Bud Connolly, marking 224 Bombers Blank Argos Thump Ti-Cats By THE CANADIAN PRESS Tom Wilkinson steered To. ronto Argonauts into calm wa- ters Sunday before injuries forced him to hand the boat- men's helm to Don Jonas en route to a 33-14 Ai-go victory over Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Eastern Fotball Conference play. Wilkinson did a superb job ex- ploiting the Heat defences in the opening quarter and until he injured an ankle midway into the second period as the Argos looked a vastly superior club REPEAT CHAMPS Cliff Stroh, left and Lei Colwill won their second straight Last Chance golf tournament over the weekend at Henderson Lake.

Jonas came on with the score 14-0 and built that lead to 26-0 before the Ticats finally got on the Scoreboard as frus- trated fans took every opportu- nity to jeer the officials whom they blamed for Hamilton's ina- bility to cope with' an aroused 'Argonaut club. Hamilton coach Joe Restic saw things differently, though, noting that "mistakes, lost field position early in the game, and having to use Gabler as early as we did" were contributing factors in the loss. The victory moved Toronto into a second place, tie in the EFC standings with Hamilton, two points behind Montreal Al- ouettes and four points up on Ottawa Rough Riders. The Als were hammered 29-10 by Sas- katchewan Roughriders Sunday and Ottawa was blanked 15-0 by Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Lansdowne Field's mud bowl Saturday. Quarterback Wally Gabler whom the Tiger-Cats picked up last week from Winnipeg in -an effort to bolster the loss of Joe Zuger. to injuries, was forced into the game when starting pivot John Eckman was hit by injuries late in the first quarter. His first play from scrim- mage, a pass, at Toronto's nine-yard line by Dick Thornton and returned 38 yards. Restic said he had not in- tended using Gabler as soon or as often, but circumstances dic- tated the ex-Argo carry the bur- den of Hamilton's intricate off- ence that has every backfielder in motion before the ball is snapped. Running back Bill Symons's 98-yard romp along the sidelines early in the third quarter, leav- ing Hamilton speedsters Paul Johnson and Mack Lamb falling behind, seemed to put a damper on any spark the Ticats had until that time. That made the score 20-0 and Tom Bland completed a 17-yard scoring play on a pass from Jonas before the period ended, making Hamilton's two fourth- quarter scores meaningless. 65-YARD PUNT Wilkinson and Jim Henderson, the latter on a 68-yard pass- and-run play with Jonas sand- wiched between the two Hamil- ton scores, were the other To- ronto scorers. Jonas converted two and kicked two field goals while Dave Mann punted 65 yards for a single. Hamilton touchdowns were scored by Ed Buchanan and Dave Fleming. Both were con- verted by Tommy Joe Coffey. At Ottawa, it was a mudders day and the Blue Bombers, whose only previous win this year was over Toronto, had the register their second win. Big Bob (Hoss) Houmard lugged the ball 133 yard on 22 carries and runs for the two Winnipeb touchdowns culminat- ing a series of Ottawa penalties that hemmed the Rough Riders in their own end of the field on both scoring efforts. Gene Lakusiak converted one and Ed Ulmer kicked two sin- gles to complete the game scor- ing in front of rain- drenched fans, smallest crowd of the season to see Ottawa play at home. points on three head of bare- back stock, captured the top honors in that event the Lethbridge Finals. Second spot went to Ronnie Bird, Browning, with 210 pouits, and third was taken by Pete Bruised Head of Cardston. Connolly received the Doug's Music and Sport trophy by win- ning the bareback competition, Jim Gladstone was a double winner Sunday as he won the calf roping and steer wrestling trophies donated by Valley Feeders Ltd. and Canada Pack- ers Ltd. respectively. Gladstone threw his three steers in a total time of 25.2 seconds, beating out Jerry Hamel of Duton, Montana who took second spot with a time of 40.6. It took Gladstone 38.2 sec- onds to wrap three calves, giv- ing him first place ahead of Cutbank's Arnie Johnson. John- son took 40.6 seconds to com- plete his task, 7.2 seconds fast- er than third place finisher, Bob Lytle, Santa Rita, Mon- tana. Darrel Currie was presented with the El Rancho Motor Hotel trophy, emblematic of the boys' steer riding champion- ship. Caen Ely, Cardston, toured the barrels in the fastest tune over the three nights and won the Senior girls' barrel race. Susan Connolly was the Junior girls' champion. Ely took home the Dallas, Hotel trophy while HaiCo Mfg Ltd. presented the trophy to the junior girls' winner. The Canadian Dressed Meats trophy was presented to Pete Bruised Head, Cardston, winner of the saddle bronc riding. He garnered 229 points on three horses and beat out Bud Con- nolly with 219 points. Sidney Starlight of Sarcee placed third. Eugene and Teak Racine, 'ather and son team, were awarded the Bcny Chevrolet Oldsmobile and The Lethbridge Herald trophies ic the team roping event.

