Late TD by McCarty pushes Eskimos past Tiger-Cats

Sep 14, 2008 - 6:30 AM
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Calvin McCarty ran for a 21-yard touchdown with 59 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, giving the Edmonton Eskimos a 38-33 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday.

The run by McCarty, who gained 72 yards overall on nine carries, capped a wild contest in which three interceptions were returned for scores.

Edmonton's Jason Goss picked off Casey Printers on Hamilton's first offensive play and ran 50 yards for a touchdown. Goss duplicated the feat just over eight minutes into the third quarter, returning his second interception 94 yards to give the Eskimos (7-4) a 28-20 advantage.

Goss set a team record for most interception return yards with 144 and added a third pick later in the third to match the club mark.

Hamilton got back within a point 25 seconds into the fourth, when Geoff Tisdale intercepted a pass by Ricky Ray and ran 62 yards for a TD. After Noel Prefontaine kicked a 21-yard field goal at 5:04, Nick Setta booted a pair just 4 1/2 minutes apart to give the Tiger-Cats (2-9) a 33-31 advantage.

Setta finished with four field goals.

Printers, who tossed a total of four interceptions, completed 14-of-30 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns to Prechae Rodriguez. He also gained 125 yards on 11 carries for Hamilton, which lost its fourth straight game and first under Marcel Bellefuille.

Formerly the team's offensive coordinator, Bellefuille was promoted after Charlie Taaffe was dismissed during the week.

Despite also having four passes picked off, Ray was 23-of-35 for 355 yards and one touchdown while also running for a score. Kelly Campbell made five receptions for 154 yards and a TD.
