Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THI UTHBRID6I HtRAtD July .ayofibertii to Saskatclmoan Roughriders crt, to wsacteuxm Middle clubs cause grey hairs for selectors By BRUCE UiVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor It's "if" time in the Western Football Conference period in which the five clubs engage in exhibition encounters while everyone tries to guess how they'll stack up after the 16 regular-season games are nvei-. Jf you're impressed by 14-2 iron-lost records, you're proba- bly picking Saskatchewan were 14-2 last season-to come through again with Winnipeg Blue Bornbers- up the I burgh Sleclcrs until the Lions after the exhibition schedule to New Mr. rln any drastic Cutting. the York, is fighting to lake who were rear. The grey hair comes with hying to separate the three clubs in the Eskimos, Calgary Stampeders and British Columbia Lions in order of last year's finish. Edmonton and Calgary showed identical 9-7 records, the Esks taking second spot by vir- tue of a better showing, head- to-head, than the Stamps. B.C. missed the playoffs with a 6-10 record. And it's B.C., with the worst defensive record and the sec ond-best offensive record in the West last year, that's the ques- tion mark-can they knock over Edmonton or Calgary for that third playoff spot? On the assumption that they should take Edmonton, B.C. could make it, with the teams finishing in this order: Saskatchewan, Calgary, B.C., Edmonton and Winnipeg. And since you'll want reasons, let's lake them in that order. Saskatchewan Roughridcrs Head coach Dave Skrien in herited a set club when Eagle Keys moved to B.C. Included among his asseis is Ron Lan- caster, the quarterback voted C a n a d a's outstanding player last S'ear. Lancaster had surgery on his throwing arm during the off- season but was throwing hard and well during the all-star came. Sensational Silas McKinnie will be at split end and versatile Al Ford at wingback. Halfback Bob Pierce Is expected back from service in the United States Array. But Skrien has Bobby Thompson is limping; all-star centre Ted Urness has retired; defensive tackle Ed McQuarters lost his left eye in a home workshop accident; George Reed is recovering from a knee operation. But Slcrien isn't standing pat have an entirely new playbook this he says. Luiebacking has been a Sas- katchewan problem, but, says the coach, "I think it will be better this year with either Wally Dempsey or Charlie Col- lins as middle linebacker.'' Of McQuarters, he says: "He's talking as though he may come back at some point this year. I don't see why he couldn't be as good as before. Without him in there the de- fence looks entirely different." Prospects for 1971? j "I don't think many teams are going to go 14-2. I'm not as concerned with a regular-play record as I am about a good playoff record." Which prompted one observer to note; "With all those problems, they probably won't be any bet- ter than 13-3 this year." Calgary Stampeders Hugh McKinnis is back after a sensational rookie year as fullback. Coach Jim Duncan says he is faster and quicker than last year. Wayne Harris is back at mid- A'f. linebacker and there is little likelihood anyone will beat Larry Robinson, Gig Perez or Howard Starks out of a job. Duncan says "nothing is set." "We are giving no one the idea they have it made." On offence. Jerry Keeling "is by far ahead of the others" at quarterback where rookie Jim Lindsey and last year's No. 2 man, Larry Lawrence, are vying for the backup spot. For halfbacks and wide re- ceivers, Duncan can choose from Rudy Linterman, veteran Ed Buchanan, Thermus Butler, Leo Taylor, Gene Beard and speedy Uriel Johnson. The weakness lies in the of- fensive line, a chronic com- plaint throughout the WFC. Cal- gary has centre Basil Bark, guards John Atamian and Gran- ville Liggins and tackle Lanny Boleski along with tackle-guard Herb good men. The problem has been to get them all working together. Punting is a problem which prompted Duncan to cry "can't anybody here Buchanan volunteered to try and Duncan, who handled Ed at Saskatchewan, replied: "Gd, I gave lip on you five years ago, but give It a try." British LionJ The Lions have Jackie Parker as supcrboss, Eagle Keys as head conch, Jim outstanding Canadian player last Jim Evenson. Evenson plnyed out his option mul wan dickering with Pitts- came up with more money. He roared out of the Lions' back- field for 11 touchdowns