CALGARY — Joffrey Reynolds scored one touchdown on the ground and another through the air to lead the Calgary Stampeders to a 31-23 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday night.

Reynolds now has 44 touchdowns in his five-year career, moving him into ninth place on the Stamps’ all-time list past both Herm Harrison and Terry Evanshen.

Calgary quarterback Henry Burris threw touchdown passes to Reynolds and Titus Ryan, while Sandro DeAngelis added three field goals for the Stamps (3-3), who are now tied atop the CFL’s West Division with the Edmonton Eskimos and Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Fred Reid rushed for a pair of touchdowns for the Blue Bombers (2-4), while Alexis Serna kicked three field goals.

DeAngelis booted a 48-yard field goal to get things started for the Stamps on their first drive of the game.

On the ensuing kickoff, Calgary’s Dwaine Carpenter forced Winnipeg returner Jonathan Hefney to fumble and Jon Cornish picked up the loose ball at the Bombers’ 32. Seven plays later, DeAngelis booted a 20-yard field goal to put Calgary up 6-0.

The Bombers went two-and-out on their first drive of the game to give Calgary good field position as Brett Ralph then hauled in a 62-yard bomb by Burris to set up a two-yard TD run by Reynolds, putting Calgary up 13-0.

After DeAngelis kicked his third field goal of the game from 17 yards out, the Calgary defence continued to stymie quarterback Michael Bishop and the Winnipeg offence.

Winnipeg recorded only five first downs in the second quarter, three of them as a result of Calgary penalties. Serna accounted for all of Winnipeg’s scoring in the first half when he kicked a 54-yard field goal at 9:19 of the second quarter.

Reynolds then caught a 17-yard TD pass from Burris to put Calgary up 23-3 in the second.

Following a woeful first half, Winnipeg’s offence got on track early in the second half when Reid ran for an eight-yard touchdown to cap off an 86-yard drive.

Serna then kicked an 18-yard field goal before Calgary’s Dwight Anderson recovered a fumble by Bishop on the Winnipeg 35-yard line. On the next play, Burris threw a 35-yard TD pass to Ryan to put Calgary up 30-13.

Reid scrambled for a one-yard TD run just 55 seconds into the fourth quarter, capping off an 82-yard drive. After Dales booted a 77-yard single for the Stamps, Serna responded with an 18-yard field goal for the Bombers.
