LIONS 32 ESKIMOS 25

VANCOUVER - Emmanuel Arceneaux caught eight passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns, including a brilliant 70-yard score, as the B.C. Lions defeated the Edmonton Eskimos 32-25 on Saturday.

Jonathon Jennings connected on both TDs to Arceneaux and ran in another for B.C.

Mike Reilly threw one touchdown to Adarius Bowman and scored another on a run for Edmonton. John White also scored on a TD scamper for the visitors.

Richie Leone connected on 3-of-4 field goals for the Lions. Sean Whyte was perfect on his only attempt for the Eskimos.

The Lions (10-6) entered play having lost three of four, including last week's crushing 35-32 defeat to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers that saw them blow a 10-point lead with under seven minutes to go. B.C. turned the ball over an eye-popping six times in that one, but played a clean game on Saturday.

The Eskimos (8-8), meanwhile, saw their three-game winning streak snapped while coming off a bye in a key West Division showdown.
