Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 23, 1974 Stewart takes opener Thirty-two of the top rinks in Southern Alberta and various parts of the province opened play Friday in the three-day Grey Cup Rainbow bonspiel at the Lethbridge Curling Club. After the first two draws very few surprises were in store for competitors as favored rinks, in most cases, chalked up victories. Bruce Stewart's Calgary foursome, defending cham- pions, got past veteran Lethbridge skip Cliff Forry in the opening round. Stewart and his mates, in three years at the Grey Cup event, have always managed to take home silverware. It appears that this year is no different. Lawrence Lennon's Lethbridge rink dropped to the "B" event of the bon- spiel after losing to Gerry Actually little to choose between teams Benson's Medicine Hat rink. Benson's foursome has well- known Larry Fransden skip- ping Terry Lyon of Pincher Creek and four Lethbridge rinks are still alive in section "A" after Friday's action. Lyon bested Doug Speelman of Edmonton in the first draw- Friday to advance. Meanwhile, of 11 host club quartets just four are left in the running. Gerry Coyne, who met Scott Henderson in this morning's first draw, got past Perry Seitz of Medicine Hat Friday while Henderson downed Harry Lively of Fort Macleod. Alf Lagler of the city follow- ed Coyne and Henderson as he dumped Norm Dalsto of Calgary in the last draw Fri- day night as did Lyle Davis who won out over Quadro Heller of Golden Prairie.

THIRTY-TWO RINKS OPENED PLAY FRIDAY IN THE GREY CUP RAINBOW BONSPIEL Alou.ettes had a rough second half VANCOUVER (CP) Someone once said that those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat their mistakes. Since statistics are the prime form of football history, what can be learned from the 1974 Canadian Foot- ball League season figures on the two Grey Cup par- Es- kimos and Montreal Alouettes? There is little to choose be- tween the two clubs in things that count. Montreal had a 9-5-2 won- lost-tied record while Ed- monton was only slightly better at 10-5-1. "Alouettes scored 339 points, six less than the Eskimos, and had 271 scored against them com- pared with 247 for the West- ern champions. Perhaps more significant is that Montreal was hot early in the season, winning seven of its first nine games, and defeated only one Western club, British Columbia Lions, tying Edmonton 28-28 and los- ing to Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Saskatchewan Roughriders and Calgary Stampeders. From mid-September the Alouettes were able to beat only one club. Ottawa Rough Riders, and they aid that three times including the muddy Eastern final. Edmonton, on the other hand, had a less up-and-down season, recording 2-1 records against its four Western op- ponents and losing to only one Eastern team. Toronto Argonauts. Late in the season, the Es- kimos came through with one victory over Winnipeg and two in a row over B.C. before dis- posing of Saskatchewan in the final But while the momentum may appear to be with Edmonton, there isn't much difference between the two finalists in such departments as total offence and first downs.

Edmonton, with Tom Wilkinson running the show and Bruce Lemmerman providing backup quarterback support, was only a fraction better with total offence of 178 yards. The Eskimos had 295 first downs, just seven more than the Alouettes. and both came close to the ideal of a 50-50 split between rushing and passing. Edmonton ran for 129. passed for 145 and got 21 via penalties while Montreal ran for 142. passed for 134 and picked up 12 on penalties. Montreal, with Steve Ferrughelli carrying the ball 228 times for 1.134 yards, had a net rushing total of yards. Edmonton, relying mainly on Roy Bell with 1.341 yards, rushed for a net of 2.256. But what could be important is that Jones, running 90 times out of his quarterback position, was Montreal's second-best rusher with 577 yards and an impressive 6.4- yard average. If he starts in the Grey Cup game and is healthy he could be a big fac- tor in the outcome. Net passing yardage was also with 2.- 902 and Edmonton with the Eskimos had a better record in yards lost with 136 to 384 for the Als. Which may support Wilkin- son's contention that he owes his success to a fine Ed- monton offensive line. That may also have been the reason Wiikinson was able to complete 173 of 262 passes for a remarkable 66 per cent.

