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.

'Eskies' still unbeaten

HAMILTON—Nail-biters are nothing new for the Edmonton Eskimos this season, so quarterback Mike Reilly had no doubt his offence could score a game-winning touchdown with 70 seconds left on the clock.

“We know one-minute-plus in the CFL is forever, really,” said Reilly, who threw three touchdown passes in a 31-28 come-from-behind win against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last night.

Poulter making another run for the claret jug

SOUTHPORT, England—Ian Poulter spent last year's British Open in a TV commentary booth.

Sidelined by a foot injury, it was hard for a competitive animal like Poulter to sit out his home major and watch others challenge for a title he craves the most.

He started making up for lost time today.
