The Calgary Stampeders, on the strength of 24 1st quarter points, won their 8th straight game of the 1993 season with a 31-12 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, last Friday night in front of 19,402 fans at Ivor Wynne Stadium. It didn’t take long for the Stampeder offensive machine to get rolling as quarterback Doug Flutie hooked up with Will Moore for a 16-yard TD 1:29 into the opening frame. This pair hooked up again 1:59 later this time Moore grabbed an 8-yard Flutie pass, set up by a Greg Knox blocked Paul Osbaldiston punt, for his second major of the game. The Stampeders quickly put the game out of reach as Derrick Crawford returned an Osbaldiston punt at his own 40-yard line and ran it back 70 yards for the TD. The Tiger-Cats finally got on the board after a Mark McLoughlin FG as Bruce Perkins plunged in from 1-yard out on the final play of the quarter to make the score 24-6 after the 1st frame. Osbaldiston added the convert on the first play of the 2nd quarter to narrowing the margin to 17. McLoughlin, who booted 3 FGs on the night, added his second of the contest, this one coming from 23 yards out. Osbaldiston then connected from 28 yards out and the Stamps conceded a safety to make the score 27-12 at the half. A Tony Martino 76-yard single accounted for all of the 3rd quarter scoring and McLoughlin added his 3rd FG of the game, this one from 20 yards out to make the final score 31-12 in favour of the Stamps.
