In another 1 point affair, the B.C. Lions travelled to Ottawa to take on the Rough Riders at Frank Clair Stadium in front of 21,567 and came out victorious 25-24. The Lions opened the scoring at the 15-minute mark of the first quarter when Sean Millington barrelled in from 15 yards out for his first of two majors on the day. Ottawa then followed with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Tom Burgess to Wayne Walker who had 5 catches for 125 yards in the game. Millington then went in for his 2nd TD on a run from 3 yards out to put B.C. back out in front. Ottawa followed with a 28-yard field goal from Terry Baker and a single from Jock Climie to come within 3 points at the half. In the third quarter they regained the lead on a 44-yard field goal and single on a wide field goal, both by Baker who had another of 22 yards to start off the 4th and give Ottawa an 18-14 lead. In what would prove to be a costly piece of misfortune, Ottawa RB Darren Joseph was tackled in the end zone by Tyrone Jones for a safety touch to give B.C. 2 points and the ball back. B.C. then added a 25 yard field goal by Lui Passaglia to give them a 19-18 lead with just under half the quarter remaining. With less than a minute and a half remaining, Ottawa seemed to take control when Jones rambled in from 1 yard out yet they attempted a 2-point convert and failed so it was up to the defence. Unfortunately the B.C. offence proved to be too strong in the remaining minute and marched down the field for a TD of their own when Danny Barrett took it in from 1 yard out to make the final score 25-24 for the Lions.
