    Cornish’s late touchdown leads Stamps over Lions

    Bo Levi Mitchell threw a pair of touchdown passes and Jon Cornish rushed for another in his return from injury as the Calgary Stampeders pulled away from the BC Lions in the fourth quarter to win 35-23.
    The Lions wasted a brilliant effort from Chris Rainey, who scored both a kickoff and punt return touchdown.
    BC was forced to use rookie pivot Jonathon Jennings after starter John Beck left the game in the second quarter with an apparent shoulder injury. He did not return.

    Jon Cornish returns in fine form for Calgary Stampeders
    Jon Cornish is back
    In the endzone.
    The Calgary Stampeders running back made an impact in his return from the six-game injured list on Friday night, scoring a fourth quarter touchdown in a tighter-than-it-had-to-be 35-23 victory over the B.C. Lions at McMahon Stadium.
    “It was my third attempt,” Cornish said of his two earlier close-but-no-cigar attempts at the endzone.

    Rogers climbing the ladder for Stamps
    The moment seemed to hang there, in memory, even longer than Eric Rogers hovered suspended in air. The No. 80 rising to Jordan-esque heights, as if held in place by invisible strings, before snapping his hands around the ball.
    A set of wire cutters or a stick of blasting gelatin wouldn’t have snipped it loose.
    A bit of Lynn Swann, a dash of Nureyev and a dash of Monte Carlo cat burglar jewel thief thrown in for good measure.

    Lions coach and Hufnagel have long history together
    Theirs is a bond that stretches back a ways.
    “Huff?’’ replied Jeff Tedford. “Oh, yeah. We spent a lot of good days.”
    The two men became friends during stops in Saskatchewan and two years as part of the coaching staff here in Calgary.
    Tedford isn’t surprised at the empire Hufnagel has built since arriving here seven seasons and change ago.

    Lions nearly Rainey on their parade but Stamps knock off B.C.
    For 30 minutes, there was no chance anyone’s ticker would be under duress.
    But as the second half unfolded at McMahon Stadium on Friday night, it was big play after great catch after defensive gem — all of which conjured up a sweat-inducing Calgary Stampeder victory.
    The Stamps overcame a kickoff return AND punt return for touchdowns by B.C.’s Chris Rainey, holding off the Lions for a 35-23 win, improving their West Division-leading record to 9-3.

    Stampeders protect perfect home record
    The Calgary Stampeders’ defence exploited the B.C. Lions’ quarterback woes in a 35-23 win Friday.
    With Travis Lulay on the six-game injured list with a sprained knee and backup John Beck knocked out of Friday’s game in the second quarter, the Stampeder backfield made life hard for third-stringer Jonathon Jennings in his CFL debut.
    The score tied at 21-all early in the fourth quarter, the Stampeders kept the Lions out of the end zone, while Calgary’s stalled offence got back on track.

    Hufnagel wasn't too pleased with the performance the team displayed last night.
    It is probably correct to say that today him and Killiam will have some serious discussions on how to fix the Stamps Special Teams. Outside of Parades, this unit might be the worst in the league.
    Just my observation:
    For the past four games I really feel DD is being out coached. After watching last night's game, until the team can consistently run the ball, Rodgers is all the Stamps have as a threat and a weapon.

    If I was an opposing offensive coordinator all I would do is throw long. With exception of the "run D", the secondary is getting torched.

    At 9-3, I shouldn't be so fickle and be happy that the team is in first place, but I'm concerned with the number of big plays this team keeps giving up.

    Coach Huff is 100% right - respect the fact they won, but that was an ugly ugly game by the Stamps.

    I'm wondering if the injuries are taking their toll on the stamps.

    One goes down?

    Apparently, the number is 'unlimited'.

    The Stampeders' mantra (as it has been for a number of years) is "Next man up!" ;)

    "Yo! I said next!" :cigar:
