The host Zeniths bested sev- en other top southern Alberta high school teams In a two-day affair. The Zeniths earned their sec- ond tourney title by belting the Lcthbridge Catholic Central Cougars 52-34 in the champion- ship final Saturday night. Rick Ponomar paced lire Zen- iths with a 14-point performance while John Balderson and Tim Hollingson added 12 points apiece. Peter Sikora notched 17 points for the Cougars while Handy Iloyer chipped in with 10. Meanwhile Taber thumped the Cardston Cougars GM4 to take home the third place title. Robin Hansen hooped 39 big points to lead Taber while Jim Golta tvanted more points Brilliant comeback for Roughies WINNIPEG (CP) Jim Thorpe of Winnipeg Blue Bomb- ers suggested last week the rule that gives a team a chance to get a single point on a missed field goal should bo thrown out. He's probably more convinced he's right today. Because of that rule, the season is over for end TLorpe and the Bombers, while again returned it to the field. Saskatchewan Roughriders go on to the Grey Cup by virtue of Western Football Conference championship. Place-kicker Jack Abends- Chan missed a 34-yard'field-goal with six seconds left, Winnipeg kicked it out, Saskatchewan quarterback Ron Lancaster booted the ball back into the zone and the Bombers a 27-24 win over Winnipeg Sun- day. Under CFL rules, if a field- goal attempt is no good, but the defending team can't get the ball out of the end zone, the kicking point, team gets a single Sunday, Winnipeg, an odds-on favorite to knock off the Hough- riders, was forced to return kicks from the end zone with only seconds remaining on the clock. Following the second kick from the end zone, Winni- peg was called for giving no yards to a punt receiver and Saskatchewan got another chance at a field goal. It was good and Saskatchewan won the Little trouble for Bears EDMONTON (CP) The small and inexperienced Loyola College Warriors fell before an aerial blitz thst carried Univer- sity of Alberta Golden Bears to a 5C-G win Saturday In the West- ern College Bowl. Loyola held Alberta within reach until the third quarter and had several opportunities in the second quarter to take the lead. Coach Doug Daigneault, who said before the game he liked being rated an underdog be- cause it took off some of the pressure, pondered the thump- ing In the Loyola dressing it was quiet but not subdued after the game. He said he expected to win and "we could have if we had put something across in the second quarter." That was when Golden Bears seemed intent on blowing their eaiy lead. A series of errors and penalties left the Warriors in good field position throughout the quarter and eventually they came up with a first down on the Alberta one-yard line. The Golden Bear defence, led by linebacker and defensive captain Andy the game's most valuable tackle Al Sheman- chuk, thwarted Loyola on three consecutive thrusts. Meanwhile the Waterloo Lutheran Golden Hawks, with a powerful ground game and a c-aptive pass defence, walloped St. Mary's Huskies 50-17 Satur- day in the Atlantic Bowl. "A learn effort like today and we got the championship." Hawk coach Dave Knight said matler-of-factly after the lop- sided contest which gave his team a herlh in Ihe national college final in Toi-onto next Salurday against University of Alberta Golden Bears. SECOND TRY GOOD But Winnipeg was assessed the no-yards penalty ?.nd, with no time showing on the clock, Abendschan's second try from tire 32 was successful. The game can't end on a penalty. A dejected Winnipeg coach Jim Spavital said the no-yards penalty was a good call, but said the same penalty should have been assessed Saskatche- wan when Bombers' Mike Law SASKATCHEWAN 87 WINNIPEO 54 First downs Yards rushing fielded Abendschan's wide field-1 in the middle and (Paul) Rob' goal attempt. It was the running of fullback George Reed and costly rough- ing penalties against Winnipeg that allowed the Roughriders to move into a 24-24 tie with three minutes left. Winnipeg led 21-7 at halftime and 24-14 going into the final quarter. But on the final play of the third quarter Mickey Doyle left the game with a broken leg. That, both clubs, agreed, was the vital turning point. "When Mickey got hurt that was it our outside was SASK WPG n is 2110 78 Passes meds-trled Interceptions-yards Punts-average 308 235 15-31 16-36 ..11-33.8 9-39.5 2-2 5-25 hurting, they ran all over Spavital said afterwards.

Roughriders, third-place fin- ishers in the West this season, managed only 62 yards rushing in the first half but romped for 138 in the second half, mostly by Read. The punishing fullback car- ried 26 times for 156 yards and two touchdowns. Al Ford got the other Saskatchewan major while Abendschan added two field goals and three converts. Bob Larose caught two touch- down passes for Winnipeg. De- fensive end Jim Heighten scored the other when he recov- ered a blocked punt in the end zone and quarterback Don Jonas added one field goal, two converts and a single. Winnipeg had opportunities to put the game out of reach. The team penetrated inside the Sas- katchewan 30-yard-line three times in the second quarter and came away with one point. Interceptions played a major role in the Saskatchewan vic- tory. Lewis Cook grabbed a Jonas pass early in the fourth quarter and it resulted in a field goal that made the score 24-17. Meanwhile the Ottawa Rough Riders take a 12-poinl lead into Hamilton Sunday as a result of Saturday's 19-7 win over the Tiger-Cats, but accord- ing to Rider coach Jack Gotta, it doesn't mean a thing. "I was hoping for 20 or 22 points but the 12 we have really are said Gotta after Ottawa won the opening game of the Eastern Football Confer e n c e two-game, total-pom series. "If we were going down for a sudden-death game, we'd have to give away 10 or 12 points jus for being in their home park." This was Ottawa's first win in four games this season over the TiCats and was due in big part to the way the Riders were able not only to keep Hamilton quar- terback Chuck Ealey in his pro- tective pocket most of the day but also to throw him for losses again and again. If you play Ealey only once a season, "he'll kill said Gotta. "But over several games, you get to know a bit about him." Riders knew enough Saturday to limit Hamilton to a net ground gain of five yards. Ea- Jey completed 13 of 28 passes tor another 197 yards. Ottawa racked up a game of- fence of 436 yards with Rick Cassata passing for 321 and the ground attack gaining 115.
