The BC Lions knocked off Saskatchewan 30-15 in a game that was much more one-sided than the score reflects.
The Lions jumped out to an 18-0 lead by the end of the half and held a 30-0 lead late in the fourth quarter before the Green and White could get a touchdown. It was a rough night for Riders pivot Kevin Glenn, who threw for 186 yards and two interceptions. On the other end of the field, Lions quarterback Travis Lulay had his way with Saskatchewan's defense, throwing for 338 yards and a touchdown. In the final 3 minutes, down 30 points, the Riders put Brandon Bridge in as pivot and he showed his athletic ability, connecting on a highlight-reel pass and catch by Duron Carter for a 46 yard touchdown. He would connect with Naaman Roosevelt for another touchdown late. The loss drops Saskatchewan to 2-4 on the year, but more importantly 0-3 against teams in the West Division. They'll have a chance to exact their revenge next week when the two teams meet up in Regina for the second half of the home and home. There was one other positive from the game. In the second half, a 26 yard pass by Glenn put him alone in 5th in the all-time passing list, moving him ahead of Riders legend Ron Lancaster.
