Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Thurcdoy, Nevembw 19, 1970 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD _ 13 Foreman remains unbeaten Frazier had little trouble with LEFT HOOK ENDS IT FOR FOSTER-Heavyweight champion Joe Frazier, right, lands the left hook that ended it for challenger Bob Foster Wednesday night in Detroit. Foster, challenging for the heavyweight championship, was knocked back into the ropes and then fell to the floor to end the fight. Imlach. Sabres Belt Leah ant return By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Punch Imlach wasTt little apprehensive Wednesday night about his first visit to Maple Leaf Gardens since his dismissal by Toronto Maple Leafs after the 1968-69 season. For 10 years, as general manager and coach, he had listened to exultant cheers when the team was riding a crest, and just as often bore the brunt of jeers when they were in a slump. But Toronto fans were rewarded with four Stanley Cups in the Imlach era. Wednesday night they didn't forget. � His appearance behind the Buffalo Sabres' bench prompted a standing ovation from 16,354 Toronto patrons. And when it was all over, with the expansionist Sabres 7-2 victors over Toronto, those who remained until the bitter end cheered a triumphant return. In other games, Boston Bruins and New York Rangers reclaimed a share of first place in the NHL's East Division, the Bruins by hammering Minnesota North Stars 8-4 and New York with a 5-3 win over Los Angeles Kings. Tonight, Toronto is at Montreal, California Seals visit Philadelphia Flyers and St. Louis Blues play the Penguins at Pittsburgh. Two former Leafs contributed most to the Buffalo offence. The first of Gerry Meehan's two Pats thump Elks 7-1 Taber built up a 3-0 first period lead Wednesday night at the Civic Centre and coasted to a 7-1 triumph over Lethbridge Elks in Southern Alberta Juvenile League action. Kerry Ishida amd Perry Snock-ey paced the Pats with two goals each. Singletons came off the sticks of Hal Couillard, Owen Clelland and AI Zanolli. Fred Hoffarth scored the lone Elk's marker in the final period. The Elks got the nod on six of 11 penalties called in the game. Weekend Special!

But it was Roger Crozier, the little Bracebridge, Ont., goal-tender Imlach took in the June draft from Detroit Red Wings, who provided the Sabres with their first road victory since they opened the season with a 2-1 win over Pittsburgh Penguins. Crozier faced a barrage of 46 shots and was clearly the instrument of a Toronto defeat that sent the Leafs into the NHL's East Division basement, two points behind Buffalo. The addition of veterans Don Marshall and Phil Goyette to the Buffalo lineup provided much of the poise missing from their early games. The two players, training camp holdouts, came to terms with the Sabres last Friday and Marshall responded in his first shift with a power-play goal in the first period to tie the score 1-1. DETROIT (AP) - Joe Frazier is a deadly puncher like great heavyweights of the past, but until he beats Muhammad Ali he will be a pretender rather than a king to boxing fans. Frazier put his skills on display Wednesday night and was impressive as he knocked out light heavyweight champion Bob Foster in two rounds in his first title defence since he knocked out Jimmy Ellis last February. A crowd of only 6,300-second to the Ali-Sonny Listen fight in Lewiston, Me. in 1965 as the smallest heavyweight title turnout in modern history-showed up at 12,50o-seat Cobo Arena for the feature half of the closed-circuit television double-header. Unbeaten heavyweight George Foreman stopped Boone Kirk-man in two rounds in the opener in New York's Madison Square Garden. But the Frazier victory cleared another block to a fight with Ali. LISTS POSSIBLE SITES "I'm not talking about any fights for about three weeks," said Frazier's manager, Yank Durham, who then mentioned New York, Houston and Phila-# delphia as possible sites for a Frazier-Ali fight which could be in February. "We will get together and talk," said Durham who added, "He might want more money than I want and then there wouldn't be any fight." "I want Joe Frazier," Ali shouted after watching the bout on closed circuit television in Atlanta) where he defeated Quarry last month in his first fight since he was stripped of his heavyweight title for refusing induction into the Army. "Clay's not gonna take the pressure that Joe's gonna put on him," said Foster. Promoters feel that a fight between the two would be the most lucrative in history-grossing up to $10 