlers, defending league champions, have been the final route before. Only a handful of the Kings had and the lack of need ed experience played a big part in the outcome. Was Chapman happy with the season over all? "I would have to say I am happy about the way things went," he answered, "however, I still would1 have liked to win it all." The summer begins a little bit earlier than most of the Sugar Kings expected it would but they are a young club and like their coach said, "They'll hear from us next year and you can quote me." Rustlers will now meet Penticton Broncos in the Alberta - British Columbia final with the winner advancing against Saskatchewan on the trail to the Memorial Cup. Last year the Rustlers lost to Weyburn Red Wings after winning the Alberta - B.C crown. ICE CHIPS - Garry Pasku ski was happy, in hii own way when the series ended . . meant he wouldn't have to have any more needles in his ankle . . . Paskuski, Fra-ser Robertson, Archie McLen nan and Joe Mutch played their last game in the league Sunday ... All four are too old for next year . . . Randy Andreachuk will be glad to see the end of his private duel with Dale Henwood . . . The Rustlers netminder was hard on Andreachuk . . . Especially on breakaways and close in shots . . . Robertson, Mutch and John Davidson have joined the Calgary Centennials for the remainder of the season You could have heard a pan drop in the Sugar King dress ing room Sunday after the game . . . Sugar King officials figure there were at least 300 Lethbridge fans at the game Sunday . . . There were even some red pom-poms . . . The topper was a red carpet spread out on the ice by two Leth bridge fans for the Kings to walk on ... To say it drew the ire of the Red Deer fans would be an understatement.
