      PREVIEW
      BOMBERS, RIDERS EYE LABOUR DAY CLASSIC CROWN


      REGINA — There will a little bit more on the line when the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers face off on Sunday at Regina’s new Mosaic Stadium.

      The Labour Classic between the prairie provinces is a game that players and fans alike mark on their calendars as a highlight of the regular season.

      Winnipeg and Saskatchewan are two teams that have been trending upwards in recent weeks, adding even more intrigue to the annual showdown.

      The Bombers picked up a victory in a double overtime thriller against the Montreal Alouettes in Week 10, coming away from Percival Molson Stadium with a 34-31 win.

      Bombers pivot Matt Nichols threw for 227 yards with three touchdowns passes and an interception. Clarence Denmark was on the receiving end of two of those passes, one of them coming in overtime, to lift the Bombers to their fifth straight win and their seventh of the season.

      On defence, Chris Randle had a par of interceptions while Taylor Loffler racked up nine tackles.

      The Bombers and Riders went down to the wire in Week 2, but it was Winnipeg that came out on top with a 43-40 overtime win. Bombers running back Andrew Harris says that both teams have improved since that first meeting.

      “When you look at the film, [the Riders] don’t do too much different [compared to first game]. I just think now they’re making more plays,” Harris told BlueBombers.com. “They’ve come together. They had a lot of new pieces on their defence, on offence… they’re just finding a way to come together now.

      “It’s definitely going to be a challenge for us. Obviously it was [in Week 2], but I think we’re a different team too from [then]. You build, you get better and better. It will be interesting to see how it’s going to play out once it’s all said and done.”

      Receiver Weston Dressler will be back in the lineup for the Bombers on Sunday. The 32-year-old has not played since Week 6 when he left a game against the Alouettes with a lower body injury. Dressler was the team’s leading receiver before being sidelined for four games.

      The Roughriders picked up where they left off prior to their bye week, defeating the Edmonton Eskimos 54-31 at Commonwealth Stadium.

      Saskatchewan received offensive contributions from a number of players as Naaman Roosevelt, Cameron Marshall and Bakari Grant each had receiving touchdowns while Vernon Adams added a rushing major. Special teams also added to the scoreboard when Willie Jefferson picked up his own blocked punt and ran it into the end zone.

      Kevin Glenn completed 19 of 31 passes for 240 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

      The Riders’ defence was equally as impressive, holding Eskimos pivot Mike Reilly to just 160 yards in the air with no touchdown passes. Kacy Rodgers and Jovon Johnson each had a pick-six in the win to add to Saskatchewan’s dominance on the scoreboard.

      The victory was the first of the season for the Riders on the road. Saskatchewan is riding high heading into the Labour Day Classic, coming off of back-to-back blowout victories that saw the Riders score a combined 95 points compared to their opponents’ 39 points.

      The Riders hope that they can carry that momentum forward into Sunday. Glenn says that the Labour Day Classic is a special game for a number of reasons.

      “I think it’s the excitement and the build-up that goes into it,” Kevin Glenn told Riderville.com. “The fact that we’re playing Winnipeg, a close province team in the prairies. The tradition, the history behind it. I think all that kind of stuff plays into it… when you have the league in existence as long as it’s been and you play so many games, it continues that rich tradition.”

      Depsite chatter that he may make his 2017 debut this week, Chad Owens will not play in the Labour Day Classic. Owens said earlier in the week that he was mentally preparing as if he would be in the lineup on Sunday. Owens started the season on the Riders’ six-game injured list because of a foot injury that he suffered last season that forced him to miss his last six games with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

      By The Numbers

      5 – Win streak for the Bombers heading into Week 11

      12 – Turnovers forced by the Riders’ defence in their last two games

      16 – Passing touchdowns for Kevin Glenn this season, third overall in the league.

      23– Straight starts that Matt Nichols has made for the Bombers. The last quarterback to do that in Winnipeg was Kevin Glenn between 2006 and 2008.

      The Skinny

      The Bombers and Riders are two of the CFL’s hottest teams heading into this Labour Day Classic matchup. It is the first game of a home-and-home series, as the two teams travel back to Winnipeg in Week 12 for the Banjo Bowl.

