Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 4, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD A rivalry is reborn 1 have mentioned before that the Saturday night exhibition game between Lethbridge Broncos and Medicine Hat Tigers resembled a playoff game. It probably was more than that in the minds of the players. What fans, including a handful of Lethbridge sup- porters, saw in Medicine Hat was the start of an instant rivalry. Similar to the Calgary-Edmonton tussle in everything from politics to Pro Sports, it now appears that Medicine Hat and Lethbridge can once again go at each other in mad fashion. I know I don't stand alone when I recall the, what are they called the Good Old Days, early fifties. It would be about seven o'clock on a chilly fall evening and the train from Lethbridge would pull into the station on South Railway Street. A group of us young fellows, including Garry Syverson who refereed Saturday's game, would gather and watch all these people from Lethbridge make a fool of themselves getting off the train. Arms around each other's waist, they would form what was known as a congo line. Hollering 'LNS' the abbreviation of the then Lethbridge Native Sons between sips, they would dance their way down South Railway, through the underpass and out just beside the Assinaboia Hotel. Here they would lose a few stragglers who found the refreshments on the train lacking somewhat in punch. From the Assinaboia the line would head straight up third street, often disrupting traffic, and onto the old Medicine Hat Arena Gardens. The old gardens were a familiar place for Earl Ingarfield, now the coach of the Broncos, as he played there with the old Tigers and then with the Native Sons. It was a great rivalry. There was the odd pier sixer, but mostly it was a refreshing, intriguing affair. In those days the Native Sons held the upper hand. That is with the exception of one year when the Tigers swept the Native Sons four straight in a playoff series. Saturday's .crowd was a different one. It was more sophisticated due mainly to the fact that in Medicine Hat, hockey is in. If you have not taken in a game in Medicine Hat the past two or three years you have missed something. The new Arena Convention Centre is the hang out for the in crowd. If you don't go to hockey games in Medicine Hat, you're an outsider. It's as simple as that. You will see men in business suits, women in long gowns, teenagers in jeans and teeshirts, all kinds. This is what we hope will happen here in Lethbridge. We are about to be entertained by the best junior hockey in Canada. Let's just hope we appreciate it. There was only one sour point in Saturday's game and it was due, possibly, to the early time of the season. But you never see a referee in trying to break up a fight. Syverson did just that, or at least he tried to. He grabbed Broncos' Archie Henderson while Henderson and Bryan Max- well were set to do battle. Syverson did not jump into the fracas when Maxwell was easily handling Lethbridge rookie Alec Tidey. He had no business interferring with the Henderson-Maxwell bout. It was a good hockey scrap between two tough guys. The' thing that surprises me most about Henderson is the fact that I watched for this brute on more than one occasion to talk with him after a practice. He never came out. At least the same Archie Henderson who patrols right wing for the Broncos never showed himself. I would watch at the side of the rink for this 6'5" animal without front teeth. He managed to avoid me. However, I tracked him down one afternoon. There he was a freckled-faced young man who, with his teeth in, is the young man next door who is also a basketball star. I don't know Archie, you better quit taking that mean pill before games. Minor soccer awards The Lethbridge Minor in the St. Basil's church basement.

Tretyak's performance led the Soviet Union to a 5-2 .win Thursday over Team Canada 74, giving the Russians three wins, a defeat and two ties in their international hockey series. The sixth game was marred by two in the second period between Brace MacGregor of Canada and Valery Vasiliev and Rick Ley of Canada and Valery Kharlamov at the end of the game. Russian referee Viktor Dombrowski called a major penalty on each team for the first incident and no penalties for the second. MacGregor and Vasiliev were banished for fighting although MacGregor didn't drop his stick or gloves. Vasiliev landed three good punches on MacGregor's face. International rules state that the aggressor in a fight must receive a 10-minute penalty during which a team must play shorthanded. Team Canada players and officials generally felt the of- ficiating spoiled the game. "We know we get most of the penalties and the Russians get away with Ley said. Team Canada general manager Bill Hunter said the performance of Dombrowski proved that international officials must be improved. Canada served 33 minutes in penalties to nine for the Soviet Union. Bernier said Tretyak had more to do with Canada's de- feat than any penalty. Bernier was stopped on four good scoring chances. Boris. Mikhailov, Vyacheslav Anisin, Yuri Shatalov, Vasiliev and Kharlamov scored the Russian goals. Rejean Houle and Gordie Howe scored for Canada. The seventh and eighth games will be played Saturday and Sunday, both starting at 9 a.m. MDT. The Saturday game will be televised on CTV and Sunday's on CBC. It was Dombrowsky's decision not to hit Vasiliev with the heavy sentence that led to the Canadian discontent. "At least by getting somebody at the end of the game, I didn't hurt my said Ley. "Maybe it'll give us a bit of a lift for the next game." Fans in the Luzhniki Arena were chanting the Russian equivalent of "go home" as Ley pounded Kharlamov after the buzzer. "We can't go said MacGregor. "But Iwouldn't play a series like this again." .Russian coach Boris Kulagin said Ley is a "hooligan." Kulagin said a person like Ley is "persona non grata in our country." He told a news conference that in the Soviet Union players who engaged in violence after the game were sent to prison for 15 days. He said Ley should be sent to jail. Television viewers in the Soviet Union and eastern Europe saw only the beginning of the fracas. The Moscow television crew handling the game switched off the cameras and put on a poetry recital. Kharlamov left the ice bleeding from the mouth after Ley had punched him several times. While Ley was fighting with Kharlamov, defenceman Paul Shmyr of Canada was throwing punches at Mikhailov. Vasiliev's goal at of the