By LLOYD YAMAGiSHI Herald Sports Writer The Catholic Central Cougars were hungry for first place in Southern Alberta High School Football League and de- voured the defenceless LCI Rams 33-7 Friday night. The victory allowed the smooth playing Cougars sole possession of top spM with a 3-0 record which broke the pre- vious tie with the Rams. Meanwhile action will resume at Henderson tonight as the winless Winston "Churchill Bull- dogs will be looking for their first victory of the season. With a big change in their backfield the Bulldogs will host the Medicine Hat High School Mohawks who have earned one victory in two starts thus far. Game time is set for 8 p.m. The Henderson bleachers were stamped and jumped on as loyal Cougar fans urged their players to the one sided victory last night. On the other hand the Ham fans didn't have too much to cheer about as they watched the powerful Cougar defence continually stop the umiaDy potent Ram offensive. The Cougar's defensive unit did more than their share, blocking three punts which eventually turned into touch- downs. The first blocked punt oc- curred during the Ram's first Aeries of plays in the game. On the first offensive play for the Cougars, John Kostiuk, the Cougar's speedy halfback picked up his first of four ma- jors, tearing around the right end going 30 yards to the end zone. John Dudas failed to connect on the convert attempt. With the score 6-0 the Cou- gars struck pay dirt again with only two minutes remain- ing in the quarter. The Cougar's defensive unit once again came up with the big play as they blocked an- other third down punt attempt by kicker Terry Pocza leaving the ball on the Ram's own 15 yard line. Four plays later Bob Parkyn drove up the middle from the one yard line for the major score. The convert attempt was blocked again by the Rams as they trailed 12-0. The Rams took possession of the ball on their own 17 yard line after the kick off but couldn't muster up a good at- tack. With into the dressing room at half time. Dudas also added a 30' yard boot into the Ram's end zone which went for a safety touch, good for one extra point. The Rams came alive mid- way through the third quarter for their only points of game. ing across the goal line from five yards out on a roll-out pat- tern. Pocza's convert attempt was good giving the Rams their sev- enth and final point. The Earns controlled the ball from there on until one minute the remained in the important con- Itest. Quarterback Randy Stevens capped the 87 yard march barg- Wilh less than a minute re- maining Jim Wilson intercept- ed a pass giving the Cougars possession of the ball on the Ram's 39 yard line. Two plays later Kostiuk top- ped his outstanding individual ouling galloping 16 yards for his fourth touchdown of the eve- ning. CHALK TALK The Cou- gar's defensive unit played bril- liantly throughout the game. Kostiuk was the leading ground gainer picking up 122 yards In 17 plays. Halfback Guy Poma- hac, who replaced Kostiuk last weekend could have been used more. Larry Gibb led the Ram's backfield picking up 32 yards on 10 carries. Dennis Halt led the aerial attack for the Rams pulling in three passes for 46 yards. On one catch the lanky end made a fantastic one-hand- ed stab. a third down and six yards to go, the Ram's brought in Pocza to get themselves out of trouble. The snap was high and the Cougar's downed Pocza on his own 11 yard line as the gun sounded to end the first quarter. On the second play into the second quarter Kostiuk ran his favorite play around the right end to score his second touchdown of the evening. Once again Dudas missed on his convert try leaving the score 18-0. The Rams maintained the ball for six plays after the kick-off but found themselves in d e e p trouble again as the Cougars I broke through the line to block their third kick of the evening. Bob Modrzejewski blocked the kick and recovered to give the Cougars a first and 10 situation on the Ram's 20 yard line. Two plays later quarterback Fred Hoffarth found Kostiuk in tiie open and nailed him with a 15 yard pass and run play. Dudas made his fourth try a good one and gave the Cou- gars a commanding 25-0 lead Keeling, Barton will be watching Former NFL quarterback Karl Sweetan left Edmonton Friday after the EsMes rejecetd a no-cut contract, leaving Larry Lawrence and Bruce Lemmer- man for pivot duties against Saskatchewan.

