Phone 327-3221 CURT WOLSEY GRABS FOR ELUSIVE BALL Letdown in late going cost Pronghorns a game By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A late letdown and a couple of tough breaks meant the ball game Saturday- night as the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns dropped a narrow 65-62 deci- sion to the UBC Thunderbirds at the U of L gymnasium. With just remaining, the locals held a hard-earned 62-57 lead, but the T-Birds. sparked veterans Steve Pettifer and Blake Iverson. took advantage of a pair of Pronghorn miscues to score six straight points in two minutes. IversoR's jumper from the corner put UBC into the lead 63-62 with 37 seconds showing on the clock. The T-Birds stuck on a full-court press, but Richard Foggo got the ball to Phil Letham to start off a two- on-one break. Letham had a chance to put the locals back in the lead when he pulled up for a 12- foot jumper, but his shot bounced off the back rim with 20 seconds left UBC got the rebound, called a time out. and stalled the ball until Ed Lewin salted it away with three seconds to go The Pronghorns couldn't buy a basket in the late going, and they were also hurt by a couple of questionable calls by the men in stripes. Both coaches agreed that the refereeing detracted from the game, and 550 local fans expressed their displeasure on several occasions "But. it was bad both ways." said coach Robin Fry. "No excuses it was our ball game and we let it get away. The guys let down when we had that five-point lead, and you can't do that against a club like UBC." "Part of the problem was simply our in- experience, but we'll get better." Fry added "And I think we're playing good basketball." The large crowd would have to agree to that, as they were treated to a sec-saw game with the biggest lead being a 10-pomt UBC spread early in the second half The locals started out fast when Letham stole the ball and laid it in with only IS seconds gone. and. sparked by the perfor- mance of center Lauren Edlund. led until amost half-time Edlund scored 12 points in 1bc firsl half. many from 20 feel as Ihc taller I'BC centers refused to come out on him t'BC finally took Ihe lead with mmules remaining and earned a 3 Jead into Uie dressing room The Pronphorns came ou1 really rold in second half, and only phenomenal shooting by rookie Richard F-OCRO kepi Ihe locals in the game On several Foceo was furred Jo lire i1 up in desperalion when he found himself with no one 1o pass 1o. but each time the ball found 1nc hoop UBC quickly built up a 42-32 lead, bul the Pronghorns battled back to tie it at 52- 52 with seven minutes remaining, using a 1-2-2 half-court squeeze to rattle the Birds. Roger Baldry's free throw gave the locals a one-point lead, and seconds later. Baldry won a jump ball and sent Joey Shackleford and Foggo off on a two on one break. Shackleford hit Foggo under the basket, and the youngster flipped it in just as he was fouled. Foggo missed the free throw, but Edlund was there to tip it in and give the Pronghorns a 57-62 lead with left. From there, the two clubs traded baskets until UBC rallied in the late going. Steve Pettifer's soft jump shot and slick moves under the basket produced 32 points for the T-Birds. while Iverson had 14 points and Ed Lewin chipped in with 10. For the Pronghorns, Foggo racked up 19 points. 13 of them in the second half, and Edlund notched 14 Phil Letham was the only other Pronghorn to reach double figures with 12 points.

"The turnovers were the big said coach Payne, who emphasized before the game that the team that made the fewest mis- takes would win. Saskatchewan quarterback Ron Lancaster threw four passes that were picked off by the Eskimos and the inter- ceptions led directly to 14 Ed- monton points The Eskimos appeared to emerge from the rough contest in good physical shape for next Sunday's Grey Cup game against Montreal Alouettes. "They've got an outstanding defensive team that forces the opposition to make mis- commented Jim Ed- dy, Saskatchewan's defensive coach. "That front four of theirs is fast and said Lan- caster, a 12-year veteran who declined to say if he'd be back with the Roughriders next season. The key interception was a third-quarter steal by Dick Dupuis who scooted 38 yards for a touchdown to give the Levy says game was tough MONTREAL (CP) -Coach George Brancato of Ottawa Rough Riders is stuck with the cliche "that's the way the ball bounces." And coach Marv Levy is try- ing to erase the impression that his Montreal Alouettes had an easy time in the Eastern Football Conference final Sunday with a 14-4 vic- tory over the Riders. The Montreal win put the Als into their second Grey Cup game in five seasons. Several lucky bounces helped Ottawa defeat Hamilton TigerCats 21-19 a week earlier in the EFC semi- final, but its fortunes reversed against the Als. The biggest bounce of the day gave Montreal slotback Johnny Rodgers a 47-yard touchdown. At 9 42 of the first quarter, Montreal quarterback Jimmy Jones threw a first-down, sideline pass for running back Larry Smith. But Ottawa line- backer Jerry Campbell deflec- ted it. The ball caromed off Camp- bell directly to Rodgers, and the former Heisman Trophy winner continued in full flight into the end zone. Don Sweet kicked the convert. "That was the only real score of the Brancato said of the contest played on a field left greasy by rain. "And if it hadn't tipped off the hands of our guy, it might have been just another bouncing ball." Montreal's other touchdown came on the last play when fullback Steve Ferrughelli bulled over from the Ottawa three-yard line with hundreds of young fans from the crowd of 20.531 already swarming over the field. Sweet never got a chance to kick the convert amid the chaos.

This week the Kodiettes were victorious at their basketball tournament and the Kodiaks came home the consolation winners. The Kodiettes swept all three of their games in the Camrose girl's tournament to return home as champions while the Kodiaks won one and lost one at the Mount Royal Cougar Classic and ended up as consolation event winners.

In the championship game the Kodiettes walked all over NAIT 66-29, once again led by Lazarick with 21 points. Yuill had 18 and Shirley Lehto chipped in with 11. In men's action the Kodiaks didn't fare as well. Stingray club performed well "We didn't play well at Kodiak coach Ben Brooks stated. "In fact we were not even part of the first game. It was a pathetic experience." The LCC team dropped a 105-74 decision to a tough Treasure Valley College squad from Ontario, Oregon. "We made them look very coach Brooks added. "Our ball club only hit on 23% of our field goal attempts and we didn't control a quarter of the rebounds, either offensive- ly or defensively." Glen Schuler was the top point getter for the Kodiaks with 16. Gregg Hess had 12 and Al Pard 11. In the consolation event the LCC nipped Mount Royal 67- 65.

Cutler came back with a 27-yard boot in the final quarter after Lancaster, un- der a heavy rush, threw into the arms of Edmonton's John Farhnger. McLaren picked off a Lan- caster toss late in the game to end a Saskatchewan threat and Cutler then added a 27- yard single Cutler, the leading Canadian Football League scorer for the second straight year, also had a 29-yard field goal and made the converts following Roy Bell's six-yard scoring scamper. Calvin Harrell's six- yard touchdown on a pass from Tom Wilkinson and Dupuis' major.

Wilkinson, who completed 16 of 27 passes for 191 yards, sat out part of the second half in favor of Bruce Lemmerman after being shaken up. He returned to finish the game and said he should be ready for the Grey Cup Edmonton coach Ray Jauch said there didn't appear to be any serious injuries to his players. The touchdown by Dupuis appeared to give Edmonton a comfortable margin, but the Roughriders. playing in their ninth consecutive WFC final, refused to quit.
