The host Lethbridge Collegiate Rams allowed Medicine Hat Mohawks one touchdown in their champ- ionship final to retain the title they laid claim to this time last year. Another great season ends Rams retain their crown By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer About the only thing that was really hot at Henderson Stadium Friday was the right foot of Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams' Randy Stevens. who handles the quarterback and place- kicking was just un- believable as he fired a touchdown pass and booted three field goals in leading his teammates to a 15-7 victory over the Medicine Hat High Mohawks and the Southern Alberta High School Football League championship title. It was a gratifying victory for the defending champion who not only finished the 1973 season undefeated with eight straight but captured their 19th T. Eaton championship trophy since its inception 22 years ago. The only years in which the Rams tailed to earn the title were in 1963. 1969 and 1971. The old St. Francis Cougars captured the title in the '63 season while the Catholic Central Cougars were the recipients the remaining two years. On the other it was a heard-breaking loss for the eastern conference champion who narrowly miss- ed winning their first cham- pionship title ever. Some detrimental factors such as a long bus ride to Lethbridge. poor weather and terrible field conditions hurt the who were by far the best football club that ever came out of the Gas City in years. If the Mohawks are able to keep some of the players from the 1973 they could be the ones to beat next season. Meanwhile in last night's encounter. Stevens was just brilliant to say the least as he literally booted his team- mates to the championship title. In the opening Stevens gave the Kams a 9-0 lead by combining with wing back Kelly Wilde for an ex- citing pass-and-run play that covered 71 yards for a touchdown. He also booted a 27-yard field goal.

Steven's wouldn't go for this and made the going a little rougher by booting a 17-yard field goal on the first play of the final quarter. Trailing by two unconverted the Mohawks now realized that time was running out on them. With this in they gambled on a third down and four situation with some five minutes remaining. Quarterback Gord Johnson faked a punt and galloped 43 yards for the Mohawks only major. Cal Schick propelled the ball through the up-rights for the Mohawk's seventh point. With only five points separating the they both started to play a little tighter as they realized that one simple mistake could either mean a win or a loss. The action became more tense as-the clock ticked but .with some two minutes remaining Stevens blasted his third straight field goal to relieve the pressure. His 16-yard boot put the game out of reach for the Mohawks who now trailed 15- 7. As far as the final outcome was the game was now over.

That stop preserved the vic- and left Davidson with only one loss in six NHL starts. Jocelyn Guevremont gave Vancouver a 1-0 lead in the second period on a power play goal from 20 feet before the Blues took over in the final period to register their third victory of the season. Glen Sather started the Blues' comeback by flipping a backhander over Vancouver netminder Jacques Caron at the 24-second mark of the third period and Pierre Plante added his third goal of the season five minutes later.
