Saskatchewan Roughriders were still looking for their first win of the season. San Antonio, with a victory over Saskatchewan, had a chance to move into the deadlock with two other teams for second place in the Southern Division. Even with the pressure of the 22,000 fans in attendance, the Western ’Riders could not put together a victory. San Antonio opened the scoring in the first quarter with two field goals and didn’t look back. Kicker Roman Anderson booted the two from 50 and 20 yards giving the Texans a 6 to 0 lead. Saskatchewan kicker Dave Ridgway put the ’Riders on the board with a 21 yard field goal early in the second quarter. On the next play of the game, David Archer connected with Myron Wise for a 75 yard touchdown reception. Anderson hit the first of three converts on the day. Archer notched his second TD pass hooking up with Joe Kralik from the 6-yard line. Again, Anderson converted the play. Anderson maintained his perfect field goal kicking record for the season hitting one more before half time from 12 yards out to give the Texans a commanding 29 to 3 lead. Saskatchewan mounted a comeback in the third quarter and early fourth quarter. Ridgway booted a field goal from 52 yards and missed another try from 40 yards, but scored a single. Saskatchewan QB Warren Jones took the ball in from the 20-yard line to score the ’Riders only touchdown of the day. Jones then threw to Darren Joseph to score a two-point convert. It was all too little in the end as San Antonio started a scoring spree of their own. After breaking his perfect field goal percentage by bouncing an attempt off the cross bar from 55 yards out, Anderson made good on two more field goals from 55 and 43 yards further extending the Texans’ lead. Running back Mike Saunders ran for a touchdown late in the game from 7 yards out. Anderson’s convert made the Texans’ score 36. The ’Riders were no competition for the Texans on this day with 15 points.
