    GAME RECAP
    ARGOS SNAP LOSING STREAK WITH HOME WIN OVER REDBLACKS
    CFL.CA STAFF



    TORONTO — McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw a pair of touchdowns and S.J. Green racked up 170 receiving yards to lead the Toronto Argonauts past the Ottawa REDBLACKS with a 28-21 home win on Friday night. The Argos snapped a three-game losing streak and improved their record to 3-12 with their victory under new general manager Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons.


    Both teams traded field goals in the first quarter before a pair of touchdown drives put Toronto on top in the second quarter. The REDBLACKS recovered a surprise onside kick to start the second half, and they cut into the lead with Will Arndt’s first career touchdown pass.


    The Argos answered back when an amazing 42-yard catch from Green set up Bethel-Thompson’s second touchdown connection to Armanti Edwards. Toronto further extended the lead with another field goal, but a late touchdown pass from Arndt to Dominique Rhymes made it a 10-point game with under three minutes to play.


    Ottawa recovered another onside kick to set up a 50-yard field goal from Lewis Ward, but Tobi Antigha’s second interception of the game sealed the victory for Toronto.


    Green reached a major CFL milestone by surpassing 10,000 receiving yards, and he also recorded his 700th career reception. The 34-year-old receiver gained 107 yards in the first half and finished with 170 yards on 10 catches.


    James Wilder Jr. gained 82 rushing yards on 15 carries.


    The REDBLACKS took an early lead on their opening drive with a 47-yard field goal from Ward. Receiver R.J. Harris had the biggest play of the drive with a 14-yard catch-and-run that brought the ball across midfield.


    Toronto’s offence responded by moving the ball into Ottawa territory. The Argos were on their way to adding points until REDBLACKS linebacker Kevin Brown stripped the ball from fullback Declan Cross. Defensive back Corey Tindal recovered the fumble for Ottawa to shut down the promising drive.


    But the Argos prevented Ottawa from converting the turnover into points, and they added a field goal of their own on their next drive. Green gained 40 yards on a pair of catches to help set up a 19-yard field goal from Tyler Crapigna, making it a tie game entering the second quarter.


    Toronto came up with a turnover on the final play of the opening quarter when defensive back Trumaine Washington picked off an errant throw from Arndt.


    A costly defensive pass interference penalty called against Ottawa placed the ball at the one-yard line later in the quarter. Green drew the penalty while being covered in the end zone by defensive back Sherrod Baltimore, and the penalty led to a rushing touchdown from James Franklin on a quarterback sneak. Crapigna added the extra point to give the Argos a 10-3 lead.


    After forcing another punt on defence, the Argos proceeded to move the ball down the field on their best drive of the opening half. Bethel-Thompson got the drive going with a big completion to Green for 19 yards, and Wilder followed it up by moving the chains on a tough 13-yard run.


    Bethel-Thompson capped off the eight-play, 72-yard drive with a 15-yard touchdown strike to Edwards in the back of the end zone, and Crapigna kicked the extra point to put Toronto up 17-3 entering half-time.


    The REDBLACKS recovered a surprise onside kick to start the second half, catching the Argos off guard. Arndt followed it up with a 14-yard pass to Harris and a 14-yard pass to Brad Sinopoli.


    Running back Brendan Gillanders moved the ball further into Toronto territory by cutting through the defence on an 18-yard catch-and-run, and Arndt finished the drive off with an eight-yard touchdown toss to Harris. Ward booted the convert to make it a seven-point game.


    Green came up with an amazing grab on the ensuing Argos drive, diving and stretching out to make his 700th career catch on a 42-yard bomb from Bethel-Thompson. Bethel-Thompson followed the big gain up with a 10-yard touchdown strike to Edwards on the next play, and Crapigna added the convert to put Toronto up 24-10 with under ten minutes to go in the third quarter.


    Toronto recorded its second turnover of the game when Antigha read Arndt’s eyes and picked off the young quarterback. Antigha rumbled down the field for 45 yards before being tackled by Arndt, and the turnover led to a 33-yard field goal from Crapigna.


    Brown came up with another turnover for Ottawa when he picked off Bethel-Thompson in the end zone early in the fourth quarter, but the REDBLACKS’ offence was unable to get anything going after the pick.


    The REDBLACKS added a single point to their total when Ward missed a 47-yard field goal wide to the right, but the Argos added a single when a dead ball was declared after a 51-yard punt from Ronnie Pfeffer.


    Ottawa made things interesting with a late scoring drive that saw Arndt throw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Rhymes. The REDBLACKS then recovered their second onside kick to set up a 50-yard field goal from Ward, making it a 28-21 game with under two minutes remaining.


    Week 19 will see the Toronto Argonauts travel to take on the Montreal Alouettes next Friday at 7:00 p.m. EDT., while the Ottawa REDBLACKS will face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on the road the following Saturday at 4:00 p.m. EDT.

    GAME RECAP
    STAMPS EDGE RIDERS TO GRAB TOP SPOT IN WEST
    CFL.CA STAFF



    CALGARY — Bo Levi Mitchell threw for 298 yards and two touchdown passes to help lift the Calgary Stampeders over the Saskatchewan Roughriders with a 30-28 home win on Friday night. The Stamps improved their record to 10-5, matching the Riders in the battle to finish first in the West.


    A field goal and a fumble recovery touchdown on a kickoff gave Calgary an early lead, but the Riders responded on defence later in the first quarter with a pick-six from Nick Marshall.


    Saskatchewan took the lead in the second quarter after Cody Fajardo led an 84-yard touchdown drive, but the Stamps quickly regained the lead with a touchdown drive of their own that saw Bo Levi Mitchell find Hergy Mayala in the end zone. Fajardo led the Riders to a field goal just before half-time, cutting Calgary’s lead down to just two points.


    The Stamps extended their lead in the third quarter with Mitchell’s second touchdown pass to Mayala, but Saskatchewan made it a one-possession game in the fourth quarter on a 42-yard field goal from Lauther.


    The Riders made it a two-point game with under three minutes to play after Fajardo threw a 34-yard touchdown pass to William Powell, but Mayala helped seal the victory with a late first down gain.


    The Riders got on the board first when a booming 55-yard punt from Jon Ryan went out of the end zone for a single point, but the Stamps responded on the following drive with a 47-yard field goal from Rene Paredes. Mitchell helped set up the field goal by moving the chains with three straight completions to three different receivers.


    Calgary’s ensuing kickoff was fumbled on the return by Marcus Thigpen, and Jamari Gilbert recovered the ball for Calgary before returning the fumble 28 yards for a touchdown. Paredes added the extra point to give the Stamps an early nine-point lead.


