Game Summary

For the Riders, this game was pivotal in their attempt to keep their playoff hopes alive. They had put together two consecutive wins before dropping a close one on the final play of the game against the Tiger-Cats just last week. The Stampeders entered this game on a three game losing streak. With both teams hungry for a win you knew it would be a heated battle. Ottawa jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead with the help of K Wayne Lammle’s foot. Lammle booted a 67 yard punting single at 4:23 and then added a 55 yard FG at 13:39. Ottawa kept their momentum rolling in the second quarter and at 2:32 QB David Archer found WR Robert Gordon alone in the end zone from 6 yards out. The Lammle convert put the Riders up by 11. The Stamps however, wasted no time in getting back into the ball game as QB Jeff Garcia and SB Dave Sapunjis connected for a 37 yard receiving TD just 48 seconds following the Ottawa TD. K Tony Martino, who was filling in for injured K Mark McLoughlin, added the convert cutting the Ottawa lead to 4. Lammle added another single at 11:50 to increase the lead to 5 but with just 37 seconds left in the half, Garcia hooked up with SB Allen Pitts for a 5 yard TD strike. The Martino convert rounded out the first half scoring as the Stamps came back from an 11 point deficit and take a 16-14 lead into the locker room. Lammle trimmed the lead to one with a 74 yard punting single and then regained the lead with a 47 yard FG. On the final play of the third quarter, the Stamps take the lead once again when RB Kelvin Anderson rambled in from 4 yards away for the major score. The ensuing Martino convert put the Stamps up by 5 after three periods of play. The two kickers accounted for all of the fourth quarter scoring, Lammle with a 49 yard single off a missed FG at 3:34 and Martino a 22 yard FG at 14:01 giving Calgary a 24-17 win.
