Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 _ THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD - Thursday, November 19, 1970 Civic Centre scene of battle Friday night ;s open sche By I'AT SI 1.1,1 VAN Herald Sports Writer Friday evening at I he Civic Centre Logan Tail, will set out to do something Robin Fry and the University of Lethbridge Chinooks couldn't do last \ear, make the pla> of is. Tait took over for Fry, v.ho lias gone lo furlher liis education, this year and it is his ambition to get the second - year Chinooks into the playoffs of the Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Association Basketball League. I'm hopeful of a successful year," said the coach, who himself was a star performer when the Lethbridge B r o d e r's Chi- nooks ruled the senior basketball scene in Canada. "All the boys are working hard," the coach continued, "they're really putting out." Chinooks open the season Friday when the University of Winnipeg pays an eight o'clock visit to the Civic Centre. Tait openly admits he knows very little about any of the clubs in the conference with the exception of three. Tait and his charges took part in the Tri-University Classic two weeks ago and played the host University of Calgary and the University of Alberta. They beat the Calgary Dinosaurs but lost to the Golden Bears in the final of I ho single - knockout event. Chinooks won the event in their ini- tial year as they hosted the four-team event. The other team in the tourney was the University of Saskatchewan, Sask atoon Huskies. Chinooks didn't play the Huskies but Tait had a good look at them and was impressed. Heading into the season Tait feels the strong clubs will be Uic defending champion University of British Columbia Tiiun-derbirds, the Golden Bears and the University of Manitoba Bisons. Chinooks get their first look at the Bisons Monday evening at the Civic Centre. The new Chinook mentor was pleased with his club's performance in Calgary. "We needed a win for confidence and beating the Dinosaurs gave us the confidence we needed," said Tait. Golden Bears wer.e a tall, strong club with a great deal of bench strength something the Chinooks may find lacking during the course of the year. While Tait is quietly optimistic about his club's chances this season he has one big ace in the hole in Tim Tollestrup. Reports have it, and a great many southern Albertans will verify it, that Tollestrup is as good as any player in the conference. He has all the qualifications. He is big, 6'8", of solid build and has four years experience in American college 'basketball having spent the four years with Utah State. He was a standout with the Raymond Comets in high school and has improved steadily, Around Tollestrup, Tait plans to build. Joining Tollestrup on the front line will be Peter Kootchin. At 6'4" Koochin led the Chinooks last year in scoring and all round hustle. Kootchin carried the greatest portion of the re-sponsiblity last year and combining with Tollestrup can only help his performances. Brian Saunders is the other starting forward. Saunders, in his second year with the club is 6'6" and according to his coach is playing the best basketball he has in years. Randy Milner and Peter Haig have drawn the starting guard assignments it would appear but strong pressure is coming from newcomer Clark Sloan. "Sloan has really been playing well," said Tait. When the coach goes to the bench it will be a first - year man who gets the call as Tail's bench is all new. Eric Peterson, Doug Kemp, Cam Burr, John Christensen and Ken Peterson all have landed berths with the Chinooks and only experience is keeping them from regular duty. Tait wants his club in the playoffs. The new coach didn't have too much to do with losing as a competitor. He isn't looking forward to it in his coaching endeavors. The Chinooks, under Tait, could surprise a good many clubs in the conference. Stampeders blow chances of two straight victories rs for McQuarters, Canada's Lineman of the Year in 1967, who led the Roughriders to the 1966 Grey Cup with a 50-yard touchdown on a fumble recovery in the WFC final against Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Larry Robinson accounted for Calgary's points with 28-yard field goal. Saskatchewan coach Eagle Keys said the break that gave the Roughriders the touchdown was one of the few that come their way.

We go out and kill each other and they run up and down the field." Pre-Christiisets Gerry Klinkhammer, Dave Ma-doche and Al Rowntree picked up a goal apiece.

One of the men to get hurt was Saskatchewan quarterback Ron Lancaster, who left the game early in the third quarter with an injured muscle in his back. EXPECTS HIM BACK Coach Eagle Keys said the extent of the injury was not yet known but suggested Lancaster would probably be calling signals in Regina Nov. 22 during the deciding game against Calgary. Calgary won the first game in Saskatchewan 28-11 last Saturday. Nolan Bailey, Saskatchewan offensive end, suffered an injured knee and is not expected to play next Sunday. Calgary had several players shaken up, but all are expected in the lineup for the deciding match. The break that gave Saskatchewan the touchdown was one of the few that came their way during the game, Keys said. The club had on a full blitz when they got Keeling, he said, but also pointed out that two plays earlier, when Herm Harrison took a pass to move Calgary deep into Roughrider territory a blitz was also called. r GLENDALE BOWL TRACY'S STYLISTS Judy Harnack 315 (709); Dot Anderson 257 (695); Bea Salmon 300 (6891; Alma Tolley 258 (682); VI Pries 254 (651); Bunny Anderson 237 (643); Pat Norlin 293 (732); E.

Corner 7th Street and 1st Avenue South An early diagnosis on Lancaster's injury has it a braised kidney and possible rib damage. According to one Calgary Stampeder assistant coach "the little General (Lancaster) will be in there Sunday if they have to freeze half of his body." Nolan Bailey, Saskatchewan offensive end, suffered a knee injury in the first half and is expected to miss the final game. His place likely will be taken by handyman Al Ford. Linebacker Chuck Kyle of Saskatchewan and defensive backs Gig Perez and Frank An-druski, both of Calgary, had to be helped off the field, but they all returned after a short rest. The Rougliriders took a 1-0 lead in the first quarter when Abendschan kicked a single after missing a 21-yard field goal. Calgary rallied with Rob-insoifs" field goal in the second quarter before Abendschan booted his three points in the third. Gary Lane, Saskatchewan's backup quarterback, set up the important field goal. Lane, who joined the WFC champions late in the season, marched the Roughriders from the Stampeders' 44 to the 15 on seven plays before Calgary forced the field goal attempt. STAMPEDERS THREATEN With Calgary on the Saskatchewan 45-yard line and 1:40 remaining in the game, Keeling hit tight end Herm Harrison with a 21-yard pass. Fullback Hugh McKinnis got one yard for the Stampeders on a rushing play to move the ball to the 23. Then McQuarters took over. In statistics, the Roughriders had the edge in every department. They had a net offence of 306 yards, including 160 yards rushing, while Calgary got 246 yards. Fullback George Reed, recovering from a leg injury which sidelined him for 30 days, was the offensive star for Saskatchewan with ]09 yards ruh-ing on 17 carries. McKinnis paced Calgary with 64 yards on 15 carries.

"Hamilton has real pros," said Restic, "and when the pressure's on they'll shine." The Ticats are three-point favorites to win their second game of the Eastern Football Conference final with Montreal Alotieiles here Saturday. But the Als have a 10-point cushion in the two-game total-points series following last Sunday's 32-22 win in Montreal. Restic indicated the Tiger-Cats will go to the kicking game whenever the opportunity is there in an effort to eliminate Montreal's lead. "We'll try to pick up points any way we can," said Restic, who feels the Als played the best game they've played all year in the opening game of the final. "I was happy to get out of Montreal only 10 points down," he said. IT'S NOT A LIE!-This 44-inch, 25.-pound pike was taken out of Chin Lake at the weekend by commercial fisherman George Royer of Arrowwood. In a number of years of commercial fishing, this is the biggest Royer has caught. The world record for pike is 46 pounds. Larger pike caught in the south's irrigation water impoundments include one that nudged the 40-pound mark, out of Lake Newell near Brooks and two 35 pounders out of St. Mary Reservoir.