    But Saskatchewan stepped up on defence to cut into the lead later in the quarter, as Marshall quickly shut down a Stamps drive by picking off Mitchell and returning it all the way to the end zone for a 62-yard touchdown. Lauther added the extra point to make it a 10-8 game.


    Paredes made a 45-yard field goal to extend Calgary’s lead to five points entering the second quarter.


    After both defences forced punts, Fajardo proceeded to lead the Riders on their best drive of the opening half. The 27-year-old quarterback engineered a 15-play, 84-yard scoring drive that consumed nine minutes off the clock. Fajardo completed six passes on the drive to help set up a three-yard rushing touchdown from Powell that gave Saskatchewan the lead.


    But the Stamps swung back and regained the lead with a scoring drive of their own. Mitchell connected with receiver Eric Rogers for a 17-yard gain before following it up two plays later with an eight-yard touchdown strike to Mayala. Paredes’ extra point gave Calgary a 20-15 lead with under three minutes to go in the half.


    Royce Metchie notched an interception for Calgary to put an end to the Riders’ next drive, but Saskatchewan forced a punt and rallied to add a 12-yard field goal from Lauther to finish the half.


    Calgary extended its lead in the third quarter with another touchdown connection between Mitchell and Mayala. Mayala hauled in the 18-yard score after Ante Milanovic-Litre brought the ball into scoring range with 25 rushing yards on a pair of carries. Paredes added the extra point to put Calgary up 27-18.


    Saskatchewan pulled within a touchdown in the fourth quarter after Lauther made a 42-yard field goal, but Calgary extended the lead once again by matching the Riders with a 42-yard field goal from Paredes.


    Fajardo brought the Riders closer with a 34-yard touchdown strike to Powell,


    Week 19 will see the Saskatchewan Roughriders travel to take on the BC Lions next Friday at 10:00 p.m. EDT., while the Calgary Stampeders will host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers the following Saturday at 7:00 p.m. EDT.

    Quote of the Day
    “Cousins, I think every defense is going to want that guy to throw the ball. For me, that’s probably the weakest part of their offense is him. Everything else is good. They’ve got a good running game, probably one of the best in the league. They’ve got real good receivers. You just want them to pass the ball. You want Kirk Cousins to get it in his hands.”
    Eagles’ LB Zach Brown; the Eagles play Minnesota Sunday


    Saturday’s quiz
    Tony Bennett won the national title coaching Virginia LY; before coming to Virginia, Bennett went 32-22 in Pac-12 games coaching at which school?


    Friday’s quiz
    Tom Brady was drafted as a catcher in the 18th round of the 1995 baseball draft by the Montreal Expos.


    Thursday’s quiz
    Tony Eason started, was replaced at QB by Steve Grogan in New England’s first Super Bowl, a 46-10 loss to Chicago.


    *****************************


    Saturday’s List of 13: Random stuff with the weekend here……..


    13) Nationals 2, Cardinals 0— St Louis scored ten runs in the top of the first inning Wednesday, then they came home and got one hit here.


    Anibal Sanchez is the first pitcher EVER to throw 6+ innings and allow one or no hits in two playoff games.


    Mike Muchlinski was the home plate ump here; he umped Max Scherzer’s no-hitter in 2015 and also a 2013 game when Sanchez struck out 17 batters.


    12) Oregon 45, Colorado 3— Ducks allowed total of 22 points in winning their last four games against I-A opponents. Colorado went in the tank in the second half here.


    11) In six games this season, New England opponents have only had four drives (out of 72) where they ran a play in the Patriots’ red zone. New England’s offense has 25 such drives.


    10) Steelers’ QB Mason Rudolph is officially out Sunday with a concussion, meaning Devlin Hodges will get his first NFL start; Paxton Lynch was promoted from the practice squad to be the backup QB.


    Rams’ CB Aqib Talib (ribs) is out Sunday; Todd Gurley (quad) is doubtful.


    Neither of the Cowboys’ starting OT’s practiced Friday. a red flag.


    9) Washington Redskins will start Case Keenum at QB Sunday in Miami, in Bill Callahan’s first game as the interim coach. Expect Keenum to hand off a lot.


    8) Living in Denver must be weird; at 2pm Wednesday, it was 79 degrees- at 2pm Thursday, it was 24 degrees, the 15th-largest temperature drop in Denver history.


    7) MLB sources say that a player who accepts a qualifying offer this winter will get a one-year, $17.8M contract next season, down from $17.9M this year. It’s the first time the value of the qualifying offer has ever dropped from one year to the next.


    6) XFL players will earn an average of $55,000, when the new football league starts in February; by way of contrast, the minimum salary in the NFL is $495,000.


    5) From Ralph Michaels: Since 2015, home favorites in Game 1 of a baseball playoff series:
    — If a favorite of -$135 or less: 3-7
    — If a favorite of -$136 or more: 20-3


    4) Heard this yesterday and while it isn’t new news, it does raise an eyebrow; UNLV’s basketball team hasn’t been in the NCAA’s since 2013. Long time. 30 years ago, UNLV basketball was like Gonzaga is now; a huge fish in a tiny pond (Big West Conference) that more than held its own nationally. Gonzaga is in the WCC, also a fairly small pond


    3) Red Sox led the major leagues this year, winning eight (out of 45) games where they trailed by 4+ runs at some point in the game.


    Minnesota was the only team that didn’t win a game (0-35) when they trailed by 4+ runs.


    2) NFL coaches are 1-21 on pass interference challenges; NFL appeased the Saints by putting in a rule they don’t seem to want to enforce. Go figure.


    1) RIP to the outstanding actor Robert Forster, 78, who passed away Friday; I remember him most from the terrific movie Jackie Brown, where he played a bail bondsman, and also from a 2-part episode of Magnum PI, where he played an old Army buddy of Magnum. RIP, sir.

    BOMBERS TOP ALS TO KEEP PACE IN WEST
    CFL.CA STAFF



    WINNIPEG — A pick six and a big rushing performance from Andrew Harris led the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to a 35-24 home win over the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday. The Bombers notched four interceptions and snapped a three game losing streak, improving their record to 10-6 to keep pace in the West.


    Harris led the Bombers to a touchdown on their opening drive, and Winnipeg’s defence held the Als to a field goal on their first series. Special teams gave Montreal a major spark later in the first quarter when Mario Alford came through with a punt return touchdown for the second straight game.


