Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Travelling to Eastern Canada Book now on the 8 to 30 day excursion (Effective Oct. 1) and Save ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL The LetHbridge Herald i ra-7411 FILING CABINETS Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, September 11, 1974 Pages 23-34 Howe scores three in 6-1 triumph Push fellows, push Last year's Alberta High School Coach of the Niedermier and Alan Boras. The Cougars open Year, Dean Dahl of Catholic Central Cougars, gets their season Friday against their long-standing behind four of his players to give them some as- rivals, LCI Rams. The game is slated for 8 at Hen- sistance on the blocking sled. Receiving the help, derson Stadium, left to right, are Dave Jackson, Steve Devcic, Barry Catholic Central Cougars ready, Dahl conservatively optimistic By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer The only team to unseat the LCI Rams over the past 20 years in the race for the Southern Alberta High School Football League championship has been the Catholic Central Cougars. The Cougars, however, must be considered in the rebuilding stage this year after finishing third in the West Division last season, behind LCI and Winston Churchill. "If we can stay away from injuries we might move up to at least second spot this Cougar coach Dean Dahl stated. "We have a big team, but lack in depth. Our lineback- ing could be stronger too. On the plus side, we have our entire backfield returning with one exception and fullback Barry Niedermier is a strong runner." Niedermier is a big one, standing six foot three and tipping the scales at 210 pounds. "The Cougars will win it all this year. Our backfield has experience and will be better, plus the fact that our defence is the confident fullback stated. Catholic Central's attack is run from a wishbone for- mation. "We use the wishbone because we have the personnel who can utilize it. It is suited to a power offence and that is geared to our game, as our passing is not that con- coach Dahl said. Coach Dahl sends in as many plays as possible to quarterback Alan Boras. "I feel the boys are under enough pressure without having to plan strategy on the field as the coach stated. While the Cougars have 17 returnees from last year on their 35-man squad they also have 15 grade 10 rookies on the team. Among this year's rule changes is the option to kick a convert for a single point or try for a two-point conversion by either passing or running the ball. "This presents a problem as to what you do if you score coach Dahl said. "We'll probably be going after the two points. High school kicking is erratic and the low percentage of kicks made would justify our attempting the pass or the run for two points." Despite finishing third last year Dean Dahl was nam- ed the Alberta High School coach of the year. "He has unlimited patience and puts in plenty of time and effort into the team; as well as having numerous useful Niedermier stated. Steve, Devcic, a fullback and a defensive end, said, "he expects us to do our best and as a result we try a little harder for him." The Cougars' kicker, as well as an offensive guard and middle linebacker, George Seiller had another thought about coach Dahl. "He has discipline on the team and that's important Everybody respects fair discipline." All three boys stress that the Cougars will finish on top of the heap this year. "The league is better overall this year and we have strengthened over last year, enough to win Devcic stated. "Everybody pulls together on this team. We have big guys and there's no doubt that we'll finish Seiller stressed Seiller, also a soccer player, does the kicking, soccer style. His team-mates say he has a shot at making any field goal inside the 25-30 yard line. LCI is the team to beat according to Dahl. "With Collier (RickX and Baldry (Mark) they have a good backfield but the key to them is in their line with the return of Don Johnson. He makes that a strong unit." When selecting the starters on the team coach Dahl looks for speed and agility, then strength. But he pointed out, without desire these skills are wasted. Assisting coach Dahl with his double blue and white charges is Aurelio Delbello and Father Brown. Harvey Pocza has chance at gold medal OTTAWA (CP) With a day of competition still to go, three champions were declared Tuesday in the national youth five-pin bowl- ing championships. In each case, their leads are so great that they cannot be caught in the one day of play remaining. Meanwhile, Harvey Pocza of Lethbridge, the Alberta junior champion, is still in the running for a gold medal in the singles competition. Pocza, of Capri Lanes, won eight of nine games Tuesday and is tied with the Manitoba champion for second place with 18 points, one back of leading Northern Ontario.

