1968 GREY CUP GAME (Saturday, November 30 at Toronto - 32,655)
OTTAWA ROUGH RIDERS (10-4-2) 24, CALGARY STAMPEDERS (13-6) 21 - The Ottawa Rough Riders needed three second half touchdowns to defeat the Calgary Stampeders for their second Grey Cup title of the decade. With Ottawa leading 4-0 in the second quarter, Calgary struck for a pair of majors before halftime. Aided by a pair of pass interference calls against the Riders, Peter Liske scored on a quarterback sneak to put Calgary on the scoreboard. Terry Evanshen added to Calgary’s lead with his first of two touchdown receptions. The Riders struck back in the second half. Calgary’s Ron Stewart was tackled by Ottawa defenders on a punt attempt in the third quarter, putting the Riders on the Calgary 53. Rookie halfback Vic Washington made a spectacular 14-yard gain shortly thereafter, helping to set up Russ Jackson’s goal-line run for a touchdown. But the most significant play of the game came early in the fourth quarter. Washington took a pitchout from Jackson, dropped the ball, but retrieved it on the first bounce. He then swept left and galloped 80 yards for a touchdown. Washington ended the game with 128 yards on the ground on 13 carries. Ottawa’s air attack was in full display later in the quarter when Jackson hooked up with Margene Adkins on a 70-yard passing play. The Stampeders made a game of it late in regulation when Dick Suderman recovered Bo Scott’s fumble on the Ottawa 14. Liske connected again with Evanshen in the end zone, but it was as close as Calgary would get. The Stampeders had communications problems in the second half when their telephone line to the spotters’ booth went dead. It wasn’t fixed until there was five minutes remaining in the game. All in all, it wasn’t a great week for the Stampeders. Several of their players were struck with the flu bug after their arrival in Toronto, with star players Herm Harrison and Jerry Keeling getting the worst of it. Rudy Linterman, filling in for an injured Dave Cranmer, suffered torn ligaments to his right knee after a tackle by Jerry Campbell. Ottawa’s Don Sutherin missed three field goal attempts before being successful on a 26-yarder in the second quarter. Teammate Ken Lehmann played the entire game with a dislocated elbow. It was the second Grey Cup title for Frank Clair in Ottawa to match his two titles with Toronto.

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 28
Calgary 12, EDMONTON 7 (22407) - Without the work of the defence, which intercepted four Peter Liske passes and confined the Stampeders' 425 yards of offence largely to between the 25-yard stripes, the Eskimos might have been defeated by several TDs, as their offence managed only 57 yards rushing and 43 yards passing.
MONTREAL 23, Hamilton 21 (22000) - The fans went wild early in the fourth quarter when Dave Lewis scored a TD on a 75-yard catch and then excitedly watched as the Alouette defence held tight to preserve Montreal's second straight victory.
