ESKIMOS 23 ALOUETTES 12

Canadian Press
EDMONTON - Deon Lacey had a six-yard interception return touchdown with less than a minute to play as the Edmonton Eskimos snapped a three-game losing skid with a sloppy 23-12 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday.

The defending Grey Cup champion Eskimos improved to 3-4. Montreal lost its second game in a row to drop to 2-5.

The Eskimos looked great out of the gate on their opening drive, however it fell apart at the end of it as receiver Derel Walker fumbled the ball off of a Montreal defender at the one-yard line and turned it over. The Alouettes ended up conceding a two-point safety.

Edmonton made good on its second possession, as quarterback Mike Reilly plunged in from one yard out, although the convert kick failed.

The Eskimos took an 11-0 lead early in the second quarter, settling for a 24-yard Sean Whyte field goal after an Adarius Bowman touchdown was disallowed following a Montreal challenge.

The Als responded with 44- and 33-yard field goals from newcomer Anthony Fera to make it 11-6 at the half.
