BC Lions Game Review

Flags and Fumbles and Frustration Oh My

Flags and fumbles foil the feet of the hungry BC Lions, as they take a dismal loss of 30-17 to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.  The game started with a strong showing by the Lions to take an early 7-0 lead. The touchdown from Travis Lulay to Tim Brown gave the equally hungry fans with their first and really only happy moment of the soon to be doomed game.

The BC Lions struggled with a weak defence and even weaker offence on the field. Matched against the 1 defence in the #CFL, the Lions turned over the ball 7 times giving the Blue Bombers the command of the game.

Travis Lulay hit the sidelines while watching backup QB Jarious Jackson take the lead in the late part of the 3rd quarter. Once again, while the crowd was somewhat energized by Jackson's appearance on the field, the costly penalties continued.  By the middle of the 4th quarter the fans were in mass exodus mode. There was a clear disgust within the stands and only the diehard fans remained. (Unless you include all the very happy Blue Bomber fans).

It seemed almost fitting that the skies were dark and dreary compared to the previous home game where the Lions took command of the game and enjoyed their first and only win of the season thus far.

The final home game at Empire Field is slated for Saturday September 10th with a 1pm kickoff against the Toronto Argonauts. This will mark the end of the BC Lions at Empire Field as they will return home to their new lair at the renovated BC PLACE.
