Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HF.RAL.r 23 Revenge was oh so sweet as Rough Riders triumph OTTAWA (CP) Revenge is sometimes sweet and it couldn't have been sweeter for Ottawa Rough Riders Tuesday night when they defeated league-leading Montreal Alouettes 27-14 in an Eastern Football Conference EFC game. The defending Grey Cup champions were picked apart by Montreal quarterback Jimmy Jones and Als, superstar Johnny Rodgers during their last meeting and after leading most of that game, came up on the short end of a 20-17 loss. Lions unbeaten string tested CALGARY (CP) British Columbia Lions lay the only perfect winning record in the Canadian Football League on the line tonight when they meet the Calgary Stampeders. Evansen, Rae lead Argonauts TORONTO (CP) Terry Evanshen and Mike Rae may occupy leading roles tonight when Hamilton Tiger-Cats clash with Toronto Argonauts in an Eastern Football League game at CNE Stadium. Evanshen is anxious to make Argos' regret snubbing him when he was released by Montreal Alouettes. And Rae, who is suffering from an injured index finger, hopes to dispel doubt about his competence as starting quarterback for the Argos. Evanshen, outstanding Canadian in the Canadian Football League in 1967 with Calgary Stampeders and in 1971 with Montreal, was released by the Als before the start of the 1974 season. The 30-year-old wide receiver claims he was in touch with Argonauts after they lost slotback Emory Blake in their first game and appeared to be in need of a pass receiver. "The Argos were supposed to get back to me, but I never heard from said Evan- shen. "A lot of things happened this season and it was a lesson I won't forget." "But I don't want to dwell on the past. There are a lot of positive things I want to do and the best way of showing the fans I'm back is by- performing well on the field." Rae has been practising with the Argos all week, passing with reasonable accuracy, but there is still some doubt that he will be able to handle the ball without discomfort. "We'll play it by said Argos coach John Rauch. "Rae certainly is going to start. Beyond that I don't know." Jim Lindsey will be waiting in the wings. The Ticats beat Argos 29-22 in their first game of the season. That was Hamilton's only win in three starts. Argos record is also 1-2 this year. Both clubs have made a number of changes since their last meeting. B.C. and Montreal Alouettes were both 3-0 until Tuesday when Montreal lost to Ottawa Rough Riders 27-14 and left the Lions standing alone in the all-wins department. A major factor in the game will be weather as Calgary has been deluged with about two inches of rain since Saturday but officials are hopeful things will dry up enough to get the field in shape. Calgary can't look at their opponents record without a touch of envy as the Stampeders are 0-3 with the last 14 season games bar one ending in defeat for the cowboys. "Statistics are for sports says Gary Hobson, Calgary's general manager, when asked ab.out the record. Offensively, Calgary will be looking for the Peter Liske throwing arm to produce yardage while B.C. will expect Lou Harris to do as well as the 201 yards he rushed against Winnipeg last week. Last time Calgary and B.C. met, the contest ended 23-20 for the Lions despite 246 passing yards on Liske's part. Calgary is making defensive changes tonight, with Fred James injured and Gord Stew- art replacing him as well as Lome Sherbina doing some of the work for the ailing Brian Marcil. Sherbina, a rookie the Lions traded to Calgary recently, has harsh words for his former coach. "As much as I've had my heart set on playing in British Columbia there is no way, no way. I'd go back to play for Eagle Keys." said the 22-year- old defensive tackle. "As hard as they recruited to get me, plus the fact they didn't want me talking to anyone else, and then he turns around and swaps me. Well, that is a real personal hurt. "It was a big thing for me to play hometown football, then the roof fell in." Keys has picked up Mike Wilson for his B.C. defence and will likely use Dan Dever to replace Carl Winfrey who has strained knee ligaments from his last stint as linebacker. The CTV network will televise the game in Western Canada beginning at 8 p.m. MDT. EDITOR DIES CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. (AP) Gwilyn S. Brown, 46, an associate editor of Sports Illustrated magazine, died at his home Monday of a brain tumor. CASH FOR YOUR CAR Dunlop Ford will pay you cash for your car if it is one of tho select units we require immediately CONTACTTHE USED CAR BUYER NOW AT At that time it was the second loss in a row for the Riders and rookie coach George Brancato began laying the battle plans for the teams' next meeting. The plans worked and the Riders stifled Rodgers and Jones to upset previously undefeated Montreal and move into sole possession of second place in the EFC. The Riders have four points with a 2-2 won-lost record while Montreal has six points and a 3-1 record. Ottawa end Rhome Nixon caught off two touchdown passes from quarterback Jerry Keeling: The first, a 61- yard pass and run play in the first quarter and the second a 47-yard effort in the second. Gerry Organ picked up 15 points for the Riders on four field goals, two converts and a single on a wide field goal in the first quarter. His field goals came from the 52, 50, 39, and 22-yard lines. Running back Steve Ferrughelli scored the only Montreal touchdown, his first of the year, on a one-yard run in the third quarter. Kicker Don Sweet converted the touchdown and booted field goals from the 52 and the 28- yard line. He also scored a 39-yard single on a wide field goal in the fourth quarter. The Riders controlled the game throughout, displaying the defensive and offensive ability that led them to the top in 1973, much to the pleasure of the fans. The Riders led 8-0 after the first quarter, 21-6 at the half and 24-13 after three quarters. Rider defensive back Al Marcelin intercepted a pass by Rodgers on the first play of the game. Marcelin later intercepted two other Montreal passes, both by Jones. Both teams lost one fumble: one by Jones and the other by Rider quarterback Rick Cassata. Cassata lost the ball when he was injured in the second quarter. He left the game and didn't return. Officials said later that the quarterback may have received a mild concussion but Cassata said he is fine and is ready to play. Brancato said the team used a wider defence to contain Jones and as a result stopping Rodgers, who picked up only 12 yards on passes. Montreal had 22 first downs with a total net offence of 277 yards while Ottawa had a net offence of 351 yards and 13 first downs. The Riders major offensive drive came through the air as Keeling hit receivers on six of 15 passes for 236 yards. Nixon accounted for 168 yards, grabbing five Keeling passes. Before his injury, Cassata threw three passes, one successfully for 21 yards. Jones was good on 21 of 32 passes for 167 yards. But many of the passes were late in the game on desperation plays when the Riders gave up the short passes to protect the deep zone.
