Roughriders remain perfect, hold on to down Stampeders

Aug 3, 2008 - 6:08 AM
CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Saskatchewan Roughriders nearly gave away a 14-point halftime lead but held on late to remain the CFL's only undefeated team with a 22-21 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday.

Sandro DeAngelis missed a 54-yard field goal with no time remaining on the clock for the Stampeders.

Luca Congi missed a field goal attempt of his own earlier in the fourth quarter, but his 46-yard single with 2:24 remaining stood up as the game-winning play for Saskatchewan (6-0).

Trailing 4-3 late in the first quarter, rookie receiver Adarius Bowman caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Crandell, the first of 11 unanswered points to put the Roughriders ahead, 14-4.

DeAngelis converted a 37-yard field goal to stop the run, but Saskatchewan padded its lead on an unusual play at the end of the first half when Crandell hit Matt Dominguez for a 28-yard gain.

However, Dominguez fumbled and teammate Wes Cates recovered, running the final 12 yards for a TD to leave the reigning Grey Cup champions with a 21-7 halftime advantage.

The Stampeders (3-3) stormed back in the second half with 13 unanswered points, getting a 22-yard scoring strike from Henry Burris to Nik Lewis to end the third quarter and field goals from 43 and 37 yards out in the fourth quarter from DeAngelis to move to within 21-20.

Congi added a single late in the fourth, forcing Calgary to turn to DeAngelis in a last-ditch effort by DeAngelis to win the game. But it was for naught when he had to settle for the long single as time expired.
