ESKIMOS 27 STAMPEDERS 16

EDMONTON - Mike Reilly threw three touchdown passes in his first full start of the season, including a pair to Adarius Bowman, as the Edmonton Eskimos finally managed to get past their southern rivals, defeating the Calgary Stampeders 27-16 on a rain-soaked Saturday night.

With the win the Eskimos (7-4) snapped a 12-game losing skid extending back four seasons against the Stampeders.

The West Division-leading Stampeders fell to 8-3, seeing a five-game winning streak come to an end.

Edmonton started the scoring on its first possession as Shakir Bell's 41-yard reception set up a 30-yard Sean Whyte field goal.

The Eskimos made it 9-0 late in the opening frame as a Cauchy Muamba interception of a Bo Levi Mitchell pass eventually set up a 14-yard passing strike from Reilly to Bowman. The two-point convert failed.

Calgary got on the board seven minutes into the second when Mitchell found Anthony Parker for a 20-yard passing major.

All the top teams in the CFL have their veteran starting QB's in action.

That looked good on Calgary.

Never thought about who has their starting QB. Interesting. But no surprise I guess.
