Bombers hand Eskimos first loss of season

--

WINNIPEG - Andrew Harris accomplished something he had never done before in his professional career on Thursday.

The Blue Bombers running back chalked up more than 100 yards in both rushing and receiving as Winnipeg won its fourth straight game and handed the Edmonton Eskimos their first loss of the season with a 33-26 victory.

"Probably not since junior. Probably not even junior," the 30-year-old Winnipeg native said of the double century marks.

"Some games, (yards) just come to you naturally. Matt (Nichols) was finding me in the pass game and I was able to make some into big chunks so that helps for sure."

"He's a difference-maker for us. One of the best, if not the best, in the league for the last number of years. I can't say enough about him."

It was Winnipeg's second win against a CFL West Division opponent. It gave the team 12 points and second place in the division, but Calgary (11 points) plays B.C. Friday.

Quarterback Mike Reilly was 20-of-33 for 356 yards with two TDs and one interception.

"When you're playing against an opponent like that, you need to play four quarters of good football and we played two quarters of pretty good football," Reilly said.

Winnipeg (6-2) led 3-0 after the first quarter and 17-3 at halftime, the fewest points Edmonton (7-1) has scored in the first half this season. …
