STAMPEDERS 37 LIONS 9

VANCOUVER - Bo Levi Mitchell started another streak for passing touchdowns, throwing for two majors as the Calgary Stampeders had no trouble disposing of the B.C. Lions 37-9 in a first-place showdown in the CFL's West Division Friday.

The Calgary quarterback had a streak of 21 straight games with at least one passing touchdown snapped last week in the Stamps road win against Saskatchewan but had no trouble with the Lions defence.

The win gave Calgary (6-1-1) a three-point edge in the West Division standings over the Lions (5-3). More importantly, the Stampeders also secured the season series tie-breaker in the final regular season meeting of the teams.

B.C. introduced its special teams unit prior to kickoff and captain Jason Arakgi didn't waste time claiming a league record for tackles, but that was the highlight for the Lions.

Arakgi recorded his 185th career special-teams tackle on the opening kickoff, giving him one more than Wade Miller, who is now president of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

However the Lions offence could only generate three field goals by Richie Leone while Calgary's Mitchell operated the Stampeders offence with relative ease.

I can't see anybody beating Calgary and I hate that.

They've just got too many big time players.

Somehow, someone has to crack the case of BLM's $320,000 contract.

Huffer is using a loophole somewhere to pay these guys.

Luc Mullinder may have to step back from his assertion that BC is the "best team in the CFL".

Just what Bo Loudmouth needed to stroke his already huge ego....

Monahan gives him his spare change.

Definitely some cheating going on there somehow with the flames ownership group.

21,000 fans in BC don't believe in either the CFL or their team again last night. Vancouver area has over 2 million people and they aren't attending.

Pretty much everything that Luc Mullinder and Gary Etchevary have said on their podcast has been proven wrong by reality.
