Points on the Flag: Week 10
I’m currently out of the country but that doesn’t mean I can’t acknowledge the great Canadian performances in the week that was in the CFL.
11. Cameron Judge, WLB, Saskatchewan Roughriders (UCLA)
Stats: 4 Defensive Tackles, 1 Special Team’s Tackle
The former first round pick had the best defensive game of his career as his team toppled the mighty Stampeders. His play helped stifle Calgary’s running game and kept Bo Levi in check.
10. Brad Sinopoli, SB, Ottawa Redblacks (Ottawa)
Stats: 3 Receptions, 51 Yards
Sinopoli played a smaller role in Ottawa’s victory over Winnipeg but was reliable as usual when called upon.
9. Alex Singleton, MLB, Calgary Stampeders (Montana State)
Stats: 5 Defensive Tackles, 1 Forced Fumble
Calgary’s dynamic Middle Linebacker continued to play with fire despite fighting a losing battle. His presence in the middle was a huge reason why Saskatchewan was forced to settle for field goals over touchdowns.
8. Drew Wolitarsky, WR, Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Minnesota)
Stats: 5 Receptions, 57 Yards
Its been a while since Wolitarsky appeared on this list but he provided the Bombers with a number of key first downs in a loss to Ottawa.
7. Chris Ackie, WLB, Montreal Alouettes (Wilfrid Laurier)
Stats: 8 Defensive Tackles
Faced with the explosive Eskimos offence, Ackie once again spread his presence across the field in a losing effort.
6. Anthony Coombs, SB, Toronto Argonauts (Manitoba)
Stats: 1 Carry, 5 Yards, 3 Receptions, 56 Yards, 1 Touchdown
The return of Anthony Coombs lived up to all the hype. He showcased his ability to turn short throws into long gains and shook coverage for a touchdown on a beautiful route.
5. Evan Johnson, LG, Ottawa Redblacks (Saskatchewan)
Stats: Blocked for 139 Team Rushing Yards
The decision to start Johnson over Jon Gott was controversial but Johnson rewarded his coaches with an exceptional performance that dominated the Bombers defensive front and made huge holes in the running game.
4. Andrew Harris, RB, Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Vancouver Island Raiders)
Stats: 12 Carries, 72 Yards, 3 Receptions, 6 Yards, 1 Touchdown
Few things went right for the Bombers against Ottawa but Harris continued to battle and was their only effective weapon for stretches of the game.
3. Brett Lauther, K, Saskatchewan Roughriders (Saint Mary’s)
Stats: 6/6 Field Goals Made, 43 Yard Longest, 5 Kick Offs, 64 Yard Average
Saskatchewan struggled to put the ball in the end-zone offensively but Lauther’s steady foot allowed them to run up the score against the Stamps.
2. Bo Lokombo, WLB, BC Lions (Oregon)
Stats: 10 Defensive Tackles, 1 Special Teams’ Tackle
Lokombo was BC’s best defensive player against the Argos and made plays all over the field, allowing the Lions to keep the game close.
1. Henoc Muamba, MLB, Montreal Alouettes (St. Francis Xavier)
Stats: 12 Defensive Tackles, 1 Sack
Muamba continues to fight the losing battle to keep Montreal in games and he logged his best performance yet against Edmonton, with a whopping dozen tackles and a sack.
