Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, Oetobtr Locals lose 10-4 in opener Wednesday Mount Royal belts Pronghorns By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer A spirited University of Lethbridge Pronghorn effort died in the late going Wednes- day night as they dropped a 10- 4 decision to the Mount Royal Coiiegc Cougars in- their hockey season opener at Henderson Ice Centre. The Pronghorns gave the Alberta College Athletic Conference defending cham- pions a real battle for two and a half periods, but the Cougars rallied for five goals in the final 11 minutes to salt away the victory. Dave Neil and John Hagen led the Mount Royal scorers with two goals each, while singles came off the sticks of Clint Armstrong, Bob Bailey, Bill Hall, Brad Robson, Lome Guenette, and Peter O'Gor- man.. Merton Vaile paced the Pronghorns with a pair of goals, while Rob Amatto and Wally Tunow added singles. The locals led 3-1 early in the second period, and trailed only 5-4 with 11 minutes to go, but thr size and experience of the Calgary club took its toll in the remaining time. The Pronghorns completely dominated play.: in the first period, outshooting the Cougars 22-9, and appeared ready to carry a 2-0 lead into the dressing room until Armstrong deflected a shot past Pronghorn goaltender Peter Shalk with just five seconds remaining. Vaile had opened the scor- ing for the Pronghorns at the mark when he directed Jim McDonald's slap shot from the right point into the net with Armstrong sitting in the Cougar penalty box for tripping. Midway through the period, captain Amatto took a pass from Brian Conrad in the cir- cle to the left of Mount Royal netminder Peter Allan, and wasted no time in flashing the light. The line of Conracl Amatto, and Vaile was outstanding throughout the night for Gary Bartlett's club, and narrowly missed beating Allan on several other occasions. Early in the second period, Tunrw deflected Wayne Kist's screened shot from the point past Allan to give the Pronghornss their 3-1 lead. That was to be shortlived, however, as Bob Bailey came back to cut the gap to 3-2 just 12 seconds later. Neil then scored two goals for the Cougars, first on a breakaway and then while killing a penalty, before Bill Hall's deflection gave the visitors a 5-3 lead. Vaile's second goal of the night came from behind the Cougar net late in toe period. Just after a heavy fall into the boards, the lanky leftwinger's centering pass bounced off a Mount Royal defenceman into the net. The. final frame was all Mount Royal, and only steady work by Shalk kept them off the scoresheet until the mark. Before the final buzzer sounded, five of 22 Mount Royal shots in the third period found their way into the net. All told, Shalk faced 48 shots between the Fronghorn pipes while Allen was called upon to make 36. saves. The two clubs split the 16 minor penalties handed out by referee Jim Wallace right down the middle. The Pronghorns will attempt to even their record Friday night at Henderson when they host Olds College ir. an 8 p.m. contest. The two teams are scheduled to meet again Saturday afternoon at two. ICE CHIPS Coach Gary Bartlett's major complaint going into the game was the inability of his boys to put together three solid periods of hockey the Pronghorns definitely vindicated his fears still, his club showed remarkable hustle most of the way, and demonstrated a willingness to mix it up with the much bigger Cougars. as the season goes on, the Pronghorns should give any team a real battle.

