B.C. Lions roar to 24-5 win over Saskatchewan at B.C. Place
It took them a while to get going, but once the B.C. Lions hit their stride, they were simply too much for their opponents. And that's when they ran roughshod over the Saskatchewan Roughriders before 34,343 fans at B.C. Place Sunday afternoon.
The Lions led 7-3 at halftime and then blew the game wide open with 17 straight points before the Riders recorded a late safety. The victory is the Leos' third straight and moves them into first place in the CFL's West Division with a 5-2 record.
In their past three games, the Lions have outscored their opponents (Calgary, Toronto, and Saskatchewan) 76-22 and their rock-solid defence has not allowed a touchdown.
On offence, quarterback Travis Lulay was not spectacular but was solid, completing 22 of 30 pass attempts for 257 yards and a 55-yard touchdown strike to receiver Arland Bruce.
The Lions' next two games are out on the road: Friday (August 24) in Winnipeg and the following Friday (August 31) in Montreal. Their next home game is a September 8 rematch against the Alouettes.
