Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQC HERALD NOVtmawr ivra Graham Kelly It has been a long time since a football team has manhandled the Sask- atchewan Roughriders in the fashion displayed by the Edmonton Eskimos last Sun- day. The score flattered Saskatchewan since they were ham- and sent back to the verdant Regina plains with their tails between their legs. In the the Eskimos wrapped up first place in the West for the first time since 1957. They deserve it. They had to take first place away from Saskatchewan. They met the challenge head and now have that very important bye into the Western final with home field L advantage. It is an old football axiom that games are won or lost in Although a slippery field tends to put the charging defensive line at a disadvan- I don't think better play- ing would have made much of a difference. If the offensive line gets the jump your defense is in trouble. The Saskatchewan generally an excellent was thoroughly beaten time and time again. In Roy Bell and his blockers humiliated them.

Rider Coach John Payne won't have to say much to get his club up for this semi-final. The last thing he will probably on is show the films of the Roughrider disaster in Ed- monton. When the mommies and wives tuck the Jolly Green Giants into bed Saturday r there will be visions of 2 revenge in Rider head. rCome the Lions should be face-to-face with a completely aroused and ferocious bunch of football players. In order to use the passing game to Ron Lancaster loves to get that ground game going. During the regular was the. trenches. The outcome will be determined by which line plays best. On the Eskimo offensive line was consistently beating their counterparts by being quick off the ball. Roger Lanny Bob Willie and a newcomer named Jim Kupp held Bill Baker and company at bay throughout most of the afternoon. Although it was hard to tell on television ex- actly what they were by a series of trap blocks and Bill Baker the Undertaker was turned into a picture of frustration play. Besides the the rarfe Eskimo line opened gaping holes for Roy Bell who had the finest afternoon in his CFL career. possessed Eagle Keys to cut Estay adrift from the The Eskimo pass defense also came up with an outstanding doing a fine job in dis- guising pass coverage. Using a combination zone and man- to-man they took away the play-action pass from and for half the ball game prevented the Jolly Green Giants from mounting a sustained passing attack. Full marks to an Ed- monton defense. Remember that quarterback Bruce who didn't argued that Edmonton's defense was as good as any. So now Ray Jaunch and company have two weeks to prepare for the Western final. To get to the Grey Cup game for the first time since the Igloo dwellers will probably be facing Saskatchewan once although the B.C. Lions have been a surprising bunch at various during the season. Keep in that in the Canadian Football League the unexpected can happen at any time and often does. gained by taking a run at a play-off spot and making it. They won when they had to gaining a place in post- season play for the first time since 1969. Saskatchewan will have to do a much better job on Johnny Musso than they did on Roy Bell. People like linebacker Bill Manchuck are going to have to do some real head-knocking to make up for their lack of it against Ed- monton. If B.C. can nullify Bill Baker and the outside linebackers with any degree of the Lions have a vfery real chance at an upset. I'm betting that won't happen. able to run with impunity against B.C. Ray Bud Garrett Mike and Gary Robinson will be out to prove that those days are over. I look for Saskatchewan to continue to run the ball well against B.C. with George Reed picking up around 100 yards. If this Saskatchewan should win in a walk. Unless B.C. shows a com- plete reversal of form this the game will have to be very low scoring in order for them to' advance to the finals against Edmonton. The Lions have seldom scored a great number of points this relying instead on their defense to keep them close. If B.C.'s defense can stop the Saskatchewan they will likely win. -NATIONAL COURTESY CARD- LEASING motor vehicle described on the beck of this WtntrA- Card run been leased from a Ford Authorized System Canada Lessor It would M appreciated If every couftety including prompt and quality tervtce and any appropriate fleet discounts on parts bo SMianded to the operator of this vsftltie.

But a lucky goal by Don Le- ver and a disputed goal by Or- land Kurtenbach within less than three minutes early in the third period gave the hometown Canucks the lead for the first time in the game and the Sabres were unable to fight back. Gerry 0'Flaherty gave the Canucks a 1-1 tie with his goal early in the second period. Lever's goal seemed to take most of the bounce out of the Buffalo who concentrated on defence much of the game. The Vancouver player at- tempted to dump the puck in front from his position in the corner in back of Buffalo goalie Dave but the puck took a bad struck Dryden on his pad and trickled into the net.

The Wings also said centre Marcel Dionne could be in the lineup tonight after sitting out last Sunday's game against Atlanta Flames. Coach Ted Garvin said Dionne has been practising with such enthusiasm that he will be reinstated. Garvin has criticized who has no goals and seven assists in 10 for not playing to the peak of his ability. Dionne has said the Wings should trade him for the good of the team.
