It was Lancaster's first triumph in the national balloting although he had been named winner of the Jeff Nicfclin Tro- phy as the WFC's outstanding player on four 1968, 1969 and 1870. Harris is the first in Die 18- year history of the awards to take the outstanding lineman award three times, winning pre- viously in 1965 and 1966. Young, in his fourth year witli the Lions, was (he WFC repre- sentative in ihs top Canadian category last year but lost in the final to four-time winner Kuss Jackson, Ottawa Rough Riders' quarterback.

Greg Landry of Detroit Lions outpitched an NFL super passer for the second time in five days and Tom Landry of Dallas Cow- boys outfoxed Green Bay Pack- ers for the first time in Thurs- day's holiday attractions. Detroit's Landry fired three touchdown passes as the Lions roared from behind to topple Daryle Lamonica and Oakland Raiders 28-14. Dallas Coach Landry, no rela- tion to the Lions' second-year quarterback, called offensive signals from the sideline as his Cowboys finally overcame a longstanding Green Bay hex and bounced the Packers 16-3. The victories enhanced the Lions' and Cowboys' playoff hopes while endangering Oak- land's perch atop the American Football Conference's Western Division and dropping the fad- ing Packers below the .500 mark. Kansas City's defending Super Bowl champions, now just one game off Oakland's pace in the AFC West, can tie for the lead with a victory over visiting San Diego Sunday. Detroit is virtually out of reach of first-place Minnesota in the National Conference's Cen- tral Division. But the Lions' 7-4 record keeps them in contention for the playoff spot which goes to the second place 'club with the best wan-lost mark in the NFC. Dallas, also 7-4, could contest Detroit for that post-season berth if the Cowboys are unable to overtake first-place St. Louis, 7-2-1, in the NFC Eastern Divi- sion race, Minnesota puts a seven-game winning streak on the line at New York-against the always- formidable Jets Sunday while St. Louis, which hasn't allowed a touchdown in four consecutive games, plays Philadelphia at home.

The Lions spotted Lamonica t w o first-quarter touchdown passes to Fred Biletnikoff, then stopped the AFC's leading pas- ser cold while Landry mounted an overwhelming counter-at- tack. He hit Allie Taylor with a 12- yard scoring pass and flipped 20 yards to Charlie Sanders, who made a diving catch, for an- other touchdown to knot it at 14-all before the halftime break. Then he tossed a six-yard pass to Sanders, who made an- other acrobatic grab, in the final quarter before sending Mel Farr li yards on the ground for the wrap-up score. Labor Club impressive In the only game staged in the City Recreation Hockey League last night a short- handed Labor Club bounced the league leading M K Generals with an impressive 7-3 victory. Grant Harrington and Lome Gray banged in two goals in leading the Club to their vic- tory while singletons came off the sticks of Don Bruehet, Stan Maxwell and Al Rowntree. For the Generals Norm Brayse, Lloyd Yamagishi and Tex Wiebe managed a goal each m a losing cause. The clubs were tied 2-2 after the first period, but the Labor Club went ahead 5-3 after the second. dates from each "of the nine CFL cities. An earlier tabula- tion narrowed the candidates down to one in each of the three categories from the two confer- ences. Lancaster, who won through the selection defeated ace receiver and kicker Tommy Joe Coffey of Hamilton Tiger- Cats, the CFL's all-time scoring leader with 847 points. Coffey has reached the final ballot on two other occasions without whining. He represented the West in 1962, losing to George Dixon of Montreal, and in 1967 trailed Peter Liske, Cal- gary quarterback, in the final ballot. Coffey, who Has also caught more passes than anyone in CFL history and is just a few yards shy of becoming the car- eer leader in pass yardage, said the tension of the past three days has been like nothing he's experienced. TOUGH ON TOMMY JOE "My hands were just like he said, extending trem- bling hands straight in front of him. "Waiting all that tune and knowing I had lost." How did he know? "You've got to be kidding. A pass receiver beat out a quart- erback? Not a chance." Harris topped defensive tac- kle Angelo Mosca of Hamilton, whose only previous nomination was a first-ballot selection in 1963. Young topped Montreal's out- standing defensive halfback, Al Fhaneuf, 1969's rookie of the year in the east. Lancaster, WFC passing leader this year with 175 com- pletions of 330 attempts for yards, said later he didn't really expect to win in view of Cof- fey's all-round talent. Coffey, whose pass-catching and place-kicking talents car- ried him to the EFC scoring title this year witW 113 points, expressed disappointment i n losing to Lancaster but said Ihere was some solace in that "it's always nice to lose to somebody else who wears a crewcut." THANKS PAP.KER While receiving his award, Young expressed thanks to three people: his coach, Jackie Parker; team-mate and quart- erback Paul Brothers for throw- ing passes to him; and Jacksor "for retiring so I could win it." Harris felt an added thrill to this year's award in that it was the first time the lineman award has been won three times by the same person. The Southern Alberta "A" Boys Basketball League will open their 1970-71 season with all six teams in action tonight. Meanwhile the University of -Blhbridge Chinooks have a change in their schedule as they ravel to Calgary on November 23 instead of hosting the Dino- saurs in Lethbridge. The Uni- versity of Calgary will come to Lethbridge January 15, 1971 in- stead. In the past years the Ray- mond Comets have dominated the high school basketball scene, but this may not be the case this season. The Comets will be joined once again in the league by the Magrath Zeniths, LCI Rams, Catholic Central Cougars, Med- cine Hat High School and the Cardston Cougars who all are out to win tneir share of games. Tonight Medicine Hat travels .0 Cardston, Magrath visits the Rams while Catholic Cen- tal will host the defending champion Comets. All "A" games are set for an 8 p.m. start with a "B" game preceding at Taking a trip back into the past, the Comets have an en- viable record to say the least. In the past nine years they have Alberta "A" champion- ship on five occasions picking up their titles in 1962, 64, 67, 68, and last year. Besides being defending champions they have already chacked up one pre-season tour- nament. Last weekend the Com- ets won the Magrath Pre sea- son tournament which included other league members such as !te Cardston Cougars, Rams and Zeniths. Coach Gibb feels the league will be tougher this year as he has only two players back from last years list in Harry Wil- liams and Lloyd Fairbanks. On the other hand Zenith coach Hay Stephenson feels his club will be tough contenders this year having six returnees. Meanwhile Cardston coach Blame Bunnage will have three back from last season. The Cougars, after dropping a de- cisive setback to the host Zen- iths in the Magrath tourney fin- ished third behind the Zeniths and the Comets as they shaded the LCI Rams 40-38 in their final. Rams under coach Hugh Tamblyn, came home from Magrath empty handed, but were close. After a romping over lire Milk River Comets and losing two tough ones, 46-41 against Raymond and their loss to the Cougars hey can be considered as con- enders once the league gets under way.
