LAST NIGHT IN EDMONTON

THREE STARS

1. Stamps RB Joffrey Reynolds -- Hit the century mark in rushing and was key to scoring on the first two possessions of the second half.

2. Eskimos RB Tyler Ebell -- Totalled 144 yards, 109 along the ground and 35 through the air as the biggest offensive threat for the home side.

3. Stamps LB Scott Coe -- Forced a fumble from Ricky Ray to set up a first-half field goal. Also recorded five tackles, tied for a team high.

WHY THE STAMPS WON/LOST

They made some halftime adjustments on both sides of the ball, but came out firing on offence to start the second half, scoring touchdowns on their first two drives to erase a seven-point deficit. When they needed their defence to stop Ricky Ray, they were able to pressure him into some errant passes.

CATCH OF THE GAME

Stamps WR Ken-Yon Rambo had three of the nicest ones but his second-quarter one gets the nod. With fullback Rob Cote in the area, QB Henry Burris threaded the needle to Rambo with Eskimos DB Jason Flowers draped all over him.

HIT OF THE GAME

Eskimos DB Stanford Samuels, making his return from a foot injury, popped Stamps WR Ryan Thelwell on a deep pass along the sidelines. Thelwell was trying to secure the ball when Samuels drove into his chest, knocking the ball loose. Samuels was slow to get up afterwards but did return.

KEY STAT

56 -- The rushing yardage for Stampeders QB Henry Burris, including 12- and six-yard draw plays that helped kill the clock in the final two minutes.

NOTABLES

Stamps WR Ken-Yon Rambo scored his third touchdown in the past two games ... Defensive lineman John Syptak made his debut for the Stamps and got into the action early, making a tackle on the opening kickoff.
