Roughriders use dominant defense to crush Eskimos

Oct 26, 2008 - 6:15 AM REGINA, Saskatchewan (Ticker) -- Wes Cates ran for a pair of scores and Renauld Williams returned an interception for a touchdown, helping the Saskatchewan Roughriders crush the Edmonton Eskimos, 55-9, on Saturday.

Corey Grant, Weston Dressler, and Andy Fantuz each caught a TD pass for the Roughriders (11-6), who moved into sole possession of second place in the West Division. Meanwhile, the Eskimos (9-8) will face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the East semifinal on November 8.

Saskatchewan took advantage of Ricky Ray's struggles to grab a 33-6 halftime lead. Kitwana Jones returned Ray's fumble 54 yards for a touchdown, and Williams ran back an interception 42 yards for a score.

Ray was 10-of-18 for 99 yards and a pair of interceptions before being replaced by Jason Maas midway through the third quarter. Mass was 6-of-16 for 57 yards.
