NDG Gridders Bid For Junior Title
By Sid Priddle
The NDG Maple Leafs, hoping to regain some of the title glory which they lost last year to the Canadian junior football champion Rosemount Bombers could very well be headed in the right direction.
After winning the Junior Quebec Rugby Football Union championship for four straight years and then losing out to Rosemount Bombers last season, the Leafs, under coach Roy Chesley, will attempt to get back on the victory trail.
During their four-year reign, the Leafs failed to reach their ultimate aim, bringing the junior title back to Montreal. Rosemount, however, came through with the big one last November giving Montreal its first crown in 33 years.
Reports from the Rosemount camp this year indicate the club is short of playing material. It seems that many juveniles figure that because Rosemount is a championship club, there would be no vacancies.
Meanwhile, NDG Leafs are working nightly at Trenholme Park and judging by the club's lineup, the West-end football club could be building a powerhouse.
Most of last year's stars are expected back and this along with some promising newcomers has given NDG a bright outlook. Despite the club's loaded appearance, coach Chesley is still on the hunt for some linemen and ends.
Leafs kick off the schedule next Friday at Trenholme Park against a new entry, Verdun Braves. Game time is 8:00 p.m.
Among those returning and already signed by coach Chesley are halfback Peter McBride, about to serve his fourth and final year with the club; Len Kornack, defensive end, Dennis Oldham, halfback;Jimmy Fields, halfback; Stu Lawrence, centre; Ted Shtym, fullback and Norm Ellemo, fullback.
Lawrence is also a three-year veteran with the Leafs and is considered one of the best centres in the junior league. Shtym will start his second season with the Leafs, the 6', 200 pound fullback boasts plenty of speed and displayed a good deal of power smashing up the middle last season.
The Leafs are hoping that a couple of newcomers will hold the key to their line. There's Bevan Carrique, a 215-pounder and Maurice Fortin, a product of the Regina Rams. Fortin is also a tackle and stands 6' 1" and tips the scales at 210 pounds.
