CALGARY -- After losing 35-22 to the host Toronto Argonauts in the 100th Grey Cup last year, linebaker Juwan Simpson says the Calgary Stampeders expect to take the next step and become CFL champions this season. "Were ultimately working for one goal and thats to win the Cup," said Simpson, whos entering his sixth season with the Stamps. "Im a confident person. I think the rest of the guys are just as confident. "Regardless of what happens, we know its a long season. Were going to put our best foot forward week in and week out and see what happens." Veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn, who completed 14-of-27 passes for 222 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in last years Grey Cup game against the Argos, said he definitely wants a shot at redemption. "Even getting there and actually losing the game, it gives you more motivation to get back and win it," Glenn said. "Thats our ultimate goal, but weve got to take it one game at a time." Glenn was thrust into the starters role last season to compensate for starter Drew Tates injury-plagued season. He didnt disappoint, completing 325-of-487 passes for 4,220 yards and 25 touchdown passes in the regular season. His completion rate of 66.7 per cent was the best of his 12 CFL seasons. Although Glenn, who turned 34 on June 12, is slated to back up Tate once again to start the 2013 season, hes keeping a positive attitude and preparing as if he could be called upon for his services at any moment. "Whatever position youre in on this team, you have to be ready to go," Glenn said. "You cant take practices off or days off in meetings and stuff. You have to prepare and prepare as if youre going to play and start. I think thats better to do it that way. It keeps you focused during the game on helping the other guys that are playing out there." Meanwhile, Tate wants to put last years nightmarish season behind him. After guiding the Stamps to a 38-10 win over the Montreal Alouettes in the 2012 season opener at home, Tate dislocated his left shoulder during a Week 2 loss in Toronto. Tate, who completed just 46-of-63 passes for 570 yards and four touchdowns, returned to play in the final two games of the regular season before fracturing a bone near the wrist of his throwing arm in Calgarys West Division semifinal win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Tate has refused to let those two major setbacks from deterring him this season. "If you try to alter your play based on not getting hurt, youre just going to affect your game and youre not going to be playing at the highest level that you can be playing," Tate said. "You just hope that youve got somebody watching over you every time you fall and thats about it." Whether its Tate, Glenn or third-stringer Bo Levi Mitchell at the helm of Calgarys offence, theyll have plenty of weapons at their disposal once again this season. "Im certainly confident in our quarterbacks," said running back Jon Cornish, who tied for the league lead with 11 rushing touchdowns and added two others through the air. Cornish was named the CFLs most outstanding Canadian last season after leading the league with 1,457 rushing yards, which broke Normie Kwongs 56-year-old Canadian single-season rushing record. The Stamps also boast a talented receiving corps which will be led by veteran Nik Lewis (100 catches last year, 1,241 yards and 10 TDs), Marquay McDaniel (53 catches, 744 yards and three TDs), Maurice Price (18 catches, 405 yards and three TDs) and Joe West (24 catches, 353 yards and two TDs). "Im very optimistic," Tate said. "I said this before camp that Ive never been on a team with as much talent at the play-making positions that we have this year. As a quarterback, you cant ask for anything more." Rene Paredes will once again handle the field-goal kicking duties, while Rob Maver is back for his second season as Calgarys primary punter. Both Paredes and Maver were chosen as West Division and CFL all-stars last season. When asked to identify the biggest gain in the off-season for the Stamps, head coach and general manager John Hufnagel responded by pointing to the overall speed of his defensive players during training camp and the pre-season. "I thought overall our defence in general played fast in the two pre-season games," Hufnagel said. "I want that type of speed to continue with areas of improvement." Simpson will be counted upon for his veteran leadership on defence as will fellow linebacker Malik Jackson, defensive backs Brandon Smith and Keon Raymond and defensive lineman Charleston Hughes. "Weve got a lot of vets returning," Simpson said. "Weve got some young guys to come in and help us. I think weve got a good group of guys and Im looking forward to actually getting out there and playing four quarters."

