Game Notes

Game Summary

There were 17,319 spectators at Hornet Field to witness the first regular-season win for the Gold Miners. Sacramento built up an early lead as QB David Archer connected with Mike Oliphant (33 yards), Carl Parker (8 yards) and Titus Dixon (90 yards), and Jim Crouch added a 37-yard FG to give the home squad a 24-0 advantage early in the 2nd quarter. The first two Miner TDs came after Saskatchewan QB Kent Austin was intercepted. The Roughriders fought back as Austin hit Jeff Fairholm with a 36-yard pass and then took the ball in himself from the 1-yard line for the TD. The teams traded FGs to end the quarter and at half-time the score read Sacramento 27, Saskatchewan 17. Dave Ridgway booted 3 FGs in the 2nd half (24, 14 and 32 yards), but Crouch connected from 34 yards out and Mike Pringle dashed 25 yards for a major to seal the win for Sacramento. Archer ended the evening good on 25-of-41 for 394 yards and 3 TDs, while Austin completed 24-of-49 for 385 yards, 3 interceptions and 1 TD.
