Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, October 16, 1971 THE LFTHBRIDOE HERALD A iveekend of decision in Western conference Battle for playoff berths in high gear By THE CANADIAN PRESS It's simple, really: "We teal Edmonton Saturday, Hamilton beats Winnipeg Sunday and we're in the playoffs." That's how Jackie Parker, general manager of British Col- umbia Lions, summed up the Western Football Conference playoff picture Friday, as the five WFC teams head into what could be the weekend of deci- sion. Three games are on tap, starting tonight, when Edmon- ton Eskimos meet the Lions on the artificial turf of Empire Stadium in Vancouver. On Sunday, Hamilton of the Eastern Conference, is at Winni- peg and Calgary Stampeders meet Saskatchewan Rough- riders in Regina. Only Calgary and Saskatche- wan are assured of playoff berths. Win-loss combinations involv- ing the three remaining Western teams total at least 20, and Par- ker's solution is certainly the quickest and leas for the Lions- If the Lions topple Edmonto the Esks are out since they tra B.C. and Winnipeg by fi points and would have only tw games left. If Hamilton down Winnipeg Sunday, the Bomber with one game left, could do n better than tie B.C. in the fin 'E ALWAYS APPLAUbS 'IS OWN EFFORTS IF WANT Argos tackle Alouettes Barton to see action TORONTO (CP) Greg Bar- ton will see some action Sunday but it's unlikely Toronto Argo- nauts will resume then- quarter- back platooning system for their home game against Montreal Alouettes. The outcome means little to the Argos, who clinched the Eastern Conference title with a resounding 32-5 victory last Sun- day in Montreal, but the Al- ouettes, beset by dissension, are involved in a battle with Hamil- ton Tiger-Cats for second place. The Ticats, ahead by two points, are in Winnipeg Sunday fora p.m- MST game against the Blue Bombers. It will be carried on the CTV na- tional network. Toronto coach Leo Cahill wants to get Barton back into game condition after a month's absence with a broken finger but he does not plan to alternate him with quarterback Joe Theismann, as was his custom earlier in the season. Both teams have injury prob- lems, with the Als'. troubles ag- gravated by reports of some carping within the organization about coach Sam Etcheverry's insistence on using Canker John Carlos. Montreal dissidents contended that Etcheverry is wasting his the for- mer Olympic sprinter who is in the Als' lineup not because of his experience, but because of his speed. Carlos, meanwhile, com- plained that the quarterbacks were not exploiting his talents. Montreal general manager Red O'Quinn said an investiga- tion would continue to discover who voiced grievances to foot- ball writers after the team's loss last Sunday. "The players all deny putting the rap on said Lethbridge Native Sons JUNIOR "B" HOCKEY TRYOUTS Sun., Oct. 17th a.m. Civic Ice Centre O'Quinn. "We believe it was on of our in fit of remorse over the defeat. Although O'Quinn said Carlo "must learn to keep his lip bu he insisted there woul be no change in the Carlos situ alien unless the coach changed his mind. If the Alouettes can overcom their formidable injury hand cap, Sunday's contest could be thriller, because apart from th fact that second place is in th balance, Ottawa Rough Riders now are posing a threat ti Montreal's playoff hopes. WADE MAY WATCH Quarterback Sonny Wade wi be in uniform, despite a sepa rated shoulder, but he'll likel watch from me bench while Jii Chasey, a rookie from Dart mouth College, attempts to di rect the team on the field. Cornerback Merle Code, who has a pulled hamstring, is an other doubtful starter and run ning back Jim Foley has been hampered at workouts, favoring an injured leg. Etcheverry is expected to use Ed Hayes, formerly of the N: tional Football League Philadel phia Eagles, at Code's position and replace defensive halfback Larry Fairholm with rookie Tony Proudfoot. Fairholm was slowed last Sunday by an ankle injury.

Snyder's change, made on day after Buffalo had bee swamped by Seattle 123-90 in i opening game of the Nation Basketball Association season proved beneficial. McCarthy, in his first gam as coach, guided the Braves t a dramatic 111-109 overtime vi tory over Cleveland Cavaliers Friday night. In other NBA games, Los An geles Lakers walloped Detro Pistons 132-103, Golden Stat Warriors routed Boston Celtic 97-75, Chicago Bulls crushe Baltimore Bullets 106-82, an Seattle SuperSonics overpow ered Portland Trailblazers 11 88.

Buffalo looked almost as ba in tte opening quarter again Cleveland as it did in its on game under Schayes, falling be- hind the Cavaliers by 18 points But the Braves battled back te- naciously and finally tied th score 97-97 late in the fourth quarter. At the end of regula ion time, the teams were dean. McLean was a former coach of the Sugar Kings, leading hem to an Alberta-B.C. junior rown two years ago. It was le first such title won by a cal team since the early 950's. McLean has high hopes for le Elks. They lost out to Red 5cer in the provincial final af- r copping the southern Al- erta crown. The team has a trong holdover list and a num- cr of bright prospects from st year's provincial Bantam champion, Lethbridge McLean will be assisted by ick Milford with Roy Ennis am manager. By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "An undefeated season would t' sweet, but a spot in the championship playoffs would be sweeter yet." R was hard for coach Dean Dahl of the Catholic Central Cougars to choose between the two after his club bombed the Winston Churchill Bulldogs 45-0 in Southern Alberta High School Football League action Friday night. With one league game re- maining for the Cougars, it leaves them a chance fo be the first club in CCHS football his- tory to complete a season un- defeated. Last night, the Cougars roll- ed to their sixth straight vic- tory before a sparse crowd that braved (lie cold and snow at Henderson. The Cougars were never in doubt of losing their first en- counter of the season as they maintained quarter scores of 13-0, 20-0 and 30-0. Tlie Cougars started the ball rolling quickly, scoring touch- downs on then- first two series of plays. Ed KrajewsM drove through the middle from three yards out on the first touchdown while quarterback Fred Hof- farth combined with end Peter Sikora for a 51 yard pass and run play for the other. John Dudas connected on one of the two convert attempts. With five minutes into the second quarter, Hoffartfa called a quick action bootleg play, took off around the left end and reached the Bulldogs' end zone to give the Cougars a 19-0 lead. Dudas made the extra point effort and pushed the score to 20-0. The second half was no dif- ferent from the first. The Cou- gars quickly jumped on the Bulldogs who just couldn't get any traction on the snow-cover- ed turf. Dudas gave the Cougars a 23-0 lead with his perfect field goal shot early in the second half while Sikora followed up with a long boot into the ,end zone, forcing the BuMogs to concede a single point. With the score 24-0, Randy Royer finished off tie scorinj for the Cougars to the thirc quarter after he recovered n fumble in the end zone by Cyri' Patson, the Bulldogs' punter. Joe Meli led things off in the final quarter of play as he earned six points for the Cou- gars on a short run. After a two point safety touch, John Kostiuk capped off the Cougars' successful evening with his seventh touchdown of the season. Meanwhile, in eastern divi- sion action the Medicine Hat Mohawks upset the league-lead ing McCoy Colts 7-6 last night. The Colts held quarter leads Of 6-0, 6-1 and 6-1 before Mo- hawks' quarterback Glen Os- good scored at the mark of the final frame for the vie- tory. Neil Bzoak was the lone Colts' scorer. In league action tonight, the LCI Rams face the visiting Medicine Hat Crescent Heights Vikings and must pick up a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive.
