EDMONTON - It's no big shocker that the B.C. Lions lost track of their sacks.

They pounded Edmonton's quarterbacks to the turf so often it was easy to lose count.

"We had eight sacks, come on," said defensive tackle Aaron Hunt, who had three of them. "Wow. Eight sacks? I didn't even know that. Shoot ... um ... I don't even know what to say. We got after them, right?

"We did what we had to do this game We knew we had to put pressure on Ricky Ray and that's what we did. It really lets me know how good we really were out there."

The B.C. defensive line exploited newcomers Devin Taylor and Chris Patrick, though that wasn't really the game plan coming in.

"We didn't change the game plan because we didn't know who was going to be where," said Hunt. "But baptism by fire, I guess. (Taylor) was new out there and it didn't work out that well for him, pretty much."

B.C. coach Wally Buono says the total was a little exaggerated by the situation.

"The game gets a little out of hand and all of a sudden the running game is no longer a factor," he said. "It happened last week to us. It's football in the professional world; when that team knows you're going to pass, they're going to get after it, it's going to be tough on the offensive line."
