Strong point of club should be goal, defence Bring in the beef motto Bronco backstoppers loaded with talent cry in National League By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Five out of eight have always been good odds, es- pecially if you are talking about experience. In this case five of eight are returnees to the Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League and all are defensive experts. When Earl Ingarfield, coach of the Broncos, and his club hit the ice Sunday evening against Regina Pats at the Sportsplex at seven there will be no less than five players who played last year with the Broncos. Ingarfield's defence and netminding are the strong points of his club. It can't be any other way In goal Lome Molleken and Bill Oleschuk are back from the 1973-74 edition of the Bron- cos while at the blueline Dean DICK ABEL No more 44 for Lakers LOS ANGELES (AP) Jerry West, Los Angeles Lakers superstar, announced his retirement as a player Thursday, saying he felt he no longer could play basketball the way he wanted to play the game. West's No. 44 jersey was re- tired along with the player who made it synonymous with basketball greatness. The 36-year-old 13-time all- star selection at guard said his decision was firm. "If you sacifice your stand- ards, you're not being honest with he added. West will continue with the Lakers organization but his duties have not been defined. He finished his career as the third highest regular season scorer in the National Basket- ball Association with 23.192 points, including the 1969-70 individual scoring cham- pionship when he averaged 31.2 a game. Samis, Ben Richardson and John Lutz all wore the green and gold last year. Add to these all stars Doug Gillespie and Darcy Regier and hardrock Don Johnson and you can see why Ingarfield is pleased with his backstoppers. Molleken, in all likelihood, will get the nod as starter in Sunday's game. His pre season play has been ex- cellent. The 18-year-old net- minder is 6'lVz" and likes to challenge his opponents. Molleken possesses a very quick glove hand and has shown in camp that he wants that number one job. Oleschuk, at 19, is in his draft year He has had a slow start thus far but Ingarfield feels he will come along just fine once the season gets un- der way. Oleschuk is 6'3" and weighs 205 pounds. Samis and Richardson have been named assistant captains of the club and both are big, bluelmers Samis, at 6'2V2" and 190 pounds, handles the puck well and is solid on his skates. He too has had a slow start but has been hampered somewhat by a sore back. Richardson, on the other hand, is not all that flashy, but he is consistently on top of the play. He can best be described as an excellent defensive defenceman. Richardson will see a lot of duty on the power play as he owns a good, hard shot. Lutz, stands an even six feet and weighs 182 pounds He saw part time duty with the Broncos last year. Lutz is versatile as he can play either the left or right side. Good on his skates, Lutz works hard at his position. Gillespie and Regier both were all stars in Tier 11 last year, Gillespie with the Red Deer Rustlers and Regier with the Prince Albert Raiders. Giilespie is a heady hockey player who seldom gives the puck away. Like Richardson he has a great shot from the point and is a hard worker. Regier is taller than the 5'10" Gillespie as he stands six feet. Gillespie outweighs Regier 190-180. An excellent puck carrier, Regier is very smart with the puck and should be a real asset to the team He plays it cagey. Johnson came to the Bron- cos camp with one thought in mind, make the club. Thus far he has achieved what he was after. He played last year with the Lethbridge Longhorns but had a weight problem that he has overcome. His coach says that no one works any harder than John- son. He wants to learn. At 6'3Mz" and 220 pounds Johnson likes the rough going. And who looks after all the players along with Ingarfield? Trainer Dick Abel. A jack of all trades when it comes to a hockey club Abel is just like an intern, he just doesn't have a certificate. But he can drive the team bus. Ingarfield is looking for a playoff berth for his club. He has the stoppers to do it for him. PROFIT Phone ROY MclNTOSH at 328-9271 Kino CHRYSLER DODGE LTD SrdAve.nnlliniSt.S.

McLean, traded to Brandon this year after four seasons with Calgary Centennials, scored two goals to lead the Wheat Kings to a 4-3 victory over Calgary.

Ralph Klassen and Stan Gulutzan paced the Blades with two goals each, and teammates Wes Peters and Ernie Federko rounded out the Saskatoon scoring. Mark Davidson got a pair of goals for the Bombers and the other Flin Flon goals were by Dan Kunlz. Louis Gardiner. Kelly Kehoe and Rick Gosselin. The Bombers, playing before fans, outshot the Blades 40-34 The game was the first of the season for both teams.

