STAMPEDERS 48 REDBLACKS 3
Joe West and Eric Rogers caught touchdown passes in the second quarter from Mitchell, who completed 17-of-25 passes for 243 yards before giving way to backup quarterback Drew Tate in the third quarter.
Matt Walter ran for another TD, while Rene Paredes kicked three field goals, three converts and a single for the Stampeders (5-2), who avenged a 29-26 overtime loss they suffered to the Redblacks (4-3) in Ottawa on July 24. Rob Maver added a single, while Calgary also scored on a safety.
Chris Milo accounted for all of Ottawa's points when he kicked a field goal in the first quarter. The Redblacks had won their previous two games.
Ottawa's punt return team had a rough game as Brandon McDonald fumbled a pair of punts in the first half, while Jovon Johnson dropped another punt in the third quarter. The Stamps recovered all three fumbles and quickly turned each of the turnovers into touchdowns.
Randy Chevrier recovered McDonald's first fumble early in the first quarter on the Ottawa 37-yard line. Two plays later, Mitchell ran the ball into the end zone from 11 yards out and then promptly threw a three-yard pass to Tory Harrison for a two-point convert to put Calgary up 8-0.
