Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta A BASKETBALL SHUTOUTT-ll can't happen, can it? It's possible but very unlikely that a leam could regisler a shutout in basketball. This was the scoreboard Friday evening at the Community College at the final buzzer in the game 'between Lefhbrfdge Kodiaks and Medicine Hat Antelopes. Kodiaks won 100-49 but there wasn't room for (he one and this is how it may have looked to some unsuspecting fan. See story page 10. Ealey unanimous choice on eastern all-stars MONTREAL back Chuck Ealey was named on all 30 ballots as Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats placed 10 men on the 1872 Eastern Football Confer- ence team announced Friday. Ealey was the only unani- mous choice this year although twn offensive teammates, who helped the Ticats nail down firsf place In the standings, were near unanimous. Running back Dave Bu- chanan, the East's leading ground gainer with yards, was just one vote shy and flan- SPORT 1975 iiiaiiiiiiiiiKiiSH No tomorrow for the loser HAMILTON (CP) Hamilton Tiger-Cats are favored to win Sunday's second hall of the Eastern Football Conference playoffs over Ottawa Rough Riders, but the oddsmakers fancy them by only nine points. Should that be right, Ham- ilton will win the battle, but Ot- tawa would win the war. The Rough Riders won the first half in Ottawa last week by 12 points, 19-7, so unless Hamilton can beat the book, they won't be playing In the Grey Cup against Saskatchewan Rough- riders at Ivor Wynne Stadium on Dec. 3. On the basis of regular-season play, the odds look good be- cause Hamilton lost only one home game, to Montreal. Addi- tionally, in three meetings with the Riders, the Ticats won all three. However, Hamilton was fa- vored in last week's game and were lucky to come out with just a 12-point deficit. "It would be tough enough if it was all said rookie quarterback Chuck Ealey. "But this just makes it tougher. We know it won't be any bed of roses, but we'll go out there and do the job." Ealey, a unanimous choice for the EFC all-star team, was controlled by Ottawa's defence last week, for the first time this year. And the Ticats know they have to protect him for the of- fence to be effective. They're confident they can do FO, but at least one Ollawa fan. Jiuss Jackson, n former quarterback with the Riders says Hamilton Isn't good enough. "I feel they'll have to score four touchdowns and I don't think they can against the Ot- tawa defence. Riders have never given away that many points all season." Another non-participant, Leo Cahill, recently-fired coach of Toronto Argonauts, says Ham- ilton can win because of the city's fans. "Hamilton can certainly come back on their own field. There is something about the city o! Hamilton and the way the fans rally behind the team that makes it special. You rarely find it in sport." The Ticats have praised Ot- tawa's defence all week and ad- mitted the Riders were the best team in the 19-7 win. However, a little acrimony has crept in during the last few days. Tiger-Cat coach Jerry Wil- liams intimated some Riders were frequently guilty of being offside, although it was rarely called. "Sometimes there wasn't enough room to get a helmet Between the said as- sistant coach Tom Mooney. lie was talking about Ot- .awa's defensive line not being a yard off the ball before the snap. When questioned about the charge, Ottawa coach Jack Gotta said: "Have you ever noticed Bruce Smith on your (Hamilton) .earn: He. should go back to the United States the way lie lines ip he's inside the yard all he lime.'1 AUTO BODYMEN WANTED VANCOUVER'S NEWEST, MOST MODERN BODY SHOP V IDEAL WORKING CONDITIONS V CHANCE OF ADVANCEMENT PAY RATE PER HR.

