#1 second foul with 3:20 left in the first von lebaobei123 02.04.2019 03:39

VANCOUVER -- It wasnt long ago that the B.C. Lions ground attack was in tatters. Running back Andrew Harris registered an abysmal 10 yards on six carriers in a 31-17 home loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders back on Oct. 4 and followed that up a week later by rushing nine times for 31 yards in a 40-26 road defeat at the hands of the Calgary Stampeders. What a difference a month makes. General manager Wally Buono brought in former Lions running back/kick returner Stefan Logan to give his teams ground game a shot in the arm after the Calgary loss. Following some initial hiccups, B.C. hasnt looked back. Coming off two straight wins, that re-energized running game featuring both Harris and Logan could play a big part in Sundays CFL West Division semifinal when the Lions visit chilly Regina to take on the Roughriders. "The 1-2 punch between me and Stefan has been great," said Harris. "We definitely feed off each other and when you have that competition with someone else taking reps and getting in there and you see them doing well, it definitely gets you going to make some plays." Harris, who finished third in the CFL this season with 998 yards on the ground, rushed for 102 yards against Calgary in last weeks regular-season finale. It marked his first 100-yard rushing game since late July and came on the heels of Logans 121-yard effort against the Edmonton Eskimos on Oct. 25. "The biggest thing is were two different styles of running backs. It definitely frees up some space for him and it definitely frees up space for me," said Harris, who rushed for 76 yards in the Edmonton game. "When you have two different styles of runners ... its going to be tough for teams to game plan against that." The five-foot-11, 213-pound Harris is a more straight ahead back, while the five-foot-six, 180-pound Logan is more shifty. Logan, who played with the Lions in 2008 before spending four seasons in the NFL, said the fact that B.C. has rushed for over 200 yards in each of the last two weeks has lifted a burden off both the backs and an offensive line that was taking a lot of heat for the lack of production. "Being a part of it right now, were having a great time," said Logan. "Were in the meeting rooms and now its a little more chill and laid back and having fun instead of all uptight and worrying about how were going to look this game. Its going well and we want to keep it going." Having two featured running backs can sometimes cause problems for teams with both players wanting more touches, but Logan said a key for the Lions has been maturity. "When youre in the game and your name is called and your number is called, you want to make plays and thats what its all about," he said. "I want to make plays any way I can. "Its always a battle with each and every position, but you cant let that get to you and lose focus on whats going on right now. Right now were in the playoffs to play Saskatchewan and right now is not a time to be selfish." Prior to his own resurgence, Harris was clearly frustrated but bit his tongue when repeatedly asked about the struggling ground game as B.C. went 11 straight contests without a 100-yard rusher. "Theres no doubt that certainly theres been adversities, ups and downs and those types of things, but thats the course of an 18-game season," said Lions head coach Mike Benevides. "All the challenges that weve all faced are going to make us stronger and better for when it really counts." The Lions and Roughriders finished the regular season with identical 11-7 records, but Saskatchewan won two of the three head-to-head matchups to earn the second seed in the West Division. Benevides has yet to decide on his starting quarterback for Sunday, but either Travis Lulay -- who is returning from an injury to his throwing shoulder -- or veteran backup Buck Pierce will benefit if the Harris-Logan combination continues to click with temperatures expected to dip to as low as -10 C in Regina. "Me and him -- the two-headed monster," said Logan. "I like the name and I want to keep it going." Wholesale NHL Jerseys China .J. Hardy finally got in on the fun Saturday, against a likely opponent.
