    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for July 20, 2015

    Calgary Stampeders get big play from Juwan Simpson

    Drew Willy could see a glimmer of hope.
    But he didn’t see Juwan Simpson.
    The Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback needed to move his team at least 25 yards in 33 seconds to set up a potential game-winning field-goal late in Saturday’s 26-25 Calgary Stampeders CFL victory at McMahon Stadium.

    Calgary Stampeders suffer more injuries along offensive line
    Karl Lavoie finally got to live his dream.
    But it quickly turned into a nightmare.
    The Calgary Stampeders first-round draft pick dressed for his first CFL game on Saturday night, serving as the sixth offensive lineman in the home club’s 26-25 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at McMahon Stadium.
    After close friend Pierre Lavertu came out of the game with a stinger, Lavoie made his professional debut at centre.

    Calgary Stampeders game balls and game bricks
    They don’t ask how … just how many.
    The Calgary Stampeders will put Saturday’s outing in the win column and move on.
    Ugly as it might have been, it’s still worth two points and the Stamps sit alone atop the CFL’s West Division standings at 3-1.
    The 26-25 win was a weird one that featured more injuries, more flags and more missed opportunities.

    Special teams key Stamps' victory over Winnipeg
    Football’s three phases each had their day in the brilliant sun on Saturday at McMahon Stadium, with special teams deservedly hogging the spotlight.
    With his squad down 16-0 and looking for a spark to ignite anywhere on the field, Adam Berger — a third-year player out of Simon Fraser — lit the fire first with a forced fumble and then on a blocked punt, both plays getting the Calgary Stampeders back into the game and enabling them to come away with a narrow 26-25 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
    Thanks to Rene Paredes’ clutch 40-yard field goal with 2:36 left in the game, the Stamps recorded their third victory of the season and now sit alone atop the CFL West Division.

    More late heroics keep Stampeders undefeated at home this season
    The special teams were much better, the run game started clicking, special teams were smooth sailing — impactful even — and the Calgary Stampeders are now in front in the West Division.
    Considering the short week and rebuilt offensive line, the Stamps victory the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 26-25 on Saturday night proved once again they are one of the best teams in the CFL.
    When it comes to crunch time, the Stamps are getting the job done, as Bo Levi Mitchell connected with Eric Rogers on a 21-yard gain, then Jon Cornish capped off a breakout night by picking up another seven yards on two carries to set up the goahead field goal by Rene Paredes from 40 yards out.
