The struggling B.C. Lions hosted the powerhouse Calgary Stampeders Saturday night in Vancouver and B.C. held their ground in the first quarter. K Lui Passaglia kicked field goals from 37 and 44 yards out for the Lions. Calgary countered with an 11 yard touchdown pass from Jeff Garcia to Travis Moore. Mark McLoughlin’s convert gave Calgary a lead which they refused to give up. The Stampeders dominated the second quarter scoring putting 21 points on the board in a three minute time frame. RB Kelvin Anderson got the first of the three TDs with a 1 yard run to complete a 61 yard Calgary drive. Less than a minute later, Garcia took advantage of an interception by Alfred Jordan sending a 35 yard touchdown pass to SB Allen Pitts. McLoughlin kicked the convert. Turnovers continued to hurt the Lions. Allen was intercepted by Alondra Johnson setting up the Calgary offence for another drive. The Stamps moved the ball into the Lions end zone seven plays later as Garcia called his own number carrying the ball in from the 5 yard line. McLoughlin’s convert made the half-time score 28 to 6 in favour of the Stamps. Scoring slowed to a snail’s pace for the remainder of the game. The teams exchanged singles in the third, Calgary’s by P Anthony Martino and B.C.’s on a missed 44 yard field goal by Passaglia. In the fourth quarter, B.C. was held scoreless and Calgary kicker McLoughlin sent a 38 yard field goal through to make the final 32 to 7 for the Stampeders. The win keeps Calgary in a tie with Toronto for overall points as both squads have 6 and 1 records.
