THREE STARS

1. Lions QB Jarious Jackson -- Threw touchdown passes to Lyle Green, Jason Clermont and Paris Jackson and was deadly accurate, going 23-of-28 passing for 307 yards.

2. Lions DT Tyrone Williams -- Led the Lions run-stuffing attack and recorded eight tackles.

3. Lions RB Joe Smith -- Ran for 105 yards and a touchdown, the fourth time he has cracked the century mark.

WHY THE STAMPS LOST

They allowed two early touchdowns and then lost starting QB Akili Smith to a groin injury midway through the second quarter. QB Barrick Nealy took over and struggled.

GREAT CATCH

Stamps WR Brett Ralph came back to snag a Barrick Nealy 22-yard pass at the five-yard line, then took a big hit and lost his helmet.

HUGE HIT

Stamps SB Jeremaine Copeland caught Lions LB Javy Glatt with a solid cutback block that put the Calgary product on the turf.

KEY STAT

14 -- Points scored by the Lions on their first two drives.

NOTABLES

Stamps RB Jon Cornish, a New Westminster, B.C. native, returned kickoffs for the first time this season ... Ex-NFL receiver Az-Zahir Hakim, who the Stamps are bringing in to help on returns, made the trip but has yet to pass his physical and officially sign.
