Eskimos hand Roughriders second straight loss

Aug 22, 2008 - 6:32 AM
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- A.J. Harris rushed for 189 yards and a touchdown on Thursday, propelling the Edmonton Eskimos to a 27-10 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

After the Roughriders stormed out to a 10-0 lead midway through the opening quarter, the Eskimos started their run of 27 unanswered points as time expired in the first with a 36-yard scamper into the end zone by Harris.

Following a stop on the next possession, Edmonton capped a 72-yard drive with an eight-yard TD pass from Ricky Ray to Kamau Peterson, putting the Eskimos ahead for good, 14-10.

Noel Prefontaine kicked a nine-yard field goal for a 17-10 advantage at the half before converting a 42-yard attempt early in the third quarter to double the lead.

After recording a single early in the final quarter, Prefontaine capped the scoring with field goals of 33 and 12 yards to account for the final score.

It was the second loss in a row after a perfect 6-0 start for Saskatchewan (6-2), which is just one game in front of Edmonton (5-3) in the West Division.

Ray finished 17-of-26 for 195 yards and an interception, while Marcus Crandell went 7-of-24 for 134 yards and a score for the Roughriders.
