"I can't stand up high and fight said ilggins, converted this year by Calgary Stampeders from a defensive tadcls. "Bectuss of my else, I can't owtmuscte my opponent. I have to get low and block him around the waist." He plans this treatment for Ted Collins of Montreal, a 263- TORONTO (CP) Moses Denson, Montreal Alouettes' wwerful running back, wasn't sappy with his first three Cana- dian Football League games. Denson, an Eastern Football Sonferenca all-star in this his rookie year, was allowed only "about two carries a game for the first three games." iiifniir "I wasn't happy about it, but the team was winning so what can you Denson said Thursday, after the Alouettes finished a rugged workout at suburban Etobkoke Centennial Stadium. It's a cinch Denson won't suf- fer from an inferiority complex because he is overlooked Satur- vni fim in wipii hum 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 Roughriders 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 1988 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 size. Pat Sullivan 111 MfifB (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 tire 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 tliis 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 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. TITUS REMATCH!

"No it wouldn't surprise me at Denson said. "But it doesn't bother me either." SAM EXPLAINS Head coach Sam Etcbsverry sai4 Benson's upswing es after the Maryland State drop- out was used sparingly in the early part of the season "play- ing some slot and some in the backfield and alter he carried the ball eight times in our first three games." "We finally placed him back in Bis backfield and this has fl 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 t four-year stint in the Unite< States Marina Corps, perked right up at the opportunity. He carried the ball 116 times to-the regular season for 82 yards, fourth-best in the EFC had a 7.1-yard average pe carry, but scored only om touchdown along the ground. He also caught 25 passes for 32 yards and another six-pointer. He is described by Etcheverry as "one hell of a am' 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 fullback, he always had fallen into the rough category of a halfback. "But never on h< said, "Always preferred the off ence." Asked how He fared agains the Stampeders in the Als' 11-4 defeat in Calgary Oct. 7, Benson said: "Pretty fair, considering I only carried the ball once in the first half. I finished up with 106 yards on she csnies and I hope I'll have more than that on Sat- urday." Benson scored Montreal's lone touchdown in the second game of the EPC final at Ham- ilton last Saturday as the Als advanced to the Grey Cup with an 114 win on the day and a 43- 26 edge in the two-game total- point series.- Asked about Demon'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 for his second-effort moves fo added that in- vite particularly-hard shots by opposing defenders. "Hiat's not Denson said o f Etcheverry's description It's just my of running I guess." Denson said the major differ- ences he found between the Ca- nadian and U.S. games were the wider field and the fact that 'your backs ate allowed M mo- tion. pound tackle and IJgglm' slve opposition whten the Stasn- eders and Alouettes clash in he Canadian Football League's championship game. Liggins, at Z20 pounds, will give away 45 pounds to Collins, ormerly of Ottawa Rough Ri- ders and Winnipeg Blue Bomb- But the It-year-old Calgary veteran figures he'll be "a litUe quicker" and outfinesse the slower Collins in the Grjy Cup battle. LIKES NEW JOB Belasug after Calgary's 80- 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 sticking me, especially Ed Me- Quarters of Saskatchewan." Liggins, who missed most of the season with a groin injury held Ms own against'Me Quarters, Canada's lineman o ths year in 1967, during th Western Football Confereno playoff final. Calgary won the best-of-ftree series 2-1 to advance to their second Grey Cup in three years against the Eastern Conference champions. If one listens to team-mat and centre Basil Bark, Liggins did a terrific job against Me Quarters. "He did the best job I've eve seen on McQuarters. It' pretty nard to outmuscle Mm (McQuarters) but Granny al most held htm to a standstill." WAS BIG CHANGE On adjusting to offence, Ug gins said: "It was a pretty big cfrang for me... it helped my injur) Playing defence I had to exer myself more, but on offence al I have to do is get there an keep the opponents away from our men." He said he played "a little of ence about four or five years ago" while attending Universit of Oklahoma. "Offence takes a lot of ability and a little more determination All a defensive player has to c is wind up and run over the gu in front of him. "An offensive player has t stand there. He doesn't kmn which way the guy is go'Jig I go he has to be able to move 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 Isead 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 196D, he immediately got our at- tention, I honestly believe ev- erybody hated him at the start he was a different type of coach than Jerry Williams he wasn't partial to anyone and got on you no matter Who you were." Duncan, also In the Grey Cup In 1966 arid 1967 as an assistant to Saskatchewan coach Eagle Keys, scheduled a final workout for Hie Stampeders this mom- ing. It probably will follow the same pattern as Thursday's ses- sion, which consisted of offen- sive plays normally performed by the Alouettes.
