TURNING POINT

Just before halftime, Stamps WR Brett Ralph made a catch but then put the ball on the turf and the Blue Bombers recovered. An Edwards touchdown reception gave the home squad a 21-4 halftime lead.

WHY THE STAMPS LOST

The offence didn't get going early enough and dropped way too many passes.

CATCH OF THE GAME

On a low throw from Blue Bombers QB Stefan LeFors, WR Terrence Edwards reached down and, with his fingertips, got the ball before it hit the turf.

HIT OF THE GAME

Blue Bombers LB Siddeeq Shabazz caught Stamps WR Ken-Yon Rambo in the tracks and delivered a hard shoulder to the chest after the 2008 CFL leading receiver caught a pass.

KEY STAT

28 -- Blue Bombers points off five Stampeders turnovers.
