    CFL: CGY 7, BC 26
    With top spot in the West already locked up, the Stamps lost the game and receiver Marquay McDaniel and defensive lineman Micah Johnson to injury.

    The Stampeders wrapped up their regular season with a 26-7 defeat at the hands of the Lions at BC Place on Friday night. The loss put an end to Calgary's five-game winning steak and was their final contest before hosting the Western final on November 17.
    "We lost the football game, plus we also lost some players which is always difficult," says Stamps head coach and GM John Hufnagel. "We’ll reconvene, get on the practice field, try to become a better football team, learn from this game tonight. We need to play better football."

    Calgary Stampeders' running back Jon Cornish can't break record
    It’s not hard to figure out what Jon Cornish will be shooting for next season.
    With the Calgary Stampeders star tailback chasing down Willie Burden’s franchise rushing record, only a dose of sanity and a meaningless regular-season finale could stop the 28-year-old.
    Four carries, 14 yards, and Cornish’s night was done, leaving him 83 yards shy of the 38-year-old mark.

    Calgary Stampeders fall 26-7 to B.C. Lions
    It’s hard to imagine a worse night for the Calgary Stampeders.
    They missed a chance to hit the 15-win mark for the first time in 18 years Friday night, losing a meaningless CFL regular-season finale to the B.C. Lions by a 26-7 margin on the West Coast, but the final score will be just a footnote.
    Needing 97 yards to equal Willie Burden’s 38-year-old franchise mark of 1,896 rushing yards, Jon Cornish carried just four times for 14 yards, before ditching the helmet and becoming a spectator.

    Stamps lose starters in finale defeat
    The ultimate objective for any playoff-bound team forced to contest a meaningless game centres around escaping the exercise without serious injury.
    The Calgary Stampeders failed to achieve that goal Friday night in a 26-7 loss to the B.C. Lions.
    “It’s hard,” murmured linebacker Juwan Simpson as the Stampeders packed up for the charter flight home to Calgary. “Any time you see a teammate go down, it’s a shock to you.

    On a high: Lions end regular season with win over Stamps
    Travis Lulay looked solid in his return to the BC lineup, completing three of his four passes for 54 yards and a rushing touchdown, as the Lions downed the Calgary Stampeders 26-7 on Friday night in Vancouver.
    With tonight's result, the Lions evened the season series between the two clubs, with each team winning two games.
    Both the Lions and Stampeders played all three of their quarterbacks, with Calgary's Drew Tate getting the most action. He completed seven of his 14 passes for 65 yards.

    The B.C. Lions have put some concerns about their quarterbacking situation to rest, at least for a little while, as the CFL playoffs loom.
    And their running game is looking pretty good, too.
    Nominal No. 1 signal-caller Travis Lulay scored a touchdown and completed three-of-four passes in limited duty upon his return from a shoulder injury as the Lions beat the Calgary Stampeders 26-7 in the final game of the regular season for both teams Friday night.
