LCF: Vernon Adams Jr. celebrates his comeback

After missing the last two games, quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. was instrumental in their 37-9 win over the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday in Vancouver.

While their former guard Nathan Rourke dazzled the show with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Lions provided a well-placed football lesson to their Alberta rivals. Rick Campbell’s men didn’t allow any majors to their opponents, who had to settle for three field goals from the eternal Rene Paredes.

For his part, Adams finished with 322 yards and four touchdowns, bringing his total for the season to 13. The feat is good for second in the circuit, behind Zach Kaulos (16).

The former Alouettes quarterback didn’t have a favorite in the game, as four different players caught touchdown passes, including the dynamic Alexander Hollins and Keon Hatcher as well as the colorful Lucky Whitehead.

“We’ve had a good week of training,” said Adams. [Hatcher] He had several games in his game plan this week. There was so little left in reserve that 200 could have given him [verges]. »

Sean Whyte had three field goals in addition to being perfect on touchdown conversions.

Quebec’s Matthew Bates also marked a blocked shot in the pay zone Stamps, resulting in his team being relegated. Dominating defense with the Lions this season, the former Rouge et Or record holder still leads the CFL in sacks.

“It was really bad,” admitted Stamps quarterback Jake Meyer, who eventually completed 17 of 31 passes for 131 yards. We didn’t implement well [le plan de match]. We had a lot of penalties. We didn’t get a drop. We were disorganized the whole game. »