Davis was from Los Angeles Dodgers in the last off-season in a trade for Marshall, a relief pitching ace By GERALD ESKENAZI New York Times Service NEW YORK Jungle law will vie with written law this National Hockey League season that opens next Wednesday. The extraordinary success last season of history's most penalized team, the Philadelphia Flyers, has led most clubs to figure that's the way to win a Stanley Cup. More than one coach has spoken of "not being pushed around any more." And it has been evident in the training- camp season that an inor- dinate amount of attention has been paid to bringing in beefy players who enjoy battling. Yet, referees have been instructed to call a penalty that had been honored in the breach the instigator now will get more time m the box than the victim. Although the rule had been on the books, it had been largely ignored by timid referees who might have been afraid of offending the home crowd (players are always braver at home than on the road, especially Now the referees have been instructed in fact ordered to see that the man who throws the first punch receives a stiffer penalty than the players on the receiving end. It is estimated that 70 to 80 per cent of all fights, for ex- ample, have an instigator. Another rule has been put into the books to prevent penalized players from show- boating-, or to try to drag others along with them. Anyone who is "slow" in going to the penalty box will find that his team will receive a two-minute bench penalty. That means someone will have to come off his team's bench for the duration and his team will be further short- handed. To speed up the game, the league now forbids a goaltender from going to the bench for any reason. The old "hey, ref, can I tie my trick is gone. Once a goalie goes to the bench for even a minor repair he is out of the game. His substitute must then take over without benefit of a warm-up. The regular goalie can come back after the first play stoppage, however. Heins surprises himself LAS VEGAS. Nev. (AP) Rookie Bobby Heins surprised himself with a five-under-par 66 Thursday for a one-stroke lead in the Sahara in- vitational golf tournament. "I only hit three or four shots I was satisfied with, but every time I looked up the ball was going straight for the said Heins, who hasn't come close to making ex- penses and has survived the cut only five times in his brief career. Johnny Miller, winner of eight titles and a record 000 this season, was five strokes back with a par-71. Ben Kern of London. Ont., had a 71. George Knudson of Toronto shot a 72 and Bob Panasiuk of Windsor, Ont. fired a 75. J.C. Snead and journeyman Dave Eichelberger matched 67s trie 6.800-yard, Sahara- Nevada Country Club course to share second. Former champion Qii Chi Rodriguez. Mike Hill. Ken and John Schroeder were at b8 while defending title- holder .John MahaCfey was in a big bunch at 69 Tom Weiskopf, who was paired with Miller, managed a four-over-par 75. Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Lee Trevino are not competing "I've never been pumped up this much in my said Heins after breaking par in an opening round for the first time in his life. He made his big move with a burst that produced five bir- dies in seven holes beginning on the seventh, then faltered slightly coming home. The closer calls on fights and delays should help the fan. He may be eternally confused, however, on the new league set-up. No more, for example, are the proud Montreal Canadiens simply an east division team. They are in the James Norris division of the Prince of Wales Conference, to boot. Confusion still reigns even among players on the new playoff arrangement. It is simple, sort of. The top three teams in each of the four divisions are in the playoffs. Of these 12 teams, the divisional leaders draw first- round byes. The remaining eight clubs then are paired ac- cording to records the worst plays the best. After this opening round, the regular four-of-seven-game series start. The league has 18 teams with the addition of Washington and Kansas City. In two years it will have 20 and by the end of the decade there probably will be at least 26 clubs. Because the schedule has been increased to 80 games a club, the N.H.L. may find that its solid teams will start hav- ing empty seats. Such strongholds as Montreal and Toronto are feeling a financial pinch Because there are so many second-rate teams on the schedule, not every game is sold out. Once, people used to look over the obituary pages in Montreal to see if any season ticket-holders had died during the day. First place on the line Barring ties, two teams will take over undisputed posses- sion of their respective divisions following action this weekend in the Foothills Foot- ball Conference. Tonight, the East Division leadership is on the line as the Raymond Comets and the Pic- ture Butte Elks, tied with 3-1 records, meet in Raymond. On Sunday, the two un- defeated clubs in the West Division, the High River Mustangs and the Okotoks Ocelots, tangle in a crucial contest in Okotoks. In other action this weekend, St. Mary's is at Claresholm tonight, while Coaldale hosts Cardston and Nanton travels to Vulcan on Saturday.
