Toronto Argonauts 27 Calgary Stampeders 24
58 minutes had elapsed, and the Argonauts had not scored even one touchdown…that is, until Jeff Johnson scored on a one-yard run to give the Argonauts a 25-24 lead over the Stampeders; Cleo Lemon found Chad Owens in the end zone on the two-point convert to extend Toronto’s lead to three points at 27-24. On the ensuing series, the Stampeders turned the ball over on downs.
The Argos scored the other 19 points off four Grant Shaw field goals, a Grant Shaw single, and three safeties (the CFL record for most safeties in a game is four).
Toronto quarterback Cleo Lemon completed 18 of 37 passes for 187 yards, throwing a pass to Calgary’s Brandon Browner. Running back Cory Boyd ran the ball twenty times for 142 yards.
Calgary’s Henry Burris went 20-of-40 passing for 207 yards and three touchdowns: one to Nik Lewis, one to Romby Bryant, and one to Deon Murphy. However, Burris threw four interceptions: two to Kevin Eiben, one to Willie Pile, and one to Evan McCollough; it was the first time Burris threw four interceptions in a game since 2000, and he nearly threw a 5th on Calgary’s last drive.
Stampeders kicker Rob Maver kicked a 21-yard field goal and made three converts in the game.
Both teams now stand at 2-1 on the season.
