    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for July 28, 2014

    Keenan MacDougall enjoys special game for Calgary Stampeders

    Keenan MacDougall has been dreaming of making plays.
    He lived the dream last week in Edmonton.
    The Calgary Stampeders defensive back made a pair of massive special-teams plays — a blocked kick for a touchdown and a stop on a third-down gamble — to propel his team to a 26-22 CFL road victory in Edmonton.
    It had to feel sweet after spending the last year just trying to get on the field.

    Calgary Stampeders Shawn Lemon, Charleston Hughes have sack fight
    Shawn Lemon insists he got the sack.
    Charleston Hughes says it was all his.
    The Calgary Stampeders two defensive ends crushed Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly almost simultaneously in Thursday’s 26-22 CFL road victory.
    “Most importantly, we got the win. You have to be a team guy first,” Lemon said.

    Changes abound in the Calgary Stampeders offensive backfield
    There is only guessing what the offensive backfield will look like as the Calgary Stampeders begin preparation on Monday for their date with the B.C. Lions on Friday night. Concussions are plaguing Jon Cornish and Matt Walter. And if, as some predict, Walter won’t be ready to go, Jock Sanders is primed and ready for more action, as is Martell Mallett.
    Sanders, who went into Thursday’s game in Edmonton as Walter’s backup at running back and lead return man, found himself wearing all the hats after the latter left the game with the head issues. He could have, in fact, asked for some overtime pay.

    Historic Calgary week features Stampeders highlights
    A chance to bone up on your Calgary football knowledge this week is part of Historic Calgary Week.

    The first game of Week 5 saw two unbeaten teams in Calgary at Edmonton and how the Stampeders won I have no idea.
    Edmonton dominated and Calgary survived. Yes, that is an ability and skill set. Consider this: At the end of the first quarter Calgary had zero first downs, three yards rushing and 17 yards passing.
