WINNIPEG - The Calgary Stampeders took advantage of three Winnipeg turnovers to score a trio of touchdowns en route to beating the Blue Bombers 33-18 on Thursday.

Receivers Marquay McDaniel and Anthony Parker each caught touchdown passes after Winnipeg turnovers and defensive back Joe Burnett intercepted Bombers quarterback Drew Willy and ran 34 yards into the end zone for another.

Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell completed 29-of-41 pass attempts for 310 yards, three TDs and one interception to move the team's record to 2-1-1.

The victory was Calgary's 14th straight after a bye week and eighth straight in Winnipeg.

The Bombers fell to 1-4 in front of 24,677 fans at a hot, humid Investors Group Field. The team hasn't won a game at home in its past six tries.

Winnipeg attempted another late comeback, similar to a failed attempt in a July 1 Calgary victory.

Misery loves company. So it's alright to see other teams struggling like we are. The Bombers just don't have it. Dressler put in a great showing. However leaning on Dress to get the whole job done himself is just too much. He compliments a good receiving group but shouldn't be the main guy. Dressler is their best receiver. Willy never has been and never will be an elite QB. He is an average starter and an excellent back up.
