Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 25, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 13 Tackle Simon Fraser University tonight Pronghorns may find the going rough By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer If Robin Fry has been a lit- tle bit on edge this week, one can easily understand why. Fry takes a University of Lethbridge Pronghom team which features only three returnees up against one of the top college basketball clubs in the nation in a pair of exhibition contests tonight and Saturday in Trail, B.C. The Pronghorns, who finish- ed tied for fifth in the Canada West University Athletic Association with a 5-15 record last year, face the Simon Fraser University Clansmen in their first two exhibition contests of the 1974-75 season. The Clansmen, with their national recruiting and scholarship program, are ineligible for Canadian college competition, but are peren- nially one of the top two or three ballclubs in Canada. "We may be up against it this admits Fry "But our main objective is to let all the guys play and do a lot of experimentation." The U of L, with its tight budget situation, got a finan- cial break on these games when J. Lloyd Crowe Secon- dary School in Trail offered to pay all expenses for the two clubs. In return, the two teams will put on a basketball clinic for boys from Trail and the surrounding area on Satur- day afternoon. The Pronghorns, led this year by returnees Phil Letham, Lauren Edlund and Roger Baldry, have a number of other exhibition encounters lined up, and Lethbridge fans won't really see them in ac- tion until they open the CWUAA season at home against the UBC Thunderbirds November 15 and 16. However, local fans will get a sneak preview of the 1974-75 season on Tuesday when the Pronghorns play host to the U of L Alumni in an eight o'clock contest at the University gymnasium. Then the Pronghorns hit the road again for the Tri University Classic in Ed- monton November 1 and 2, with a pair of exhibition tilts in Regina set for the following weekend. Heading the list of returnees is Letham, a 6 ft. 3 in. guard who averaged 15.7 points per game last year, fourth best in the league, and made the CWUAA All Star team. At 6 ft. 5 in., Edlund is the club's big man, and he is real- ly coming into his own as he starts his third year with the club. He will be tested severe- ly on the boards this weekend against the much bigger Clansmen. Baldry, an LCI product, is coming off a knee operation and likely won't see much ac- tion until the regular season opens. He averaged 7.4 points last season, and Fry is hoping that the maturity of the 6 ft. 3 in. forward will steady the club's rookies. Another probable starter who will see little or no action this weekend is Gary Paynton, a 5 ft. 10 in. guard who comes to the Pronghorns from Mount Royal College in Calgary. Paynton injured an ankle earlier this week, but it is hoped that he will be ready for the Tri University Classic in Edmonton. Starting tonight on the front PHIL LETHAM LAUREN EDLUND ROGER BALDRY Piche surprises Victoria, Cents lose yet another By THE CANADIAN PRESS Rick Piche of Brandon Wheat Kings has acquired a reputation in the Western Canada Hockey League'as a hard-hitting defenceman but he hasn't been a major scor- ing threat But Thursday night the 19- year-old team captain, who got four goals in his first season with Brandon and none last year, beat Victoria Cougars' goaltender Bob Leslie twice as the Wheat Kings, playing on home ice. defeated the Cougars 8-7. In another game, centre Brian Shmyr scored two third- period goals to give New Westminster Bruins a 4-2 win over Calgary Centennials. Fred Berry and Kelly Secord got the other goals for tfie visiting Bruins. Ray Myer and Don Ashby replied for the Centennials, defending Western Division champions who have yet to win a game this season.

Calgary Attendance 3.294 Martin is top manager NEW YORK (AP) Billy Martin, who turned Texas Rangers from a loser into a winner in one year, was nam- ed the Associated Press' American League manager of the year Thursday. Martin, who drove a last- place team into pennant con- tention overnight, won a not race with Bill Virdon of New York Yankees. Sports writers and broad- casters gave Martin 195 votes to 183 for Virdon, who kept his Yankees alive in the East Division race until the end of the baseball season. Earl Weaver, manager of the East champion Baltimore Orioles, finished third in the voting with 15 while Alvin Dark of major league baseball's champion Oakland A's had 11 for fourth. Votes were taken before the playoffs. The rest of the field included. Ken Aspromonte of Cleveland Indians with three; Minnesota Twins' Frank Quilici, three; Darrell Johnson of Boston Red Sox with one and Ralph Houk of Detroit Tigers, one. Battling every inch of the way, Martin had his Rangers alive in the West until the last few days of the season. They Finished a second, five games behind the powerful A's. with an 84-76 record. 1974 CLEARANCE ON ALL NEW and RENTAL SKIPPERS ON RIGHT NOW Rolling along the Highway, on a bicycle built for two, was a way of life with Grandma, but is not the way for you.

