Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI irHIKIDOI HfRALD Oclobtr 36, Claims officials missed offside call late in game Berger lodges protest after weekend setback MONTREAL (CP) Sam Berger, owner nf Montreal Al- oucttcs, lodged an official pro- test Monday with Jako G-au- riaur commissioner of the Ca- ii a dl an Football Conference, over his club's 10-18 loss to Win- nipeg Blue Bombers Sunday. I Western Football Conference Berger lodged the protest lowing a meeting with general manager Red O'Quinn and head coach Sam Etchcvcrry. The three watched the films of the Sunday contest against the team, with Berger filing the ac- tion based on an alleged missed offside call by the officials lato in the contest. If Gaudaur upholds the pro- test, it could mean that the en- Rombers to playoifs Herron, Jonas lead way TORONTO Herron and Don Jonas of the Blue Bombers, and their final statis- tics point them out as two of the Canadian Football League's outstanding players. Although four CFL games re- main, the Bombers wrapped up their last one Sunday with a 19- 18 win over Montreal Alouettes, gaining a Western Conference playoff spot for the first time since 1966. The league's weekly statistics show Jonas with 121 scoring points and yards gained by passing and Herron with 54 points and yards gained on rushing, kiekoff returns and pass receiving. Herron's yards on kick- off returns is a league season record, as was the 35 returns he handled. Dave Raimey, former Blue Bomber now with Toronto Argonauts, set the previous yar- dage record of 930 in 1968. Pete Thoclos of Calgary Stampeders in 1952 set the record of 32 kick- offs returned. Jonas' 12! on Four touchdowns, 40 converts, 14 field goals and 12 singles fell short of the record of 14S points set two seasons ago by Tommy Joe Cof- fey of Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Still, Jonas appears to have clinched the league scoring i Jerry Organ of Ottawa Roiuih championship for the season.

The announcement was made following a meeting here of Ladies Curling Asso- ciation officials and the spon- sor. tiro game or the final two min- utes of the contest would have to bo replayed. Winnipeg's victory earned the Bombers their first spot in the WFC playoffs since 1966 but the Montreal loss left the Als' still groping for a playoff position in the EFC. Berger said that films of tile final two minutes of the game showed that both the Winnipeg defensive tackle and a line- SHARED CIRCUIT HONORS tynn Jensen, left, of Cardston and Rocky Rockabar of Medicine Hat shared top honors at the wind-up banquet for the Southern Alberta Rodeo Circuit held at Taber this past weekend. Jensen was tops in all-round competition as well as bareback riding. Rockabar led the way in saddle bronc and bull riding. Minor hockey The 1971-72 Lethbridge Minor Hockey season got under way Monday evening with four games. Conrad Suyker and David Bourassa scored twice each to pace the Maroons to a 6-1 win over the Black Hawks in one Bantam A encounter. Harold Janz and David Linton added singles for the winners. Barry S'chmidt averted a shutout for the Hawks with a first-period goal. In the second Bantam A game opening night the Jets scored twice in the third period for a narrow 3-2 win over the Canadians. Greg Graham, Gary Dogter- om and Dairy] Mock shared the scoring for the Jets while Layne Mitson and Ken Torfa- son notched the markers for the Canadians. In Bantam B play the Ram- blers belted the Mustangs 9-1. Rod Ross led the way with three goals. Randy Service chipped in with a pah' while solo efforts were turned in by Brian Sauer, Darryl Vogt, Terry McNeely and Patrick McCune. A tlu-ee-goal outburst in the final period canned the Royals to a 3-3 deadlock with the Comets in Midget action. Bill Ross, Cam Mclntosh and Barry Sedgewick scored for the Royals in the last 20 min- utes after Tom Kenealy, with two and Sid Collier a single- ton, had given the Comets a 3-0 lead. A practice and tryout will be held at the Civic Ice Centre at p.m. Wednesday for the Lethbridge Juvenile Warriors to select a team. The Warriors have been entered in the South- ern Alberta Juvenile League which commences November 6.

He said that rule 4 article 2, of the official playing rules of the CFL is explicit in that the most forward part of the player must not be within one yard of the line of scrimmage when the ball is snapped. In the case of the play in question, both the defensive tac- kle and middle linebacker of the Winnipeg team were encroach- ing on the line of scrimmage, an action which stopped the Montreal drive on the Winnipeg 27-yard Berger said. 'This prevented further op- portunity (for us) to score a touchdown, field goal or a stogie point." A tie with the Bombers would have assured Montreal a playoff; spot in the tight EFC race. The only sure way the Als can as- sure themselves of a playoff position at the moment is to de- feat the Rough Ridel's in Ottawa next Saturday. Montreal has not won a game in the capital since 1963. Published reports here indi- cated that even the Winnipeg linebacker in question, Mickey Doyle, would not deny that he was offside on the play. 'But they (the officials) didn't call it, did Doyle said in the dressing room. "And I guess that's all that matters. "They sent in a defensive play from the bench on that one and at the last second I decided to do something Doyle said. "I knew there'd be hell to pay if I didn't get the quarterback, so maybe I was a little anxious." On the play in question, Mont- real was first and 10 on the Winnipeg 27. The Als lined up for a quick trap play with Moses Denson scheduled to hit the left side of the line. "Doyle was my Ed George, the Als giant offensive lineman, said. "But before the ball was even snapped, I looked up for him and he was gone." Quarterback Jim Chasey was forced to scramble in an at- tempt to elude Doyle but the Winnipeg linebacker caught him 2nd spun him around. Chasey suffered a dislocation of Ms left elbow on the play and wound up in a Montreal hospital for a cast.

The win was worth to Run The Gantlet, the odds-on favorite of the crowd that paid to win.