Because habitat conditions, and waterfowl popu- lations generally, remain at satisfactory levels eight ducks may be taken daily and 16 possessed. Bag and possession limits on geese are five and 10, including limits of two and four on white-fronted geese; on Wilson's snipe, 10 and 20, and on rails and coots eight and 16. The changes in the Migratory Birds Regulations .are part of a continuing CWS program to make the general regulations uniform federally and to avoid redundancy and unenforceable prohibitions. Hunters must check provincial regulations for additional re- strictions, as these have now been largely deleted from the federal regulations. Hunters may use power boats this year in order to recover a bird which has been crippled. Other uses of power boats as defined in the regulations, are still prohibited. Crippled birds may be shot from a power boat only when the engine is turned off and forward motion has ceased. Hunters must carry a valid migratory game bird hunting permit (available at post offices for in addition to the provincial wildlife certificate and the game bird stamp. The migratory game bird season in southern Alberta opened last Monday-. The more serious hunt- ers have been having considerable success with both ducks and geese, but there has been little movement of northern birds into this part of the country. THE SECOND ANNUAL Bill Snider Memorial Trophy Shoot will be held at the Lethbridge Trap Club Sunday starting at 9 a.m. Lunch will be avail- able. All trapshooters and visitors are encouraged to attend. There will be three events: 100 sixteen-yard tar- gets; 100 handicap targets yards and 25 pairs of doubles. THE LETHBRIDGE FISH AND GAME Associa- tion is calling for a work party at the fish and game range Sunday. The clean-up will be from 8 a.m. to noon. Tuesday, starting at p.m. the fish and game association will hold a reloading session at the club- rooms on 9th Ave. S. Equipment wDl be available for rifle, shotgun and pistol shells. THE TYRRELL'S LAKE Fishermen's Associa- tion is putting on a fall, and hopefully final drive to raise a few hundred more dollars. In addition to another heavy stocking of trout in Tyrrell's this spring, the association improved boat launching facilities in the parking area and has had a caretaker keep the grounds clean throughout the summer months. This has left a hole in the bank account. Contri- butions may be forwarded to Ernie Reed at Warner; chairman Pel Balderson, Box 86, Magrath; to the as- sociation at Box 495 Lethbridge or the writer of this column. Incidentally, the cooler evenings have brought the Tyrrell rainbows back to real life. Last year's plantings are now averaging between three and four pounds and this spring's plantings are 10 to 12 inches long. While the trout are striking throughout the day, the best times are early morning and late afternoon. Gaudaur rules roost days after a controversial call and fined a player Ed George, offensive tackle for Montreal Alouettes, hit punt-return man Jim S'iliye of Calgary Stampeders inside the five-yard safety zone granted kick receivers in the CFL. Unlike the National League In the United States, the CFL has no "fair catch" rule, but gives receivers a five-yard margin of safely into which would-be tack- lers may not venture until the WATER, WHITE DFATH" TIM hunt lor the GIMI Shn FAMILY FAMILY COMING SOON PARAMOUNT receiver has touched the ball. Only exception to that rule is the punter' himself. G e i r g e, 6-foot-4, 260-pound tackle, hit Sillye, 5-foot-10, be- fore the ball reached him. The incident occurred in the dying moments of the game, we; 26-11 by Montreal. "Ed George has been fined and informed that similar conduct in the future will result in more severe disciplinary ac- the commissioner said. The commissioner said he made the decision after receiv- ing reports of game officials and Hap Shouldice, supervisor of officials. Montreal was penalized 25 for being inside the five-yard zone and 15 for unnec- essary roughness. Gaudaur said he "judged the act was such that it merited the maximum penalty of 25 yards" for roughness, which would have meant automatic ejection from the game for George. The commissioner said that so far as he knew, it was un- precedented to fine a player who hnd not been ejected from a game and added: "Yes, I'm over-ruling the offi- cial who made the another unprecedented action. By THE CANADIAN PRESS The sports adage that says in- juries can be a leveller will be put to a test in Canadian Foot- ball League action this week- end. Two of the CFL's foremost quarterbacks will be watching from the sidelines when Toronto Argonauts, Eastern Foolball Conference leaders, oppose Cal- gary Stampeders, so far the best in the Western Conference, at CNE Stadium tonight. The same situation won't pre- vail Sunday when Hamilton Ti- g e r -C a t s line up at home against Ottawa Hough Riders, but that lias other quarterback overtones. The Calgary-Toronto game, starting at 5 p.m. MST, will be carried nationally by CBC tele- vision. The Ottawa-Hamilton game will be televised on the CTV eastern network. With No. 1 quarterback Jerry Keeling out with a slight shoul- d e r separation, Stampeders' coadi Jim Duncan plans to go with Jim Lindsey from Abilene Christian University and Bill Van Burkleo as backup. One of Argos' starting quart- erbacks, Greg Barton, will re- main inactive, despite an in- tense desire to see action. He has a broken little finger en- cased in a heavy cast. Toronto coach Leo Cahill has edge, being able to give Joe Theismann the nod to direct Argos on the field. Like Lind- sey, Theismann is a rookie, but he has been alternating with Barton, a former National Foot- ball League player with Detroit Lions. Theismann has gamed much more experience than Lindsey as the Argos sailed into the EFC lead with a 7-2 record. Apparently as a result of Heeling's injury, Toronto odds- makers are giving the Argo- nauts a seven-point edge over the Stampeders. Defensive halfback star Dick Thornton will be standing in the wings to back up Theismann in an emergency. But both clubs have other players hurting. Calgary run- ning back Hugh McKinnis has a pulled muscle and defensive lineman John Helton is trying to disguise a gimpy knee. Jim Stillwagon, Jim Corrigall and Joe Vijuk are among the Argos not 100 per cent fit. Cahill says he has not altered his game plan because of the absence of Keeling. "You might expect Lindsey to run more than Keeling, but I don't think the Stamps will want to take any chances." Although Duncan had little to say, Lindsey adopted an air of confidence as he predicted his performance will be better against Argonauts than it was in Montreal, where Stamps were crushed 26-11 Wednesday. "In Montreal, I was just sit- ting on the bench, enjoying the game, when was in it. This time I'll be pre- pared." Meanwhile, the Rough Ridg- ers plan a more pronounced running game and a strong over-all offence against the Ti- ger-Cats. Terry Swarn v.ill be in the offensive backfield for his sec- ond game. He'll be working on reverses and sweeps and be eli- gible to catch passes.
