Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HIRAID Friday, May 11, 1973 Ouebec coach lech his club can handle it Tigers' rough stuff no problem A rookie's kiss Montreal Canadiens' Larry Robinson kisses the Stan- ley Cup Thursday night. The rookie later said winning the Cup was his biggest hcckey thrill. The Canadiens defeated the Chicago Black Hawks 6-4 to take the best- of-seven final 4-2. MONTREAL Or- val Tessier hopes that some personal history repeats itself starting tonight when his Que- bec Revnparts take on Medicine Hat Tigers in the third game of the Memorial Cup round-robin. Last season, Tessier saw his Cornwall Royals, representing the Quebec Major Junior A Hockey League in Canada's na- tional major junior A hockey championship, lose the first game of the round-robin and come back to win their next two. including the final against Peterborough Petes. This season, Tessier has seen his Remparts, this year's Que- bec champions drop Lhe first game of the round-robin as they dropped a 5-2 decision to To- ronto Marlboros.

Ken Still, who fired a 68, lik- ened the course to the strike of a rattlesnake and claimed he saw a couple of them. Three players withdrew. Australian Bruce Crampton conquered the tricky, swirling wind and Texas heat with a four-under-par 66 and took a :wo-shot lead into today's sec- ond round of the tour- nament. NOT ARGUING Alone in second place was Still, who said he'll take his 68 icre without debate. "Anytime you get out of line on this course it bites you like a rattlesnake. Some of the courses you try to challenge a ittle more than others, but this is not one of them." Larry Ziegler tried. He eagled the par 5 first hole but he never finished. He arrived at the 18th green three over par, and twice knocked approach shots to the lip of a lake before backhanding i the ball into the water and stalking off. Mac McLendon withdrew ear- lier, blaming illness for an 82 score. Gay Brewer departed without comment after an 80. SIX BREAK PAR Besides Crampton and Still, only six players in the field of 100 broke Colonial's par 35-35 70 figures, including defending champion Jerry Heard. Heard, three under at one point and challenging, posted a 69 and joined former Colonial champ Julius Boros, Phil Rod- gers, Tom Weiskopf. Gibby Gil- bert and Bobby Nichols at three shots off the pace. Thirteen players matched par, including George Knudson of Toronto, and another 13 were a stroke back. Crampton was clearly in com- mand as he collected five bird- ies against one bogey enroute to a 32-34 and the same 66 total that he posted in the first round here in 1965 when he won the tournament. senting the Western Canada Hockey League. The Tigers, coincidentally are this year's WCHL representatives. But if the Remiparts are to advance to Saturday night's sudden-death championship fi- nal game against Toronto, suc- cessors to Peterborough as On- tario Hockey Association Junior A series champions, they are going to have to defeat the Ti- gers by two or more goals. A Quebec win would give each of the three participants a 1-1 won-lost record and the Ca- nadian Amateur Hockey Associ- ation (CAHA) has a tie-break- ing system set up for that possi- bility. In the event of identical won- lost records, the two finalists will be decided on a goals-for and goals-against basis. If that still leaves a tie, the goals j scored by a team will be di- vided by the goals scored against it and the' finalists will be the teams with the highest quotients.

