Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Nov.mber 4, 1971 THE LfTHBRIDGE HERALD Bad night for goalies in Western Canada loop By TIIU CANADIAN PllliSS It was a rough night for goal- tenders Wednesday as a total of six nelinimlers let 2ti goals slip past them in the only two scheduled Western Canada Hoc- key League games. The bulk of the scoring was done at Swift Current where the hometown Broncos humbled Vancouver Nats before fans. The netminders were busier, but more successful, at Flin Flon where the Bombers snapped a six-game losing streak with a 6-1 win over visiting Regina Pats. Wayne Inglis led Ihc .'IB-shot Swift Current assault against goalies Jim Ban kin and Keith Delano, potting three goals, while teammates Grant Lcavins and Brian Back notch- ed two each. Broncos, who held period leads of 2-0 and 8-2, got single goals from Terry McDougall, Murray Meyers, Kelly Pratt, Cord Dillon and Vcrn McCor- mick. For Nats, who mustered 22 drives against rookie Dean Valise, it was Grant Williams with two goals and Bill Ennos. Ed Harrison, Bob Clunie and John Dzus with singles. The game also featured a rash of penalties, with Vancouv- er taking nine of 17 minors and one of the three majors, while each team was assessed a game misconduct. Swift Current also received a misconduct penalty. The win for Broncos left them in last place in the league's east division, one point behind Re- gina, while Vancouver is in the same position in the west, a sin- gle point back of Victoria Cou- gars. At Flin Flon. about fans watched as an over-worked Roger Swanson put on a spec- tacular show in the Flin Flon net stopping 46 of the 50 shot Regina took at him. At the other end of the ice th Pats used two goaltenders in a attempt to stop the Bomber scoring thrust. Bernie Ger- maine, who started, and Ed Staniowski, who relieved him mid-way through the second period, faced a total of 49 shots Captain Elaine Stoughton wa: the scoring star for Flin Flon tallying three times, once inti an empty net with nine seconds remaining in the game. Don Morrison, Jim Carter anc Dennis Polonich were Flin Flon's other marksmen in the close, hard-fought game, while Dwight Bialowas, Mike Wan chuk, Clark Gillies and Scot Smith replied for Pats. The teams were tied 2-2 aftci the first period but Regina forged ahead 4-3 by the middle of the second before Bombers came back with two goals to take a 5-4 lead into the final 20 minutes. The win for Bombers, coming after a disastrous 0-5 road trip, left them in third place in the east, two points behind league- leading Brandon Wheat Kings. Bombers, however, have played at least five more games than any other team in its division. Pats Bombers have a re- turn match in Flin Flon tonight, while in other games Victoria is at Brandon and Calgary plays in New Westminster.

In the last three weeks of the Canadian r-ootball League they certainly looked like the best club in the west. 1 realize thai they had nothing to lose, but just the same they played the role of spoiler to perfec- tion and saved likeable Ray Jauch's job. It's rather ironic, this time around, that Hie coach of the year from last season didn't get his club into the playoffs. And down east the defending Grey Cup champions, the Montreal Alouettes, are also on the outside looking in. Eskimos, ignoring the fact they were as loose as the proverbial goose in the latter stages of the sched- ule, chalked up five impressive victories. All of them came against contenders for Canada's top football prize. Big deal, you may say, but they still gave every indication that they will be a club to be reckoned with next time around. It seems difficult lo believe the Calgary Stamp- eders had to literally back into top spot in the west. How could a club, which at the halfway mark had 8-1 record, lailspin so severely that they needed help from a club out of contention to earn first place? First place in the west is, regardless of what some people think, a key factor, if only because it fives the first-place finisher a few days' extra rest. Injuries play a major role in a club's chances in post-season play, and aching bones respond to rest nearly as well as trealmenl and we both know the Stampeders need the rest. In the last Calgary outing, the Cowboys looked anything but impressive. They looked more like they had just started training camp than having just fin- ished a 16-game schedule. They are not purring on all eight as they did earlier in the season, and that's the understalement of the month. As far as the playoff Saturday between Saskat- chewan Roughriders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers goes, I still think Saskatchewan has the best club in the west at present. They reached a peak with just overhalf the sea- son left, and although they didn't look that good against the Eskimos Sunday they should knock off Winnipeg in the sudden-death semi-final. Bombers have been exciting with Don Jonas leading the way, but their defence is anything but a powerhouse. They put points on the board in light- ning-like fashion bul give Ihem up at an almost sim- ilar rate. The nod from this corner goes to Ron Lancaster and the green and white from Taylor Field, if for no other reason than they are loaded with playoff experience. In the east Toronto Argonauts went out recruiting with their purses bulging, and came up with a whale of a ball club. They have the bye into the final and will watcli Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Ottawa Rough Riders batlle it out Sunday. The survivor of the Ti- Cal-Roughie straggle will have to be healthy if they want a berth in the Grey Cup, Argos are rested and champing at the bit for a trip lo Vancouver Nov. 28. 1 don't think the Ti-Cats can get past the Rough Riders. It's been uphill all the way for both clubs but the loss of Joe Zuger was a severe blow to the Tabbies. Rough Riders, on the other, were all bul counted out some weeks ago but have now come to life. They're a scrappy outfit made up, for a good part, of leftovers from other clubs, bul they have a lot of pride and momentum going for them. I'm certainly happy 1 didn't ask this question.
