CONTACT ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL ________________ PHONE Herald Sports Former Czech coach agrees with Canadians Kostka felt officiating poor PRAGUE (CP) Former coach Viktor Kostka of the Czechoslovak national team said Monday night the Czech Ice Hockey Federation has been struggling for years to have the level of international officiating improved. Kostka said in an interview at a reception for the Cana- dian delegation that of- ficiating throughout the Canada-Russia series was inadequate. Canada 74, the World Association selection which completed its eight- game series against the Soviet Penalty shots important, Bruins bounce Rangers THE CANADIAN PRESS Penalty shots and overtime were featured in two come- from-behind victories in ma- jor league exhibition hockey Monday night. In the final National Hockey League pre-season match, a penalty-shot goal by Bobby Schmautz in the second period helped Boston Bruins to a 7-4 victory over New York Rangers at Boston. In a World Hockey Associ- ation match, Minnesota Fight- ing Saints beat Houston Aeros 6-5 on George Morrison's overtime goal.

(AP) Detroit Wheels and Jacksonville Sharks will fold within three days unless new investors are found, the World Football League announced Monday. The Wheels and Sharks games this week were wiped off the schedule. Florida -Blazers, who were to play Detroit on Thursday, and Chicago Fire, scheduled against Jacksonville, will play each other instead at Chicago under the revised, schedule released by WFL president Gary Davidson. Don Andersen, a WFL vice- president, said: "No exact hour has been set as a deadline but new financing probably will have to be done in the next two or three days to keep the clubs operative this year." Andersen said the cost of op- erating the Detroit and Jack- sonville teams is about 000 each for the balance of the season, which would cost the first-year league million. It also operates the Florida Blazers franchise.

Plram 327-8889 ton goals. Pete Stemkowski, Jerry Butler, Rod Selling and Rick Middleton shared New York's goals. The Rangers took a 2-0 lead on a goal by Stemkowski in the first period and Butler's goal early in the second. An unsuccessful penalty shot attempt by the Ranger's Ted Irvine at of the se- cond period was followed by three Boston goals. Sheppard cut the deficit to 2- 1, then Schmautz was award- ed a penalty shot when he was tripped by defenceman Gilles Marotte on a breakaway. Schmautz beat goalie Gilles Villemure to tie the score. Savard put the Bruins ahead to stay. Morrison scored with 30 sec- onds remaining in sudden death overtime in the match between last season's WHA finalists at St. Paul, Minn. Houston had led 5-3 with three minutes to play in regulation time, but Don Tan- nahill scored by banging in a Ted Hampson pass at and at Minnesota defenceman Terry Ball took Morrison's pass and hit the lower right of the net, past Houston goalie Wayne Rutledge. Scoring for Houston were Andre Hinse, Frank Hughes, Paul Popiel, Gord Labossiere and rookie Terry Ruskowski. Scoring earlier goals for the Saints were Ted Hampson, Kevin O'Shea, and John-Ar- bour.

