    Cowtown Comeback: Stamps storm back to stun Argos

    Trailing by 19 heading into the second half, the Calgary Stampeders could have easily given up, and shifted their focus to next week's clash with the Alouettes in Montreal.
    Instead, the league-best Stamps stormed back to the tune of 30 second-half points, shocking the Argonauts en-route to a 40-33 win on Saturday night at McMahon Stadium.

    Down 32-10 in the third quarter of the Stampeders’ slugfest against the Toronto Argonauts, it seemed nothing short of divine intervention would allow the Red and White to come back and win the game.
    But as luck would have it, Saturday night’s game was Faith and Family Night, and there must have been more than a few prayers answered from the crowd of 28,607 red-clad fans.

    The Calgary Stampeders equaled their biggest comeback in franchise history as they rallied for a 40-33 victory over the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday at McMahon Stadium.
    The Stamps trailed the game 29-3 with less than five minutes to play in the first half before scoring seven points late in the second quarter and putting 15 points on the board in both the third and fourth quarters to complete the comeback.

    Stamps lose key players but win big over Argos
    The Calgary Stampeders were whipped in the first half, allowing the visiting Toronto Argonauts to jump out to a 26-point lead as Ricky Ray threw four touchdown passes.
    In the second half, they lost two defensive lineman on one play — Charleston Hughes and Demonte Bolden — and then starting quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell took a hard hit and left with a knee injury that appears to be serious.

    Jon Cornish runs wild as Calgary Stampeders come galloping back
    Jon Cornish running wild was exactly what the Calgary Stampeders needed.
    Bo Levi Mitchell crumpling to the turf with a knee injury, however, is something they did not need.
    On the back of the reigning MOP, the Stamps erased a 19-point halftime deficit to come back and beat the Toronto Argonauts, 40-33, at McMahon Stadium on Saturday evening, as Cornish rumbled for 174 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns, including a game-winning, 25-yard reception from Drew Tate with less than two minutes to play.

    Calgary Stampeders terrible for first half, much better in the second
    If the paint was peeled off the walls, it was redone to pristine condition in a hurry.
    If garbage cans were kicked over in a rage, the cleanup by the final gun was impeccable.
    With his team trailing 29-10 and looking awful in the process, you could understand Calgary Stampeders head coach John Hufnagel blowing a gasket at his players in the locker-room during the halftime break of Saturday's clash with the Toronto Argonauts.

    Injuries mar exciting Calgary Stampeders victory
    They won the game — and what a win it was.
    But there were devastating losses.
