GUELPH, Ont. Air Max 97 Mujer Rosa . -- It was the wettest game that Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly has ever played in, and thats saying something for a guy who played his college football in the rainy state of Washington. "Ive never seen it come down like that, especially for the entire game," said the 28-year-old who led the Eskimos to a 30-20 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday night with two touchdown throws and a 12-yard TD rush in a torrential downpour. "Its tough. The ball gets heavy. Its getting slippery," he said, likening it to trying to catch a watermelon. Edmonton had already jumped out to a 16-0 lead before the rains came and the Ticats were forced to play catch up in awful conditions. That early lead was a "huge" advantage, according to Reilly. "When the weather hit, then it was just a chess match of back and forth and field position," he said. "And at that point in time, if you got a ball in the end zone, then you feel pretty lucky." Reilly completed 14-of-22 pass attempts for 130 yards. It was the Ticats home opener at Alumni Stadium, home to the University of Guelph Gryphons, which was temporarily expanded this season to seat a capacity 13,000 while a new stadium is built in Hamilton. Game attendance for the home opener was announced as 12,612, but most of those made a run for it when the rains came heavy in the second quarter. Hugh Charles had two touchdowns and Fred Stamps added one for Edmonton while CJ Gable and Ed Gant scored for Hamilton. Hamilton kicker Luca Congi made two of three field-goal attempts, from 39 and 26 yards and missed from 42. Edmonton improved to 1-1 after a 39-18 loss to Saskatchewan last week. After putting up 34 points in last weeks 39-34 loss to Toronto, the Ticats (0-2) could only muster 20 points in the weather. "They played with more energy than us," said Hamilton QB Henry Burris, who completed 18-of-35 pass attempts for 229 yards, one TD and two interceptions. "Weve got to do a better job of seizing momentum when we get some momentum. We killed ourselves with penalties. I had the turnover when we were backed up. "Regardless of what conditions we play in, this is football and youre going to have days like this when theres going to be rain. But weve got to be able to respond better than that." Twice, early in the first quarter, Hamilton first downs were called back by offside penalties to receiver Simon Charbonneau-Campeau. Coach Kent Austin was quick to point out, however, that those two penalties werent specifically what cost the Ticats. But they were an example. "Thats the perfect example of two mistakes where we (could) stay on the football field (but) where they get us off the football field," he said. Hamilton had five fumbles on the night -- four of them by Lindsey Lamar on returns, of which he lost one -- and two interceptions. Edmonton fumbled three times and lost it once. Congi hit field goals from 39 and 26 yards as the Ticats picked away at the lead during a second quarter where the field was barely playable. Edmonton led 16-13 at the half. Charles looked to be in the dog house when he fumbled the opening kickoff and the Ticats recovered at the Edmonton 40-yard line. But they couldnt convert as Congi missed a 42-yard field-goal attempt and Edmonton ran it out. The Esks scored on the ensuing possession as Charles redeemed himself with a 70-yard TD run. After scoring a safety followed by an 11-yard TD grab by Stamps to finish a 61-yard, five-play drive, Hamiltons Gable drove the ball in from the two-yard line to cap a 38-yard drive. He was aided by two penalties against Edmonton including pass interference in the end zone to make it 16-7 before the downpour came to end the quarter. Neither team got much going to start the second half as the rain continued to pour. But Edmontons TJ Hill intercepted Burris midway through the third quarter on the Hamilton 27 and the Esks needed three plays before Reilly found Charles for the 13-yard score. Edmonton led 23-13 heading into the fourth. Five minutes into the fourth, Reilly capped an 83-yard drive with a 12-yard TD run giving Edmonton a 30-13 lead. The Ticats answered with Gant, who showed up in Hamilton from Edmonton just this week, catching a 40-yard TD pass from Burris to pull to 30-20 with 6:22 left. Air Max 98 Og Gundam . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. Air Max 98 Blancas . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. PHOENIX -- A Colorado woman who completed a nearly 82-mile swim across Lake Powell in 56 hours said Friday the vast distance wasnt her biggest fear.I wasnt concerned about the distance. I had trained and worked for that part, Sarah Thomas told The Associated Press a day after completing what is believed to be a record-breaking marathon swim. But how do you stay awake that long?Thomas, who was still in bed after sleeping nearly 12 hours, said she credits the little bit of caffeine in the liquid carbohydrate and electrolyte mixtures she consumed every 30 minutes during the swim.The 34-year-old from Conifer didnt stop swimming or get out of the water the entire time, allowing her to qualify for a possible record for an unassisted marathon swim.She had a team of 13 people with her who traveled by house boat and gave her food every half hour in the form of a water bottle tied to a cord.Thomas swam mostly freestyle but occasionally switched to backstroke or breaststroke to loosen up. The grueling swim made it difficult to walk afterward because her feet and body were so shaky.Exhausted and hungry, her first post-swim meal wasnt until breakfast the next day.This morning my husband tracked me down an omelet and some hash browns. I have to say it was the best food Ive had in my life, Thomas said.Thomas had done six major marathon swims since 2010, including efforts in Lake Tahoe and the English Channel. But none were as long as her journey on Lake Powell along the Arizona-Utah border.She initially planned to swim in the ocean off the California coast but decided a lake might be better and began a search for the right one.There are not a lot of lakes that are big enough and logistically make sense, she said.She chose Lake Powell for its amenities and proximity to Colorrado. Saucony Jazz Mujer Negras. er training consisted of at least 25 hours of swimming each week since April. At the peak, she averaged 50 miles a week.She said she was able to commit the time to training partly due to being able to work from home in her job as a hospital recruiter.The San Francisco-based Marathon Swimmers Federation will have the task of verifying Thomas swim.Co-founder Evan Morrison said two independent observers, who are well-known marathon swimmers as well, were present to see her swim.They have the knowledge and the credibility. Its not just Sarah asking her brother to come out and say `Oh yeah, my sister did this, Morrison said.A federation panel comprised of 16 members from the U.S. and other countries will review logs, GPS tracking data and any photos and video.Morrison expects everything to pass muster, calling Thomas one of the most well-respected and well-known swimmers in recent years.The current record holder for an unassisted solo, open-water swim is Australian swimmer Chloe McCardel. In October 2014, she swam 77.3 miles in the ocean in the Bahamas in a little over 41 hours.Thomas swim was in a body of water with no current impacting her.So, in one sense its a different category, Morrison said. In another sense, 81.8 miles is longer than 77.3. If ratified, it will be the longest unassisted solo swim in any body of water.Thomas has no plans for more marathons until the Cook Strait in 2018. In the meantime, she plans to just keep swimming. Distance, not speed, has always been the draw for her.I may not be the fastest but Im happy to keep going and going, she said.---AP reporter Josh Hoffner contributed to this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
