SPORTS The Vancouver Sun, Tuosday, August 8, 1995 03 CFL Stamps manage to survive sloppy play to top Stallions Canadian Press Mark McLoughlin kicked five field goals Sunday as Calsary Stampeders fumbled their way to a 29-15 victory over Baltimore Stallions. ; The game pitted the top teams in the CFL's North and South divisions but wasn't a display of stellar football as the teams turned the ball over nine times on the rain-soaked turf. "It was frustrating that we didn't have more points on the board, but we were still in a tight . ball game and we were doing the things we do to ;win," said Calgary quarterback Doug Flutie. "We moved the ball, we ate up the clock and we kicked a couple of f ield goals that put the game out of reach." . In games Saturday, Shreveport Pirates embar-, rassed Winnipeg Blue Bombers 65-17, while San Antonio Texans beat Memphis Mad Dogs 24-9. The Stampeders (W)) also had a 74-yard punt t L.l L-. l o :.l reiurn lor a loucnuown Dy reemt oiniui caueu back because of a penalty behind the play. . The win extended Calgary's regular-season winning streak at McMahon Stadium to 27 games and gave coach Wally Buono his 71st career victory. Buono moved to 10th place on the all-time coaching victory list. Except for singles off missed field goals from Carlos Huerta. Baltimore (5-2) scored all its points on Calgary turnovers. "We had some good moments but not enough," said Baltimore coach Don Matthews. Baltimore could have taken control of the game, but bungled the chance. Baltimore rookie Mark Orlando was all alone streaking for a touchdown behind the Calgary defence when he simply dropped the ball and Calgary recovered. 'Hie touchdown would have given Baltimore the lead and they never threatened again. In Shreveport, the Pirates stuffed the worst defeat in team history down the Blue Bombers' throats. Only six times in CFL history has a team scored more points in a game. "I'm glad I was a part of this," said linebacker Anthony Shelton, who was picked up by Shreveport after being released by Winnipeg. "I never felt sorry for them." Winnipeg dropped to 2-4 while Shreveport improved to 2-5. Martin Patton tied the CFL record for rushing touchdowns in a game, five, set in 1962 by Calgary's Earl Lunsford. Meanwhile, San Antonio improved to 4-3 with its win over Memphis, 3-4.

And Pfaff bristled at the suggestion that Bailey has dropin-d into the scene out of nowhere. "If anything, it has been very systematic," Pfaff said. "The foundation and natural talent was already there." Still, for a guy who has run the fifth-best 100 metres ever 9.91 Bailey is a mystery man, his name not keeping pace with his feet. Even shy Ben Johnson was well known on the international track circuit long before he won his world title in Home in a steroid-enhanced 9.83. That's the way I like it," Bailey said last week. "I like to keep them guessing." What is known of Bailey is that he was born 27 years ago in Manchester, Jamaica, moved to Oakville, Out., in 1981 with his fmnily, was a two-sxrt star (track and basketball) at Elizabeth Park High School in Oakville, has been plagued with injuries over the years and is a self-made busi- DONOVAN BAILEY BORN: Manchester, Jamaica.

Tournaments and Public welcome XOUPO Lammle goes east as Ottawa and Toronto swap kickers j 2 "tcoiJFsKggfs Canadian Press TORONTO The Toronto Argonauts gave Wayne Lammle the boot Monday. Toronto traded its beleagured kicker, linebacker Chris Tsangaris and .guard Mike Jovanovich to Ottawa for . kicker Terry Baker, guard Scott Dou-; glas and future considerations. "It's a good trade for both teams," said Toronto general manager Bob O'Billovich. "Baker is a proven kicker who has been in the league for several years and has been up there near the top guys. "That's one area of our football team that we're trying to get a little more consistent." Also on Monday, Ottawa sent quar- terback Shawn Moore to Winnipeg to complete last week's Sammy Garza .trade, then added rookie pivot Robert Dougherty, released by Toronto last week. O'Billovich said Baker will play Wednesday against Edmonton at Sky-Dome. Likewise, Lammle will kick Saturday when the Eskimos travel to Ottawa. Inconsistency has been Lammle's forte since becoming Toronto's full-time punter and kicker last season. His untimely dropped snaps, blocked punts and missed field goals have contributed heavily to his roller-coaster existence with the Argos and their fans, who've often made the 26-year-old Vancouver native the focal point of their displeasure. On Thursday, Lammle was booed off the field after missing a 35-yard field goal on the final play of regulation that would've given Toronto a 16-13 win over Hamilton. Instead, the Ticats won 20-16 in overtime. Yet the week before, Lammle's field goal earned Toronto a 10-7 overtime win over Memphis. And on July 22, his towering single would've forced overtime had it not been for a penalty in an 11-10 loss to Shreveport. Through six games, Lammle had connected on 9-of-14 field-goal tries (64.3 per cent) and sported a 40-yard punting average. Last year, Lammle was the CFLs low-JU est-rated full-time kicker (37- of-57 field coals) and Dunter (37.0-yard average). While Baker's field-goal per centage (9-of-15) this season isn't impressive, his punting average (42.7 yards) is second only to Baltimore's Josh Miller. Baker, 33, a native of Bridgewater, N.S., is in his ninth season and owns a Grey Cup ring (1989 with Saskatchewan). "We weren't happy with Terry's kicking," said Carney Henley, Ottawa's football operations director. "I know Wayne had his problems in Toronto, but the fact that he is young and has a very strong leg is very important to us." O'Billovich remains convinced Lammle will develop into a quality CFL kicker. However, with O'Billovich's flurry of off-season moves (quarterback Kent Austin and running back Reggie Barnes to name but two) the future is now for Toronto (2-4). "We could easily be 5-1 or 6-0," said O'Billovich, who consummated the deal this weekend while in Ottawa attending a wedding. "A lot of that was relevant to the kicking game. "It wouldn't surprise me to see Wayne go to Ottawa and become a good kicker. He's got the talent, he's just got to get himself mentally disciplined to be more consistent." Henley was thrilled to land another starting offensive lineman in Jovanovich. Last week, Ottawa picked up veteran David Black from Winnipeg.
