Joseph helps Roughriders hand Lions first loss

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:28 PM VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Kerry Joseph used his arm and his legs to help the Saskatchewan Roughriders hand the defending Grey Cup Champion B.C. Lions their first loss of the season.

Joseph threw for one touchdown and ran for another to lead the Saskatchewan to a 21-9 victory over B.C. on Thursday.

After Joseph's one-yard TD run at 10:26 of the second quarter gave the Roughriders an 8-1 lead, Jarious Jackson connected with Paris Jackson for an eight-yard score just over two minutes later to forge a tie. However, Joseph threw a 27-yard TD pass to D.J. Flick just before halftime to put Saskatchewan ahead for good, 15-8.

Joseph completed 20-of-33 passes for 261 yards with one touchdown and an interception as Saskatchewan (4-2) moved within two points of B.C. (5-1) for first place in the West Division.

Wes Cates ran for 103 yards on 17 carries for the Roughriders and made a touchdown-saving tackle on Ian Smart, who returned a missed field goal 93 yards with less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter.

The Lions were forced to resort to third-string quarterback Jarious Jackson because of injuries. He went 16-of-38 for 183 yards with three interceptions and a score.
