With ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL Centre Village Mall Phone 328-3201 Third Section Pat Sullivan A hunch A Is 24, Esks 19 If the majority of so-called football experts have their way two songs will start the 1974 Grey Cup game Sunday in Van- couver. For the Edmonton Eskimos there will be the National Anthem, for the Alouettes, Taps. It has been a long time since one club has had so very little going for it heading into a national final as do Marv Levy and the Alouettes. And for the life of me I can't see why. What makes the Eskimos anywhere from 4-14 point favorites? Is defeating Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Western Conference final a license to print Grey Cup victory banners9 Only Jim Young of the B.C. Lions gives the Alouettes any chance. Him, and of course the Montreal sports writers and broadcasters. But that's only natural. I'm not saying that the Eskimos won't win the Grey Cup. They have an excellent football team, but there are two teams involved in the contest and remember, anything can happen in a one-game showdown. I can recall the cries of foul and the shedding of tears after last year's 22-18 loss to Ottawa Rough Riders by Eskimos fans and players alike. "If Wilkie or Lemmerman (quarterbacks Tom Wilkinson or Bruce Lemmerman) had been healthy it would have been a different they said. Hogwash. Football is a game of hard knocks and it just so happened that the Esks came out second best in the battle It has been said often enough that in a one-game, sudden- death encounter expect the unexpected. As I said before, the Eskimos have a fine football club. If their quarterbacking remains sound they could retain their Grey Cup dominance over the Als. (They are three-for- However, Wilkinson, who was named Canada's out- standing football player Friday, is reported to have a sore back. Eskimo coach Ray Jauch says it is just some of Wilkinson's excess fat giving him trouble. Who knows? Edmonton fans are confident of their club's chances. Alouettes, at least here in the west, have been all but written off as champions of a weaker conference. That remains to be seen. I'm not in a position to give you a rundown on the two teams according to position, but for the life of me I can't see where Ed- monton is so much better to rate as such solid favorites. Looking over their respective rosters with a quick glance shows me some pretty fair football talent on both sides. Eskimos, I realize, have an excellent split end in George McGowan but then how can you discount Johnny Rodgers? Peter Delia Riva has been an excellent clutch performer for Montreal while Tyrone Walls has done the same for the Eskimos. If Wilkinson, as I said before, is on, it could be the difference. Jimmy Jones, the number one pivot for the Als, is ailing. How badly he is hurt will not be known until he is tested. Eskimos do have the edge in runningbacks but when you consider Als led the nation in four of five offensive categories you can bet they will be heard from. I said at the start of the year that Edmonton and Ottawa would repeat as Grey Cup opponents with Ottawa winning again. I have been wrong before, and with any kind of luck, I will be around to make more mistakes while fearlessly predicting the outcome of games. Sunday's game should be the supreme test for Wilkinson, the big game. We'll see how well he does when all the marbles are on the line. Me, I have a silly hunch Montreal will upset the Esks 24-19. Don't, I beg of you, ask me why. Suns blast Drumheller TABER (Special) Taber Golden Suns outshot Drumheller Falcons 47-23 en route to a 11-4 victory in Alberta Junior Hockey League play Friday night.

TYPEWRITERS Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday, November 23, 1974 Pages 21 to 32 Churchill edges LCI in close one Zeniths take aim at fourth title By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Magrath Zeniths were anything but the perfect hosts Friday night as they manhandled Stirling Lakers 75-18 on the opening night of the Magrath High School Basketball Tournament Taking dead aim on their fourth con- secutive Magrath Tournament cham- pionship, the Zeniths held Stirling to only four field goals throughout the entire game. The Zeniths took command early. holding the Lakers to a mere two points in the first quarter, and building up an overwhelming 40-9 lead by the half. The constantly flustered Lakers could only muster one field goal in the second half and had to rely on their foul shooting for the bulk of their points. At one stage of the game the Lakers managed only one point in over nine minutes of play The entire Magrath team contributed to the scoring binge, with Barry Mehew leading the team with 12 points. Ron Marker added 10 more and Alan Wilde and Ted Hayes hooped nine points apiece. Holt Zaugg was the top scorer for the Lakers with six points. The best game of the night pitted two Lethbridge teams against each other with the Winston Churchill Bulldogs edging the LCI Rams 52-48 in a contest that could have gone either way Rams took an early 6-0 lead in the game and were ahead 9-8 at the end of the initial quarter. But the Bulldogs took the lead over and never relinquished it with only 35 seconds remaining in the half They went to the dressing room with a 25-22 edge. One of the main differences in the ball game was the play of Mike Mirkovich for the Bulldogs. Besides scoring 16 points he was a tower of strength under both backboards throughout the game. Barry Schmidt accounted for 15 more Bulldog points and Doug Kitaguichi had 12. Mike Sheen lead the Ram attack with 16 points. 12 of which came in the final half of play Dave Adams was next in line with eight. Cardston St. Mary's Warriors inability at the foul strip cost them a victory over the Catholic Central Cougars of Lethbridge. The Warriors were only to hit on two of 15 foul attempts and saw the Cougars take a squeaker. 42-40. John Mackley led the Cougars with 18 points and Roman Ksiazek and Steve Dev- cic chipped in with nine apiece Warriors, who had problems throughout the game trying to work to the inside of the tough Cougar defence, got 16 points from Mike Day Chief Michael Oka added eight points for the losers Catholic Central was ahead 23-18 at half time Cardston Cougars, using a fast break to good advantage, out-ran Taber W R. Myers Trotters 89-22. The Cougar fast break and good defence were responsible for running up 22 con- secutive points over an eight minute stretch in the first half. They were able to head for the dressing room at the close of the half with a huge 41-8 lead Three boys hit double figures for the Cardston team, and every member of the squad contributed at least two points. Ralph West hit for 18 points, while Don Yuill had 15 and Todd Wolsey added 13 more for the Cougars. Tim Jasperson was the strength of the Taber offence with 10 points and Harry Bikkenng hooped six The two-day, eight team tournament will wind up this evening with the cham- pionship game going at eight. REBOUNDS The Cardston Cougar club was running so fast in the first quarter the referees and the Taber Trotters had trouble keeping pace Roman Ksiazek looked impressive in the rebounding department for the Catholic Central team the Magrath High School gym was packed for three of the four games only the opening five o'clock contest was played before a sparse audience the gym can hold upwards of 700 people there were only two technical fouls called in the four games a tribute to the sportsmanship shown by the high school boys Zenith coach Ray Stevenson substituted freely throughout the Stirling game referee Kaye Jensen had to leave the LCI Churchill game with just over six minutes remaining due to a charley horse Mike Day Chief stole the ball numerous times during the Warrior Cougar contest. however the St Mary's youngster failed to cash in on many of his chances the tournament play continued through this morning and afternoon Mark Baldry's loss through fouls with six minutes remaining was a costly blow to the LCI team the of- ficiating was fair and only one spectator caused any kind of a problem for the referees.
