Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October E LETHBRIDGE MARK BALDRY, (13) SCORES ONE OF HIS FOUR TOUCHDOWNS. Cougars rally to take over top spot The Catholic Central Cougars journeyed to Medicine Hat Friday night and came away with a narrow 10-9 verdict over the east divi- sion Crescent Heights team Playing with nearly two in- ches of snow on the field, the Cougars had to come from behind to win, enabling them to take over first place in the west division of the Southern Alberta High School Football League Going into the game the Cougars were tied with the Winston Churchill Bulldogs in top spot. The win moved the Cougars into sole possession of first spot pending the out- come of tonight's contest at Henderson Stadium between the Bulldogs and Medicine Hat High. George Seiller gave the Cougars the lead in the second quarter when his field goal moved the Lethbridge team into a 3-0 lead Late in the second quarter Tom Stevenson tossed a 25 yard touchdown pass to Barry Ford, and then Stevenson scampered in for a two point convert, sending the Crescent Heights squad to the dressing room with an 8-3 lead The teams battled through a scoreless third period Crescent Heights looked like they had clinched the vic- tory when they held the Cougars on a third and go late in the final stanza. Two plays later the Cres- cent Heights luck took a turn for the worse when they fumbled in their own end zone and the Cougar's Roman Ksiazek jumped on the lose ball for the go ahead touchdown Seiller booted the convert ANNOUNCES A NEW LICENSEE LOCATION AT 1102-3rd Ave. S.

Baldry was the whole story as far as the LCI Rams were concerned as he led the local club to a 35-14 win over McCoy in a Southern Alberta High School interlocking football game. Despite the cold and steady snow fall the 175 pound Ram fullback scored four touchdowns, compiled a total of 262 yards rushing, completed the only Ram pass, scored two, two-point converts, punted for a 44-yard average and was in on a number of tackles on defence. Baldry had touchdown runs of five, eight, 14 and 87 yards. The win was the second in a row for the Rams after dropping their first two contests this season LCI scored the first time they had the ball, moving it from their own 38 yard line for a major in nine plays, culminated by Baldry's five yard charge through the mid- dle of the Colt line. Baldry then zipped around right end for a two point convert and the Rams led 8-0. A Colt snap on a punt went sailing over the kicker's head and enabled the Rams to take over first and 10 on the Colt 27 Four plays later Harvey Labuhn charged through the centre of the McCoy line for a six yard touchdown run. The convert attempt failed as Labuhn was dropped a few feet short of the goal line and the Rams closed the first quarter with a 14-0 lead Baldry went to work again for the Rams in the second quarter, scoring on a six yard run and increasing the LCI lead to 20-0 Labuhn once again came up short on his convert try. The McCoy Colts finally hit the Scoreboard when half back Bruce McPhail returned a Baldry punt 65 yards for a touchdown. Drew Tumbach made it into the end zone for a two pointer and the Ram lead was cut to 20-8 And that's how the half ended With second down and five yards to go on the third series of plays in the second half Mark Baldry swept through the uprights and the Cougars led 10-8 With 1 46 remaining in the game Crescent Heights had the perfect opportunity to win it when Stevenson attempted a 27 yard field goal The attempt went wide, bouncing harmlessly through the end zone for a single point The Cougars now await the outcome of the game between the Bulldogs and Medicine Hat High to see if they will have to share top spot for another week or if they will be in first place alone around left end and rambled 87 yards for a touchdown The convert attempt failed, but the Rams' lead was widened to 28-6. Sid Collier, the big 186 pound lineman, accounted for the LCI's next point when his field goal attempt went wide but travelled through the end zone for a single point It was now 27-8 Collier was responsible for setting up Baldry's final touchdown when he recovered a Colt fumble on the McCoy 25 yard line. Four plays later Baldry blasted across from the 14 He then went in for two more points on the convert attempt to move the Rams into a 35-8 lead and close out the third quarter. The Colt defence held the Rams off the scoresheet in the final quarter, in what was by far their best period of play Colt quarterback Drew Tumbach broke through on a first down play from the Ram 35 for a major on a play set up by a series of fumbles Tumbach had fumbled and Collier pounced on the lose ball, but two plays later the Rams coughed up the ball and Ken Arnott got it back for the Colts. Tumbach's major closed out the scoring at 35-14 as the Colt convert attempt was no good. Tim Cooper was the leading ground gainer for the Colts with 31 yards Tumbach had 25 The entire Colt offence only amounted to 92 yards against the stout Ram defensive unit The Rams were good on only one pass for 16 yards but their impressive ground game rolled up 362 yards for a total of 378 yards for their evening's work. THE FIFTH QUARTER Harvey Labuhn was the Rams' second leading rusher with 55 yards Kevin Malmberg lead a well balanced Ram defence with seven tackles Sam the Ram was the only warm person among the sparse crowd at the game announcer Gordon Thomas added to the cool evening's entertain- ment with his witty remarks a sample of which concerned the referee's "snowshoeing out a penalty" Jack Gleason was the head referee Brian Schmunk was a defensive stalwart for the Colts Campbell just woundir t give up By THE CANADIAN PRESS Defensive back George Campbell, who didn't "catch on" with Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 1973, is one of the top rookies this season for the Eastern Football Conference team. Campbell, 24, has held down a cornerback the right the start of the season. In fact, he's the only American rookie to stick with the team since the first day of training camp "Campbell is a real said Hamilton coach Jerry Williams "He gives good single coverage, is a sound defender and a good tackier." And he also returns kickoffs and punts. So both the defen- sive and offensive units of the Ottawa Rough Riders will have to keep a close watch on him Sunday when they meet the Ticats in Hamilton The game will be televised on the CTV eastern network, starting at noon In a Canadian Football League interlocking game this afternoon at Toronto, Ed- monton Eskimos meet the Argonauts. The game starts at 2 p.m and will be shown on the CBC national network. Montreal Alouettes lead the EFC with 14 points, two more than Hamilton, and four ahead of Ottawa. Toronto is last with eight points.

He was cut by the Falcons without seeing action in exhibition games. "I'd watched some Cana- dian football on television and remembered Hamilton had written me a letter in my senior year at Iowa." he said Friday. "I had my agent at the time contact the Tiger- Cats they invited me up for a five-day trial but I didn't catch on "However, they said I would have a good chance in 1974 so I signed a Campbell has returned 13 kickoffs this season, most in the EFC, for 320 or 24 6 yards a cam He's fourth best in yards gained, 17 behind leader Dave Raimey of Toron- to.
