The Stampeders (6-6) have won four of their last five games, while the Redblacks (2-10) are on their second five-game losing streak of the season.

The night was short-lived for the Redblacks pack, Brendan Gillanders.

The Ottawa native was playing his 100th CFL game, but suffered an ankle injury while making a tackle on the game’s kickoff. He did not return.

Bo Levi Mitchell completed 22 of 29 passes for 242 yards for the Stampeders, while Carey had 103 rushing yards.

Caleb Evans completed 15 of 28 passes for 173 yards for the Redblacks.

The first half was hotly contested as the Stampeders entered the break with a 13-10 lead, but they clearly had momentum on their side.

Ottawa opened the scoring at 5:23 on a 15-yard field goal from Lewis Ward, but those points were tremendously helped by a 50-yard catch and run from Evans to Nate Behar.

Parades tied the game 3-3 with a 43-yard field goal at 10:03, and then an 11-yard touchdown reception by Kenny Stafford with 18 seconds left in the first quarter gave the Redblacks a lead of 10-3 after conversion.

That was the end of the first-half good news for Ottawa, as they only got two first downs in the second quarter, one on penalty, and were outscored 10-0.

Carey scored on a three-yard run at 2:25 and Parades kicked a 27-yard field goal at 10:18 for a 13-10 lead at Calgary.

The Stampeders carried that momentum into the third quarter, forcing the Redblacks to make two and out on the first drive before moving the ball 44 yards and ending on a 28-yard field goal by Parades at 4:28.

Ward recovered those three points with a 24-yard field goal with just over four minutes left in the fourth.

The Stampeders closed the quarter with a 15-yard pass from Jake Maier, who replaced Mitchell at quarterback for that play and three other plays from close range, to Jorden and the Stampeders took a 23-13 lead in the quarter.

It was Maier’s only pass in the game.
