Game time is eight o'clock. After'an impressive 5-1 vic- tory over the defending Memorial Cup champion Regina Pats in the team's opening game of the season, the Broncos have fallen on hard times, losing their last three contests. With the return home to the Sportsplex, Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield hopes his hockey club will snap back to life. Mets get Joe Torre LOS ANGELES (AP New York Mets acquired veteran first baseman Joe Torre from St. Louis Car- dinals Sunday for pitchers Ray Sadecki and Tommy Moore in major league baseball's first key post- season trade. Torre, 34, batted .282 last season with 11 homers and 70 runs batted in for the Car- dinals. He was the National League's Most .Valuable Player in 1971 when he batted .363, hit 24 homers and drove in 137 runs. Torre broke into the majors as a catcher in 1961 with Mil- waukee Braves and remained with the Braves until March 1969 when he was traded to St. Louis for first baseman Orlando Cepeda. During his career Torre has been named to nine All-Star teams. He carried a .302 life- time batting average into the 1974 season and has a lifetime total of 240 homers. Sadecki, a 33-year-old left- hander used mainly in relief and as a spot starter in five seasons with the Mets, had an 8-8 record and a 3.41 earned run average last season. Umpires meeting A meeting for all members of the Softball Umpires Association is slated for Thursday night in the Gas Company auditorium. The meeting, which starts at 8 p.m., will review the events of the past season and choose the executive for the coming year. "We've just gone Ingarfield said. "Our goals against average is awful. You can't blame just one or two players, the whole team has been playing poorly. "Our defence has not been good, but it's not all their fault, the forwards are not coming back to help them." Ingarfield is looking for a fast, aggressive game from his charges tonight and ex- pects the big Victoria club to be throwing their weight around as well. Victoria is currently in third place in the West Division of the Western Canada Junior Hockey League. Among the returnees on the Cougar squad are Mel Bridgman and Peter Morris, who accounted for 50 goals between them last year for the West Coast team. Ingarfield is still undecided as to what players will sit out the game and which goalie he will have in the nets. "Our goal tending has been shaky, but we have a boy coining into camp in the next few days and we hope he can strengthen out net minding." One definite lineup change for the Broncos will be the omission of Dean Samis on the blueline. Samis will be out of action for a while with stretched ligaments in his ankle. Lethbridge players Brad Cox and Don Johnson were singled out for praise by coach' Ingarfield. "Johnson looked good in the Medicine Hat game. In fact he, Doug Gillespie and Darcy Regier have been our three best defencemen in the last few games. The Cox line also played well in the 'Hat, being about the only line that show- ed any aggressiveness." There are still a number of extra players in camp, and the Broncos are bringing in a few more boys to look at Very few players have secured positions on the team and Ingarfield promised that those who wanted to stay with the club were going to see some hard work. The Lethbridge hockey fans can bet their bottom dollar they'll see a more aggressive Bronco team hi action tonight The nervousness of the new Sportsplex ice should be gone, and the Broncos can turn all their attention to winning hockey games. There are still a few Bronco players without room and board facilities and the club asks that anyone interested in having a player in their home contact the club at 3294X04. vm ED FILAN for Lethbridge School Trustee Businessman and P.Eng. with 7 years teaching experience, grades V to XI, Edmonton Public Schools Lethbridge resident since T971 and father of 3 school aged children Will strive for businesslike manage- ment in our city educational system BACK ROW, LEFT TO RIGHT, DAVID BOBAK, ROD RIRIE, MIKE DUERDEN.

Churchill9s squad dominates By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Twenty-three Southern Alberta high school students took part in a cross- country run Saturday and when all the points were tabulated, Winston Churchill High'School won the grand aggregate team trophy. The Churchill squad had a total of 41 points, well ahead of Livingston High School in Lundbreck with 11 points. St. Mary's of Cardston was third over-all with nine points. The races were held at the University of Lethbridge. The U of L track served as the start and the finish of each race, and the runners wound through the large campus area on various courses. David Bobak of Winston Churchill took the boys' open run. He led throughout the grueling metre course and finished in 28 minutes 24 seconds. The gals' open winner was Silvana Sac- comani of Catholic Central. The women's course was metres in length and it took the winner 14 minutes and 19 seconds to complete it. Senior boys winner was Mike Duerden of Winston Churchill with a clocking of 16 minutes and 40 seconds over the metre distance. Evelyn Daw, also of Winston Churchill, took the metre senior girls title, with a seven minute six second run. The gals' junior honors went to Laurie Glen of Lundbreck, taking six minutes and 22 seconds on the metre course. Rod Ririe was the junior boys champion. The Magrath youngster toured the metre course in 16 minutes and 40 seconds. The races were run off smoothly with assistance from numerous teachers throughout the district and from George and Carol Gemer. The metres converted into miles shows the metre run is .93 miles, metres is 1.86 miles; metres is 2.5 miles .and metres is 3.75 miles. The event marked the first time a cross- country run was held under the direc- torship of the high schools in the area. The schools included all those sooth of Nanton to the American border and west of Taber to the B.C. boundary. A number of races were very com- petitive, in particular the boys open and the junior girls metres. The second and third place finishers in both events were only one second apart.