Nov. 23 in Calgary, the Canadian Football League decid- ed Friday. Jake Gaudaur. com- missioner of the CFL. said the date was set during a meeting of owners. He added that both Toronto and Montreal have bid for the 1976 game, but a decision would not be made on where to hold it until next February at the C'FL's annual meeting in Toronto LAY Off THE srurriFir (MADE ME V DEAF.'.' SATISFACTION 6UARAN7EED I STUFF I IS A 'EUuJVA Pronghorns drop real heartbreaker matching his own CFL record, while Jones completed 163 of 311 for 52.4 per cent. Top Edmonton receivers were Tyrone Walls with 50 catches for 623 yards and Don Warrington with 44 for 509. Favorite Montreal target was Johnny Rodgers with 60 catches for a whopping in the CFL. And when that is added to the fact that Rodgers also rushed for 492 yards on 87 carries for a 5.7 average you realize his value to the Als and his poten- tial as a gamebreaker. Wilkinson gave up only seven interceptions and Lemmerman 10 while Jones surrendered 22 and Wade five. On the other side, the Montreal defence made 23 interceptions to 17 for Edmon- ton. The Eskimos had a small edge in punting. Garry Le- febvre averaged 40.9 yards while Montreal's Wade was 39.8 and Wally Buono 38. Wilkinson filled in briefly when Lefebvre was hurt but would probably rather not be reminded of his 24.9-yard average Edmonton also had the better record on field goals with Dave Cutler hitting on 34 of 53. his longest from 56 yards, while Don Sweet of Montreal was good on 24 of 41. including one from 52 yards. SASKATOON (Special) The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns suffered their se- cond straight heart breaking loss in Canada West Universi- ty basketball action Friday night as they dropped a 92-90 decision to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. The locals lost 65-62 to UBC Thunder-birds last Saturday after a season opening vic- tory, and the loss in Saskatoon dropped their record to one win and two losses. Forward Roger Ganes was outstanding for the Huskies as he poured 30 points through the hoop while last year's Canada West scoring leader. Dean Faris. added 20. The Pronghorns were led once again by rookie guard Richard Foggo. who fired in 24 points. Lauren Edlund was next in line with 21 and Phil Letham added 13. Edlund was outstanding in other categories as well, leading the team in shooting percentage with a 667c norm, and pulling down eight rebounds as well. The Pronghorns led 43-39 at the half, and battled back and forth with the Huskies throughout the final 20 minutes. "It was a tough one to lose." said coach Robin Fry. "We've got to start taking those close ones." Pronghorns drubbed 12-1 EDMONTON (Special) The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns suffered a humiliating 12-1 defeat at the hands of the NAIT Ookpiks Friday night in Alberta College Athletic Conference action. NAIT built up period leads of 3-0 and 7-0 in coasting to the triumph. Wayne Bowes scored the only U of L goal. He cited the inability of the club to stop the Huskies inside game as the major factor in the loss "The Huskies can really shoot the ball from the out- side But we stopped them there. Then Ganes started killing us underneath In women's action, the U of S Huskiettes built up a 27-17 lead by halftime. and coasted to a 58-30 triumph over Jack Lilja's Pronghorns. Debbie Yanota led the locals in the scoring depart- ment with 10 points. Volleyball The University of Lethbridge Pronghorn men's varsity came up with a pair of wins in Alberta Major Men's Volleyball League action Fri- day night at the U of L gym- nasium. The Pronghorns edged the University of Calgary Dinosaurs 3-2, and then dumped Mount Royal College 3-1. Coach Jim Day cited the play of Hugh Harding and Ron Vogel as major factors in the two wins. The locals beat the Braun- tosaurs 15-9, 5-15, 15-7, 10-15 and 15-9. Against Mount Royal, it was 15-9. 4-15, 15-10. 15-6 The junior varsity did not fare as well, however, as they dropped three straight games to both Calgary clubs.
