17 straight points in the second quarter after Edmonton's Grant Shaw tied the
game with a 47-yard field goal.
Glenn connected with Marquay McDaniel for a 29-yard touchdown, Paredes nailed
a 32-yarder and Jamar Wall returned a blocked punt to put Calgary up 20-3.

missed a 45-yard attempt.

hit the left upright.
The Stampeders have won eight straight meetings between the Alberta rivals and
seven in a row at Edmonton ... Eskimos wide receiver Fred Stamps caught seven
