TORONTO -- Week 13 brought on some thrilling action from East to West, as each team played down to the final second of the clock and made sure it counted.
On Friday Night Football in Winnipeg, the Eskimos overcame a massive deficit to force overtime and ultimately win the game thanks to a 10-yard touchdown run by Hugh Charles.
On Saturday, the Alouettes and Tiger-Cats kicked off a double header in Moncton, where the Ticats improved their record in Touchdown Atlantic games to 2-0 with a 28-26 win.
The second of two Saturday games saw the Argonauts continue to dominate away from home, this time downing the Stampeders at McMahon Stadium. QB Zach Collaros led another late-game surge, patrolling the Boatmen to a 33-27 victory.
Finally, Sunday afternoon's clash saw the Lions roll into Riderville to take on the Roughriders. Making his first career start, Thomas DeMarco took the filled in admirably for injured pivot Travis Lulay, helping the Leos earn a thrilling 24-22 win.
Here's how the action went down.
Edmonton 35, Winnipeg 27
Hugh Charles had the game-winning touchdown from 10 yards out, as the Edmonton Eskimos capped off an impressive late-game comeback with a 35-27 win over the Blue Bombers in Winnipeg on Friday night.
Mike Reilly threw for 418 yards and a touchdown, leading a frantic second-half surge to spoil the Bombers' party, on the same night they honoured former great Charles Roberts at half time during the annual Hall of Fame game.
Max Hall had 253 yards on 18-27 passing to go with a touchdown in just his third career start, but it wasn't enough as the Eskimos won their second game in a row for the first time this season and swept their home-and-home with the Bombers.
Montreal 26, Hamilton 28
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats improved their record in Moncton to 2-0 as they topped the Montreal Alouettes 28-26 Saturday afternoon at Moncton Stadium.
Saturday’s contest was the fourth ever held in the Maritimes, and the third regular season game in Moncton in the last four years. The first was in Halifax on June 11, 2005 when the Tiger-Cats faced the Toronto Argonauts in a pre-season game.
Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris was making his second appearance at Touchdown Atlantic after playing with Calgary back in 2011.
Toronto 33, Calgary 27
Zach Collaros threw four touchdowns on 330 yards passing, as the Argonauts won their fifth game away from home, 33-27 over the Calgary Stampeders.
For the Stampeders, the loss was their first at home this season and first since Week 8 of last season, when they dropped a 22-14 decision to Toronto.
Tonight’s action marked the second time in a month that the Argos and Stamps met, with Calgary earning a decisive 35-14 victory in Toronto in late August.
The Week 9 battle was more than just a loss in the standings for the Argos, as QB Ricky Ray was forced out of the game in the first quarter with a shoulder injury.
BC 24, Saskatchewan 22
Thomas DeMarco engineered a five-play drive to set up a game-winning Paul McCallum field goal as the BC Lions stunned the Saskatchewan Roughriders with a 24-22 come-from-behind win.
The Lions had just conceded an 8-yard go-ahead touchdown to Weston Dressler to give the Roughriders their first lead since halftime with 38 seconds left.
DeMarco finished the evening 18 of 33 for 208 yards and 2 touchdowns in his first career start.
