TORONTO -- A career-best accomplishment earned Jon Cornish two CFL weekly awards Monday.

The veteran running back was named the league's offensive player and Canadian player of the week after leading the Calgary Stampeders past the previously unbeaten Saskatchewan Roughriders 42-27.

The native of New Westminster, B.C., rushed for 175 yards and scored a career-high four TDs in the game.

Toronto Argonauts defensive back Alonzo Lawrence was named the top defensive player. He recovered two fumbles, forced another and had two tackles in a 38-13 win over the Montreal Alouettes.

Teammate Chad Owens captured special-teams honours. The CFL's outstanding player last season returned a missed field goal 118 yards for a TD and finished the contest with 247 all-purpose yards.
