BC Lions clinch playoff berth

Dec 20 2017, 2:17 am

The BC Lions are going back to the playoffs for the 19th year in a row. The Alouettes lost 40-22 to Edmonton today, dropping to 6-11 on the season, meaning they won’t be able to pass the Lions as an East crossover team.

At 7-10, B.C. hasn’t had a banner year to say the least. In recent weeks however, the Lions have given some reason for optimism. B.C. has won two in a row and three of their last five games. They lost to a powerhouse Edmonton team three weeks ago, but pushed the Eskimos to overtime.

B.C. has started to find their groove offensively ever since rookie quarterback Jonathan Jennings took over seven games ago. Jennings is 3-3 as a starter.

The Lions have one more regular season game to play on Saturday, against the same team they’ll meet in the playoffs: the Calgary Stampeders. They will travel to Calgary for the West Division Semifinal on Sunday, November 15.
