Shades of 1970 Monday Mistakes costlv to Bombers WINNIPEG (CP) It was shades of 1970 for Winnipeg Blue Bombers and fans Monday nieht as Ihe Western Football Conference dub opened its 1971 home season u-illi a Joss lo Ottawa Eolith Riders. The Bombers only bvo j games in I960, but gave signs of' cominp back three exhibi- tion wins and a 21-20 loss in Toronto Lo the Argonauts last week in their league opener. quarterback Don Jonas, going mainly (o the air, had the Bombers ahead 15-10 at half time. But, as they did in many of their losses last year, the Bombers [ailed lo muster a con- sistent offensive attack in the second half. Head coach Jim Spa-vital said the loss "-as a result of loo many mistakes, but one u. wr- ticular. Trailing 10-8 car'- ui the second quarter the E. marched [rein tlieir own S'.-ynrd line to the Ottawa 23 before Jim Thorpe lonk a pass from Jonas to Hie Ottawa two. An illegal procedure penalty milled tbe play, moved the ball bar UMJIC 2a-yard line and a 35-yard field goal flUcrnpL by Jonas went Tride. "It w-as something that shouldn't have happened." Spavital said, "one of the many .mistakes we made that we shouldn't have." Jonas hit split end Bob Larose for a 70-yard touchdown and Hipped a Lwo-yarder to little Mack Hcrron for tbe other. He converted Larose's score and added a single on a missed field goal. I Fleet-footed Hugh Oldham got Ihe Ottawa club on the score- board, hauling in a Gary Wood pass at the Winnipeg 35 end blazing a trail to the end zone. Gerry Organ added the convert and a 24-yard field goal. Both defences came out tough in the second haH and it was the scrambling of Ottawa quarter- back Wood that eventually got Ihe Rough Riders untracked. Wood carried the ball 10 times for 90 yards and one Louchdomi to send the Riders into a 20-15 lead. Twenty-seven seconds later Barry Ardern picked off an er- rant Jonas pass on the Winnipeg 35-yard line and outdistanced the Bomber quarterback Lo the end zone. "It was just a poorly-thrown SpavitaJ said. The Bombers did come hack to narrow the count to 28-22 with Jim Thorpe's touchdown with 10 seconds remaining. While Winnipeg failed lo gen- era le any rushing offence I throughout the fin- I ishcd wilh 45 di- rected Dennis Duncan for 108 of their total 230 yards .All but 55 of Ottawa's total came in Ihe second half.
