    Post Game Edition



    Recap: Calgary 20, BC 6

    The defending champs start off the pre-season with a win, with help from a pair of field goals by both Rene Paredes and Tyler Crapigna. Rookie QB's Jonathon Jennings for BC and Canadian Andrew Buckley for Calgary both saw action as well.

    Receiver Greg Wilson and quarterback Andrew Buckley met with the media following the Stamps' 20-6 win over the Lions in pre-season.

    Fourth quarter major lifts Stamps over Lions

    Quarterback Dominique Davis and slotback Greg Wilson connected early in the fourth quarter for a major to help the Calgary Stampeders top the BC Lions 20-6 in pre-season action at McMahon Stadium Friday night.
    Davis was one of four pivots to see game action Friday as the Stampeders fine tune for the regular season.
    John Hufnagel said earlier in the week that he would be relying heavily on his newcomers but wanted to ensure his starters shook off the rust from an off-season that including the celebrating of a Grey Cup.

    The Calgary Stampeders played a solid defensive game and spread the ball around on offence in a 20-6 CFL pre-season victory over the BC Lions on Friday night at McMahon Stadium.
    “I thought we played fast,” said Stampeders head coach and general manager John Hufnagel. “We played physical for 60 minutes in all three phases. We made plays with our speed — that’s what I liked.”
    Less pleasing to the veteran coach were the number of penalties — the Stamps were flagged 14 times for 106 yards — and the usual rough edges you might expect from a pre-season opener.

    Five key plays from Calgary Stampeders 20-6 win over the B.C Lions in pre-season play
    Dexter Janke makes impression
    An under-the-radar fifth-round pick out of the Okanagan Sun junior program, Janke came up with a big hit on Leos punt returner Darious Lane. Even though it was wiped out by a penalty, Janke likely caught the coaching staff's eye and he'll need to continue to do so over the next couple of weeks to find a role. With three ACL surgeries on his resume, Janke is a great story either way.

    Stampeders Quick Hitters -- DE Freddie Bishop III looking to nail down a full-time job
    Freddie Bishop III will be celebrating an anniversary next month.
    This month, he'll likely be celebrating locking down a Calgary Stampeders defensive end spot that has produced 27 sacks and sent two players — Cordarro Law in 2013, Shawn Lemon in 2014 — to the NFL in the past two years.
    Signed by the Stamps on July 16, 2013, Bishop has quietly worked, toiled, and marinated under the tutelage of defensive line coach DeVone Claybrooks for almost two years, shifting inside to defensive tackle, at times, and then kicking back outside to rush the passer.

    Calgary Stampeders open up pre-season play with 20-6 win over the B.C. Lions on Friday night
    Greg Wilson showed up in the Stampede City as a relatively unknown.
    At this rate, Calgary Stampeders fans will know all about the rookie receiver by the time the season opener rolls around.
    The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder was the lone player to find the endzone during last Sunday’s mock game.
    And he was the only player doing a touchdown dance in the pre-season opener.

    Stamps’ Cory Mitchell makes professional debut
    Bo Levi Mitchell played one series and called it a night.
    But the McMahon Stadium field was far from Mitchell-less Friday night, as older brother Cory checked into his first professional game in the second quarter and finished with two catches for 16 yards in the Calgary Stampeders’ 20-6 win over the B.C. Lions in the pre-season opener.

    Stamps youngsters gets chance to shine against Lions
    Head coach and general manager John Hufnagel spoke during the week leading up to the Calgary Stampeders’ first pre-season game that he wished to see separation between players, whatever cream they have in their veins rising to the top.
    As the game unfolded, a number of them did just that as the Stamps recorded a 20-6 victory over the B.C. Lions Friday night at McMahon Stadium.
    “I thought we played fast, we played physical for 60 minutes,” said Hufnagel. “All three phases made plays with their speed. We made our share of mistakes, we have a lot of growth yet to do, but it’s the first pre-season game and I liked the effort we displayed.”

    Stampeders cruise past Lions in CFL pre-season
    Andrew Buckley felt right at home in his first professional football game because he was a Canadian university star in the same stadium.
    The 21-year-old quarterback, who won the Hec Crighton Award last year playing for his hometown University of Calgary Dinos, started the second quarter of the Calgary Stampeders’ pre-season game against the B.C. Lions on Friday.
    Buckley marshalled the offence for a pair of third-quarter field goals in the Stampeders’ 20-6 win over the visiting Lions at McMahon Stadium.

    Jon Cornish on life beyond the CFL
    He is the most interesting man in Canadian football. On the field, running back Jon Cornish of the Calgary Stampeders has been honoured as the CFL’s top Canadian three years in a row. Off the field, he’s equally intriguing. Raised by two moms and educated in psychology at the University of Kansas, Cornish is a must-follow commentator on Twitter, an online gaming guru and a man who does multiple acts of charity. On top of that, he has already begun his after-football career working with TD Canada Trust. He found time before Calgary’s first preseason game to talk with Allan Maki.

    Key battles to watch!
    Yes it’s only a preseason game but there are still plenty of story lines heading into tonight’s tilt at McMahon Stadium.
    Stampeder fans know there will be some new faces on the team this season as DL Shawn Lemon and Center Brett Jones have bolted to the NFL. LT Stanley Byrant, Receivers Nik Lewis and Brad Sinopoli and S Keenan MacDougall left via free agency. Receiver Mo Price was traded to Ottawa for Jasper Simmons and Dan Buckner.
