EDMONTON - Marquay McDaniel's touchdown catch in the final minute proved to be the difference as the Calgary Stampeders extended their winning streak to seven games, sweeping their home-and-home series with a 25-22 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday.

It also didn't hurt that Edmonton kicker Chris Milo missed a 47-yarder as time expired which would've tied the game.

The Stampeders remain in first place in the CFL with a record of 9-1-1.

Calgary head coach Dave Dickenson said the game felt like a slug-fest.

"There was nothing pretty about it,'' he said. "There was a lot of fight from both teams, maybe even a little over the edge a bit at times. Neither team gave up and kept on fighting. We'll take the two points and win No. 9 is big for us.

"To sweep this series and take the season series against Edmonton is big.''

Edmonton has dropped four straight games to fall to 7-4.

"I'll just say this, losing sucks,'' said Eskimos head coach Jason Maas. "There's no other way to put it, losing sucks whether you lose by one, 40, or two. That's all I can say about it.''

Both teams are back at it next Saturday, when the Eskimos travel to Toronto and the Stampeders play host to the B.C. Lions.

Notes: The game marked the return of Eskimos all-star receiver Walker, who rejoined the team this week after he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Walker was CFL rookie of the year in 2015.

Has anybody noticed that coach Maas antics on the sidelines is slowly filtering into his players taking really dumb penalties?

What this game combined with Calgarys loss in Montreal. Showed other teams what is needed to take away Calgarys offence.
This game also showed the actions of a Juvenille man in a HC position.
As long as I've seen Jason Mass in the CFL he has always had serious anger issues. I've seen him completely out of control many times. As a player, positional coach, O.C. And now sadly even as a Head Coach. Jason Mass and ex EE GM Ed Hervey were a perfect mix on the EE staff. 2 hot heads! Now Jason faces that anger all alone. As Hervey felt he was bigger than the team. Looks like Mass is right there with Hervey.
Anger is by nature a painful state of mind and when that anger is uncontrolled it can destroy just about anything.
Women and children that have faced Violence innthe home. Certainly should not have to witness this when they watch a CFL game.
I sure hope new Commissioner Randy Ambrose digs down deep and fines Jason ass really hard for behaviour unbecoming of a CFL Coach. With a warning of termination if it happens again. You can be angry all you want. Just do not show outbursts of Violence.
I'm sure it was the boiling point for Jason. When he felt he was robbed by Command Center on the P.I. challenge. The right call was made and Jason showed a real disdain or should I say hatred to that decision. Making it look 100% that he thought it was a BS call. Which is the same (actually worse) as calling out a ref after the game.
Grow up Mass and be a role model. Not an angry beast on the EE sidelines.
EMBARASSING for EE fans and front office.

Mass doesn't look much different than Austin on the sidelines. Both demonstrate the behavior of emotionally immature men.