      While the Bombers’ offence has been dominant for most of this season, boasting a league-high 34.2 points per game, their defence has struggled. Winnipeg’s defence ranks second-last in yards given up per game (410.4) and points per game (30.9). It could spell trouble against a Saskatchewan squad that has been on an offensive surge the past two games,

      A win for the Bombers would move them into first place in the West, at least temporarily, while the Riders are trying to keep pace for a playoff spot and are currently at the bottom of the division with a 4-4 record.

      Kickoff is slated for 4:00 p.m. ET and can be followed live via CFL.ca Game Tracker and seen on TSN and ESPN 3.

          RECAP
          OFFENSIVE OUTBURST: RIDERS OVERPOWER BOMBERS FOR THIRD STRAIGHT WIN


          REGINA — The Saskatchewan Roughriders put on an offensive display at new Mosaic Stadium on Sunday, defeating the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 38-24 in the annual Labour Day Classic.

          The Riders jumped out to an early lead by scoring 34 points in the first half and never looked back.

          Kevin Glenn tossed three touchdown passes and threw for 386 yards in the win while Bakari Grant led all receivers with 139 yards on seven catches.

          The Riders were the first on the board, notching a field goal on the opening drive of the game. Tyler Crapigna split the uprights from 50 yards out for his longest successful attempt of the season.

          The Blue Bombers responded on their first drive with a Justin Medlock field goal from 39 yards out to tie the game up a three apiece midway through the first quarter.

          Saskatchewan would pull ahead before the quarter was over. Kevin Glenn hit Roosevelt in stride and the Riders’ leading receiver ran untouched into the end zone for a 53-yard major.

          The Bombers didn’t have the ball back for long.

          On the first play of the ensuing drive, Ed Gainey read the play perfectly and picked off Nichols’ pass. The defensive back ran the ball back 30 yards to set up a Riders first and goal. Vernon Adams made the short one-yard charge into the end zone to give Saskatchewan a 17-3 lead.

          The Riders weren’t done there.

          A Winnipeg two-and-out sent the ball back to Saskatchewan. Nic Demski took the punt return and surged past a sea of Blue and Gold, picking up 63 yards and setting Saskatchewan up for another first and goal. Glenn found Rob Bagg in the end zone to give the Riders their third touchdown of the quarter to hold a commanding 24-3 lead after 15 minutes.

          Winnipeg appeared to score its first major of the day when Tim Flanders took a pass from Glenn and shook off a heard of Bombers defenders before crossing the plane. However, a late illegal block penalty took the points off the board.

          Just two plays later, Glenn connected with Flanders again. The Bombers’ running back picked up 11 yards after the short pass and charged into the end zone. This time there were no flags, cutting the Riders’ lead to 24-10.

          The Bombers added a field goal on their next drive as they continued to claw back into the game.

          Saskatchewan managed to put more distance between the two teams before halftime. Bakari Grant caught a short pass from Glenn and sprinted up the field 44 yards after the catch to set up the Riders in the red zone. Glenn spotted Duron Carter alone in the end zone a couple plays later for another touchdown to pull the Riders further ahead.

          Saskatchewan continued its offensive momentum when Cameron Marshall took a handoff from Glenn and streamed down the sideline for a 48-yard run. Marshall was pushed out of bounds just short of the goal line, but the Bomber defence held strong, sacking Glenn on a second down and keeping the ball out of the end zone. The Riders didn’t come away empty handed, settling for a field goal instead.

          The Bombers notched another field goal before the end of the quarter to head into the half down 34-16.

          The beginning of the second half was quiet for both teams. Crapigna’s third field goal of the game were the only points scored in the third quarter.

          Andrew Harris refused to be silenced by the Riders, making his presence known midway through the fourth quarter. Nichols tossed a short pass to the dual threat running back, who then dashed 10 yards into the end zone to chip into the Riders’ lead.

          That was as close as the Bombers would get. Nichols led a steady charge downfield and appeared to be putting Winnipeg in a position to score. The Bombers’ quarterback threw a pass into the end zone, but Nichols’ efforts were spoiled by Gainey, who picked off the pass for his second interception of the day.

          Gainey’s sixth pick of the season extended his lead over the rest of the field in 2017.

          The Bombers will be out for revenge next week when they travel back to Winnipeg to take on the Riders in the annual Banjo Bowl.

              *********************

              Monday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….

