After being in the negative category in rushing yards in his last game (-1), and criticizing his offensive line, Cornish was much better last night as he rushed for 170 yards in a 31-20 Calgary win over Hamilton.
With the win, the Stampeders improve to 3-3 while Hamilton fell to 3-3. Just how close is the East at the moment? Hamilton, the Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes are all tied for first place with similar .500 records.
This was the first time the Stampeders played the Tiger-Cats since the two teams made their famous offseason blockbuster deal that saw quarterback Henry Burris traded from Calgary to Hamilton for quarterback Kevin Glenn and offensive lineman Mark Dewit. Ironically both teams came out sluggish and did not score in the first quarter.
The Stampeders dominated the fourth quarter, outscoring the Tiger-Cats 14-0 on an eight yard touchdown run by Romby Bryant and an eight yard touchdown pass from Glenn to Nik Lewis.
