Quarterback Travis Lulay passed for three touchdowns in just over a half of playing time as the B.C. Lions concluded the CFL pre-season schedule with a 24-16 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos on Thursday night.
The Lions went 2-0 in exhibition action this season while the Eskimos were 0-2.
It didn't take the Lions long to get on the scoreboard, marching down field on their first possession and finished off by a 15-yard touchdown pass from Lulay to Geroy Simon.
Edmonton responded with a Burke Dales punt single to make for a 7-1 game after the opening quarter.
Steven Jyles, expected to be Edmonton's starting quarterback this season, only played the opening 20 minutes and was unable to get his team into scoring position.
Veteran Kerry Joseph came in to helm the Eskimos and got the team in field goal range but Derek Schiavone's kick was blocked for another single. Paul McCallum came back with a punt single for the Lions. (The Canadian Press)
