STAMPEDERS 25 BLUE BOMBERS 23

WINNIPEG - Rookie receiver Lemar Durant scored his first CFL touchdown and quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell threw for more than 300 yards and ran in a major as the Calgary Stampeders held off the Blue Bombers for a 25-23 victory on Friday.

The win boosted Calgary's league-leading record to 10-3. Winnipeg fell to 4-9.

The Bombers squeezed the score to 25-22 with under two minutes left after Troy Stoudermire ran a punt back 40 yards.

That helped set up Matt Nichols' six-yard TD pass to Rory Kohlert in the end zone, followed by Cameron Marshall's run for the two-point convert with 1:54 to go.

The Bombers started marching down the field and had a chance to tie the score, but were hurt by a procedure penalty. They ended up having to settle for a single when Lirim Hajrullahu's 50-yard field-goal attempt went wide right with 39 seconds left.

Mitchell was pressured by Winnipeg's defence, and sacked twice, but completed 27-of-35 pass attempts for 333 yards with one TD and one interception.

Bo knows football, so does Jon.

What a cheap "no end" call. 30 yards from the play the guy is standing just back of the line trying to judge. Wpg had first down and cranked up. No not a Wpg fan.

On the other hand the "end " was a yard back. The ball was right on the line so no reason to not know he had to be on the line. Good ref call. Not a Stamps fan.
