Calgary's Romby Bryant catches 2 TDs as Stampeders blow out Eskimos 52-5

Sep 7, 2010 - 1:33 AM CALGARY (CP) - Romby Bryant caught a pair of touchdown passes as the Calgary Stampeders trounced the Edmonton Eskimos 52-5 on Labour Day.

The Stamps (8-1) erupted for four touchdowns in the second quarter to take a commanding 33-5 lead Monday over the struggling Eskimos (2-7).

Joffrey Reynolds ran for a touchdown early in the second quarter before Bryant caught the first of his two TD passes from Calgary quarterback Henry Burris.

In a wild last minute of the first half, Calgary defensive back Brandon Smith turned his first CFL interception into a 58-yard score before Ken-Yon Rambo caught a 10-yard TD pass from Burris two plays after a fumble by Edmonton quarterback Ricky Ray.

Ray struggled in the afternoon affair in front of 34,559 fans at McMahon Stadium as he went 9 for 22 for 157 yards and a pair of interceptions. Back-up pivot Jared Zabransky didn't fare much better as he completed just 2-of-5 passes for just 25 yards in addition to being picked off twice.

Meanwhile, Burris went 15 for 23 for 226 yards, three touchdowns and one interception before being relieved by Drew Tate in the third quarter. Tate completed 6-of-7 passes for 96 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown pass to Deon Murphy late in the fourth quarter.

Rob Maver kicked a field goal and a single for the Stamps, while Calgary also recorded six points on three safeties.

Edmonton kicker Noel Prefontaine accounted for all of Edmonton's points with a field goal and two singles.

Both teams won't have much time to rest as they'll play again in Edmonton at Commonwealth Stadium on Friday night.

After giving up a single just two seconds into the game, the Stamps started their opening drive on the 35-yard line. Burris promptly tossed a 46-yard bomb to Rambo to put the Stamps into Edmonton territory. With the completed pass, Burris moved past Dieter Brock into 10th spot on the CFL's all-time passing list.

Following a 29-yard field goal by Maver, Prefontaine booted with a 70-yard punt single to pull the Eskimos within a point. Later in the opening quarter, Prefontaine lined up to punt from his own end zone but chose to concede a safety giving the Stamps.

Just 13 seconds into the second quarter, Reynolds capped off a four-play, 38-yard drive by running into the end zone for a nine-yard touchdown.

After Bryant caught a 30-yard TD pass from Burris to put Calgary up 19-2, Prefontaine replied with a 31-yard field goal for Edmonton.

Things continued to get worse for the Eskimos as Smith picked off an errant pass by Ray and ran it back for a touchdown before Brandon Isaac forced the veteran Edmonton QB to fumble the ball on his own 23-yard line. Two plays later, Rambo caught a 10-yard TD pass from Burris.

Bryant added a 19-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter, while Prefontaine also conceded a safety.

The Stamps continued to build on their lead in the fourth quarter on a 42-yard single by Maver and another safety when Jason Maas, Edmonton's third QB of the game, was called for intentional grounding in the end zone. Murphy then rounded out the scoring with his TD catch.

Notes: The Stamps now have a 32-28-1 record in games played on Labour Day and have gone 21-28-1 against the Esks. ... With two interceptions in the contest, Calgary cornerback Brandon Browner has now picked off 11 passes in his CFL career. Smith also finished the game with a pair of interceptions, the first two of his career. ... Edmonton running back Arkee Whitlock left the game in the first quarter with an injury to his left foot and didn't return.
