LIONS 26 STAMPEDERS 22
Backup quarterback Thomas DeMarco also scored a touchdown for B.C. as the Lions improved to 5-2 and moved into a tie for second place with the Stampeders, who are also 5-2.
B.C. avenged a one-sided season-opening loss to the Stampeders and ended their winning streak at four games.
The Lions earned their remaining points from a Paul McCallum field goal, three converts and a late safety conceded by Calgary.
Jon Cornish and Marquay McDaniel scored touchdowns for Calgary, while Rene Paredes furnished two field goals and a pair of converts. B.C. also surrendered a safety.
The Lions' defence entered the game with a clear mission to stop Cornish, and held Calgary's star running back to 73 rushing yards and a touchdown, one week after the Canadian scored four TD's in the Stampeders game against Saskatchewan.
Lulay completed 16 of 28 passes for 223 yards while Glenn was good on 22 of 38 pass attempts for 199 yards.
Notes: The Lions made a last-minute uniform change to what the club called new "gun-metal grey'' attire featuring orange paws and piping. The new duds effectively camouflaged black, orange-borded jersey numbers from a distance ... Calgary lost veteran receiver Nik Lewis in the first half. General manager and coach John Hufnagel said after game that Lewis suffered a broken fibula.
