Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, October 24, 1974 THE UETHBRIDQE HERALD 13 Graham Kelly Ron rough on Leos When I picked the Saskatchewan Roughriders to defeat the British Columbia Lions last Saturday night in their tussle at Empire Stadium, it was strictly on the basis of hope, heart, and habit. I had no concrete evidence at this stage of the season to count the Leos out. As events would have it, the Roughriders went on to overcome a 14-noint lead, ending their regular season play with B.C. on a winning note. The Roughies took all three contests, 38-16, 17-15, and 24-21. B.C. has only managed one win over the western Roughriders since 1965. As has been so often the case, it was little Number 23 that broke the enemy heart. With less than a minute to go, Lancaster directed his charges down the field, scoring the go-ahead touchdown with but five seconds showing on the clock. He hit Bob Pierce on a long strike to set up the touchdown. An interference call nullified a B.C. interception, and George Reed poked over from the one. Moments earlier it looked as if the Lion lead would hold up. Saskatchewan was called for no yards, a call that was questionable because of the inconsistency of officials in calling such penalties. Throughout the game and the season punt returners have seldom been granted five yards by over-zealous defenders. The referees seldom call it. But then, once in awhile, seemingly out of the blue, the red flag will be thrown and too often at a critical time in the proceedings However, in this case the Mean Green held, forcing Slade Willis to punt. Once again Saskatchewan was penalized, this time for interfernng with the kicker. Personally I thought it was a good call. But all seemed lost for Stubble Jumper sup- porters when the Riders took possession in the vicinity of their own 30-yard line. Then Ronnie Lancaster went to work, and once again Saskatchewan had B.C.'s number. Many B C. fans probably left the park muttering about that interminable Roughnder luck. I beg to differ. Saskatchewan won the football game because their defence solved a new Lion formation, and because the quarterback was able to find a glar- ing weakness in the B.C. secondary and exploit it for all it was worth It happened to be worth three touchdowns. It had to be, because the B.C. offence was nothing short of awesome for three quarters of play. Lou Harris, possibly the best back in the country, was simply sensational. Both he and his sidekick Monroe Eley picked up over 100 yards rushing with Eley joining the yard club for his efforts. If you don't think that kind of running is something else again, consider the fact that since 1964 when George Reed and Ed Buchanan both picked up over yards for Saskatchewan, Harris and Eley are the only ones to achieve that feat For three-quarters, the Lion ground game was unstoppable The Leos put the flanker, tne split end, and backs all on one side, and then ran a power sweep in that direction Time and again the Lion blockers mowed the Roughnder linebackers down In the second quarter, Harris and Eley put on one of the greatest shows of running that I have ever seen Harris is tremendously quick, slashing back into the middle, eluding a tackle around the end Eley was no slouch either. But give a lot of credit to Curtis Westers and Mike Lahood for an outstanding blocking job In fact, the rest of that line with Slade Willis and Tony Moro or Lefty Hendnckson at ends, Layne McDowell, Lanny Boleski, and Al Wilson perform brilliantly. I thought Edmonton had the best offensive line, but B C. can now lay claim to that honour. In the third quarter, save a touchdown by Monroe Eley, the tide began to, turn. The Saskatchewan defence solved the problem of the' new formation by holding the linebackers back for a second and then penetrating or pursuing It worked About the same time, Lancaster began to exploit Wayne Matherne by isolating Bob Pierce on the unfortunate right cornerback Throughout the game, Lancaster had tried a variety of pass- ing situations, finally coming across the one that would work Those passes to Pierce, plus a beautiful touchdown strike to Campana proved to be the key. Another one is worthy of men- tion Lancaster ran a semi-bootleg, handed the ball off to Bob Pierce on a kind of semi-reverse, and then Pierce threw a long pass The first time they tried it, Rhett Dawson caught up to the ball flush on the sideline. He tried to avoid going out of bounds and catch it at the same time. The play didn't work. But Lan- caster came back with it in the fourth quarter, again to Dawson. This time it worked. A veteran, experienced quarterback ex- ploited an opposition weakness. B.C. outplayed Saskatchewan, but the Riders had to win and they did. The Edmonton Eskimos also had to win. Unleashing a devastating running attack to overcome a 35 mile-an-hour wind, the Eskimos did just enough to come out with two points. Although they dominated the game, a break or two for the Bombers could have made the difference with a final score of 17-10. But Edmonton ran the clock out with sustained marches, certainly the mark of a good football club. Ray Jauch cannot be altogether happy, though, because once again his charges failed to put a lot of points on the board. All of Edmonton's 17 points came on kicking with the exception of a safety-touch. With Wilkinson, Harrell, Bell, and Walls, you would think that Edmonton would have little trouble running up a score However, a split with the Lions will still give the Igloo dwellers first place in the West Winnipeg has had a problem at quarterback the last two out- ings Tom Scott, Jim Washington, Dave Buchanan, Bob Larose and Dave Bailey have given the Bombers lots of offence when Chuck Eatey has been able to get it together. Unfortunately for Winnipeg fans he has been inconsistent of late. This has to worry head coach Bod Riley because the Bombers have to keep on winning in order to make the playoffs. A tie with Edmonton or B.C. would put them out Only Saskatchewan has fallen more than once to the Blue Bombers. If Winnipeg, B.C. and Saskatchewan all end up with 18 points, then points for and against would enter the picture with Saskatchewan likely having the edge over Winnipeg. The Bombers, therefore have to beat Calgary both times to make it for sure, although once will suffice if Saskatchewan loses to Montreal. But beating Calgary is no longer a cinch. 1974 CLEARANCE ON ALL NEW and RENTAL SKIPPERS ON RIGHT NOW Rolling along the Highway, on a bicycle built for two, was a way of life with Grandma, but is not the way for you.

