" . ;. 'sVv'" i 1 - 13 r r By IAN MacLAINE TORONTO (CP) Con-sidered expendable by Hamilton Tiger-Cats a year ago, Harold Cooley has developed into one of the outstanding finds in Montreal Alouette't surge to the top of the Eastern Football Conference schedule. , His block of s crucial convert attempt took the pressure off the Als Saturday night in their 21-13 conquest of Toronto Argonauu just when the Montreal club was reeling under a tremendous second-half assault by the Argot.- - ' The blocked convert left the Montrealert a 14-13 edge with lest than five minutea to go in the game. WAS FREE AGENT Cooley,. a former Negro all-American at Jackson Sute (Muu.)-College in 1962. was a "terror to Argo back-fielders all night and was in on nine tackles in addition - to the blocked convert He waa picked up by coach Jim Trimble as a free agent after sitting out the 1963 season . when Ti-Cau let him go as their final cut ' Gerry Philp, a former Argo, Ted Page and George Dixon scored the Alouetts touchdowns. Gino Berretta converted all three as the Als ran up quarter leads of 7-0, 14-0 and 14-13. Jackie Parker and Ron Hatcher scored the Toronto touchdowns snd Jim Christo- . pherson converted one. Parker's six-pointer brought, his lifetime scoring total In Canadian football to 701 the first time a professional football player in Canada has reached that plateau. - Dixon put the damper on any Argonaut notions of a comeback lata in the game when be twept aroumf the right tide of the Toronto line with less than two mi utes to go. The touchdown came two plays after Billy Ray Locklin had dumped To ronto quarterback Parker on the Toronto five-yard Una and jarred the ball loose Into the waiting arms of Montreal's Chuck. Walton at tha Toronto seven..' STARTS SLUGFEST Tempers threatened to flare up on several occasions, but cooler heads kept the would-be combaunu controlled uutil -after the convert on Dixon's touchdown when Toronto's Ron Brewer started a alugfest with Rene Riopelle of the Als. Both players were banished. The Montreal offence centred once again on Vernon Cole, the cool and calculating refugee from North Texas SUte University vis Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Cole- utilised Dixon's break-away speed, fullback Dave Hoppmann't line-butting gallops and bit own serial artillery to keep Toronto's defences off balance. Dixon ran 126 yards In 17 carries for a T.65 average. Statistics' . . SImtroal Tocoata rmt downs ' . . IS St Yard ruitilnf . . S.1I . . 14 Y.rtli pawlnt SIS Paam tried, come.
