Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Auguit 1973 surprise at the coast Lions' running attack sinks helpless Eskimos VANCOUVER Before Tuesday night's Western Foot- ball Conference game against Edmonton head coach Eagle Keys of British Columbia Lions juggled his offensive line. It must have because with the forward troops tearing chunks out of the Edmonton de- the Lions pounded the Eskimos 30-11 with one of the most bruising running games seen in Empire Stadium in yoars. Only fans turned but they were richly rewarded as the two teams put on a dis- play of hitting football that be- came offensively exciting in the fourth quarter. The big change for Keys was at where Curtis Wester was brought in to become the third offensive guard in as many games. He played pulling out to lead sweeps by running backs Monroe Musso and Lou as the Lions ran up 315 yards and four touchdowns along the ground. Musso got two majors on runs of two and 25 Eley got one on a ramble around right end from 30 yards out and Har- ris got the only touchdown of the first half on a slashing seven-yard run. Ted Gerela added three con- verts and a field goal. The on the other couldn't get unable to put together a sus- tained offence. The Eskimos got only one point in the first three quarters against B.C.'s on Dave Cut- ler's errant field goal but made things interesting in the fourth quarter when backup quarterback Bruce Lemmer- man hit tight end Tyrone Walls from five yards out with a five- yard scoring toss on a third- and-goal gamble to make the score 20-11. But the Lions moved for Eley's touchdown and the field goal. Cutler earlier got a field goal from 12 yards away. But the Eskimos got only 14 first downs in the game as starting quarterback Tom Wil- rushed hard by the B.C. front was pressured into throwing completing only seven of 18 passes. Lem- who entered the game in the fourth was more completing five of seven. Edmonton got 287 yards in of- 165 along the in- cluding Gene Foster's 58-yard run around left end that set up their only touchdown. The L'.ons had made changes on defence and the two new Four former Lions kept uway from coast media EDMONTON Ed- monton Eskimos coach Ray Jauch has prevented membars of the Vancouver media from interviewing four Edmonton players who previously played with British Columbia Lions.

ALL SALES FINAL-ALTERATIONS EXTRA Phone 327-7610 Graham Kelly 'THERE is an old axiom in football that defense is simpler than offense and is .therefore more advanced dur- ing the early stages of a sea- son. The reasons for this is simple a successful offense demands good timing which only comes with playing to- gether. This old axiom has certainly taken a beating dur- ing the games played throughout the first two weeks of the 1973 CFL sea- son. The defensive-minded ball clubs have not won the major- ity of the eleven gamss play- ed so far. In fact the teams that have been able to show some offense have come the same is true with the Ottawa Rough Rid- ers. Coach Jjck Gotta figured he had the world by the tail when he signed B.C.'s brutal basher of many Jim Evansen. Genial Jack just drooled at the thought of Art Cantxell and Big Jim running in tandem in the Ottawa back- field. But due to the old in- jury which has emerged once again as a spoiler. Can- trell and the worthy fullback have played less than a quar- ter of football together. Add the failure of sometime quar- terback Rick Cassata to move the and like their favored rivals in find themselves winless and languishing in the cellar of the Eastern Con- ference. Once a club in mid-ssason form offensive- in the wild Western the clubs with the offense have man- aged to come away with the marbles on all occasions ex- cept one. The exception would be the contest between the and the Calgary Stanipeders. Calgary mounted a fierce pass rush against Ron Lan- forcing the Rider pivot to cough up the ball via the interception route. Jim Fred James and John Helton had a picnic against the Rider setting up the situations that result- ed in game winnLx points. Tim new to the offen- sive line had Ms problems handling the illustrat- ing the difficulties that guards and tackles new to the posi- tion have to face. Roth ex- plained it to me this defensive line you don't think. All you have to do is react. People think pass blocking is simple just lay back and wait for the rush but it isn't that way at all. There are so many more I gathered that the Bomber mentor isn't too optimistic. have a lot of new faces in the line-up. Naturally they make mistakes with and assignments. They get over eager and drop the ball. In time we're going to have a real respectable ball club but that may be some distance down the Besides the problems al- ready Coach Spa- vital has been anything but pleased with a schedule that had his club play three games in eleven days. don't have time to prepare he complained. club gets emotionally and physically tired as well. That leads to injuries. of injuries have changed the entire picture for The injury bug hit Winni- peg hardest offensively. It was this lack of offense that led to the defeat at the hands of the Eskimos on a rain- soaked field in Edmonton. Once again it was a story of away successful. That Is why Jhe Montreal Alouettes sur- prised the experts in the early going by humbling ttie migh- ty Grey Cup champion Ham- ilton Tiger-Cats. Both clubs showed that they have very sound defenses. But Montreal with John Harvey and John- ny plus excellent leadership from quarterback George had the offense to break the game open and put those all-important points up on the board. Hamilton still must come up with an replacement for retired back Dave Buchanan. Until they muster a running game to match their passing the Tabbies from Steeltown will be in trouble. the Scullers of have taken the measure of the CFL entry from the capi- tal city. When I saw Toronto play in I was tremendously impressed with the number of ways the Argos had to score points. Eric Allen speeding down the departed Leon McQuay cut- ting a swath through the Stampeder Bill Joe that club has it all. But still you have to be surprised that they were able to score forty-four points against one of the toughest defenses in the league. Coach is optimistic that his offense 'till soon match the experted prowess of his rock-ribbed defenders and bring honor and glory to Ottawa this year. things you have to learn on Jim of Winnipeg figures that it will take quite awhile for all the new faces on his offensive ball club to jell as a unit and play effec- tive football. Doom and gloom was the order of the day when I talked to him the day after his Bombers wiped out Calgary 30-7. He had just received news that rookie Ca- nadian back Tom Walker and Canadian lineman Ray Wat- rin were out for the season with injuries. means I'm going to have to replace them with imports. You just can't replace good Canadian ball players once the season is under Spavital has had his problems with injur- ies right from the outset of training camp. added to the departure of Jim Thorpe and Mack of presents Spavital with a team that will have to scramble like the devil for a playoff spot rather than the solid first place club he coached last year. the Eskies being able to show a little more offense at this stage of the season. not all is bad news on the banks of the Red River. Coach Spavital is very happy with the play of his and so he should be after their display against Cal- gary. He also feels that Stan Brown will overcome early go- ing jitters and errors and emerge as one of the really fine backs in the CFL. Up in Coach Ray Jauch is very happy with the progress his team has made defensively. come a long way with our defense. I didn't think that boys like Sam Britz would adjust so well to their new situation. And Bob Hause has done a terrific job for us on Jauch is sitting in pretty enviable position. His defense is his offense is probably the most potent in the West. Tom Wilkinson and Bruce Lemmerman pro- vide them with the best one- two quarterbacking punch in the country.
