Ray, Eskimos rout Blue Bombers

Oct 5, 2008 - 8:04 AM
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Ricky Ray threw two touchdown passes as the Edmonton Eskimos posted a 36-22 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday.

Maurice Mann and Andrew Nowacki each caught a score for the Eskimos (8-6), who outscored the Blue Bombers, 31-2, in the second period to take control of the game.

Trailing by 12 points after the first quarter, Edmonton needed to shift momentum and did so by faking a punt. Kicker Noel Prefontaine completed a 19-yard pass to Calvin McCarty, which led to Ray's 19-yard connection with Mann that cut the deficit to 14-9 and set the stage for the Eskimo outburst.

Edmonton took its first lead on Tristan Jackson's 67-yard punt return for a touchdown and never looked back.

Kevin Glenn was 8-of-13 for 147 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for Winnipeg (5-9).