first period came with Marty Howe in the penalty box and put Russia ahead 2-0. Mikhailov had taken only 34 seconds to open scoring. It appeared a rout was possible until Houle deflected a Shmyr shot past Tretyak. In the second period, Gordie Howe and son Mark combined for Gordie's goal at to even the score. It was followed at by Anisin's goal. Then came the MacGregor-Vasiliev incident, and Shavalov scored while Canada was one man short. In the third period, Kharlamov slipped a puck between goalie Garry Cheevers' lep. In all, Canada served two 10-minute misconducts to Marty Howe and Marc with MacGregor's major and four minors. Alexander Yakushev played sporadically for the Russians and appeared to be favoring his knee. Alexander Maltsev left the game in the first period after Houle land- ed a rugged check but no word was received on whether the veteran would play again. Race results Records mean nothing in five-game series Pirates not afraid of Dodgers PITTSBURGH (AP) Slugger Bob Robertson of Pittsburgh Pirates isn't worried about Los Angeles Dodgers. "The writers are going-to look at Los Angeles' record and our record and say we don't have a he said as the Pirates prepared for the opening game of the National League baseball playoff here Saturday. "We beat them here and we beat them out there (Los Angeles) during the year. In a five-game series, it's a dog- eat-dog situation." The record shows the Dodgers with 102 wins and 60 best in baseball this in the tough West Division. The Pirates were 88-74 the A's go into their juggling act, Orioles are baseball's hottest lowest total of victories by any first-place in the East where only one other team finished above .500. In the regular season, the Pirates were 84 against the Dodgers, sweeping all six games in Pittsburgh and going 2-4 in Los Angeles. Against all clubs in the Western Division, Pittsburgh was 44-28 com- pared with a 44-46 mark in the East But there are some other numbers floating around that favor the Dodgers, take OAKLAND (AP) It's playoff time-Oakland A's are juggling second basemen. Green will start at sec- ond in the best-of-five American League baseball playoff, which opens here Saturday, against Baltimore Orioles. Manny Trillo is the backup man because of Ted Kubiak's ankle injury. At some other positions, Oakland manager Alvin Dark isn't sure how to handle them. "We have problems, like whether Reggie Jackson can play in the Dark said. Right-fielder Jackson, the A's leading home ran hitter and the league's most valuable player hi 1973, pulled a hamstring muscle Sept. 22 and didn't play in the field (hiring the final 10 days of the regular season. "I probably could have come back last weekend, but they wanted to make sure I was ready for the said Jackson, who took part in a special batting practice ses- sion Thursday with most of the other regulars. Dark would like Ray Fosse to start as catcher for defen- sive purposes, but the .196 hitter may be replaced by power-hitting Gene Tenace, the regular first baseman. Hie move would start a chain reaction, with Joe Rudi mov- ing from left field to first The A's and Orioles both had workouts scheduled this afternoon at the Oakland Coliseum, where about fans are expected Saturday to watch Jim Hunter, 25-12, pitch against the Orioles' Mike Cudlar, 22-10, in the opener. Oakland, en route to a se- cond straight major league championship, advanced to the World Series by beating the Orioles in five games last season. "I figure tins year's series win be just like last year's, very tight and probably down to the last said Oakland third baseman Sal Bando, who drove in 103 runs this season. The A's beat the Orioles last year despite a .200 team batting average in the playoff. Their victories were by scores of and 3-0, with Hunter pitching a shutout in the final game. Oakland went into last year's playoff and World Series with only 24 men available because the A's were not allowed to make Trillo a last-minute re- placement for injured centre fielder Bill North. Owner Charles Finley de- clared utility second baseman Mike Andrews injured during the World Series, arranging a physical examination after Andrews made two errors in a toss to New York Mete, and tried again to place Trillo on the roster. Commissioner Bowie Kuhn turned down the request and ordered Finley to reinstate Andrews. The Andrews' incident played a major part hi Dick Williams' decision to resign as manager, and Andrews was released by the team. Those are the won-lost records of Don Sutton and Andy Messersmith who will be starting the first two games for Los Angeles. Toss in their earned-rnn averages of 3.22 for Sutton and 2.S9 for Messersmith, then stack them up against their opponents on the mound. Jerry Reuss, who had more triumphs than anyone on the Pirate staff with a 16-11 record, will carry a 3.50 average into the opening game. Jim Rooker, 15-11 and 2.77, pitches Sunday for Pitt- sburgh. Messersmith strnck'out 221 batters, second hi the league, while Rooker ted the Pirate staff with 139. Sutton was 1-2 and Messersmith l-l against the Pirates. Reuss was 2-1 and Rooker 1-1 against Los Angeles. Los Angeles got of f to the best start hi the major and was able to coast through a late charge by Cincinnati Reds.

Gordon Juckes, executive manager of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, said the ultimate indignity was the Soviets forc- ing team owners and members of the official party from Canada to sit in poor seats. At a hastily called news con- ference, Canadian officials said they didn't consider pull- ing the team out of the series but chose this method to make sure the Russians know "we didn't get the special treat- ment they promised us." There were reports, too, that Team Canada players and fans were not happy with their accommodations, some mov- ing several times before they were satisfied. Gordie Howe, the 46-year- old elder statesman for Team Canada, was upset by the ap- parent bugging devices in his room and is reported to have found suitable living con- ditions only Thursday mor- ning. Juckes said the three-hour delay at the airport when Team Canada arrived Monday from Helsinki was followed by poor accommodation, poor seats for the opening game and a general indifference to the needs of Canadians., After the first game here Tuesday, Canadians protested to Soviet officials but the Rus- sian action to improve the situation was not satisfactory. The Canadians said that ev- ery Soviet ticket request dur- ing the first four games of the eight-game series in Canada was met.
