Bombers Maul Lions 50-14, Move Into Tie for First in CFL’s West

For anybody questioning if the Bombers reign of dominance in the CFL was coming to an end, the Blue and Gold had an emphatic message for the doubters Thursday night.

The Bombers blitzed the B.C. Lions 50-14 in front of 30,874 fans at IG Field.

The game was a complete reversal from the June 23 meeting between the two teams when the Lions won 30-6 and sacked Bombers quarterback Zach Collaros seven times.

This time, Collaros threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns and was not sacked at all.

“I think it felt good cause we executed our game plan,” said Collaros. “Anytime you can do that, stay on the football field, create explosive plays, all those things, it’s fun. Obviously, we got to do a better job of finishing the game, turning the ball over there late twice. It’s not our standard.

“It was a pretty clean game other than those two plays and we’re happy with it for sure.”

“That was fun man,” said running back Brady Oliveira. “From the start to the finish a total team effort. We started fast. We played an entire 60 minutes. Offensive line did a great job tonight from start to finish.

“It’s hard to win in this league and against a good opponent especially, we put it on them and it feels good.”

The Bombers offence put up 50 points on a Lions defence that had two shutouts and only allowed 94 points in all of their first seven games combined.