    Winnipeg grabbed the lead back in the second quarter on a touchdown pass from Chris Streveler to Drew Wolitarsky, and the Blue and Gold led by five points heading into half-time.


    The Als retook the lead when Vernon Adams Jr. threw a 30-yard touchdown to Jake Wieneke, but three straight field goals from Justin Medlock gave Winnipeg a 24-17 lead later in the third quarter.


    Winnipeg extended the lead in the fourth quarter with a huge pick six from Nick Taylor and another Medlock field goal. Marcus Sayles’ second interception of the game sealed the victory for the Bombers.


    Harris gained 106 rushing yards in the first half and finished with a career-high 166 yards on 24 carries, bringing his league-leading rushing total to 1,261 yards.


    A slashing 14-yard run from Harris converted an early second down on the Bombers’ opening drive. Streveler followed it up with another first down gain on the ground, accelerating to the left edge of the Als’ defence for 11 yards. Harris then added a five-yard carry before capping off the drive with a 16-yard touchdown run to put Winnipeg on top.


    Montreal responded with a solid drive that saw Adams throw 21-yard strikes to both Eugene Lewis and Quan Bray, but the Bombers’ defence held strong and forced the Als to settle for a 30-yard field goal from Boris Bede.


    But the Als grabbed the lead with a bang later in the opening quarter when Alford turned on the jets and returned a punt 90 yards for a touchdown. Alford zoomed up the left sideline for the score, and Bede added the extra point to put Montreal up 10-7.


    Winnipeg regained the lead in the second quarter when Streveler led a 65-yard scoring drive that he finished off with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Wolitarsky. Streveler moved the chains three times on the drive with big throws to Kenny Lawler, Wolitarsky and Janarion Grant. Medlock kicked the convert to give the Bombers a 14-10 advantage.


    The Bombers added another point to their lead on the following kickoff when Alford was tackled in the Als’ end zone for a single.


    But frustration set in for Winnipeg just before half-time, as Streveler was picked off in the red zone by defensive back Tommie Campbell. The Bombers were marching down the field and looked poised to extend their lead before the turnover.


    Montreal retook the lead in the third quarter when Adams displayed his athleticism on a beautiful 30-yard touchdown throw to Wieneke. Adams scrambled to the left and froze defensive back Marcus Rios in his tracks before throwing an accurate strike to Wieneke. Bede kicked the convert to give Montreal a 17-15 lead.


    The Als’ lead did not last long, as Grant immediately came through with a huge 74-yard kickoff return that set up a 43-yard field goal from Medlock.


    The Bombers’ special teams followed up with another big play after their defence came up with a stop. Boris Bede was set to punt for the Als, but heavy pressure forced the punter to hold onto the ball and take a loss for a turnover on downs.


    Harris moved the ball inside the 10-yard line with a 21-yard run on the next play, but Montreal stood tall on defence and forced Winnipeg to settle for a 14-yard field goal from Medlock.


    Adams was picked off on the very first play of the next drive when his pass was tipped by Winston Rose and intercepted by Marcus Sayles. Streveler followed the turnover up one play later with a big 35-yard pass to Rasheed Bailey. Bailey beat Campbell in coverage, and the big gain set up a 42-yard field goal from Medlock that gave Winnipeg a 24-17 lead.


    Winnipeg came up with a pick six on defence in the fourth quarter, as Taylor intercepted Adams after the quarterback rolled to his right and attempted to complete a pass to Bray. Taylor returned the pick 37 yards for the score, and Medlock’s extra point gave the Bombers a 31-17 lead.


    Streveler was intercepted on the Bombers’ next possession by linebacker Boseko Lokombo, giving Montreal solid field position and a jolt of momentum. But the Bombers’ defence bailed Streveler out when Chandler Fenner picked off Adams in the end zone three plays later.


    Medlock extended Winnipeg’s lead to 17 points with a 46-yard field goal, and Sayles stepped up with his second pick in the final minutes.


    The Als made things interesting late with a 37-yard touchdown strike from Adams to Bray, but it was too little too late as Winnipeg took the win.


    Week 19 will see the Montreal Alouettes host the Toronto Argonauts next Friday at 7:00 p.m. EDT., while the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will travel to take on the Calgary Stampeders the following Saturday at 7:00 p.m. EDT.

    ESKS BEAT LIONS TO CLINCH PLAYOFF SPOT
    CFL.CA STAFF



    EDMONTON — Greg Ellingson totaled 133 receiving yards to lead the Edmonton Eskimos to a 19-6 home win over the BC Lions on Saturday night. The Esks improve to an 8-8 record while securing a playoff spot.


    An early field goal from Sean Whyte gave Edmonton the lead, and the Lions found themselves facing major adversity when starting quarterback Mike Reilly left the game with a suspected broken left wrist midway through the first quarter.


    A rushing touchdown from running back Shaquille Cooper extended the Esks’ lead in the second quarter, and Whyte’s third field goal of the game gave Edmonton a 16-3 lead heading into half-time.


    The Lions clawed their way closer in the fourth quarter with a field goal from Sergio Castillo, and T.J. Lee came up with a late interception in the end zone. But a field goal from Whyte in the final minute sealed the victory for Edmonton.


    Ellingson surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for the fifth straight season, and Ricky Collins Jr. achieved the same accomplishment for the first time in his CFL career.


    Edmonton took an early lead on a 22-yard field goal from Whyte that was set up by a 15-yard catch from Collins. The Lions suffered a major loss later in the opening quarter when Reilly was forced to leave the game with an injury after taking a hit from defensive end Kwaku Boateng. Backup Danny O’Brien took over at quarterback for BC.


    The Esks extended their lead in the second quarter on a 63-yard scoring drive that was capped off with a two-yard rushing touchdown from Cooper. Cooper carried the ball four times for 24 yards to set up his second rushing score of the season, and Whyte kicked the convert to give Edmonton a 10-point lead.


    Logan Kilgore came up with a huge throw for the Esks late in the opening half while evading pressure from defensive end Odell Willis. Kilgore scrambled to the left and made a tight 14-yard throw on the run to Ellingson to convert on second down. Ellingson followed the play up with an 18-yard grab one play later, but the drive stalled and Edmonton settled for a 49-yard field goal from Whyte.


    The Lions got on the board with under a minute to go in the half on a 20-yard field goal from Castillo. Lions leading receiver Bryan Burnham helped set up the kick with a 20-yard catch. But Edmonton managed to extend the lead once again just before half-time, as a big 40-yard catch from Ellingson put Whyte in position to make a 44-yard field goal as time expired.


