Game Notes

Game Summary

Continuous thunderstorms throughout the game caused a fumble filled, low scoring game. Heavy rain would seem to lead into the hands of the B.C. Lions as their powerful running game has dominated defences all year long. The 22,000 fans that braved the rain at Winnipeg Stadium saw Gerald Wilcox open the scoring late in the first quarter on a 20 yard passing play from Reggie Slack. Kicker Troy Westwood made the convert. Following a scoreless second quarter B.C. moved the ball 72 yards to set up a 36 yard field goal attempt. Passaglia made good on the attempt to give the Lions their first points of the game. With time running out in the third quarter Passaglia booted another field goal. This time from 22 yards out to bring B.C. within one of Winnipeg. Winnipeg managed to get Westwood two field goal attempts in the fourth quarter while keeping the normally powerful B.C. offence off the board. Westwood made the first attempt from 18 yards out and missed the second attempt from 24 yards. Winnipeg upset the Lions to move their record to 3 wins and 5 losses, putting them in sole possession of fifth place in the Northern Division.
