MONTREAL -- O'Shane Daley kicked a fumbled ball from a punt into the end zone for a single with 11 seconds remaining as No. 8-ranked Bishop's scored a wild 30-29 victory over McGill in CIS football action on Friday.

McGill's Samy Rassy punted from his own 14-yard line and the return was fumbled, before being punted, and eventually kicked back into the Redmen end zone, where the Gaitors (4-2) were rewarded with a rouge.

The victory was overshadowed by an apparent head or neck injury to Bishop's defensive back Jonathan Fortin early in the fourth quarter. He was put on a spinal board and after a 28-minute delay, was sent to hospital in an ambulance.

Jordan Heather passed for 438 yards and two touchdowns for the Gaitors, including a 16- and a 41-yarder to Stephen Adekolu. Heather also scored on a three-yard run.

McGill (3-3) quarterback Jonathan Collin threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to J.P. Paquette, and he also scored on runs of three yards and one.

Luis Guimont-Mota lugged the ball 27 times for 168 yards for the Redmen.

It's the third time in four games Bishop's has won by one point.

The teams combined for 1,023 yards in total offence -- 515 for Bishop's to 508 for McGill. First downs were almost as evenly split, 32-31 for the Gaitors.
