Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 14, 197T THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 11 Los Angeles faces elimination Redskins assured of playoff, dump Rams LOS ANGELES (AP) It was billed as a civil war. And to some it was. The result put George Allen's Washington Red- skins into the National Football League's National Conference playoffs. The 38-2-1 Washington victory Monday night left Los Angeles' Rams, Allen's team for five years before he was fired and moved on to Washington, with a longshot opportunity for the playoffs. II. was Allen's first game against the Rams since he was fired after making winners of the Los Angeles club. He said afterward that "there's no bit- terness with my relationship with the Rams. I'm glad to win and glad to be back in the Coli- seum although it's my first time in the visitors' dressing room." The Rams, under former UCLA coach Tommy Prolbro, were rated one touchdown bet- ter before the kickoff. The pre- game talk was Washington de- fence vs. Los Angeles offence.

So far this season with the Blues, the 31-year-old native of Toronto has scored five goals and seven assists for 12 points. Roberto, a 22-year-old native of Niagara Falls, Ont., has been a part-time performer for the Canadiens for much of this sea- son with only three goals and too assists in 27 games. Going into this season, Roberto appeared in 47 NHL games with Wenzel and Keith Jliyas h i r o notched singletons. Rapiano replied for the Hawks in the first period.

He said his major problem is "timo." and acknowledged that the "WHA could conceivably start without me." Sliayne has two suits pending that he hopes will clear the way for him to enter the proposed 12-team league. The first is against Nassau County, where he hoped his team could play in Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Hemp- stead, Long Island. The second is a S33-million anti-trust suit against the National Hockey League, filed when the latter agreed Nov. 9 to expand to At- lanta and the Long Island site for next season. As a result of j the NHL move, Shayne claims he has been shut out of the Long Island site. lice. But the 31-year-old "No. 2" Washington quarterback, play- ing ahead of the mending Sonny Jurgcnsen, threw three touch- down passes as the Redskins ran up their highest point total of the season. Washington could win the Eastern Division on Sunday if it ricfcals Cleveland Browns and first-place Dallas Cowboys lose to St. Louis Cardinals. But, with it's 9-3-1 record, Washington is assured of the NFC wildcard playoff berth going to the club with the best runner-up record. The Rams, 7-5-1, meanwhile, are through for the season un- less they beat or tie Pittsburgh Sleelers and Detroit Lions unset San Francisco '49ers Sunday. The Miters moved half a game ahead of Los Angeles when the Rams lost to Washington. After Curt Knight tied his per- sonal distance mark with a wind-aided 52-yard field goal to tie the score at 10-10 in the sec- ond quarter, the Rams drove to the Washington 19. On fourth and two, the Rams passed un a field goal attempt and quarter- back Roman Gabriel was slopped by Pardee one yard short of a first down. Allen, considered the more conservative of the two coaches, made his gamble after defen- sive back Ted Vactor blocked a 29-yard field goal attempt and Kilmer capitalized with a 32- yard touchdown pass to Clifton McNeil for a 17-10 lead. Vaclor, a three-year veteran, recovered a fumble on the next kickoff at the Los Angeles four. Including an automatic first down on a defensive holding penalty against the Rams, it look Washington seven plays to score, with Larry Brown carry- ing in on fourth down and football less than a foot from the end zone. Jlosl of a capacity crowd of and perhaps even some of the Redskins expected Allen to order a field goal but instead he went for the touchdown. A Gabriel interception, his first of three in the game, set up what proved to be the win- ning touchdown in the third quarter. Mike Bass outfought Lance Rentzel for the ball at the Rams' 45 and three plays later Kilmer threw a five-yard touchdown pass to Roy Jeffer- son for a 31-10 lead. The Rams struck first when Kilmer's former UCLA team- male. Kermit Alexander, inter- cepted his pass and raced 82 yards for a touchdown. But Washington struck quickly when Kilmer hil Jeffer- son on the Rams' 27 and Jeffer- son beat defenders Jimmy Net- tles and Dave Elmendorf on a 70-yard touchdown play.
