1960 GREY CUP GAME AT VANCOUVER (Saturday, November 26 - 38,102)
OTTAWA ROUGH RIDERS (12-5) 16, EDMONTON ESKIMOS (14-7) 6 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats took a one-year hiatus as the Ottawa Rough Riders battled the Edmonton Eskimos in the 1960 Grey Cup. Like the previous year, the game turned out to be a defensive struggle. Ottawa took advantage of an Edmonton turnover in the fourth quarter to win their first Grey Cup title since 1951. The Eskimos run attack, which was a key to victories in the 1954, 1955 and 1956 finals, was non-existent against the Riders. Edmonton was limited to 44 rushing yards. Ottawa broke the ice on a slippery Empire Stadium field in the opening quarter when Gary Schreider booted a 16-yard field goal. Both teams traded touchdowns in the second quarter. Jackie Parker hit Jim Letcavits for a 63-yard scoring play. Schreider gambled attempting to go for an interception, only to have Letcavits grab the ball away from him and run for the big score. Less than two minutes later, Ottawa’s Russ Jackson answered back, fooling the Eskimos with a bootleg and passing to Bill Sowalski for a 32-yard touchdown. The Riders advanced 72 yards in five plays. Each team’s kicker missed their convert opportunity in the quarter. After a scoreless third quarter, the Riders capitalized on a key Edmonton turnover. Joe Bob Smith fumbled a punt on a hit by Lou Bruce on the Edmonton two-yard line, and Kaye Vaughan recovered the ball for a touchdown. It was Vaughan’s first touchdown in 14 years of football. Schreider was successful on the convert attempt. Parker ran back a kickoff 74 yards that Jim Reynolds saved from being a touchdown, a potential game saving play. The game was marred by an unfortunate incident when a mob of fans surged onto the field with 41 seconds remaining, forcing officials to halt the game. It is the only time in Grey Cup history that a game was cut short. The game proved to be the beginning of a great era for one club, and the end for the other. The Riders went on to win two more titles to close the decade; a total of five between 1960 and 1976. For the Eskimos, it was the end of the first great dynasty in franchise history. Edmonton did not return to the Grey Cup final until 1973.

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24

Ottawa 35, HAMILTON 21 - Otawa had little trouble against a Hamilton defence that sagged badly before the Riders assault and an offence that gave the ball away on five interceptions and three fumbles. Gary Schreider, Joe Kelly, Davey West, Dave Thelen and Ron Stewart scored TDs for the Riders.
Toronto 21, MONTREAL 9 (23452) - Montreal filed a protest arising from a botched convert.
