The Calgary Stampeders did not score a touchdown Sunday, but they didn’t need to.
Rene Paredes kicked five field goals while the Stampeder defense shut down a potent Saskatchewan offense as they clinched a playoff spot with a hard-fought 15-9 win.
The Riders tried late to get a victory, but Brandon Bridge fumbled after being sacked in Calgary territory with less than a minute to go to preserve the win.
Bridge was in the game after Kevin Glenn re-injured his throwing hand. After the game, head coach Chris Jones said the injury was not a serious one, and Glenn would be his starter Friday in Ottawa.
The status of receiver Naaman Roosevelt for that game is not known though. Roosevelt had to be helped off the field after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit in the 2nd quarter. He did not return.
Saskatchewan is now 6-6 on the season.
