In Calgary on Sunday, the Calgary Stampeders were hoping to put a lock on their hold on 1st place in the Western Division by winning over Saskatchewan in front of 28,210 fans and so they did just that. The Stampeders opened the scoring when K Mark McLoughlin kicked a 48-yard field goal which was followed up by a 54-yard TD pass from QB Doug Flutie to WR Derrick Crawford. Saskatchewan didn’t get on the board until the 2nd quarter when QB Warren Jones hit SB Jeff Fairholm on a 9-yard TD pass which was followed up by a 40-yard field goal by K Dave Ridgway, a single by K Brent Matich and another FG from 13 yards by Ridgway. Calgary managed a 39-yard McLoughlin field goal to close out the half at 14-13 in Saskatchewan’s favour. In the 2nd half, the Roughriders got off track as Calgary scored 21 points while Saskatchewan could only manage 4. The Stamps opened the 2nd half scoring when McLoughlin hit a single from 47 yards which Saskatchewan answered when Matich kicked one of his own. Calgary then hit for a TD when CB Douglas Craft returned an interception 64 yards for the score. Saskatchewan finished off its scoring for the day when Ridgway hit from 20 yards out for another FG but McLoughlin kicked another of his own before DB Charles Anthony ran back an interception 115 yards for the TD and McLoughlin closed the scoring with his final FG of the day, a 45-yard effort to make the final 34-18 for the Stampeders, who clinched 1st place in the West on a big game by the defence.
