Simon's late TD grab secures home playoff game for Lions

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:57 PM
EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- The B.C. Lions will treat their fans to a home playoff game.

Geroy Simon hauled in a six-yard touchdown strike from Jarius Jackson with less than four minutes left as the Lions edged the Edmonton Eskimos, 24-18, on Saturday.

With the win, the Lions (11-3-1) secured home-field advantage for their first postseason contest. It also helped the Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-5) clinch a playoff berth.

Jackson completed 15-of-28 passes for 245 yards and one score with an interception. His favorite target was Jason Clermont, who made seven catches for 178 yards.

Ian Smart and Joe Smith each had a rushing touchdown for B.C., which has won five straight contests.

Eskimos quarterback Stefan LeFors passed for 250 yards with three interceptions but did add 60 yards and a score on the ground.

Edmonton (5-9-1) remained two points behind Calgary for third place in the West Division.
