Riders Fall In OT To Eskimos

At Edmonton, Alberta:

Quarterback Mike Reilly threw for 336 yards and four touchdowns on Friday night, three of them to Adarius Bowman, while Sean Whyte kicked two field goals, one from 51 yards at the end of regulation and the other from 32 yards out in overtime as the Edmonton Eskimos (1-1) came from behind to upend the visiting Saskatchewan Roughriders (0-2) 39-36 in Canadian Football League play.

After their go-ahead three-pointer in overtime, the Esks' defense prevented Riders quarterback Darian Durant from picking up a first down on a third down and short yardage play to preserve the victory.
