    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for November 2, 2015

    Highlights from Halloween game

    Fans came dressed up in their Halloween costumes to watch the Stamps defeat the Riders.

    Zombies joined the Outriders for a Halloween performance to Thriller.


    Here’s a closer look at Saturday’s 42-19 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders:

    Calgary Stampeders WR Joe West steps up at right time
    Anthony Parker didn't get to see the move.
    But he heard it.
    Calgary Stampeders wideout Joe West provided the highlight of the night Saturday with his shake-'n'-bake touchdown in the second quarter.
    "That was great sense or vision," Parker said of West eluding a would-be tackler and sprinting for a 15-yard major. "I don't know if he saw him or just felt him.
    "I was up the field blocking and waiting for him. I heard the crowd go nuts so I knew we were about to score.
    "It was great to see him have that breakout game. It's been a long time coming for him. He just got a few more opportunities and did a great job with it."

    Calgary Stampeders will host B.C. Lions in West Semifinal
    John Hufnagel said he didn’t care which path his team took.
    As long as it ends up at the intended destination: Winnipeg.
    The Calgary Stampeders GM/head coach and his club will be forced to take the longer route after the Edmonton Eskimos wrapped up first place in the CFL’s West Division, and the accompanying bye week, with a 40-22 win over the Montreal Alouettes on Sunday.
    The Stamps will settle for second place and will host the B.C. Lions in the West Division semifinal on Sunday, Nov. 15.

    Calgary Stampeders 42, Saskatchewan Roughriders 19: Game Balls & Bricks
    It was a mismatch on paper.
    It was a mismatch on the field.
    The Calgary Stampeders showed no mercy to their rivals as they pounded the Saskatchewan Roughriders 42-19 on Saturday at McMahon Stadium.
    It was an efficient gameplan that spread the ball around and the hosts were in complete control from the opening kickoff.
    The Stamps won't hurt their shoulders patting themselves on the back, though.

    Stamps looking for one last tuneup before post-season begins
    There is one final tuneup, just a tinker here or there to make sure the engine is running smoothly.
    The question now is whether the Calgary Stampeders want to fully rev their entire horsepower as they get ready for the post-season.
    Regardless, the Stamps have proven to be clicking on all cylinders lately.
    Once again, the Stampeders are heading into the final weekend of the regular season playing the B.C. Lions in Vancouver without any bearing on the standings.

    Stamps settle for second, prepare to host B.C. in CFL playoffs
    Josh Bell, a man of infinite variety, had taken on the guise of cartographer late Sunday morning.
    “If it happens, we’ve just got to take a different road,’’ reasoned the loquacious safety, five or so hours before the Calgary Stampeders’ first-place fate would be determined. “Sometimes when you’re in the car trying to get someplace, you run into a detour right?
    “A Road Closed sign and you’ve got to change your plans.
    “So if we’ve got to go by a different road, a little bit out of our way, that’s fine.
    “Just as long as we reach our destination.’’

    Stamps notes: West makes most of chances
    Asked about the great move, John Hufnagel made a point to mention the great catch.
    Such was the day for Calgary Stampeders receiver Joe West on Halloween at McMahon Stadium.
    The 42-19 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders was the busiest day of West’s four-year tenure with the Stamps, as he was targeted 10 times.
    After it was all said and done, he picked up eight catches for 102 yards, with the highlights being a spectacular shake off of a defender to get a touchdown and a great reach for a low pass.

    Great work by the coaches and the players again this year.
    8-1 at home. Too bad the only loss cost the team first in the West.

    I am just a little worried when the Stamps have to face the same opponent twice in a row.

    I do hope the team doesn't suffer any significant injuries this weekend in a meaningless game.

    I agree; if we can get through this last game injury free I like our chances!
    Our guys are being talked about as second tier for the last month of the season which I'm sure will have them motivated while the eskihomos have got a bit of cockiness to them (is that possible for a team that has been that bad for that long and lost 98% of they're games to the stamps over the last 5 years? Oh yeah, it's Edmonton) so I really like our chances all of a sudden; IF we get no more injuries.
    Edmonton has barely won their last 4 games mostly due to other teams blunders late in games.

    If only the stamps could have that loooong rest period before the playoffs.
