ALBLjLEK(jLE JULKIUL Monday, Member 27, 1978 C-5 Falcon Skaters Win, Gain Tie Against 'Jacks By JOE SKENANDORE Journal Staff Writer The best efforts of two outstanding goalies were not enough to hold back the hard-skating Air Force Academy Falcons over the weekend as they battled to a tie and a 5-1 victory over the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks on the ice at Tingley Coliseum. In Friday night's Rame, a crowd of over 1,000 watched as the Falcons superior stick-handling and passing was unable to overcome the spirited Lumberjacks. But the Saturday night game showed the effects that can have on a team. The Air Force squad begins training in August, while Northern Arizona must wait until the football team is done with the NAU Dome to set pu their ice in November. Lumberjack goalie John Casper tnrned in a solid performance minding the nets in Friday's game, but it was the inspired acrobatics of forrer top Southwest Hockey League goalie Doug "Woody" Allen that saved the Lumberjacks from being humiliated as they were outshot 54 to 26 on Saturday night. Former Albuquerque Chapparral Coach Cal Swenson said that the Air Force team was able to outplay the Lumberjacks on both nights because of their, superior conditioning. "Air Force gets more ice time," he said."Arizona was out-skated because the other team was in better shape. It's one thing to have a good game plan in your head. But it's another thing to complete it on the ice." Both the collegiate coaches, Swenson and promoter Dick Rogers said they would like to see college hockey return to Albuquerque. Arizona coach Jim Peters said he thinks there is enough interest in Albuquerque to support a UNM team, although he was "sort of disappointed" over the small crowd of about 1,500 that turned out for the Saturday night game. "If UNM could field a team, it would help our program, as well as those of other area schools. UNM denver University, Colorado College and Air Force will all be close enough for local games," he said. Coach John Matchefts said Air Force was invited to play its two "home games" here to promote college hockey in Albuquerque. "I think there is definitely enough interest here to support a team," he said. Peters said his team does not receive a regular athletic budget from Northern Arizona University because it only has status as a club sport, not a varsity sport. "We have to raise most of our funds ourselves," he said, "even though we have been around for six years." The Lumberjacks have compiled a 44-4-2 record over the last two years, he said. Matchefts said his team is a recognized and funded varsity sport at the school, and receives an annual budget of abont $50,000. "We don't get to recruit anyone, though," he said. "All of our students are appointed on the basis of their qualifications to become officers. They must, of course pass a very tough physical exam." Matchefts and Peters agreed that Air Force had the advantage in the series because they play a tougher schedule. Although they are now only 1-4-1 on the year, last season's Air Force team lost a game to national champion Boston College by only one point. The Falcons are the only inde-pendant college hockey squad in the nation and consequently play a wide range of teams. Asked how he enjoyed the games, one fan responded, "It's fantastic. If they can start a team here I might sign up. It's a great game." miss (Mmm TUfP XHARDWARE STORES IMS Jrsf WEER OF THE Great Gift Idea! QUANTITIES LIMITED now just $99 reg. '14.99 12-IN.