              13) If you have season tickets for an NFL team, you buy 10 games at regular season prices; the obvious problem is this: 2 of those 10 games are exhibition games.

              NFL should reduce the price of those two unwatchable preseason games to $25, which would allow people who don’t normally go to exhibition games to go. At some point, the owners have to stop sucking every last dollar from the consumer. Its not good business. Greed isn’t good.

              12) 37 Buccaneers sat out their exhibition game Thursday night; assuming all of those guys are making the squad, that means only 16 players who will be Bucs in Week 1 played vs Washington.

              11) NFL owners get stadiums built for them; they’re rich people with a sense of entitlement that is out of control. At some point, NFL owners need to give something back to their communities.

              10) Seahawks acquired defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson from the Jets on Friday. In return, Seattle sent WR Jermaine Kearse and a 2018 2nd-round draft pick to New Jersey.

              9) A professional golfer named Kelly Kraft (#64 in FedEx Cup standings) made a 12 on the par-5 second hole Friday, shot a 44 on the front nine, then withdrew with a foot injury. Oy.

              8) Nigel Williams-Goss transferred from Washington to Gonzaga, sat out 2015-16, then helped the Zags make the Final Four last year. He skipped his senior year at Gonzaga, was drafted in the second round by Utah, but instead of getting a two-way contract with Utah, he is off to Serbia to play ball for $130,000 this season. Curious decision.

              7) 49ers cut QB Matt Barkley, who figures to get picked up by someone (Buffalo??). Browns cut Brock Osweiler, who still banks $16M from Cleveland— Osweiler is headed back to Denver with a hefty bank account, but with very little success on the field.

              6) Baseball players who are September 1st call-ups making minimum MLB salary ($535,000 a year) will earn $90,628 for the rest of the season.

              5) Was reading where Justin Verlander approved his trade to Houston one minute before the trade deadline. Supposedly there was a chance he would be traded to the Cubs, but that fell thru.

              4) UL-Lafayette 51, SE Louisiana 48— Ragin’ Cajuns ran two kicks back for TD’s; Lions ran a punt back for a score. With 0:42 left, SE Louisiana scored a TD to make score 49-48- they went for two points and the win, but their QB fumbled and ULL ran it back for two points of their own. Game was 35-35 at halftime.

              3) Cleveland Browns’ three QB’s (Kizer-Kessler-Hogan) have a total of zero NFL wins to their credit. Browns are paying Brock Osweiler $15M+ to be a backup in Denver.

              Dolphins signed K Cody Parkey, which means RPI alum Andrew Franks is out of a job, at least for now.

              2) Indians 11, Tigers 1— Cleveland has won 11 games in a row.

              1) Jets, Jaguars, Browns picked up five guys each off the waiver wire; Ram picked up three, the Colts four. Most of the better teams didn’t add anyone— you can get a little bit of a feel of who the better teams are by seeing which teams add which players.

                      PREVIEW
                      STAMPS, ESKS DUEL FOR FIRST ON LABOUR DAY


                      CALGARY — The Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos meet at McMahon Stadium on Monday in a Labour Day Classic matchup with much more than provincial pride on the line.

                      Dave Dickenson’s Stamps have been the class of the league in recent weeks, and enter their Week 11 matchup as owners of a league-best 7-1-1 record.

                      Jason Maas’s Eskimos, on the flip side, have seen their 7-0 start drop to a 7-2 record following losses to Winnipeg (33-26, Week 9) and Saskatchewan (54-31, Week 10).

                      The two squads will square off on Monday afternoon in Calgary in what promises to be an enticing first-place matchup.

                      For the first time in what seems like forever, the Edmonton Eskimos are relatively healthy.

                      Star receiver Adarius Bowman — out since Week 4 due to injury — is back, while linebacker Adam Konar makes his return from the six-game injured list.

                      Eskimos pivot Mike Reilly hopes the return of Bowman and a long week of practice will help him flush a season-worst 160-yard, two-interception performance last week against Saskatchewan.

                      “Any time Adarius is on our roster, it’s a great thing — he’s brought that energy to our team this week,” Reilly told Esks.com. “Playing a rival on Labour Day, I’m very excited for it. It feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve been on the field.”

                      The Edmonton gunslinger reviewed the tape of his lacklustre performance against Saskatchewan and found a return to simplicity is in order.

