June 23, 1979 Ottawa Journal Page 27 S to qua an ex-Rider Forty-five would-be Canadian Football Leaguers departed for Edmonton today to continue their auditions for 33 roles on the 1979 Ottawa Routfh Riders. The Riders, who sport a 1-1 pre-season record, meet the defending Grey Cup champion Eskimos Sunday afternoon (4:30 EDT, CFRA). Winning is secondary on such exhibition excursions. With the start of the CFL season 17 days away, the big task for the Riders remains sorting out the good talent from the bad. Twelve footballerSjWill play themselves out of jobs as a result of Sunday's game and the final pre-season tuneup against Toronto July 1 is all about. Two Rider hopefuls bit the dust Friday and a third was deleted from the roster and placed on waivers as teams around the league pared down to the roster maximum of 45. A pair of Canadian defensive backs, Carleton University's Pat . Stoqua and University of Windsor's Al Dosant, were released outright. Stoqua, one of Ottawa's territorial exemptions, was judged too slow for the pro game. He'll return to Carleton and continue to play football and basketball while he completes his criminology degree. Also expected to return to Carleton are defensive back Gary Simpson and linebacker Torindo Panetta, cut earlier by Edmonton and British Columbia respectively. Dosant, Riders second-round selection in the college draft, was considered too inexperienced. It's no coincidence that Ottawa chose to let two rookie deep backs go the same day that University of Ottawa grad Doug Falconer arrived in town. Falconer, who started . with Calgary Stampedcrs the past two seasons, was traded to Ottawa Wednesday for place kicker J.T. Hay and has a good shot at a starting job. Import running back Alvin Maddox, who suffered a rib injury early in last Monday's game against Winnipeg, was placed on waivers. The Riders are hoping he'll be passed over by the other clubs so they can reactivate him. Four Riders didn't make today's trip. Defensive end Jim Piaskoski, defensive back Larry Brune, linebacker Carm Carteri and wide receiver Bruce Walker were left home because of injuries. Defensive tackle Mike Raines, troubled by a back injury, will see only limited action. rjfp ivhit,- from Williams Chev-Oldt Cadillac Itee Beliile Automobilts Ltd. Dilawri Chtvrolet Oldtmebils ltd.

The nine clubs had to cut down to 45 players Friday. They make their final cut to 33 including a maximum of 15 Imports four days before the July 10 season opening. Richardson, a WFC all-star tight end with Saskatchewan Rough-riders In 1976, was among 13 players dropped by Toronto Argonauts. The 30-year-old Hamilton native had been traded to Toronto during the offseason following four seasons with the Roughriders. The Argos also announced they had traded linebacker. Rick Sowieta, a former Ottawa Sooner, to Winnipeg Blue Bombers for future considerations. . Hamilton Tiger-Cats, with whom Richardson started his career in 1972, created one of the surprises of Friday's player activities by announcing they had sent wide receiver Waddeil Smith back to Edmonton Eskimos.

Also cut were running backs Jimmy Lee Rogers, Jim Duncan and Pat McNeil, slotbacks Larry Doty and Kerry O'Connor, cornerback' Larry Morrltt and safety Wes McHarg.
