VANCOUVER -- Travis Lulay threw for a touchdown and ran for another as the B.C. Lions beat the Montreal Alouettes 36-14 in CFL action Sunday.
B.C. improved to 7-4 while avenging a last-second loss in Montreal on Aug. 22. The Alouettes, who were held scoreless in the first half and trailed throughout, fell to 4-7. Montreal suffered its 13th loss in its last 14 visits to Vancouver.
Shawn Gore caught Lulay's touchdown pass while Andrew Harris scored on a one-yard run. Marco Iannuzzi caught a TD pass from B.C. backup quarterback Thomas DeMarco late in the game. It was the first scoring strike of DeMarco's two-year CFL career.
B.C.'s other points came on a conceded safety and Paul McCallum's two field goals and four converts.
Montreal's points came on touchdown receptions by S.J. Green and Brandon London. Both TD passes were thrown by Josh Neiswander, the third Alouettes quarterback used in the game.
