Stampeders 24, Eskimos 18: Nick Arbuckle threw for 189 yards and a touchdown while Terry Williams returned a kickoff for a score as Calgary defeated visiting Edmonton to move into a tie for first place in the West Division.

Arbuckle completed 19-of-28 passes, including a scoring strike to Eric Rogers, as the Stampeders (5-2) pulled even with Winnipeg for the top spot in the West after winning for the fifth time in six contests. Reggie Begelton gained 62 yards on six receptions and Rene Paredes kicked four field goals as Calgary beat the Eskimos for the fourth straight time at home in the regular season.

Trevor Harris was 29-of-42 for 373 yards and a pair of TD passes to Ricky Collins, who finished with six catches for 148 yards to lead Edmonton (4-3). Sean Whyte booted his league-leading 22nd field goal and linebacker Vontae Diggs collected 10 tackles for the Eskimos, whose final drive ended at Calgary's 17-yard line.

The Stampeders averted disaster late in a scoreless first quarter as Ante Milanovic-Litre recovered a fumbled punt deep in their end before Paredes connected on field goals of 47, 43 and 42 yards in the second for a 9-0 lead at intermission. Harris tied the game one play after a safety by the Eskimos, hitting Collins down the left sideline for an 83-yard score early in the third quarter.

Williams quickly turned the tide by running the ensuing kickoff back 103 yards for a touchdown and Arbuckle connected with Rogers for a 25-yard score with 27 seconds left in the third for a 21-9 advantage. Harris found Collins for a 26-yard TD early in the fourth and Whyte converted a 31-yard attempt after a fumble by Williams, but Paredes kicked a 27-yarder and Calgary's defence held strong on Edmonton's final three drives.
