Last I heard, they were still East but I don't know for sure.
But I have 3 games to report on. First, the Toronto Argonauts against the Calgary Stampeders, then Edmonton Eskimos versus the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and finally, the Saskatchewan Roughriders against the BC Lions.
In the Argonauts/Stampeders game, Michael Bishop, Toronto's QB, was really doing well. He completed 18 out of 23 passes for 273 yards all in just the first half of the game. In the second quarter, he was taken out of the game with a wrist injury. And as if 273 yards isn't enough, Andre Talbot, Tony Miles, Arland Bruce and Derrell Mitchell all caught touchdown passes for Toronto, which racked up 403 yards of offense.
Calgary seemed to be having some trouble again. Henry Burris once again couldn't seem to get the ball to anyone (except for the 10 turnovers to the Argonauts). It wasn't until the final quarter that they finally got on the board. But, by then Toronto already had a commanding lead. The final score was 48-15 for the Argonauts.
In the Eskimos/Blue Bombers game, there isn't really too much to say. Both teams did fairly well both on offense and defense. They were pretty even right down to the wire. In the final quarter, Edmonton pulled ahead. Kamau Peterson (Edmonton receiver) hauled in a nine-yard pass for a TD with 2:45 left in the game, giving Edmonton a 19-15 win over the Bombers.
In a little side note, Milt Stegall once again failed to make it to the end zone and therefore failed to become the CFL's all-time touchdown scorer. He remains stuck on 137, tied with former running backs Mike Pringle and George Reed.
Now the Riders/Lions game. Kerry Joseph did absolutely terrible. I don't think he completed on single pass in the first half of the game, when he was pulled out by Saskatchewan head coach Kent Austin. At half time the Riders were down 21-0. Our offense and defense were really lacking. However, we were able to disable 2 of the Lion's quarterbacks. But their third QB seemed to be just as good as their first their score kept growing. In the second half, Kerry Joseph was replaced by Marcus Crandell. He got the Riders 12 points in the last half but still couldn't bring them back. The final score was 28-12 for the Lions.
