Lions again defeat Stampeders in Calgary

Oct 23, 2010 - 5:38 AM CALGARY, Alberta (CP) - The only team to beat the Calgary Stampeders at home this season did it again Friday as the B.C. Lions downed the hosts 36-31 at McMahon Stadium.

B.C.'s victory foiled Calgary's bid to secure first place in the West Division, but the Stampeders (11-5) could still do that this weekend should the Saskatchewan Roughriders fall to Edmonton on Saturday.

Calgary faces Hamilton at home next week and concludes the regular season on the road versus Winnipeg.

The Lions (6-10) continue to battle for their playoff lives with games remaining against Saskatchewan next week and then Hamilton.

Lions kicker Paul McCallum made four field goals, including three in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Travis Lulay, Richard Jones and Emmanuel Arceneaux scored touchdowns for B.C.

Nik Lewis had a pair of touchdown catches for Calgary in front of 28,054 at McMahon Stadium. Ken-Yon Rambo and Keon Raymond also scored TD's and Rob Maver kicked a field goal.

Elsewhere in the CFL on Friday, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats shocked the East-Division-leading Montreal Alouettes 40-3.

The Lions are the only team to have beaten Calgary at home this season, which they did in a 29-10 decision Sept. 25 at McMahon Stadium.

Calgary was in range for the winning touchdown in the final minute, but an uncovered Arjei Franklin dropped Henry Burris' pass in the end zone. Burris couldn't punch the ball through to Lewis on the next play and was intercepted by B.C.'s Anthony Reddick with 14 seconds remaining.

Lulay completed 16-of-25 pass attempts for 255 yards and one touchdown. He was intercepted twice. Burris was 27 for 42 and 373 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

McCallum was good from 35 yards at 5:54, 27 yards at 9:50 and 33 yards at 12:38 of the fourth quarter to put the visitors ahead.

B.C.'s Yonus Davis, who blitzed Calgary for 244 return yards on Sept. 25, gave his team field position for the Lions' last two field goals of the quarter with punt returns of 46 and 49 yards.

After a wild first half, Maver's 20-yard field goal was the only score of the third quarter, but it gave Calgary a 31-27 lead. Raymond made a key interception in the third quarter, snatching a long bomb from Lulay to Steven Black and giving Calgary the ball on their own 27-yard-line.

After falling behind 20-0, Calgary wrested momentum back in the second quarter with four touchdowns, but gave up another TD to B.C. before the end of the half.

Lewis's second scoring catch of the night was spectacular as he spun clockwise in the air to haul in Burris's 19-yard pass. It capped a 10-play, 90-yard march by the hosts and gave them 28-27 lead heading into the half.

B.C.'s Lulay and Arceneaux combined on a 74-yard touchdown pass at 12:31.

As he was dragged down by Calgary's Charleston Hughes, Lulay coughed up the ball to Raymond who ran the ball back 47 yards for a touchdown at 11:36.

Burris connected with Lewis, who broke Tad Crawford's tackle and dove over Stanley Franks for a 10-yard TD at 9:53. Rambo had to lean out of the end zone to catch Burris's 27-yard throw, but the receiver kept his back foot on the other side of the goal-line to make it count at 4:04.

B.C. scored a defensive touchdown to end the first quarter and opened the second with a field goal for a 20-point cushion. Adam Leonard knocked the ball loose from Calgary running back Jon Cornish. Jones recovered the ball and rumbled 50 yards for the touchdown.

An earlier Stampeder drive stalled three yards from the end zone when B.C.'s Franks stripped the ball from Rambo.

The Lions scored quickly off the opening kickoff. Lulay and Black combined on a 65-yard passing play, with Steven Black breaking three Stampeder tackles to get down to the 11-yard line. Lulay ran the ball in for the touchdown.

Canadian running back Jesse Lumsden made his debut as a Stampeder. In his first game since injuring his shoulder in the 2009 season-opener, Lumsden was put to work on special teams blocking for the returners.
