Cranbrook Royals have never competed in Allan Cup final play before but they are going into their initial national championship bid with one big factor to soothe any first-time a home-ice advantage. This southeastern British Columbia city will host all action in a best-of-seven series starting Saturday between the Royals and Flyers for the Canadian senior amateur hockey crown. Cranbrook made it to the na- tional final by defeating St. Boniface Mohawks in a semi- final after sidelining Spokane Jets and Trail Smoke Eaters in Western International Hockey League playoffs. This was the ninth year of senior hockey competition for the Royals. Cranbrook. play ing-coach Eric Sutcliffe will have a number of decisions to make before the series gets under way Saturday. One of them is whether to start Wayne Doll or Leo Karchie in goal against Barrie Doll played well enough through the 1973-74 season to be named an all-star in the Western International League. Karchie was in goal during the sixth and deciding game of the Cranbrook-Thunder Bay a game Royals won by a convincing 10-1 margin. One of the hottest lines for Cranbrook in playoffs this year has been the combination of left winger Billy centre Marv Ferg and right winger Ed Legare. Martin and Legare played together with the old B.C. Warriors Ferg is a product of the Cranbrook hockey organization. Geoff Powis was the Royals' scoring leader through regular season WIHL play. His 28 goals and 39 assists helped Cranbrook finish second in the one point behind Spokane Sutcliffe can give a lot of credit for his club's success to some outstanding performances from the rookies on his club like Bob Murdoch and Wayne Gibbs.
