Elk Q NAME ADDRESS POSTAL CODE LANDS AND FORESTS Thinking about tomorrow ...today The Herald Sports Dave Jackson romps into end zone Saturday night with one of his five touchdowns. Scores five touchdowns Jackson leads Cougars to win By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Saturday was Don Jackson's night at the Henderson Stadium in Lethbridge. The 150 pound Catholic Central Cougar halfback scored five touchdowns and led the Cougars to a 59-34 romp over the Medicine Hat Mohawks in Southern Alberta High School Football League action. Besides the five majors Jackson piled up 163 yards rushing and another 132 yards passing for a total offensive outing of 295 yards. The victory moved the Cougars into a first place tie in the West Division of the league with Winston Churchill Bulldogs. Both clubs have two wins and no loses. LCI Rams trail with an 0-2 record. Barry Niedermier also had a big game for the Cougars Saturday, scoring two touchdowns and bulling his six foot three inch, 210 pound frame through the Mohawk defence for 117 yards. The remaining Cougar touchdown came when Steve Devcic plunged over from the Mohawk one yard line at the beginning of the second quarter. The talented toe of George Seiller was responsible for 11 Cougar points as he connected on eight straight convert attempts plus a 32 yard field goal. The Cougars amassed a total offence of 536 yards, including 189 in the air as quarterback Alan Boras hit on eight of 12 passes. He was four for four in the second half. Jackson's five majors were as varied as five touchdowns could be. His first major came in the opening quarter when he returned a Mohawk linedrive type punt 55 yards. The se- cond Jackson touchdown was a 61 yard pass and run play from quarterback Boras. Boras found Jackson on a 13 yard pass play for his third major and then he hit him on a 49 yard pass and run for his fourth. Jackson's fifth major was a spectacular 99 yard run down the right sideline on a sweep play in the dying minutes .of the game. Niedermier opened the scoring in the wide open contest when he banged through the middle of the Mohawk defence for 64 yards and the touchdown the first time the Cougars had the ball. Jackson's first major followed and the Cougars closed out the quarter with a 14-0 lead. Steve Devcic, who gained 42 yeards in the game, div- ed over from the Mohawk one on the first series of plays in the second quarter. With the score 21-0 Cougar coach Dean Dahl pulled most of his first string defensive unit off the field and went the rest of the game with his second stringers. The Mohawks hit the Scoreboard when Dean Osgood scored the first of his two touchdowns with a 13 yard run. The convert was missed and the score remained 21-6. Mohawk quarterback Garry Stelter then made it 21-12 when he plunged in from the Cougar two with the first of his three majors. Jackson ran the score to 28-12 with touchdown number two and Seiller closed out the first half at 31-12, kicking a 32 yard field goal. Stelter, who ran 107 yards over the night for the Mohawks, opened the second half with a 12 yard touchdown run and Tom Coffey ran in for a two point conversion and the gap closed to 31-20. Neidermier widened the margin to 38-20 when he literally bulled his way 11 yards through the middle of the Mohawk line. Stelter scored the last of his three majors with a four yard run in the fourth quarter and a two point conversion made it 38-28. Jackson ran the score to 45-28 then Osgood galloped over for his second major on a 15 yard run, moving the score to 45-34. Jackson's two final touchdowns rounded out the wild and woolly contest that saw a total of 13 touchdowns, one field goal, eight single point converts and two two point conversions scored for a total of 93 points overall. THE FIFTH QUARTER Public address an- nouncer Gordon Thomas keeps the crowds awake with his lively, original commentary head referee for the contest was Keith Jorgenson there were 14 scoring plays, or about one scoring play every three and a third minutes Mohawk halfback Rod Schmidick was taken to St. Michael's Hospital with a leg injury but was releas- ed after treatment the tie for first between the Bulldogs and the Cougars will be broken Friday when the two clubs meet at Henderson at 8 Dean Osgood and Tom Coffey has 45 and 44 yards rushing for the Mohawks. the Mohawk offence racked up 230 yards rushing and 62 in the air Mauro Cattoni. the Cougar reserve quarter- back, was in for a series of plays Jackson could have scored six majors but had one called back due to a penalty Friday at Medicine Hat Crescent Heights whipped McCoy High 50-6 undefeated Crescent Heights goes against LCI next Saturday at Henderson Coach Dahl s manouvre of removing his first string defensive unit made for a far better game from the fans point of view. Jackie does her own thing By GARRY ALLISON Herald Sports Writer Jacqueline Gruninger believes in doing her own thing. It just so happens that her "thing" is football. And it must be admitted that football is a strange place to find a pretty 21 year old blonde. Jackie is not only the official statistician for the Southern Alberta High School Football League but is also the only girl to ever enroll in the football class at the University of Lethbridge. "We allowed Jackie to enrol! in the class for a number of reasons." U of L athletic director Dr. Gary Bowie stated. "Many of our other sports have a female counterpart, but if a girl wants to learn the fundamentals of football she has no place to go. Besides that the high schools now have flag football on their schedules, so their is a growing interest in the sport among the girls." The high school statistician's job is a direct result of the U of L class. "I do Uie stats all year and it saves me writing a term Jackie said. "Its an awful lot of work though, and I sure wouldn't wish it on anyone else." The football class itself delves into the rules and regulations of the sport. It also has field work, built around the pass patterns, running plays, handoffs. stances and all other aspects of the game. "We don't tackle Jackie said, "because we lack equipment. We play a two hand touch game." 'I am in the football class because, first of al] I've always loved football, and secondly men think women can't understand the game and I want to prove them wrong." Jackie claims she is not a women's lib supporter. "I'm against women's lib in the sense that a real woman's libber says girls should dominate, and par- ticipate in all sports like football: but I support it in the sense that men should discuss men oriented activities on an equal basis with women." Jackie doesn't feel she's a torn boy. though she says she was when she was younger. "I do enjoy football and hockey a lot more than going to a beauty parlor she laughed. Besides football Jackie likes soccer, softball