million. The next block to the dream fight is Oscar Bonavena, the brawling Argentine who will fight Ali Dec. 7 in Madison Square Garden. There also is the five-year prison sentence that went with Ali's conviction, a conviction which still is being appealed. The U.S. Supreme Court has been asked by the U.S. justice department to act on the appeal within the next 90 days. Frazier's demolition job on Foster kept Foster from being the first light heavyweight champion to win the heavy- weight crown. Seven previous light heavy champs tried unsuccessfully nine times for boxing's big prize. "One thing I can say about him is he has a good left hook," said Foster. It was three deadly hooks that smashed Foster senseless at 49 seconds of the second round. "I slipped a jab and hit him with a left hook for the first knock down," said Frazier. "The second time I doubled up with the left hook to the body and to the bead." Foster got up at the count of nine after the first knockdown and it was obvious he was In deep trouble. "I don't think the referee should have let Bob come out after the first knockdown," said Frazier. When Foster went down for the second time, referee Tom Erisco could have counted far past 10. In fact, Foster was still unsteady when his handlers helped him from the ring. Frazier said he did get stung by a right hand, Foster's power punch, in the first round. "But I always get stung in the first or second round and then I go to work." Ahearne upset over letter LONDON (CP) - John F. (Bunny) Ahearne, president of the International Ice Hockey Federation, said Wednesday: "Canada is not only stupid but childish." Bunny, who has a transatlantic love-hate relationship with Canadian hockey, was talking in an interview about the chance of Canada getting back into international competition after pulling out of this year's HHF series. Bunny was particularly steamed up about a letter he said he received a few weeks ago from the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association suggesting that the winners of next year's world title should play one series with Canada in Canada and one in Europe. "Of course, I can't support this," said Bunny, "By implica- Overtime triumph to _ Jrvii g's Doug's remained the only unbeaten team in the City Men's Basketball League Wednesday with a narrow 55-54 win over Ron's in overtime. A five-minute overtime period was played after the clubs finished regulation time in a 48-48 deadlock. Don McClain led the way for Doug's with 19 points while Bill Kenney chipped in with 14. Rick Neilson hooped 20 and Hugo Brees 11 for Ron's. In the first game Capri belted Great West Tires, with Glen Alexander leading the way, 78-37. Alexander turned in a 260-point performance for the winners. Don Tillotson rammed in 16. Bruce Restall was top man for the tiremen with 10. tion, the Canadian team would be wholly or partly pro." That's where this stupid and childish quote came in. Canada quit the HHF tournament last winter because of a squabble ova- its proposal to play several pros or reinstated pros in the national team, which has been getting kicked around in recent years in world competition. Ahearne, not too well liked by Canadian amateur hockey officials, has said that he voted to let Canada use the pros. But Avery Brundage, head of the International Olympics Committee, let it be known that any country playing against Canada in the HHF tourney would have trouble getting into the next Olympic Winter Games. Ahearne said Wednesday that as of now Canada seems shut out of the 1971 HHF hockey tournament in Switzerland, even though it might feel like dropping from its customary spot in A Group to the B or C category. He said the top slots are filled. But Bunny said he likes the Canadians and will be prepared to support them-even with pros -at the 1972 HHF tournament. "I stand by the Canadians using reinstated pros," he said. However, he pointed out, this could bring up again the old question of the Canadians and teams playing against them being outlawed from the Olympics. Ahearne doesn't care to make a judgment on this so far ahead. But so far as he's concerned for the 1972 HHF games, "I'm prepared to leave the door open to the Canadians." Much will depend on how long Avery Brundage, the iron-fisted American who heads the International Olympics Committee, hangs on. Millionaire Brundage is expected to retire in 1972. That would' clear the air for Canadian hockey. ANDY CAPP YEAH, ON THE OTHER HANCi -MEE.BE 'E'S UOVEb AN' WON bON'T GIMME THAT) -VOL/ KNEW WHAT, Y�R WERE SAVIN' ALL RIGHT!!
