I EDMONTON A speedy defensive back, an in- jured plaeekicker and a lucky bounce helped Saskatchewan Roughrlders put an end to Ed- monton Eskimos' storybook football season Sunday. The Roughrlders edged the Eskimos 8-R in a sudden-death Western Football Conference semi-final that went down to the last play. The Eskimos, who overcame a rash of key injuries this year to move from last place in 1971 to their best record in a decade, almost scored on the final play. But a desperation tackle by Saskatchewan's fleet Roy Rob- inson saved the touchdown. Jack Abendschan, playing de- spite a pinched nerve in his back, kicked two field goals and a single for the winners and Bob Pearce had a single, Abendschan's 37-yard field goal in the first period went through after hitting a goal post, while Edmonton placekicker Dave Cutler lost a 33-yard field goal in the third quarter when the ball hit an upright and bounced back into play. Veteran quarterback Ron Lancaster was a key figure in the Saskatchewan victory, pick- ing apart the Edmonton defence with his accurate passing. He had 16 completions in 29 at- tempts for 287 yards. SCORE NO TDS Neither team scored a touch- down and most of the offensive fireworks were saved for the fi nal quarter. Abendschan's firsl field goal and Pearce's 41-yarc single gave the Riders a 4- lead. Cutler managed a 30-yard single for Edmonton on a wide field goal attempt on the last play of the half. The other Eskimo points came on a field goal and a safety touch. The Roughridere, who play at Winnipeg against the Blue Bombers next Sunday in their seventh consecutive western fi- nal, continued to nurse a 4-1 lead going into the final quar- knock down a ball headed for (Bob) Ford said. "I old Ronnie (quarterback Lan- caster) the safety man had left me all alone. Then, when we jot a chance, Lancaster called t again." Abendschan's field goal at- tempt from the 10 with 17 sec- onds remaining was partially blocked and went for a single, r.iving Edmonton one more :hance. Wilkinson uncorked a bomb ter. Tom Edmonton Wilkinson, quarterback who threw three interceptions, drove the Esks early in the fourth quarter from their 40 to the Saskatche- wan 12 when the drive stalled. On third and 10, Edmonton lined up for a field goal at- tempt, but Wilkinson took the snap and fired a short pass tc Gene Foster who was stopped short of the first down. Edmonton coach Ray Jauch insisted the fake field goal didn't cost Edmonton the game. "I have no reservation about that if we get one block, we get a touchdown." Lancaster was pressured on the next series in his end zone by a hard Edmonton rush, and the Esks were awarded two points on a safety when Lancas- ter was called for intentional grounding. ESKIMOS TAKE LEAD Trailing 4-3, Wilkinson took the Esks lo the Saskatchewan 15 midway through the final quarter with Dave Culler kick- ing a 22-yard field goal to give Edmonton a G-4 load. But Lancaster, assisted by a rough play penalty against Ed- monton, moved the Riders downfield wilh Abendschan booting a 27-yard field goal for a 7-C lead wilh less than five minifies to play. Wilkinson couldn't get the of- fence rolling and Lancaster came back with a 57-yarrJ pass to Al Ford deep in Edmonton territory. Lancaster said the Riders hadn't used the play during the regular season when they finished third. "A few plays previously, I was all alone when (Gary) Le- febvre made a great play to from his 25 that Larry High- baugh grabued near midfield. Highbaugh looked like he had a good chance to outdistance the Saskatchewan secondary but Robinson caught h i m from be- hind at the 25 as the game ended. Robinson, an import from Montana who played with the Roughriders at the beginning of the season, was cut late in the year and then returned to the roster.

Tlie Rough Riders now must face Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a two-game, total-point final that opens here next weekend and ends in Hamilton Nov. 25. The Alouettes outrushed and outpassed the Riders, but threw in three fumbles, two bad snaps from centre that cost them two two point safety touches and suffered three Ottawa inter- ceptions. Although the Riders finished the regular season with 11 winds in 14 games, their offence always has come under ques- tion. So It was Saturday. Ottawa got only a field goal from its offence while the de- fence accounted for the rest of their points. GET ONE TOUCHDOWN Dick Adams intercepted a George Mira pass and ran 33 yards for Ottawa's only touch- down. It was converted by Gerry Organ, who also booted a field goal. The first-quarter touchdown was all the scoring the Riders could muster until the final 15 minutes. The remaining four Ottawa points came on two wierd snaps from centre Wayne Conrad that sailed high over the head of punter Wally Duono to roll craz- ily into the end zone. In both cases, Buono was pre- vented from getting a kick away and, since the second took place within five minutes of the end of the game, the Aloueties also had to kick to Ottawa on that one under a delay-of-game rule. Organ's field goal, which put Ottawa ahead to stay, provided some of the tensest moments of the game. His first attempt was good from the 37-yard line in the fourth quarter, but the Riders took a five-yard penalty for tak- ing too long in the huldle. DID IT AGAIN So Organ, Canadian Football League scoring leader with 131 points, did it again from the 42- 3-ard line with the kick just barely clearing the crossbar. Montreal got a touchdown on a five-yard run by Larry Smith in the second quarter, a con- vert, field goal and a single on a wide placement attempt by George Springate. Ottawa coach Jack Gotta had no explanation for the way the Alouettes outnished the Riders C3 yards lo 4-1 and outpassed them 278 yards to 130. 'When we came out, T thought we would blow them off the he said. "We didn't. "We were so don't know why." Montreal coach Sam Etche- verry, a veteran of football wars, had tears of dis- appointment after the game. "Turnovers killed us every he said. "We played so well." ANDY WHAT'S GOT TO BE 'APPV ABOUT; FLO? E'SHlTONA FANTASTIC NEW WEAPON TOR IS WAR ON And referring lo the two safety he didn't point any said: "Those four points, they were the difference." The Riders, who won all three meetings during the season wilh Montreal, were fearful of the Alouette ground attack. But Mira went to the air fcr Ins big gains, hitting on 1G of 33 throws for 278 of them for 124 yards to Terry Evansben. Moses Denson set the rushing pace with 37 yards in 14 carries compared with two carries for eight yards by Smith. Hugh Oldham caught four of the 12 passes Rick Cassala completed in 23 tries, account- ing for 54 of the 130-yard aerial total. Art Cantrelle was the top Ottawa rusher with 26 yards in 13 carries. Only 16.HS fans attended the game, the smallest attendance of the Ottawa season.