    The Esks appeared to come up with a turnover on defence in the third quarter when Forrest Hightower and Nick Usher combined on a tackle to knock the ball out of Rashaun Simonise’s hands. But upon further review, it was determined that Jevon Cottoy initially recovered the fumble for BC before being ruled down by contact.


    Defence was the story for the remainder of the third quarter, and BC came up with a key goal line stand on third down to keep the Esks out of the end zone. Linebacker Kevin Haynes made the tackle on quarterback Troy Williams to force the turnover on downs.


    Running back John White got the following drive going with a 25-yard rush, and a pair of short completions from O’Brien set up a 46-yard field goal from Castillo that made the score 16-6 to start the fourth quarter.


    A 41-yard punt return from Christion Jones gave the Esks renewed momentum late in the game, but the Lions came up with a timely interception on defence when Lee picked off Kilgore in the end zone.


    But Edmonton got the ball back just three plays later when defensive back Tyquwan Glass picked off O’Brien while the quarterback attempted to complete a pass to Duron Carter on third down. Whyte then added a 21-yard field goal to seal the victory and secure Edmonton’s spot in the playoffs.


    Week 19 will see the BC Lions host the Saskatchewan Roughriders next Friday at 10:00 p.m. EDT., while the Edmonton Eskimos will get a week off before they host the Riders in Week 20.

    CFL Betting Notes - Week 19
    David Schwab


    Friday’s betting action in the CFL kicked things off in Week 18 of the regular season with Toronto getting past Ottawa 28-21 to cover as a 2 ½-point home favorite. Later that night, Calgary outlasted Saskatchewan 30-28 but the Stampeders failed to cover as 3 ½-point favorites at home.


    In the second half of games on Saturday, Winnipeg upended Montreal 35 to 24 as a four-point home favorite and Edmonton secured the final CFL playoff spot with its 19-6 victory at home against British Columbia closing as a 2 ½-point underdog.


    Friday, Oct. 18


    Toronto Argonauts (3-12 SU, 6-7-2 ATS) at Montreal Alouettes (8-7 SU, 9-6 ATS)
    Point-spread: Montreal -10 ½
    Total: 53



    Game Overview


    Toronto’s tight victory against Ottawa snapped a straight-up three-game losing streak. The Argonauts are an even 2-2-2 against the spread in their last six games. The total went OVER 48 points in Friday’s win and it has gone OVER in seven of their last nine contests. They are 2-4-1 ATS this season in seven previous road games. McLeod Bethel-Thompson connected with SJ Green 12 times in Friday’s win for 170 yards and he tossed two touchdown throws to Armanti Edwards in the winning effort.


    The Alouettes beat Toronto on the road 28-22 in late August, but they could not cover as seven-point favorites. Saturday’s loss to Winnipeg dropped Montreal to 2-3 SU in its last five games but it is 4-1 ATS during that same span. The total has gone OVER in three of the five games. This weekend’s highlights include Mario Alford’s punt return for a touchdown but quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. had one of his errant passes returned for a score. He ended the day with two touchdown throws and four interceptions.


    Betting Trends


    -- The Alouettes have won five of their last six games against Toronto at home both SU and ATS. The total has stayed UNDER in 18 of the last 23 meetings in this East Division rivalry and it has stayed UNDER in 10 of the last 13 meetings in Montreal.


    Saskatchewan Roughriders (10-5 SU, 10-5 ATS) at British Columbia (5-11 SU, 7-9 ATS)
    Point-spread: Saskatchewan -2
    Total: 47



    Game Overview


    Friday’s loss dropped Saskatchewan into a tie for first in the West Division standings. This was just its second SU loss in its last 11 games. The Roughriders have been able to cover in their last three games and the total has gone OVER in three of their last four outings. They have a 5-2 record ATS on the road their season. Cody Fajardo went 20-for-32 with 209 yards passing and one touchdown but he was burned on an interception for a score in Friday’s crucial loss. He also led the team in rushing with 67 yards on 10 carries.


    The Lions will be trying to avoid the season sweep after losing a home-and-home series against Saskatchewan both SU and ATS in late July. The total went OVER in each of those games. BC was eliminated from the postseason with Saturday’s lost and adding injury to insult is the loss of quarterback Mike Reilly with an apparent broken wrist. Danny O’Brien took his place and completed just 12 of his 23 passes for 103 yards and an interception. John White rushed for 84 yards on 11 carries in the losing effort.


    Betting Trends


    -- The Roughriders bring a five-game winning streak over the Lions both SU and ATS into Friday’s matchup. The total has gone OVER in four of the last five meetings at BC Place but overall it has stayed UNDER in 17 of the last 25 matchups.




    Saturday, Oct. 19


    Ottawa RedBlacks (3-12 SU, 5-10 ATS) at Hamilton Tiger-Cats (12-3 SU, 10-4-1 ATS)
    Point-spread: Hamilton -17
    Total: 51



    Game Overview


    The season continues to spiral downward for the RedBlacks in the midst of a SU eight-game losing streak while going 1-6 ATS in their last seven games. The total went OVER 48 points in the loss to Toronto after staying UNDER the closing line in five of Ottawa’s previous seven outings. Will Arndt got the start in Friday’s loss at quarterback and he completed 28 of his 42 passing attempts for 288 yards. He tossed two touchdown throws but he was also picked off three times. The RedBlacks gained just 59 yards running the ball on 12 rushing attempts.


    The Tiger-Cats come off a bye week with seven SU wins in their past eight games. They have covered the spread in their last four games as part of a 5-2-1 record ATS in that same span. Hamilton is 7-3-1 closing as a favorite this season and it has a 5-1-1 record ATS in seven previous home games this year. Dane Evans has started 11 games at quarterback and he has 2,923 passing yards while completing 70.5 percent of his 336 passing attempts. He has thrown 16 touchdowns against 11 interceptions.


    Betting Trends


    -- Hamilton snapped a SU five game losing streak to Ottawa earlier this season but it is 0-5 both SU and ATS in its last five home games against the RedBlacks. The total has stayed UNDER in four of the last five meetings at Tim Hortons Field.


    Winnipeg Blue Bombers (10-6 SU, 10-6 ATS) at Calgary Stampeders (10-5 SU, 5-9-1 ATS)
    Point-spread: Calgary -7
    Total: 50 ½



    Game Overview


    The Blue Bombers are just a half game off the pace in the West with a game in hand after Saturday’s win. This was just their second SU win in the last six games while going an even 3-3 ATS. The total went OVER 46 ½ points against Montreal after staying UNDER in four of their previous five games. Winnipeg got a big effort from Andrew Harris running the ball in that win with 166 yards rushing and one score on 24 carries. Quarterback Chris Streveler added another 64 yards on nine rushing attempts to go with his 174 yards passing.


