Another sellout crowd at Mosaic Stadium were treated to another nail biter by the home team.
The Riders led wire to wire in Saturday night's game against BC but they had to survive a late scare to hold on for a 27-21 win.
Weston Dressler lead the way offensively with a pair of touchdown catches from Darian Durant in the first half as the Green and White built up a 18-1 lead at halftime.
The Riders would extend that lead to 19-7 going into the fourth quarter but BC quarterback Travis Lulay fired a pair of late touchdown strikes to Marco Iannuzzi to make the game 27-to-21.The Lions would then recover an on-side kick but the D would hold to give the Green and White the victory.
With the win the Riders improved to 7-6 while BC fell to 9-4. Saskatchewan's next game is at Toronto on Thanksgiving Day Monday afternoon.
GAME NOTES: Rider DB Milt Collins and RB/REC Jock Saunders left the game with injuries. BC finished the game without receivers Arland Bruce III and Geroy Simon who were also shaken up.
