Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield had promised an aggressive, fast-moving game against the visiting Victoria Cougars and that is what the fans at the Sportsplex saw. Until Tuesday's game the Sportsplex crowd at a Bronco hockey game could have been paralleled with a politely- appreciative ballet crowd. Not so Tuesday night. Lethbridgeites came to life as did the Broncos. Led by the inspiring goal tending of Lome Molleken, surely a welcome sight to coach Ingarfield's eyes, the Broncos put the body check into their game for the first time on local ice. They hit freely and cleanly throughout the game, causing Cougar players to hear "footsteps" on more than one occasion. The two clubs split eight fighting majors between them, six of which came in the space of 12 seconds in the third period. Despite the rash of majors in the third stanza, the game was free-wheeling and cleanly.played, with few cheap shots being taken by either squad. Ron Delorme started the ball rolling for the Broncos at of the opening period when he took a pass in his own end from Greg Woods and sped the entire length of the ice down right wing, blasting the puck past Cougar's Lloyd Saar. Nearly seven minutes later Cougars' Rick Lapointe let one go from the blueline and finally beat Molleken on the short side. Molleken had stopped Cougar's Steve Lee three times prior to the tying goal, twice on clean-cut breakaways. Broncos moved back into the lead early in the third period when Alex f idey drilled home a pass from Bryan Trottier from the corner. Trottier scored the goal of the night when he stole the puck in the Cougar end while killing a penalty to Bronco's John Lutz. Trottier dug the puck out of the corner, swung in front of the net and tucked it past a startled Saar to put the Broncos ahead 3-1. Two defensive lapses cost the Broncos the win. Curt Fraser, left standing well out in front of the net when a Bronco forward made a big sweep around him rather than checking him, scored Victoria's second goal. Greg Miazga was allowed to stand unmolested and unnotic- ed in front of the Bronco net, but Rick Lapointe spotted his open man and a split second later Miazga fired home the tying goal off the pin-point Lapointe pass. Both teams had opportunities to score in the final frame and secure a victory for their club, but it was the strong play of Molleken that stood out. He handled his fourth breakaway of the night when he stopped Rick Peter cold, and his big glove sent more than one Cougar back to the bench shaking his head. The Trottier-Sutter-Tidey line was once again the workhorse unit for the Broncos, but Ron Delorme moved into the spotlight as well, earning himself the third star of the game. Don Johnson played a tough game on defence for the locals and Don Eastcott showed flashes of brilliance throughout the contest. Molleken was chosen as the star of the game by Cleveland Crusader scout Les Cunningham, and Victoria's Rick Lapokite received the second star award. ICE CHIPS The three fights in 12 seconds left both penalty benches jammed Kim Clackson and Garth Morgan battled in the first one with Morgan getting the worst of the ex- change big Archie Henderson was on the ice four seconds in last night's game and righted the wrong done to Morgan Archie simply pounded Greg Miazga to a standstill... Cougars' Rick Martin made a mistake when he tangled with Don Johnson and has to thank his lucky stars that Johnson slipped at the start of the mix-up Kim Clackson almost wrapped it up for the Cougars when he hit a goal post in the third period... Trottier's misconduct penalty with five minutes left cost his club dearly.. just prior to the penalty he had missed a wide open net after being set up by Tidey... Johnson also got into a fight in the se- cond period and taught Gord Roberts what hockey fights are all about... the opening ceremonies of each game, with the three gals skating to centre ice with the Winter Games, Alberta and Canadian flags, adds a nice touch to the contests... Don East- cott, who also rattled one off the goal post, said after the game that the fans were just terrific and helped the Broncos get fired up. BRONCOS 3 VICTORIA 3 Fiwt period 1. Lethbridge.
