Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, Augutt 28, 1974 THE Graham Kelly "We'll be going into a real hornet's nest in Winnipeg1" With those words assistant coach Dick Monroe and head man Jim Wood began to direct their attention to the Blue Bombers of Winnipeg and their meeting with the Calgary Stampeders tonight Calgary takes a one win and four loss record to the Manitoba capital while the host club is one win and three losses At stake is the Western Conference cellar An un- enviable position to say the least for both clubs "Winnipeg always plays tough against continued Monroe, while sampling one of Senatot Molson's favorite libations "They've looked pretty hopeless the last few outings but when they get it together, watch out they'll be hard to beat1" Both clubs are desperate for a win, both are having trou- ble keeping the howling wolves away from their respective doors, and both have little reason to look at the rest of the CFL campaign with any degree of hope Calgary had just finished dropping a 10-8 contest to the Saskatchewan Roughnders when Monroe and Wood began to think ahead to their next league encounter against Winnipeg This is a game that Calgary rightfully regards as a complete must win situation for them After visiting the scenic Red River city, the Cowboys return home to face the awesome Edmonton Eskimos After that they head east to play Ottawa and Hamilton In the past, the Eastern swing has proven disastrous for the foothills club, with the 1974 promising no change in fare Therefore, with three extremely tough contests facing the Red and White, Jim Wood wants to get two points under his belt tonight Calgary was living proof of an old football adage when they succumbed to the George and Ronnie show a week ago tonight If you don't cash in on your opportunities, you're likely going to lose because you only get so many Calgary went on two long marches in the first quarter against the Riders only to come away with a single' point Larry Robinson missed a field goal, and Pete Wysocki blocked another field-goal attempt Wysocki and Richardson comprise a dynamic and deadly duel against op- posing field-goal teams having blocked two in a season that is only one third complete The two streak in against the blocking halfback (in this case Rudy Linterman) Richardson took Linterman and Wysocki took the ball Against Edmonton it was the other way around At any rate, Calgary had a potential 14 points or, at least an expected six points, but came away with only one That was the old ball game Jim Wood commented, "If you had told me before the start of the game that we'd hold Saskatchewan to 10 points, I would have felt pretty good I would have thought we'd come away with the win As it turned out, the Stampeder defence played an excellent game holding the Mean Green to one touchdown, a 44-yard pass and run play from Ron Lancaster to Steve Mazurak at the 13- becond mark of the second quarter That mjor demonstrates again how the poor Calgary Stampeders just can't buy a break no matter how hard they try On that play defensive genius Dick Monroe had the whole thing figured out "I knew what Ronnie was going to do on that play I just knew it1 So I shifted the defence out of a zone into man to man on that side Pyne took off after him and was doing his darndest to catch up He just lost sight of the ball at the last moment, and Mazurak turn- ed the wrong way If the kid had turned the right way, Pyne would have knocked it down Meanwhile in the winning dress- ing room, the diminutive Lancerter admitted that he had made a mistake I threw the ball to the wrong side I made a mistake on that play but we got a touchdown out of it Good for you, Ronnie Calgary did everything right Saskatchewan wrong, but the Riders got the touchdown Jim Wood got a headache The fans and media in Calgary are beginning to mutter about changes being made to bring about some wins Per- sonally I don t think those people know a good deal about foot- ball Rogers Lehew did a poor recruiting job He ran the club over the winter, not Jim Wood The assistant general manager and director of player personnel George Hanse, is a plus for team playing Calgary Hansen has done a lousy recruiting job as well Those who want to see wholesale changes made on the Stampeders should realize that there just isn't a whole herd of good football players waiting around for a call from Cow- town The NHL players strike dried up cuts that would usually be available by now, and the World Football League drained off an enormous quantity of football talent New people in any number just aren t there for the asking In the meantime the Stampeders are playing with a tremendous spirit In many years that I have been associated