                      “As a quarterback, (success) is going through your reads and not trying to take what’s not there — that only gets you in trouble,” said Reilly. “You’re not going to have success if you try to force the issues, (and) that holds true against Calgary, because they’re a very good defence.”

                      Part of Reilly’s success, or lack thereof in Monday’s Labour Day showdown with the first-place Stamps, will tie into the return of Bowman; the star slotback has broken the 1,000-yard receiving mark in each of the last three seasons, but will need a remarkable a second half to reach the milestone in 2017.

                      “I’m so excited, words really can’t explain it,” explained Bowman. “We know coming over here (to Calgary) that we have to be close to perfect, but what better game to come back for?”

                      Like everybody associated with the Esks organization has reiterated throughout an injury-plagued 2017 season, Bowman credited the men ‘upstairs’ with fielding a deep roster in his absence.

                      “This year, truly, the guys upstairs did a great job of putting a lot of (good) players on the field,” said Bowman. “In history, you see a team take some injuries at a position group — anywhere on the field — and there’s a major drop. But here, everybody is performing.”

                      With regular kicker Sean Whyte still out of the lineup, the Eskimos will welcome veteran kicker Chris Milo to the lineup on Monday. Edmonton, which signed the Laval product on Sept. 2, is the third CFL stop for the 30-year-old, who has also suited up for Saskatchewan (2011-15) and Ottawa (2015-16). Hugh O’Neill remains rostered and will likely handle punting duties.

                      The Calgary Stampeders have been playing winning football for some time now, but this week’s Labour Day rivalry matchup against the Edmonton Eskimos presents a whole new challenge.

                      “It’s been such a great challenge to go up against Edmonton the last three or four years, (and you) need that back and forth (in a rivalry),” Stamps head coach Dave Dickenson told Stampeders.com. “It was a heavy, heavy rivalry back in the 90’s, now it feels like it’s 100 per cent back.”

                      Monday’s matchup features a mouth-watering matchup between Reilly and Stamps pivot Bo Levi Mitchell. The latter sees the former as one of the league’s elite quarterbacks, and hopes the Edmonton quarterback slips up at McMahon.

                      “Mike’s one of those guys that, no matter what you’re up by, you know he’s going to rally his guys and put some points up,” explained Mitchell of his Monday counterpart before cracking a joke. “He plays his best in the 4th (quarter, so) I hope he stays healthy, has a bad game, and gives us the win.”

                      National Calgary receiver Anthony Parker, currently sixth on the team in receiving yards with 226, will suit up for his 100th game on Monday.

                      “Flair for the dramatic, eh,” laughed the Vancouver native. “It’s cool, when I saw it at the start of the season…Labour Day, the 100th game…it was a big focus on staying healthy to get to this point.”

                      Homegrown Stamps running back Anthony Woodson was added to the 46-man roster ahead of Monday’s clash with the Eskimos; the born-and-bred Calgary back understands the importance of a provincial showdown on Labour Day.

                      “I do remember the Labour Day games our coach (Dave Dickenson) was involved in,’’ said Woodson. “Those were huge (and) they made a big impact on me. That’s when I was old enough to be a real Stamps fan.”

                      Now, the 29 year-old — signed in February following stops in Winnipeg, Toronto and Hamilton — will get a chance to strap on the pads in the historic game for himself.

                      By The Numbers

                      12 – Sacks allowed by Calgary, the fewest in the league. Ball security and pocket protection have been integral to the success of Bo Levi Mitchell and the offence thus far in 2017.

                      31:31 – Average time of possession for Edmonton (31:32) and Calgary (31:30), the two teams who enjoy the greatest average share of possession in the CFL.

                      88.3 – QUAR rating for Edmonton’s Mike Reilly, second only to Winnipeg’s Matt Nichols (88.9).

                      169 – League-low points allowed by Calgary’s defence. The next closest? Saskatchewan at 227, 58 points away with the same amount of games played.

                      The Skinny

                      In terms of regular-season contests, it doesn’t get much more fun than this sequence: Eskimos. Stampeders. Labour Day. First place on the line.

                      Mike Reilly is looking to bounce back from one of the poorest starts of his career, while Edmonton is trying to right the ship following a two-game losing skid.

