It was a defensive start for both teams on Saturday night.

The Stampeders forced a Riders two-and-out on the opening drive. Calgary moved the ball into Saskatchewan territory on their first drive but, eventually punted the ball away.

Calgary got going on offence from an unlikely source.

Cody Grace put a punt inside the Riders 10-yardline and then ran down the field and recovered his own kick to give the Stampeders great field position.

Maier wasted no time finding Begelton in the endzone to make the score 7-0.
