LIONS 29 REDBLACKS 23

OTTAWA - Travis Lulay rushed for two touchdowns on Thursday as the B.C. Lions defeated the Ottawa Redblacks 29-23.

Lulay came in on goal-line situations for the Lions, replacing starting quarterback Jonathon Jennings, and scored twice from one-yard out, including the winning score at 12:26 of the fourth quarter.

Lulay then completed a pass for the two-point conversion and the 29-23 lead.

Chris Milo had kicked a 47-yard field goal at 11:14 to give the Redblacks (4-4-1) a 23-21 lead, but they were unable to score on their final possession after turning the ball over on downs.

Jennings threw for 289 yards and a touchdown for the Lions (6-3), who were able to rebound from a tough home loss to the Calgary Stampeders last week.

Trevor Harris was making his first start since injuring his leg and ankle in a game against Saskatchewan July 22 and threw for 352 yards and a touchdown.
