CALGARY - Anthony Parker has scored a lot of touchdowns at McMahon Stadium.

But the one he snagged Saturday night was his first wearing a horse on his helmet.

Parker, who starred for four seasons with the Calgary Dinos, remembers the last time he visited the endzone back in 2010.

“Yeah, the last one I scored here was in a playoff game against St. Mary’s,” he said. “It was before we headed out to the Vanier (Cup) that year.

“I gotta say this one felt better, just because of the magnitude of this game, and the fact that we didn’t have control at that point.”

Parker’s touchdown — he scored one earlier this season in Winnipeg — gave the Calgary Stampeders a 10-3 lead in the second quarter of an eventual 29-25 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
