The victory sent.Ticats into the conference lead with 16 points, two ahead of Toronto and Montreal Alouettes, and nullified any plans the Argos had about finishing first. Hamilton, Toronto and Mont- real were locked in a three-way struggle for first going into weekend action. The Als, in the favorite's role at home where they had won their five previous starts this season, Saturday were sent reel- ing 28-12 by Ottawa Rough Ri- ders. Toronto went into Hamilton favored to sweep their three- game set with the Ticats but discovered early the aging Tiger defence wasn't ready to roll over and die. GABLER DIRECTS WIN Quarterback Wally Gabler, whom the Argos found expenda- ble last year and who arrived in Hamilton at mid-season by way of Winnipeg Blue Bombers, en- gineered the victory. Gabler has seldom looked more impressive, completing U of 23 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns.

Uncompromising defensive play by the Stampeders rele-< gated the Lions to a fourth- place finish, with Winnipeg far below with only two triumphs. Rookie Larry Lawrence called signals for Calgary and com- pleted 10 of 24 passes for 169 yards, 'including a touchdown throw to Herm Harrison. Larry Hobinson kicked four converts to establish a Canadian Football League career record. He has 273, three more than the now-inactive Don Sutherin who played for 11 years in the East- ern Conference. Robinson, in his 10th season, needs one field goal to equal Sutherin.'s career record of 114. He tried four Sun- day, but had to settle for a sin- gle' point. Calgary intercepted six B.C. passes, with Howard Starks grabbing three. McKinnis rushed for 130 yards to increase his total for the s.ea. son to The Calgary rookie is 108 yards ahead of the Lions' Jim Evenson and each player has one game left to play. Jim Sillye of Calgary returned eight punts to set a Canadian Football League season record of 117, five more than team- mate Rudy Linterman returned in 1968. The Eskimos offence was un- impressive against Winnipeg and the defence, led by Greg Pipes, had to come to the res- cue to stop a half-dozen scoring chances by the Blue Bombers. Winnipeg got inside the Ed- monton 35-yard line on six occa- sions ;and inside the 10 twice in the fourth quarter, but could manage only a touchdown by Charlie Bryant, a couple of sin- gles by Gene Lakusiak and a field goal by Chuck Liebn The Eskimos did all thsir scoring in a i span of two min- utes in the second quarter, with Pipes igniting the outburst. The Edmonton defensive tackle roared in to block a punt by Ed I TJlmer of Winnipeg.. The ball on it for a touchdown. Quarterback Don Trull then threw to Mike Eben in the left flat and the Canadian flanker ran 63 yards down the sideline for a touchdown. Terry Swam :hrew a nice block, to clear the road. Dave Cutler kicked two con- verts and a single to raise his season scoring total to 102 points, one behind Jack Abend schan of Saskatchewan Rough- riders. Th.e Eskimos and the Roughriders meet in Regina Wednesday night. Cutler tried a 55-yard fiel< goal in the third quarter ant had the distance but the ball hi the goal post. John Wydareny snuffed oul one Winnipeg scoring threal with his llth interception, equal- ling the CFL season record he shares with sutherin.
