Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 'lit UlHBRIDGt HERALD Wednesday, Novomboi 25, 19X0 Raymond Cornels defending champions h school hoop season goes Friday The Southern Allicrla "A" Boys Basketball U'aguc kicks off aiiolhcr season Friday eve- ning and for five (cams Ilirir olijcclivc is the simo. All five clubs are out to unseal Hie Ray- mond Cornels. It's an old story that the op- position hates success and Bob Gibb and his Cornels have eii- joyud a great deal of success. Comets will be joined once again in the league by Magraih Zeniths, Cardston Cougar s, Catholic Central Cougars, Leth- bridge Collegiate Rams and Medicine Hat High School. Friday evening a full slate of games is scheduled. Medicine Hat travels to Cardston, Jla- jtrath visits LCI while Catholic Central is at home to Raymond All "A" games arc set for an 8 p.m. start with a "B" game preceding at Cornels have an enviable rec- ord to say the least. When one talks of a dynasty it could very easily refer to the Comets and southern Alberta basketball as well as the game on a pro- vincial level. Cornels, in Ihe past nine years, have won the Alberta "A" championship on five occa- sions. Only one oilier (cam, tho Hams, of the same league has won a provincial tille. The Hams did it in 1365. Three (itles won their titles In 1962, M, 67, GO and last year, 1970. The next champion will be the 1971 vvin- j nor. I went to Calgary teams. Comets Ciibb and his chargers havo to be given lliu inside track on iho league title. Besides being defending champs they have already chalked, up one tourna- ment victory in pre-season play. Last weekend the Comets won the lUagrath invitalional and included in the tournament entries were Cardston and LCI as well as the Zeniths. If there is one thing missing in Ihe Raymond line-up it is a Tolleslrup. In each ot the Com- et championships there was at least one Totlestrup in the liue- up. Gibb feels tlie league will be tougher tliis year as he only has two players back from last year, Gary Williams and Lloyd Fairbanks. If the pro-season nod is up for grabs il could very easily be the Magrath Zenillis who will turn (he trick of upending Hie Comets. Hay Stephenson has six back from last year's, club and feels lie will be heard from during the season. Cardslon, coached by Elaine Bunnage, will have three back from 1969-70. The Cougars, af- ter dropping a decisive setback to the host Zeniths in the Ma- grath tourney finished third behind the Zeniths and Comets as they shaded LCI Bams 40-38 in the final. Rams, under Hugh Tamblyn, came home from Magrath empty-handed but were close. After romping past Milk River Cornels 50-29 in their first game the Hams lost 45-11 to the Raymond Comets ami then were edged in the Battle for laird place. It will be a rebuilding year at Catholic Central but coach Dean Dahl could surprise when the league gets down to busi- ness. Medicine Hat has been ab- sent from the league for a cou- ple of years but, feel they have strengthened and are ready for "A" competition again. All clubs are hopeful as Uie new year draws nearer but it all boils down to the same old story. The red and white Hay- mond Comets are still the club to teat. The annual e i g h t-team LCI Invitational tournament, is scl to get under way next Friday afternoon. Teams from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Brit i s h Colum- bia and Montana will take part in the two-day affair. Officials announced the open- ing draw today.

Williams left two years ago for the League, National Football but Keeling now is number one with the Stamped- pass in tlie Canadian Football Lengue and he was thought lo be an ideal backup man if Peter Liske, the Stampeders quarter- back in those days, should be ill or injured. But they openly doubled Reeling's ability to be a first-stringer. Last Sunday at Regina, when the Stampeders eliminated Sas- katchewan Roughriders from the western playoffs with a i5-i4 squeaker, it was Keeling at the helm.

Lane fum- bled on first and third down and Saskatchewan failed to score. Stampeders won the game 15- 14 on Larry Robinson's field goal in the last seconds ot play and took the series two games to one, to earn the right to meet Montreal Alouettes in Toronto Saturday in the Grey Cup final. Campbell says "While the game films won't change the final score, they certainly in- dicate that the work turned in by the game officials was cer- tainjy not of the cal'bre one would expect in a professional football playoff game." So Uie Aloueltes, because they beat Hamilton, arc making an- other trip to time for the national championship.

"That field was getting pretty hard out there this said Elcheverry. "f liear it's supposed to be about 25 down in Toronto. "We are having some broom ball shoes sent along just in ease we come up with a frozen field this weekend. But I'm really hoping for warmer weather. We didn't slip around that much in the mud." The forecast for the Grey Cup weekend is wet snow or rain Friday continuing into the early part of Saturday with afternoon temperatures Saturday a little above freezing.