He took care of that b y win- ning the Azalea open tournament Sunday when third-round leader Bobby Mitch- ell faltered on the last three holes. "They were calling me an un- known, but I'm not an unknown said the 26-year-old from San Diego, Calif. He put to- gether rounds of 66, 68, 68 and 67 for under par. Mitchell, 27, of Danville, Va., had a four-stroke lead going into the final round. Sanudo nar- rowed the gap until Mitchell ea- gled the par-five 35 to hold a two-stroke edge. But Mitchell three-putted the nest three holes to finish with a 72 for 270. He missed a five-foot putt on the 18th that would have sent the tournament into a playoff. It was Sanudo's first victory in 20 months on the tour and earned him Mitchell re- ceived CASH FOIl CANADIANS Four of five Canadians en- tered in the field were among the money winners. Veteran Al Balding of Toronto carded a 66 Sunday and a share of sixth place at 274 with Howell Fraser, worth Roughriders Assured Of Playoff Berth Eskimos Move Ahead Of Lions By THE CANADIAN PRESS Saskatchewan. Roughriders, with four games left in regular season play in the Western Football Conference> could have used their standings lead as an excuse for a rest during ,t he weekend. Edmonton Eskimos, trailing in third place, were ex- pected to pull out all the stops in another game. Saskatchewan didn't and Ed- m o n t o n did: Saskatchewan dancing a 29-10 jig all over visit- ing Montreal Alouettes Sunday and Edmonton humbling the crippled British Columbia Lions 32-20 at Vancouver Saturday. The Roughriders' victory gives them an eight-point lead on first place in the WFC with 20 points and makes them the first team in the Canadian Foot- ball League to be guaranteed a playoff berth. Edmonton's win moved them into a share of second place with Calgary Stampeders, both with 12 points, while B.C. trails with 10 points and Winnipeg Blue Bombers bring up the rear with foui1. Edmonton also has four games left to play in the regu- lar season while the other WFC teams each have five. The next game in the West has Montreal at Calgary Wednesday. Af Regina Sunday, Henry Dorsch and Steve Molnar con- nected for the Roughriders touchdowns on short plunges, Ted Duschinski scored on a 42- yard pass interception and Jack Abendschan kicked three field goals and two converts.

A capacity crowd of watched as Ron Lancaster con- nected with 12 of 24 pass at- tempts for 208 yards in the air and pushed his squad for 183 yards on the ground. Montreal, under the guidance of Sonny Wade and his fourth- quarter relief Tony Passander, gained 349 yards in the air and only 59 on the ground. Lancaster's passes were more telling, however, he only had .wo intercepted compared with Wado's three and Passander's one. At Vancouver, fans saw lalfback Jim Thomas score two xmchriowns to lead the explo- sive Edmonton offence which seemed to move the ball almost at will against the injury-weak- ened Lions.
