Drop Cougars 14-12 in high school tussle Hams horn way into share By LI.OYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer The Lcthbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams picked up their biggest victory in the 1972 Southern Alberta High School Football League season, defeat- ing the Catholic Central Coug- ars 14-12 Friday night. The win pushed the Rams into a first place tie with the defending champion Cougars who suffered their first loss In five starts. Both clubs sport 4-1 records in the west division of the six- leam SAHSFL and will now bailie it out to the end for the league pennant. Should both clubs win their final two games of the season and finish with identical rec- ords, the league officials will use the points for-and-against system to determine which team will meet the east divi- sion champions in the SAHSFL championship final. However, both dubs will still share the west envision pennant title for the 1972 season. The points for-and-against uill be totalled from their two encounters this season and at present, the Rams have the edge by a single point. In their first meeting of the season, the Cougars dropped Ihe Hams 4-3, but last night the Rams dumped the Cougars by two points. In last night's encounter, iiRoughriders serious, they need Lancaster IT NEVER GOT THERE This was one forward pass lhat didn't reach its destination in High School Football League action Friday as 1he ICI Rams upended Catholic Central Cougars 14-12. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Ron Lancaster, who couldn't even lift five pounds Friday, may be called on to lift Sas- katchewan Rouglrriders out of a tight spot in the Western Foot- bail Conference this weekend. It all depends on the oulcome of a game today between Cal- gary Stampeders and Hamilton T1 g e r-C a t s Saskatchewan coach Dave Skrieo says that if Calgary wins, he may have to I use Lancaster Sunday despite the fact the veteran quarter- back is still suffering from ribs cracked in a game two weeks ago. If Calgary beats Hamilton, they'll be just two points behind the' Roughriders in the stand- ings. If they lose, however, Bubba Wyche is expected to play instead of Lancaster Sun- day when British Columbia Lions come calling in Regina.

Calgary coach Jim Duncan, looking to today's game against tbe Ticats, said "definitely it's crucial." But he adds: "So is the next one and tbe next after that and. For the Argos, the most im- portant question is: Can they stop an improved Montreal team when they meet the Alouettes Sunday in Toronto, halting their slide to playoff eli- mination in the Eastern Confer- ence? Argo coach Leo Cahill, aware that the Als will be no push- overs, is counting on quarter- back Joe Thcismann to spark the Argos. "Joe won't he at his peak against Montreal by any Cahill said of Thcis- mann who broke his ankle in the first season game against Montreal and re-injured it last Saturday night in a game with Edmonton Eskimos. "We just have to hope he's enough improved to get us through and that he can last all the way." The CaSgary-Hatnilton and Toronto-Montreal games are two of three being played in lite East this Thanksgiving week- end. The Stampeders play again Monday in Otlawa against the Rough Riders who arc tied for first place in the with Winnipeg Blue Bombers visiting Edmonton Eskimos Monday. The Sunday game, which starts at neon MDT, is on the CTV western network, while the Monday game, whicr starts at noon MDT, is not being televised. If Calgary defeats Hamilton, the Stampeders will have 10 points to the Roughriders' 12. Skrien doesn't want to take the chance that B.C., which upset Winnipeg 26-24 Tuesday night, might do the same to Sas- kalchewan. THINKS THERE'S CHANCE Coach Eagle Keys of B.C. feels his team, which now has three wins and eight defeats, still has a playoff chance. "We knew all along we had the makings of a good he said, commenting on the vic- tory over Winnipeg, WEC lead- ers with an 8-3 record. "But it wasn't mature enough earlier in the season to overcome some of the other clubs." The Eskimos are In a pre- carious second place with 14 some hysterical spectators' didn't put the Henderson ball park bleachers to much use as they stood up to cheer for their respective teams throughout the ball game. The key to the Rams' bard- fought victory lay in their de- fensive unit. Rams' coach, Jim Wliitelaw was more than pleased witli his defensive unit's perfor- mance and couldn't really find the right words to describe their fine efforts. "I wasn't at all pleased with the offensive unit and that includes both the linemen and backlielders last night, but the defensive squad played ex- cellent ball and should be com- he said. On the first play of the fins' quarter, the Cougars reached trie Rams' one-yard line when halfback John Kostiuk com- pleted a 29-yard pass to Guy Pomahac. With a first and goal-to-go situation, the Cougars quarter- back, Kim Wilson tried to go up the middle but was forced back by a host of players. Wilson scooted around the left end across the goal line, but the of- Brian Clampitf, Ken Nakama and Hob .Myers scored majors for the Bulldogs while Cyril Patson chipped in with two converts and a field goal. Bulldogs opened the scoring with a Clampitt touchdown on the first series of plays. The convert was good and follow- ing a Patson field goal the loc- als led 10-0. Mohawks took Ihe lead for the first and only time, in the. second quarter with two quick touchdowns, On the second last play of the half Bulldogs recovered a Med- icine Hat fumble and turned il into a touchdown with four seconds left on tbe clock.

Wilson called two more plays up the middle, but tbe Rams put a stone wall to hold the up points, two behind Winnipeg. Edmonton coach Ray Jaucb hopes a beefed-up defence will give the Eskimos a more solid footing in the standings. He's worried about Winnipeg's Mack Herron, a hard-running half- back who leads the conference in rushing and scoring although he hasn't picked up any points in the last two games. Jauch isn't using injuries as an excuse. "Sure, we've lost fJerrv) East with Hamilton. Griffin and (Ron! Forwick, but that doesn't account for us making individual mistakes This defence used to be one of the best in the league, but this year it hasn't come together. "I'm not naming individuals because, from the rawest rookie to the highest-paid vet- eran, I'm not happy with their performance. We've talked to players about mistakes, told them to do certain tilings, and nothing Jauch has acquired a new Brinklcy from the University of Missouri and St. Louis Cardinals of the National Football says "we'll be bringing in more." Few changes are likely be- fore the Winnipeg encounter. Cougars out. The Cougars had hit Scoreboard first in the end-to- end bail game with Kostiuk grabbing a high snap on an at- tempted field goal and travel- ling 12 yards to the end zone. Bill Dudas' try for the extra point was blocked. DRAW EVEN The Rams evened the score midway through the second quarter when Rams' quarter- back, Gary Mann tossed a 29- yard touchdown pass to Dave Howe Rick Collier's convert attempt was also blocked, leaving the score tied 6-6.
