Bulls Prevail, 104-98 PAN FARE fiy Wdt Bitten Roadrunners Leave Cellar SAN DIEdO-Phoenix* Roadrunners notched their fourth straight victory Wednesday night, beating San Diego, 4*2, 'to hoist out of the Western Hockey League cellar for the first time in seven weeks. Victory implants the Roadrunners in fourth place, one point ahead of idle Vancouver which played at Seattle last night. The Roadrunners go back on the ice tonight in Phoenix for the first of two games with San Diego. "PIKE'S PLUGGERS" scored the first goal Wednesday night and then had to fight like fury, beating off a dogged San Diego attack. The Gulls already have third place sewed up and had nothing to lose except pride. And they went all out to protect that. The fierce attack which has marked Phoenix' last four games paid off with a 3-1 lead at the end of the second period. And then Phoenix had its hands full with the Gulls, who got the only combat goal of the third period. Phoenix' point, with 17 seconds to go, was into an undefended net. ONCE AGAIN PHOENIX' muscular back line bulwarked the victory. And goalie Rock Charron had an exemplary night with 26 saves, one into the pit of his stomach which nearly kayoed him and held up the game several minutes before he could recuperate. San Diego goalie Bob Champoux had 21 saves for the night. , On the forward line Del Topoll had a goal and an assist. Phoenix also got payoffs from Lou Jankowski, Morris Stef- aniw and Rollie Wilcox. AFTER A WILDLY defensive and scoreless first period, Phoenix opened a free scoring second with Jankowski's goal at 6:06. The play was set up by Wilcox' wild breakway down the left side and soft pass to Jankowski in front of the net. San Diego tied at 10:21 when Jim Eagle took Fred Hilts' pass , and stabbed a 15-footer through thick traffic in front of the Phoenix net. Phoenix fueled up then for a pair of goals by Topoll at 11:55 and by Stefaniw at 18:31. Topoll's goal completed a rink- long attack that started with Sandy Hucul carrying almost from his own net to the deep corner from where he passed to Jankowski, who relayed to Topoll. Stefaniw's goal was a tip-in of Claude Labrosse's slap shot from the blue line. SAN DIEGO GOT ITS second goal at 4:29 of the third period after Charron had blocked two volleys. The rebound on the second kicked out in front of the net and Len Ronson drove it into the net. The Runners final goal at 19:43 by Wilcox was into a wide open San Diego net as the Guls pulled Champoux trying for the tie. Roadrunner management yesterday said tickets were plentiful for games tomorrow and Saturday that close the home season. Tickets 'can be obtained at the Coliseum ticket office, 1826 W. McDowell, or reservations will be accepted by calling 254-6691.