                      Bo Levi Mitchell and the Stamps are trying to continue their winning ways and create some separation from the pack in the CFL’s ultra-competitive West Division.

                      The two squads will meet at McMahon on Monday night with the stakes high, the atmosphere rowdy and an entire province — and division — tuned in with rapt attention.

                      Kickoff is slated for 3:00 p.m. ET and can be followed live via CFL.ca Game Tracker and seen on TSN and ESPN 3.

                        PREVIEW
                        ARGOS, TICATS RENEW HISTORIC LABOUR DAY CLASSIC RIVALRY


                        HAMILTON — The Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats will add another chapter in their historic Labour Day Classic rivalry when they close out Mark’s Labour Day Weekend on Monday.

                        If this year’s game is anything like the 2016 version, CFL fans are certainly in for a treat.

                        Last year, the Ticats battled back from a 13-point half-time deficit, outscoring the Argos 32-6 in the final 30 minutes to defeat Toronto 49-36.

                        The Argos are looking for their first Labour Day Classic win since 2012.

                        The Boatmen couldn’t hold off the surging Stampeders in Week 10, falling 23-7 to the top team in the league. Toronto kept pace through the first two quarters, heading into halftime trailing only 9-7. But Marc Trestman’s revamped offence was held off the scoreboard in the final 30 minutes. Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray was held to only 220 yards and no touchdowns.

                        The Argos’ only points were from an impressive 115-yard pick six by former Ticat Cassius Vaughn.

                        “There are no moral victories, but I thought our defence really, really played an excellent football game,” Trestman told Argonauts.ca after the loss. “Other than a couple of pre-snap penalties, I thought they played extremely hard with a huge sense of urgency throughout the game… Anytime you can hold a team to 21, 22, 23 points, that really says something about the way you’re playing defence.”

                        Toronto’s defence has been one of the best in the league heading into Week 11. That unit ranks second in total yards given up per game (347.1) and passing yards allowed per game (250) through the first half of the season.

                        The Argos will still be without a key cog in their defence as Victor Butler is a no-go for Labour Day. There were reports that the CFL leader in sacks was likely to play his first game since being sidelined in Week 5 with a knee injury.

                        Argos receiver S.J. Green could become the second player could this year to reach the 1,000-yard mark. The 32-year-old needs 101 yards on Monday to reach the milestone for the fifth time in his career.

                        Plenty of urgency is riding on Monday’s game for the Argos, who are 4-1 against their division this season. They’ve still got Hamilton twice more and sweeping the season series with the Tabbies could be key to taking the East Division, which has a new leader in the Ottawa REDBLACKS following their win on Thursday night.

                        The rival Hamilton Tiger-Cats don’t plan on making a Labour Day win easy at Tim Hortons Field.

                        The Black and Gold used their bye week to make a number of changes on and off the field.

                        The Ticats have tabbed Jeremiah Masoil to start on Monday in favour of Zach Collaros. It is the first time since Collaros arrived in Hamilton from Toronto in 2014 that he will play a backup role. The 29-year-old has lost 12 straight as a starter, just one game short of a CFL record.

                        The start marks Masoli’s first ever on Labour Day.

                        Monday will also mark June Jones’ first game as a CFL head coach. Vice President of Football Operations Kent Austin stepped down as the Ticats bench boss last week, promoting Jones from assistant head coach. The 64-year-old has head coaching experience in the NCAA and NFL.

                        Jones says that his offence will have to step up if the Ticats want to secure their first win of 2017 on Labour Day.

                        “I think our defence has played well enough to win the last two weeks,” Jones told Ticats.ca. “I thought if we were really productive offensively we had a chance to win both of those games. We’ll see what happens. The kids have a lot of pride… I think the scheme is something they have confidence in and we’ll get going.”

                        Craig Butler will make his CFL coaching debut in the Labour Day Classic. The Ticats defensive back announced his retirement last week and has joined the coaching staff as an assistant coach.

                        The Ticats last played on Aug. 18, falling to the Ottawa REDBLACKS 37-18. Luke Tasker led the Ticats offence with 93 yards and a touchdown on six catches. Collaros completed 9 of 17 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown before being replaced by Masoli midway through the third quarter.

                        Linebacker Larry Dean racked up a career high 10 tackles in the loss.

