OTTAWA -- The Edmonton Eskimos spent the past seven days in Ottawa and waited until the last possible moments to leave as ungracious guests. Dee Ford Jersey . A 27-yard field goal by Grant Shaw with 20 seconds remaining in the game gave the Eskimos a 10-8 win over the Ottawa Redblacks Friday night. After a 33-23 win over the Alouettes in Montreal last Friday, the Eskimos moved onto Ottawa where they stayed in preparation and anticipation of their game against the Redblacks. The Eskimos drove from their own nine-yard line in the dying minutes after recovering a fumble as the Redblacks were looking to get some insurance points late in the fourth quarter. "I was just doing my job and all the credit goes to the offence at the end and they put together a drive that put us in short field goal range and those should be automatic," Shaw said. "It was definitely a defensive battle and both offences struggled to find the end zone, but thats just how it goes sometimes. I cant wait to get back to my wife and get back to my own home. Ottawas been fun but were all excited to go home." A Hail Mary pass on the final play of the game was batted down by the Edmonton defence to give the Eskimos (6-1) their second win in a row. The Redblacks (1-6), who got two field goals and two singles from kicker Brett Maher, led from the opening drive of the game but still saw their losing slide hit four games. Maher collected all his points in the first half as the Redblacks defence put in their best performance of the year in not allowing an Edmonton touchdown. "Our whole defensive backfield, all six guys, were first-year CFL guys so I was proud of them with stepping up and not being phased in the moment," Redblacks coach Rick Campbell said. "I am proud of our guys. They work hard, theyre trying to do the right things and thats kind of our formula of the way to play football to be competitive and give ourselves a chance to win games, to stay away from penalties, to play well on special teams and obviously we want to get it to where we can win a game." There were several key plays in the second half, including an interception, fumble and turnover on downs by the Eskimos, but none was bigger than the Redblacks first turnover of the game. "Weve had the same situation happen and its frustrating," said Redblacks quarterback Henry Burris, who was 18-for-28 passing for 255 yards to surpass 53,000 career passing yards. "Not finishing drives and little mental mistakes has been killing us. It was visible the things we did on offence moving the ball against a great defence, but when you dont finish all drives and you let a good team like them hang around theyre going to find a way to win in the end." Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly completed 26 of 35 passes for 271 yards and an interception. A 28-yard field goal from Shaw was the only scoring of the third quarter and it pulled the Eskimos to within a single point of the Redblacks at 8-7. After some missed opportunities the Eskimos looked poised to take their first lead of the game, but a third-and-one gamble on the Ottawa 12-yard line could not be converted as Pat White was brought down an inch short. The Redblacks took over on downs and were aided by a roughing the passer call that kept the drive alive. That drive though, that stared on their own 12, ended on the Eskimos nine-yard line with the Matt Carter fumble. The Eskimos then drove the field for the winning score. "The win last week against Montreal we played great in the first half and then we didnt play well in the second half," Eskimos coach Chris Jones said. "Tonight we struggled with some of the same things that hurt us earlier in the year, meaning penalties, fumbling the football, throwing interceptions, so weve got something we really have to clean up." The win would have been sweet redemption for the Redblacks, who fell 27-11 to the Eskimos back in Week 3. The first half of Fridays game played out similarly to the first half of the game in Edmonton back on July 11. The Redblacks led 7-2 at the midway point that night and went into the half Friday with an 8-4 lead. Maher gave the Redblacks a 1-0 advantage on the first drive of the game with a single on a missed 51-yard field goal attempt. He redeemed himself with a 17-yard field goal late in the first quarter. The Eskimos got their first point of the game on a 52-yard punt single from Shaw just 42 seconds into the second quarter. After Maher connected on a 20-yard field goal to give the Redblacks a 7-1 lead, Shaw returned the favour with a 39-yard field goal of his own to make it a three-point game once again. The footwork wasnt finished there though as Maher had another single, this one off a 60-yard punt. The Eskimos tried for a 50-yard field goal late but it was wide and run out of the end zone to end the half. Christian Okoye Jersey . Blackhawks RW Patrick Kane came up big when it counted, tallying two goals and an assist. He scored the game-winner with 4:45 remaining in the third period, stopping on the right hashmarks, carrying the puck up through the top of the Kings zone, then firing a wrist shot from the top of the circles past Jonathan Quick, who had his view obstructed by Andrew Shaw. Charcandrick West Jersey . New York then missed its next six shots and scored only two points the rest of the night. The Los Angeles Clippers defence and the Knicks general ineptitude both played a role in the unsurprising finish to a meeting of two teams headed in opposite directions. http://www.prochiefsauthentic.com/Youth-Terrance-Mitchell-Elite-Jersey/ . Its great to be back for another season in Banditland, and