VANCOUVER - There have been two constants for Justin Goltz during the first two starts of his CFL career.
Strong showings early, followed by wildly inaccurate finishes.
Growing pains are to be expected when a young quarterback takes over the top job and to his credit, Goltz has displayed the proper amount of disappointment while sprinkling in a little positive reinforcement for the process itself during his post-game assessments.
The latest loss came Monday night, as the Blue Bombers kept it close but ultimately fell 27-20 to the B.C. Lions to fall to 1-5 as they enter the bye week.
Goltz started 7-of-9 through the air but managed only six more completions in the contest, finishing 13-of-28 for 112 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception.
That included just 71 yards of net offence -- and 34 yards passing -- during the second half.
