Nags at Pies Game Thread, Sat Sept 6, 7 pm et

Sat September 6
Calgary at Edmonton

Calgary seeks a sweep of the Labour Day back to back as the Esks hope to avenge the Labour Day loss at McMahon. Will Mike Reilly be good to go for Edmonton? I expect a pushback from the home club, but unless they can solve Jon Cornish this time, even if Reilly and Fred Stamps return, it may not be enough.

It will be a slobberknocker!

Oski Wee Wee,


Game is nwo underway. So far the punters are busier than the receivers! Neither QB has made more than 2-3 plays before being shut down. Nichols in for Reilly again. The EE in their signature unis which to my mind sont look that much different than their regular - sans arm stripes. Do like the striping` detail on the helmets though.

Nags are on the score board with a FG but so far,like many other games this season, more defense than offense is evident. Three Nag defenders with a motorcycle celebration after sacking Nichols. That`s a little bold! :cowboy:

EE called for a too many men in the huddle penalty. Then an pass from Nichols to Chamber with an assist from nag Lemon! :lol: trying for the PKD.

End of the first quarter and they have 6 FD COMBINED! (4+2)

Hi folks!

EE offense FINALLY got some traction and almost half way through the 2nd quarter Nichols gets a pass to Guyton who runs it in for the first TD of the weekend! :roll: 7-3 EE

Must be catching (pun intended) but the nags just managed to drive down the field and ex-Ticat Charbonneau with his first TD! Nice going! :slight_smile: 10-7 Nags. Glad this isnt turning out like last nights snoozer! :roll:

Hi Oski!

Nags with a second TD to give them a 10 pt lead. 17-7. EE don`t want to dig too deep a hole here. They do get a stop and will try to put more points on the board with about 1 minute remaining to the half.

Fear the beard hits a FG...17-10 Calgary at the half.

O`Neill in for Shaw (injury or performance) boots the chip shot to run out the clock at the half and bring the EE score to 10. One score game 17-10

Costly turnover for the EE as Nichols loses the ball when sacked and Nags scoop it up. One play later. Bo tosses the TD to McDaniel to give the Nags a 2 score lead - 24-10.

Nags on the move again and Bo runs it in for the major putting the Nags up by 3 TDs :rockin: 31-10 nags!

White now in for the underperforming (?) Nichols but just overthrew Stamps for a sure TD. Stamps (as in Fred) with a HUGE FD PU deep in enemy territory! End of the third.
EE in the red zone but a penalty on 2nd and short means that they have to go for the FG rather than the major. 31-13 Nags.

We has a game now fols!

34-27 nags 234 left in the game

Nags with a 79 yd three-play drive an a major score put the game pretty much out of reach 41-27 Nags with under 2 to play.

EE respond with their own TD drive but with about 20 seconds left will have to win the onside kick - but they don't Ex-Ticat Charbonneau with the catch on the kick. Final 41-34 Nags.
