Game Notes

Game Summary

The two teams tied for 2nd place in the CFL Western division met on Friday night as the B.C. Lions played host to the Edmonton Eskimos in front of 35,654 fans at B.C. Place. The winner of the game would move into another tie if Saskatchewan won their game against Toronto. Edmonton opened with two scores in the 1st quarter as K Sean Fleming kicked an 18-yard field goal and WR Eddie Brown caught a 14-yard pass from QB Damon Allen to give the Eskimos a 10-0 lead after the 1st quarter. In the 2nd quarter, B.C. got on the board when RB Cory Philpot scored on a 2-yard rush to cut the Edmonton lead to 10-7 but then the Eskimos went on a scoring tear as they put another 20 points on the board before the half. Fleming kicked another FG and Allen scored a major as he went into the end zone on a 1-yard effort. Following Allen’s TD, the Eskimos struck again when Allen hit WR Jim Sandusky for a score on a 16-yard pass to put Edmonton up 27-7 which Fleming added to when he kicked a 33-yard FG. In the 2nd half, Edmonton opened where it left off as Fleming hit a 23-yarder and then added a single before B.C. put their 2nd score of the day on the board as Cory Philpot took in a 4-yard rush for his 2nd of the day. The 4th quarter was all Edmonton as they scored 2 TDs and a FG when Allen ran 32 yards for one TD while CB John Holland had an interception return for another and Fleming kicked his 6th FG of the day, this one from 38 yards to make the final score 54-14 for the Eskimos.
