In an intense back-and-forth battle, the Riders emerged victorious against the Stampeders with a game-clinching interception by defensive back Nic Marshall in the end zone. The mood on the sideline was elated as head coach Craig Dickenson expressed his excitement about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
“I’ve been part of a lot of exciting games, and that ranks right up there with the best of them,” said Dickenson, reflecting on the thrilling win.
Quarterback Trevor Harris, who had a slow start but picked up momentum in the second half, contributed significantly to the offensive success. He completed 20 of 30 passing attempts, amassing 273 yards through the air and orchestrating crucial drives.
“We did a lot of good things out there offensively after we started slow,” Harris commented. “We started cooking and getting the ball down the field and moving it.”
Running back Jamal Morrow played a crucial role, tallying 133 yards on the ground and providing a solid running threat that complemented the passing game.
“If you don’t have the threat of being able to run the football, then there is no threat of that, and the play-action game can get worse,” acknowledged Harris. “He’s one of the elite ones, and we’re really lucky to have him.”
