The Calgary Stampeders have won a hard fought victory, defeating Edmonton's Eskimos 31-30 in the Labour Day Classic. Larry Taylor caught a seven-yard touchdown pass from Kevin Glenn with 63 seconds remaining as the Calgary Stampeders edged the Edmonton Eskimos 31-30 in the annual Labour Day clash Monday.
Rookies Bo Levi Mitchell and Matt Walter had rushing touchdowns for the Stampeders.....Glenn also threw a touchdown pass to Jon Cornish, Rene Paredes kicked a field goal, and Rob Maver booted a single. Kerry Joseph and Joe Burnett scored touchdowns 43 seconds apart in the fourth quarter to put the Eskimos up 30-25 with just over six minutes to play in the game, but the Edmonton defence couldn't shut down Taylor and the Calgary offence.
Both teams are now 5-4 and will meet again Friday in Edmonton.
