TORONTO - Richie Leone's 30-yard field goal as time expired earned the B.C. Lions an exciting 16-13 win over the Toronto Argonauts on a breezy Wednesday night, spoiling Ricky Ray's return.

Ray was back for Toronto after missing three starts with a knee injury. He opened the game impressively, completing his first 14 passes, as the two teams took turns playing with and against a brisk 17 kilometre-an-hour wind.

But it was B.C. quarterback Jonathon Jennings who marched the Lions 61 yards on 10 plays, setting up Leone's game-winning boot. Jennings finished 20-of-29 passing for 188 yards and an interception.

Ray was 24-of-29 passing for 213 yards, with a TD and interception before an energetic BMO Field gathering of 17,509 _ the Argos' second-highest attendance this season.

B.C. (7-3) improved to 5-1 on the road and registered its first-ever sweep of games in Ontario. The Lions earned a 29-23 win in Ottawa last week.

Toronto (4-5) suffered its third straight home loss and fell to 1-5 at BMO Field.

Riders kept Sunseri and Smith over Jennings. Really, they did. I guess he just wasn't Rider caliber.

How very well Eliminian has rebounded from his Achilles injury! Better than ever. Bodes well for the Raven's Terrell Suggs
