PHONE FOR Open Thursday and Friday till 9 "Serving Southern Alberla for ovor 35 Complete resume 83, OTTAWA (CP) It probably wasn't what he intended, but Ot- tawa Bough Kiders made coach Ray Jauch of Edmonton Eski- mos something of a prophet Tuesday night. In a news confer- ence Monday, Jauch said Riders were better than their last-place finish last year in the Eastern Conference of the Canadian Football League. Tuesday the Riders made it stick by heating the Eskimos 22-11 to the delight of fans at the first league game of the season for both clubs. And, although two big scoring plays will be what the fans talk about until the next game, it was an honest victory for the Riders as they handled the Es- kimos at every turn but one. That one misturn started with defensive half Ted Page inter- cepting a pass attempt by Ot- tawa quarterback Gary Wood late in the second quarter and ended with flanker George MeGowan scoring a six-yard touchdown. KICKS 4 POINTS Dave Cutler converted that and added a 46-yard field goal and a single on a missed 41- yard field goal attempt. But other than that the Eider defence gave little room in con- taining the few thrusts of full- back Bob Houmard and the dou- ble-barrelled threat of half Jim off his danger- ous outside running and keying on him in obvious pass situa- tions. The Eskimos could have been hampered by the loss of back Al Pitcaithley on the last play o( the first half. He returned, but only for one run, and left again limping heavily on his right leg. He said in a brief interview after the game he didn't think it was serious, but further infor- mation was cut off when the press was barred from the Ed- monton dressing room. The plays the fans will he talking about were a 22-yard pass-and-run from Wood to Den- nis Duncan that opened the sec- ond quarter with a touchdown and an 84-yard punt return for a touchdown by Al Marcelin in the third quarter. Wood scored the other Ottawa touchdown when he salvaged a broken play from the Edmonton o n e -y a r d line in the first quarter. Gerry Organ com- pleted scoring with three con- verts and a single. M e a n w h i 1 e in Vancouver British Columbia Lions dropped a 14-10 decision to Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Western Football Conference c u r t a in- raiser Tuesday night, and Lions coach Eagle Keys wasn't at all pleased. "We could have won said Keys, who joined tire lowly Lions after leading the Riders to the WFC pennant last season and the Western championship the year before. "We should have had 21 points on the hoard in the first half." Three converted touchdowns would have done it, and three times B.C. moved within range. But the Lions opted for field- goal, attempls. Three times Ted Gerela's kick went wide and the half ended with the Riders in command 7-3. It was quarterback Ron Lan- caster, his troublesome "tennis elhow" replaced in an off-season operation, who got Saskatche- wan rolling early and his vet- eran defensive unit which saved the win under an impressive Lions i.ttack late in the game.

It set the stage for a two- yard plunge into the end zone by Steve Molnar for the first touchdown with the game barely six minutes old. Saskatchewan's second touch- down came from George Reed hi the third quarter, Jack Abendschan converting it as he had on (lie first. Jim Evenson scored B.C.'s only touchdown and Ken Phil- lips made good on the convert. Gerela salvaged three singles from his missed field-goal tries, two from 16 yards and the other from 42. In statistics, the Lions led in total offence, 327 to 290, which in itself was enough lo draw a "happy to get the two points" comment from Saskatchewan coach Dave Skrein. In the dressing room after the game, Skrien indicated he was surprised that British Columbia a revamped lineup of 15 new faces, many of them rook- done so well against the Saskatchewan veterans who lost only two of 16 regular sea- son games last year. The linebackers, he singled out as having done "a hell of a job." SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan I CAN HARDLY WAIT for this time of year to roll around. It's Hie football season and I anxiously await the chance to give you my fearless football fore- cast for the year. My tune has changed somewhat from the past two or three years. I don't think the Southern Alberta Stampeders, otherwise known as the Calgary Stam- peclers, will finish second or third this season. I feel, and very strongly, too, that they will finish first. The Stampeders won't do it in the fashion of the Saskatchewan Roughriders last year but what good did it do the Jolly Green Giants from the land of dust and man-made mountains? They still failed to make the advantage pay off in the playoffs. This year, I have to go with Calgary first, Sas- katchewan second, British Columbia. Lions third, Ed- monton Eskimos fourth and Winnipeg fifth. In the east, I lean towards Toronto Argonauts, Montreal Alouettes, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Ottawa Rough Riders, in that order. Out west, the nod, I feel, has to go to Calgary. They are almost standing pat on defence, Canada's best, and have improved offensively, even though big Roger Kramer retired. Calgary made it to the Grey Cup last year on the strength of their defence and this time should finish first. Offence left something to be desired last year as it was inconsistent, but holes have been plugged and new bodies brought in. This, along with the ac- quisition of a solid punter in Bill Van Burkleo, gives the Stamps the nod as pennant winners. Saskatchewan still has the most dangerous quar- terback in Canada in the person of Ron Lancaster, but it lost its most potent defensive weapon in Ed Mc- Quarters. Without the big guy in there, the Roughies stand to lose two or three close games they may have won on his intimidation alone. George Reed isn't back to par as yet and this will undoubtedly hurt the club in the early going. Also playing at less than full speed are two other stalwarts, Bobby Thompson and Silas McKinney. Add to all this the fact Eagle Keys has flown the green and white coop and second place is the spot for the Roughies. Eagle Keys has made believers of Canadians in his ability to make a mediocre ball club a winner, and that's why I feel, he will get the Lions into the playoffs in third spot. The Lions have had the personnel the past couple of seasons, but didn't have the coaching to smooth off the edges. Keys can, and it says here will, do just that. If Keys doesn't get the job done in Vancouver the Edmonton Eskimos of Ray Jauch will be on the inside of the playoff scene looking out at the Lions. Jauch did a tremendous job with the Eskimos last year and promises to do even a better job this time around. He just might if his quarterbacking situ- ation, which is supect at the moment, comes through. Edmonton's defence is almost on a par with that of Calgary's but not their offence and I still can't see Hie Eskimos being there if the Lions play ball for Keys. Winnipeg could be spoilers on occasion but they are not, at least this season, a threat to make the playoffs. Granted, they did win some exhibition games but who takes that into consideration when the season starts and it's down to business? So there you have it. Calgary, Saskatchewan, B.C., Edmonton and Winnipeg. Now, if past perform- ances by your agent are any indication, bet some- where near the opposite of my choices, as a number of my friends have told me they do, and you could make a quid or two.
