Game Notes

Game Summary

This game was a battle between the two Roughriders or Rough Riders, depending how you look at it. Saskatchewan was looking to break their five game losing streak, while Ottawa had not won a game since their home opener against Winnipeg. The Green ’Riders got on the scoreboard first with an eight play scoring drive beginning at the Saskatchewan 42-yard line. QB Warren Jones completed his first five passes, including the 5 yarder to WR Donald Narcisse for the 6 points. K Dave Ridgway added the convert for another point. Five plays later, Saskatchewan DB Aaron Ruffin recovered a fumble by Ottawa QB Shawn Moore to give the Roughriders possession once again. They were able to capitalize on the fumble recovery with a field goal, increasing their lead to 10-0. In the second quarter, Ridgway’s Field goal attempt hit the uprights, placing the ball on the Ottawa 25-yard line. Moore completed a 45 yard pass to WR Odessa Turner to begin Ottawa’s scoring drive. WR Ray Alexander caught a 35 yard pass and was the intended receiver for the next, but Saskatchewan was called for pass interference, moving the ball to the 1-yard line. Moore went into the end zone for the TD and K Terry Baker added the PAT. Ottawa then went ahead on a 3 yard TD run by RB Jermaine Chaney, set up on 35 yard pass by Moore to SB James Ellingson. Baker’s convert was good. With 19 seconds remaining in the quarter, Ruffin returned Baker’s kickoff 66 yards to the Ottawa 39-yard line. This set up a field goal attempt for Dave Ridgway which he made good on to end the half. Saskatchewan scored first in the third quarter on a 27 yard field goal, giving the Green ’Riders a 16-13 lead. A few minutes later Jones connected with Darren Joseph for a 68 yard touchdown. With the convert, Saskatchewan’s lead increased to 25-14. Ridgway was successful on two more field goal attempts in the fourth quarter, one from 32 yards out and the other from 8 yards. Ottawa retaliated on both those field goals by scoring two of their own, but it wasn’t enough. Saskatchewan was able to break their losing streak and are now tied with Ottawa, both with 1-5 records.