    With five SU victories in their last six games, the Stampeders are closing in on another West Division title. They remain a tough team to bet on with a 2-4-1 record ATS over their last seven games. Calgary is 2-6 ATS at home this season and 1-8-1 ATS closing as a favorite. Bo Levi Mitchell completed 23 of his 29 passes Friday night for 298 yards and two scores. He completed passes to seven different players led by Reginald Begelton with six receptions for 90 yards. Two of Hergy Mayala’s five catches went for scores.


    Betting Trends


    -- Calgary has won 19 of the last 23 games against Winnipeg SU, but it lost to the Blue Bombers on the road earlier this season. The Stampeders are 16-2 SU in their last 18 home games against their division rivals. Overall, the total has stayed UNDER in four of the last six meetings.

    CFL Week 19 preview, odds, picks & predictions: Don't count out Winnipeg on the road
    Rohit Ponnaiya


    Andrew Harris and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are 7-point underdogs on the road against the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday night.


    It's Week 19 in the CFL and there are just three weeks left in the regular season. We break down the odds (provided by 10bet.com) for all the games on this weekend's schedule, highlighted by a Saturday night clash between a pair of 10-win teams in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Calgary Stampeders.


    We've got all the betting notes, analysis and predictions you need before wagering on the CFL.


    Season Betting Trends


    Favorites: 51-18 SU, 31-36-2 ATS
    Home teams: 43-26 SU, 35-32-2 ATS
    Over/Under: 32-36-1


    Week 18 Picks: 3-1
    Season to date: 29-30-2



    TORONTO ARGONAUTS AT MONTREAL ALOUETTES (-10.5, 53)


    The Alouettes might be headed to the playoffs but they've often had to play catch up in games. We faded them in the first half last week and made some money with Montreal continuing their season-long trend of playing awful in the opening half.


    Over their last nine games Montreal is 5-4 SU but has trailed at halftime in eight of those contests. They have a first-half scoring margin of minus-6.2 ppg in that span.


    These teams tangled back on August 25 and Toronto had a 16-6 lead going into halftime before Montreal came from behind to win. Take Toronto to keep things relatively close early and back them on the 1H spread.


    PICK: First Half Toronto +6.5




    SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS AT BC LIONS (+7, 47)


    Oof, the BC Lions must know exactly how Charlie Brown felt when Lucy pulled the football away at the last second. Just when it looked like things were finally starting to go the Lions' way, they lose star quarterback Mike Reilly for the rest of the season with a broken wrist. Reilly and WR Bryan Burnham were really the only bright spots for BC and Burnham will be hard-pressed to continue his success with backup Danny O'Brien throwing the ball.


    The Riders are 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS over their last 11 games and have held opponents to just 19.9 ppg over that span. Back Saskatchewan to win and cover against a deflated Lions squad.


    PICK: Saskatchewan -7




    OTTAWA REDBLACKS AT HAMILTON TIGER-CATS (-17.5, 51)


    This might be a matchup of the league's best team against the worst, as the 12-3 Ti-Cats face the 3-12 Redblacks. The Redblacks are just 1-12 in their last 13 games and have been getting stomped early. In their last six games they have a first-half scoring margin of minus-11.8 ppg, and have trailed by more than 10 points at halftime in four of them.


    Hamilton, on the other hand, has been hammering opponents early. In their last four games the Ti-Cats have a first-half scoring margin of plus-13.5 and those contests were against strong teams like Calgary, Winnipeg and Edmonton. A 17.5-point spread is tough to swallow but taking Hamilton on the first half spread seems like a more reasonable wager.


    PICK: First Half Hamilton -10




    WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS AT CALGARY STAMPEDERS (-7, 50.5)


    Winnipeg snapped a three-game losing streak with a big win against the Als last week. The Blue Bombers are 10-6 but three of those defeats were by two or fewer points. The Stamps are 10-5 but only four of those victories came by more than seven points.


    Seven points is quite simply too much to spot a Bombers team that is second-best in the league in both points scored and points allowed. With Calgary just 2-6 ATS at home this season (and both of those ATS wins coming against the Eskimos), back the road 'dogs on the spread.


    PICK: Winnipeg +7

    GAME RECAP
    ALS SURVIVE ARGOS’ COMEBACK ATTEMPT TO CLAIM NINTH WIN
    CFL.CA STAFF

    MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes scored a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns and survived a late comeback attempt to claim a 27-24 home win over the Toronto Argonauts on Friday night. The playoff-bound Als recorded their 300th win in franchise history, improving to a 9-7 record with two games remaining in the regular season.


    Vernon Adams Jr. led the Als to a field goal on their opening drive and a touchdown to start the second quarter. Both teams traded field goals later in the half, giving Montreal a 13-3 lead entering the third quarter.


    The Argos gained ground in the third quarter when a big catch from Chandler Worthy set up McLeod Bethel-Thompson’s first rushing touchdown of the season. Toronto grabbed the lead later in the third when Bethel-Thompson engineered an 83-yard drive that he capped off with a touchdown pass to S.J. Green.


    The Als regained the lead in the fourth quarter on a quick scoring drive that saw Jeremiah Johnson reach the end zone on a 45-yard catch-and-run, and Montreal extended the lead on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Adams to Quan Bray. Bethel-Thompson drove the Argos down the field for a touchdown in the final two minutes to make it a three-point game, but the comeback attempt fell short when a 51-yard field goal attempt from Tyler Crapigna missed as time expired.


    Als running back William Stanback made his return from injury and reached the 1,000 yard rushing milestone for the first time in his career. Stanback is now second in the league with 1,003 rushing yards on the season, trailing only Andrew Harris of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.


    Bethel-Thompson completed 78 per cent of his passes and surpassed 300 passing yards for the ninth time this season.


    Adams converted on an early second down during the Als’ opening drive when he displayed beautiful touch on a 44-yard pass to DeVier Posey. But the drive stalled due to an offside penalty, forcing Montreal to settle for a 36-yard field goal from Boris Bede.


    Adams then led the Als to their first touchdown of the game by executing a 10-play, 92-yard drive. The Montreal quarterback moved the chains three times with his arm before finishing the drive off with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Posey. Bede added the extra point to give the Als a 10-point lead early in the second quarter.


    The Argos responded by breaking the shutout on the next drive, as Crapigna nailed a 41-yard field goal to cut into the lead. Green helped set up the field goal with an eight-yard grab that extended the drive on second down.


