Lions tame Eskimos in wild battle

Aug 9, 2008 - 7:49 AM
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The B.C. Lions outlasted Ricky Ray and the Edmonton Eskimos, 40-34, in a wild CFL battle on Friday.

Jarious Jackson was in charge of an offensive outburst in the first half that saw B.C. put up 28 points. Jackson threw three touchdown passes and B.C. needed each one as it led after 30 minutes, 28-27.

The defenses tightened up a bit in the second half. The difference proved to be Rolly Lumbala's one-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Jackson was 11-for-24, 150 yards and the three TDs. However, he was pulled in the third quarter after throwing an end-zone interception to Siddeeq Shabazz. Buck Pierce replaced Jackson and went 5-for-10 for 53 yards.

On the other side, Ray was dazzling for the Eskimos. Ray connected on 30-of-44 passes for 436 yards and four touchdowns.

He did throw two interceptions, the last coming with 11 seconds to play when Dante Marsh picked off a pass to seal the Lions' victory.

The Lions and Eskimos are 4-3 and in a three-way tie with the Calgary Stampeders for second place behind the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who are 6-1.
