article imageCFL Scores: Calgary holds off Edmonton 37-34

By Larry Seely     Sep 2, 2013 in Sports
Calgary - Calgary looked like one of the top teams in the CFL as they opened a big lead over the Eskimos, but the Stampeders needed to hold on tight in the end as their 30 point lead after three quarters was in jeopardy by the end of the Labor Day Contest.
Calgary starting quarterback Kevin Glenn was off to a terrific start, completing 8 of 11 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown, but a lower leg injury in the second quarter knocked the veteran from the game.
Backup Bo Levi Mitchell has shown he can handle the offense and he came in to guide the Stampeders and finished the contest with 11 completions in 18 attempts for 226 yards and two touchdowns.
Edmonton fell behind early and looked like a team ready to fold in the towel, but quarterback Mike Reilly led a furious fourth quarter comeback as he guided the Eskimos to 27 points, but despite all the momentum in the contest, Calgary held on for the victory.
Reilly went 16 of 35 for 246 yards and four touchdowns on Monday, but two interceptions and several missed connections ended up costing him and the team a shot at victory.
Calgary improved to 7-2 on the year and remained just two points behind Saskatchewan in the West Division. Edmonton dropped to 1-8 for the 2013 CFL season and despite better play from the offense in recent weeks, lost for the seventh straight week.