Cougars go after league title, play in Medicine Hat Friday J7 tf By GARRY, ALLISON Herald Sports Writer There's nothing the Catholic Central Cougars would like to do more than duplicate their 1971 Southern Alberta High School Football League record. That was the year the Cougars won the league title and com- piled a seven win, one tie and no loss record. The Cougar's 1974 record stands at six wins, one tie and no losses. They get the opportunity to add the seventh win, and the league championship, to their 1974 record Friday night when they battle Medicine Hat Crescent Heights Mohawks in Medicine Hat. Despite the Cougars' impressive record this season, the game in Medicine Hat is by no means a walk-over.' In an earlier meeting with Crescent Heights, also in the 'Hat, the Cougars eked out a narrow 10-9 verdict. "It's tough to win in the coach Dean Dahl said. "They have a narrow field and that takes away a great deal of our outside speed. We have to play grind-it-out football, right down the middle." The Cougars will go into the championship game Friday night with only one player on the injured list, Roman Ksiazek. Ksiazek was the'key. man in the Cougar victory over Crescent Heights last time they met. The 190 pound tackle pounced on a loose ball iri the Mohawk endzone, scoring the only major for the Cougars. Catholic Central will have to look elsewhere for their scor- ing Friday as a cracked shoulder will keep Ksiazek out of the lineup. Coach Dahl will be showing the Mohawks a new defensive setup and will add some new wrinkles to his offensive game as well. "We will be changing some of our blocking assignments. Teams have been keying off our old assignments too often so we'll be doing a lot more pulling, running more trap plays. Barry Niedermier and Steve Devcic will see a lot more action through the middle and we'll send Dave Jackson out wide as a pass receiver and a coach Dahl stated. "We'll operate out of a six man line on defence instead of the five man line we used last time we played Crescent Heights." The 1973 coach of the year felt his team had to contain Mohawks' Tom Stevenson. "If we control him we'll be in good shape. He's probably the best player in the league and he'll take a lot of watching." One of the stronger points of the Cougar game is the kicking of George Seiller. "He's one of the best we've ever had at the coach Dahl said. "He hit on all six field goal attempts this year and missed only one of 21 convert tries. He's figured prominently in a lot of our close games this year." The unsung hero of the Cougar team all year has been quarterback Alan Boras. Boras is a steady, dependable member of the West Division champions who runs a solid ground game and can hit with the pass when it's needed. "The first time out team went to the 'Hat to play the Mohawks we took them for granted but we are prepared for them this time. Our attitude has changed drastically, we are up for this coach said. It's been a long tune between championships for the Cougars and it will be the last chance many of the Catholic Central players have at a league title. Only Niedennier and Dave Rohovie remain from the 1971 championship team and it will be the last chance they, and 11 other grade 12 members of the Cougars, have at grabbing a league championship. The Cougars are ready. Medicine Hat Crescent Heights will have to beat more than just a football team Friday, they will have to beat a well-disciplined, group of dedicated boys who have one common goal in mind winning.

"Yesterday he couldn't even shoot the said Atlanta coach Cotton Fltzsim- mons after the Wednesday night National Basketball Association game. "He came to me right before the game and said, 'Coach I don't know if I can get the aim up. He got it up." Hudson, suffering from cal- cium deposits and inflamma- tion in his arm, reacted to the challenge of the moment "It's the exritemeot of play- said Hudson, explaining how he rose above the pain.

Jerry Areshenko and Len Jarvie crossed the Cougar goalline for major and Mark Rowe booted a convert. Yuill scored his first touchdown in the second quarter and the Cougars went to the dressing room at half time trailing 13-7 after Ralph West converted the Yuill ma- jor. Yuill's second major came in the third quarter and knotted the, game at 13-13. Christopher Alexandropolis moved the Bulldogs back into the lead with a touchdown and Barry Schmidt added a two point convert. The quarter closed with the Churchill team ahead 21-13. Yuill was the entire show in the final stanza as he racked up two more touchdowns and moved his club into the lead to stay. The Bulldogs dominated the yardstick story but couldn't put enough points on the Scoreboard to beat the Cardston squad. Winston Churchill ac- counted for 337 yards total offence, 135 of which came through the air. The Cougars only managed 64 yards pass- ing and added 159 rushing. Penalties were costly to the Bulldogs as they were penaliz- ed 205 yards throughout the game compared to only 65 for the Cougars. Canadians pay plenty TORONTO (CP) Tuesday night's closed circuit televi- sion coverage of Muhammad Ali's knockout of Joe Frarier for the world heavyweight boxing championship in Zaire proved a financial boom for the Canadian promoters. More than 100.000 fans at 32 theatres and arenas from Syd- ney, N.S., to Vancouver paid more than to view the omit that ended in the eighth round when Ali regain- ed the crown he was stripped of seven years ago for refus- ing induction into the U.
