WINNIPEG -- Throwing a block is more fun than scoring a touchdown to Brian Clark.

After picking off Kevin Glenn yesterday in the Calgary Stampeders' 46-24 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the linebacker had the goalline in sight.

Instead of racing in for a celebratory score, Clark turned around and pitched the ball to defensive back Coby Rhinehart and then crashed into Winnipeg QB Kevin Glenn with a heavy block.

"I was kind of shocked because I thought he would keep it," said Rhinehart. "He could have scored himself.

"I was happy he gave it to me so I gave the ball back to him afterwards so he could keep it."

The unselfish play drove a stake through the Blue Bombers and gave the Stamps a 14-point lead they would build on later.

Clark had to run 31 yards almost in circles to get to the point where he pitched it. He picked the ball around midfield, went towards the left sideline then turned around and headed across the middle, weaving in and around offensive lineman until he found some running room.

It was a similar play as the 91-yard interception return touchdown he had in Hamilton last month.

"I don't know what it is, I have vision this year for some reason," Clark said.

"I've never been able to return anything. I've never been able to cut back on people like that. I'm just running around hoping I don't get crushed."

Clark's interception was one of three the Stampeders had against Glenn before the quarterback was eventually pulled during the fourth quarter.

Safety Trey Young and halfback Joey Boese also got their hands on the ball as the Stamps held Glenn to 10-of-19 passing for 113 yards.

Backup Russ Michna came on and was able to go 8-of-12 for 124 yards and a touchdown pass to Milt Stegall.

Overall, it was a great effort from the Stamps cover players but Clark said there are things to work on as Calgary gets set to face Edmonton next Sunday in the season finale.

"We started off slow and ended slow," said Clark. "At the end, we were just trying to get finished.

"We'll watch film, make some corrections and put forth a better effort against Edmonton. We'll need to stop the run and make Ricky Ray throw the ball where we want him to, not the other way around."
