Game Notes

Game Summary

The Eskimos, led by new QB Kerwin Bell, wasted no time in getting on the board in this one as they marched down the field in their opening drive, capping it off with a 1 yard plunge by Michael Soles. The Sean Fleming convert gave the Esks a 7-0 lead 2:53 into the contest. Less than six minutes later Bell hooked up with RB Lucius Floyd for a 72 yard pass and run TD at 8:31 of the 1st frame. RB Reggie Barnes got the Argonauts on the board with just 2 seconds remaining as he scampered in from 13 yards out. The Wayne Lammle convert made the score 14-7 in favour of the Eskimos at the end of one quarter. The Argos pulled even at 2:48 of the second frame as Barnes scored his second TD of the game, this one from just 1 yard out. Lammle added the convert to make the score 14-14. Fleming then added a 37 yard FG at 8:58 to recapture the lead for Edmonton. A Lucius Floyd 3 yard TD run with 24 seconds left on the clock, coupled with the Fleming convert made the score 24-14 in favour of the Esks at the end of one half of play. P Glenn Harper gave up a 2-point safety at 6:28 of the 3rd quarter, but this was all of the scoring Toronto could muster as Bell went on to carry it in himself from 1 yard away at 11:19 to make the score 31-16 at the end of 3 quarters of play. Bell then repeated this TD at 6:46 of the 4th quarter before Kent Austin hooked up with Darrick Branch for a 61 yard TD. Floyd rounded out the scoring as he ran in from 3 yards out, this along with the Fleming convert made the final Edmonton 45, Toronto 23.
