Ottawa Redblacks Fall Short Against B.C. Lions
They played better, but it still wasn’t good enough for the Ottawa Redblacks.
The B.C. Lions marched into TD Place stadium on Military Appreciation Night and marched out with a 29-23 victory. The win was built on a combination of special-teams prowess, a smattering of offensive production — despite allowing seven quarterback sacks — and some good fortune.
The winning points came on a quarterback sneak by Travis Lulay with little more than a minute remaining. It was his second score of the night.
The loss, their third in five home games this season, dropped the Redblacks to 4-4-1 overall, while the Lions improved to 6-3 with their fourth triumph in five contests away from home.
Redblacks coach Rick Campbell lamented his team’s mistakes.
“You can’t help the other team out,” he said. “You have to make them earn everything they get.”
