Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE lETIIflRIOGE HERALD Frlcloy, November 4, 1970 A STICKY SITUATION Vancouver Canucks' goalie George Gardner (1) falls on puck during slkky situation in recent game wilh Pittsburgh Penguins.

It was a busy night for Gardner 05 Ihe Penguins belted the first- year Canucks 8-3. Chuvalo Scares TKO Paduano Sharp Against Ross i MONTREAL welterweight champion Donate Paduano, pressed constantly by Hie in-close slugging ot veteran Dem Hoss, gave a demonstration of lightning fists and counter- punchiag Tuesday night to win a 10-round split decision. Blood still flowing from a cut over his lelt eye, Ross, a 33- y e a r m 1 d journeyman boxer from Toronto, said in his dress- ing room after the fight that the Montrealer was "the sharpest boy I've fought." Following the action-packed match that kept Forum fans roaring through every round, the 21-year-old Paduaio said his 22nd straight victory as B pro had come against a man "who just has too much heart." "He just kept on he eaid. "He's strong and hit me some really hard shots." In the semi-final on the five- fight card, Canadian heavy- weight champion George Chu- valo had considerably less trou- ble getting a win as he stalked Tony Ventura of Buffalo, N.Y., for three rounds before the fight Chuvalo was hammering was stopped at of the j (he defenseless American boxer fourth.

This came up at a news luncheon Thursday to announce the figlit ivhen Ali, also known as Cassiu-S Clay, was asked if he regarded the fight with Bonav- ena as a tuneup. "Tuneup? It's no he said. "it's a serious light. He's a bull, he doesn't cut easy. He Fought Joe Frazier 25 rounds, knocked him down twice, and gave him a good lumping the second time." RANKED NO. 1 Bonavena, who has a 46-H record, including 32 knockouts, is ranked as Ihe No. 1 contender hy the World Boxing Associa- tion. Ali, 30-0 with 24 knockouts, isn't even ranked by the WEA, which stripped him o[ Ill's heav- yweight crown when he refused induction into military service. The New York Athletic Com- mission did the same. "The fight is not a title said Edwin B Doolcy, chairman of the New York Stale Athletic Commission. "It's just for the right to fight Joe Frazier frir the title. recognize. Joe Frazier as norld champion." All's cut of the fight could come to a. whopping mer world heavyweight cham- pion Sonny Listen here in Feb- ruary. Paduano weighed 152 pounds for Thursday night's bout but will have to trim down to the 147-pound welterweight limit by Dec. 7 when he meets world lightweight champion Ken Bu- chanan of Edinburgh in a non-ti- tle fight at Madison Square Gar- dens. Hoss was for the fight. He announced later thai he too would try to meet the welter limit for another crack at Pad- uano's Canadian title some lime in the future. Paduano's win was due in part Lo a quick start in the first two rounds and a dozen flurries in the ninth and 10th that counted for some come-back points. The judges split the decision mth two giving the Montrealer the edge at 18-46 and and the third calling it at 47-47 draw.

