    After a 15 day hiatus, time for the Stampeders to get back into the winning routine and tame the Lions in their own den.

    After the rust from 2 weeks of inactivity wears off, I think Calgary wins this one by 15.

    We'll see.

    Goooooo Stampeders!

    After Finch takes the opening kickoff back to the BC 53, the receivers sputter after a couple of catches, and Calgary settles for a 38 yard Paredes FG.

    Looks like some rust to me.

    3-0 Stamps.

    Stamps offence sputtering a bit; the defence is looking good.
    Keep the pressure on Jennings; he still looks jittery

    Defence doesn't look rusty, though.

    BC goes 2 and out.

    Calgary ball at their own 15.

    BLM tosses to Michel and overthrows him.

    Messam runs for 9 on a draw.

    3rd and 1. Calgary punting.

    BC returns the ball to their 49 and benefits from a 15 yard "no yards" call.

    BC at the Calgary 52.

    Singleton picks off the pass by Jennings at Calgary's 44 and runs it back to BC's 27.

    Holding penalty to Wilson.

    15 yards over the middle to Davaris Daniels.

    On second down, BLM overthrows Daniels.

    FG time.

    Paredes makes it good from 29 yards out.

    6 nuthin' Calgary.

    BC punt blocked, and Hughes recovers.

    From BC 43, Messam off tackle for 4.

    Marken Michel catches the throw over the middle for 9.

    Messam dropped for a 1 yard loss.

    On a desperation throw, BLM tosses for 20 to Michel.

    Messam bulls ahead on a tipped snap for 2.

    Bo nearly picked off in BC endzone.

    Paredes kicks another FG.

    9-zip, Calgary.

    This game should already be out of hand for BC; hopefully we don't regret not taking advantage of killer field position all half

    Yup.

    The defence is playing him very well so far.

    Singleton unlucky not to have picked off his second of the game on the last series.

    BLM on first down from Calgary's 9 throws to Michel for 40!

    Messam off left tackle for 2.

    Time count violation for 5.

    BLM throws incomplete. In fact, nearly a Lions pick.

    Calgary punting.

    BC ball at their own 38.

    Lions go 2 and out.

    After receiving the punt, so does Calgary.

    BC ball again.

    They repeat the feat.

    Ball punted deep into Calgary end but Finch lures them into a 15 yard no yards penalty.

    From their own 25, BLM pitches for 10 to Michel.

    Michel on a running play that's nearly disastrous, but gains 4.

    Incomplete pass and Maver punts.

    Lions return the ball to their 41.

    On 2nd and long, Jennings throws for 28, then for 10 more down to Calgary's 36 to take the game to the 3 minute warning before the half.

    Driving to the Calgary 23 with the aid of an offside penalty, Jeremiah Johnson catches the pass and takes it inside the 10. Rainey takes the ball down to Calgary's 2.

    After goofiest "I" formation ever, Lions called down at the 1, and on next play, Jennings scores on a QB sneak.

    Williams catches the 2 point convert.

    9-8 Stampeders.

    Time to get the rust out, fellas!

    On Calgary's series, Purefoy picks off Bo with under a minute to run and BC has the ball at Calgary's 41.

    Ciante Evans picks off Jennings and the Stampeders dodge a bullet.

    Incomplete to McDaniel.

    Daniels catches ball for 1st down but holding brings it back.

    Sloppy first half by both teams.

    BLM passing at a .33 completion clip.

    I knew they'd be rusty, but that was not impressive.

    9-8 at the half.

    Aided by a "horsecollar tackle" call against BC, Calgary drives to BC's 39 before stalling.

    Paredes kicks it through the uprights for 3 more from 46 yards out.

    12-8, Calgary.

    BLM worst game in a long time. So much for locking it down. Plenty of rust.
    Not taking advantage of some great opportunities in the first half will cost them this game.

    BC drives the ball from their own 35 while aided by a stupid roughing call taken by Thurman, and gets to the Stampeders' 20, then Rainey scores from there on some sloppy tackling efforts by Thurman and Evans.

    BC misses the convert.

    14-12, BC.

    What is with these high snaps?
    Is Brett Jones available?
    Williams is not the answer at centre.

    Messam runs for 5, then BLM has another pass attempt batted down at the line.

    Punting.

    Wow. Looks like a 15 yard no yards call on Calgary.

    This was sure worth waiting 15 days to see...:eek:

    Thurman on a fast blitz redeems himself with a 13 yard sack of Jennings.

    On 2nd down, Jennings forced out short.

    BC punting, and Finch returns it 37 yards for naught with an illegal block call on Riley Jones...

    From their 15, 7 yard catch by McDaniel.

    Then Messam bulls up the middle for 17.

    Parker catches a deep ball for 50.

    Cote catches a short pass for 5.

    McDaniel over the middle for 16 down to the BC 1

    Calgary threatening at the end of the 3rd Q.

    From BC's 1, Messam bashes it in for the major!

    2 point convert fails, and it's now 18-14, Stampeders.

    From his 31, Jennings scrambles for 11.

    Then a holding call on Palmer negates a 14 yard gain by Arcenaux.

    Iannuzi gets 12 back on a catch, then Jennings misses Williams on a deep throw.

    With BC punting, Calgary roughs the kicker.

    From Calgary's 51, Jennings on a QB draw for 11.

    Rainey for 3.

    Arcenaux makes the first down catch at Calgary's 26.

    On first down, Jennings throws an "alley oop" to no one.

    Rainey on a screen runs for 5.

    FG try by BC.

    He's good from 28 yards out.

    18-17, Calgary.
