Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Eskimos do Cowtowners a big favor Stamps back into first place in west By THE CANADIAN PRESS Calgary Stampeders and Saskatchewan Roughriders tossed first place around like a hot potato during the weekend and wound up the Western Football Conference season being trampled by a couple of also-rans. Calgary had an opportunity to wrap things up but were foiled 31-7 by British Columbia Lions in Vancouver Saturday night. However, they managed to back into first place when the Rough-riders fell 26-12 before the Eskimos in Edmonton Sunday. The Stampeders and the Roughriders finished the season with 19 points each, but Calgary took first place because it had a superior point spread in games against Saskatchewan. The Roughriders will meet Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the sudden-death WFC semi-final in Regina next Saturday. The Eskimos' fifth straight victory left head coach Ray Jaunch with high hopes for next season. "The team has a good nucleus for a winning club next year if Ti-Cats, Rough Riders meet in semi-final Alouettes on the outside looking in By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer The surprising Hamilton Ti-ger-Cats and rejuvenated Ottawa Rough Riders meet next Sunday in Hamilton in sudden-death Eastern Football Conference semi-final play. The Ticats stunned Toronto Argonauts 23 - 15 Sunday to clinch second place in the final s t a n d i n gs and the Riders tripped Montreal Alouettes 9-7 in action Saturday. Ottawa and Montreal finished the season tied with 12 points apiece, two behind Hamilton, but the Riders took the third and final playoff spot by virtue of their better record against the 1970 Grey Cup champions. The Ticat victory was a costly one. Quarterback Joe Zuger was pushed to the paved running track that surrounds CNE Stadium and suffered a separation of the right shoulder. He was to undergo surgery on the injured shoulder today and was not expected to play again this season. Hamilton coach Al Dorow was already in the process of looking for his replacement Sunday night. GABLER A PROSPECT Chief aspirant to the Ticat quarterbacking woes is Wally Gabler, whom the Ticats dropped earlier in the season. Gabelr, who watched the Hamilton-Toronto game from the stands, said in an interview from his Burlington, Ont., home Sunday night he was waiting to hear from the Ticats. He walked out in the middle of a five-day trial with the AIs earlier in the week because they wouldn't delete the option clause from his players' contract. Gabler said he doesn't expect to have any problems signing with Hamilton and "if we can agree to terms I'm ready to play." John Manel, who replaced Zuger at quarterback, had played offensively only about five minutes in an early season game. After a jittery start, however, he seemed to settle away behind some crips blocking by Hamilton's offensive line. The Ticats were leading 2-0 on two missed field goal attempts by Tommy Joe Coffey when Kings, Cents tied for first By THE CANADIAN PRESS Edmonton Oil Kings and Calgary Centennials share first place in the western division of the Western Canada Hockey League with 14 points apiece after weekend action. Edmonton trounced New Westminster Bruins 9-4 Sunday for their seventh win of the season while Calgary goaltcn-der John Davidson recorded his third shutout in a 5-0 victory over Vancouver Nats. In eastern division, Saskatoon Blades scored a 4-1 victory over Brandon Wheat Kings Sunday, to puth both teams in first place with 12 points. New Westminster scored a 4-3 victory over Victoria Cougars Saturday, while Medicine Hat Tigers downed Vancouver 6-5. Regina Pats dumped Cougars 7-2 and Winnipeg'Jets defeated Flin Flon 4-2 in the other Sunday games. Rookie Chris Shokoples scored three times to lead Oil Kings to their victory over the Bruins. Randy Rota scored twice and Fred Comrie, John Rogers, Terry Smith and Tom Bladen added the others. For the Bruins, Les Jackson scored twice while Bernie Lu- WRESTLING TONIGHT! 8:30 P.M.

Davidson turned aside 29 Vancouver shots to earn his shutout in a game marred by a third-period brawl. The Centennials lost their entire first line because of game mlscon ducts as seven players on each team were banished. Scoring for Calgary were Brian Walker, Marty Kissel, Russ Wiechnik, Doug Horbul and Jim Watson. Jeff Ablett, the league's leading point-getter, scored one goal for the Tigers and assisted on four others to lead them to their victory over Van couver. Stan Weir and Tom Lysiak contributed two goals apiece for the winners while Bill Christie had the other goal, Grant Williams, Gordon Stewart, Bill Ennos, Dave Andru-chiw and Gord Gamble were the Vancouver marksmen. Ten cities want WHA franchise NEW YORK (AP) - Ten cities have exercised options for franchises in the World Hockey Association, it was announced Saturday. President Gary L. Davidson of Santa Ana, Calif., said charter memberships include Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Dayton, and St. Paul, Minn. Davidson said two more teams will be added before the start of the WHA's inaugural 1972-73 season. Zuger was injured. With Mane] getting the plays from Dorow, and crucial roughing calls against the Argos, Hamilton drew first touchdown blood in the third quarter when Max Anderson crashed over from the one-yard line. The rugged Hamilton defence opened a 16-1 lead in the third quarter when defensive halfback Al Brenner returned an interception 50 yards for one score. Garney Henley returned his third interception of the game 13 yards for another early in the fourth quarter to make it 23-1. Argo quarterback Joe Theis-mann, victim of all four Hamilton interceptions, finally got the EFC-winning Toronto club going with touchdown strikes to Leon McQuay, for 81 yards, and Dick Thornton. "It looked like an impossible thing, but we did it," Dorow said in the jubilant Hamilton dressing room. "I said before the game that I wanted a win today so that we could meet Ottawa on our home field in the semi-final, and that's what we got." His subsequent crack that he preferred to meet Ottawa rather than Montreal'-'We beat them two out of three this season and they look like the weaker team" -may only serve to lift Ottawa coach Jack Gotta and his club to greater heights next Sunday. The Riders, counted out of the playoff picture most of the year, rebounded late in the season when Gotta dropped veteran quarterback Gary Wood and ac quired running back Bob (Hoss) Houmard.
