Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Novtfflbw 1173 CHINOOK TOURS CHRISTMAS In DISNEYLAND MM tvrtihh hiolndM Ht tin. MnmtMtm. CONTACT ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE MALL PHONf Pat Sullivan I'm not going to make a bunch of money on this year's Grey Cup. I have just one small wager and I'm glad that there isn't much more Edmonton money to be found. There is a good chunk of Edmonton Eskimo money around but the guys who want to blow it I don't want to take it from. They should know better. It has been stated in this column more than once that Ot- tawa Rough Riders would win the annual Canadian Football League classic this Sunday. I made that clear when they obtained Jerry Keeling after he was given the nine of hearts by the Calgary Stampeders. And it serves the Stampeder brass right. They kept Jim Duncan around as head Popgun Peter Liske at quarterback and cut loose Keeling. that's fine. Keeling will sip from the Grey football's holiest grail this side of the 49th while the rest of Stampeders think about a year that saw them miss the playoffs for a second straight time. I'm not going to go into a bunch of statistics. If your mind is made up to bet on the Eskimos I certainly don't want to confuse you with facts. For my money the two clubs have very little to choose between with the exception of balance. Ottawa Rough who should upend the Esks by eight have by far the best balanced club in the CFL. while scoring just over 20 points a game this gave up almost 18. Ottawa on the over 19 but gave up just One fact that may be deceiving when looking the Ottawa season is their total offence as compared to the Eskimos. Edmonton rolled up yards as compared to Ottawa's Esks. played two more games than did the Roughies and played in a much weaker conference. Ottawa lost their first four games but came roaring back and at present look like the best club in Canada. I told you at the outset I wasn't about to bore you with and I won't. I can't make you change your mind anymore than you could mine. But keep in mind I have picked the last three Grey Cups cor- won't talk about the other 10 or so I have Ottawa and Edmonton have not met in a Grey Cup en- counter since 1960. That's Edmonton's they have been un- able to make it. When the two clubs last met it was 16-6 Ottawa in a game played at Vancouver. I remember bits of the game and if memory serves me correctly the Eskimos were hurting and stunk the joint out. Another small fact to keep in mind when considering this year's game Ottawa belted the Eskimos 32-20 in Ottawa this past September in a game that saw Edmonton cough up the foot- ball nine times. Count them six three each by Bruce Lemmerman and Tom Wilkinson and three fumbles. Edmonton may have just had a bad game. But then Ottawa may have just had a good one. My wife Betty bless doesn't know that much about football. But loaded with women's intuition she feels Ot- tawa will win simply because of Keeling. may be the only reply you get from her but take this into consideration. She liked Joe Rudi and the Oakland Athletics won the World Series. She thought Carney Henley was okay and Hamilton Tiger Cats won the Grey Cup last year. She says that Phil Esposito is best because he is So you see what I'm up against. You can't argue with logic like that. And just so you can't say I have never done anything for you the score of Cup Sunday will be 28-20. And I don't have any pool tickets with that score on them.

Fry is all good start for club By LLOYD YAMAGISH1 Herald Sports Writer looks like pre-game strategy can really pay Coach Robin who is just beginning his first season head coach of the Universi- ty of Lethbridge got his chargers started out on the right foot in Canada West University Athletic Associa- tion Men's Basketball League competition. Friday night the Pronghorns opened their 1973-74 season schedule by downing the king size University of Calgary Dinosaurs 73-64 before some 300 spectators at the U of L The who sport a comfortable height advantage over the were favored to win the opening ball game but the locals' high spirits and along with Fry's game plan. changed the course of events. The Pronghorns wanted the victory badly and achieved their goal by simply playing Fry's full court press strategy to its fullest advan- tage. On many occasions the taller Dinosaurs were caught looking for a way out of the full court press but could not find an escape route. The Pronghorns did commit a few errors while using the full court press defence but on the the attack was successful. Coach Fry was extremely happy with how things turned out but just couldn't single out players who played a key role in his club's victory. he did point out that Roger Baldry's six points in the latter stages of the game proved to be the back-breaker. Baldry was not only superb in the latter stages of the game but was also a key player in. the Pronghorns' full court press throughout the 40 minutes of action. Always .on the the shifty forward broke up a number of the Dinosaurs' plays as well as picking off 11 rebounds and scoring 23 points. Phil Letham also had the hot hand for the locals hooping 15 points while Max Zaugg added 12. Don Lament paced the Dinosaurs with a 17-point per- formance while Tom Bishop and Lyle Leslie chipped in with 14 and 13 points respec- tively. Meanwhile the University of Calgary Dinnies scored a hard fought 50-46 victory over the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns in their 1973-74 CWUAAWBL opener last night. It was a comeback win all Rodgers clears quote TORONTO Johnny Rodgers says he was mis- interpreted earlier in the Canadian Football League season when he called himself an ordinary shortly after joining Montreal Alouettes. I mean was that if I made the superstar I'd still be just an ordinary said the former Nebraska star and 1972 winner of the Heisman trophy which goes to the top college player. Rodgers was named the out- standing rookie in the CFL this year. In explaining the misunder- the quiet spoken whose versatility allowed him to be equally dangerous running the ball.or running a pass said he likes to people the same way as I always have and not on a pedestal that some superstars have allowed Uhemselves to be placed know the statement sounds but that's ex- actly what I meant.

He plans to fornain in Montreal in the off-season signed to a three year contract calling for a boning up on tennis and taking French lessons. The he clear- ly indicates he'd remain in Canada for timje. the way for the Dinnies who trailed by six points with only five minutes remaining in the game. On the other it was a heart breaking loss for the local gals who-.wer.e just' minutes away from opening the. season with a victory. Holding a six -.point edge with some five minutes the locals ran into foul trouble with no replacements. had to finish off the game with only four players on the court. Barb Paton led the locals with a 14 point outing while Lorell Lilja. Sandra Knight and Kathy Bardgett chipped in with nine apiece. Pat Walker paced the Din- nies' attack with 11 points while Bonnie Cameron and Moiya Pilling added nine each. All four clubs will be in ac- tion again tonight at the U of L gym. The Dinnies and Pronghorns are set for an start while the Dinosaurs and Pronghorns meet again at FREE THROWS Larry Baker was also a standout for the Pronghorns as he hooped eight points while grabbing 11 rebounds It also seems Larry has become a great leader on the court. Peter Sikora and Gary Williams came up with good solid per- formances Sikora started out slowly for the Pronghorns but came on strong Williams netted nine points and knocked down 10 rebounds The Pronghorn who had four girls fouled out of the game only needed one more player which could have changed the outlook of the game Four against five isn't fair odds to say the least. At home tonight Lethbridge Longhorns will play host to Calgary Canucks in Alberta Junior Hockey League action tonight at at Henderson Ice Centre. The locals travel to Red Deer Sunday. Bernie left and Dale Emmellkamp are expected to see plenty of action this weekend.
