It was a milestone night for veteran Calgary Stampeders slotback Nik Lewis and one the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will hope to soon forget.
Lewis had seven catches, including his 700th career grab, for 131 yards in the 44-3 Stampeders (7-4) win at McMahon Stadium, which makes him just the 16th player all-time to reach the 10,000 career receiving yards mark. He now sits in the 15th spot on the CFL's all-time receiving list with 10,054 yards.
Jon Cornish ran for two touchdowns and LaMarcus Coker added another on the ground, while Calgary backup quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell completed his first CFL touchdown pass to Rob Cote on a trick play in the first quarter and Johnny Forzani caught a TD pass from starter Kevin Glenn in the fourth. Rene Paredes added a pair of field goals as Calgary wins a fourth straight game.
The Blue Bombers (2-9) have now lost four in a row. The Stampeders visit the Saskatchewan Roughriders next Sunday.
