"I'm just happy to said Keys, grinning after his club turned a big lirst-quarlcr lead and four pass interceptions into their first regular-season vic- tory, leaving Bombers winless in three outings. Phillips, a 22-year-old rookie wlio leaves Ihe long field goal tries to veteran Ted Gerela, connected on all five attempts, the longest from the 29 and the shortest a 15-yarder, and con- verted two touchdowns. The converts were on Jim Young's 47-yard scoring pass- and-mn play and Jim Evenson's one-yard plunge that gave Lionb a 17-2 edge at Ihc end of the first quarter. Phillips conceded a safety touch in lhat quarter. GIVEAWAYS 11UKT Bomber head coach Jim Spavital, noting the four inter- ceptions on quarterback Don Jonas, said the learn just could not expect lo win. giving the ball so oflc-n. One that hurt particularly was by George Anderson. At that point, in the thil'd quarter. Bombers were down and had pushed into scor- ing territory on short passes to Bob Larose and Jim Thorpe. Anderson snuffed the threat, grabbing Lho ball on Ihe one and running it to Ihe Winnipeg 25. The turnover did not lead di- rectly lo any scoring, as Even- son fumbled soon after and de- fensive tackle Ray Watrin fell on the ball. But Bombers as a team did not recover from the missed chance. Spavital agreed that Jona.s seemed hot and cold, connecting on 5 of 29 pass attempts for 190 yards gained, the same yardage that quarterback Paid Brothers earned with nine of 17 tries. The Winnipeg coach said his receivers dropped too many and one led lo Young's touchdown. Greg Findlay made anolhcr. Lions, who went through the game without giving up an in- terception, had tlic edge on the ground with Young and fivenson rolling up 75 and 74 yards, re- spectively. Bombers gained yards rushing, compared with i B.G'.'s 174. The fans saw Bombers come to life in the second quarler when Paul Markle got hvo touchdowns in less than a minute, Ihe first a 25-yard loss from Jonas and the second a shorter one lhat halfback Bob Kracmer pitched on a liandoff. Jona.c converted both. But Lions kept Bombers off the Scoreboard in the second half, while adding nine points to their own score. Both teams made two fumbles and lost pos- session once and there was little lo choose in punting hclween Bombers' 41.6 yai'ds and Lions' 40. BRITISH COLUMBIA WINIPEO 11 Wpg. B.C.
