Have it replaced now by experts at Lethbridge Sash Door! FREE PICK-UP AND DELIVERY OF YOUR CARI LETHBRIDGE SHandDpOR Corner 5th Ave., 4th St. S. Phone 327-1581 TORONTO (CP) Offensive guard Granville Liggins of Cal- gary Stampeders, putting liis faith in speed and agility, plans "an interesting day" for any- body bigger and heavier oppos- ite him in the Grey Cup game Saturday. "I can't stand up high and fight said Liggins, converted this year by Calgary Stampeders from a defensive tackle. "Because of my elze, I can't outmuscle my opponent. I have to get low and block him around the waist." He plans this treatment for Ted Collins of Montreal, a 265- Densoii a key figure in Alouettes' plans TORONTO (CP) Moses Den son, Montreal Alouettes' powerful running back, wasn't happy with his first three Cana- dian Football League games. Denson, an Eastern Football Conference all-star in this his rookie year, was allowed only "about two carries a game for the first three games." "I wasn't happy about it, bu fhe team was winning so wha can you Denson Thursday, after the Alouette finished a rugged 90-minute workout at suburban Etobicoki Centennial Stadium. It's a cinch Denson won't suf fer from an inferiority pompi because he is overlooked Satur Don Pilling 'J'HERE is no need, of course, to beat around the bush. Minus blaring trumpets and beating drums, the big, brash predicition from this corner is that Cal- gary Stampeders will win the Grey Cup for the first time in 22 long, frustrating years Saturday in Toronto. I think they'll win simply because I think they are a better football team than the Montreal Alou- ettes, and that they'll prove it to one and all in the Big Ballyhoo considered by most people, I suppose, the premier sporting spectacle in our land. The Stampeders made a believer out of me in upsetting Saskatchewan Rpughriders in an almost un- believable Western final a rough, tough Saskatch- ewan team that didn't lose a game all season to an opponent in the Eastern Conference. Think what you will, but for my money, the Alouettes are not on a par with the Roughriders, labelled by most of the alleged experts the best-balanced team in the CFL. The Stampeder defence, of course, was superb in leading the way to victory over Saskatchewan. They came up big, like a giant. In fact, they gave up only one touchdown in three games, two fumbles being re- sponsible for the two other Rider majors, and there's no reason to believe that they'll suddenly become shrinking violets in Saturday's one-shot deal for.all the marbles. Many observers feel the Cowboys do not possess enough firepower to conquer the Alouettes, but their offence is not such a hit-and-miss outfit as many peo- ple seem to think. They can score, They had to score to beat Saskatchewan and, unlike the 1968 final against Ottawa when their running attack was really nothing more than jogging onto the field for the kickoff, Jim Duncan has given them the balance required to make the grade. No longer do they live by the pass, and the pass alone. It won't be easy. Grey Cup victories are usually hard to come by. Montreal must be respected. From last place to a berth in the final in one year is quite an accomplishment, but the long Calgary drought is about to end. The score? Try Calgary 24 and Montreal 10 on for Pat Sullivan (CALGARY STAMPEDERS will win the Grey Cup against Montreal Alouettes Saturday afternoon in Toronto. This is not a statement filled with sentiment. It is based on .good sound reasoning. The Stampeders, in winning the West, knocked off the team that proved to be the best in Canada over the 16-game schedule, Saskatchewan Roughriders were 14-2 during the year but the Stamps dropped them in the three-game western final and did so by stopping them twice in Regina. Calgary won the West with what I would say was the best balanced defence in the nation. There are bound to be plenty of arguments to the contrary, but after the way the defence played against Saskatche- wan, they convinced me that they deserve to be la- belled the finest in.the country. The Calgary defensive dozen is that much better than Montreal's that I feel the Stampeders will have the ball more often offensively than the Alouettes, thus increasing their scoring chances. It stands to reason that if Wayne Harris and his mates can keep Montreal bottled up, the Stamps will enjoy good field position a good portion of the game and, although the Stampeders don't have the best of- fence in Canada, they still rank rather high. Stampeders displayed more guts in winning the West this year than any Calgary club I have ever seen. Coach Jim Duncan says they are putting it all together, and I can't think of a better time to do it. The way I see the outcome of Saturday's game is Calgary by a converted touchdown. Let's say 24-17 for good measure. WRESTLING EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM MONDAY, NOV. 30 8.30 p.m. N.A. TITLE REMATCH1 URSUS TO REFEREII ABDiniAH THE BUTCHER SWEET DADDY S1KI BOB SWEETAN vi Gil HAYES DUPRE and PACCHIANO vi PELLER and CARUSO BUDDY AUSTIN VI BOBB PIRIE plus 2 More Big Bouts Admission Box Office opens 7 p.m. Watch STAMPEDE WRESTLING on CJLH-TVI day when the AIs, representing the East, meet Calgary