It was the long-awaited matchup between the top two teams in the North and South divisions. Calgary had a 25 home game winning streak and a perfect 5-0 season record on the line before heading into this game, while Baltimore had suffered only one loss to date. It was the Stallions who opened the scoring with a Carlos Huerta field goal at 1:12 into the game. It did not take long for Calgary to retaliate. At first and goal, QB Doug Flutie passed to RB Tony Stewart for the touchdown, while K Mark McLoughlin added the convert to give the Stampeders a 7-3 lead at 4:44. Baltimore then took full advantage of an intercepted pass by DB Charles Anthony, who returned the ball 48 yards to the Calgary 3-yard line. RB Mike Pringle completed the drive running the ball into the end zone for a TD. K Huerta converted, giving the Stallions a 10-7 lead at 6:34, which would conclude the scoring for the first quarter. Flutie opened the second quarter with a TD, after an interception by Baltimore DB Kareem Bacon was called off because of a Baltimore penalty for roughing the passer. McLoughlin added the point after, giving the Stamps a 14-10 lead. Two field goals, one by McLoughlin and the other by Carlos Huerta completed the first half scoring for both teams. Calgary entered the third quarter with a 17-13 advantage and increased their lead to 20-14 with a 27 yard field goal, after Huerta’s attempt from 54 yards out went wide. In the fourth quarter, the Stamps defence was able to hold off Baltimore to just one point, as Pee Wee Smith conceded the single. McLoughlin was good on two field attempts, increasing the Stampeders lead to 29-15 at 10 minutes into the quarter, which remained until the conclusion of the game. The Stamps extended their unbeaten home streak to 26 games, while the Stallions fell to 5-2, maintaining the lead in the South Division.
