CALGARY — The B.C. Lions came from behind to beat the Calgary Stampeders 25-24 on Friday.

Trailing 21-13 after three quarters, Andrew Harris scored on a four-yard rush and Ernest Jackson on a 65-yard catch in the fourth.

The Lions improved to 3-3 while the Stampeders dropped to 4-1 with their first loss of the season.

Ron Yell produced a touchdown for the B.C. defence, running back an interception to score in the first quarter. Kicker Paul McCallum was good from 45 and 21 yards in the game.

Kevin Glenn completed 22 of 32 passes for 203 yards and a touchdown in his return to McMahon Stadium.

Glenn started the majority of games for Calgary the past two seasons for a 20-8 record.

He was claimed in the expansion draft by Ottawa and subsequently traded to B.C.

The veteran won his first game as a visiting quarterback at McMahon, however, as he was 0-8 wearing enemy colours in Calgary.

Glenn was intercepted once in the game.

The Stampeders were working their way into position for a winning field goal in the final minute, but an Anthony Parker turned the ball over on a fumble.

Defensive back Keon Raymond ran a 63-yard interception back to score for Calgary. Marquay McDaniel had an 18-yard touchdown catch and backup quarterback Drew Tate capped a scoring drive with a one-yard dive.

Rene Paredes was good on his one 35-yard field-goal attempt.

Bo Levi Mitchell made 21 of 31 pass attempts for 196 yards and a touchdown.

He was intercepted for the first time this season.

The Lions host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats next Friday with the Stampeders at home to the Ottawa Redblacks the following day.
