Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, November 11, iHE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Lions hit sidelines Sunday PHILDOAN GEORGE MYRON Canadian Rodeo Finals a success., Wells edges Reeder for roping title By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer EDMONTON The 1974 Canadian rodeo season drew to a close Saturday with the completion of the first annual Canadian National Finals Rodeo and the awards banquet later Saturday evening. Despite leading in many events throughout the week, Southern Alberta cowboys came up empty handed as far as Canadian championships in the five major events was concerned. Cardston calf roper Bill Reeder came as close to a Canadian championship as anyone can come without winning it. Reeder completed the six go round Finals with a total of 130 points on six calves the same number of points as Calgary's super roper Lome Wells. Despite finishing in a virtual tie for the cham- pionship Reeder lost out to Wells when the Finals com- mittee went to their tie break- ing system, determined prior to the start of the six day rodeo. Wells won his seventh Cana- dian calf roping championship by virtue of the fact that he tied his six calves in 80.3 seconds, compared to 83.4 seconds for Reeder. Wells was at his best Satur- day afternoon when the pressure was the greatest as he tied his calf in the fastest time of the rodeo, 9.2 seconds. Reeder, in order to maintain the lead he carried into the final day had to tie his calf in under 18.8 seconds. But an un- cooperative calf kept kicking free, and before the Cardston roper could secure all four feet 21.9 seconds had elapsed and Lome Wells not only won the go round but became the Canadian champion. Bob Rusk had a 10.6 run in the roping Saturday to finish second in the go round while third place went to Lee Phillips of Carseland with a clocking of 11.1 seconds. Wells won in excess of in winning the title while Reeder collected in se- cond spot. Jim Gladstone finished third overall. Dale Trottier of Calgary won his sixth consecutive Canadian bareback cham- pionship when he came through in championship style by winning the final go round with a 78 point ride aboard a bronc called Transport. Trottier had a 145 points in the title race, well ahead of Allan Thorpe of Bowden who finished second with 110 points. Trottier earned at the Finals. Mel Hyland was second in the final go round with a 75 while Allan Thorpe was third with 72 points. Even though Mel Hyland marked an astounding 89 points to win the final go round in the saddle bronc event he found himself in se- cond spot for the cham- pionship. Hyland's 125 total points after his ride on Sarcee Sarrell were 25 less than young Melvin Coleman amass- ed in first spot. Coleman, who was also named the CRCA's rookie of the year, had clinched the title going into the final go_ round and failed to place in the top four Saturday. Kenny McLean vas second Saturday with an 83, and an 80 by Tom Bews was good for third spot. Coleman earned at the Finals while Hyland pocketed with his sad- dle and bareback winnings combined. Jerri Duce of Granum was the top winner overall, prize wise. The blonde barrel racer not only won the barrel racing title with the highest total points of anybody at the finals, 210. but was also named the Canadian Rodeo Queen for 1974. She won for capturing the barrel running title, plus a horse trailer and a silver buckle. For winning the queen contest Jerry will get a free trip anywhere in the world serviced by Air Canada, in spending money, a set of luggage and a suit of clothes.

He also kicked two singles, one on a wide field- goal attempt on the last play of the game. If he had been successful, the game would have been tied and forced into overtime. "A hero or a bum, that's the kind of game it said Organ "I made the field goal and Sutter missed and that's what football is all about." The Ticats amassed 445 yards of net offence. 361 through the air. The Riders managed 210 yards net offence. 112 through passing. But the Rider defence again came up with the big plays, intercepting four passes two each for AJ Marcelin and John Kruspe and containing Jonas for most of the game. Ottawa linebacker Bill Palmer suffered a possible broken leg on the first play of the game and has been added to the team's growing injury list. Lineman Charlie Brandon b.oke his thumb in the pre-game warmup, but he played with a cast on his left hand and will play against Montreal OTTAWA 21 HAMILTON 19 Yards Yards Passes made Punls Fumbles Penalties the Finals.

Lancaster said Sunday, after Saskatchewan's 24-14 triumph over British Colum- bia Lions in the sudden-death WFC semi-final before 20-465 fans, that he doesn't believe momentum can be carried from one game to the next. "I think something has to happen in each he said. "That's why I don't believe in being up or down for a game." The veteran threw touchdown passes to Rhett Dawson and Bob Pearce, sparked a ball-control offence that restricted B.C.'s scoring opportunities, and provided some much-needed poise after the Lions took a first-quarter lead. Lancaster also handed off to George Reed for a one-yard touchdown plunge and helped provide the field position necessary for Brian Berg to add a clinching 30-yard field goal in the last quarter Berg converted all three touchdowns. Lou Harris opened the scor- ing for B.C. and Peter Liske, who shared quarterbacking duties with a hobbling Don Moorhead, tossed a 10-yard scoring strike to Terry Bailey in the fourth quarter Ivan MacMillan converted both. A 37-yard touchdown pass to LCC Kodiaks win tourney, drop Camrose 80-55 in final RED DEER The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks wrapped up the ACAC Pre-Season Basket- ball Tournament here over the weekend with a convincing 80- 55 victory over Camrose. Kodiak coach Ben Brooks said he was "more than pleas- ed with his club, especially considering these were our first three games of the year." The coach singled out Kendon Eackett for praise for his play in the tournament as well as Greg Hess and Al Pard. Calgary will host tournament CALGARY (CP) Calgary was named Thursday as the site of the Third Annual Wrigley National Midget Hockey Tournament Jan. 25- 31, 1976. Run in conjunction with Minor Hockey Week, the tour- nament will bring together 13 teams from across Canada. The winner will qualify for a trip to Russia. The first Wrigley Tourna- ment was held in Oshawa. Ont., last winter and was won by Verdun Maple Leafs, representing Quebec. Hess was named the most valuable player of the 10-team tourney while Pard won the trophy denoting the player who was the most sportsman- like during the two-day event. "We were particularly ex- cited about Al's coach Brooks said. "Sport- smanship in one player, like that displayed Jjy Al, reflects on the whole team." The LCC coach also felt his defence was a key to their vic- tory and went on to praise his boys for a solid two-way team effort. He pointed out that in two games they had four men in double figures and in one game five. Wayne Anderson and Kendon Eackett were the big guns for the Kodiaks in the championship game with 17 points apiece, while Greg Hess hooped 16. The Kodiaks lead 38-24 at half time against the Camrose squad. The Lethbridge club defeated the Northern In- stitute of Technology in the opening game of the tourney 76-66 in a game that saw Hess score 23 points. In the semi final game the Kodiaks out-gunned Red Deer College 103-55. Eackett had 26 points for the winners and Bruce Hamilton and Glen Schuler chipped in with 16 points apiece. The next action for the Kodiaks will be in the Cougar Classic at Calgary on Friday and Saturday of this week. AL PARD Pearce with one minute re- maining in the first half was vital, said Lancaster "It gave us a two-touchdown lead to think about at half- time It kept B C hopping after that The pass to Dawson covered 17 yards. Reed's touchdown came two plays after Lancaster hit tight end Al Ford for a first down at the four-yard line on a third- down gamble from a field-goal formation Harris smashed seven yards for the opening touchdown, de- spite an injured ankle George Wells spearheaded Saskatchewan the defence, sacking B.C. quarterbacks at least four times and exerting pressure throughout the game Coach Eagle Keys of the Lions said a third-quarter play in which Weils and Doug Dirks combined to shake the ball away from Moorhead was the defensive key to the victory It was followed by the Lan- caster-to-Ford gamble and the final Saskatchewan touchdown. Lancaster completed 16 of 23 passes for 220 yards. Liske and Moorhead combined for 18 completions in 33 attempts for 293 yards. The victory confirmed a suspicion for Saskatchewan head coach John Payne: "I've always had a feeling this ball club is a little better under pressure." he said The Roughriders won three games in succession at the end of the regular season to qualify for second place. They also beat the Lions four times in a row.
