Well it was another entertaining week in the CFL. Week five got underway early with a Wednesday night game between the Montreal Alouettes and the Ottawa RedBlacks. With Montreal fresh off of a big win against the Stampeders and the RedBlacks going winless in their first four games, it looked as though it was in the Alouettes favour. However, this is the CFL and anything is possible. Ottawa jumped out to an early lead and was able to hang on despite a tough second half. The RedBlacks got their first win of the season with a final score of 24-19. The undefeated Edmonton Eskimos had a tougher time than they expected on Thursday as they played the winless Ti-Cats. Mike Reilly and the Eskimos rallied for 18 points in the fourth quarter to come back and stay perfect on the year with a 31-28 win over Hamilton. Friday Night Football was all offence between the Lions and Bombers with a total of 87 points being scored despite both teams having been shut out in at least one quarter. The score was 27-21 for the Lions at the half but the Bombers came out flying, scoring 21 points in the third while shutting out BC. Then in the final quarter it was the Lions turn to come alive as they put up 18 points while shutting out the Bombers to take the win by a score of 45-42 and improve to 4-1 on the season. Saturday night went as expected with the Calgary Stampeders beating the Saskatchewan Roughriders by a score of 27-10. After a 3-1 week my picks improve to 11-8-1 on the year. Picks for week six winners are Winnipeg, BC, Calgary, and Saskatchewan.
Hey my name is Tyler Janzen and I am from Martensville Saskatchewan. I graduated from Martensville High School in 2016 (Go Royals!) and completed my broadcast training at Western Academy Broadcasting College in Saskatoon the next spring. My passion was sports all throughout my childhood, playing basically every sport the schools had to offer as well as minor hockey, football, and baseball. Once I outgrew minor sports I helped coach minor hockey and football in Martensville. I’ve always been a die-hard sports fan and enjoy cheering on the Calgary Flames and the Stampeders, despite being born and raised in Saskatchewan. My love for sports was what got me into Journalism, being able to write about what I love just seemed to make sense!
