TORONTO -- We have officially hit the midway point and Labour Day signals the road to the playoffs.
On Friday night, the Lions hosted the Tiger-cats in a game that came down to the wire, as the Lions held on and defeated Hamilton 29-26.
Sunday afternoon brought Winnipeg into a boisterous Mosaic and the Riders once again came out on top as they extended their winning streak in demanding fashion 48-25 win over the Bombers.
Monday evening saw a Labour Day classic for the ages as the Eskimos almost creating a monumental comeback against the Stampeders but just falling short in the end.
Tuesday evening was a battle of the youngsters as Tanner Marsh and the Alouettes got the better of Zach Collaros and the Toronto Argonauts to the tune of 20-9.
Here's how the action went down.
Hamilton 26, BC 29
Shawn Gore hauled in one of three Travis Lulay passes as the BC Lions held off the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 29-26 Friday night in Vancouver.
Lulay had his best outing of the year, passing for 359 yards on 26 of 36 with 3 touchdowns. He also ran one in himself.
Lulay led an 8-play, 75-yard touchdown drive on BC's second possession of the game. The veteran pivot found Gore three times for 18, 12 and 5 yards with the latter counting as Gore’s sixth major of the season.
Winnipeg 25, Saskatchewan 48
Kory Sheets, Taj Smith and Geroy Simon all had a pair of touchdowns as the Saskatchewan Roughriders handled the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 48-25 Sunday afternoon in front of a sold out crowd of 44,910 at Mosaic Stadium.
Sheets finished with 91 yards on the ground on 20 carries, while quarterback Darian Durant finished 24 of 35 for 310 yards and 4 touchdown passes.
Winnipeg handed the ball back to Justin Goltz who after starting two games earlier in the season became the next option after injuries were sustained to Buck Pierce and Max Hall. Goltz finished 18 of 29 for 182 yards.
Edmonton 34, Stampeders 37
Maurice Price had a day to remember and the Calgary defence held off a furious Edmonton comeback as the Stampeders took the Labour Day Classic over the Eskimos 37-34 Monday at McMahon Stadium.
Down by 30 points after three quarters, Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly helped put 27 fourth-quarter points on the board but their comeback fell just short.
Price was the story for the majority of the day hauling in three touchdown passes on 165 yards receiving as Calgary took their third straight Labour Day Classic.
Montreal 20, Toronto 9
The Montreal defence held Zach Collaros and the Argos in check while Tanner Marsh threw for 309 yards and touchdown as the Alouettes downed the Toronto Argonauts 20-9.
Marsh finished an impressive 18 of 27 for 309 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
Collaros, meanwhile, passed for 261 yards, one touchdown and one interception, completing 21 of 32 passes.
Green led all receivers with a stellar 143 yards on 8 receptions.
