B.C. Lions clinch CFL West Division title with 39-19 win over Edmonton
For the sixth time in nine years, the B.C. Lions will play host to the Canadian Football League's Western Final. The Leos locked up top spot in their division and earned a bye in the opening week of next month's playoffs with a 39-19 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos at B.C. Place Stadium on Friday night.
With starting quarterback Travis Lulay sidelined with a sore shoulder, back-up Mike Reilly stepped in and tossed a pair of touchdown passes leading the Lions to their 12th win of the season (12-4).
The game was tied 19-19 early in the fourth quarter before the Lions pulled away to their third straight victory and their seventh win in eight tries on home turf this season.
B.C. will finish the regular season at Calgary (October 26th) and at home to Saskatchewan (November 3rd) before hosting the Western Final at B.C. Place at 1:30pm on Sunday November 18.