    A big 32-yard pass from Bethel-Thompson to Worthy gave Toronto a sudden momentum boost with just over a minute to go in the half, with Worthy stretching out to make the over-the-shoulder grab along the sideline. But a key sack later in the drive from defensive end Antonio Simmons pushed the Argos back and forced a field goal attempt, and the Als managed to block the 50-yard attempt from Crapigna to end the half.


    Worthy came up with another highlight-reel grab in the third quarter. The Argos receiver dove out and made a spectacular 29-yard catch that set up a first-and-goal situation at the one-yard line, and Bethel-Thompson punched it in on the next play for the touchdown. Crapigna knocked the extra point through to cut Montreal’s lead down to three points.


    Toronto came up with big a defensive stop, and the Argos began driving again on offence. Bethel-Thompson took advantage of a blown coverage by finding Rodney Smith down the field for a 34-yard gain, and the quarterback followed it up with a 14-yard pass to Green.


    Bethel-Thompson capped the drive off with a quick five-yard touchdown strike to Green on a slant route, and Crapigna’s extra point gave the Argos a 17-13 lead with three minutes to go in the third.


    Montreal pass rusher JaVon Rolland-Jones came up with a huge sack that forced a punt in the fourth quarter. The Als’ offence did not waste time capitalizing on the opportunity, driving down the field to regain the lead in just two plays. Adams connected with Jake Wieneke for a 21-yard gain, and Johnson followed it up with a 45-yard catch-and-run touchdown on the next play. Bede kicked the extra point to give Montreal a three-point lead.


    After coming up with another stop on defence, the Als proceeded to storm down the field with hopes of an insurance score. Adams extended the drive on second down with an electric 28-yard run, and he threw an 18-yard touchdown pass across the middle of the end zone to Bray on the next play. Bede kicked the convert to make it a 10-point game with just under four minutes remaining.


    Toronto kept things interesting with a late drive in the final minutes. Bethel-Thompson led the Argos down the field on a quick 60-yard drive that ended with a two-yard touchdown toss to Worthy. Crapigna made the extra point to cut Montreal’s lead back down to just three points with just over a minute to go. But the Argos’ comeback hopes faded on the final drive of the game when Crapigna’s 51-yard field goal try fell short.


    Both teams will be in action again next Saturday, with the Montreal Alouettes hosting the East-leading Hamilton Tiger-Cats at 1:00 p.m. EDT. and the Toronto Argonauts hosting the Ottawa REDBLACKS at 4:00 p.m. EDT.

    RIDERS’ QUEST FOR FIRST CONTINUES WITH WIN OVER LIONS
    CFL.CA STAFF



    VANCOUVER — The Saskatchewan Roughriders walked out of BC Place on Friday night with their 11th win of the season, defeating the BC Lions 27-19.


    The win puts the Riders (11-5) atop the West Division for now, with the division looking to be going right down to the wire when Week 21 rolls around.


    For BC (5-12), this week brought the opportunity for Danny O’Brien to step in for his first career start since entering the league back in 2014 with the Ottawa REDBLACKS.


    Saskatchewan’s phenom quarterback Cody Fajardo completed 21 of his 26 passing attempts on the night, putting 224 yards through the air and a touchdown.


    Defensively, the Roughriders put up the Green Wall on Friday night: hauling down Lions’ quarterbacks six times, forcing two fumbles, and capping the victory off with an interception.


    In the first half, it initially got underway as a game for the kickers.


    Sergio Castillo took care of breaking the ice off the scoreboard, putting the Lions ahead with a 50-yard field goal in the closing minutes of the opening quarter.


    While the offence for either team continued to get their pistons churning, Brett Lauther evened the scoring up quickly in the second period, notching a 52-yard field goal.


    Castillo responded with a 43 and 30-yarder, reclaiming the lead for BC.


    Fajardo and the Riders’ offence finally were able to piece together a drive, capping it off with a 1-yard touchdown by William Powell. A missed convert would leave the game tied at 9-9.


    On the ensuing drive for the Lions, Danny O’Brien got caught behind the line by Mike Edem, who happened to knock the ball loose as well. By the time the ball was finally recovered it had travelled 27 yards towards the Riders endzone as Saskatchewan forced the turnover, ultimately resulting in Lauther’s second field goal of the game.


    The Roughriders took a 12-9 lead into the dressing room for halftime.


    In the third quarter, Saskatchewan started on offence from their 25-yard line. From there, they marched downfield to score a major in nine plays, a play in which Fajardo called a late audible to find Kyran Moore over the middle of the endzone for the score.


    With just over four minutes remaining in the third quarter, Grant Kraemer came in for relief of Danny O’Brien.


    Kraemer wouldn’t fare much better, however. The former Drake University pivot was sacked twice before going down with a lower-body injury.


    As the fourth quarter got underway, Lauther would tack on to Saskatchewan’s lead, hitting his third (28 yards) and fourth (22 yards) field goals of the night.


    O’Brien returned to the Lions huddle with nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.


    Castillo added another field goal to his stat line before the night was done. Bryan Burnham also not only added to his season-long highlight reel but also tacked on a receiving touchdown — his tenth of the season.


    Hoping for a spark of a comeback, the Lions regained possession with less than a minute to play. With time working against them, O’Brien had no other choice but to heave the ball deep downfield, ending up in the hands of Saskatchewan’s Elie Bouka.


    As the Roughriders push to finish first in the West Division, they’ll make a trip to Edmonton for the conclusion to Week 20’s schedule. As for the Lions, they’ll spend Week 20 on their final bye week of the season before wrapping up their season in Week 21 against the Calgary Stampeders.

    “It was insulting, for sure. Once I got cut [on Aug. 31], I could have just come here [to the Jets] and not stayed there and re-sign. When they re-signed me, I was thinking that I was good. Two weeks later, I was gone. So, it’s like, ‘Why did I waste my time?’ Because at the end of the day, it was kind of a waste of time for me.”

    *****************************


    Saturday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….


    13) I’m wondering how many fantasy football leagues there are in this country, with one team in every league now scrambling for a new QB with Patrick Mahomes out for at least three weeks.


    Mahomes got relatively good news, with no ligament damage on top of his dislocated kneecap, but he’ll be wearing a brace when he returns to action.


    Matt Moore (15-15 as a starter in 11 seasons) is the Chiefs’ new #1 QB; they still have to sign a backup for him.


    12) 50 years ago this week, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar made his NBA debut with the Milwaukee Bucks, who had gone 27-55 the year before, their first season in the NBA.