Wolsey and Shackleford are familiar to Lethbridge fans, for their exploits with the LCC Kodiaks and the LCI Rams respectively. Coach Fry is expecting big things this year from Wolsey, whose deadly shooting and strength on the backboards will give opposing clubs lots of trouble. The steady play of Shackleford has to rank as the surprise of the Pronghom camp, and he should get con- siderable floor time throughout the season Foggo is new to the Lethbridge scene. He comes to the U of L from Bowness High School in Calgary and, although only 6 ft. 0 in. in height, his outstanding leaping ability gives Fry the option of playing him at forward or guard. The other five players on the squad, Brent Burton, Nar- cisse Blood, Tom Gruninger, Richard Chabot and Mike Day, are sure to get their share of action this weekend and, if this is a typical Robin Fry club, throughout the year. Last year's Pronghorns used a variety of full and half court presses and relied on the fast break at every oppor- tunity. "That type of run and gun game requires lots of hustle, and more than just seven Fry emphasizes. "The only problem is finding out just where everyone fits in he adds. And that is what the ex- hibition season is for." High school football The Catholic Central Cougars will be going after an undefeated season while the Winston Churchill Bulldogs hope to avoid the divisional cellar when the two meet in Southern Alberta High School Football League action at Henderson Park tonight. The Cougars have already clinched the West Division championship with a 5-0-1 season record, while the Bulldogs are in second spot with 3-2-1. However, the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams are only one point back with a 3-3 won-lost log, and a Ram win in Medicine Hat tonight coupl- ed with a Bulldog loss would drop Winston Churchill into last place. Kickoff time tonight is set for 8 p.m. Meanwhile, playoff action in the Foothills Football Conference continues this Saturday with only four teams left in the running for the league championship. The Cardston Cougars will be in Picture Butte to face the Elks in the East Division championship game, while High River Mustangs host Clareshobn Cobras to decide the West Division crown. The two victors will meet at a neutral site November 2 to decide the league champion. BOSTON BRUINS' WAYNE CASHMAN IS CLOSELY CHECKED- Vachon brilliant, Bruins tie again By THE CANADIAN PRESS If any doubts remained in Punch Imlach's mind about Rogatien Vachon, they should be gone now. It was Imlach who several years ago, when he was still coach of Torojito Maple Leafs, downgraded Vachon, then a member of Montreal Canadiens, calling him a Junior B-grade goalie And it was Imlach's Buffalo Sabres who bombarded Vachon with 55 shots Thurs- day night and still lost 7-2 against Vachon and Los Angeles Kings. In Thursday's only other NHL match, Boston Bruins tied St. Louis Blues 44. Don Kozak scored three goals and assisted on scores by Bob Berry and Yuha Widing to lead the Kings' scoring before a home crowd of Widing had two goals and Bob Nevin, 36, scored his sixth goal of the year. Gil Perreault, with his sev- enth goal of the season, and Jerry Korab scored for Buf- falo Gary Bromley faced only 16 shots in the first two periods in the Sabres goal but gave up five goals and was replaced by Rocky Farr who faced another 15 shots in the third period. Vachon, who now has given up only five goals in four games, faced 21 shots in each of the last two periods. The win moved Los Angeles into the lead in the Third Divi- sion, with 11 points out of eight games. At Boston, the Bruins earn- ed their second tie in as many nights by pulling the goalie in favor of an extra attacker in the last minute of play The Bruins now have only two wins and three ties in seven games. On Wednesday night, Boston outshot Pittsburgh 42-40 but had to rally a 5-5 tie. Tonight's schedule has Philadelphia at California, Minnesota at Atlanta and Kan- sas City at Vancouver. Minnesota Fighting Saints, a semi-finalist in last season's World Hockey Association playoffs, finally have reached the victory column after a couple of embarrassing losses. But it was a less-than- glorious 3-2 victory Thursday over Indianapolis Racers in a game that went right down to the wire. In Thursday's only other WHA game, San Diego Mari- ners beat Phoenix Roadrunners 2-1.
