Fresh in the minds of the BC Lions and their fan base was their 50-14 loss against the Bombers August 3rd which hey are looking to amend.

The home match would be extra special for Lions fans  as the organization would pay a special tribute to fan favorite Wally Buono at half time who is a legend to everyone in the game.

Prior to that recognition was spent time showing previous BC| Lions history which all began in 1954 that continues to this day.

The half time was all about the induction of Wally Buono and Waterboys founders Dennis Skulsky, Moray Keith, Tom Malone and Jamie Pitblado to our Wall of Fame.

The history of the Lions is one that continues to grow mainly due to the solid support of their fan base that continues even through their days that have been somewhat underachieved.

Throughout the game there were various clips voiced by Matt Baker letting everyone know of the extended history of the team going back decades.

This game was all about the Lions who literally hammered the Stampeders by a whopping 37-9 margin that saw Adams Jr. throw for 322 yards including four TD’s, three that came in the first quarter and one interception.

This game alone put all the bandwagon jumpers hopefully back on the train of success that wideout Keon Hatcher mentioned in the post game “I think we made a statement” which no doubt they did.

If you are a Stampeders fan you have to be wondering what went wrong from the opening drive cause the attending media in the press box were wondering what the turnaround was cause by.

You might say that the Leo’s were a hungry bunch knowing that this game meant something for the organization considering how the new ownership is doing his part to put a championship team on the field.

Adams main “go to” receiver was Hatcher who set a new career high throw for both receptions with nine on the first and 170 on the second including a seven-yard TD.

This game saw the Leo’s (7-2) march down field for 343 yds while the Stamp’s (3-6) had 204 that saw Stamps QB Jake Maier reach the 100 yd mark until five minutes left in the third quarter.

Regardless he finished with 131 yds going 17-of-31.

This was only the fourth time in nine starts for Calgary that he failed to get past 165 yards, two of which came against the Leo’s.

Say what you will this was clearly a statement for the Leos to put the massive loss to Winnipeg far behind them, which was ever-so needed.

Following the game Campbell mentioned “We had a good practice week and I know our guy’s were itching to get back our there again.”

Numbers count  and for the fans they were able to watch Sean Whyte manage his 20th straight FG who leads the league with a 96.2 conversation having him hit 25 of 26 this season.

There were 11 penalties against Calgary for 130 penalty yards  while BC had only six for 72 yds along with only one sack for first-year player Amir Siddiqi while the Stamp’s had three.
