Lions Win A Thriller!

BC-Lions3DESIBUZZbc (1)-RedIt was a great season opener for the BC Lions even though the fans were not out in full but Chris Rainey brought a punt back 72 yards for a touchdown and ran in another score as the B.C. Lions defeated the Calgary Stampeders in a thriller that ended 20-18 in Coach Wally Buono's return to the sidelines Saturday to close out Week 1 of the CFL season. The Stampeders had the Lions on the hook but an exciting end with a great run by Rainey and the Lions D stepped up big time for the big win.
