Gerela And Males Belt Stampeders A pass from Jonas on the Ed monton 12-yard line was tippec by Eskimo linebacker Ken For guson into the hands of flanke Tom Bland in the end zone. Early in the second quarter Edmonton got a first down on the Toronto eight-yard line afte the Argos were called for pas interference. Quarterback Dor Trull bounced one pass pass of the goal post before connecting the next attempt to end Tom Nettles in the end zone. Punter Dave Mann regained the lead for Toronto shortly after, when his 50-yard lack went for a single and linebacker Mike Blum added to the Argo momentum by picking off a Trull pass to set them up on the Edmonton 40-yard line. Quarterback Tom Wilkinson took over the club and five plays later fired a 10-yard pass over the middle to flanker Jim Thorpe on the Edmonton goal line. With -Jonas collecting his sec- ond convert, the Argos were leading 15-7 at half-time. The Eskimos came back In the third quarter to move the ball inside the Toronto 10-yard line where they started their six plays of frustration. A pass to Nettles went incom- plete but fullback Alan Pitcaith- ley got the first down to the To- ronto seven-yard line. The next play produced a roughing pen- alty against the Argos and Ed- monton first down on the To- ronto three. ARGOS GAIN CONTROL The Argos look over the ball at that point after stopping too more rushing attempts by Pit- caithley and a pass attempt to end Sam Campbell in the end zone. Jonas widened the Toronto lead with a single on a field goal attempt from 36 yards in the fourth quarter before Trull, helped by two more Argo penal- ties, got down to the one-yard line where he plunged across for the touchdown. I Dave Cutler converted both Edmonton touchdowns but his 51-yard field goal attempt in the second quarter went wide and a 53-yard try in the last minutes of play was short. TruE was good on 17 of 38 passes attempted for 286 yards but the Eskimos rushing ac- counted for only 51 yards against 160 by the Argos. Jonas completed six of 12 passes for 110 yards and Wilkin- son six of 11 for 64 yards while halfback Bill Symons led the Toronto rushing with 73 yards in 15 carries. Flanker Bobby Taylor and end Mel Profit, both recovering from leg injuries, finally got off the Argo bench but were used I sparingly. VANCOUVER (CP) A dsf- ence that was tough when it had o be and place-kicker Ted Ger- cla were the key Factors Thurs- day night as British Columbia Liions thrilled their largest :iome-town crowd in five years jy beating Calgary Stampeders 27-13. Gerela kicked four fileld goals -including shots of 52, 46, and 38 a single and con- verts on touchdowns by fullback Jim Evenson and halfback A. D. Whilfield as Lions fans roared. The victory moved Lions into a second-place tie in the West- em Football Conference with points behind Sas- katchewan gained a measure of revtenge for a 16-9 loss to the Stampeders at Calgary Aug. 10. Larry Robinson kicked field goals of 29 and 47 yards for Cal- gary and converted Stamps' only touchdown by Hugh Mc- Kiiinis. Lions' defence picked off four passes by Calgary quarterback Jerry Keeling, the West's lead- ing passer, and stiffened to stop two of five third-down gambles at crucial moments. PASSING POOR Keeling, badgered all night by defensive linemen Bill Whisler, John Stucky and Wayne Dennis, was frequently off the mark with his passing, completing 12 of 30 attempts. "Those fans saw the hardest hitting game they're ever going to said Lions coach Jackie Parker afterwards. "Our guys just stuck everybody they saw." He also lauded Calgary's su- perlative linebacker, Wayne Hams: "He must have made a thou- sand tackles." Robinson kicked a 28-yard field goal 01 Calgary's first se- quence of plays to give the Stamps thle lead for the only time in the game. Lions went ahead to stay later in the first quarter, marching 57 yards in five plays for the touchdown. Evenson swept 13 yards around left end to com- plete the drive, which featured a 14-yard pass from quarter- back Paul Brothers to Whilfield, a 22-yard scamper by Brothers and a 12-yard crack by Whit- field. Robinson narrowed the mar- gin to 7-6 with his 47-yard field goal early in the s e c o n c quarter. But Gierela replied with his 38-yarder to make it 10-6 for Lions at the half, after a pass interception by linebacker George Juggum gave B.C. the ball at midfield. A 43-yard pass play from Brothers to flanker Rhome Nixon set the stage for Gerela's 52-yard field goal mid-way in the third quarter. He added 21-yard three-pointer early in the fourth. Then Lions' hyperactive pass defence contributed to Calgary's only touchdown as defenders Jerry Bradley and Rich Robin- son were called for interference on two consecutive plays. The penalties netted the Stampeders 43 yards and a first down on the B.C. three-yard line. McKinnis cracked over on the first try. The score was 17-13 for Lions when Keeling, attempting to pick up five yards on a third-down roll-out, was stopped a yard short, turning the ball over to Lions at the Calgary 47. Three plays later, Gerela booted a field goal off the 46. On Calgary's first play follow ing the field goal, linebacker G r e e n a r d Poles intercepted Reeling's pass and rambled 47 yards to the Calgary one-yard j line. Whitfield plunged over and Gerela converted to put it out of Calgary's reach. Calgary had the statistical edge, making 21 first downs, 181 yards rushing and 154 passing, for a net offence of 335 yards.' Lions had 16 first downs, 183 yards passing and 147 on the ground, a net of 330. Brothers completed nine of his passes, with no intercep- tions. Wayne Holm, who replaced Keeling at quarterback in Cal- gary's last series of plays, threw one incomplete pass. Evenson picked up 65 yards on 14 caivics to give him a total of 378 yards for the season, sec- ond in Hie west only to George Reed of Saskatchewan, who has 402. Whitfield picked up 56 yards and is third in the west with 259. McKinnis caught three passes for 51 yards and ran for Calgary. Loo Taylor had 57 yards rushing. Yankees, Braves Triumph" Hurlers Turn Sluggers By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Mel Stolllcmyre and Ron switched their talents to slugging, and the right-handed pitchers came out with a pair of j victories. Stotllemyre took liis frustra- tions out against Minnesota, rip- ping a two-run, seventh-inning liple that enabled the New York Yankees to beat the Twins, West Division leaders of :he American League, 4-3 Thursday night. Reed, Atlanta's tall curve- sailer, drilled a run-scoring sin- gle in the middle of a three-run second inning as the Braves rimmed the Philadelphia Phil- lies 6-2 in the only other major league game. Keed also came out with a no-decision in an exchange of blows with teammate Rico Carty prior to Wednesday night's game, the Atlanta Jour- nal reported. The incident between Carty, the major league's leading hit- ter with a .357 average and Reed, now 6-5 after missing half of the season with a separated shoulder, occurred in Uie Braves' dressing room and in- volved the removal of Little League bats by Carty from Heed's locker. Club officials confirmed the incident but said: "It was just a case of a couple of guys getting a little mad. It happens with all clubs sooner or later." Carty previously had been involved in a fight Hank Aaron aboard a plane in 1967. Stottlemyre, 12-10, who was thrown out of Wednesday night's game against the Twins when he disputed a call from the bench, held the Twins to seven hits and all three runs in seven innings. Lindy McDaniel stopped Minnesota over the final two frames. Leo Cardenas drove in a pair of Minnesota runs with a homer and sacrifice fly and George Mitterwald socked a homer for the Twins, now five games in front of California. Felix Millan knocked in a pair of runs for the Braves with a single and sacrifice; fly and Reed stymied the Phils on seven hits for his second straight triumph. Carty had a double in the seventh and scored on an error.