He scored two highlight-reel goals in a three-minute span -- the second on a sideways bicycle kick in the 78th minute -- to give the Whitecaps a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers before a crowd of 20,303 at B.C. Place Stadium. "I thought we played very well, and if we continue to play the same way the next three games well have a very good chance," said Camilo who moved into a tie for second place in MLS scoring with his 17th and 18th goals of the season. "Its disappointing (having to come back), but the game was not over so we tried to attack and we were able to score." With only three games left in the regular season, the Whitecaps (11-11-9) helped keep their flickering playoff hopes alive by obtaining the single point, but with the L.A. Galaxy beating Chivas U.S.A. earlier in the day, the draw dropped Vancouver to six points out of the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Timbers (12-5-14) missed a chance to move into second place in the West despite extending their unbeaten streak to five games. Camilos tying marker capped a string of three goals in as many minutes. The Vancouver strikers two tallies sandwiched one by Portlands Will Johnson. Even Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts was impressed with Camilos second tally. "That was a special goal," said Ricketts with a broad smile even though his club was forced to settle for just one point. Darlington Nagbe scored for Portland in the first half. He and Johnson, the captain of Canadas national mens team, assisted on each others goals. "Were disappointed that we didnt earn three points," said Portland defender Jack Jewsbury. "But at the end of the day, youve got to congratulate Camilo on two unbelievable, world-class goals." Camilos first goal came in the 76th minute as he sent a dipping and diving free kick over a Portland wall and bouncing inside the left post to create a 1-1 tie. But with the crowd still cheering, Johnson fired in a Nagbe pass from the top of the Vancouver 18-yard box. However, moments later, with some in the crowd still groaning, Camilo scored as he went airborne to boot home a pass from Young-Pyo Lee. Darren Mattocks started the play by sending the ball to Lee. "It was a little wild. I havent had a game like that in a while," said Jewsbury, having trouble recalling another one like it. "(There were) some good plays, some unbelievable strikes." Camilo made good on two additional chances after he and second-half substitute Kekuta Manneh were robbed by Ricketts on back-to-back chances in the 75th minute. After foiling Camilo from within 12 yards, Ricketts got up to get his arms on Mannehs shot off the rebound. But the entertaining finish was muted by the fact the Caps still face a difficult battle to secure a second consecutive playoff berth.dddddddddddd "Obviously, youre disappointed that you didnt get all three (points), because I thought we deserved (a win) tonight," said Vancouver captain Jay DeMerit, who had called the game a "must-win" a day earlier. "But a point is a point." The eventful second half contrasted from a quiet opening 45 minutes as the Whitecaps struggled to adjust to lineup changes and the Timbers took their time getting going. Vancouver striker Kenny Miller missed his second straight game with a groin injury. As a result, Mattocks made a rare start. Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie also juggled his lineup by keeping midfielders Russell Teibert and Gershon Koffie on the bench as Matt Watson and Daigo Kobabayashi started in their place. Teibert came on in the second half, but struggled with his crosses. Nagbe opened the scoring in the 41st minute as, left unmarked outside the top of the Vancouver area, he took a pass from Johnson and fired a shot inside the left post beyond the reach of leaping Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted. "It was just a really good strike," said DeMerit. "It was probably 25, 30 yards out. As a defender, youre supposed to close right about then. As he started to wind up, he saw us coming out to get the ball, but it was a great shot, curling away from (Ousted), so he didnt really have much chance to save it." Camilos heroics overshadowed a strong game from Johnson, who showed a strong midfield presence that Vancouver has lacked for most of the season after failing to woo the Toronto native in the off-season before he joined Portland from Real Salt Lake. "(Johnson) is a fantastic talent, a guy that weve counted on a lot this year," said Jewsbury. "Hes probably one of the most talented guys Ive ever played with. a He had a big game." With Wednesdays game in Seattle and home-and-home contests against Colorado to close out the regular season, the Whitecaps will still have a difficult time fulfilling their playoff quest. But, while acknowledging the difficulty, Vancouver goalkeeper Ousted remained optimistic. "We showed great character today, and I think that bodes well for the future," he said. Notes: Mattocks has a difficult decision whether to leave Monday as scheduled for international duty with Jamaicas nation team or travel to Seattle with the Caps. Jamaica has a World Cup qualifying game against the U.S. on Friday. Mattocks said its "50-50" whether he will leave or stay. a During the pre-game ceremonies, players from both teams wore shirts bearing pink ribbons in support of breast cancer research. Some Whitecap players and game officials also wore pink wrist bands, while Ousted wore a pink jersey, shorts and socks, as he has done previously. A pink-striped ball was also used. a Portland goalkeeper Ricketts was cautioned in the 74th minute as he wasted time before attempting a free kick.
