Lions vs. Alouettes Week 11 offensive & defensive game balls

Revenge is sweet

After losing part one in Montreal, the B.C. Lions returned home, and returned to dominant form, beating up on the Alouettes 43-10.

In doing so, they hold a one game lead over the Edmonton Eskimos.

Offensive Game Ball

Wide Receiver Nick Moore got his first start of the year in place of Geroy Simon and took advantage of it big time!  The brother of New Orleans Saint Lance Moore finished with six catches for 64 yard and scored an excellent touchdown.

Andrew Harris overtook Montreal running back Brandon Whitaker for third in rushing yards in the CFL with a 67 yard performance, including a one yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Excellent performances by both Harris and Moore, but at the end of the day the offensive game ball goes to the man throwing those two the ball.

Travis Lulay tied his career high with four touchdown passes, and aired it out for 262 yards.  For the second consecutive week he out dueled the CFL’s greatest quarterback, and that is impressive on its own.

Lulay has done a near flawless job of following up the Grey Cup campaign from last season.

Defensive Game Ball

Solomon Elimimian‘s rights go back to the Lions this week if he doesn’t have a NFL home by then.  Linebacker Adam Bighill, who replaced him in the middle, had his worst game of the year.

Maybe, but maybe not; he might already be feeling the heat from the former CFL Most Outstanding Rookie.

Khalif Mitchell was up to it again, in Calvillo’s face all afternoon long and picked up a sack.

The defensive game ball goes to cornerback Anthony Reddick.  Reddick consistently shutdown the Als top receivers with the exception of the opening drive.  He’s been quiet thus far, but if he can continue the strong play into the second half he’ll add to an already top Leo defense.

Special Teams Game Ball

With the exception of a 54 yard return following the Alouettes opening touchdown, Tim Brown and the return game had a disappointing game once again.

If it weren’t for the best offense in the CFL, the Lion return game would be under a lot of scrutiny.

The Special Teams game ball goes to veteran kicker Paul McCallum, for lack of a better option.  The 42 year old Vancouver native went 2/3 including a 43 yarder in the first quarter.

McCallum also punted 5 times for over 200 yards, with a long of 49.

The Leo’s are back at BC Place on Saturday, in a showdown against Ricky Ray and the Argonauts.
