Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Graham Kelly Many times in the the Western final football game was to good that the Grey Cup seemed anti-climatic. Such was certainly the case last Sunday when the Edmonton Eskimos borrowed a page from Ron Lancaster's book and. dispatched the Roughriders from Saskatchewan to the sidelines with final minute heroics. In zero degree on a field like and man- produced the Edmonton Eskimos ended their long foot- ball and will now deservedly head for Toronto and an encounter with those other Rough Riders from Ot- tawa. Edmonton has to be given full marks for their victory They beat Saskatchewan three put of four times' this including the play-off. When they fell behind by five points with two minutes to didn't panic or lose their cool. they came right back at a determined band of Roughriders and put the The last time Edmonton played in the Grey Cup game was in 1960. Under the tutelage of Eagle and the field generalship of James Dickinson the Eskimos went down to defeat at the hands of Russ Ron Ronnie Stewart and the rest of the'Ot- tawa Rough Riders It is un- fortunate in a sense that Ed- monton picked 1973 to end their search for the Holy Grail of Canadian football because I believe that their challenge is exceptionally great when you consider the wealth of talent that Coach Jack Gotta has assembled in the nation's capital. Ottawa is a tough football well-coached and full of desire On Sunday they will make their 14th appearance in the Grey Cup after having won eight and lost five in previous engagements An excellent v and a tribute to one of the finest football organizations in the country Money doesn't build a foot- ball although naturally Let's take a look at how each club stacks up against the other. In the offensive the Riders will go with fullback Jim and backs Terry Tim Foley and Jim Green Evenson is the second best fullback in the country. and Foley are good good pass as well as competent runners Edmonton will go with Roy a plus Don Warrington and Calvin Harrell Perhaps Gene Foster will play. Bell may well equal the rushing output of but as far as the rest of the backfield is a decided edge to Ottawa Looking at Ed- monton has the incomparable George McGowan and the in- consistent Tyrone Walls Ot- tawa will go with Rhome Nix- Hugh and Tom Pullen. Edmonton has Gerry Lefebvre at flanker. McGowan will be the best receiver on the field as a unit or group of I would give a slight edge to Ottawa. Along the offensive the Westerners should have the Bob Lanny Roger Charlie Turner and Willie Martin are an excellent aggregation. Roger Moe Bill Collins and John Schuette are good but not as good as the Eskimos. On give the edge to the East Rudy Wayne Charlie Bran- Laputka and Piaskoski points up on the board. When Lancaster rallied his crew in the dying rookie John Beaton came up with the big interception to shatter Saskatchewan's Grey Cup hopes for 1973. You would have to go a long way in order to find a more exciting football game. The strong at Clarke Stadium and millions more at home in the comfort of the liv- ing room witnessed Canadian football at its best. Wilkinson and Lemmerman demonstrated tremendous courage in the face of an awesome Saskatchewan rush. Old Man George just kept rolling right along to pick up 168 yards in what has to be one the finest perfor- mances of his career. Dave Cutler and Jack Abendshan were simply magnificent. I just can't see how Sunday's national championship can possibly top the superlative performances put on in the frozen north to settle the Western championship it helps Winnipeg and Saskatchewan have enjoyed the most success over the last 20 years in Cana- dian ball This is due 'to out- standing front office manage- ment and great coaching Frank Clair of Ralph Sazio of Bud Jerry Eagle Ken Preston are just some of the people that have demonstrated superior savvy when it comes to running foot- ball teams. All of those men have something in common a knowledge that the key to success in this game is a solid corps of Canadians. They have always had good Canadians They also believe that the secret to successful football is aggressive line not fancy halfbacks with lots of press clippings. Ottawa and Saskatchewan often lacked big names They have never lacked no- talent Edmonton will be facing a aggressive basic football team on Sunday when they take on the Ottawa Rough Riders in Hogtown's CNE Stadium make up the best defensive line in the country John Ron Dave Ed Molstad and Ron Forwick are not quite as good I would give an edge to Ot- tawa at linebacker as well with 'Mark Jerry Campbell and Wayne Giardme better than Sam Dick Huff and Ceaser Belser The work of the defensive backfield is always important Only Saskatchewan had more interceptions than Ottawa's 28 Dick Al and Woodward have more experience and are better than Billy John John Larry Highbaugh and Jim Henshall. The kicking game is even Dick Adams and Gerry Lefebvre are both and there is little to choose between Gerry Organ and Dave Cutler What about If Jerry Keeling is you will see one of the best money or clutch quarterbacks in the business If Cassata Ottawa won't be as effective. Lemmerman and Wilkinson are both excellent quarter- backs A slight edge to Ed- monton As a my heart is with the Edmonton Eskimos my head is with Ot- a club I consider to be simply the best in the country Ottawa will win their ninth Grey Cup come Sunday after- noon in Toronto. -NATIONAL COURTESY CARD The. motor vehicle described on the back of identifi- cation Card has been leased from a Ford Authorized Leasing System of Canada Lessor It would be appreciated If every courtesy Including prompt and quality service and any appropriate fleet discounts on parts be to the operator of this vehfcle I satton Card la Can CapM-ToM I I MM CMfeM ew leeelng dapt. tar Mw i inn LEASING DhManirf Only eight Riders around from 1969 Grey Cup club Centennials explode for eapy win CANADIAN PRESS Last-period outbursts by Calgary Centennials and Swift Current Broncos resulted in home-ice victories Tuesday night in Western Canada Hockey League play. -The Centennials' down 3-2 after the second scored six unanswered goals to take an 8-3 decision over Victoria Cougars.

Dennis Dave Faulkner and Bob Laird had given the Pats what seemed a commanding lead Blair Chapman of Saskatoon scored twice to provide the difference between the Blades and the Clubs OTTAWA Of the tt who wore the uniform of Ottawa Rough Riders in the 1W Grey Cup only elfht will take to the field for Sunday's Canadian Football League championship. Which indicates the recruiting and the work Jack Gotta has done since taking over the coaching job from Frank Clair in 1970. Among the among the missing are those of quarterback RUM halfback Ron flanker Whit Tucker and end Margene Adkins. The Riders plunged to last place in the Eastern Conference in were third in 1971 and tied Hamilton for first last year. Gotta put it all together in 1973 although the Riders had to survive a shaky four-game losing streak at the start of the year to do it The players still with the club from the Grey Cup winners of 1969 are Jerry Tom Roger Wayne Giar- Dan Wayne Moe Doug Collins and Tom Pullen a defensive won't be playing Sunday though. He'll be on the sidelines with a broken arm The Riders are still hoping quarterback Jerry Keeling will play although the veteran can nanny waft with a leg tickets Rick Cassata gets the starting quarterback job and Gottahopet Keeling will be able to come out of the bullpen if needed. If Keeling is not then the backup falls on Jim the offensive halfback who played .quarterback at college. I don't want to even think about said Gotta. Presuming all the Ottawa fans who purchased Grey Cup go to the they'll be strong at the Cana- dian National Exhibition Sunday for the a rti. MST game of is tow many fans bought tickets friends.
