Seldom does the peerless prognosticator even come close. Earlier I at- tempted to assess the of the clubs of the Eastern going out on a limb by picking Ottawa as No. 1. After the comple- tion of the exhibition 1 have seen nothing that would make me alter that original judgment. The West- Conference is another story. Things changed dur- ing the course of four exhibi- tion games with some clubs growing stronger and more and just the opposite. With league play already under let's take a look at the probable order of finish for the Western Con- ference 1973 version. I must confess at the outset that I am essentially a Sas- katchewan Roughrider with Calgary second in my affections. I worked for the Riders as a I covered Saskatchewan home games for five years in the middle The master strategists of the Jolly Green Giants have made several changes in the club that went to the Grey Cup last year. Tackle Clyde Brock has but has been replaced by former de- fensive Tim Roth. Roth has shown to be an excellent blocker on the but a little shakey at pass protec- tion. Ralph Galloway is the other offensive one of the finest in the league. The Riders have two veterans at the guard Jack Abendshan and Gary Brandt. In his third year at will be Canadian Larry Bird. Veteran jack-of-all Allan Ford will play at tight end. Although not nearly the blocker that departed Nolan Bailey Ford can catch and fitting nicely into Payne's plan of attack. New- comer Hick Eber will he at split end. He is rated as the best Rider receiver since Hugh Campbell. Flanker will be veteran Gordie Barwell. Leading the offensive team will be the CFL's top quarter- back Ronnie Lancaster. Ron- nie looks better than throwing as strongly as I have seen him in his long career. Lancaster is positively ecsta- tic over the coming season because coach Payne wants to feature a throwing offense. Lancaster is just the man for Even without Mack Herron and Jim Winnipeg should come home in second place. With Phil and Mickey Doyle backing up a good defensive the Blue Bombers should be very tough to move against. Their defensive a strong aggregation last will be just as good in 1973. But the Bombers have chang- ed. This year they must do it Last the Edmonton Eskimos survived an incredi- ble string of injuries to finish in second place. This year the Eskimos have defensive problems. Coach Ray Jauch has lost defensive standouts Greg Dave Gasser and Jim Henshel. Linebacker Ger- ry Griffin has a suspect knee as has Ron Fonvick. the Eskimos demonstrated a real lack of ability to move the ball dur- ing the exhibition season. The Calgary I am sorry to have a lot of problems. They have no backfield to speak of with the exception of Silas Mc- Kinnie. Their Ger- ry Fritz John Senst and Tom Forzani have not impressed during the ex- hibitions. They have rookies playing at two linebacking spots. Although Steve Brown is going to be a football play- the Stamps at this point do not have an adequate placement for Wayne Karris. On the positive the of- fensive line with Basil Granny Lanny Bole- Marian Latimore and Max Huber is experienced The Lions have a new fensive a great back- and Ron Jim Young and Ray Nettles. If their injured return to if Eagle Keys picks up some good late B.C. could sur- and I was born and raised in Regina. I know that for many once a Roughrider always a Roughrider fan. I also know that there are many people in the Medicine Hat-Leth- bridge area who likewise live and die with the exploits of the Jolly Green Giants. I like to that I can be objective when assessing a team's chances. Last year I picked Saskatche- wan the place they ul- timately finished. For the first time in two or three I believe the Saskatchewan Roughriders at the outset have the football club to beat. Coach John Payne has put together an excellent blend of youth and tough- ii' I and finesse. Saskatchew- an has but not nearly the number of prob- lems that the other clubs in the league have. Although they open the schedule by playing three games in nine strangely enough that should be to their advantage because those games are against B.C. and Calgary. the job. Another George is back in top physical a step but more effective than most other backs in the league. At halfback will be sophomore Tom and veteran speedster Bobby Thompson. The Saskatchewan offense will score a lot of points. They