Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Exposito off to best season ever MONTREAL (CP) Despite off-season knee sur- gery that many hockey obseivers thought would slow him down centre Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins to- day is off to his best-ever start in the National Hockey League scoring race Esposito has scored 13 goals in Boston's first nine games, and while he led the league in goals last season with 55, he had scored only four in an equal number of games one year ago In the 1971-72 campaign Esposito had seven goals after nine games and led at the end of the season with 66 Three seasons ago when he set an all-time record by scoring 76 times, Esposito had only seven goals at this point in the season and didn't score his 13th goal until his 17th game City champs The 1973 City Women's Dart League wrapped up Monday evening at the Elks Club Top honors went to the team of, left to right, Fern Field, Carol Gangur and Betty Fourmer of the Miners' Library Also honored was Phyllis Spence who had a perfect 180 game Stamps scare Bombers The Bombers advanced to the Lethbridge Minor Football League championship finals Monday night by edging the Stampeders 26-25 in one of the most thrilling games staged ever at Henderson Stadium The Bombers, who finished the season tied in first place with the Lions were expected Marshall declines cheque MONTREAL (CP) There s a 000 cheque floating in iimbc today because of the single- mmdedness of Mike Marshall, Montreal Expos ace relief pitcher Marshall selected as Expos plajer-of-the-year by the Montreal chapter of the Baseball Writers of America, was on hand Sunday night to accept the award and the 000 cheque But Marshall, a native of East Lansing Mich threw a oatented screwball at the 600 members 01 the Club des Amis du Baseball when he refused to accept the cheque from Georges Labrecque, president of O'Keefe Brewery Ltd and Ian MacDonald of The Gazette chapter chairman of the BBWA Marsnall posed for pictures with a giant-size replica of the cheque and thanked the assembly But then the script went awry "I m unable to accept Marshall said of the cheque 'I never accept being in com- petition with my teammates for money A brewery official remained puzzled today as to the final disposition of the cheque to win the sudden-death semi- final hands-down, but the third place Stamps had different thoughts last night The Stamps gave the Bombers their biggest scare of the season as they quickly went to work and built up a solid 21-7 halftime lead Realizing the threat of fac- ing elimination, the Bombers battled back ferociously and managed to cut the deficit to 25-20 by the end of the third quarter of play Bombers finally took the lead early in the fourth stanza and held the Stamps to a stand still for the remainder of the game for the victory Earl Ingarfield was brilliant for the Bombers as he galloped to three touchdowns while adding a 40-yard single and a convert His touchdown runs measure 10, 70 and 20 yards Dominic Santangelo also chipped in with a 20-yard ma- jor for the winners On the other hand, Stampeders' rookie Glen Lef- fmgwell was also a standout in a losing cause as he booted a pair of 60-yard singles, a 25- yard field goal, two converts and a touchdown The two 60- yard singles are unbelievable for a youngster in the minor football ranks Teammate Tim Ross was also a key figure for the Stamps' fine showing as he scrambled to major scores from 70 and 40 yards out The Bombers will now ad- vance to the sudden-death final against the Lions who were awarded a bye into the finals due to their pomts-for- and-agamst record The final is set to go at seven o'clock Thursday night at Henderson Stadium Meanwhile the LMFL year end banquet will be staged Nov 9 at the Civic Sports Centre Parents will be charged 50 a plate while players will be admitted free of charge DUNLOP FORD'S Exhibition Pavilion November 6th to 10th If the rangy native of Sault Ste Mane, Ont, continues at his current pace for the re- mainder of the season he would finish up with 113 goals But Esposito won't get a chance to improve his position tonight as only three games are scheduled In the three, Detroit Red Wings visit Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers travel to Van- couver to face the Canucks, and Los Angeles Kings are at St Louis against the Blues Goal-getting is not the only prowess displayed by Esposito No team Boston has faced in its nine games thus far has been able to keep him off the score sheet In only two of the nine games was Esposito limited to one scoring point In each of the other seven he managed two or more points As a result of his scoring feats, Esposito leads the cur- rent scoring race with 22 five-point edge over his nearest rival, line-mate Ken Hodge, who has 17 Sharing third place are Richard Martin of Buffalo Sabres and defenceman Bobby Orr of the Bruins, both with 16 points Orr leads the league in assists with 12 Right winger Yvan Cour- noyer of Montreal Canadiens is alone in fifth spot with 15 points Cournoyer is runner-up to Esposito in the goal-scoring department with nine Bernie Parent of Philadelphia Flyers continues his stellar work in the nets and leads all other goaltenders despite the fact he has played in all nine games his club has contested Parent has a 144 goals- agamst average and has shut out the opposition three times He needs one more shutout to equal his previous high of four recorded with the flyers in their initial SCORING GP G A Pts Esposito Hodge Martin Orr Cournoyer Lemaire Boudnas Redmond Bucyk Cashman Robert Goldsworthy Libett Ullman Polis Lawson top WHA scorer SANTA ANA, Calif (CP) Things were beginning to look a lot like last season in the statistical leader department as the World Hockey Associa- tion rounded out another week of hockey activity Danny Lawson was leading the league in the goal-scoring department with 11 Last season Lawson was the pacesetter with 61 He had his first three-goal performance of the season Sunday in Ed- monton, despite his teams' 7-5 loss to the Oilers Last season Lawson led the WHA in three- goal nights with six Cleveland Crusaders' Gerry Cheevers and Bob Whidden are co-leaders in the goaltending department The stingy twosome had a combin- ed goals-against average of just 214 In the assists column J C Tremblay of Quebec Nordi- ques paced the league last year with 75 This season he has seven to his credit, the league leaders have eight Last year John Schella was the penalty leader, but he is far down the list this season with only 14 minutes The current leaders are both from Los Angeles Sharks, Steve Sutherland with 56 and Ted McCaskill with 49 Hold if, she's on my team It will be a family affair at the Lethbridge

the selection is made by a screening committee headed by owner Nick Mileti of Cleveland Crusaders Davidson denied his depar- ture was forced by some WHA owners unhappy by his dual role It was my idea to resign, he said I had planned to re sign at the end of my contract in May but with my full in- volvement in the World Foot- ball League and the desire to help select the new president I asked my resignation be ac cepted as soon as possible It would be awkward to list any top candidates at this time Davidson said in- dicating he still is running the WHA show by announcing an executive committee revision and appointing the four-man screening committee Bill Hunter of Edmonton Oilers and Howard Baldwin of New England Whalers were added to increase to six mem- bers the executive committee, with Jordan Kaiser of Chicago Cougars named chairman Davidson said James Browitt would remain the administrator "with broader authority It earlier was reported that Browitt, Hunter Baldwin and Kaiser were prime candidates for Davidson s post Following Davidson s resignation announcement at a news conference, both Hunter and Kaiser expressed regnets in the board's accep- tance Gary did just a wonderful job and achieved one of the greatest accomplishments in sports by getting our league through tremendous obstacles and a satisfying first Hunter said Davidson expressed satisfaction with his tenure TuMday, October LETHBRIDQE HERALD-13 Seaman hot in victory John Seaman came up with the finest individual perfor- mance so far in the young 1973-74 Commercial Broom- ball League at the
