    Cornish, Stampeders gallop their way to first place in West

    Jon Cornish and the Calgary Stampeders cemented themselves as the best in the west after defeating the Winnipeg Blue Bombers by a score of 26-25 on Saturday night at McMahon Stadium.
    Despite having less than 50 yards from scrimmage midway through the third quarter, Cornish exploded in the fourth, finishing with 120 yards on 15 carries.
    With the standout Canadian running back shouldering most of the load, Bo Levi Mitchell just had to manage the game and he did just that by not turning the ball over and throwing for 165 yards with one touchdown.

    Making a pair of crucial plays on special teams in Calgary’s come-from-behind victory over the Blue Bombers on Saturday evening was third-year Stampeder Adam Berger.
    The Simon Fraser product first made his presence felt by stripping Winnipeg returner Troy Stoudermire of the football while covering a first-quarter punt.
    Veteran long snapper Randy Chevrier recovered the fumble and the change of possession led to a 19-yard touchdown toss from Bo Levi Mitchell to WR Eric Rogers just three plays later.

    The Stampeders recovered from a slow start to defeat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 26-25 on Saturday at McMahon Stadium and take sole possession of first place in the CFL’s West Division.
    Calgary improves to 3-1, one win ahead of BC, Edmonton and Winnipeg. It was the Stamps’ 50th regular-season home victory since John Hufnagel took over as head coach and general manager prior to the 2008 season.

    Stamps beat Blue Bombers with late FG
    Juwan Simpson preserved a big win for the Stampeders on Saturday with a key interception late in the game.
    The veteran linebacker picked off an errant pass by quarterback Drew Willy with 23 seconds remaining as Calgary edged the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 26-25 in front of 29,255 fans at McMahon Stadium.
    "I just happened to be in the right place at the right time," said Simpson, who also had four tackles. "It felt good to be able to seal it for my team. We've been in this situation before. There was no panic by anybody on the team. We just keep fighting through. These are the games that you cherish because you realize how hard you fought to come back and get that win."

    5 Key Plays from the Stamps' win over the Bombers
    Denmark goes deep
    The Winnipeg Blue Bombers offence got off to a great start. On the visitors’ opening sequence, SB Clarence Denmark snuck behind the coverage and was wide open. Bombers QB Drew Willy hit him in stride for a 75-yard touchdown, the longest throw of the pivot’s career (until later in the game). The touchdown gave the Blue & Gold an early 8-0 lead and will provide the Calgary Stampeders some game film to look at over the next week.

    Adam Berger soaks in the accolades for Calgary Stampeders
    The game ball is a treasure to a special teamer.
    A place is already waiting for the one Calgary Stampeders defensive back Adam Berger received after his outstanding performance in Saturday’s 26-25 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
    “That’s why I’ll probably remember this for the rest of my life,” Berger said as he looked at the pigskin in his locker. “I’m going to take this, put it on my mantle. It’s awesome.

    Rene Paredes key to Calgary Stampeders win
    He might not hit ’em all.
    But he nails the big ones.
    Calgary Stampeders kicker Rene Paredes proved once again he’s the best pressure-kicker in the game on Saturday night.
    The 30-year-old struggled early, missing a short field goal and an extra point, but he came through in the clutch.
    Paredes booted a game-winning field goal from 40 yards out with 2:36 on the clock to beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 26-25.

    20 Questions with Jon Cornish
    1. It’s Sunday morning, what are you having for breakfast?
    The day after a game? My girl and my mom might cook me a nice little breakfast. Some sausage, hash browns, maybe some eggs. Definitely some pancakes. A nice little selection.

    Stampeders defeat Blue Bombers in squeaker
    It may have been a picture-perfect day at McMahon Stadium on a late Saturday afternoon, but it was was hardly that type of a game … on both sides of the field.
    Not mistake-free football by any stretch, but there were enough good things happening for the Calgary Stampeders, particularly as the game progressed, to enable them to eke out their third win of this young CFL season.
    Rene Paredes hit a 40-yard field goal with just over two minutes left in the game to lift Calgary to a 26-25 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

    Blue Bombers Shoot Themselves In Foot, Lose To Stampeders
    Winnipeg Blue Bombers went in to Calgary Saturday night looking to improve to 3-1 with a win over the defending Grey Cup Champion Stampeders. Instead, mistakes helped cost them in a 26-25 loss.
    Blue Bombers Lirim Hajrullahu’s kick-off was downed in the end zone to give the Bombers the earliest possible lead at 1-0. Bombers QB Drew Willy opened the major scoring in the game when he hit receiver Clarence Denmark for a 75-yard touchdown. With the convert Bombers led early 8-0. Later in first quarter after an end zone pass interference call, Bombers QB Brian Brohm came in on short yardage and punched in a 1-yard TD. The convert gave Winnipeg a surprising 16-0 lead.
