Lions 53 Blue Bombers 17
Buck Pierce. On a night the Bombers gave their fans no reason to cheer for them, the fans cheered instead for the former Bombers starter, who earned a standing ovation when he entered the game in the 4th quarter with his Lions up 47-14.
With the Bombers trailing 18-7 in the 2nd quarter and threatening to get back into the game, Lions DB Dante Marsh intercepted Bombers QB Max Hall and returned the ball 80 yards for a Lions TD.
Will Ford's fumble on the opening play from scrimmage, which BC linebacker Adam Bighill promptly returned 30 yards for a touchdown, was the 5th time in 13 games this season that the Bombers turned the ball over on their opening drive.
