Eskimos withstand fourth-quarter comeback attempt by Tiger-Cats

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:32 PM
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Rick Ray threw a pair of touchdown passes and the Edmonton Eskimos bent but did not break in the fourth quarter en route to a 19-17 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday.

Sean Fleming added a field goal and a pair of singles for the Eskimos (3-3-1), who halted a two-game slide.

With Edmonton trailing, 8-4, Ray connected with Andrew Nowacki for a nine-yard touchdown with 37 seconds remaining in the second quarter, putting the Eskimos ahead for good. Less than 7 1/2 minutes into the third, Ray found Kamau Peterson from seven yards out, increasing the lead to 18-8.

Following a late single in the third by the Eskimos, the Tiger-Cats attempted to rally in the final period. Jesse Lumsden scored on a one-yard run at 5:33 and Nick Setta booted a 27-yard field goal with 2:02 remaining, drawing Hamilton within 19-17.

The Tiger-Cats (1-6) continued to apply the pressure, beginning a potential game-winning drive with 62 seconds to go. But Chris Bauman dropped a pass while wide-open and failed to make a catch on fourth down as Edmonton got away with a pass interference infraction and held on for the win.
