What Did You Miss Thursday?

--The Calgary Stampeders got some momentum from a big goal-line stand as they beat Ottawa 24-14 in Thursday night CFL play.  The Stamps are now 3-0 on the season. 

--Regina Pats goalie Max Paddock is heading to San Jose. The Sharks have invited Paddock to their development camp which starts Tuesday. 

--Canada's Brooke Henderson is a stroke back of the lead at the K-P-M-G Women's P-G-A Championship. The Smiths Falls, Ontario, native shot a 5-under 67 in the first round to sit tied for second with Jessica Korda, Jaye Marie Green and Brittany Altomore, just behind South Korea's Sung Hyun Park, who was bogey-free. Henderson was the 2016 KPMG winner and the runner-up last year. She will be in Regina in August for the CP Canadian Women's Open at the Wascana. 

--Colombia is moving on in the World Cup and Senegal is out, the first team to get eliminated on a new tiebreaker that punishes squads each time their players pick up yellow or red cards. Yerry Mina scored on a header in the 74th minute to give Colombia a 1-0 win over the Senegalese. Japan beat out Senegal for the second spot and Belgium reached the last 16 as group winners with a 1-0 victory over England. The Three Lions also move on.

--The Boston Red Sox have acquired utility player Steve Pearce and cash considerations from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for minor-league infielder Santiago Espinal. Pearce, 35, completes the AL East cycle after joining the Red Sox. He previously played for the Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, and Tampa Bay Rays.  The veteran slugger owns a .291/.349/.519 slash line in 26 games this season and has a knack for hitting left-handed pitching
