It was a tremendous game - well played by both teams - the difference:
Duncan O'Mahony kicked a 40-yard field goal in overtime to give the B.C. Lions a 27-25 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the West Division Final at B.C. Place in Vancouver. O'Mahony had to make a 47-yard field goal with seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to the extra frame. Riders' kicker Paul McCallum missed a 17-yard field goal on Saskatchewan's possession in overtime.
McCallum also missed a 39 field goal during the game.
I was rooting for Saskatchewan - there are a lot of Rider fans in the Ottawa area. It would have made for more excitement next weekend.
Next up - Argos and Als - the makings for another good game the way these teams have been playing. Nice to see that over 50 thousand fans were at these games.
UPDATE: The Argos win wasn't nearly as exciting - without Calvillo the Alouettes had very little going for them in the 4th quarter. It was nice to see the expression on Matthew's face - one of the easier people to hate in the CFL - compared to Pinball Clemons - one of the easiest people to like.
So, its the Lions vs Argos on Sunday. Hmmm, I guess we'll be able to chant 'Leafs Suck' since Toronto's in the game!
