Montreal thumps Hamilton yesterday but the Lions thump Montreal last week. Saskatchewan narrowly beats Winnipeg last week and then gets destroyed by Winnipeg this week. While Calgary is sitting on top of the league with a sterling 9-1 on the season, three of those were won by only a total of 7 points- that's how close those games were. Their record could easily be 6-4.
Though I missed the Saskatchewan/Winnipeg game I was shocked when I heard the final score. What were the Roughies thinking? Wow! And that was against Winnipeg of all teams!
If the Lions can maintain the momentum they have, if they can continue to improve on QB protection, Lions fans may be in for a most memorable second half season.
Next week will be one of the few times I'll be rooting for Calgary when they meet Saskatchewan. A Saskatchewan defeat and a Lions win against Hamilton and it puts B.C. within 2 games of second place in the West. Hmmmmm.... most interesting.
