6DOrt6 I Tuesday, September 6, 1977 Editor: BRUCE PENTON Esks and Roughies close in on the Lions lav "r -1 mm aJfl EE' Hfe by THE CANADIAN PRESS Edmonton Eskimos trounced Calgary Stampeders 22-8 in Calgary and Saskatchewan Rough riders stole a 26-18 win over Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Regina in Labor Day Western Football Conference action. The wins moved the Eskimos and Roughriders into a second-place tie, two ixjints behind British Columbia Lions. Before the games, the two clubs were tied for second place with Winnipeg. The Stampeders, who now have a 1-7 record, scored the first time they got their hands on the football when Willie Burden plunged over f rotti the one-yard line. But 26,888 fans watched the boot of Eskimos' Dave Culler overcome the 7-0 first-quarter deficit. Cutler accounted for 16 of Edmonton's points, booting four field goals, three singles and one convert. In Regina it wasn't until the final quarter, with Saskatchewan leading 13-11, that the 22,616 fans saw the game come alive. Saskatchewan forged ahead with a field goal and a touchdown but Winnipeg returned with a touchdown minutes later to make the score 23-18. Quarterback Ron Lancaster marched his team in six plays from the Saskatchewan 28 to enable punter Bob Macoritti to kick a 2!vyard field goal for the final score of the game. But Winnipeg threatened up to the final seconds and it was Saskatchewan's Bill Baker who put an end to it ny-dumping Bomber quarterhack Ralph Brock on the Saskatchewan 20 as he was poised to deliver to several scattered receivers in the Rider end zone. Calgary's opening touchdown came after the Stampeders had returned an Edmonton punt and marched 51 yards in seven plays. But the Stampeders were unable to muster much offensive thrust after that. In the third quarter, Cyril McFall added one convert to complete scoring. Cutler booted field goals from 19 and 30 yards'and added a single off a missed placement attempt from 75 yards out to put the Eskimos in a 7-7 deadlock at half time. In the third quarter, another wide field.goal attempt by Cutler, this one from 45 yards, went for a single point. Then the Eskimos marched 75' yards in five plays for Mike Strickland to combine with quarterback Tom Wilkinson for a 35-yard pass and run touchdown in the third quarter. Cutler then added fieid goals of 19 and 54 yards to seal the game. . Kicking also featured strongly , in Saskatchewan's win, Macoritti kicking four fieid goals, including the one that put the game out of reach. The others were from 44, 38 and 21 yards. Joey Waters caught a 10-yard pass from Lancaster and Molly McGee ran 39 yards to provide the winners with their two touchdowns, Macoritti converted both, Winnipeg got louehdowns on a 71-yard run by Richard Crump and a 43-yard pass to Rick Koswin from Brock. Bernie Ruoff converted both and added a 27-yard field goal and a single on a missed field goal from 32 yards. Further injuries troubled the clubs. Calgary's defensive back Wayne Allison tore his Achilles tendon when hit by other players while standing by the players bench late in the second quarter. He is out for the rest of the season. The Eskimos' pass-catching end Peter Ribbins dislocated a shoulder in the first play of the third quarter. "We don't play again until Sept. 17," said Eskimo head-coach Hugh Campbell. "We need the break so bad. It will be a big plus to get some of our people healthy again." The Stampeders have 12 players injured now. As well as Allison, guard Harold Holton and running back Lou Harris were injured Labor Day in the same play. "People keep telling me that we have to overcome these injuries," said Jack Gotta, Stampeders head coach. "It's like saying have a nice garden but don't use any water or sunshine." Stafs in Scoreboard Rah, rah for Rea Rea Rennox of Scarborough, Ont., got the cheers at the victory dinner held following the Canadian 10-pin bowling championships Sunday at the Thun-derbird Bowl. Rennox topped photo hy Lante Thomson seven other women from across Canada to earn a trip, along with repeat men's winner Gerrard Duranceau of Montreal, to Bowling's World Cup in London, Eng., Dec. 5-11. t briefly Duranceau, Rennox best in the country Gerard Duranceau, who knows the pressures of championship bowling, knew what he had to do. So, the Montreal 10-pin ner went out and did it defeated Andy Kutsch of Waterloo, Onl 