No Arland Bruce, No Geroy Simon, no Khalif Mitchell...no problem. Even with a rash of injuries and a cobbled together lineup, the BC Lions solidified their hold on first place in the West with a 27-22 win over the Calgary Stampeders at BC Place.
The Lions jumped out to a 17-6 first half lead thanks to Travis Lulay. Lulay connected on two touchdown passes, one to Shawn Gore and another to Nick Moore. Lulay has now thrown a TD pass in 25 straight games, second most in CFL history.
The Lions also won the battle of the backs, as Canadian running back Andrew Harris out performed Stamps back Jon Cornish. Harris had 125 yards from scrimmage while Cornish was kept to under 100.
BC moves to 10-4 on the season and opens up a two game lead in the West...next up will be a trip out East to Hamilton next Friday night.