St. Mary's bus overturns Odney stars for Stamps Only one of the scheduled games in the Lethbridge Minor Football League was played Monday night at Henderson Stadium due to a traffic accident involving the Cardston St. Mary's Warriors. The game scheduled between the Warriors and the Catholic Central Bombers had to be postponed when the St. Mary's bus overturned on the way into Lethbridge. In the game that was played the Hamilton Stampeders scored a come from behind 35-13 victory over the Wilson Junior High Lions. The Lions were leading the Stampeders at half time 13-6 on touchdowns by Brian Gerbracht and an 80 yard run by Dave Rae. Frank Kogler added a convert to bring the Lion total to 13. Bob Odney scored the lone Stampeder major in the first half. The second half was a different story for the Stampeders. Odney contributed two more touchdowns, giving him three for the night, and Mike Coghlin and Will McMillan also added ma- jors. Not content with his three majors Odney also booted two singles, one convert and ran into the endzone for a two point convert. Many of the St. Mary's players were brought in to St. Michael's Hospital in Lethbridge for treatment after their ac- cident. With one exception, the injuries consisted ef sprains and bruises and all the boys were released after treatment. The only St. Mary's Warrior player detained over night in the hospital for observation was Frank Smallface. Minor Football League official Lew Kennedy said the St. Mary's Bombers game will be postponed for the time being, until a meeting with league officials decides what to do about the missed contest. Calgary pair wins Auc-Skok-Skasi is over and Tom Cook and Ian Robertson are the winners. Auc-Skok-Skasi? That's the Blackfoot name for the Lethbridge Sports Car Club's rally held this past weekend. The name means Running Back. Old man winter interfered with some of the plans for the rally and instead of the ex- pected 19 cars only seven took part The heavy snow in many areas of Alberta prevented many of the teams from reaching Lethbridge to com- pete in the sanctioned rally. Cook drove the winning Datsun 1200 and Robertson was the navigator for the Calgary team. The pair completed the skill testing course, computed to take 6.5 hours, in only 13 minutes and four tenths of a second over the computed time. The Lethbridge team of Phil Wakelen at the wheel and Russ Wilton doing the navigating placed second. They were 15 minutes and 49 seconds over the time. The pair would have won hands down in their Mazda R100 except for one wrong turn that cost them 11 minutes of precious time. Third place in the Saturday night and early Sunday morn- ing run went to another Calgary team. Brian Flewwdling driving and Boris Ganchen drove a Dodge home 30 minutes and 43 seconds overdue. Tffwn Ccmrtry Misic NOW ON THE AIR SPORTS NEWS Union on Sunday, arrived here by chartered aircraft Monday. The Canadians face the Czech national team tonight before returning home. The Soviets won fpur games, lost one and three were tied in the series marred by poor officiating in most games. "The Polish (Roguld Szcza- pak) and the West German (Josef Kompalla) officials are second-rate, even by Euro- pean said Kostka, who coached the Czechs for many years before retiring in 1973. He also objected to the use of a Canadian, Tom Brown of Toronto, and a Russian, Vic- tor Dombrowski, in such a vital competition. "Officials from the United States, Czechoslovakia and Sweden should be he said. "There the hockey is of good calibre and the officials have a chance to work in games of top teams." Journalists here reacted strongly to an announcement Monday that Vaclav Nedomansky and Richard Farda have gone to Canada. The announcement that the Czechs have joined Toronto Toros of the World Hockey As- sociation was made in Toronto in July. One reporter said Nedomansky was over-rated and that pressure had been ap- plied to have him dropped from the Czech national squad. The announcement here of the defection was accom- panied by a front-page editorial condemning North American teams for luring top Europeans away from their homes. The editorial also said Nedomansky had accepted a large salary and short-term benefits over the security of a liftime here. The Canadians, preparing for their 16th game since the opening of training camp Sept. 1, said they are much more re- laxed now that the Soviet series has ended. A telegram from Prime Minister Trudeau congratulating the team was read by Ambassador Pierre Dumas. "The Russians are too good to do some of the things they said Mark Howe, 19, brilliant left winger who was in his second international competition. He was upset by the Russian announcement before the final game that the contest would be ended if the Canadians got too rough. Mark, who played with the United States as a 16-year-old in the 1972 Olympics, said telephone calls in the middle of the night were a problem for some players. Others received wakeup calls too late to prepare properly for games. "They don't have to pull that said Howe, who teamed with his father, Gor- die. and centre Ralph Backstrom to form Canada's top line in the games for Moscow. Despite Canada's loss to Russia, applications have been received for the ex- hibition tonight, which will be played in a building. The Czechs said they would like to meet Canada in a series similar to the one just com- pleted, rather than in one exhibition game every few years. Basketball meeting The Southern Alberta Chinook Basketball League has scheduled a league meeting for Wednesday at p.m. at in Lethbridge Any team wishing to par- ticipate in the league must be represented at the meeting and have a performance bond of It is hoped the league will consist of eight or nine teams and anyone in Southern Alberta interested in entering a team is invited to the meeting. SHOWS WINNING FORM Gordon Keith tops high school golf Gordon Keith of Catholic Central High School in Lethbridge was the winner of the first annual South Western High School Boys' Golf Tour- nament held in Magrath. Inclement weather postpon- ed the second day of the com- petition, which was slated to be a 36 hole affair. The event was originally scheduled to run Friday and Saturday but organizers decided to make it an 18 hole test on Friday only. Randy Jensen of Cardston topped the first flight with a score of 92.

NEW YORK (AP) Tyger Trimiar, a trim 130-pounder, and Jackie Tonawanda, a solid 170, applied Monday for professional boxing licences at the New York State Athletic Commission. The Tyger is 21-year-old Marian Tyger Trimiar and Jackie is 26-year-old Jac- queline they are attempting to become the first women professional fighters. Both work out regularly and have boxed exhibitions but never an actual fight "I think other girls will app- ly if we get our said Miss Tonawanda, who says she doesn't want expect fight against men.

There were 21 entrants in the tournament from the South Western region, which includes all schools south of Nanton to the United States border and west of Taber to the Saskatchewan border. Keith's championship round of 79 was remarkable when the frigid weather conditions are taken into account. The team trophy, which went to the team with the best score posted by their school's three lowest golfers, was taken by Magrath High School with a 260 total. A spring tournament is planned for the high schoolers in May. Details will be an- nounced closer to the date. Following are the winners in the various categories: CHAMPIONSHIP FLIGHT 1. Gordon Keith.
