    Tonight, I just wanted to come in and make an impact early. From the opening kickoff return, I just wanted to start off fast and I accomplished my goal tonight.
    I was definitely nervous, this being my first game in the CFL. But I started to feel comfortable after that first touch and big return.

    Tonight was a well-fought battle. Both teams came out and no one wanted to make a mistake — we prepared all week long for this game.
    We knew at halftime that it was going to come down to big plays in the fourth quarter. The defence stepped up and we made a couple of big plays.

    Jon Cornish smashed a pair of records Friday night.
    One of them was his own.
    He says chasing down his own mark doesn’t make it any less significant.
