CALGARY - If this was a trap game, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers forgot to set it.

The Calgary Stampeders insisted they wouldn’t take the bumbling Bombers for granted.

They didn’t.

The Horsemen kept the blinders on, focused on the job at hand and blew the Bombers out 38-11 Saturday at McMahon Stadium.

Stamps running back Jon Cornish trampled the Bombers to the tune of 208 yards. He likely would have eclipsed his own record set last season for yards rushing by a Canadian, but spent the fourth quarter watching from the sidelines.

He’s just 42 yards shy of his record of 1,457 yards.

Cornish had 175 yards from scrimmage (88 yards rushing and another 87 through the air) the first time the teams met in Winnipeg.

It was clear early on he was going to blow those numbers out of the water. Cornish rumbled for 113 yards in the opening half, surpassing Saskatchewan Roughriders star Kory Sheets for the CFL rushing lead.
