The club attracted an aver- age home crowd of about 21.200 or 95-pcr-cent capacity, although they didn't assure Ilismsclvcs of a playoff berth until the final weekend of Ihe schedule. That situation backed up the statement, by Lunsford that, in football, "tiic product is tire thing."

Calgary earns berth into second-straight Grey Cup By ROD EDWARDS REGIK'A (CP) Calgary Stampeders head for their sec- ond consecutive Grey Cup ap- pearance Nov. 23 after throwing aside Saskatchewan Rough- riders in straight games in the best-of-three Wes t Football Conference firvil. Slampedcrs delivered f. h c coup dc grace on a Wednesday nigiit with a 23-2] win over Saskatchewan, follow ing up their :JO-2I come-trom-be- hind victory in the first game in Calgary last Saturday. Riders seemed to bo as stiff as the 19- mile- a n-h our wind Wednesday for the entire first half as Calgary jumped into a 9-0 lead. They came back in the second half and even bad Ihe 14.582 fans believing Ihe Riders would win the game. But after scoring two touch downs to take a 14-9 lead, Cal gary penetrated lo Ihe Saskat chewan 42 and Hugh McKinnis iumcd an innocent-looking pla> into a 42-yard touchdown run around the end to put the Stemps back into the lead. With just 30 seconds left in the quarter and Riders looking forward to switching ends to get the wind advantage. Jerry Keel ing played magician. Seemingly trapped in the backfield wilh all four Rider de- fensive linemen converging in mil-crackc-r fashion, the veteran signal-caller ducked out of the maze and fired a touchdown pass to Rudy Linterman. who had been given up on by Ridei defenders. The play went 71 yards. Besides the Linterman and McKinnis touchdowns. Keeling also fired a 20-yard strike to Jon Henderson. Place kicker Larry Robinson, who killed Saskatchewan in last j year's final with a field goal into the wind, provided three converts zr.S two singles off j field goal the latter j two points being the winning margin. Both were conceded by Ted Dushinski. Abcndschan also tried two field goals from 30 and 36 yards into the wind. between ihe two clubs.

Riders' top i ground gainer, Reed, was held f to 67 yards on 15 carries and j the total Saskatchewan rushing j game amounted to a mere 12-1 yards. Calgary supplemented a 2-12-, yard passing game with 2ol yards on the ground for a net i offence of 493 yards. Riders' 199 yards passing on Lancaster's 17 of 26 pass com-, pletions gave them a lotal of-: fence of 309 yards. Keeling completed 14 of 2-1 passes. Gig Perez, a former Stam- peder picked up mid-way I through the season to bolster an injury-riddled pass defence, in- tercepted two Keeling passes. His second was returned .w yards on a dazzling run to set up Saskatchewan's first louch- i down.
