In its first year of operation, the LAA carried only two hockey teams, but plan to ex- pand in the near future. The two teams included the Native Sons a junior club and the Moore's Imperials which was made up of bantam aged players. A total of 12 trophies were handed out to individual play- ers for their past season ef forts. Mile Shaw had a good year for the Sons in the 1971-72 sea- son and was honored with two trophies for his fine Shaw picked up the most gentlemanly player award with a trophy for being the top junior player who show- ed the best ability, desire and attitude. Other junior players who re- ceived recognition for past sea- son performances included Ken Klinkhammer, the best de- fenceman; Randy Joevenazzo, most improved junior player; .Terry Veres, most valuable player and Tom Kveder, most unproved defenceman. In the bantam awards the winners included, Barry Huber, players' choice award; Gordon Tokariuk, best defenceman; Rob Melvin, most gentlemanly player; Brent Sauer, ability, desire and attitude award; John Kogler, most Improved player and Bill Zarooben, most valuable player. day night, Ituns, however, were another.matter. The veteran left-hander earned his third victory in four decisions by keeping the Expos in check though just 8 1-3 innings, then giving way lo Pete Mikkclson in the ninth as Los Angeles Dodgers defeated Montreal 5-2. Los Angelcg won the game with four runs In the fourth in- ning, including a two-run homer by Steve Garvey, lu's second of the season. The Expos got a run in each of the first two innings, but nothing after that. The Los Angeles-Montreal game was the only NaUonal League contest played Monday. In the only American League game, New York Yankees beat Minnesota Twins 5-3. THREW FAST BALLS "I threw fast balls about 90 per cent of the time out explained Osteen after the game. "I have two kinds of fast ball, one's a sinker and the oiher dips a bit." Unfortunately for the Dodg- ers, neither was working all that well. The Expos racked Os- teen for 11 luts, had oilier base runners on three walks and three Los Angeles errors, bul left a tolal of 12 men on base. "I didn't have that much con- Osteen conceded. "I couldn't, move the ball around like I wanted lo. "Every time I got Into a bit of a that means most o[ the mixed in a few sli- ders with my fast balls." The Expos scored in the firs'. on Ron Hunt's leadoff single, a passed ball by Dodger catcher Dick Dietz and Mike Jorgen- sen's run-scoring single lo right. They scored again in the second on Ron Fairly's single and a double to deep left centre by Hunt. The Dodgers got on the score- joard in the third when Osteen drove in Garvey with a double, The Dodgers' four-run fourth in- ning outburst closed out the scoring and made a loser out ol Montreal starter Jim McAnally, 0-1. The Expos had a golden op- portunity in Hie sixth when [hey loaded the bases with one out on a single by John Boccabella, and errors by Bill Buckncr and Maury Wills. But Osleen got Jorgcnsen lo hil into a double play to end that threat. In the ninth, after Hunt lined out to open the inning, Jorgen- sen and Pion Woods poked back-lo-back singles to knock out Osteen. But Mikkelson came in to strike out Bob Bailey and Ken Singleton for his first sava of the season. The Yankees ended a five- game Minnesota winning streak and a 10-game personal streak by Berl Blyleven, 4-1, dating back to Aug. 22. Mel Stottle- myre, 2-3 got the win for tho Yankees, with relief help from Sparky Lyle. Johnny C ;i 111 s o n, acquired from Chicapo Cubs in the oil- season, hit liis first homer as a Yankee in the sixth inning.
