B.C. 28 TORONTO 23
Travis Lulay passed for two touchdowns and 390 yards Saturday as the B.C. Lions held on to beat the Toronto Argonauts 28-23.
The B.C. quarterback extended his touchdownpass streak to 22 games, moving into second place all-time behind Montreal Alouettes legend Sam Etcheverry.
Lulay completed 24 of 40 passes as the Lions (8-3) posted their sixth win in seven games.
Shawn Gore, Arland Bruce and Rolly Lumbala scored touchdowns for B.C.
"We overcame a slow start, I think that was important for us because it's not always going to be perfect smooth sailing all the time - and that first quarter was ugly, as an offensive group," Lulay said.
Cornerback Matt Black, off a fumble return, and receiver Chad Owens scored touchdowns for the Argos (7-4). The Lions led most of the game but had to hold off a late Toronto rally after Owens' 52-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter pulled Toronto to within five points.
The Argos threatened in the final minute, advancing to the Lions' 20-yard line. But B.C. middle linebacker Adam Bighill recovered a Ricky Ray fumble after Lions defensive lineman Khreem Smith knocked the ball loose. B.C. then ran out the clock to preserve the win.