    Milwaukee went 56-26 in Jabbar’s rookie year, losing the Eastern Conference final, then went 66-16 the next year and won their only NBA title. Bucks averaged 60.8 wins in Jabbar’s first five seasons; they traded him to the Lakers after a 38-44 season in 1974-75.


    Here’s the thing; I think Kareem is the best basketball player ever, but because he played before ESPN existed and because he drifted out of the public eye after he retired, people forget just how dominant a player he was, in high school, college and the NBA.


    11) Braves’ star 1B Freddie Freeman had elbow surgery this week, with three fragments taken out of his sore arm, explaining why he struggled late in the season.


    10) New York 4, Houston 1— This was the first game in postseason history where both teams scored in the first inning but then didn’t score the rest of the game.


    James Paxton allowed 31 first inning runs this year, the most in the majors.


    9) Sacramento Kings offered guard Buddy Hield $90M for four years, which he termed “an insult”; turns out he would be less insulted with a 4-year, $110M offer.


    The NBA is really profitable, so they won’t miss my $200, but I’m going to pass on the NBA package on DirecTV this season, for the first time in a long time.


    I mean, if Hield in indeed insulted by making $22.5M a year, so be it, but keep it to yourself; that kind of attitude, plus guys taking games off when they’re not hurt, turns my stomach.


    If that makes me the old man bitching at kids on his lawn, then thats fine, too.


    8) Over the last 20 years, former NFL running back Warrick Dunn has donated 173 homes nationwide, thanks to Warrick Dunn Charities as part of its “Home for the Holidays” initiative, which helps single-parent families achieve homeownership. Good for him.


    7) Marshall 36, Florida Atlantic 31— Thundering Herd scored TD with 0:36 left to win a wild game in Boca Raton; Knox had 22 carries for 190 yards, 2 TD’s for 4-3 Marshall.


    6) Not sure why FOX has John Smoltz as its #1 baseball analyst: he seems to like golf better than baseball. I have four guys here who would be a better choice than Smoltz:
    — Ron Darling— Mets’ TV analyst has postseason TV experience.
    — Mark Sweeney— Padres’ TV analyst. Younger guy, very smart.
    — David Cone— Bronx TV analyst, is smart/funny and would be great on a national stage.
    — Bob Brenly— I’m partial to former managers as TV analysts; Brenly is very good.


    5) Zion Williamson (knee) has a sore knee, is expected to miss the first few weeks of the NBA season, which has to scare the hell out of Pelicans’ coaches/fans. Williamson sat out a decent amount of Duke’s season LY, which is a bright red flag.


    4) Why do some college football teams put the players’ numbers on the side of their helmets? Looks dumb; much prefer having the team’s logo on both sides of the helmet, number on back.


    3) Turns out that CC Sabathia threw the last three pitches of his career with a partially separated left shoulder. 251 regular season wins, 10 in playoffs; Sabathia will be in Cooperstown someday.


    2) Luxor Casino in Las Vegas extended comedian Carrot Top’s contract for five years, good news for people who like to laugh while on vacation. Carrot Top’s dad worked for NASA, he was an actual rocket scientist.


    1) Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook came in the mail Friday, always a good day; this means that college basketball is right around the corner.

    GAME RECAP
    TICATS BEAT REDBLACKS FOR RECORD-SETTING 13TH WIN
    CFL.CA STAFF



    HAMILTON — Dane Evans threw for a career-high 452 yards to help lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to a 33-12 home win over the Ottawa REDBLACKS on Saturday. The playoff-bound Tabbies set a franchise record by winning 13 regular season games for the first time in franchise history.


    A Jalin Marshall touchdown run was the only major in a first half that saw both teams combine for five field goals. The Ticats entered the second half with a narrow three-point lead, but a short touchdown run from quarterback David Watford midway through the third quarter helped put Hamilton up 19-9.


    The REDBLACKS made it a one-possession game with another field goal from Lewis Ward, but the Ticats stormed back to extend their lead near the end of the third when Brandon Banks turned on the jets for a 60-yard catch-and-run touchdown. A 50-yard catch from Marshall set up Lirim Hajrullahu’s third field goal of the game, and Hajrullahu added another field goal with a minute remaining to seal the victory.


    Banks finished the game with 116 yards on seven catches, bringing his season total to 1,349 while surpassing 100 regular season receptions for the first time in his career.


    Tyrell Sutton racked up 149 total yards on 13 carries and four catches. Hamilton’s defence forced nine punts while also notching three sacks and a fumble recovery.


    Defence dominated much of the opening quarter, and the REDBLACKS notched a turnover when defensive back De’Chavon Hayes picked off Dane Evans for his third interception of the season. But Hamilton’s defence stood strong and forced Ottawa to settle for a 40-yard field goal from Ward to take the early lead.


    The Ticats’ offence bounced back from the turnover by responding with a solid drive. Sutton got things started by making a 40-yard over-the-shoulder grab down the middle of the field to convert on second down. Marshall then set the offence up with first-and-goal by gaining 14 yards on a catch-and-run, and he finished the drive off with a five-yard touchdown run. Bralon Addison took the snap in the wildcat formation before handing it off to Marshall for the score.


    Hamilton opted to go for the two-point conversion, but Ottawa’s defensive front prevented Sutton from scoring on the short run.


    Momentum remained on the Ticats side when they recovered a surprise onside kick on the next play, catching Ottawa off guard. Jumal Rolle recovered the kick for Hamilton, and an 18-yard pass from Evans to Jaelon Acklin brought the ball just outside the red zone. But a costly holding penalty led to a second-and-long scenario, and the Ticats were unable to secure a fresh set of downs. Hajrullahu kicked a 33-yard field goal to give Hamilton a 9-3 lead with 12 minutes to play in the opening half.


    The REDBLACKS came up with a big special teams play of their own later in the quarter when Anthony Cioffi broke through to block a Hajrullahu punt. Marco Dubois recovered the ball for Ottawa, and it led to a 27-yard field goal from Ward after Hamilton’s defence shut the door in the red zone.


    Ward made a spectacular kick to tie the game up with a minute to go in the half, as he came through with a 56-yard field goal after Stefan Logan helped set it up with a big punt return. But Hamilton quickly regained the lead before half-time. Evans completed back-to-back throws to Banks and Marshall for first down gains, and Hajrullahu made the 38-yard field goal to put the Ticats up 12-9 at the half.


    The REDBLACKS appeared to come up with a momentum-shifting interception in the end zone midway through the third quarter, but Sherrod Baltimore’s pick was overturned after a review determined there was pass interference on the play. Hamilton capitalized on the second opportunity with a one-yard touchdown run from Watford on the very next play, and Hajrullahu kicked the convert to give the Ticats a 10-point lead.


