Game Notes

Game Summary

The Stamps entered this game looking to avenge their Week #15 loss at the hands of the Edmonton Eskimos, while the Tiger-Cats were looking to put their second consecutive win on the board. The Stampeders got on the board 1:21 into the game when P Tony Martino’s punt sailed into the end zone for a 79-yard punting single. The Stamps increased their lead to 3-0 when Hamilton K Paul Osbaldiston retreated into his own end zone conceding the safety touch. The games first major came at 2:14 of the second quarter when Calgary RB Kelvin Anderson punched the ball in from 2 yards out. K Mark McLoughlin’s convert attempt was successful and the Stamps were up by a 10-0 score. They added to that lead at 11:11 of the second stanza when McLoughlin’s 20‐yard FG attempt sailed through the uprights. The Stamps unveiled a little trickery on the final play of the half when FB Farell Duclair pulled up on a fake FG and found fellow FB Duane Forde in the end zone for a 4-yard TD. The McLoughlin convert was good and the Stamps took a 20-0 lead into the locker room. Martino opened the second half scoring with his second punting single 1:10 into the third quarter. This was followed 1:25 later when QB Jeff Garcia aired out a 41-yard TD pass to SB Allen Pitts. The McLoughlin convert upped the Calgary lead to 28-0. Hamilton finally got on the scoreboard at 10:56 when QB Rickey Foggie teamed up with WR Andrew Grigg for a 4-yard TD strike. The Osbaldiston convert at 11:17 rounded out the third quarter scoring with Calgary in front by a 28-7 margin. Osbaldiston opened up the fourth quarter scoring with two consecutive FGs of 37 and 57 yards respectively.
