But Wilkie got the Esks roll- only to be stopped when hit high by linebacker Jerry Campbell and in the ribs by Smith at the Ottawa 12. He was helped off the field. Wilkinson made no accusa- but offensive tackle Charlie Turner said the Ot- tawa players took cheap shots at the Edmonton quarter- backs. In any that hit proved the turning point. Bruce Lem- merman came in to replace Wilkinson and passed eight yards to Larry Highbaugh.

The first quarter ended in favor of the but Ot- tawa got two points -on the first play of the second quarter when Garry Lefebvre dropped a snap in the end couldn't get his punt away and was tackled behind the goal line. The score stayed that way until .Gerry Organ kicked a 46- yard field goal with four sec- onds left on the clock. The kick erased the Grey Cup record of 38 yards set by Bob Dean of Edmonton against Montreal in 1954. And the Western Football Conference champions never recovered. On the drizzly afternoon with the temperature holding at 38 they contipually coughed up the times they losing three.
