Mondoy, October 1971 THE UTHBRIDGt HERALD 7 Locals hit win circle with weekend sweep Home crowd turns trick for Kings By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer Tho home surroundings were what the Lelhbridge Sugar Kings needed as they skated lo two Alberta Junior Hockey League victories over the week- end. Alter losing their first three games of the young season, the Sugar Kings nabbed a hard- fought 6-5 victory over the Red Deer Rustlers Saturday night and followed-up with a run- away 11-" win over the Drum- heller Falcons Sunday afternoon at the Adams Ice Centre. The two victories pushed the Sugar Kings into a fourth place tie with the Edmonton Movers who have played three more games than the local boys. In Sunday's roughly played contest, the Kings tallied three goals in the first two periods of play and rammed in five more in the final to win hands down. Seals earn first victory of season Finder pays dividends By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Gerry Finder has a habit of popping up, or off, in the most unusual manner. The 23-year-old Saskatoon na- tive was hardly a household word after three National Hockey League seasons until last April when he earned criti- cal acclaim for popping off at his coach. He alleged Billy Rea wasn't using him properly in the Chi- cago Black Hawk lineup, that he was being ignored. "The coach can ignore me all he wants; it's bush league. I Three clubs go on scoring spree The Coaldale Gpartans, Pic- ture Butte Elks and the Ray- omond Comets went on scoring sprees and literally wiped out their opposition in Western Eight Football League action over the weekend. The Spartans slaughtered the visiting Milk River Ridge Rid- ers 74-6, Elks trounced Nanton Knights 71-8 and the Comets walloped the St. Mary's War- riors 50-6. Richard Low, Ray Lister, Gerhard Schmold and Robert Chabay galloped for two touch- downs apiece to lead the Spar- tans powerful attack over the Ridge Riders. Brian King, Doug Lengyel and Don Quapp chipped in with one apiece while Quapp also added eight converts. Jim Graham managed the Ridge Riders only points with a touchdown. In Picture Butte, Glen Tan- ska rambled to four touch- downs giving the league-lead- ing Elks the easy victory over the Knights. Donovan Hattori aided with two majors while Miles Shaw, Kevin Gibb, Gary McElroy and Larry Cook helped with one touchdown each. Don Percival scored the lone Knight's n.ajor score. John Jasiukiewicz was the top Two top clubs suffer upsets By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Two members of The Asso- ciated Press Top Ten United States college football teams were upset Saturday. Southern California ended sixth-rated Notre Dame's un- beaten season for the second year in a row 28-14 and Wash- ington State nipped lOtli-ranked Stanford 24-23 on Don Sweet's 27-yard field goal as time ran out. Elsewhere, top-rated Ne- braska breezed by Oklahoma State 41-13, third-ranked Michi- gan trounced Minnesota 35-7, No. 4 Alabama held off Houston 34-20, fifth-ranked Aurburn whipped Clemson 35-13 and No. 8 Georgia trimmed Kentucky 34-0. Second-ranked Oklahoma wal- loped Kansas State 75-28, sev- enth-ranked Penn State beat Texas Christian 66-14 and ninth- ranked Arkansas defeated North Texas State 60-21. scorer for the Comets in their lop-sided victory over the War- riors. Jasiukiewicz blasted over the goal line four times for the Comets while Morris A n e c a chipped in with three touch- downs and two converts. Wallace Stone also added a touchdown. The Vulcan Cougars and the Cardston Cougars had the toughest game on the weekend, with the Vulcan squad picking up a hard-fought 13-6 victory. Warren Lebsack and Tom Ellis scored a touchdown each for the Vulcan while Delroy Walburger managed a major score for Cardston. In the final game staged over the weekend, the High River Mustangs easily handled the Claresholm Cobra's coining up with a 35-7 win. Hal Greer hot Cavaliers against By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS At 35, Hal Greer is considered old for a pro basketball player. Don't tell that to Cleveland Cavaliers. Philadelphia's aging back- court star appeared spry Sun- day night, pouring in 29 points and sparking the surprising 76ers to an 111-93 triumph over the Cavaliers. Greer, now in his 13th season in the National Basketball Asso- ciation, is only one of six play- ers in league history to score more than poults in his career. He started the season as No. 6 with points. The veteran guard hit four baskets in 314 minute span of the third quarter as the 76ers went on a 15-2 burst and took a commanding 70-54 lead over Cleveland. The victory boosted Philadel- phia's record to 6-1 ,tops in the Atlantic Division. Elsewhere in the NBA, Los Angeles Lakers downed winless Houston Rockets 113-103, Seattle SuperSom'cs whipped Cincinnati 119-101, and Chicago Bulls edged Phoenix Suns 105-104. In the American Basketball Association, it was: Utah 119, Pittsburgh 116; Kentucky 116 Floridians 110, and Memphis 111 New York 103. feel I can play Finder said at the time. The Hawks were in the midst of playoffs and, while the dis- pute was resolved to the point where Finder was back on the team, it was just a matter of time before he got his chance to "play somewhere." And when Chicago sent him to California Golden Seals earlier this season with goalie Gerry Desjardins in exchange for goalie Gary Smith, controversy followed. TRADE CALLED OFF The NHL ruled the trade void when it was learned one of the principals, Desjardins, had not fully recovered from a broken arm suffered in the latter part of the 1970-71 season and that those involved in the trade would not be able to work out with their respective teams until an amicable agreement was reached. The two teams finally settled their differences last week and Finder, true to his word, showed new boss Vic Stasiuk he can play hockey. The fiery 165-pounder scored three goals and assisted on two others by Ernie Hicke as the Seals scored their first win of the season Sunday night, 6-3, over Detroit Red Wings. The victory ended California's five-game losing string, after two ties to open the season, and were the first points for Stasiuk who took over the club 10 days ago. In other Sunday games, Pitts- burgh Penguins and New York Rangers tied 1-1, Boston Bruins edged Vancouver Canucks 4-3 in an afternoon game, St. Louis Blues downed Buffalo S'abres 3- 2, Philadelphia Flyers clipped Chicago 2-1 and Minnesota North Stars cruised 6-3 over Los Angeles Kings. In Saturday's action, Toronto Maple Leafs dropped the Flyers 5-3. Montreal Canadiens out- skated Los Angeles 3-1, New York took St. Louis 4-3, Minne- sota drubbed Buffalo 5-1 and Chicago beat Pittsburgh 5-2. BREAKS TIE Finder's first goal, at of the second period at Detroit with Wings' Al Karlander in the penalty box, broke a 2-2 tie. He added two more in the third along with Hicke's second be- fore the Wings could reply. Pittsburgh's Jean Pronovost and Vic Hadfield of the Rangers scored 32 seconds apart for the stalemate at New York, marred by an injury to Penguins' rookie goaltender, Jim Rutherford. Rutherford, who camo up through the Detroit farm sys- tem before moving to Pitts- burgh in the off-season, made a sparkling save on Rangers' Bill Fairbairn who had broken in alone. He apparently injured his right leg making the save and was carried off the ice on a stretcher. The Bruins needed a big ef- fort to overcome a 3-1 deficit at Vancouver. Centre Phil Espos- ito notched the winning goal to increase his NHL point-leading totals to 16. Rockabar, Jensen share southern rodeo honors By GARRY ALLISON Herald Staff TABEB A newcomer and a veteran carried off the ma- jor portion of the awards Sat- urday night at the Southern Al- berta Rodeo Circuit's 24th an- nual awards presentation ban- quet held in the Tabor Civic Centre.

