Game Notes

Game Summary

At McMahon Stadium on Saturday, the Calgary Stampeders hosted the B.C. Lions in a game that saw one of the league’s premier receivers return to form in front of a crowd of 29,110. Calgary slotback Dave Sapunjis had an outstanding game as he pulled down 10 catches for 187 yards after 2 games in which he was held to a total of just 5 catches for 33 yards. Calgary hit for two touchdowns in the first quarter as WR Will Moore and WR Derrick Crawford both caught passes from QB Doug Flutie in a span of just under 3 minutes. The Moore reception was a 10-yarder while Crawford’s came from 13 yards out. Following the Calgary assault, the Lions came back and hit for 10 consecutive points to close out the first quarter and open the second on the strength of a 5-yard TD catch from QB Danny Barrett to RB Sean Millington and a 20-yard field goal from K Lui Passaglia. However, Calgary wasn’t finished, as they answered with 10 points of their own on a 1 yard TD run from Doug Flutie and a 39-yard field goal off the foot of K Mark McLoughlin. With halftime sandwiched in between, the Stamps came right back out in the second half as they opened the scoring with another FG, this one from 13 yards out. B.C. followed up with a FG when Passaglia booted a 22-yarder through the uprights to make the score 27-14 with the 4th yet to be played. The Lions looked to be on the right track as Barrett hit WR Mike Trevathan from 16 yards to bring B.C. closer, but the Stamps put the game out of reach when Flutie hit Sapunjis for an 18-yard TD and then threw a 5-yard strike to Moore, his second of the day to make the final 40-21 in favour of the Stampeders.