When Bill Fairbairn scored his third New York goal in Wednesday night's 5-1 National Hockey League triumph over St. Louis Blues, a solitary, beatup old cap made its way to the ice. In a way, though, that was appropriate. Fairbairn is known as "an honest hockey player." No flashy moves, just determination and hard work. Three other players got three goals each as Atlanta Flames whipped Detroit Red Wings 10-1, Montreal Canadiens edged Toronto Three could place TORONTO (CP) Would you believe a three way tie for second place in the Western Football Conference? It's a possibility for Saskatchewan Roughriders, British Columbia Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Canadian Football League says the Roughriders, Lions and Bombers each could wind up with 18 points if they follow this script: wins its final league game this Sunday in Regina against Montreal Alouettes of the Eastern Foot- ball Conference. takes two hi a home and home series against Calgary Stampeders. The first game is Sunday in Calgary and the second Nov. 3 in Winnipeg. Columbia splits a home and home series against Edmonton Eskimos. The first game is Saturday in Edmonton and the second Nov 2 in Vancouver Assuming the teams are deadlocked, nine games between Saskatchewan, B.C. and Winnipeg would be lumped into a special standing which would look like this: W L F A PtS. Sask 4 2 142 109 8 BC 3 3 125 117 6 Winnipeg 2 4 95 146 4 The Roughriders would be awarded second on their 4-2 record, which includes three wins over B.C. and one over Winnipeg. The Lions, with their 3-3 record against the Ronghriders and Bombers, would take the third and final playoff position. The Lions defeated the Bombers three times this season Even if the teams finished with 3-3 records, the order would remain the same on the basis of net aggregate points, the CFL's No 2 priority for deciding playoff teams when two or more clubs are deadlocked. Saskatchewan is plus 33, B.C. plus 18 and Winnipeg minus 51 Entering weekend action, the Eskimos lead toe WFC with 17 points and can clinch first with one win against the Lions Maple Leafs 3-2, Chicago Black Hawks defeated Washington Capitals 3-2, Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins tied 5-5 and Kansas City Scouts earned their first point with a 4-4 tie against California Golden Seals Fairbairn wasn't excited about his highest single-game goal output in five NHL sea- sons. "It wasn't much of a hat the quiet right-winger said "The only goal that was any good was the second one." Fairbairn's first shot had entered the St Louis net after bouncing off the chest of Blues goalie Ed Johnston and hitting St. Louis defenceman Barclay Plager in the forehead. The third one also went in off a Blues defenceman But the second goal was the kind that brings fans to their feet. New York's Steve Vickers had the puck in the corner and fed it to Fairbairn about 20 feet in front of John- ston, who had no time to get set for the right wing's rising wrist shot That gave the Rangers a 2-1 lead at 1 09 of the middle pe- riod, after the Blues' Billy Collins had tied the game with a shorthanded goal midway through the first period. Then Jerry Butler added a break- Cougars want to go undefeated Although the contest won't decide first place in the West Division of the Southern Alberta High School Football League as was expected, there will be a lot on the line when the Winston Churchill Bulldogs tangle with the Catholic Central Cougars at Henderson Park Friday night The Cougars wrapped up the Western title last Friday when they whipped Medicine Hat McCoy Colts 35-1 while the Bulldogs were being upset by the LCI Rams 21-7. But they won't be taking it easy when the opening kickoff is booted Friday at eight and neither will the Bulldogs For the Cougars, there is an undefeated season-riding on the game, while tne Bulldogs risk falling into last place should they lose. The Cougars sport a record of five wins, no losses and one tie heading into the regular season's final game, while Winston Churchill is 3-2-1, only one point ahead of the LCI Rams, who have split their six games. The Rams will be in Medicine Hat Friday to play toe McCoy Colts, and a Ram win coupled with a Bulldog loss would drop Winston Churchill into last place. The Bulldogs and Cougars battled to a 7-7 tie in their first encounter this season. It was expected that the West Divi- sion championship would go right down to this final game, but the Bandogs were onset on successive weekends and fell oat of contention First they were shutout 31-0 by Medicine Hat's Crescent Heights Vikings. Then, they fell to the Rams last Friday. away score, Vickers deflected a Walt Tkaczuk pass into the goal, and Fairbairn scored his third of the night. "I never even scored three goals in the Central said Fairbairn, who added that he was just as happy the Rangers had given up only one goal as he was with scoring three of his own. "You can't fault the Fairbairn said, further belittling his effort. "One goes in off the defence, then another does When I get a good, honest hat trick, then I'll have something to be real- ly happy about" Houston Aeros opened defence of their World Hockey Association championship im- pressively enough two weeks ago but now they appear to be resting on their laurels. The Aeros suffered their fourth straight loss Wednes- day night, dropping a 5-4 deci- sion to New England Whalers at Springfield, Mass. In other action Wednesday, Vancouver Blazers, 6-0 losers to Houston in the opener a week ago, beat Cleveland Crusaders 4-1 and Quebec Nordiques whipped Michigan Stags 6-2 One of Houston's problems appears to be a lack of punch from the Howe die and sons Mark and Marty. The elder Howe provided one assist Wednesday night for the family's only point New England outshot the Aeros 40-31 with Fred O'Donnell, former Boston Bruins winger in the National Hockey League, providing two Whalers goals.
