Game Notes

Game Summary

Calgary traveled to Taylor Field this week to complete the back-end of a home and home series that saw Calgary pick-up its first win during Week #4. Looking to extend that streak in Regina, Calgary found itself in a defensive battle that saw no scoring in the opening quarter. Saskatchewan K Paul McCallum was the first on the board with a single, after his 42-yard FG attempt was wide. Calgary tied the score during the next drive when RB Profail Grier conceded a single off Calgary P Anthony Martino’s kick. An interception by Calgary CB Eddie Davis led to a 41-yard TD pass to WR Travis Moore from Stamp’s QB Jeff Garcia. K Mark McLoughlin’s extra point was good. Saskatchewan rallied as RB Shawn Daniels busted through from 1-yard out tying the game at eight after McCallum’s convert was good. Rider QB Reggie Slack also scored a rushing TD, when he scampered to the end zone from 36-yards away. McCallum made the score 15-8 for the Green ’Riders at the half with his extra point. The Stamps controlled all scoring in the third stanza of play as McLoughlin’s FG was wide scoring the single point. This was followed up by a 8-yard TD pass from Garcia to WR Fred Bailey with a little over one minute remaining in the quarter to staking the visitors to a slim 1-point lead after McLoughlin’s convert. Saskatchewan rebounded in the fourth quarter as McCallum hit on an impressive 52-yard FG. McLoughlin responded with a FG of his own giving Calgary a 1-point lead. A fumble recovery deep in Calgary territory by Saskatchewan DB Dale Joseph proved to be the turning point in the game, as it lead to a 29-yard FG by McCallum giving the ’Riders a hard fought 2 point win.
