Eskimos beat Alouettes 23-12 to snap slide

--

EDMONTON - When the Edmonton Eskimos couldn't get it going with their offence, their defence stepped up.

Deon Lacey had a six-yard interception return touchdown with less than a minute to play as the Eskimos snapped a three-game losing skid with a sloppy 23-12 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Thursday.

Montreal lost its second game in a row to drop to 2-5.

"I take blame for some of the stuff. I can't throw a pick like that."

The Eskimos looked great out of the gate on their opening drive, however it fell apart at the end of it as receiver Derel Walker fumbled the ball off of a Montreal defender at the one-yard line and turned it over. The Alouettes ended up conceding a two-point safety. …
