ESKIMOS 29 LIONS 23

EDMONTON - Mike Reilly engineered a thrilling late comeback and tossed a pair of touchdown passes as the Edmonton Eskimos won their third game in a row, defeating the visiting B.C. Lions 29-23 on Saturday.

The Eskimos completed their comeback with two minutes remaining as Derel Walker made a huge 22-yard catch in the end zone on a pass from Reilly, who then took in the two-point convert himself.

The Eskimos (9-4) remain two points behind Calgary for first place in the West Division.

It was the third loss in a row for the Lions, who dropped to 4-8.

The Lions took a 7-0 lead with four minutes left in the first as Jonathon Jennings, making his first pro start at quarterback, completed a 25-yard touchdown pass to Lavelle Hawkins.

After forcing the Esks to concede a safety, the Lions came back for more as Shaq Murray-Lawrence plunged in from the one-yard line.