Boston Blanked By Blues Heat, Not Bruins, Got lly NICK 1'UIUUS Canadian Press SlafC M'rilur The only Ihing (hat boat Glenn Hall Thursday night was the hrat at Boston Garden. The veteran St. Louis Blues goallcndcr turned back 25 shots before retiring after the second period from heat exhaustion as the Blues tripped Boston Bruins 2-0 in National Hockey League action. In other games Thursday, De- troit Iteil Wings clipped Phila- delphia Flyers 3-1 and Vancou- ver Canucks dumped Buffalo Sabres 4-1. Ernie Wakely re-placed Hall in the Blues net for the final 20 minutes and continued to baffle -Br Pat Sullivan SULLY SAYS lialo JOHN CHAPMAN is no angel. He has no and is lacking a set wings. Chapman, how- ever, is human. Word was received from the headquarters of the Alberta Junior Hockey League that Chapman, rookie coach of the Lethbridge Sugar Kings, as of Thurs- day, was indefinitely suspended pending the out- come of a meeting in Calgary Monday. From where I sil, it is to be more like a hearing. Chapman was ejected from a league encounter in Calgary Tuesday evening for an altercation with Calgary fans. It seems they were in lull support of the Sugar King opponents, Mount Royal College Cougars. Rightly so, I say. When in Rome do as the Romans do when at home cheer for the home club. The cheering, to say the least, got out of hand. So much so that, as a last resort, Chapman came to blows with one of the spectators. It was because of this incident that Chapman will miss the weekend games the Sugar Kings play. He is on the shelf for an act that 1 am certain anyone of us would have committed. Junior hockey are an unruly group at the best of times, have the die-hard core ol fanatics in Lethbridge. What we don't have, at least 1 hope not, is the low, inexcusable group that the Sugar Kings had to put up -with in Calgary Tuesday. From profane language at its worst to the end result of heing spat upon, the Kings and Chapman were subjected to this treatment. Chapman should be rewarded and not punished. He used all the re- straint possible for two periods, but he understand- ably had had his fill. So severe was the incident that Calgary coach Bert Olmstead came to Chapman's aid. The unruly fans didn't even show the home coach respect. You might ask what Chapman was thinking of? Why didn't he summon the referee or a rink at- tendant, or even a police officer? As Chapman put it "the referee had all he could do to run the game. As for attendants or po- lice officers they were non-existent." Chapman, according to rumors, will receive a three- game suspension and a severe warning that if it happens again he will be suspended for one year. His wallet may also feel the blow. One league official has had the audacity to brand Chapman a trouble maker, the type of coach the Alberta Junior Hockey League can do without. ff the Alberta league is to be a first-class oper- ation then let's have it run like one. Had there been some sort of official on hand in Calgary this taste- less situation could have been avoided. There is al- ways a city policeman or security guards at the Sugar King home games, f have seen them in Red Deer, but nowhere else. The responsibility should be on the home team to afford at least some pro- tection to the visiting clubs. We have, in most ways, come a long way since the Scoreboard read Lions 7, Christians 0. But one must wonder if we haven't, at times like this, taken a step backwards. As T said before, Chapman is no angel. He was on the carpet during the exhibition season. He has, and he'll be the first to tetl you, been wrong on oc- casion. Such was not the case Tuesday, Nov. a. John Chapman, coach of the Lclhbridge Sugar Kings, did right. If my son were playing hockey under such conditions it would be consolation, if there is such a thing in a situation as this, to know that the coach would jeopardize his position to come to bat for my son and all the sons on the club.

Marseille's goal entled Boston's lC3-minulc, 53-second shutout string. It was the first home ice detent in 29 games for the Bruins, since Jan. 17, when Chicago Black Hawks slopped them 1-0. The victory by Ihe Blues, tho first by a West Division team against the Bruins at Boston since Oakland dumped them 3-1 Dec. 25, 196B, gave St. Louis 15 poiiils, 0116 lass than Chicago, the West Division leaders. Boston remained tied in first place of the East Division wilh Montreal Cauadiens and New York "angers, all wilh 15 points. At Buffalo, the Canucks beat Ihe Sabres for the second time in two weeks.

Buffalo took a 1-0 first-period learl hut Vancouver stormed hack wilh Lwo second-period goals by Pan! Popiel, his second and third of the season. Third- period goals 49 seconds apart by Orland Kurtenbach and Wayne Miiki slammed Ihe door on Buf- falo, who have losl their last five games. MISS CHANCE Sabres missed an opportunity to tie the score in the second period when Paul Andrea failed to beat Canuck goalie Dune Wil- son on a penalty shot. Andrea was awarded the shot after being pulled down from behind by Barry Wilkens. At Detroit, veteran fiordie Howe scored his sixth goal of Ihe campaign and picked up an assist, leading the Red Wings to the'r fourth win in 13 games. Defenceman Larry Broun, ac- quired from New York last weekend, scored in the second period to break a 1-1 tie before Howe added the insurance mar- ker in the third period. Elsewhere, Minnesota North Stars sent defenceman Dick Redmond to Cleveland Barons of the American Hockey League. Minnesota general manager Wren Blair said Cleve- land's ranks have been thinned by five injuries and that Red- mond needed more ice time.
