Phone 328-1101 Press cuts Dinosaurs down to size By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer As expected, the big guys did some damage, but a varie- ty of full and half court presses more than made up for that Friday night as the University of Lethbndge Pronghorns took a 96-82 deci- sion from the University of Calgary Dinosaurs in Canada West basketball play Calgary s 6'8" centre Lyle Leslie racked up 28 points, mostly on rebounds and easy inside chances, but the locals broke open a close game in the second half with their presses, to the delight of 300 spectators at the U of L gymnasium The Pronghorns led the see saw game 44-41 at halftime, but trailed 62-61 with 11 and a half minutes remaining However, a half court squeeze forced the Dinosaurs into five straight turnovers, and then Robin Fry sent his boys back into their 1-1-2 full- court press, and they never looked back Sparked by guards Richard Foggo and Joey Shackleford, and forward Curt Wolsey, the Pronghorns built up a ten point lead in just three minutes Then Phil Letham hit a 20 footer, stole the ball to drive in for a lay up and sank a pair of three throws to put the game on ice The Dinosaurs tried a full court press of their own in the late going, but the flawless ballhandling of Shackleford and Gary Paynton forced the visitors to foul, and the Pronghorns wound up scoring from the chanty line in the late going "We did not play well in the first said coach Robin Fry "But we made a few ad- justments on the press at half- time, and it worked much better in the second half All told, the Pronghorns forced 39 Calgary turnovers, while erring only 11 times themselves "Aside from the press, our guards beat theirs badly, and the forwards did a hell of a job on the boards The first half was a night- mare for both coaches, as neither club looked sharp The press gave the Dinos periodic trouble, but Fry's club could not capitalize on the errors to build up a lead Minor hockey Dave Anthony and Fred Abel shone Friday night in leading the Totems to an 8-0 triumph over the Bisons in Pee Wee hockey action Anthony notched four goals while Abel stopped everything the Bisons could fire at him during the game Brian Norhn added a pair of goals for the winners while Dale Norlin and Tom Wesely counted singles In other Pee Wee action, Alan Tajin and David Anderson scored two goals each to lift the Braves to a 4-2 win over the Pmtos Rick Balaz scored both goals for the losers Scott Maxwell scored twice to lead the DQ Jets to a 7-1 triumph over the Flames in Pee Wee hockev action How ic Heaton Rick Moser.

Pronghorns' top scorer with 24 points, was hitting on fall away jumpers and driving the middle effectively, and Shackleford's steady play was a bright light, but the rest of the club was having its problems However, in the second half, everything fell into place as Curt Wolsey came out of a minor slump to score 14 points Wolsey took advantage of Leslie's lack of mobility, and time and again drove all the way for the bucket Behind Foggo's 24 point performance last night was Phil Letham with 22, while Wolsey ended up with 20 Shackleford came up with by far his best performance of the season and wound up with 17 points For the Dinosaurs, Leslie had 28, while Pat Lee added 17 and Ian MacKay chipped in with 13 The Pronghorns shot 38% from the floor, led by Foggo's outstanding 62% norm, while Calgary connected on 40% of their attempts Evidence of the outstanding job the smaller Pronghorns did on the boards was the fact that the Dinosaurs out rebounded the locals only 48- 40 Leslie and Lee each grabbed 10 boards while 6'6" Tom Bishop brought down nine The Pronghorns were led by Wolsej and Letham, who pick- ed off nine apiece while Foggo added eight The two clubs will go at it again tonight at 8 30, follow- ing the women's game which starts at 6 30 p m In the women's game last night, the University of Lethbndge Pronghorns, sparked by Kathy Peacock and Georgma Lester, came up with their first win of the season by dumping the Calgary Dinmes 68-58 The locals broke open a tight game in the second half after trailing 33-31 at the half for the win With only ten minutes to go, the Pronghorns were down 48- 46, but two baskets each by Peacock and Debbie Yanota lifted them into a lead which they never relinquished Peacock finished with 21 points while Lester was close behind with 20 Yanota was third for the locals with 10 points and was the game's leading rebounder with 10 The Pronghorns out- reboundea the Dinnies 57 26 on the game Elsewhere in the Canada West University Athletic Association, Glenn Olsen scored 21 points to lead the University of Alberta Golden Bears to an 85 62 victory over Saskatchewan Huskies in Ed- monton Paul Jacoby was Saskatoon's leading scorer with 16 points University of Victoria Vikings defeated University of British Columbia Thunder- birds 43-35 in a low-scoring game Lee Edmondson, topped the UVIC scorers with 16 points

Thunderbirds with 11 Pettifer, however, lost the scoring lead to University of Lethbndge Pronghorns' Richard Foggo, who has 111 points In women's action, Saskatchewan Huskiettes edg- ed Alberta Pandas 52 49 and UBC Thunderettes took a 51-48 overtime win from the Vic- toria Vikettes HOOP SHOTS Lyle Leslie shot 747o from the floor, which is 14 percentage points better than Foggo, but the perfor- mance is not as impressive when you realize that many of the big kid's points came from right underneath Foggo's field goals all came on fall away jumpers or pretty drives Shackleford was simply brilliant last night he is always steady, but as is often the case, you tend to notice him more when he fires a few through the hoop it was good to see Wolsey break out of a little slump when he is right, it is tough to stop him, because he can hurt you in so many ways as for Letham, local fans are coming to take his steady shooting for granted he tends to go in bursts, and will often have a dry spell before suddenly erupting for six points in a minute the Pronghorns also got good mileage from Gary Paynton, who handles the ball as well as anyone in the league Southwest Conference opens
