    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 19, 2014

    Game in 90 Seconds

    Game Stats



    It's great to get first place clinched this early, but at the same time it's kind of challenging because now you don't want to look ahead. You try not to look ahead because each week you're going to play a good team.
    For us, I know from talking with the receivers that we want to be a group that is consistent every week and is the best at what we do. So the goal for us I think is 16-2, and then two more. Right now it's just going to be a matter of keeping that focus each week and we'll worry about the playoffs when we get there.

    Recap: Calgary 33, Winnipeg 23

    The Winnipeg Blue Bombers were fighting for their playoff lives and put up a strong fight, but the Calgary Stampeders came out on top in a hard-fought battle to take the Western Division in 2014.

    With a 33-23 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday night, the Stamps (13-2) secured a first place finish, not only in the Western Division but in the entire CFL.

    The Calgary Stampeders earned a 33-23 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers thanks to a dominant outing from RB Jon Cornish. The former Kansas standout not only moved into second place on the all-time rushing list for a Canadian tailback by surpassing Sean Millington, but also helped the Stamps clinch first place in the West Division. With three regular season games remaining, Calgary is already guaranteed to host the West Final on Sunday, November 23.

    Calgary Stampeders Snapshots -- Cornish as good as it gets in Winnipeg
    To think, still affected by the knee injury suffered two weeks ago, Jon Cornish didn't feel perfect.
    "I wasn't too sure about top speed," the Calgary Stampeders running back said. "It felt great to run, felt fine, but walking around, it was uncomfortable. I was sort of unsure about how I was gonna perform."
    The answer: As good as he's darn near been every other time he's taken the field.
