CALGARY — Brett Ralph was held to a single catch, but it was a big one for the Calgary Stampeders.

Ralph caught a five-yard touchdown pass from Henry Burris in overtime to secure a 44-44 tie for against the Roughriders, as both teams remained tied atop the CFL West with 8-6-1 records.

“What better situation for him then to make the biggest play of the game and that was to seal the deal and tie the game up,” said Burris, who completed 23-of-34 passes for 285 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. “A guy like Ralphie, he’s an even-keeled player. He always plays hard for you and you know he’s going to make the plays when they count. He definitely did that in that situation.”

Calgary scored first in overtime as Burris tossed a five-yard pass to Rob Cote in the end zone, but the Riders came right back with a one-yard touchdown run by Chris Szarka, his third score of the game.

Chris Getzlaf then caught a short pass from Saskatchewan quarterback Darian Durant and broke a tackle before rambling 35 yards into the end zone to give the Riders the lead.

That set the stage for Ralph to make a diving catch in the end zone to force the tie in front of 38,623 fans at McMahon Stadium.

“Henry rolled out and made just a picture perfect throw,” Ralph said. “It’s nice to score at that time but it’s too bad we couldn’t take care of it in regulation and come out with the win.”
