Ray helps Eskimos rally past Blue Bombers

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:10 PM WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Ticker) -- Ricky Ray and the Edmonton Eskimos found satisfaction, while Milt Stegall continues to remain in neutral.

Ray completed 25-of-40 attempts for 214 yards and two touchdowns as the Eskimos rallied to defeat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 19-15, on Friday.

Kamau Peterson caught a nine-yard TD pass from Ray for the go-ahead score and Ron McClendon broke off a key 47-yard run during the 82-yard, game-winning drive for Edmonton (1-1-1), which earned its first win of the season and just its second in nine visits here since 2007.

The game also was notable for what didn't happen.

Stegall, a slotback for Winnipeg, entered needing one touchdown to break the all-time league record of 137 he shares with former running backs Mike Pringle and George Reed.

The 13-year veteran was kept out of the end zone, however, finishing with six catches for 61 yards for the Blue Bombers (1-1-1), who played toa 39-39 tie with the Eskimos in the first week of the season.

Winnipeg took a 15-12 lead midway through the final period, when defensive lineman Jon Oosterhuis joined the offensive set and caught a five-yard TD pass from Kevin Glenn. But Edmonton responded late in the game.

The Eskimos needed just six plays as Ray went 4-for-4 on the drive that concluded when he connected with Peterson with 3:20 left. McClendon's burst set up the winning score.

Glenn was 26-of-41 for 294 yards and one interception, but his final two passes from the Edmonton 28-yard line fell incomplete.
