The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. Rams, led by the sparkling two-way play Mark Baldry, dumped the Winston Churchill Bulldogs 21-7 at Henderson Park Friday night, and suddenly the outcome of next week's contest between the. Bulldogs and the Catholic Central Cougars became merely academic. The Cougars whipped the Medicine Hat McCoy Colts 35-1 in the Gas City Friday, and their win, coupled with the Bulldog loss, clinched the West Division crown for Dean Dahl's Catholic Central crew. The Cougars had been two points up on Winston Churchill going into last night's action. Had the two teams both won or lost, the championship would have gone right down to the season's final game between the two clubs next Friday at Henderson. Baldry came up with another outstanding performance for the defending champion Rams last night; rushing for 145 yards, and scoring two touchdowns, one on a punt which he blocked himself and ran in for the major score.. The Rams built up a 21-0 half time lead, and maintained that margin until Derek Redman ran an interception back 86 yards for a Winston Churchill touchdown early in the fourth quarter. The LCI defence was a force to be reckoned with all night. They allowed the Bulldog offense no points, only eight first downs, and came up time and time again with the big play to snuff out a Winston Churchill drive. The first time the Rams got their hands on the ball, they marched Z3 yards on 16 with Baldry blasting up the mid- dle from the two-yard Une for the major score. Despite getting three tries at convert, the Rams failed and the score remained16-0. The Bulldogs had forced the Rams to punt from their own 25 early in the drive, but a rough-play penalty on the play gave the ball back to the Rams at their own 40-yard line, and from there Baldry and Dwight Hudson ran right up the middle of the Winston Churchill defense with relative ease. The Bulldogs took possession of the ball at their own 40 as the second quarter opened, and quickly moved the ball into Ram territory, but Sid Collier closed the door on a promising drive when h6 recovered Greg Martin's fumble for LCI. The Rams took over at the Bulldog 54, and Baldry promptly broke two tackles and raced up the middle for 46 yards to the Churchill nine-yard line. Three plays later, Tracy Cooler found himself a hole wide enough for a truck as he took the ball in from the five on a third- NO WON THE AIR SPORTS NEWS at a.m., p.m. and p.m. With BRENT SEELY down gamble. This time Sid Collier booted the ball straight through the uprights to give LCI a 13-0 lead. The Bulldogs looked to have another drive going late in the first half, as they churned up 38 yards on three sweeps. However, first Kerwin Kotkas and then Kelly Attwell broke through to saddle the Bulldogs with losses and force a punt. Baldry then made it three big defensive plays in a row with his blocked punt and touchdown. On the convert attempt, it was Baldry again, passing to Kotkas for two points to give the Rams a 21-0 lead as the clubs headed, for the dressing room. The Rams defence almost set up another touchdown when Kelly Attwell intercepted a Derek Redman pass at the Bulldog 24 midway through the third quarter. However, the Churchill defence came up big on a third and two situation at their own five to thwart the Rams. Derek, Redman gave Winston Churchill fans their only chance to cheer early in the final quarter when lie intercepted one of only three Ram passes all evening and took off down the left sideline 86 yards for a major score, Mark Rowe booted the convert to make the score 21-7. throughout the rest of the contest, Winston Cturchill went to a shotgun formation and a hurry-up offense every time they got the ball, but the Ram defence gave quarterback Redman lit- tle'time to find his receivers and the Bulldogs failed to mount a serious threat. The game ended with the Rams on the Bulldog one-yard line following a 28-yard pass and run play from Mark Baldry to Kerwin Kotkas. In Medicipe Hat, Alan Boras completed 14 of 18 passes and threw three touchdown passes as Catholic Central came back from a 1-0 first-quarter deficit to bomb McCoy 35-1. The Colts had scored on a 68-yard single in the opening quarter, but Dave Jackson ran five yards for one major and combined with Boras On a SOryard pass and run play for another as the Cougars opened up z 14-1 lead. George Seiller converted both majors. In the third quarter, Boras found Barry Niedermeir on a screen pass which went 65 yards to the McCoy one-yard line. Oh the next play, fittingly, Niedermeir plunged in for the major score and Seiller converted to make it 21-1. The Cougars got two more touchdowns in the final frame, one on a five-yard run by Dominic Santangelo, and the other on a 15-yard pass play from Boras to David Rohoyie. Seiller made it five-for-five to round out the scoring. YARDSTICKS The Rams rolled for 270 yards on the ground Friday, led by Baldry's 145 Dwight Hudson had 70 yards while Greg Martin led the Bulldogs with 52 yards Churchill had 88 yards via the aerial route, as Redman com- pleted eight of 13 attempts Barry Schmidt caught four of those for 57 yards, demonstrating a fine pair of hands and an ability to run good patterns in doing so the entire LCI defence deserves commendation, but Colin Barnes led the tacklers with seven.... the Bulldog defence relied upon Norman Beta and Albert brought down 20 and 19 Rams respectively one couldn't ask for a better night for .football.
