Daniels caught a 21-yard pass from quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell just over the line in the end zone in the second quarter. The Notre Dame alum found the mark again in the third quarter on a 38-yard toss to push the Stamps’ lead to 16-7 after Paredes’ convert.

On Thursday August 24th against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, receiver Nik Lewis set a new CFL all-time record for career receptions, passing the previous record of 1,029 set by new member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame Geroy Simon.
Lewis caught his 1,030th reception to break the record on a six-yard pass from quarterback Darian Durant during the fourth quarter on a crucial third-down conversion. He added another to set the new record at 1,031.
The 14-year CFL veteran collected 88 receiving yards and 47 yards after carry on 11 targets in Thursday’s game.
