Phone 327-8889 CLOSED MONDAY Open Thurtday and Friday Until 9 p.m. Graham Kelly clock was running out De c. W72 at Ivor Wynn Stadium in Hamilton.. Thousands of spectators and millions more at home were waiting expectantly for the final play. The centre fired the ball back. BUI Steve Ed McQuart- ers and Rock Perdoni struggl- ed against the Ti-Cat line. The ball was and Ian Sunter swung his foot through the ball sending it end-over- end towards the goal posts in the distance. A hush fell over the crowd. Time seem- ed suspended while the ball taotalizingly flew its course toward the appointed target. The official's arm is up. Ian Sunter jumps high into the air. The stadium erupts. Defeat creases the face of a sad and broken Ed now walking lea- dingly towards the concrete dressing room. So young Ian Sunter dash- ed the hopes of the Saskat- chewan Roughriders in the 1972 Grey Cup game that same Green and White crew one week earlier sent the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to the sidelines in the Confer- ence final. The place-kicker. The man who puts that inval- uable three points on the board. It is hard to imagine a more pressure-packed situa- tion as when the kicker comes on to the field to set- tle the contest here and then with one mighty swing of his foot. Over the years goal kicker has played a vital role in the outcome of a foot- ball game. In the contro- versy has surrounded the field- goal and the convert because of the seemingly automatic nature of the play. Some cri- tics argue that kickers have become so deadly that by moving the ball anywhere near the opponents goal the team is practically guar- anteed three points. Yet the Baltimore Colts lost a Super Bowl because of the kicker's inability to put the ball through the uprights. In the Canadian Football the field goal has been of great importance and not especially automatic. The importance of a good place kicker was dramatical- the field- ly evident during the opening week of the current CFL sea- son. Dave Cutler kicked four field goals as the Eskimos dispatched the Blue Bombers to the showers by a 33-22 score. Cutler provided 12 points via the field goal route the margin of vic- tory was eleven. When the Saskatchewan Roughriders invaded Calgary last they came up short in their quest for victory by eight points. Larry Robinson booted three field-goals. When Ham- ilton went down to defeat to Montreal other day was the same intrepid Ian Sunter who provided Hamil- ton with nine points. The field- goal will be of tremendous im- portance once again in 1973. There have been some ex- citing moments provided by those possessing an educated toe. Just about anyone will tell you that the 1954 Grey Cup game was settled by the fumble recovery and 100-yard run by Jackie Parker. Few will remember that Parker's heroics only gave Edmonton a tie with the Alouettes. Bob Dean kicked the convert that gave Edmonton their first Grey Cup. Dean hadn't missed all year. If he had missed the big naturally Dean would have worn the goat horns for life. In the Sskatchewan Roughriders lost in the final to Les Lear and the Calgary Stampeders by a point. Del Wardeen of Regina hit the crossbar when attempting the tying convert. Many stubble- jumpers would like to forget the incredible effort of one Larry Robinson of Calgary in the 1970 Western Final. With a howling providing a chill factor equivalent to forty the ball about six feet wide of the and punched it into the gale and over the crossbar sending the delir- ious Calgarians on their way to a berth in the Grey Cup. Before Robbie was pret- ty inconsistent since then he has been deadly when it has counted. Larry attributes this to learning to relax and take his time. That is the secret to if not eli- the pressure that the kicker must bear. Place kickers usually ac- count for a substantial share of their club's scoring output. Last the top four point- getters in the East were the place-kickers. In the Western five out of the top seven led the with George Reed and Mack Her- ron the only exceptions. Dave Cutler scored fully one-third of Edmonton's points with his toe. He was good on fifty- two per cent of his field goal tries and ninety per cent of his converts. Larry Robinson had the best percentage by being good on 67 per cent of his field-goal attempts. He accounted for thirty per cent of his team's scoring. Al- though Don Jonas only ac- counted for 22 per cent of the Big Blue total he was good on 66 per cent of his field-goal tries. Ted Ger- ala had a 58 per cent aver- age while Saskatchewan's Jack Abendshan had the lowest percentage on field- goals with forty-two per cent. Abendshan attempt- ed more long field-goals than anyone else. Dave Cutler of Edmonton averaged the shortest distance on his tries. The Eastern Conference didn't fare nearly s o well. Gerry Organ of Ottawa was good 58 per cent of the tops in the East. Hamilton's hero Ian Sunter was only able to split the uprights 37 per cent of the time when at- tempting a three pointer. Western place kickers aver- aged fifty three per cent accuracy whereas their East- ern cousins were good 46 per cent of the time. Of the really impor- tant field goals are those that win games. Last year Dave Cutler won games for Edmonton. Abendshan beat Winnipeg out of the playoffs with his effort. He last sent Calgary into a tail-spin from which they never recovered by kicking the game-winning points on the final play. natural- Ian for all his poor accuracy rate kicked the biggest field-goal of his life when he won the Grey Cup for Hamilton last Dec- ember.
