Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, September 25, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Pat Sullivan Things will get tougher Well, that's four down and four to go and while Team ;Canada '74 has been pleasantly surprising the worst is yet to come. Coach Billy Harris feels his club can only get better. I hope he's right. Playing in Moscow won't be anywhere near to play- ing at home. Team Canada is expected to leave for Moscow this week for games in Sweden and Finland before tackling the Russian Bear in his own stomping grounds. The first game between Canada and Russia, in Moscow, is Oct.. 1, next Tuesday. They play again next Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Tuesday and Thursday's games are on TV at in the morning MDT. The weekend encounters go at nine in the morning. When I say I have been pleasantly surprised at Team Canada I mean it. When the series was set to start I would have thought Canada lucky to win one game in the eight. In 1972, which seems like a long time ago, Team Canada i met an unknown factor in the Russians. They learned a lesson from the Soviets that eventually resulted in an overall victory for Canada. However slim, it was a victory. I didn't give Team Canada '74 credit for being honest. They said how much they had learned from the first series and what a benefit it would be this time around. I myself couldn't see it until game two of this year's show- down. When I saw Team Canada in Medicine Hat they went through the motions. They are not going through the motions now. No, Team Canada '74 can hold their heads high regardless of what happens in Russia. Like millions of other Canadians, I bled in 1972. It was probably the biggest shock I have ever had. I can recall looking for someone to bet me that Yvon Cournoyer would score 10 or 12 goals against the Russians. As far as I was concerned they had nfever seen anyone as fast. You have to give the Russians credit. They are loaded with confidence. The fact they are playing the professionals doesn't faze them one iota. There in, I feel, lies the difference. In the second game, after a great start in game one, Team Canada pulled the plug on the Russian machine. You might say the Soviets suffered a power failure. Comrade one, instead of being at point A found himself at point B. The machinery, so well oiled, tuned to perfection, began to miss. You could almost hear the rods knocking. Last Saturday the mechanics were at it and the Russians looked great. They came back Monday and may carry the edge, if there is one to be taken from four such evenly played games. Team Canada, because it is their style, will continue to take penalties. One has to wonder just how long they can keep the Russian power play under control. Let's face it, there will be no breaks in Moscow from the officials. This year's Russian team, to me, is not as strong as it was in 1972. New coach Boris Kulagin keeps saying it is not as ex- perienced. He may be telling us something. I have even seen the Russians lose their cool. That would never have happened in 1972. Gary Hull, coach of the Taber Golden Suns, took in the game in Vancouver Monday-and felt Team Canada should not have tried to slow the pace down. And the penalties to Johnny MacKenzie didn't help when you consider four of the best skaters on the club had to kill off six minutes of penalties. They just didn't have very much left when the final buzzer sounded. Team Canada surprised me in the first four games. Maybe they will get stronger. If they do, my prediction of one win if any. will look pretty bad and I'm getting awfully tired of eating crow. Water polo Junior water polo action has commenced in Lethbridge. Last weekend, the Seagulls defeated the Albatrosses 8-0 in action at Lethbridge Family Y pool. The teams are composed of members of the 8th Lethbridge Sea Scouts. Games are scheduled approximately every six weeks throughout the winter. The Seagulls and Albatrosses would like to hear from any other junior water polo teams in Southern Alberta. Persons interested in the sport should write The Skipper, 8th Lethbridge Sea Scouts. 1302 4th Avenue S. Membership in the two existing teams is restricted to registered members of 8th Lethbridge Sea Scouts. However the group is prepared to play any other junior water polo team, whether Scouts or not. Lalonde wants NHL, WHA mix Watch my head says Larry Lintz of the Montreal Expos during steal attempt. An injured Stargell still dangerous, Dodgers within three of berth By The CANADIAN PRESS Despite an injured wrist, Willie Stargell managed a three-run homer Tuesday night to lead Pittsburgh Pirates to a 7-3 win over St. Louis Cardinals and a one-half game over the Cards at the top of the National League East. In the West Division, Los Angeles widened its lead as the Dodgers beat Atlanta Braves 2-1 in 10 innings. They remain five games ahead of Cincinnati Reds and reduced their pennant-clinching number to three. In other National League games, Cincinnati beat Houston Astros 5-1, Philadelphia Phillies downed New York Mets 6-3, San Diego Padres edged San Francisco Giants 3-2 and, in a double- header, Chicago Cubs beat Montreal 6-4 before the Expos bounced back to romp 11-2 in the second game. HIT ON WRIST Stargell had been hit on the right wrist by a pitch in the sixth inning, but by the seventh inning, the pain was the furthest thing from Willie's mind as he hit his 24th homer of the year. John Curtis stymied Pitts- burgh on three hits before sin- gles by Rennie Stennett and Manny Sanguillen got the Bucs going into the sixth. Stargell was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Stennett scored on Richie Zisk's grounder, walks to Bob Robertson and Richie Hebner shoved the Pirates on top 2-1 before Parker got his hit. In the seventh. Stennett and Al