Suspensions to seven RED DEER (CP) Seven Alberta Hockey League play- era, four from Calgary Slani- peders and three from Edmon- ton Mosarehs, have been given game suspensions because of a fight in a game at Edmonton Sunday. Kay Marsh of Bed Deer, sec- retary-manager of the league, said today Ted Demchuk, Bob Peers, Gary McQuid and Cam Allison of the Stampeders are suspended from playing in a game Tuesday night at Dnun- hcller.

A Calgary, Montreal Grey Cup would briiiff it about How would it look, two third place clubs in final? TORONTO (CP) Normally, the Canadian Football League playoffs arc no place for under- dogs. It has been 10 years since a second-place learn won (he Grey Cup. Thai, won't happen this year either. Instead, there is the precedent-shattering possibility that a third-place club will go all the way. The way things stand today, it isn't even a long shot. Calgary Stampcders, third in the Western Conference, need one more victory in their best- of-thrcc series with Saskatehe- svan Roughriders to get into the final. Montreal Alotiettes, their eastern counterparts, have to protect a 10-poinl lead in their total-point linal against Hamil- ton Tiger-Cats to join them. If both are snccesslul, history Roughriders determined to prove themselves REGJNA (CP) Jack Abend- sclian, whose place-kicking has saved Saskatchewan Hough- riders from several tight spots this season, says the Hough- riders are determined lo prove themselves against Calgary "I think have the best team Saskatchewan has ever said Abendschan, who is preparing along with his team- mates for Wednesday night's second game in Calgary of the Western Football Conference playoffs. Abendsdian, WFC scoring champion for the last two sea- suns, contributed a field goal, a single and a convert Saturday when the Roughriders lost 28-11 to the Stampeders in the first game of the best-of-thrce final. "We beat every team in the said Abendsclian, who admits that the club's M wins and two losses in regular-season play, the team's best record, doesn't cut any ice when play- offs start. Tile game Wednesday begins at 8 p.m. MST and is to be broadcast nationally by tbe CBC television network. If a third game is necessary, it mil be played in Regina Sunday. KICKERS WIN JIOHE "Kickers are winning more games said Abend- scban, who contributed 23 field goals, 36 converts and eight sin- gles to Hie Rougmider cause in regular-season play this year and also provided some elev- enth-hour theatrics. His finest moment came in Regina's Taylor Field Sept. IS when he booted a 47-yard field goal, his third three-pointer of the night, with just three sec- onds left to play in the game, providing the margin for a 23-22 victory over British Columbia Lions. Abeudschan, six-foot-one, 243- pound offensive guard, kicked another field goal on the last play of the game Sept. 27 to Winnipeg to give the Rough- riders a 5-3 win over the Blue Bombers. Abendsclian, however, con- tributes a lot more than his kicking skill to the Roughriders. "Kicking is a secondary thing with me to my guard he said. While he has kicked sorrre long field goals, Abendschan says the most pressure is on when the ball is closer to the goal posts. Magralli golfers meeting louiglit The Magrath Golf Club will try once more to hold an or- ganizational meeting. A meeting was lo have been held last Thursday but accord- ing lo officials of the club no one showed up. Set for tonight al eight o'clock at the Lion's i-Iall, a number of important matters will be on the agenda. Anyone interested is welcome. 71 CORTINA gives 30 plus miles per gallon Better Stability Front Disc Brakes Easy Handling Lower Maintenance Costs v' Durability Pius many more feature5 fc. Ill Down F.O.B. IETHBRIDGE or Per Month Q.A-C. ''You're not expected to miss inside the 20. I am probably more partial to kicking between the 20 and the 45. "Any time you're outside the 40-to 45-yard line, a lot of luck enters into it. It's just like shooting a rifle, you're that much far! her away from the target and. your accuracy is af- fected." Abendschan's first attempts at field-goal kicking, in high school, were in a game las team won by a 58-0 score. He missed every convert. "It was kind of an inauspicious debut, but my father said to keep at it." Tius year, he failed on only three'or'four convert attempts and succeeded on about 63 per cent of his field-goal tries, "the best averige I've ever had." anter M'II ii ill ii nil pin1 ill i iiw r] lit1'In'i AT CAPRI BOWL, Eloise Ives look Oie honors as the women's bowlcr-of-tlic-weck, pacing her team to victory in f.he Col.

The 1953 Winnipeg Blue Bombers were the only previous third-place club to survive the rigors of an unfavorable playoK schedule and reach the final. It took them five games to get past Saskatchewan and Edmon- ton Eskimos while Hamilton needed only two easy victories over Montreal to gain the east- ern berth. Yet the Bombers stayed alive until the last play ot the final game. Trailing 12-6, Winnipeg quart- crback Indian Jack Jacobs brought his club to the Hamilton four-yard line. With time for one play, he tossed a perfect pass to halfteck Tom Casey, two strides away from the end zone. Defensive back Lou Kusse- row, covering another receiver, hurtled across to hit Casey just as the ball reached him and it popped loose, preserving the Hamilton victory. In each of the next two years, the Bombers finished third and ousted Saskatchewan in the con- ference semi-finals but were un- able to get past Edmonton in the conference finals. Third-place clubs won semi-fi- nals in both conferences in 1961, the only time it had happened prior to this season, but neither Calgary Stainpeders nor To- ronto Argonauts got any fur- ther. For the Argos it was a heart- breaker. Leading Hamilton by 18 points after the first game of their total-point series, they lost by three touchdowns in over- lime after failing lo kick a tie- breaking single from the 30- yard line on the last play of the fourth quarter. Two years later, Saskatche- wan overcame even greater odds lo oust Calgary in their WFC semi-final. Trailing by 26 points after the first game, the Eiders scam- pered through a driving snow- storm at Regina's Taylor Field to a 39-12 victory that gave them the round by a single point. Key factors were the scram- bling of quarterback Ron Lan- caster, the power limning of fullback George Reed and the end sweeps of halfback Ed Bu- chanan. All three face similar uphill tasks this week, Lancas- ter and Reed with the Riders and Buchanan with Hamilton. The 1963 Riders, who still had enough left to win one of then- three games against British Col- umbia Lions in the WFC final, were the last third-place club in either division to get past the first round of the playoffs. In fact, even second-place clubs have found the going diffi- cult since Ottawa Rough Eiders won the cup in I960 with a 16-6 victory over Edmonton, which i also finished second. In the nine years since their triumph, only three runners-tip have played in Grey Cup games and all were defeated. First banquet Thursday Tlnirecfey evening Mill mark a first for the Southern Alberta High School Foolball League.