Salurdqy, Novtmbtr 35, 1972 THE LtTHMIDGE HERALD It Calhlic Central tops Cardslon Rams put it all together against Zeniths By LLOYD YAMAG1SIII Herald Sports Writer The smooth and sleek Cathol- ic Central Cougars and rough and tough Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams started their 1972-73 Southern Alberla "A" Boy's Basketball League sea- son on the right foot as they earned victories in their season openers Friday night. The Cougars coasted to an easy 53-30 decision over the visiting Cardston Cougars while the Rams butted their way to a 56-48 win over the Magrath Zeniths. At Caatholic Central High School last night, the Cougars Cardston's offen- sive attack at one end of the court while hitting the back- board freely at the other end. Cougars' veterans, Randy Royer and Peter Sikora, were ohviously the outstanding per- formers on either team as they dominated much of the play. Royer led the Cougar's at- tack with IB points while Sikora hooped 16. Guy Pomahac also chipped in with 10 points. Zealand Leavitt paced Card- slon with seven points while Jim Toone and Don Remington added six points apiece. The Cougars were never in trouble during the four quar- ters of play as they held leads of 15-8, 29-12 and 43-21. Meanwhile at LCI, the Rams built up a 13-6 lead after the first eight minutes of play and extended it to 28-18 to drop (he Zeniths in their season opener last night. The Zeniths, who captured their own invitational tourna- ment with three straight vic- tories last weekend, just couldn't muslcr up a powerful enough offensive or defensive attack to beat the host Rams. The Rams were by far the more aggressive ball club on the court and used their muscle and sharp passing plays to de- feat the Zeniths. Joey Shackletord supplied most of the strength for the Rams as he grabbed a number turn overs while netting 13 points. Kelly Strong was also instru- mental in the swishing 12 points while Curtis Klovan- sky added 10 points. John Balderson paced the Coaldale thumped by Bears KREMLIN, Mont. (Special) The Coaldale Kate Andrews Gaels were reeled to the conso- lation final in the Kremlin-Gil- ford invitational Basketball Tournament as they suffered a 71-36 Joss to Frazer Bears Fri- day night. The Bears were outstanding marksmen as they swished 32 field goals and added seven foul shot to thump the Gaels. Roger White paced the Bears with 24 points while Ed Dick led the Gaels with 12. Richard Boras also netted nine points in a losing cause. Coaldale will now meet Box Elder. Mont, in the consolation 'inal tonight. Box Elder dropped a 71-61 decision to the host K-G Coug- ars, who will face lire Bears in Hie championship final. The K-G Cougars will parti- cipate in the Leihhridgn Colle- giate Institute Invitational Bas- ketball Tournament next week- end. Zeniths with 1C points wliile Rick Ponomar replied with 15. The Raymond Comets also picked up a win in their league opener as they defeated the Mohawks 67-50 in Medicine Hat last night. The Comets, who led 36-27 at hall-time, received a 19-point performance from Walter Zo- boll and a 13-point outing from Tom Myndio. John Christensen managed 16 points in a losing cause. In "E" Boy's basketball league action last night, the Cardston Wildcats -dropped the CCHS Flyers 39-24. Rod Beazer notched 14 points and Larry Leavitt 13 for the winners while Steve Devclc hooped 10 for the losers. fn Medicine Hat, the Ray- mond Mustangs bested the Red Skins 47-28. Doug Fairbanks rimmed 17 points for the Mustangs. j SULLY SAYS 1 -By Pat Sullivan A BIT OF EVERYTHING Before I give Kinsmen Club Sportsman's Dinner chairman D w i g h t Jensen any gray hairs, and he could use some of any color, the 1973 dinner is Saturday, Feb. 3. .Buzz Dun- ning is a coach with a sense of humor His Guilford College team had just lost for the 23rd time in suc- cession When asked how the winners played he simply said "I would say they were overly aggres- sive at times, like between two and p.m." I like a guy who is honest Mike Luttrell, TCU half- set a passing record of seven completions in as many attempts. According to Luttrell his passes are so slow the defender overshoots the ball Stock car driver Wayne Shugarf was run off the track by fellow driver Frank Brantley recently and was most upset Shugart went to track steward Bob Smelzer and asked. it a ?100 fine for fighting in the When told yes, he simply reached into his pocket and !ook out ?100 and then ran into the pits and floored Brantley with a solid right on the chin. Have you ever heard of a coach being suspended because fans wouldn't let a penalized player to his dressing room? Well, it happened in the Southern Alberfa Juvenile League when Harrold Osmond of (.lie Lefhbridge Midget Elks and (he coach of Vaux hall, were handed two-game suspensions after a re- cent game in Vauxhall that was called with time left in the game because of unruly conduct by some fans League president Jim Hildenbrand handed tlie suspensions in a move that left both parties shocked, including your correspondent. .Hildenbrand is biting the hand that feeds if he thinks suspending coaches, who offer their time without reimbursement, is the source of trouble. .The referee's report from the game exonerated both coaches yet Hildenbrand de- cides the coaches should pay. .Not only that he has ordered them to stay away from the rink when (he club is playing. .Officials of both clubs indicate the last has not been heard on this item. The foundation of the World Hockey Association is showing more than just little cracks of late.

It figures, the Winnipeg Blue Bomber fans are hollering for Don Jonas' head after losing to Saskat- chewan last Sunday. .They seem to forget that Jonas completed 252 passes for yards during the sea- son. .He guided the Bombers to first place and sold plenty of tickets. .Now, however, the boo-birds want his head. .And I know a couple of Redman's, namely Bruce and Neal, who also would like words with Jonas and the Bombers. .Then there's Wayne Bowes making all kinds of noise in racquet ball 1 always thought a rackel ball was one you bounced up agamsl Hip Imusp when your dad was Irving lo the Miss Canada Pageant. .Oh. that's corny. .Well, I said it before and I think it is worth mentioning, Hamilton Tiger-Cats are going to win the Grey Cun.
