The Calgary Stampeders, the CFL’s best team to date this year, welcomed the Sacramento Gold Miners to McMahon Stadium on Saturday and ended up giving the hometown crowd of 26,015 a performance that was entered into the record books. Calgary got off to a fast start as K Mark McLoughlin scored a single off the opening kickoff, which was then followed up by a 19-yard TD pass from QB Doug Flutie to WR Will Moore. Sacramento managed a single on a 61-yard punt by P Pete Gardere before Flutie hit SB Dave Sapunjis for a 33-yard TD and then in the 2nd quarter, with QB Steve Taylor in at quarterback, the new QB took it in himself from a yard out. Sacramento added a TD when QB David Archer hit RB Mike Pringle with a 1-yard pass to cut the Stamps’ lead to 22-8 at the half. The second half was all Calgary as McLoughlin booted 2 FGs of 28 and 33 yards and in a record-setting catch, Sapunjis made his 100th reception of the season, the first Canadian ever to do so. In the 4th quarter, Taylor hit Will Moore for his 2nd of the day from 10 yards away, and McLoughlin added another 2 FGs from 23 and 16 yards away to make the final 41-8 for the Stamps.
