Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Performances too hot and cold Longhorns must improve By PAT SULLIVAN HeraM Sports Editor Stan Maxwell readily ad- mits he is enjoying his first year as1 coach of the Lethbridge Longhorns of the Aibe'rta Junior Hockey League. he also admits it would be even more fun with a couple of victories in a row. don't know what it is about our says can play so well one time and then so poorly the The mired in the cellar of the six-team league with only three wins and a tie to their are at home for a pair of games this weekend. Tonight at a't Henderson they meet Edmonton Mets while Sunday the Drumheller Falcons invade Henderson at seven. Meanwhile in Blairmore the Red Devils will be idle this evening. It was reported they would play Drumheller. Sun- day afternoon they meet Ed- monton at two o'clock. It is the Longhorns' perfor- mances against the John Chapman coached Red Devils that baffles Maxwell the most. If Maxwell had his every teani in the league would wear Red Devil un- iforms. don't know exactly what it is but when we play the Red Devils our guys are really added Maxwell. While the Longhorns have only defeated the Devils as Maxwell all have been excellent games. Longhorns travelled to Ed- monton and Drumheller last weekend'and came home with a split in two games. Saturday night according to the club played its best game of the season. Things fell into place that had been in such a state of dis- order before Maxwell was more than pleased. The locals won 7-5 in the free-wheeling contest and headed for Drumheller the next day. It was a complete reversal of in particular in the third period as the Falcons skated away to an 8-2 triumph after the two clubs had been deadlocked 2-2 after 4fl minutes. Maxwell can and would not if he point a finger at any one or two or three players. he didn't like my name used when I was going You might Maxwell that from the goalkeeper out. we need a shaking up. Maxwell feels he is working his club hard enough. With the exceptioiTbf a night off after two-game the club is on the ice five times a week.. It could be worse. After the Devils defeated the Longhorns 4-1 Tuesday they went home and skated for an hour. As Maxwell put it we had won 4-11 would have given the club a week off. He may not have been serious about the week but Maxwell is dead serious when he says the club needs some points. The locals can't afford to lose any more ground. Tonight and Sunday they hope to gain some ground. Pronghorns come close northern visitors tough club By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer live and The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns suf- fered their second straight Alberta College Athletic Conference Hockey League setback on home ice Friday but all did not go to waste as they learned two very important facts of life. For one although the Pronghorns dropped a narrow 7-5 decision to the visiting Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Ookpiks at Henderson Lake Ice they were able to learn that rumors are not always true. By word of rumors had been circulated that the Edmonton club would be just too much for the first-year Pronghorns to handle and that they'd be literally crushed in their initial meeting of the season. But after watching three periods along with some 250 partisan one would have to say that somebody was just blowing his horn again. Not once did the Pronghorns look out of place on the ice against the Edmontonians and they definitely held their own throughout the three periods. the Pronghorns came to learn the hard way that one or two breaks could mean a win or a loss. The Pronghorns had their share of opportunities to win the wide-open affair but the breaks just went the other way. The Ookpiks got three breaks by receiving solid per- Fbrmances Peter McDonald. Jim Rindero and Larry Rindero who blasted in two goals apiece. Larry's first goal at the mark of the third period proved to be the winner while his second empty-net marker with 50 seconds remaining was used for insurance.