Stam- peders in the annual Grey Clip contest. And off his performance o late, Denson may come in for some special attention from the Western .Conference Stamped ers. "No it wouldn't surprise me at Denson said. "But it doesn't bother me either." SAM EXPLAINS Head coach Sam Etcheverry said Denson's upswing came after the Maryland State drop- out was used sparingly in the early part of the season "play ing some slot and some in thf backfield and after he oarriec the ball eight times in our first three games." "We finally placed him back in the backfield and this has fi nally given Moses an opportu nity to show what he can Etcheverry said. And Denson, who never played high school football bu learned the game while doing a four-year stint in the Unite< States Marine Corps, perked right up at the opportunity. He carried the ball 116 tunes in the regular season for 82 yards, fourth-best in the EFC had a 7.1-yard average pe carry, but scored only one touchdown along fhe ground. Hi also caught 25 passes for 327 yards and another six-pointer. He is described by Etcheverrs as "one hell of a and a fine athlete. WENT TO SCHOOL After his discharge from the marines, Denson a 11 e n d e Maryland State for three years He said that with the exception of his first season with the serv- ice team, when he had been a fullback, he always had fallen into the rough category of a halfback. 'But never on he said. "Always preferred the off- ence." Asked how he fared against the Stampeders in the Als' 11-4 defeat in Calgary Oct. 7, Denson said: 'Pretty fair, considering I only carried the ball once in the first half. I finished up with 106 yards on she carries and I hope I'll have more than that on Sat- urday." Denson scored Montreal's lone touchdown in the second game of the EFC final at Ham- ilton last Saturday as the Als advanced to the Grey Cup with an 11-4 win on the day and a 43- 26 edge in the two-game total- Mint series. Asked about Denson's per- formance then, when he played with a sore back, Etcheverrj' described Moses as a "super- man." This assessment brings roars of laughter from Denson, noted "or his second-effort moves fo added tnat in- vite particularly-hard shots by opposing defenders. "That's not Denson said o f Etcheverry's description. 'It's just my style of running I guess." Denson said the major differ- ences he found between the Ca- nadian and U.S. games were the rider field and the fact that 'your backs are allowed in mo- ion. pound tackle and Liggins' itefen- sive opposition when the Stam- peders and Alouettes clash in ;he Canadian Football League's championship game. Liggins, at Z20 pounds, will give away 45 pound? to Collins, formerly of Ottawa Rough Ri- ders and Winnipeg Blue Bomb- ers. But the 24-year-old Calgary veteran figures he'll be "a little quicker" and outfinesse the slowflr Collins in the Grey Cup battle. LIKES NEW JOB Relaxing after Calgary's minute workout Thursday, con- sidered a light session by most observers, Liggins said! he pre- fers his new position after two seasons as a defensive player. Running after those half- backs used to strain me don't get a chance to stick any- body like I used to. Now they're sticldng me, especially Ed Mc- Quarters of Saskatchewan." Liggins, who missed most a the season with a groin injury held his own against Mc- Quarters, Canada's lineman a tha year in 1967, during the Western Football Conference playoff final. Calgary won the best-of-three series 2-1 to advance to their second Grey Cup in three years against the Eastern Conference champions. If one listens to team-mate and centre Basil Bark, Liggins did a terrific job against Mc- Quarters. "He did the best job I've ever seen on McQuarters. It's pretty nard to outmuscle him (McQuarters) but Granny al most held htm to a standstill." WAS BIG CHANGE On adjusting to offence, Lig gins said: "It was a pretty big change for me it helped my injury Playing defence I had to exer myself more, but on offence al I have to do is get there am keep the opponents away from our men." He said he played "a little off- ence about four or five years ago" while attending University of Oklahoma. "Offence takes a lot of ability and a little more determination. All a defensive player has to do is wind up and run over the guy in front of him. "An offensive player has to stand there. He doesn't know which way the guy is goijig to go he has to be able to ntove from side to side or far out to stay in front of this guy him between you and the quarterback." Liggins also had praise for head coach Jim Duncan who "has made the team just a little better offensively and defen- sively" than the 1968 Grey Cup representative. "When Jim became coach in 1969, he immediately got our at- tention. I honestly believe ev- erybody hated him at the star! he was a different type of coach than Jerry Williams w wasn't partial to anyone and ;ot on you no matter Who you were." Duncan, also to the Grey Cup n 1966 arid 1967 as an assistant o Saskatchewan coach Eagle leys, scheduled1 a final workout or the Stampeders this morn- ing. It probably will follow the same pattern as Thursday's ses- sion, which consisted of offen- sive plays normally performed by the Alouettes. More Sport on page 16 71 CORTINA gives
