TORONTO — Another week of football is in the books. Miss anything over the past few days? Don’t worry, CFL.ca’s Replay has got you covered.
Here’s how it all went down in Week 7:
D. Durant: 13/21, 115 yds, 0 TD, 0 INT J. Messam: 19 att, 126 yds, 0 TD C. Getzlaf: 3 rec, 37 yds, 0 TD
D. Willy: 23/39, 303 yds, 1 TD, 3 INT D. Willy: 2 att, 21 yds, 1 TD C. Denmark: 6 rec, 127 yds, 0 TD
A Terrell Maze pick-six with 2:16 remaining stunned a sold-out Investors Group Field crowd as the Saskatchewan Roughriders defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 23-17 Thursday night to kickoff Week 7 in the CFL.
Willy entered the game as the talk of the CFL but two late interceptions, a fumble and a special teams turnover opened the door for a Riders win in what became a Thursday night thriller. The Bombers QB finished 23 of 39 for 304 yards, 1 TD and 3 INTs.
Undoubtedly the most anticipated game between these two clubs in recent memory, the Bombers entered tops in the West while the Riders were coming off two blowout wins over Toronto and Ottawa respectively.
It was also meeting of teacher versus student as Willy took on his former mentor, Darian Durant, for the first time since becoming arguably the most impressive player early in the CFL season.
M. Reilly: 15/21, 206 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT J. White: 7 att, 102 yds, 1 TD A. Bowman: 7 rec, 81 yds, 1 TD
T. Smith: 20/45, 231 yds, 1 TD, 1 INT B. Whitaker: 15 att, 79 yds, 0 TD D. Carter: 10 rec, 112 yds, 0 TD
The Edmonton Eskimos wanted to come out strong following a week off, and they couldn’t have asked for a better start on Friday night.
The Eskimos scored 30 first-half points and never looked back, freezing the hometown Alouettes 33-23 in Week 7 action at Percival Molson Stadium.
Mike Reilly completed 15 of his 22 passes for 208 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, while tailbacks John White and Kendial Lawrence combined for over 225 total yards and two touchdowns to lead the Esks offensively.
Montreal, meanwhile, finally reached the endzone, snapping a slump of 12 quarters, as Brandon Whitaker scored with just over 30 seconds to go in the fourth quarter.
D. LeFevour: 23/34, 298 yds, 0 TD, 0 INT D. LeFevour: 9 att, 103 yds, 1 TD S. Giguere: 3 rec, 130 yds, 0 TD
K. Glenn: 22/36, 407 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT K. Glenn: 2 att, 36 yds, 1 TD S. Gore: 5 rec, 117 yds, 0 TD
Kevin Glenn threw one touchdown pass and rushed for another, as the BC Lions just held on for a narrow 36-29 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday night at BC Place.
In a back-and-forth game that saw the Ticats storm back from a 17-3 first-half deficit, the Lions persevered for their second home win of the season and their fourth win in five games.
Glenn finished with 407 passing yards on 22-36 passing, while Emmanuel Arceneaux had 103 yards and his fourth touchdown grab of the season to overcome a Ticats’ offence that refused to back down.
Dan LeFevour was his team’s biggest threat on the ground and through the air after C.J. Gable exited the game, rushing for a game-high 103 yards on nine carries and a touchdown, including a 63-yard run in the first half. But a valiant effort in just his third career start wasn’t enough, as the Ticats dropped their seventh straight game against a West Division opponent.
H. Burris: 20/29, 281 yds, 1 TD, 2 INT C. Walker: 8 att, 22 yds, 1 TD W. Miles: 5 rec, 102 yds, 1 TD
B. Mitchell: 26/36, 289 yds, 3 TD, 1 INT R. Cote: 6 att, 32 yds, 0 TD M. McDaniel: 9 rec, 117 yds, 1 TD
One week removed from their first loss of the season, the Calgary Stamepeders put together arguably their strongest 60-minute effort of the year.
Bo Levi Mitchell completed 26 of his 36 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns, while rushing for another as he led the Calgary Stampeders to a 38-17 win over the Ottawa REDBLACKS on Saturday night.
Coming into Week 7 the REDBLACKS and Stampeders were not having the production they expected from their offences, with both QBs having trouble finding the endzone over the last few weeks
Despite their troubles, both units were put to the test early on in the final game of Week 7.