    Ottawa made it a one-possession game on a 43-yard field goal from Ward, but the Ticats answered back just three plays later. Evans threw a perfect pass over the outstretched arm of defensive back Corey Tindal, and Banks made the over-the-shoulder catch before speeding his way to the end zone for a 60-yard touchdown. Hajrullahu’s extra point gave the Ticats a 26-12 lead entering the fourth quarter.


    The Ticats remained aggressive on offence, and Evans stepped up with one of his biggest throws when he connected with Addison for a 48-yard gain. Addison used his speed to beat Cioffi in coverage while setting the offence up inside the 20-yard line. The REDBLACKS stood tall on defence to force a field goal try, but the 18-yard attempt from Hajrullahu went wide to the left and out of bounds for a single point.


    Hamilton’s defence forced another punt, and Marshall emerged once again to impact the game with a 50-yard catch to set up a 24-yard field goal from Hajrullahu. The Ticats added a 36-yard field goal with only a minute left on the clock to seal the victory.


    Week 20 will see the East-leading Hamilton Tiger-Cats travel to take on the playoff-bound Montreal Alouettes next Saturday at 1:00 p.m. EDT., while the Ottawa REDBLACKS will face the Toronto Argonauts on the road later that day at 4:00 p.m. EDT.

    GAME RECAP
    STAMPS EDGE BOMBERS TO MOVE BACK INTO FIRST PLACE
    CFL.CA STAFF


    CALGARY — A three-touchdown game from Reggie Begelton led the Calgary Stampeders to a 37-33 home win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday night. The Stamps improve to an 11-5 record and are now tied with the Saskatchewan Roughriders for first place in the West.


    Calgary took a first-quarter lead on a touchdown pass from Bo Levi Mitchell to Begelton, but Winnipeg grabbed the lead in the second quarter on a scoop-and-score defensive touchdown from Marcus Sayles. Winnipeg’s defence stepped up again on the next drive when Winston Rose’s league-leading ninth interception set up a 25-yard touchdown run from Lucky Whitehead.


    Mitchell responded with another touchdown pass to Begelton, but Winnipeg answered back and extended the lead before half-time when Chris Streveler threw a touchdown strike to leading Bombers receiver Kenny Lawler.


    Both teams traded field goals to start the second half, and Calgary made it a tie game entering the fourth quarter when Mitchell led a touchdown drive that he followed up with a successful two-point conversion. Calgary took the lead in the fourth quarter when Mitchell threw a third touchdown strike to Begelton, and an interception from DaShaun Amos on the final play of the game ended Winnipeg’s comeback hopes.


    Mitchell threw for 337 yards while completing 22 of 33 passes. Josh Huff had a game-high 121 receiving yards on six catches for Calgary.


    Bombers running back Andrew Harris surpassed 14,000 career yards from scrimmage, while Stamps receiver Eric Rogers surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for the second time in his career.


    Streveler racked up 85 rushing yards on 15 carries, bringing his season rushing total 726.


    Calgary struck first in the opening quarter on a 41-yard field goal from Rene Paredes after Mitchell moved the ball into field goal range with a 55-yard bomb to Eric Rogers. But the Bombers responded later in the quarter when an 18-yard run from Nic Demski set up a 32-yard field goal from Justin Medlock.


    Mitchell continued his strong start by connecting with rookie receiver Hergy Mayala for a 24-yard gain on the first play of the next drive. Mitchell then threw a deep 42-yard pass to Huff that set the offence up with first-and-goal, and he capped the drive off one play later with a nine-yard touchdown pass to Begelton. Richie Sindani reeled in the two-point conversion pass to give Calgary an 11-3 lead in the first quarter.


    The Bombers cut into the lead with a 34-yard field goal from Medlock, and they took the lead on a momentum-shifting defensive play. Sayles stripped the ball from running back Ante Milanovic-Litre before recovering the fumble himself and returning it 24 yards for a touchdown. Medlock added the convert to give Winnipeg a two-point lead.


    Winnipeg’s defence notched another turnover on the first play of the following drive, as Rose intercepted a pass from Mitchell that was intended for Milanovic-Litre. The turnover led to a 25-yard touchdown run from Whitehead one play later, and Medlock kicked the extra point to give the Bombers a 20-11 lead.


    The Stamps responded with an 11-play, 80-yard scoring drive that saw Mitchell cap it off with a perfectly thrown 21-yard touchdown strike to Begelton against double coverage. Mitchell then completed the ensuing two-point conversion pass to Rogers to make it a one-point game.


    But the Bombers came back to extend their lead before half-time, as Streveler threw a 34-yard touchdown strike to Lawler. Medlock’s extra point put Winnipeg up 27-19 at the half.


    Calgary’s defence notched a turnover to start the second half when Streveler’s first throw of the third quarter was intercepted by Raheem Wilson. The turnover led to a 32-yard field goal from Paredes that cut Winnipeg’s lead down to five points.


    The Bombers responded with a 41-yard field goal from Medlock, but the Stamps made it a two-point game when Mitchell quickly engineered another scoring drive that ended with a three-yard rushing touchdown from Milanovic-Litre. Mitchell then completed a pass to Huff for the two-point conversion, tying the game at 30 points apiece.


    Winnipeg took the lead early in the fourth quarter on a 33-yard field goal from Medlock, but the Stamps regained the lead when Mitchell connected with Begelton for their third touchdown of the game. Begelton’s 17-yard score was set up by a 41-yard catch-and-run from Huff, and Paredes kicked the convert to give Calgary a 37-33 lead.


    Streveler briefly exited the game with an apparent lower body injury midway through the fourth quarter after being tackled by linebacker Wynton McManis, but he returned later in the quarter.


    A roughing the passer penalty against Winnipeg extended a Stamps drive with four minutes to play, and the penalty became even costlier when Calgary was charged a timeout after unsuccessfully challenging the call. But a big sack on second down from defensive tackle Jake Thomas forced a punt and gave the Bombers’ offence another opportunity.


    The Stamps came up with a sack of their own to force a turnover on downs with under two minutes, but Winnipeg was given extra life when a 48-yard field goal attempt from Paredes went wide to the left. Whitehead returned the missed kick 36 yards, but the Bombers were unable to complete the comeback as Amos intercepted a Streveler pass in the final seconds.


    Both teams will meet again next week when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers host the Calgary Stampeders next Friday at 8:30 p.m. EDT.
