Game Notes

, Last Updated: 7:46 AM ET

Top offensive Player

Calgary quarterback Henry Burris simply had a field day playing pitch-and-catch with his receivers and handing off for a change of pace. Burris completed a phenomenal 21 of 25 passes for 343 yards and three touchdowns, with no picks to lead the Stampeders to a relatively easy 46-24 victory over the Blue Bombers.

Top defensive Player

Calgary linebacker Brian Clark was dominant on the defensive side. The ex-Bomber recorded four defensive tackles, one special teams tackle, one knockdown and his interception of a Kevin Glenn pass led to a touchdown. Clark intercepted, raced 30 yards, then lateralled to defensive back Coby Rhinehart and threw the block that allowed him to take it another 21 yards for the TD that gave Calgary a 24-10 lead.

Top special team Player

Winnipeg linebacker Lamar McGriggs recorded three special teams tackles in what may have been his swan song as a Bomber.

Smack of the Game

Winnipeg linebacker Ron Ockimey absolutely rocked Stampeders receiver Martay Jenkins with a big block on a kickoff return.

Key play

Calgary defensive back Joey Boese grabbed the third interception Glenn threw yesterday at the Winnipeg 35. The Stamps then moved smartly downfield, capping off the drive with a seven-yard TD toss from Burris to Jeremaine Copeland to give Calgary an insurmountable 38-17 lead midway through the third quarter.

Highlight reel

It hardly mattered much at the time but Calgary slotback Nik Lewis made a one-handed grab, then dove into the endzone for a 26-yard TD early in the fourth quarter.
