WEEK 2 | BOUNCING BACK STRONG
After a thrilling Week 2 matchup against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are determined to bounce back from their loss and continue their pursuit of success in the 2023 CFL season.
ROUGHRIDERS COACH LOOKS FOR THE POSITIVE SIDE OF WEEK 2 HOME LOSS
Last Friday, the Riders hosted their rival, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, in the team’s home opener. Most of the way, it was a tight contest, but ultimately the Bombers won 45-27. Head coach Craig Dickenson acknowledged Tuesday that some corrections need to be made, but he’s upbeat about how his team battled Winnipeg — arguably the best team in the CFL.
“The attitude of the guys was good. Our physicality was good … It was a good game in terms of back-and-forth, we seemed to answer — at least early in the game,” Dickenson said after Tuesday’s practice in Regina.
“The stick-to-it-ness of the group was tested, and we did alright.”
Multiple offensive players registered dazzling performances Friday night: quarterback Trevor Harris, who had been a game-time decision due to a hip pointer, threw for 413 yards and three touchdowns — each of which was caught in the end zone by Samuel Emilus. Wide receiver Tevin Jones also balled out, leading the Riders in catches and finishing with 121 yards receiving in Week 2.
