Stamps Fall In Winnipeg

Dedrick Mills rushed for just under 100-yards and a touchdown and James Vaughters had two sacks but the Stamps fell to the Bombers 24-11 in Winnipeg on Friday night.

Calgary now sits at 1-3 on the season while the Bombers climb to 4-1.


QB Jake Maier: 14-for-25 122 yards.

RB Dedrick Mills: 14 rushes 97-yards, one touchdown.

REC Reggie Begelton: four receptions, 51 yards.

DL James Vaughters: three tackles, two sacks.

The Stamps got the game going on their second drive as Mills busted off a 33-yard run and then added seven on his next carry to get Calgary into field-goal range. Rene Paredes hit from 30-yards out to make the score 3-0.

Mills continued to dominate on the Stamps next possession crossing over 70-yards on the ground in the first quarter. He capped the drive off with a touchdown to give Calgary a 10-0 lead.

The Bombers punted one into the endzone on the last play of the quarter to make it 10-1 after the first.

Vaughters picked up his second sack of the night to halt Collaros and company on their first drive of the second-quarter. The Stamps ventured into Winnipeg territory but only managed a rouge from a punt to make the score 11-1.

The Bombers got three late in the half to make it 11-4.

Winnipeg got the ball back again and score their first touchdown of the evening to make the score 11-11 heading into the half.

It was a defensive battle in the third-quarter, the biggest playing coming from defensive lineman Mike Rose who grabbed the Stampeders third sack of the night leading to Calgary starting on the Bombers side of midfield.

However, the Bombers picked off Maier on the first offensive play of the drive to turn momentum back the other way.

After a suspect pass interference call that extended a Bombers drive they were able to put the ball into the endzone to make the score 18-11 heading into the final quarter.

Rene Paredes missed a field-goal that was returned all the way inside their 20-yardline which led to a Bombers field-goal to making it 21-11 early in the fourth.

Winnipeg put together a nearly 10-minute drive in the fourth-quarter that ended in a field-goal to make the score 24-11.

That would be the final.