                        On Monday, the Ticats will play their first game without John Chick. The veteran defensive end was traded to the Edmonton Eskimos following a loss to Ottawa.

                        Ricky Collins, acquired from the Saskatchewan Roughriders, will make his Tiger-Cats debut.

                        By The Numbers

                        8 – League-leading pass knockdowns for Ticats defensive back Richard Leonard. He has at least one in his last five games.

                        20.3 – Average margin of defeat for the Ticats this year. Only Saskatchewan in 1959 has ever finished with a scoring differential for a season worse than the Ticats this year (22.2).

                        98 – Receiving targets for S.J. Green, the most in the league.

                        210 – Career starts for Ricky Ray including Monday’s Labour Day Classic.

                        The Skinny

                        The clock is ticking on the Ticats to salvage their so-far winless season. Hamilton has a history of success on Labour Day, and a victory against their bitter rivals could be the confidence boost the team needs to get back on track.

                        The Ticats have an overall record of 32-13-1 in Labour Day matchups against the Argos and have won the last three straight. Ricky Ray is 1-2 in Labour Day game against Hamilton.

                        While history is on the Ticats’ side, the more recent past is not in their favour.

                        Hamilton established Tim Hortons Field as one of the toughest stadiums for opposing teams to play in when it was built three years ago. The inaugural game was Labour Day of 2014. Hamilton won their first 10 games in front of a hometown crowd. There first loss at the new field was not until Aug. 27, 2015.

                        Flash forward to now and the Ticats have dropped their last eight games on home turf, a losing skid that has carried over from last season.

                        On the other hand, the Toronto Argonauts have never won a regular season game at the Ticats’ new home.

                        Kickoff is slated for 6:30 p.m. ET and can be followed live via CFL.ca Game Tracker and seen on TSN and ESPN 3.

                            STAMPS STIFLE ESKS, CRUISE TO SIXTH STRAIGHT WIN


                            CALGARY – The Calgary Stampeders made a statement on Mark’s Labour Day Weekend, winning their sixth game in a row and beating the rival Edmonton Eskimos 39-18 at McMahon Stadium.

                            With first place on the line, the crucial West Division matchup sent the Esks (7-3) to their third straight loss while the Stamps improved to 8-1-1.

                            Bo Levi Mitchell tossed 277 passing yards and a pick while Mike Reilly threw for 320 yards and added a pair of interceptions and touchdown passes.

                            Calgary scored on the opening possession and got it done in all three facets of the game, holding off a brief fourth quarter Eskimos comeback.

                            DaVaris Daniels started the game with a 45-yard gain to get the Stamps offence rolling right off the bat. Right outside of the redzone, a Jerome Messam rush moved the ball further but Calgary would settle for the field goal and the 3-0 lead.

                            The Stamps defence continued to carry the early momentum. After an offside call gave the Esks a first down, Brandon Smith got the ball back for Calgary by forcing a Cory Watson fumble that was recovered by the home team. Working back on offence, Mitchell found Anthony Parker open outside the goal line before Messam rumbled his way to the end zone for the touchdown. Roy Finch caught the two-point conversion as the Stamps lead grew to 11-0.

                            First down grabs by Brandon Zylstra and Adarius Bowman kept the chains moving as Edmonton looked to put some points on the board. A 14-yard rush from Ladarius Perkins put the Esks past midfield and a Kenny Stafford reception moved them into scoring territory. Chris Milo booted a 22-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 11-3.

                            Marquay McDaniel’s 23-yard gain closed out the first quarter. The Stamps drive continued with a Julan Lynch grab before Parker’s 24-yard sweep rush scored another touchdown and increased the Calgary lead to 18-3.

                            While trading possessions, the Stamps defence maintained their pressure on Reilly and the Esks offence throughout. On an Edmonton punt, Roy Finch had a case of déjà vu to last year’s Labour Day game, returning the kick 90 yards to the endzone as it was 25-3 with just over six minutes remaining in the first half.

                            Opting for the short game, the Esks chipped their way downfield with a series of small rushes and passes. Milo kicked a 46-yard field goal to end the drive.

                            Calgary added a single on a Paredes missed 42-yard field goal attempt as the Stamps carried a 26-6 lead into halftime.

