First quarter

On the first offensive play, the Als went deep, as Anthony Calvillo had a perfect rainbow pass to Brian Bratton for a 47-yard reception.

Calvillo capped off the efficient drive with a three-yard touchdown pass to Jamel Richardson at the back of the endzone for a quick 7-0 lead.

Henry Burris got off to an awful start. His first pass, intended for Romby Bryant, was well underthrown and was picked off by Jerald Brown.

Ben Cahoon made a first-down catch to put the Als in range for a 39-yard field goal from Damon Duval, but he missed and the home side took a 8-0 lead.

Still without a first down, the Stamps finally got some life with about a minute left. On a punt formation, Wes Lysack took the snap and went straight up the middle for a first down. The fake was Calgary's first this season and it went for 12 yards.

Second quarter

Jeremaine Copeland made a 17-yard reception to get into range for a 29-yard field goal by Sandro DeAngelis, and that made it 8-3 for the home side.

The defence came up big with 11 minutes left in the frame, stuffing backup QB Adrian MacPherson and forcing a turnover on downs.

A pass interference penalty put the Stamps in position for another long DeAngelis field goal that made the score 8-6.

A Burke Dales punt single made it 8-7 with a little more than five minutes left.

Dahrran Diedrick found a huge hole for a 45-yard scamper to hit the three-minute warning and set up another three-yard TD reception by Richardson.

Another two-and-out for the Stamps offence and another Richardson touchdown catch, this one from 25 yards out, made it 22-7.

The Stamps drove down for another DeAngelis field goal and went into half-time down 22-10.

Third quarter

After two straight stalled drives, the Stamps looked to get something going on offence.

Burris pump-faked beautifully and had Nik Lewis alone along the sidelines, but it appeared the slotback lost the ball in the sun, and it fell off his back incomplete.

Tearrius George had Calvillo dropped in the endzone for a safety, but he was flagged for a horse-collar tackle.

Burris looked to be sacked by Anwar Stewart, but the pivot managed to slink away from the tackle and hit Bryant with a first-down catch. All the Stamps could manage was a punt single to make it a 22-11 deficit.

Fourth quarter

The Stamps tried the same fake punt as the first half with a direct snap to Lysack, but the Als read it and dropped him for a turnover on downs.

Lysack then got an unnecessary roughness penalty for shoving an Alouettes player to the ground.

The Als made them pay with a Calvillo touchdown pass to Andrew Hawkins.

The Stamps started moving the ball, but Burris threw a second interception to Brown to kill a drive.

The Als chewed up the clock and kicked a field goal to make it 32-11, and the Stamps gave Burris the hook for backup Drew Tate.
