SUN THREE STARS:

1. STAMPS RB JOFFREY REYNOLDS -- Made a huge statement towards the rushing title by piling up 162 yards and overtaking the lead from Charles Roberts.

2. STAMPS SB NIK LEWIS -- The busiest receiver for quarterback Henry Burris, catching five passes for 118 yards.

3. STAMPS DL TERRENCE PATRICK -- In his first start in place of Rahim Abdullah, Patrick twice dropped Bombers RB Charles Roberts for a loss and also sacked QB Kevin Glenn.

WHY THE STAMPS WON:

On a night with ugly weather, the home side rode the back of its fabulous running back Joffrey Reynolds. Although they left plenty of points on the field, they still drove the ball with efficiency and played tight defence.

GREAT CATCH:

Stamps SB Nik Lewis had back-to-back amazing grabs in the second quarter. He leaped to catch a high pass from QB Henry Burris, then snagged a one-hander with Bombers DB Anthony Malbrough draped all over him.

HUGE HITS:

Stamps S Trey Young moved up from his position to hammer Bomber RB Charles Roberts as the diminutive back was tied up. Roberts went flying when Young stepped into him.

KEY STAT:

2.6 -- The average per rush Charles Roberts managed for the Blue Bombers against a fired-up Stampeders defence, which shut down the Bombers offence and helped Calgary's Joffrey Reynolds take over the league rushing league.

NOTABLES:

Former Stampeders C Jamie Crysdale made his broadcasting debut by doing colour on the game for CJOB radio Winnipeg. Crysdale teamed with veteran play-by-play man Bob Irving ... Stamps CB Coby Rhinehart picked off Kevin Glenn in the first quarter for his team-leading fifth interception ... Stamps DB Crance Clemons played in his first game and recorded his first sack ... The weather was so bad, Stamps equipment manager George Hopkins wore long pants, which is a rarity.

UP NEXT:

Argos at Stamps, next Sat., 5 p.m.
