Sep 14, 2008 - 6:53 AM
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Buck Pierce tossed fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Paris Jackson and Geroy Simon to propel the B.C. Lions to a 28-23 triumph over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday at BC Place.

Pierce, who finished 18-of-33 for 336 yards, found Simon on a 77-yard scoring strike with 3:24 remaining to give the Lions a 28-16 advantage.

The quarterback had hit Jackson for a 43-yard touchdown pass 19 seconds into the fourth quarter.

Wes Cates ran in from a yard out with 1:46 remaining to cut the deficit to five for the Roughriders (8-3), who dropped their third consecutive decision to a division foe.

Saskatchewan quarterback Michael Bishop completed 16-of-29 passes for 298 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
