Burris throws for 2 TDs, runs for another as Stampeders beat Lions

Aug 28, 2010 - 6:25 AM VANCOUVER (CP) - Quarterback Henry Burris threw two touchdown passes and ran for one himself as the Calgary Stampeders extended their domination over the B.C. Lions with a 48-35 victory Friday night.

Burris tossed a 48-yard touchdown pass to Deon Murphy and a 20-yard strike to Ken-Yon Rambo as the Stampeders improved their West Division-leading record to 7-1.

Burris also scored on a nine-yard run as the Stampeders won their ninth consecutive game against the Lions.

There were some anxious moments late in the third quarter when B.C. receiver Darius Passmore ran into one of the signs along the side of Empire Field.

The corner of the sign looked to hit him in the face or chest. Passmore lay on the turf for several minutes while medical staff from both teams attended him.

Passmore was placed on a stretcher but gave the crowd a thumbs-up as he was taken off the field.

Arjei Franklin also scored for Calgary on a three-yard run. The crowd of 25,127 began heading to the exits when backup quarterback Drew Tate scored on a one-yard plunge midway through the fourth.

Tate also threw a 20-yard pass to Rambo.

Rob Maver kicked field goals of 37 and 11 yards.

The humiliating loss was another sour note in a sad season for the Lions.

It was the seventh consecutive defeat for B.C., which has a league-worst 1-7 record. The Lions are also 0-4 at home this season.

B.C. quarterback Casey Printers, who returned to the lineup after missing four games with a knee injury, threw a 48-yard touchdown to Emmanuel Arceneaux late in the game and scored on a one-yard run.

Jamal Robertson also scored on a one-yard run on a play set up by a Lions' interception.

Backup quarterback Travis Lulay hit Geroy Simon with a 38-yard touchdown pass on the last play of the game.

Paul McCallum kicked field goals of 40 and 33 yards.

The only player who seemed capable of stopping Burris on the night was Burris himself. The strong-armed quarterback completed 20 of 34 passes for 276 yards.

When Burris wasn't beating the Lions deep, he was dumping off short passes. Rambo was his favourite target, catching nine passes for 108 yards and the two touchdowns.

When he couldn't find an open receiver, Burris pulled down the ball and ran himself, picking up some key first downs and the touchdown.

Burris also was his own worst enemy. He threw the ball into coverage, resulting in three Lion interceptions. He leads the CFL with 12 interceptions.

Printers showed some signs of rust after his long layoff. He enjoyed early success, marching B.C. to a touchdown on the Lions' first possession.

After that Printers struggled. He over threw some open receivers and was short on other passes.

He finished the game completing 10 of 26 passes for 191 yards.

The Stamps looked to be comfortably in control when Rambo's first touchdown gave them a 24-10 lead midway through the second quarter.

The Lions battled back with 10 points in just under two minutes. A McCallum field goal cut into the lead, then Dante Marsh picked off a Burris pass at the Stampeder 27.

A great catch by Simon, where he walked a tightrope along the sidelines, set up Robertson's touchdown.

An early mistake allowed Calgary to build a quick lead.

Maver was short on an attempted field goal but B.C.'s Yonus Davis fumbled on the return, giving Calgary the ball on Lions' nine. That set up a Burris touchdown.

Later Burris launched a 48-yard bomb to Murphy, who got between B.C. halfback Stanley Franks and safety Tad Crawford.

Printers battled back, hitting Arceneaux with a 44-yard pass, then scoring himself on a quarterback sneak.
