  • Description

    THE SOVIET UNION CONTINUED THEIR SUCCESS AT THE WORLD ICE HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS TODAY (THURSDAY).THEY BEAT THE UNITED STATES 9-2, AND SO SHARE THE HONOURS WITH CZECHOSLOVAKIA AS THE ONLY TWO TEAMS UNBEATEN AT THIS STAGE OF THE CONTEST.

    FOR THE UNITED STATES TEAM, THE CHAMPIONSHIPS HAVE BEEN A DISAPPOINTMENT.THEY HAVE BEEN BEATEN IN ALL THEIR MATCHES, MOST OF WHICH WERE AGAINST HIGHLY-RATED EAST EUROPEAN TEAMS.AMONG THEIR DEFEATS SO FAR WAS A CRUSHING BLOW FROM CZECHOSLOVAKIA BEATING THEM 12-NIL, A DEFEAT BY CANADA 5-2, AND A DEFEAT 7-4 BY EAST GERMANY.

    THE SOVIET UNION HAS HAD A RUN OF SUCCESSES - BUT AFTER TODAY'S GAMES THEY ARE SLIGHTLY BELOW CZECHOSLOVAKIA'S GOALS TALLY AT THE TOP OF THE EIGHT-NATION TABLE.THIS IS BECAUSE, ALTHOUGH BOTH TEAMS ARE UNBEATEN, CZECHOSLOVAKIA HAS SCORED A NUMBER OF OVERWHELMING DEFEATS ON HER OPPONENTS - CULMINATING TONIGHT IN AN 8-NIL VICTORY OVER CANADA.

    THREE DAYS REMAIN - AND THE SOVIET UNION AND CZECHOSLOVAKIA EACH HAVE TEN POINTS TOWARDS THE CHAMPIONSHIP.THE TITLE WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY BE DECIDED ON SATURDAY WHEN THE TWO TEAMS MEET.
