Riders look to snap skid Friday



The Saskatchewan Roughriders look to break a three-game skid that has seen them fall into a second-place tie in the CFL West, when they host the Calgary Stampeders at Mosaic Stadium in Regina Friday night.

The Riders, the defending Grey Cup champions, have fallen on hard times recently, after starting the season 6-0. Injuries have contributed to the slide, which has seen Saskatchewan drop 5 of their last 7 games. Calgary has won 4 straight to move into first in the West with a record of 9-5 for 18 points, 2 points ahead of both the Riders and BC and 4 points ahead of Edmonton. Saskatchewan won in Calgary 22-21 back on August 2nd. The Stamps won in Regina 30-25 five days later.

Wes Cates, who has battled injury problems in recent weeks, hopes to return to the lineup with a big effort on Friday night, his 29th birthday. Cates has rushed for 1,055 yards and 9 touchdowns this season for the Riders. Friday's contest is the 183rd meeting between the two teams since 1950. Calgary has won 95 times, Saskatchewan 80. There have been 8 ties.

Kickoff Friday night is set for 9:00p.m. Central time. The live broadcast, with Rod Pedersen (http://www/rodpedersen.blogspot.com) and Carm Carteri calling the action, can be heard online at http://www.620ckrm.com. The two teams meet for the fourth and final time this season on Monday, October 13th at 3:30p.m. Central time in Calgary.