In bantam girls' competi- tion Lethbridge, the Alberta representatives, can still win a silver or bronze. The gold medal has Ween won by Saskatchewan. However, the Lethbridge gals have eight points and trail Ontario by three points. B. C. and Manitoba each have nine points. Bowling on the bantam team are Jackie Pearson, Kim Masson, Jan Baker, Pam Virostek and Pam Shigehiro. Ed Nordvall of Calgary wrapped up the senior boy's singles event by building up a record of 18 wins and three losses while Prince Albert, Sask., went out in front of the bantam girl's team event 144. Also oat of reach of their near- est competitors was the Sod- bury team in the Junior boy's event, with a 14-1 record. Almost 300 entries were tak- ing part in the competitions at two local bowling estab- lishments Christine Danis of Gatmean, Qne., remained first in the bantam girl's singles at Leonard Leveille of Earlton, Ont, took over first place in the junior boy's singles with a 184 record and Regma eased oat Surrey, B.C., to lead the senior boy's team event with a 13-5 record. Tfce championships are sch- eduled to end today. Team Canada tired of juniors SASKATOON (CP) An ancient but far from decrepit Gordie Howe showed the juniors and the pros how Thursday night as Team Canada '74 defeated the Western Canada All Stars 6-1 in preparation for a series against Russia Howe, 46, scored three goals, tossed his weigbt .around with abandon, and provided the leadership Team Canada must receive in the eight-game set with Russia which starts Sept. 17 at Quebec City. A record crowd of watched Howe's every move. He grew up here and was born at nearby Floral. It was by far the most snappish exhibition game and included the first fighting ma- jors. Kim Clackson, a junior defenceman, tangled with Serge Benuer near the All Stars nets with IS seconds remaining. Each drew a ma- jor. Clarkson baited Marc Tar- dif f, who scored one goal, into an earlier penalty. PROVES CONTENTION Coach Billy Harris of Team Canada said the fight proved his contention that the pros should not retaliate against the Russians. "We will be frustrated if the officiating is inconsistent, as it will he said. "We will be under pressure and we simply must not retaliate But it's difficult to change the habits of players accustomed to the Canadian tradition of retaliation." Harris said some players have controlled themselves better than others in the ex- hibition series against the juniors, but "there if still some way to go." Mike Walton scored two Team Canada goals, one on a classical move around defen- ceman Pat Price and the other on a quick slap that trickled through the pads of goalie Ed Staniowski. McDonald has quit WINNIPEG (CP) Ab McDonald, a 17-year veteran of professional hockey during which he played in four Stanley Cup finals, today announced his retirement from the game. McDonald, 38, who played 15 years in the National Hockey League and his last two as captain of Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Association, said he just doesn't have the desire to enter another season. "I'm finding it harder and harder to push myself. I've enjoyed my years but can't find the life in me to try for another." The product of the Weston area of Winnipeg likely is remembered best for his toils on the left side of the scooter line with Chicago Black Hawks of the NHL, when he played with Stan Mikita and Kenny Wharram. Staniowski faced 41 shots compared with 17 by Gerry Cheevers. "We had some said defenceman Pat Stapleton of his Team Canada mates. "We let the puck do the work; we finally did things quickly enough to keep the, juniors off us." The only junior goal was scored by Dale McMulhn late in the second period. Team Canada winger Paul Henderson was hurt when he skated into the boards and left the game in the second period. However, the hero of the 1972 victory over Russia returned for the third period. Another leading left winger, Bobby Hull, was in Winnipeg recovering from a minor knee injury, and a third, Frank Ma- hovlich, was not dressed. The Herald Sports Don McLeod a Blazer? VANCOUVER (CP) The Province says Don McLeod will be playing goal for the Vancouver Blazers of the World Hockey Association this season The veteran goaltender, the league's leading goaltender last year, has been playing for the Houston Aeros The morning newspaper said in today's edition that McLeod has agreed to a long- term contract with the Blazers The agreement calls for around a year, the amount McLeod had asked for from the Aeros, the Province says. "I'll definitely be playing in Vancouver this said McLeod "I'm satisfied with the agreement. I hear they (the Blazers have a great organization.