Oliver singled before Stargell unloaded his homer to leftcentre field off Rich Folkers. The Dodgers can clinch a tie for the West Division crown in their last home game tonight. "It would be great to do it at home." said Ron Cey, whose Curran shelved, fined VANCOUVER (CP) Mike Curran, goal tender for Minnesota Fighting Saints of the World Hockey Association, has been fined and suspended for five games as the result of a playoff altercation with an of- ficial last year. Bud Poile, vice-president and director of operations for the WHA, announced the move Tuesday night follow- ing a meeting here of the league's board of directors before travelling to Helsinki with Team Canada 74. Curran charged referee Bob Sloan in the sixth game of the Houston-Minnesota semi-final playoff series May 1 in St. Paul. "It was unanimously agreed that acts of violence by players, coaches and managers will be dealt with severely." said Poile. Curran was also ordered to post a bond for the duration of his contract. Poiie said that this year, only the designated team captain will be allov.-ed to talk to the official and "abuse of officials will not be tolerated." eighth-inning home run brought the Dodgers into a 1-1 eight-inning tie. Knuckleballer Phil Niekro had one-hit Los Angeles before Cey homered. Then, in the 10th, Steve Yeager doubl- ed with two out, the Dodgers loaded the bases on two walks and Yeager dashed home when catcher Johnny Gates couldn't handle one of Niekro's fluttering'pitches. Johnny Bench signalled for a hit-and-run play, then did both, breaking a tie with a tri- ple in a three-run fifth inning to help the Reds defeat Houston and keep alive Cin- cinnati's flickering pennant hopes. Joe Morgan walked before Bench belted his three- bagger. Bench then came home on Milt May's passed ball. Dan Driessen singled, moved to second on an infield out and scored on Dave Concepcion's single. Larry Bovva banged three hits and knocked in two runs while Greg Luzinski hit a three-run homer in the Phillies' victory over New York. OTTAWA (CP) The team representing Canada in any future hockey series against the Soviet Union will have players from both the National Hockey League and the World Hockey Association if Health Minister Marc Lalonde gets his way. Entering a cabinet com- mittee meeting Tuesday, Mr. Lalonde said he is pleased with the results so far in the present eight-game series, tied with one win for each team and two ties. "But I hope that once this one is over we can start plann- ing for the next series in two years time with both leagues getting together. "I hope this will be possible and I'll do anything I can to help it happen." Mr. Lalonde said dis- cussions are going on "at the international level" for the renewed participation of Canada in international hockey. "This particular series is not a step towards that as such, but the last two series have certainly helped in the general context with the reappearance of Canada in the area of international hockey." Asked if the current talks would lead to participation in world competition of-'a Cana- dian amateur team or if professionals would continue to represent this country, Mr. Lalonde said he cannot give any details while negotiations are in progress. "However, I think we'll have some developments in the next few months." Canada dropped out of top- level international amateur hockey several years ago after prolonged dispute over the use of-professional players. Despite the Team Canada series and accompanying exhibition games by the Cana- dian professionals against other European teams, this country has not participated in the official world hockey championships or Olympic hockey competition since the amateur national team was disbanded. However, there have been continuing competitions in- volving Canadian senior, junior and minor hockey teams against similar teams from other countries. It is understood that Hockey Canada and hockey groups in other countries are working on plans for a spring tourna- ment to precede the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. The health minister would not specify what sort of com- petition he expects Canada to be involved in after the current series winds up next month in Moscow. Team Canada is off VANCOUVER (CP) Team Canada 74, still sagging mentally after blowing a three-goal lead in the fourth game of the emotion-packed international hockey summit series, was off to Helsinki Tuesday, the first stop on the road to Moscow. The charter flight to Finland was expected to take 10 hours. Discussing Canada's failure to defend a 5-2 lead in Monday night's 5-5 tie with the Russians, coach Billy Harris said the major problem was a face-off mistake on the fourth goal when the Canadians did not appear to be ready for the draw. Alexander Maltsev pumped a perfect shot past Gerry Cheevers with less than four minutes remaining and Alex- ander Gusev followed with the tying goal 51 seconds later. Harris said the line of Andre Lacroix, Johnny McKenzie and Bobby Hull had not been scored on previously in the series. "We had Pat Stapleton and J. C. Tremblay on said Harris. "If I had to play the final four minutes over again, it would be those people on the ice for Canada." Harris said he expects a great finish in Moscow, where the eight-game series concludes Oct. 6. Canada enters the last half of the series tied with the Soviets, each with one win and two ties. "We are in a little more comfortable position than Team Canada said Harris. Two years ago, when Canada won four and tied one of the eight games, the Russians led 2-1. with one tie after the Canadian part of the series. Harris said Team Canada played much more soundly Monday night than in the 8-5 Russian victory two days earlier in Winnipeg. SPEED QUEEN QUALITY WORTH LOOKING INTO 2 year parts and labor warranty.
