BERT MAC'S CYCLE LTD. 913-3rd Ave. South Phont 327-3221 Yanosik to coach Native Sons this season By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor Howie Yanosik feels it's time he was back in hockey. As of today, he has a hockey job. The Lethbridge Y's Men's Native Sons today announced that Yanosik will coach their entry in the Central Alberta Junior "B" Hockey League. Assisting Yanosik will be former Lethbridge Sugar King Gerry LeGrandeur and Pete VanderHilt. Yanosik, a 10-year veteran of the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears, said Wednesday evening he was pleased with the opportunity to put back into hockey in Lethbridge some of the hours that were spent on him. If Yanosik, lacked one thing in hockey, it was size. And only his 5'10" frame kept him from the National Hockey League. Regier brothers show their desire By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor You have to want to play hockey, if you ride a 10- speed bike 280 miles to camp. But two bikes? Darcy and Des Regier had no second thoughts about their trip to the registration of the Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Canada Hockey League. Brothers, Darcy and Des arrived in Lethbridge aboard their 10-speeds after a trip that started on the weekend in Herbert, Sask. The two left Herbert, located 30 miles east of Swift Current, Saturday morning and arrived in Lethbridge Monday, but no one was around due to the holiday. "We had to wait a couple of days to said Darcy, the older of the two, "but it should be worth it." Yes, it should be worth it, in particular for Darcy. At 17, fresh from an all-star defensive berth in the Saskatchewan Junion Hockey League, he should fit into the Bronco plans for the 1974-75 season. Brother Des, who is a solid looking 16 year-old, will get his chance to display his talents beginning today. Why would you peddle your bike 280 miles to attend hockey training camp? Call it desire, if you will. From first impressions, Darcy and Des Regier are loaded with just that. Darcy says he has been running four miles a day for the past three weeks and riding his 10-speed between seven and 10 miles each day. Des, according to his older brother, has done just about the same amount of road work. One can't imagine a 280-mile bike ride, but as Darcy and Des put it, it was quite enjoyable. Averaging close to 15 miles per hour they logged 110 miles the first day, chalked up 128 the next and then just coasted in Mon- day from Taber. "We reached Maple Creek the first said Darcy "and then dug our heels in and rode all the way to Taber on Sunday." Darcy admitted they almost stopped in Bow Island Sunday, "But after two hours we jumped on our bikes and headed for Taber." It was good thinking what with the holiday weekend travellers. The road from Taber to Lethbridge at least gives 10-speeders a shoulder to ride on. Darcy was an all star defenceman with Prince Albert of the SJHL while Des toiled with the Swift Current Legionnaires, a midget club. What were the first impressions of Lethbridge and the Sportsplex? "The first thing you notice about said Darcy, "is how clean the city is." And the rink is better than any other ice facility in the Western Canada Hockey League." Darcy made it very clear that he was looking forward to playing his Tier 1 hockey in Lethbridge. "I hope so anyway" was the way he put it. As it now stands, Darcy and Des have traded in their 10-speeds for skates. They just may make it 560 miles before Saturday if coach Earl Ingarfield has his way and you count skating along with biking. Today, he will tell you, it would be a different story. "But we're talking about a different birthdate and he says. Now the young fellows in minor hockey have something to strive for. Not just in junior ranks but professional hockey as well. The Native Sons will work in agreement with the Lethbridge Broncos, a situa- tion that pleases Yanosik and the Sons' executive to no end. "It has to be a great incen- tive for a young player to know that he doesn't have to go elsewhere to play Tier 1 hockey, said Yanosik, "It's right here in his own back yard." Yanosik was an excellent defenceman with the Hershey Bears and earned all-star recognition four times. He started his pro career, ironically, in Saskatoon, the same place as Earl Ingarfield, another former native son of Lethbridge and coach of the Broncos this year. After Saskatoon it was a case of brief apprenticeships in Edmonton and Brandon before the American League. Yanosik stated that it was a real pleasure to be given the chance to coach in Lethbridge again. He coached the Lethbridge Sugar Kings in 1969-70 but stepped down due to business pressures. he said Wednesday, "I have the time to devote to the young men." The affiliation with the Broncos, says Yanosik, is the shot in the arm his club needs. "A barrier that existed years ago, has been he said. "There is unlimited op- portunity in hockey and Tier 1 is the first step. Yanosik has the background and experience to do an ex- cellent job for the Native Sons. As one official of the Sons put it, "hockey, in Lethbridge, has never been in better shape with Yanosik and Ingarfield as coaches." And LeGrandeur, currently articling with a law firm, will simply add his touch of class. While a left winger with the Sugar Kings he was an all-star at his position as well as the highest scoring left winger in the AJHL. His record has since been broken. LeGrandeur captained the University of Alberta Golden Bears after a tryout with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He was unable to attend the Wednesday night gathering, however, Yanosik summed it all up by describing LeGrandeur as his best player with the Kings in 1969-70 "and there's no doubt in my said Yanosik, "that he will add greatly to the success of the Native Sons." Sons open their camp next Monday evening and will work out through the llth with evening sessions from 7-9. Was it worth it? "You bet" says Des Regier of Herbert Sask. after he and his brother rode 10- speed bikes all the way to register for the Lethbridge Broncos camp. Des, at right and Darcy will workout, starting today, under the watchful eye of Bronco coach Earl Ingarfield. Ingarfield, with some help, will look at over 80 young men, including one netminder from Anchorage, Alaska and another from Phoenix, Ariz., over the next few days. Broncos are currently working out at Henderson Lake Ice Centre. Royals meet Calgary on Saturday Lethbridge Royals, currently in first spot in the Second Division of the Calgary Soccer League Association, will see action Saturday at the Civic Sports Centre. The Royals will be up against Calgary Amaco and game time is p.m. The Royals recently competed in the Labor Day. Soccer Tournament in Fernie. B.C.. winning one game and losing two. Spokane Oat Willys took it on the chin 10-0 at the hands of the Royals but the Lethbridge team dropped a 3-1 verdict to Calgary Callies and a 5-3 deci- sion to Fernie United. Handicapped due to several injuries to key players, the Royals missed winning the Fernie tournament for the first time in the past four years. Angeio Maura was the big gun for the Royals in the three games as he booted four goals. John Stropnik had three goals in the tourney while Frank Suriano. Ivan Smiljanec and Kaz Akabane had two apiece. Alvin Tietz netted the remaining marker. Abby Weber was in goal for all three games for the Royals. MATHEWS CHARGED ATLANTA
