CFL Game Summary - British Columbia at Calgary
(Friday, August 1)
Final Score: British Columbia 25, Calgary 24
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Glenn threw a 65-yard touchdown pass
to Ernest Jackson in the final minutes of regulation as the British Columbia
Lions stunned the Calgary Stampeders 25-24 at McMahon Stadium.
Glenn completed 22-of-32 pass attempts for 277 yards and had two touchdowns
along with an interception for BC (3-3). Jackson caught three passes for 82
yards and a touchdown and Andrew Harris had 73 yards and a score on five
catches. Harris also rushed for 70 yards on 15 carries.
Calgary (4-1) took its first loss of the season despite a game-high 116
rushing yards from Martell Mallett. Mallett was also the leading receiver,
tallying 59 yards on six receptions. Bo Levi Mitchell threw for 227 yards on
21-of-31 passing and had a touchdown to match an interception.
The first score of the game occurred when Ronnie Yell intercepted Mitchell and
returned the ball 34 yards for a touchdown.
Mitchell made up for the mistake soon after, throwing an 18-yard touchdown
pass to Marquay McDaniel a little more than three minutes later.
BC reclaimed the lead on a 45-yard field goal from Paul McCallum in the
second quarter, but a 63-yard interception return for a touchdown by Keon
Raymond and a one-yard touchdown run by Drew Tate allowed Calgary to enter
halftime with a 21-10 advantage.
BC scored the only points of the third quarter when McCallum connected on
a 21-yard field goal.
Glenn threw a four-yard touchdown pass to Harris early in the fourth quarter,
but the ensuing two-point conversion attempt failed. Despite that, the Lions
trailed by a score of just 21-19.
Rene Paredes gave the Stampeders some breathing room with a 35-yard field goal
with just under six minutes to play.
However, it wouldn't be enough of a cushion, as Glenn threw what turned out to
be the game-winning touchdown pass to Jackson minutes later.
Solomon Elimimian had 10 tackles to add to his CFL-best total (49) ... Glenn
has thrown nine interceptions this season ... Courtney Taylor had a game-high
nine receptions for 60 yards ... Raymond and Deron Mayo each had seven tackles
... Calgary will face Ottawa next Saturday ... BC takes on Hamilton in
its next game.
