Lions. It was the 107th time'in his 11-year career .that Reed has lugged the ball to paydirt and it surpassed 'the previous record of 106 which he held jointly with Jimmy another great fullback who toiled with Cleve- land Browns of the National League. who received con- gratulations his team- mates and wild applause of the hometown said the record meant a lot to him but there is another that will please him a little That record is Brown's career yardage mark of Reed moved 60 yards closer to that total Wednesday on 10 carries and now is just 81 short of the record Brown set over a nine- year career. The loss left the Lions tied for last place in the West with Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Both are winless in two starts. who have handed the Lions both their are tied for first with Edmonton Es- kimos but the Riders have played one more game. They suffered their first loss to Cal- gary Stampeders last week. Ron Lancaster picked up where he left off in the Riders' season-opener against the Lions by going to the air and riddling thie B.C. defence. He threw three touchdown strikes to Bob Tom Campana and Rick Eber as he completed 22 of 31 passes for 259 yards. He was spelled off in the fourth period by Pearce who was Zero-for-two in the pass department. The other Rider touchdown was a first for rookie Terry ych who filled in for Reed in the latter stages of the game. Jack Abendschan converted all five and put his inconsistent toe to a 48-yard field goal to round out the Rider scoring. The place-kicking was non-ex- istent for B.C. after Ted Gerela aggravated B hamstring injury while missing a convert on the Lions' first touchdown. Bob Friend and Eric Guthrie tried to fill in but neither could find the distance. Guthrie was credited with a single on a wide field-goal attempt from 27 yards which was conceded. Meanwhile in the shrugging off in- juries that took four starters out of the defeated Ot- tawa Rough Riders 19-6 Wednesday night in an Eastern Football Conference game. Coach John Rauch had to come up with replacements for quarterback Joe de- fensive lineman Jim Corrigall and linebackers Steve Smear and Tom Surlas. paid a helluva price for this said shaking his heed as he scanned the in- jury list after the game. The Argo second in as many both against the set the stage for next Wednesday's confrontation with Montreal who also have won both their starts against Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Eric Allen and Mike Eben caught touchdown passes and Zenon Andrusyshyn kicked a field two singles and two to account for the Argo points. Gerry Organ kicked two field goals for Ot- tawa. None of the Toronto injuries appeared but it was not known after the game how many of the four would be ready to play in the Alouette game. INJURY HURTS PASSING Corrigall suffered a fractured the two linebackers had leg and Theismann was reported hobbling from a toe injury. Theismann's injury made it difficult for him to plant his foot on passing plays and he was having trouble keeping his passes low and on target.
