REGINA - The Calgary Stampeders defeated the Saskatchewan Roughriders 22-19 on a 44-yard field goal by Rene Paredes on the final play of the fourth quarter on Saturday.
Paredes initially hit from 39 yards out but an illegal procedure penalty on the Stampeders forced a second attempt.
It was the second straight victory over the Riders for the Stampeders, who picked up a 23-17 victory last week in Calgary. The win improves Calgary's record to 4-5 while the Riders drop to 5-4.
The Stamps, who ran out to a 14-0 lead in last week's victory over the Riders, had another great start on Saturday.
Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell connected with Markeith Ambles on a 71-yard touchdown pass on the first offensive play of the game. Ambles was wide open on the right sideline, hauled in the pass at the Saskatchewan 30-yard line and ran away from Riders defensive back Christian Campbell to the end zone.
Mitchell put up the same stellar numbers in the first quarter, completing 6-of-8 passes for 132 yards and one touchdown.