Im looking forward to another competitive season with my teammates, said Tavares. DURHAM, N.C. -- Theyll remember the OT from the first Syracuse-Duke game -- and the Ts that decided Round 2. The rematch of one of college basketballs best games of the season ended with Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim ejected after he charged onto the court to argue a block/charge call. Rodney Hood scored 13 points and drew that game-changing charging call, which helped No. 5 Duke beat No. 1 Syracuse 66-60 on Saturday night. "I just thought that was the worst call of the year, thats all," Boeheim said. "I hated to see the game decided on that call." Freshman Jabari Parker had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Blue Devils (22-6, 11-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). Jerami Grant had 17 points and C.J. Fair, the player who was called for the charge, finished with 13 for the Orange (25-2, 12-2). The first meeting between these teams was an overtime game considered an instant classic and won by Syracuse. The rematch was just as close but it will be remembered more for Boeheims exit with about 10 seconds to play. "Both teams were worthy of winning this game, and both teams were worthy of winning up there," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. "So going 1-1 was probably the way it should be." Syracuse had the ball down 60-58 when Fair drove for an apparent tying layup. But official Tony Greene whistled Fair for charging -- and Boeheim shot onto the court to argue. Greene slapped him with two technical fouls and ejected him. "People will remember this one for 30 years because the old coach went out there and got a little excited," Boeheim said. "I think the fans will remember Jim Boeheim down here. Two great games." Quinn Cook iced it by hitting three free throws with 10.4 seconds left to make it 63-58. That helped the Blue Devils bounce back from a loss to hated rival North Carolina less than 48 hours earlier. It meant they avoided their first regular-season losing streak since 2009 and it extended their winning streak at Cameron Indoor Stadium to 31 games. "Thats the way its going to be in the ACC tournament and then the NCAA," Parker said. "Weve got to play back-to-back competitive games, but I think were going to get used to it." Meanwhile, the Orange -- whose 25-0 start was spoiled three nights earlier by an overtime loss at home to sub-.500 Boston College -- are the first top-ranked team to lose twice in a week since Texas in 2010. "I dont think well probably play anymore," Boeheim said, his words laced with sarcasm. "I think well just give up." It was Dukes ninth win over a No. 1-ranked team and first since 1997. Star freshman Tyler Ennis of Brampton, Ont., finished with nine points on 2-of-13 shooting and he and fellow starting guard Trevor Cooney combined to miss all five of theiir 3-point attempts for the Orange. Tyreek Hill Jersey. . Three times in the final 90 seconds, they had the ball down by three or fewer points -- but all anyone will remember is that drive by Fair. He blew past Tyler Thornton along the left baseline and -- as Hood slid over to cut him off -- he flipped up a shot that banked in. Greene blew his whistle and waved it off to call Fair for charging. "Regardless of whether they called a block or a charge, I was going to be there and help Tyler out," Hood said. "I honestly didnt know (what the call would be). ... I thought I was there the whole time, but you never know." That brought an incensed Boeheim off the bench and well onto the court to argue. Once he was tossed, the game was effectively over. "I think maybe (if) we didnt get the techs, we probably still had a chance to win," Fair said. This one always seemed destined for a tight finish, even after Duke appeared to take control down the stretch. The Blue Devils scored on six consecutive possessions, keyed by Cooks 3-pointer that pushed the lead to 53-47 with just under 7 minutes left. Three trips later, Parker soared to dunk the rebound of Hoods missed 3 -- which restored the Blue Devils six-point lead and sent the Cameron Crazies into earsplitting delirium. But Ennis followed with a layup and Grant hit a jumper in transition, and things stayed tight until those technical fouls. The game again matched the two winningest mens coaches in Division I history in Hall of Famers Krzyzewski and Boeheim -- who, by the end of the night, combined for 1,924 victories. Round 1 went to Boeheim earlier this month in a game for the ages, with the Orange claiming a 91-89 victory in overtime after Dukes Rasheed Sulaimon hit a buzzer-beating, tying 3 at the end of regulation before 35,446 fans at the Carrier Dome. There were about one-quarter of that many at 9,314-seat Cameron -- but the 74-year-old building rocked all night with a ferocity usually reserved for the annual visit from North Carolina. "Another great game. Different from the first one because it seemed like both teams were scoring easy up in Syracuse, and today it was really difficult to score," Krzyzewski said. "I dont know how either team could play any harder." And from the opening tip, this one felt like a continuation of that OT thriller -- with players from both sides turning in highlight-reel plays, from Marshall Plumlees vicious dunk of a missed 3 by Sulaimon, to Ennis emphatic block of a layup by Cook. Syracuse maxed out its lead at nine on a 3-pointer by Duke transfer Michael Gbinije midway through the first half. The Blue Devils rallied to tie it at 26 at the break on Sulaimons fast-break layup with about a minute left, and it stayed tense the rest of the way.
