Childs scores game-winner in overtime to end Eskimos' playoff hopes

Jan 9, 2008 - 6:02 PM
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Henri Childs scored his second touchdown of the game in overtime to help the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a 36-29 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday.

The Roughriders rallied from a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit thanks to a 16-yard run by Childs and a 12-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Crandell to Mike Washington with 1:26 remaining.

The win did not mean much for the Roughriders (12-5-0), who have already clinched a playoff berth in the West Division and will host a home playoff game for the first time since 1988.

Edmonton (5-11-1) appeared to have won it in regulation on a 47-yard field goal by Sean Fleming. However, a holding call nullified the kick and the game went to overtime.

In overtime, Childs ran in from two-yards out for the go-ahead score, and the defense stopped Edmonton on a 3rd-and-1 to seal the win.

Stefan LeFors completed 34-of-48 passes for 312 yards with three touchdowns and one interception for Edmonton, which lost its last five games and was eliminated from playoff contention for the second straight season.

Kamau Peterson hauled in nine catches for 125 yards and a score for the Eskimos, who have missed the playoffs for consecutive years for the first time since 1964-65.

Crandell completed 18-of-34 passes for 250 yards with one score and one interception for Saskatchewan, which has won five straight.