lasl year by rushing and three on passes. The big weakness has been at quarterback, but the Lions picked up Tom Wilkinson from Toronto Argonauts during the off-season to press veteran Paul Brothers for the job. And Broth- ers' pass-completion record was second only to that of Roughies' Lancaster last son. the sea- 'What 1 need is a winning Brothers says. "I have to show these people I can win as well as throw." Keys says he's waiting until do any drastic cutting. "We won't know how Ihese people slack up until they play somebody. Somebody who looks good now may not be playing against all that much in the way of opposition." Keys feels that to take third place they'll have to beat Ed- monton which would suit him fine. The Esks fired him a few years hack. Edmonton Eskimos When you say "Harry Theofi- lides" you have said it all. Well, if not all, quite a bit. The man who led the Bridge- port Jets to an Atlantic Coast championship last year; the for- mer backup to Joe Namath at the quarterbacking job from Don Trull. Young Rusty Clark, a pros- pect for the future, is a likely backup for whoever wins. The Esks still have strength on defence with the impressive front four of Ron Forwick, John Lagrone, Greg Pipes and Roy Shatzko. Behind them it's busi- ness as usual with Dave Gasser, Jerry Griffin and Ken Fergu- son. In the secondary, there looms Jim Htmshall, Dick Du- puis Mike Law and the won- drous John Wydareny. The question marks come in the offence, both along the line and in the backfield There is a tough fight for full- back shaping up among Jim Mankins, Bob Houmard and Alan Pitcaithley. Pitcaithley is faster, but Houmard has greater straight-ahead strength. Last year, Edmonton went through six changes at this posi- ion. Winnipeg Blue Bombers "The defence is making great strides. They've been together for a year now and are matu- says coach Jim Spavital. There was room for Improve- yielded up 332 points last season, worst record in the West except for B.C.'s 384. Back and healthy are Paul Brute, Mickey Doyle, Gd Ulmer. Joe Critchlow and Jim Heigh- in. For the first time in several seasons, Winnipeg has two cap- able quarterbacks in Benji Dial and Don Jonas, ob- tained from Toronto Argonauts after last season. Both are going for the No. 1 position. "The back-up will be just that. There'll be no Spavital says. To go with them, Bombers have four impressive runninf backs, including Charlie Bryan and Dick Smith, obtained from Montreal; Mack Herron and Paul Williams from Atlanta both highly impressive. Mets halt losing streak Willies haunt Giants, Dodgers coming strong By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A holiday series against Los Angeles Dodgers or a glance at the National League West Standings is enough to give San Francisco's sagging Giants a bad case of the willies. A pair of Willies-Davis and it to the Giants Monday, teaming for a fifth-in- ning uprising that vaulted the charging Dodgers to a 7-3 vic- tory and chopped San Francis- co's once-huge divisional lead to 3% games.

Mays, 40, was batting .33, with a dozen home runs, anc McCovey was not far behind a .319 with nine homers. LOSSES HAVE EDGE Since then, however, Sar Francisco has won fewer tha half its games, Mays' averag has dipped to .285, and Me Covey, bothered by repeatec knee ailments, has played spo radically and is down to .292. Davis of Uie Dodgers, mean while, has continued a hot cli with an average above the .35 mark. And in that span th Dodgers have won 21 of 30. Los Angeles, which trailed an Francisco before exploding or a 10-run eighth inning and a 4-4 trouncing of the Giants Sun- ay, did it again Monday. Davis tripled to tie the game. Hichie Allen's sacrifice fly put he Dodgers ahead. And two in- nings later Crawford gave them some breathing room with a lomer. The Mets' losing spin reached live games in the opener of Iheir twin-bill as John Stroh- mayer fired a five-hitter and he Expos scored their runs on a pair of bases-loaded walks in Jie eighth inning. SADECKI HOT But Cleon Jones drove in four runs on a homer and single in the second game to back the three-hit hurling of Ray Sa- decki, who retired Montreal's last 19 batters in order. The Pirates trailed the Cubs 2-0 after five innings before two-run singles by Manny San guillen and pitcher Steve Blass highlighted a pair of three-run rallies, enabling Pittsburgh to widen it's East lead to games over New Vork and nine over Chicago.
