Smith scores 18th touchdown as Lions top Eskimos

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:59 PM
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Joe Smith moved one step closer to CFL immortality on Saturday night.

Smith rushed for his 18th touchdown of the season and Jarious Jackson passed for two more scores in limited action as the B.C. Lions defeated the Edmonton Eskimos, 37-26.

Smith's one-yard touchdown rush in the third quarter moved him to within one score of Mike Pringle's single-season record. Pringle had 19 touchdowns in 2000.

With the loss, Edmonton (5-10-1) can no longer catch the Calgary Stampeders for the final playoff spot in the West Division. The Eskimos only hope is to catch the Montreal Alouettes (7-9-0) and cross over to the East.

Smith rushed for 107 yards on 17 carries and also hauled in a 10-yard reception as the Lions (12-3-1) maintained the top spot in the East Division standings with their sixth consecutive win.

Jackson, who left the game in the second half, completed 10-of-17 passes for 143 yards and touchdowns of 54 and 16 yards. His replacement, Buck Pierce, was effective, passing for 116 yards with no interceptions.
