Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE IETHBRIDC-E HCRAIO Mondoy, May B, 1972----- v- M ORVAL GOES OVER Orval (he daredevil clown thrilled a gathering of some stock car fans Sunday at Exhibition Speedway with his performance. Here he is shown as he leaves ihe ramp of his truck and clears a semi-trailer, landing an a pile of old cars. Orval was on hand as Ihe 1972 Soulhern Alberta Aulo Racers opened their season.

While Johnston was perform- ing acrobatics against the Rangers, New York goalie Eddie Giacomin continued to NEW YORK (CP1 When Bobby Orr is going rigM he's very, vrry good. More limn 17.250 New York fans reluctiiiitly asreed Sunday afternoon when Orr pulled all the strings in steering Boston Bruins to a 3-2 vidory over tlie hometouii Rangers. The Bruins hold a .1-1 edge in the Stanley Cap final and will have home-ice advantage Tues- day night for the fifth game of the National Hockey League's best-of-seven final. Game time is p.m. JIDT. But it may have been a costly victory. Orr, named the league's most valuable player and out- standing dcfcnceman, stopped a no television coverage antl too show a weakness on close-in shots. On Orr's first goal and the short-handed score by Marcolte, the veteran goaltentler commit- ted the sin of going down lo cover Ihe shots. In both cases, Ihe players placed their drives high. Giacomin had no chance on Orr's second goal, a 30-foot blazer lhat caromed off one of the crowd of skates m front of the New York goal. Davidson picked up by Shaiv OTTAWA (CP) Despite a number of set-backs, including shot with his already-injured left knee early in Hie second period. The knee began to swell im- mediately.

TWO QVICIi GOALS The young dcfcnceman, plagued by injuries to the same knee through most of the sea- son, wasn't hobbled by the ail- big leg in Ihe first period when he struck for quick goals and engaged Brad Park in a v.reslling m.ilcb. "IL was a misunderstanding." he said of the encounter, ex- plaining the two ''just rolled'1 and that "we didn't get in any punches." Park, who scored two goals in Lhe Rancors' 5-2 win here last Thursday, also shniacd Ihe in- i cident off as a "misundcr-j standing." While Orr carried the early little time to plr.n side attrac- tions, t h e Canadian AmEleur Hockey Association is convinced its new-look Memorial Cup Ca- nadian junior hockey playoffs opening here tonight will be a great success.

Some braved the chilly weather and were rewarded with some exciting "C" and "B" events along with a spec- tacular performance by Orval the "Daredevil Clown." Orval attempted a number of daredevil feats and had the spectators on the edge of their seats throughout the perfor- nances. After the racing events con- cluded Sunday, Ron Boyce of Lethljridge found himself in a familiar position. Boycc, driving his car num- ber one in the "B" class, took the lead in the point race, earning 15ni points during the course of afternoon.
