Burris' five TD passes lift Stampeders past Roughriders

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:46 PM
CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- One half was all Henry Burris needed to put this one away.

Burris completed 14-of-23 attempts for 336 yards and five touchdowns as the Calgary Stampeders posted a 44-22 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday.

It was the third straight victory for Calgary (6-4-1), which raced to a 28-1 first-half lead, before cruising the rest of the way.

Burris got the ball rolling, connecting with wide receiver Ken-Yon Rambo from 21 yards out at the 5:12 mark of the first quarter. It was Rambo's fourth touchdown catch in his last three games.

Leading by six early in the second quarter, Burris hit Jermaine Copeland for an eight-yard score, 65 seconds into the period to make it 14-1.

Midway through the quarter, Burris threw a quick pass to receiver Nikolas Lewis, who ran 85 yards into the end zone.

Burris' fourth touchdown pass of the first half went to defensive lineman Randy Chevrier from one yard out, who had entered the contest on a tackle-eligible play. That score increased the Stampeders' lead to 28-1 with 1:28 left in the half.

Leading by 13 in the third quarter, Burris fired an 84-yard strike to Copeland at the 5:18 mark to make it 35-15. Copeland caught three passes for 111 yards and two TDs.

Kerry Joseph went 12-of-23 for 144 yards and one interception for Saskatchewan (7-4), which has dropped two straight, but still leads the West Division.

Joseph and running back Wes Cates each ran for touchdowns, before backup quarterback Marcus Crandell threw a 10-yard TD pass to Andy Fantuz in the fourth quarter.
