Ray leads Eskimos to win and four-way tie atop West

Oct 11, 2008 - 7:19 AM VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Ricky Ray threw for 311 yards and rushed for a touchdown, leading the Edmonton Eskimos to a 27-20 victory over the B.C. Lions on Friday.

Ray completed 23-of-35 passes and Calvin McCarty and Mathieu Bertrand each added a rushing TD as the Eskimos (9-6) moved into a four-way tie atop the West Division.

Edmonton clinched at least a crossover playoff spot when the Toronto Argonauts dropped a 25-16 decision to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in an East Division matchup.

Eskimos wideout Kelly Campbell led all receivers with 128 yards. Kamau Peterson was Ray's favorite target, hauling in seven catches for 72 yards.

Jarious Jackson hit Bret Anderson with a six-yard pass for the Lions' only offensive touchdown with 4:10 left in the fourth quarter. B.C. cornerback Lavar Glover intercepted a pass and returned it for a score for the only other TD as the Lions fell to 9-6.