with Canadian football I have seldom seen a spirit on a football team as good as that in Calgary But, "you can't maintain that spirit through too many losses, 'said Wood But it's still there Dick Monroe commented, I just don't know how some of those fellows are doing it We ve played five games, and we've been in every one of them Those guys have played their hearts out I wonder how long they can keep it up9" The simple fact of the matter is that Calgary just doesn't have the players They have the poorest front four in years with a hobbled Craig Komzan, and a great but double-teamed John Helton Lome Sherbima and Gord Stewart just aren't good enough Privately, the Calgary coaching staff will admit they don t have the horses But the vultures should get off the coaches back If you give Wood time, he'll produce a winning team in Calgary and sooner than a lot of people think Wood is first class all the way both as a football man and as a human being It is because of Wood that his ball players are playing way over their heads If things look bad in Calgary, they look just as bad or worse in Winnipeg Rookie coach Bud Riley has made wholesale changes in his club hoping to find a winning combination He has trouble at quarterback wheie Don Jonas just can't seem to regain his confidence and be a leader on the ball club The defence is green and bad, the kicking game atrocious The only real bright spots are Jim Bledsoe and rookie Tom Scott from Washington State Riley eventually will scare some people, but not yet At this point in time, the difference between Calgary and Winnipeg is that the Stampeders have played very well in losing causes, whereas the Blue Bombers have looked bad all the time As we head into the Labor Day weekend, it looks like a two- horse race between Edmonton and Saskatchewan Watch for the Eskimos to beat the Stampeders, and the Riders to triumph over Winnipeg Any other result would be a major upset Tonight watch for Jim Wood and the Calgary Stampeders pick up their second win of the season Royals in top spot The Lethbndge Royals mov- ed into first place in the Se- cond Division of the Calgary Senior Soccer League with two wins over the weekend In Lethbndge Saturday the Royals blanked Calgary Vikings 6-0 on two goals apiece from Frank Sunano and Mike Burla John Stropnik and Ivan Smiljanec added singletons while Billy Rab picked up the shutout Rab, and his defensive unit of Alvin Tietz and Alex Dudas, were the mainstay of the local team once again Sunday as they travelled to Calgary and downed the Sabres 4-2 Angelo Mauro kicked two goals for the winners Sunday while Smiljanec and Sunano added singletons Calgary scorers were Ron Moppett and Ron Knipschield The Royals now travel to Fernie, B C to compete in a tournament which they have won the past two years BUSNIUK SIGNS MONTREAL (CP) Centre Mike Busniuk, who played last season with University of Denver, has signed with Montreal Canadiens the National Hockey League club announc- ed Miss Blalock adds another victory Field goal blacker If there ever was a field goal biocker this fellow has to be it Dahlgren provided one bright spot Track event drew very few WINNIPEG (CP) One Canadian native record was broken Tuesday at the Cana- dian amateur track and field championships that ended its first day under darkness before practically empty stands Jay Dahlgren of Vancouver who came out of a two-year retirement and trained for three weeks prior to the meet, produced one of the few bright spots She broke her own Canadian record in the javelin with a throw of 56 88 metres, 2 22 metres better than her previous best achieved in 1968 The only other individual to produce a record performance was Marjone Bailey of Rich mond B C who won the women s 100 metres in 11 2 seconds That was one-tenth of a second faster than the ex isting native mark set in 1968 by Irene Piotrowski and tied by Patti Loverock of Van- couver in 1971 and Miss Bailey earlier this year However, the time will not stand as a new mark because of a strong favoring wind Miss Bailey finished well ahead of Miss Loverock who beat Lynn Kellond of Bur- lington Ont, across the finish line Hugh Fraser of Ottawa fin- ished strongly in the men's 100 metres to nip Marv Nash of Toronto and Robert Martin of Pans Ont Fraser finished in 10 1 seconds, Nash and Martin in 10 2 with Nash getting se- cond place I had a bad start, there was a long wait before the gun went off' Fraser said I was sleepy coming out of the blocks and I ve blown a lot of races this year that way I come out behind and get tight The 22-year-old turned it on over the final 40 metres to nip Nash at the wire John Knifton of the United States finished three minutes ahead of Marcel Jobin of Mon- treal in
