ARGOS 30 LIONS 27

VANCOUVER - Ronnie Pfeffer nailed his third field goal of the night with 46 seconds left in the fourth quarter as the Toronto Argonauts stormed back from an early 21-0 deficit to stun the B.C. Lions 30-27 on Friday night.

The rookie kicker's 29-yard attempt capped an impressive comeback led by quarterback Trevor Harris, who threw two touchdown passes to go along with two interceptions for the Argonauts (3-1). Harris also scored on a two-yard TD run.

Andrew Harris ran in two scores and added another through the air in the game's first 15 minutes 40 seconds for the Lions (2-2) as B.C. built an early 21-0 lead before Toronto started its comeback. Travis Lulay finished with one touchdown pass against one interception.

With the score tied 21-21 in the fourth quarter and the Lions' offence stuck in neutral, Richie Leone nailed a 39-yard field goal with just over six minutes remaining for the home side's first points since early in the second.

But Trevor Harris drove his team back the other way and hooked up with Natey Adjei with 3:31 to play to give the Argonauts their first lead at 27-24 after Pfeffer failed to connect on a 32-yard convert attempt.

Shaq Murray-Lawrence returned the ensuing kickoff to Toronto's 35-yard line, but B.C. could only attempt another field goal, which Leone nailed from 42 yards out to tie the score 27-27 with 2:22 on the clock before Pfeffer booted the winning points.

Travis Lulay can run, but his throwing ability ain't what it used to be.

I have to say, the CFL games have been far more exciting than the lopsided affairs that plagued the league last year.

Time for Tedford to take over the Lion's defense. Brutal!
