Late field goal sinks Bombers

VANCOUVER—Ty Long was talking to his dad earlier this week about how quickly momentum can swing in the CFL.

The rookie kicker has another story to tell the next time they speak.

Long booted a 34-yard field goal with 52 seconds left as the B.C. Lions scored 18 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to earn a wild 45-42 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday night.

Lions rally to beat Eskimos

VANCOUVER—The B.C. Lions cooled off the CFL’s hottest team last night.

Travis Lulay threw a 31-yard touchdown to Andrew Harris with 1:11 left in the fourth quarter as the Lions battled back from a 13-point halftime deficit to beat the Edmonton Eskimos 26-23.

“Just a great job of persevering by our team,” said Lulay.

“We’ve got a lot of better football in us,” he added.
