BC edges Calgary to set record for wins

Jan 9, 2008 - 6:06 PM
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The BC Lions establish a franchise record for wins with a 25-24 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday night.

Calgary kicker Sandro DeAngelis hit the upright on a 52-yard field goal attempt on the game's final play. That miss gave the Lions the victory, their 14th of the season. B.C. had won 13 games four different times since entering the CFL in 1954.

The win meant little in the standings, as the Lions (14-3-1) already had clinched first place in the West Divison. BC does not play again until November 18 in the West Division championship. Calgary journeys to Regina next Sunday for the West semifinals.

Slotback Geroy Simon was the main offensive threat for the Lions with five catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns. The performance gave Simon the CFL receiving title for the second straight year. He finished with 72 catches, 1,293 yards and six touchdowns.

Paul McCallum kicked field goals of 15, 17 and 24 yards for B.C.

Calgary starting quarterback, Henry Burris, and running back Joffrey Reynolds did not play. Ben Sankey completed 21-of-26 passes for 328 yards and two TDs and Ken Simontonran for 114 yards on 18 carries.
