Cuts to 2V at 90" at TlB EACH Four hours settle little Longhorns may have won By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor They cyme, they saw. but wort- they impressed? The Lethbridge Longhorns opened their home half of the 1973-74 Alberta Junior Hockey League season Tuesday night before a packed house of 1.100 fans at Henderson Lake Ice (lent re. However, the opening night crowd did not ask lor any cur- tain calls after the four-hour fiasco ended at midnight. John Chapman's Pass Red Devils, who trimmed the Longhorns 4-1 Sunday night, provided the opposition and took a 4-3 overtime decision. Hut they may lose it in the committee rooms today. Longhorns. 'before all the unnecessary bush league play developed, scored at the mark of the first period to draw even with the Devils. The goal, scored by Bruce Small, was disallowed when it was discovered Doug Hougen's name had been orn- mitted from the scoresheet. What was to take place after, however, far but- shadowed the fuss raised by the locals when the marker was stricken from the records. League president Jim Scoular was in the crowd Tuesday night. He only wishes the disallowed goal was his only headache today. Such is not the case. A cheap shot by Red Devils" Tim O'Donnell. when he high slicked Longhorn goalie Larry Wanagas at the mark of the first period, opened the flood gates that finally subsid- ed four hours later and after 50 penalties had been called. Included in the 50 infrac- tions were 11 game miscon- ducts, five 10- minute miscon- ducts, eight majors and some 2li minor infractions. Longhorns lost the services ot Bruce Small for his part in the- O'Donnell mess ;Uter he flattened the Red Devil player and then decisioned Brad Can- field who also got an early ex- it.. Seven more players got the gate during a pier-six affair in tin- third period. This time the trouble started when Don Rentier of the Longhorns. without reason, dropped Pass goalie Mike McCollam with a high- stick. This time all the players on the ice. with the exception of Rentier and McCollam. were banished. Also taking an early shower was Don Johnson who left the Lethbridge .bench to help Renner who was being pounded by Wayne Turner and Lyle Murray. Johnson quickly settled that issue by hauling Turner off and cold-cocking Murray. With both benches depleted in ranks Brent McCracken of the Pass put on a real show as ho took two cheap minors, two 10-minute misconducts and a game misconduct. When hockey was being played, and it was a good, last brand of hockey when dis- played. Randy Sparks sent the visitors home happy with just seconds gone in sudden- el ea t h o ve rt i m e as he deflected a shot from the point by Bill Kelts. Other Pass m a r k e r s c a m e fro in O'Donnell. McCracken and Kelts. Bernie Syrenne. the best man on the ice for either club. tallied twice for the Longhorns. Tin1 first-year player, up Irom the midget ranks, missed a golden oppor- tunity late in tho third period put the game1 away for the Longhorns as his shot just nicked the outside of the post and went astray. Ron Weiland added a solo marker. D r u mh e 11 e r Falcons dumped Calgary Canucks 8-4 in a free-wheeling, penalty- studded game Tuesday night. Grant Pushie's two goals helped the Falcons open the season on a winning note before about 800 fans. Roger Mitchell. Cam Christenson. Dennis Green. Dennis Wallis. Garth Morgan and Gary Bembridge had single goals for Drumheller. The Canucks, who trailed 2- 1 after the first period and 3-2 after the second, got goals from Russ Hall. Gerry Banks. Ivan Mclvor and Dave Scott. Each club served 13 penalties, with Calgary taking two fighting majors to Drum heller's one. The Falcons also were assessed a 10-minute misconduct sentence. LOOSE PUCKS-Both coaches. Stan Maxwell of the Longhorns and John Chapman of the Pass were irate at the officiating Tuesday night Both agreed it left a great deal to be desired Four hour hockey games will hurt the fan support you can bet on that Longhorn goalie Larry Wanagas was brilliant nn numerous occassions and had no chance at all on the winning goal Jim Scoular will have his hands full sorting out the penalty mess Fines and suspensions have to come Irom Tuesday's affair llogwash such as that is not needed Bugner retains title Herald- Sports LONDON Big Jot Bugner of Britain retained his European heavyweight boxing litle Tuesday night, out- pniniing chunky Bepi Ros of Italy in a gruelling 15-round light at Royal Albert Hall. The six-foot-four Bugner weighed 220 pounds. Ros five- loot-nine, weighted 237 pounds. Despite his seven-inch height advantage. Bugner had a difficult time against the un- rated Italian. Ros. a 31-year-old bartender Irom Trevisi. took a lot of pun- ishment but kept boring in. For his bulkiness he showed surprising speed, and his ex- perience, gained in a pro career dating back to- proved invaluable. He repeatedly tied up the over-eager Bugner. who had looked impressive in losing fighs against former world champions Muhammad Ali and Joe within the last year. Ros plodded in bravely and as early as the opening round, he caught Bugner against the ropes, but the Hungarian-born European champion con- tinually outscnred him with long, raking lefts.
