Game Notes

Game Summary

The B.C. Lions first game of a three game road trip had them at Taylor Field in Regina to play the Roughriders. High winds plagued this game giving the team with the wind a strong advantage. Strong running games by Sean Millington and Cory Philpot gave B.C. the edge. B.C. opened the scoring as Saskatchewan punter Brent Matich conceded a safety. This same scene repeated itself two minutes later giving B.C. an early 4 to 0 lead. All-time CFL points leader Lui Passaglia added to his totals by hitting a 45 yard field goal. Later in the quarter, Millington ran in the first of two touchdowns for the night from the 1-yard line. Passaglia’s convert rounded out scoring for the quarter. Darren Joseph opened Saskatchewan’s scoring in the second half. His one yard TD run capped the ’Riders first scoring drive of the game. Kicker Dave Ridgway booted the convert. Passaglia hit his second field goal of the game, this time from 35 yards out. Saskatchewan countered with a 33 yard Ridgway field goal only to have Passaglia boot another FG just before half time. The ’Riders dominated the third quarter. Two passing touchdowns, one 34 yards to Joseph and another 31 yards to Elbert Turner, gave Saskatchewan the lead. Ridgway’s missed field goal scored a single and gave the ’Riders a 5 point lead at the end of three quarters. Unfortunately for Saskatchewan, B.C. had the wind at their backs for the fourth quarter and they took advantage of it. Passaglia got a single point after missing a 34 yard field goal attempt to start B.C. on their comeback. Millington took the lead back scoring a 24 yard touchdown. Passaglia continued his perfect day kicking converts. Cory Philpot scored the next Lion touchdown taking the ball in from the 12-yard line. Punter Giulio Caravatta took advantage of the high winds launching the ensuing kickoff 75 yards into the end zone for a single. Philpot carried the ball on seven of eight plays during B.C.’s next possession and scored the touchdown running the ball in from the 12-yard line. The high powered B.C. offence proved to be too much for Saskatchewan as they bettered their record to 6 wins and 1 loss.