                            The Esks did not get off to a good start in the second half as Reilly was intercepted by Shaq Richardson on the second play of the drive. Messam immediately punched in his second major of the game as Stamps lead quickly grew to 33-6.

                            Just outside of the three-minute warning and still pressing for points, things did not get any better for the Esks. Richardson jumped a pass route and secured his second interception of the game, again putting the Stamps in instant scoring territory. Paredes notched another field goal to grow Calgary’s lead.

                            Edmonton opened the fourth quarter with short passes and rushes to work their way towards the endzone. They capitalized with a Kenny Stafford touchdown but could not convert on the two-point attempt as the score sat at 36-12.

                            The Stamps didn’t look done on offence as Mitchell found Daniels 46 yards downfield on the next possession. Now looking at scoring territory, Mitchell’s throw was intercepted by Forrest Hightower as Edmonton went back to work offensively. Reilly rushed 22 yards past midfield and then found Zylstra 41 yards downfield for the touchdown but again were unsuccessful on the two-point convert attempt, still trailing 36-18.

                            A 22-yard gain by Marken Michel kept the Stamps offence moving as the clock began winding down to under three minutes. Paredes kicked another field goal to put the Stamps back up 39-18 and secured the victory by forcing a late turnover on downs.

                            Next week, the two clubs face off in a rematch at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

                            RECAP
                            TICATS HANG ON TO WIN WET AND WILD LABOUR DAY CLASSIC


                            HAMILTON — Lirim Hajrullahu’s last-minute 37-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left for the Argos, sending the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to their first win of the season in the Labour Day Classic on Monday night in Hamilton, 24-22.

                            C.J. Gable scored the go-ahead touchdown with 2:30 remaining while the Argos came up just short of the late-game comeback, sealing a wet and wild Labour Day that included a two-hour, eight-minute delay due to lightning.

                            Jeremiah Masoli went 19-of-33 for 219 yards, a touchdown and an interception in his first career start on Labour Day while June Jones won his coaching debut after taking over for Kent Austin. Brandon Banks had a team-high 98 receiving yards and a touchdown. Gable chipped in with 43 rushing yards and 12 receiving yards.

                            Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray threw for 325 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on 34-of-47 passing in a strong second-half performance by the veteran quarterback, including a pair of touchdown tosses to DeVier Posey.

                            For the Ticats, the annual Labour Day Classic against their most-hated rival was highly-anticipated after a turbulent couple of weeks in Tiger Town, including changes to the coaching staff and under centre. But in Jones’ first game as head coach and Masoli’s first under centre, things didn’t start out as planned.

                            A time count violation cost the Ticats five yards before their first offensive play while, shortly after, Masoli’s second-down pass was intercepted by Argos linebacker Marcus Ball.

                            The Ticats avoided disaster, getting a quick stop and forcing a 35-yard field goal by Lirim Hajrullahu with hopes of better things to come.

                            They would, eventually, but not right away as the two East Division rivals sparred lightly through the first 15 minutes of the ball-game.

                            With both offences struggling, Ray’s deep ball to S.J. Green was intercepted by Richard Leonard in double coverage. But after a 30-yard return into Argo territory, the Boatmen escaped trouble, getting a quick stop and the football back.

                            It was 6-0 after Hajrullahu’s second field goal of the game, this one from 13 yards out, when it appeared that Martese Jackson had broken the game wide open. The speedy and slippery return specialist eluded defenders and took off down the sideline for a 101-yard punt return touchdown, only to have the game’s biggest play called back on a holding penalty.

                            At 7:32 p.m. ET, with just under nine minutes to go in the second quarter, lightning in the area forced the fans into the concourse and an eventual two-plus hour delay.

                            The storm passed and the wind, although still a major factor, died down a little bit to set up the final two-and-a-half quarters of football at Tim Hortons Field. Up 6-0, the Argos had a chance to make it a two-score lead when they lined Hajrullahu up for a 43-yard attempt against the breeze. The kick had the distance but missed to the left, leading to their seventh point of the night and a lead of a converted touchdown.

                            With 1:59 and the wind at their backs, the Ticats showed no hesitation trying a 57-yard field goal — and it paid off as Castillo split the uprights to deliver the first points of the night for the Black and Gold.