Medicine Hat now is plus one and Quebec minus three. Quebec would have to win by two or more goals tonight to make the final because a two- goal victory would leave both the Tigers and Remparts with a minus one. Quebec would then qualify because of a higher quotient figure. If Medicine Hat wins, they qualify with the best won-lost record the Mar- lies the second best club with a 1-1 record. WONT BACK DOWN Tessier said Thursday his club would not back down from any rough stuff the Tigers dish out. Medicine Hat players ad- ministered several punishing body-checks against the Marl- boros and seemed to intimidate the Toronto club as the Tigers scored a 3-2 victory Wednesday night. "We never backed down from rough play during the Tessier said. "They aren't as rough as Cornwall was in their rink this season. They are a good, aggressive club, but there's no way they are any tougher than the Royals were. We beat Cornwall, didn't we? "I think we'll play better tonight than we did against To- ronto Monday. When we came out against Toronto, we seemed awed by them. By the time we realized we could beat them, we were behind by three. "Our defence was not carry- ing the puck as they can do on Monday. When they do that, we usually play well." Curling season o lo end Tuesday The Lethbridge Curling Club, men's section, will wind up its 1972-73 season Tuesday evening. A dinner meeting has been set for six o'clock at Erick- sen's. Presentation of awards for the year will be made at that time as well as the election of a new executive for the com- ing year. Also high on the agenda will be an outline of the proposed renovations to the curling rink. All members of the Curling Club are invited to the Tues- day affair. host the second annual Leth- bridge Lacrosse Association Challenge Cup Tournament this weekend. The two-day event will offi- cially get under way Saturday night and conclude Sunday af- ternoon at the Adams Ice Cen- tre. Last year, the Sons only had to face the Assiniboia Chiefs of Saskatchewan in a two-game total-goal series but this sea- son the annual affair has taken on a new look. The 1973 edition will feature four teams who are considered to be the best in southern Al- berta. Participating teams include the Calgary Shamrocks, Nan- ton Raiders, Taber Ebony Native Hawks and the host Sons. It had been hoped that a strong British Columbia squad would make the weekend tour- ney but due to league commit- ments they were unable to at- tend. The Shamrocks and Ebony Hawks will officially open the tourney Saturday night at 7 p.m. and will be followed by an- other encounter between the Native Sons and Nanton. The two losers will drop to the consolation final set for p.m. Sunday while the win- ners advance to the p.m. final. Meanwhile the Shamrocks are rated as the pre-tourney favorites. The experienced club from Calgary are the defending western Canada junior "B' champions and just missed the Canadian crown to Ontario las' season. Majority of the 1972 cham pionship team will be back for the 1973 campaign and for the weekend series. Nanton Raiders, who are the newest expansion team in the junior "B" ranks, should hold their own in the two-day event The Raiders will have five former Native Sons on their roster which could posibly earn them the Cup. In an exhibition match play- ed recently at Pincher Creek the Raiders dropped the Sons 10-8 which showed their explo- sive power. The Ebony Hawks can't be counted out of the running as they'll field the biggest line-up in the tourney. Size and physical strength could be their key to victory. As far as the Native Sons go, they'll suit up the least experienced club on the week- end and will definitely have their hands full. Lee Fox will be the only ex- perienced defenceman dressed and will have to aid all the other rookie rear guards. Offensively the Sons have sharp shooters Ken Boychuk and Dwayne Kirchner, who'll carry most of the load. Meanwhile the Lethbridge Midgets will see action for the first time in the Calgary Midget Lacrosse League Sunday morn- ing. The Lethbridge squad joined the Calgary league this season and will get their first taste of competitive league play against the Calgary Acadia Midgets. Game time is set for a.m. at the Adams Ice Centre. ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE East W L Pel.

"They are well balanced, have tremendous passing and so many good shooters that you can't concentrate on one man. The key to the series was that the defence stopped our running game." HAVE MORE DEPTH Last year, it was Los Angeles 4-1 over the Knicks, who had won the NBA title in 1970 by beating the Lakers. "I think we had more depth than we did the last time we the said Knicks' coach Red Holzmaru "We didn't have Jerry Lucas, Earl Monroe or Dean Meminger then." Monroe took scoring honors Cor the finale on the New York side with 23 points and Bill Bradley, the Rhodes scholar, added 20. DavD DeBusschere, who star- red two nights previously with 33 points, tallied just one field goal and sprained his right ankle in the fourth quarter when he finally did reach the scoring list. I The Lakers trailed by 14 points early in the fourth quar- ter, cut the margin to four and then sagged as Monroe and Willis Reed whipped in seven consecutive points. A national magazine voted Reed most valuable player and he received a new car. In the final game, he scored 18 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and had seven assists. The Laksrs had only one ex- cuse. Back court ace Jerry West was hampered by strained hamstring muscles in both legs. The right was bandaged for the finale and he scored only 12 points. "With Jerry hurt, our quick- ness, our speed and our running game just aren't the said Los Angeles coach Bill Sharman and even efforts of 28 points by Gail Goodrich and 23 by Chamberlain could not com- pensate for West's injuries.
