Jan 9, 2008 - 5:42 PM
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Ricky Ray not only shot for the moon, he eclipsed it.

Ray threw five touchdown passes and overtook Warren Moon for the franchise record for passing yards as the Edmonton Eskimos rolled to a 47-28 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday.

Entering a mere 151 yards shy of Moon's club mark of 21,228, Ray claimed the record in the first quarter, tossing TD passes of 62 yards to Jason Tucker and 28 yards to Kamau Peterson in the process. He also connected with Andrew Nowacki, T.J. Acree and Mike Maurer, finishing 20-of-29 for 322 yards with one interception.

Tucker hauled in 10 passes for 217 yards, Tyler Ebell gained 75 yards on 11 carries and Jason Goss had two interceptions for Edmonton (4-6-1), which held a 31-7 lead at halftime.

Montreal's Marcus Brady completed 8-of-19 passes for 142 yard and a touchdown with two interceptions before being replaced by Jason Maas, who went 8-of-11 for 93 yards with one pick.

Eric Deslauriers caught a 38-yard TD, Mark Estelle returned an interception 33 yards for a score and Jarrett Payton had a pair of one-yard touchdown runs for the Alouettes (6-5).