Bert Gibb longtime secre- tary treasurer of the Southern Circuit, and former rodeo great Herman Linder were presented with plaques honoring them for their many years of fine ser- vice.

Wes Xieffle from Monitor, was presented the Canadian Western Natural Gas trophy saddle as the winner of (be sleer wrestling champion- ship. Pretty (Jcraldine Me- Laughlin received the barrel racing saddle donated by Ea- mor's Saddlery, High River. __ The winner of the calf roping title was current world leader in that event, Phil Lyne. Lyne is still competing in the U.S, and Arm'e Johnson accepted the saddle for Lyne from Gwin- ner's Rodeo Supply, Taber. Featured speaker at thu ban- quet was Warren Cooper, long lime voice of the Calgary Stampede. The veteran announ- cer entertained the crowd of 250 with stories from his early days in the sport and also spoke of the future in regards to ro- deo. The banquet was emcecd by Dick Gray.

Saturday night's encounter was of different flavor with the Rustlers and the Kings enter- taining the partisan crowd with fast action. A goal by McCrea at of the final period gave the Sugar Kings the close 6-5 vic- tory which revenged Iheir 11-6 loss to the defending champions in the season opener. The Kings built up a 3-0 lead at the end of the first period on two goals by Clark and one by Dodd. INCREASE LEAD They increased their lead to 4-0 in the second period on a goal by Neil Lyseng only to see Red Deer come back with three goals within seven minutes, two by Terry Willchen and one by Dale Bingham. Terry Tar- now increased the King's lead, but the Rustlers closed the gap 5-4 at of the second per- iod on a goal by Darryl Csal- lis. Red Deer tied the score at of the third period on a goal by Greg Scott. Goalkeepers Don Stephenson and Keith Delaney combined for 25 saves for Red Deer while Phil Wandler handled 32 shots for the Kings. Red Deer took eight of the 15 penalties, including a fighting major to each club. Meanwhile in Edmonton five goals in the third-period boost- ed Calgary Cougars to a 7-5 victory over Edmonton Maple Leafs Sunday.
