Game Notes

Game Summary

In a game at B.C. Place Stadium on Friday, the Sacramento Gold Miners beat the B.C. Lions in front of 30,615 fans for their 1st ever victory away from home. It didn’t take the Lions long to open the scoring as they struck at the 2 minute mark of the first quarter for their 1st major of the day on a 34-yard interception return by CB Less Browne. They added to their lead when K Lui Passaglia hit for 2 field goals, from 19 and 16 yards, before Sacramento got on the board with a single to close out the quarter. In the 2nd quarter, K Jim Crouch hit a 32-yard field goal for Sacramento to cut the lead to 13-4 but B.C. came right back to score a TD of its own when WR Lonnie Turner caught a 15-yard pass from QB Danny Barrett. But Sacramento answered quickly as QB David Archer found WR Joe Johnson on a 17-yard pass play for a major to bring the score to 20-11 at the half. In the 3rd quarter, Passaglia booted a 40-yarder while K Pete Gardere of the Miners hit for a single. Sacramento found its groove in the 4th though as they hit for 15 unanswered points when Crouch kicked a single, WR Titus Dixon caught a 33-yard Archer pass and Johnson added his 2nd of the day when he hauled in a 26-yard pass for a TD. That final outburst by the Gold Miners made the final 27-23 in Sacramento’s favour.