221-184 in a showdown game for the Canadian men's championship Sunday afternoon at Brandon's Thunder-bird Bowl. Duranceau, in winning the weekend competition, became the first person ever to repeat as the Canadian champion. The 1977 championship was the 13th annual. Duranceau finished 11th in the world last year. Rea Rennox of Scarborough, Ont., took the women's title in convincing fashion, winning over 1975 world champ Cathy Townscnd of Montreal by almost 200 pins. Duranceau and Rennox will represent Canada. in London, England, Dec. 5-11, as 35 countries send their best male and female bowlers to the Bowling World Cup. Kutsch trailed Duranceau by 45 pins going into the 21st and final game of the triple-round-robin competition, and as the draw would have it, the top two competitors went head-to-head in the final game. To win, Kutsch needed a win over Duranceau by a minimum of 16 pins. The 30-pin bonus given to the winner of each game would have given Kutsch the title. But Duranceau rallied to the occasion, firing his 221 to win comfort ably. Rennox, who outbowled former Canadian men's champions Btondie Robinsori (1969) and Ray Mitchell (1972) of Toronto in regular league play in Ontario last year, held a 105-pin margin over Townsend heading into the final match. She lost her final game 199-184 against Alberta's Arlene Graham but Townsend could only muster a 170-136 win over Joyce Campbell, representing Western Ontario, in her final bid at overtaking the tall and slender Rennox. Roger Bernier, who had the tournament's high single game with 258 against Adam Zimmerman of Estevan, finished third in the men's competition with a 4,405 total. Finishing third in Ihc women's event was Jean Gordon of Vancouver, with 4,077 247 behind Rennox. Manitoba's representatives did not fare well. Randy Kostenuk of Winnipeg was fifth among the men, while Irene Joyal, also of Winnipeg was seventh in the women's competition. Rebuffs in Scoreboord.

Box 6700, Winnipeg, Man. R3C 3A8 942-3171 Area 204 ATTENTION: G. K. Wakeham Riders take advantage of Shaw's strategy goof Bob Shaw was so impressed with his club's defensive effort in the first half of Monday night's Eastern Football Conference game that he made a bold decision to open the third quarter. Willi tne score tied 10-10, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach opted to give Ottawa the ball and the strong wind to open the second half a decision which backfired as the visiting Rough Riders put 17 points on the scoreboard during the 15-minute session en route to a 33-18 victory. Shaw said he made the decision "because i thought our defence had played well in the first half." Gerry Organ broke the 10-10 deadlock with a 26-yard field goal at 4:22 and before, the quarter ended, quarterback Tom Clements had connected on . an 2-yard. pass-and-run play with Jeff Avery for one touchdown and had run 15 yards himself for another. Organ converted both. The win gave the Rough Riders six points and lifted them out of a three-way tie for second spot in the EEC, eight points hack of unbeaten Montreal Alouettes. Toronto Argonauts, who play in Montreal tonight. and Hamilton have four points apiece, Avery said his touchdown play, in which he was 15 yards behind the Ticat defenders when he caught the ball, developed during the game. "Twice before, when we lined up with three receivers to one side, they didn't bother to1 cover us deep to the outside," said the University of Ottawa graduate. "On the TD, I was supposed to run a square-in pattern, but when nobody covered me, I just changed my pattern and ran deep, and Clements was quick enough to pick up the switch." Organ accounted for the remainder of the Riders scoring with field goals of 30, 35 and 29 yards. The 15-point effort moved him into second spot in the EFC scoring race, eight back of Montreal kicker Don Sweet. The Hamilton touchdowns came on runs of one yard by Mike Harris and six yards by Jimmy Edwards. Nick .lambrosic added the converts, as well as a 35-yard field goal. Punter Ken Clark kicked an 80-yard single for Hamilton's oiher point. , Richard Holmes was Ottawa's top rusher with 108 yards on 11 carries, while Mike Murphy ran 12 times for 62 yards as the Riders produced 216 yards along the ground. Murphy added . 75 more on six receptions, while Avery totalled 114 off four catches. The Rider defence held Hamilton to 61 yards rushing.