have experience where it the offen- sive line and at quarterback. the Riders fi- gure they have finally solved their backfield problems. Ei- ther Payne has got people with tremendous or he's crazy when you look at the fact that he cut Bruce an all-Canadian safe- ty. Bruce will be replaced by Ted Provost. Rounding out the defensive backfield will be Lewis rookie Cana- dian Lorne Richardson from Moose Jim and Ted Dushinski. Charlie Col- Evan Scott and Bill Manchuk are the linebackers. The front four with Ed Mc- Bill Rock Perdoni and Don Bahnuik are as good as any. Weak- No adequate back-up for rookies at line- backer and defensive back- and the punting game with Bob Pearce. Saskatche- wan should still be sood enough to wrap up first place in the West this year. with defense no the offense is weak- er. with veteran Don Jonas throwing to Pete Bob and Paul and with an offensive line nearly as good as last Winnipeg will still be able to score points. Coach Jim Spavital is too good a coach to see his club drop out of sight after losing two stellar performers. Jauch will have Gene Foster and Roy Bell in his backfield giving assistance to quarter- back Bruce Lemmerman. One of the finest passers in the Lemmerman will have Tyrone George McGowan and Bobby Taylor to pass to. The Eskies are working some newcomers in- to the offensive line. Appar- ently they show a lot of prom- but that all important timing is bound to be off for awhile. Third spot. and rough. I still expect Ger- ry Shaw to have a good year. John Fred Jim and the Forzan- is are tough on defense. Lar- ry Robinson is the standout in an excellent defensive backfield. The same Robin- son provides reliability as a place kicker. The punting is something else again. Naturally Peter Liske is a plus. He showed to excellent advantage against Toronto. Peter has been away for' a few and I think Calgary would have been better served during the early part of the season by veteran Jerry DOW cut. prise and advance to fourth. The biggest if of all is Don Morehead. Keys is staking his job on the notion that More- head will lead the Lions to the promised land. M'OICIS Stars earn victories The Lethbridge Miners and Lethbridge Hotel North Stare registered victories in a pair of Southern Alberta Major Men's Fastball League action at Dave Elton Park Tuesday night. In the first the Miners scored a 10-3 win over the Labor Club Athletics while in the second the North Stars defeated York Farm Generals 8-6. In the first the Miners came back from a 2-0 first inning deficit with five big runs in the third frame to drop the Athletics. Gary Simmons went the dis- tance on the mound allowing seven hits for the decision while George Jackci gave up 13 safeties in the loss. George Waselenak led the Miners at the plate with three singles while Corrido Blair Hurt and Richard Mer- tier added two singles apiece. Terry Rhodes paced the Ath- letics with two singles. In the second the North Stars dumped the Gen- erals for the third time in as many days. North Stars had just elim- inated the Generals in the southern zone Alberta senior B men's semi-final playoffs with victories Sunday and Monday. Dennis Hydychuk earned the mound verdict relinquishing only six hits while Kaye El- liott was handed the fees giv- ing up 11 hits. Mitch Mychasiuk stroked a triple and single to lead the North Stars while Tom Beres- nak and Ken Endzioski added a double and single each. Elliott rapped a pair of sin- gles in a 1 sing cause with doubles goujg to Rod Morrice and Lloyd Yamagisni. Meanwhile the Northstars will host the Alber- ta midget A girls' fastball championship finals at Dave Elton Park this weekend. The winners of the southern Alberta zone play- will entertain Red Deer who are the champions in central along with the northern representatives from Bonn Accord in the one- day final series set for Sun- day. The Northstars and Red Deer Lake will open the tourney at 10 o'clock in the morning and will be followed by another match at 12 o'clock noon fea- turing the losers of the first game and Bonn Accord. The winners of the first tilt will see action again at two o'clock when they face Bonn The final encounter of the day is slated for 4 but if a fifth game is needed it'll go at 6 p.m. cLRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES ALBERTA MAJOR LEAGUE FINAL South Division W Lethbr'dge Cal.
