Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Catholic Central {alls in iinal Zeniths keep tourney title at home The Magrnlh Zeniths couldn't have had a belter weekend as lliey captured their own fourth annual invitational basketball tournament championship title. The host Zeniths bested sev- en other top southern Alberta high school teams In a two-day aflair. The Zeniths earned their sec- ond tourney title by belting the Lcthbridge Catholic Central Cougars 52-34 in the champion- ship Iinal Saturday night. Rick Ponomar paced Hie Zen- itlis with a 14-polnt performance while John Balderson and Tim added n points apiece. Peter Sikora notched 17 points for the Cougars while Handy Iloycr chipped in with 10. Meanwhile Taber thumped the Cardslon Cougars CO-34 to take home the third place title. Robin Hansen hooped 39 big points to lead Taber while Jim Gotta ivunted 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 be thrown out. He's probably more convinced he's right today. Because of that rule, the season is over for TLorpe and the Bombers, while Saskatchewan Roughriders go on to the Grey Cup by virtue of 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 team gels a single point. 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-0 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 look 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 inlent on blowing their enrly lead. A scries 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- cliuk, thwarted Loyola on three consecutive thrusts. Meanwhile the Waterloo Lutheran Golden Hawks, with B powerful ground game and n captive pass defence, walloped PI. Mary's Huskies 50-17 Satur- day in Ihc Allantic Bowl. "A learn effort like today nnd we got the championship." Hawk coach Dave Knight said matler-of-Iactly after the lop- sided contest which gave his (cam a hcrlh in Ihe national college final in noxl Sal in-day against University of Alberta Golden Bears. Western Football Conference championship. Place-kicker Jack Abends- chan missed a 34-yard field-goal with six seconds left, Winnipeg kicked it out, Saskatchewan quaitoback Ron Lancaster booted the ball back into the end zone and the Bombers again returned it to the field. 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 saM the no-yards penalty was a good call, but said the same penalty should have been assessed Saskatche- wan when Bombers' Mike Law SASKATCHEWAN !7 WINNIPEG 5ASK WPG n is 2M First downs Yards rushing Yards passing Net offence PBSSCS In'erceDfions-yarOs Punrs-averagc Penalties-yards 140 2tl 208 3j5 ..11-318 9-39.5 7-2 5-25 fielded Abendschan's wide field-; goal attempt. It was the running of fullback George Reed and costly rough- in? penalties against Winnipeg that allowed the Houghriders lo move into a 24-24 tie with three minutes left. Winnipeg led 21-7 at halflime and 24-14 going into the final quarter. But on the final play of Ihe third quarter Mickey Doyle left the game with a broken leg. That, both clubs, agreed, was Ihe vital turning point. "When Mickey got hurt that was it our oulside was hurling, [hey ran all over Spavilal said afterwards.

It was the linebackers who stopped our running game in the first half." Roughriders, third-place fin- ishers in the West this season, managed only 62 yards rushing in the first half but romped for 138 in Ihe second half, mostly by Head. 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- doim 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.

Lewis Cook grabbed a Jonas pass early in the fourth auarter and it resulted in a field goal that made the score 24-17. Meanwhile the Ottawa Hough Riders take a 12-point lead into Hamilton Sunday as a result of Saturday's 19-7 win over tlie 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-point series. "If were going down for a sudden-death game, we'd have to give away 10 or J2 points just for being in their home park." This was Ottawa's iirst 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 In limit Hamilton to a net ground gain of five yards. Ea- ley completed 13 of 28 passes lor another 197 yards. Ottawa racked up a game of- fence of 436 yards with Rick Cassala passing for 321 and the ground attack gaining 115.
