Bui it may have de- served a heller fate. The Blue Bombers dropped a narrow 27-24 ver- dict to Saskatchewan noughriders last Sunday in the Western Conference Final in Winnipeg. The Bombers led 24-7 at one juncture in the game and some people say, "they deserved to lose it they blew that big a lead." I didn't see the game, I took my daughter to see Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny. I missed the last play of the game when an exchange of kicks led to the beginning of a long winter for the Blue Bombers. I watched the replay two nights later but didn't see enough to really state the case for the de- fence or for Ihe offence for that mailer. So 1 did the next best Ihmg. I waited for a Winnipeg news- paper and got a first hand story on the last play of Sunday's game. It was here that I learned, possibly, the Bombers and their supporters, deserved a better fate. The game ended in complete bedlam and mass confusion. Having lied the game 24-24 with re- maining, plunging the premises into gloom, the Rough- riders rode their fourth quarter momentum within range for Jack Abendschan's talented toe. However, Abendschan was wide on his 34-yard at- tempt on the "last play" of the game, and the fun began. Bomber deep man Mike Law couldn't run the ball out so he did the next best thing, he punted it out. Roughrider quarterback Ron Lancaster fielded the ball and promptly left-footed it back into the end zone. This time Paul Williams gathered it in and he kicked it out. Lineback Charlie Collins retrieved it for Saskatchewan on the sidelines. Bombers were charged with infringing on the five-yard zone that protects a punt receiver, which, indeed, Collins had become. Tins was the explanation later, although the of- ficial game statistics listed the penalty as holding. Since a game cannot end on a penalty, Abendschan, as you already know, gat a second chance from the 32-yard line and it was all over for Jim Spavital and his Bombers. Spavital stormed unto the field after the officials to protest the developments. "There's no question there were no yards given on Collins. but I thought they could have called the same thing in our end zone. It's a helluva way to end the bristled the coach. Spavital was put- ting it mildly. It was the only play I saw in the game. I would have to agree that Williams was not allowed five yards on the return kick. You have to salute the Roughriders. I can't help thinking, though, that Spavital, Jonas, Herron, Thorpe and the rest of the Bombers deserved a better fate. From a Saskatchewan standpoint, all was beauti- ful. Lancaster, who along with George Reed spelled doom for the Bombers, described the final field goal, the one that was good, in humorous tones after it was all over. "I taiow Jack can kick it this time if I hold it he said. "He likes to take forever to get set and some- times I call signals before he's ready. So he looked at me and said 'Would you mind waiting for me this time, Then he kicked it through." gone to Hamilton with 12 and 17 point leads only to get swamped by the Tiger-Cats and bounced from the Grey Cup game. That was in 1959 and 19G4. Coach Jack Gotta didn't even wait until last Saturday's game was over before striding back and forth in front of his players' bench muttering, "Those 12 poinls aren't enough." Gotla wanted 22 if he could get them, he explained later. Playing on the Hamilton field this Sunday and leading by 12 poinls was like starting the game even-stcven. LONG MEMORY Gotla also remembered going into Calgary with Saskalchewan noughriders trailing the Stampedcrs 35-9 only to win the 1963 Western semi-Iinal 48-47 by otitscorlng the Stamps 39-12 in the second game. The Rider defence was awe- some at times Saturday and quarterback Eick Cassata en- joyed perhaps his test day in two years as a Rider. "If we don't come on in Ham- ilton jusl where we left off here, those points won't be nearly echoed assistant coach George Brancato this week. 'Beeause you know those Hamilton guys will be ready to play." The Riders were to hold their final practice of the week in Ot- tawa today. The frozen practice field gives poor footing and Gotta has decided to pack up and go lo Hamilton Friday, a day ahead of schedule, to work out on the artifical turf at Ivor Wynne Stadium. SOME CRITICISM There has been some criticism of Cassata for attempting a long pass late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game. It was intercepted and paved the way for Hamilton's only touch- down. Gotta doesn't join in the criti- cism. He said Cassata thought Hugh Oldham was in the clear and saw the chance for another Ottawa touchdown. Criticism isn't new to Cas- sala. There have been Saturday afternoons when nolhing seemed to go right for the of- fence. Winnipeg coach Jim Spavital, after watching the Ridtrs beal his Blue Bomliers here 11-7 with all of Ihe poinls coming from kicking, said Ottawa's trouble is "it can't score." ENJOYS LIFE "A quarterback in this town has to keep his ears plugged, play the game and enjoy says Cassata. Riders have scored just over 21 points a game over their 14- game schedule. Gerry Organ got 141 of them kicking. "We won 11 games and lost three during the regular sea- answers Cassata. "We scored when we had to, game afler game." "My department (offence) is going to get this team to the Grey he adds. The final game of the confer- e n c e two-game, total-point series is scheduled for noon MST Sunday wilh the winner to advance to the Grey Cup na- tional championship against Saskatchewan Roughriders in Hamillon Sun. Dec. 3. The game will be broadcast on the full CTV network. Cahill won't change loyalty TORONTO (CP) -Leo Cah- ill, deposed coach of Toronto Argonauts, called a news con- ference Wednesday to "make it crystal clear" that he has no desire to be coach or general manager of any Canadian Foot- ball League team. CahiU was dumped by Argo owner John Bassett after the 1971 Eastern Football Confer- ence champions finished last this year and missed the play- offs. He said he called the confer- ence to clarify his position fol- lowing persisting rumors in Montreal that he was consid- ering one or both of two Alouette jobs said to be avail- of coach Sam Et- cheverry and general manager J. I. Albrecht. "I have not campaigned for the general manager or coach- i n g Job with Montreal said Cahitl, "and I want to make it crystal clear that I don't plan to coach for Montreal or any other team in the Canadian Football League." He added that he hoped "Sam and J.I. retain their places with Montreal indefinitely." AN ARGO AT HEART He explained that he has no interest in coaching elsewhere in the CFL because "after six years with the Argos I'd find it difficult to change allegances." Cahill said he was prepared for the ousting by Argos, which had been rumored for several weeks, "but it still came as a shock. I still find it very difficult to accept." His future remained clouded, but CahiU admitted he had talked to "some people down there (the United States) and I have an opportunity lo go lo a couple of staffs." He did not elaborate what teams or what positions he had been considering in football, but said he had also been exploring some possibilities outside foot- ball.
