    STAMPS FALL TO LIONS IN PRE-SEASON OPENER
    from Stampeders.com

    One bounce was the difference Friday as the Stampeders suffered a 29-27 loss to the BC Lions in Canadian Football League pre-season play at McMahon Stadium.

    With 1:13 left to play in the contest, Lions kicker Hugh O’Neill booted a 47-yard field goal that bounced in after clanging the crossbar for the winning points.

    The Stamps had taken a 27-26 lead with 3:30 remaining thanks Jonathan Williams’ one-yard touchdown run on the heels of a 38-yard completion from Bo Levi Mitchell to Brandon Kinnie.

    Calgary outgained BC 336-224 in total yards but miscues were the Stamps’ undoing.

    “There were some good individual plays out there,” said Stampeders head coach and general manager Hufnagel. “And there was some sloppy play. We need to correct the things that led us to losing the game, which was too many penalties and turnovers.”

    The Stamps coughed the ball up four times — twice on fumbles, once on an interception and once on downs — and committed 13 penalties.

    Notebook: Lions 29, Stamps 27

    It was sloppy and it was ugly.

    Oh, and the weather was pretty bad, too.

    Following the Stamps 29-27 loss to the B.C. Lions in the pre-season opener Friday night at McMahon Stadium, GM/head coach John Hufnagel wasn’t impressed with his team’s ball security or discipline.

    “There were some nice individual plays out there and there was some sloppy play,” Hufnagel said after navigating the rain-soaked turf to get back into the locker-room. “We need to correct the things that led to us losing the game, which was too many penalties and turnovers.”

    The Stamps fumbled the ball three times, losing two.

    Kevin Glenn, who relieved starter Drew Tate in the second quarter, threw a pick.

    Lions rally late for pre-season win over Calgary
    CFL.ca

    Korey Williams returned a kick 105 yards for a touchdown, while Hugh O'Neill kicked five field goals including the game winner with 1:13 remaing, as the Lions rallied to down the Calgary Stampeders 29-27 in pre-season action at McMahon Stadium.
    The first quarter got off to a rather slow start for both sides on the offensive side of the ball, with punters Rob Maver and O’Neill each getting an opportunity to kick twice after both offences played to two and outs.

    Midway through the first quarter, however, the Stamps offence got things started as Tate orchestrated a drive that ended with Rene Paredes splitting the uprights from 38 yards out for the night’s opening points.

    But the Lions answered back before the first quarter expired, as Thomas DeMarco – who replaced Travis Lulay under centre midway through the first quarter – connected with third-year receiver Nick Moore in the endzone with a 14-yard pass for the game’s first touchdown.

    Lulay finished his appearance with a modest two completions on five attempts for 13 yards.

    Calgary Stampeders fall to B.C. Lions in pre-season opener
    Scott Fisher, Calgarysun.com

    Bo Levi Mitchell made his case to move up the depth chart.

    Officially listed as the Calgary Stampeders third-string quarterback, Mitchell gave his team a shot Friday night against the B.C. Lions at McMahon Stadium.

    The second-year pivot erased a nine-point fourth quarter deficit to give the Stamps a 27-26 lead the pre-season opener for both teams.

    But with Paul McCallum staying in B.C., Lions place kickerHugh O’Neill’s 47-yard field goal hit the crossbar and bounced through to give the visitors the win.

    Trailing 26-20, Mitchell hit Brandon Kinnie for a 38-yard gain to the one-yardline.

    Running back Jonathan Williams took it in on the next play to give the Stamps the lead.

    Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel wanted to see an improvement from his offence — especially his starting unit — from last weekend’s mock game.

    That didn’t happen.

    Coach calls pre-season defeat 'good, bad and ugly'
    Last minute field goal lifts Lions to victory
    Vicki Hall, Calgaryherald.com

    The demeanour of two inhabitants of the Calgary Stampeders locker-room – next-door neighbours in the southwest corner – told the story of a 29-27 exhibition loss to the B.C. Lions.

    In one stall, a disgusted Drew Tate ripped himself for a mediocre (and that’s putting it politely) performance in his first taste of action in the 2013 pre-season.

    “About as bad as it could go,” the starting quarterback said of a night where he completed just two-of-seven passes for a paltry seven yards. “It’s my fifth year in Calgary and I don’t think I’ve ever thrown the ball that bad.”

    Red-faced and frustrated, Tate looked his inquisitors in the eye and offered up no excuses for what will personally go down as stinker of monumental proportions.

    “I’ve got a lot of work to do,” he spat. “I’ve gotta be better. It is what it is. You’ve gotta move on.”

    Kevin Glenn, on the other end, assumed the controls second quarter and looked every bit the guy who led the Stamps to the 2012 Grey Cup in relief of an injured Tate.

    Hufnagel underwhelmed by Tate's performance
    The Canadian Press

    There's no QB controversy in Calgary, but head coach John Hufnagel would like to see his starting QB Drew Tate be a little bit better.

    "Drew had a tough time,'' Hufnagel said. "Kevin came in and looked sharp. Bo, I thought, made plays in the second half under strenuous conditions.''

    Tate connected on 2-of-7 passes for seven yards in the first quarter.

    Backup Kevin Glenn was 7-for-10 for 125 yards, a pair of touchdown passes and one interception in the second quarter. Third-stringer Bo Levi Mitchell was 9-for-14 and 101 yards. Ryan Perrilloux had one throw for three yards.

    The CFL tuneup was both a preview of the regular-season opener for both clubs and a rematch of the 2012 West Division final, which the Stampeders won to earn a berth in the Grey Cup.

    B.C.'s Korey Williams scored on a 105-yard kickoff return and Nick Moore caught a touchdown pass from Thomas DeMarco for the visitors.

    Lions No. 1 quarterback Travis Lulay played a fraction of the first quarter before giving way to backups DeMarco, Chris Hart and Joey Elliott. Lulay completed 2-of-5 passes for 13 yards.

    DeMarco was 6-for-12 for 68 yards and a touchdown, Hart was 1-for-6 for two yards and Elliott was 3-for-4 for 25 yards.

    Meanwhile, Hugh O'Neill passed a big test in his latest audition with the B.C. Lions.

    The 23-year-old booted five field goals, including the game-clinching kick late in the fourth quarter, as B.C. defeated the Calgary Stampeders 29-27 in a soggy CFL pre-season game on Friday.

    O'Neill's winning field goal from 47 yards out with 1:13 left on the clock bounced off the crossbar and over for the victory in a driving rain at McMahon Stadium.
