Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, August LETHBRIDGE Bombers vacate basement with 17-point last quarter WINNIPEG (CP) To a happy Don Jonas, it was like the glory years of 1971 and 1972 when Winnipeg's aerial scoring machine was feared across the land "In the second said the voluble quarterback, "we'd go into the huddle knowing exactly what we wanted to do and everybody knew we could do it The Blue Bombers did it Wednesday squeezing out a 31-30 Western Football Conference victory over Calgary Stampeders for their second successive win after three season-opening losses It took a blocked convert by charging Merv Walker after a final Calgary touchdown to prevent a tie It appeared the Stampeders might get a final chance when the Blue Bombers faced third down on their 18-yard line and 22 seconds left in the game But Jonas, remembering an Halted Dave Knechtel pins Calgary's Peter Liske to Winnipeg turf Wednesday night as the Bombers downed the Stamps 31-30. Pit men, deep backs to get recognition MONTREAL (CP) Offen- sive linemen and defensive backs, long overlooked in the post-season selection of Cana- dian Football League per- formers for the top annual awards, will have prizes of their own to work for this year D W McNaughton, piesi- dent of Canadian Schenley Distilleries Ltd announced Wednesday two major changes in the awards system the company has employed since 1953 A new award has been es tablished to honor the out- standing offensive lineman in the nine team CFL as well as a change in format whereby the best defensive player in the league also will be honored The new award for the out- standing offensive lineman will carry a reward of It brings to five the number of award categories now in force In addition, the over-all value of the awards has been raised to 500, an increase of 500 above last year's level The monetary award for the outstanding player, won last yea1, by George McGowan of the Western Football Confer- ence Edmonton Eskimos, has been increased to from this year The value of awards for the outstanding defensive replacing the former outstanding lineman for the out- standing Canadian player have both been raised to from the of other years The rookie-of-the-year Taber archer shows well TABER (HNS) -John Hor- vath of Taber is one of eight archers representing Canada in World Field and Hunter championships in Yugoslavia A gold medalist in the re- cent Southern Alberta Summer Games, he qualified for a berth on the Canadian team by placing third over all in the aggregate of the Canadian fita, hunter, and field rounds In the Canadian cham- pionships he placed second in the field hunter round and first in the international round Following the world cham- pionships in Yugoslavia, Mr Horvath will be going to Puerto Rica for an inter- national competition COMPETITIVE SWIMMERS to join the LETHBRIDGE AMATEUR SWIM CLUB Outdoor Training Begins Sept. p.m. CIVIC CENTRE TRACK will be worth in 1974, compared with in earlier years In addition, McNaughton said greater emphasis has been placed on the out- standing player award, with this year's runner-up to receive instead of Those second in voting for the other trophies will continue to receive The new awards for the out- standing offensive lineman and outstanding defensive player followed discussions between representatives of the distillery, its award board of trustees, CFL com- missioner Jake Gaudaur and league general managers, as well as members of the CFL Players Association The group concluded that, because of constant changes in tactics and style in the CFL, revisions were necessary to make equal awards for offensive linemen and all defensive players The former lineman-of-the- year award had become almost the exclusive property of defensive linemen and linebackers, with offensive linemen drawing slim con- sideration in the voting This was shown in a review of the awards of the last 14 seasons Roger Nelson, who played both ways at tackle for the Eskimos in 1959, was the last offensive lineman to win the trophy The new award for the out- standing offensive lineman will be limited to competition among tackles, guards and centres All players on a defensive team will be eligible for the outstanding defensive player prize ill-timed punt by Toronto Argonauts in Winnipeg Stadium a week earlier, con- sumed every possible second in the final huddle and sent Jim Poulos on a time- consuming sweep to run out the clock The win pulled the Bombers out of a last-place tie with the Stampeders who now have won only once in six starts Action resumes Labor Day afternoon with the Bombers visiting Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina while the Stampeders are host to Edmonton Eskimos The Roughriders are tied for first with British Columbia Lions, each with four wins and two losses, while the Eskimos have three wins and two de- feats Bob Larose, John Bledsoe and Dave Bailey scored on touchdown passes from Jonas who was good on 20 of 33 attempts for 307 yards Walt McKee contributed 13 points with three field goals, three converts and a single For Calgary, an equally im pressive Peter Liske fired touchdown passes to Robert Frazier and Rick Galbos and two to Tom Forzani Larry Robinson kicked a field goal, a single and two converts Liske completed 18 of 38 at- tempts for 311 yards and the Stampeders appeared headed for at least a tie after Forzani's 22-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter until Walker broke through on the convert attempt An earlier convert try by Robinson hit the crossbar Calgary coach Jim Wood said he couldn't fault an offence which put 30 points on the board and didn't feel his defence was caught seriously out of position on Winnipeg's scoring plays It's just that Winnipeg could do no wrong in the se- cond half The turning point, he re- flected came when Liske and Galbos fumbled away the ball between them leading to the Blue Bombers' winning touch- down by Bledsoe Each team rolled up 17 first downs but Calgary had the ter- ritorial edge with 182 yards rushing compared with 91 for Winnipeg and 487 yards total offence against 374 The Stampeders had a 7-4 edge after a stuttering first half and led 17-14 going into the final quarter Winnipeg coach Bud Riley gave full credit to his offen- sive team who "just wouldn't quit out there The game- ending sweep by Poulos, who has generally been rated a dis- appointment and made his only appearance of the night, was our best of the year WINNIPEG 31, CALGARY 30 Cat Wpg. 17 17 182 91 311 307 487 374 18-38 20-33 0 1 10 34 9 43 1-1
