Game Notes

Game Summary

The Edmonton Eskimos played the first of two games this week Wednesday night in Toronto at the SkyDome. Coach Lancaster’s high powered defence came in hoping to shut Toronto down in order to move into a tie for second in the Northern Division with the B.C. Lions. A penalty filled first quarter saw very little scoring. Newly acquired punter\kicker Terry Baker scored a single after sending a 30 yard field goal attempt wide. Edmonton countered just before the quarter ended with Sean Fleming making a 45 yard field goal. Edmonton dominated the second quarter scoring 19 points. Punter Glenn Harper sent a 48 yard punt into the end zone for a single. Fleming’s second field goal of the night was off the mark but he scored a single as the ball went through the end zone. The Edmonton offence capitalized on an interception by Darian Hagan. RB Michael Soles carried the ball in from the 2-yard line for the first touchdown of the game. Fleming kicked the convert. After missing his first two, Fleming was out to redeem himself on his third field goal attempt. He succeeded, hitting from 22 yards out. Toronto’s only points of the quarter came as Edmonton punter Glenn Harper took the ball into his own end zone and conceded the safety. Edmonton got one more touchdown before half-time when they brought in DE Malvin Hunter to carry the ball in from the 1-yard line. Fleming’s convert gave Edmonton a 22 to 3 lead going into the locker room for half-time. Edmonton continued to put points on the board in the third quarter. Fleming missed his third field goal, but again, scored a single point. Harper sent another punt into the Toronto end zone to score a single. Toronto’s defence got on the score sheet as LB Don Wilson intercepted a Chris Vargas pass and ran it back 23 yards for the major. Baker kicked the convert. The final scoring of the game came late in the third quarter. Soles capped a drive with a 6 yard touchdown pass reception from Bell. Fleming’s convert gave Edmonton the lead 31 to 10 which they held through the fourth quarter.