                            Jones’ club had a chance for more before the half after stopping the Argos on third-and-three in Ticats territory. But after a swift trip into scoring range, time slipped away from the first-time CFL coach and his team. Toronto defensive coordinator Corey Chamblin brought the pressure and Masoli was sacked after time expired, sending Hamilton into the half with little to show for the late swing in momentum.

                            A very short halftime break arrived at 10:03 p.m. ET as the teams switched sides and the third quarter got under way.

                            The Ticats didn’t get any time to think about it and maybe that was a good thing, because after a first down by Jalen Saunders on a hitch screen, Banks snuck in behind the Argos’ defence, hauling in a wide open 64-yard touchdown pass from Masoli to give the Ticats a 10-7 lead.

                            With the ball in their possession and the wind at their backs, the Ticats planned to take full advantage of a rain-soaked field tilting quickly in their favour. On the very next play, Argos returner Jackson had the ball knocked from his grip and picked up and returned for a touchdown by Felix Faubert-Lussier. Osagie Odiase forced the fumble as the special teams play gave the Ticats a 17-7 lead.

                            As quickly as the Tabbies gained momentum, the Argo offence finally discovered itself after its most unproductive stretch of the season. Over the previous eight quarters coming into the second half on Monday night, that unit managed only three field goals while failing to find the end zone.

                            That changed quickly part way through the third quarter. After a forgettable first half, Ray got into a groove with seven completions on nine attempts, culminating in a a 10-yard touchdown pass to Posey to cut the Argos’ deficit to 17-14 late in the third quarter.

                            Momentum is a big part of football and it can change in a moment’s notice. And suddenly, at the turn of the fourth quarter, momentum had slipped from the Ticats to the Argos in a big way.

                            On the first play of the fourth quarter, Castillo’s kick against the wind trailed off to the left and was retrieved from the end zone by Jackson, leaving the Ticats empty-handed.

                            Marc Trestman’s offence, methodical as always, went back to work. Ray completed five straight passes to four different receivers, including one to Posey at the Hamilton 11 that was turned into a go-ahead touchdown for the Double Blue.

                            The seven-play, 66-yard scoring drop put the Argos ahead 21-17 early in the fourth quarter.

                            With under 7:00 to go in the game, the Ticats had a chance to steal back the momentum, pinning Jackson and the Argos back at their own one-yard-line after a big punt by Castillo. But calm and cool as ever, Ray rolled out to his right and completed a pass to Jeff Fuller and another one to Green, moving the sticks and providing some breathing room.

                            Despite a stretch of 15 completions on 17 attempts by Ray, the Argos had to punt from their own 22 with the wind at their backs. With the wind shifting and a 15-yard penalty for no yards, the Ticats took over with optimal field position near their opponent’s 40 looking to make up a four-point deficit.

                            They did, and quickly, with help from a pass interference call against Rico Murray on Luke Tasker in the Argo end zone. The penalty set the Ticats up at the one, leading to a one-yard plunge by C.J. Gable and a 24-21 Ticats lead with two and a half minutes left.

                            Ray used his feet along with a fortunate Argo bounce on a completion to Green, moving the boatmen into field goal range on the ensuing drive. At the Hamilton 30, Hajrullahu’s 37-yard field goal in the wind missed to the left, sending the Ticats to their first win of the 2017 season.

                            The division rivals played to a crowd of 23,926 at Tim Hortons Field in a game that took five hours and three minutes from start to finish.

                            For the Ticats, the victory is a huge sigh of relief in a season that had strayed well off path. The Tabbies, at 1-8, move to within six points of a playoff spot behind the second-place Argos with two games in hand.

                            From the Argos’ perspective, their second straight loss stings, especially after controlling the clock for 34:53 and holding a 389-261 edge in offensive yards. The Boatmen also held a 26-16 edge in first downs while converting 17 of their 28 second-down attempts (61%) compared to Hamilton’s 33 per cent clip (6-of-18).

                            While the Argos lead the CFL both in sacks for and sacks against, Monday’s contest produced only two quarterback takedowns — one for each side.

                            Shawn Lemon left the game early in the third quarter with an apparent injury and Mercer Timmis was helped off the field early in the fourth. Neither player returned.

                            The Argos are off in Week 11 with a much-needed bye, their first of the 2017 campaign, while the Ticats head to the nation’s capital for their second clash of the season with the Ottawa REDBLACKS on Saturday, Sept. 9.
