Game Notes

Game Summary

The first of two meetings between the Eastern and Western ’Riders saw the visitors from Saskatchewan head home with their first win of the season. Kicker Paul McCallum put Saskatchewan on the scoreboard early with a 22 yard field goal following a 10 play, 60 yard drive. The Western ’Riders put another solid drive together on their next possession. McCallum, again, capped this drive with a 36 yard field goal. Ottawa battled back to take the lead on their next possession. Rookie SB Joseph Rogers caught a 16 yard pass from David Archer to tie up the game. Wayne Lammle’s convert gave the Eastern Riders their only lead of the game. Saskatchewan continued to count on the leg of Paul McCallum in the second quarter. McCallum’s third field goal of the game, this time from the 39-yard line, gave the green ’Riders the edge by 2. McCallum was called upon twice more in the second quarter making field goals from 31 and 16 yards out to extend Saskatchewan’s lead. At half time, Ottawa trailed 15 to 7. At 4:02 of the fourth quarter, following a scoreless third, Saskatchewan padded the margin when Robert Mimbs completed a long drive with a 2 yard run for the major. McCallum kicked the convert. Archer countered for Ottawa with his fourth touchdown pass of the season, this time over 25 yards to Robert Gordon. Lammle made the convert for Ottawa. With only 1:08 left to play, Saskatchewan running back Peter Tuipulotu put the game out of reach. His 2 yard touchdown run and McCallum’s convert put the Western ’Riders ahead 29 to 14 sealing the victory and bringing Saskatchewan’s record to 1 and 1.
