    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for September 29, 2014


    Here’s a closer look at Saturday’s 14-7 victory over the BC Lions at McMahon Stadium:
    Thank heaven for No. 11
    The Stamps won their 11th game of the season on Saturday, reaching that total for the fifth consecutive season and for the sixth time in seven years under John Hufnagel.

    Leading the defence once again on Saturday for the Red and White was linebacker Juwan Simpson, who registered nine tackles in Calgary's 14-7 victory over the visiting BC Lions.
    The Stamps improved to 11-2 with the Week 14 win and now own a 6-1 mark at McMahon Stadium, having suffered their only defeat at the hands of the same Leos back on Aug. 1.

    Cornish works his way back to form in win over Lions
    The return of running back Jon Cornish and the resurgence of the Calgary Stampeders defence after a couple of porous performances were the difference in a 14-7 win over the B.C Lions on Saturday.
    The highest-scoring team in the CFL couldn't muster a touchdown, but Stampeders kicker Rene Paredes made four of his six field-goal attempts and Cornish rushed for 156 yards to get the team into scoring position.

    Bo and the bye-week.
    It’s the new made-for-TV drama that may turn out to be not so dramatic, after all.
    Bo Levi Mitchell wants nothing more than to return to the CFL field this Friday against the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina.

    Mitchell hands out his Stampeders' game ball and bricks from Saturday's win over B.C. Lions
    One loss was enough.
    The Calgary Stampeders (11-2) simply don’t do two-game losing streaks.
    Coming into Saturday night at McMahon Stadium off a loss the Montreal Alouettes last weekend, the B.C. Lions had a glorious chance to take advantage of a banged-up Stamps squad and send them on their first two-game skid since Weeks 2 and 3 of the 2012 campaign.

    Stamps defence redeems itself with gem against B.C. Lions
    The wildest thing about the Wild West Showdown on Saturday night at McMahon Stadium was probably the 180 by the Calgary Stampeders’ defence after a generous first five minutes. From that point on, they were at their parsimonious best.
    “You watched the game in Montreal,” began linebacker Juwan Simpson. “We were there, but we weren’t really there. We know what type of team we are; we’re an emotionally-driven team. We’ve been preaching that all week and the guys responded well. I’m sure we have a lot of corrections to do, but, hey, I’m proud of them.”

    You battle domestic abuse and family violence through good role modelling, Soup Sisters founder Sharon Hapton said.
    You lead by example, she said.
    Or, as was the case Sunday evening, you take a few local football players, put aprons on them and ladles into their hands and had them lend a bit of elbow grease and love to the women and children in need at the Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter.
