1986
Defending their championship proved even harder than winning it the year before, as the Lions battled the Eskimos, Bombers, the injury bug and the newly extended 18 game regular season. The Lions reached the halfway mark at 7-2 losing at Edmonton and at home to Calgary, then ran their record to 9-2 before hitting a four game losing streak, started by back to back losses to Edmonton. In danger of finishing fourth in the tough West, the club rebounded to win back to back games from Winnipeg to end the season 12-6 and finish second. Under the new playoff format, the Lions met the Bombers for a third straight week, winning the semi-final and then travelling to Edmonton for their first Western Final game on the road in four years. Playing without Konar and Jackson, the Lions lost their fourth game of the year to the Eskimos, ending their hopes of defending their title in front of a home crowd at B.C.Place. Off the field, the big news and shocker of the year was the departure of GM Bob Ackles to the Dallas Cowboys, ending his 33 year association with the Club. He left in July, and was replaced by former Montreal GM Joe Galat in August.

This Western Final loss is one of my furthest back memories of the Lions as a kid. While I do have memories further back, none stand out as much as when they lost 41-5 to Edmonton. I was in tears crying frantically. I couldn't handle the look on Dewalt's face as he broke from the huddle. He looked like he had no answer and they were hopeless. I guess this was when I knew I was going to be a fan forever. Balling my eyes out in my room after the game, and my parents who were out during the game, had to cheer me upwhen they got home. I'll never forget that score.

Yeah, as sad as it was for the 1986 WDF, IMHO the 1987 WDF was even more heartbreaking. At least in the 1986, it was already accepted among most Lions that BC already lost all three regular seasons to settle for second place. And they had a hard task of trying to win in difficult Commonwealth Stadium. The 1986 was sad, but somewhat expected too. While in the 1987, the Lions regained the form two win both regular seasons to finish the top of the west. Unlike 1986, the 1987 WDF with their home crowd were expected to win and return back to the Grey Cup game.

Interviews by two men, one you all love and one you all despise. Bob Ackles explains his departure to the Dallas Cowboys, and Joe Galat explains taking over his role.

Defending their 1985 GC championship, the Lions managed to handle the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, starting with a win in the season opener when Jan Carinci immediately made an impact to the Lions by recovering a fumble for a TD. But the Lions always had trouble with the Eskimos in that season and lost their lead in the west division. The home game on September 19, 1986 might be the last sold-out regular season home game for the Lions and the audience was not pleased with the horrific 32-3 loss. In the play in which James Bell was paralyzed after colliding with Jan Carinci and a teammate, I kept wondering who that teammate was. Now I know it was all-star safety Laurent DesLauriers.

In the last time the Lions hosted a division semi-final in 1986, it was a duel with Winnipeg. After taking a 21-0 lead after 3 quarters, the Lions had to make a goal-line stand. Unfortunately reality set in a week later as the Lions were demolished 41-5 in the WDF.

On that Saturday afternoon playoff game, the attendance was rather pitiful at 40,381.

Despite the fact that the Lions were defending their championship and fact that the 1986 season had the highest average attendance in Lions' franchise history at 46,526 and the highest single regular season game at 59,478 on September 19, 1986 (32-3 loss to Edmonton), this season is one of the more less-remembered ones. :juggle:

Montreal 20 at BC 27


BC 36 at Hamilton 21


Saskatchewan 24 at BC 39


BC 25 at Ottawa 19


Ottawa 10 at BC 40


BC 34 at Toronto 24

After this win, the Lions suffered a four game loss that dropped the Lions from first in the west to third.

Winnipeg 24 at BC 36

Two final regular season wins over Winnipeg salvaged second place for the Lions.

WDSF - Winnipeg 14 at BC 21 :thup:

The last time the Lions hosted the West Division Semi-Final. Despite the fact that it had a very exciting finish with the Lions hold the Blue Bombers to a goal line stance, this game is one of the less memorable ones.

WDF - BC 5 at Edmonton 41

The Lions had so many problems against the Eskimos that season, and unfortunately the WDF was no exception. :dizzy: :tp:

1986 BC Lions season opener in its entirety: 28-17 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. You will notice that Mervyn Fernandez aside from his wide receiver position is also playing the punter as well :good: while Paul Osbaldiston is doing the field goal duties for the Lions as Lui Passaglia suffered a pre-season injury. Fernandez did an adequate job as the punter while Osbaldiston would actually join the Blue Bombers later on that season.

Excellent trick play by the Lions in the third video when Dewalt handed off a pass to Mervyn Fernandez in the own end zone who then threw a long pass to Ned Armour for a large gain. The Lions quickly added a TD after that. Wow, Mervyn Fernandez was very versatile in that game in that not only did he play receiver and punter, he also played the quarterback passer as well! :rockin:

Thanks for posting these! Really have enjoyed watching. Looking at this team, maybe it's just because this was the first team I knew, but the roster looks so solid everywhere. And I just love the passing attack from Roy. That guy had such an awesome arm. Sure he threw to Merv a lot, but why wouldn't he? Very exciting offence. We could use some of that these days
