GAME DAY | TACKLE HUNGER & JENNINGS BOBBLEHEAD NIGHT
BC LIONS vs CALGARY STAMPEDERS
FRIDAY | AUG 18 | 7:30PM
The BC Lions (5-3) return to BC Place this Friday at 7:30 pm to host the Calgary Stampeders (5-1-1) in a critical West Division showdown presented by Purolator Tackle Hunger.
For the final time in 2017, Kids 12 and under can see the Leos in action for just $5.
The Lions look to get back in the win column against a very talented Calgary team which is in second spot in the ultra-competitive West Division. While sitting at 5-3 on the year, the Leos need to put together key wins against division rivals as the season nears the midway point if they want to have a shot at a home playoff game in November.
Quarterback Jonathon Jennings should have a full complement of playmakers back in the line-up versus the Stamps which means a high-octane offensive attack, but they will need an equally determined effort from the defence against Calgary pivot Bo Levi Mitchell.
It’s a Friday night brawl and it’s a big one as the Lions and Stamps collide under the lights at BC Place.
