T-Birds, Rams score seven TDs in one quarter

The crazy part of Regina's 55-28 win over UBC is that the Rams actually did it with defence.

A 49-point second quarter saw UBC's backup quarterback, Mark McVeigh, throw the first three touchdown passes of his CIS career in a span of 5 1/2 minutes, only to have the Rams score four TDs in the final six minutes of the half, three byreceiver Jordan Sisco, who had also never scored a university touchdown. Anyway, it was actually Steve Wilson, the all-Canadian Rams linebacker, who made two game-turning plays. Right after the Rams cut UBC's lead to 21-10, Wilson came up a sack/forced fumble and teammate Stan Van Sichem scooped up the ball and scored.

Van Sichem was pretty much Regina's motto against the team from Vancouver : On UBC's first play after Regina's next drive, a 65-yard scoring march, Wilson picked off McVeigh and returned the ball inside the 16-yard line.

It ended up being a bad night all around for the T-Birds: QB Doug Goldsby threw only one pass before coming out with an injury and fifth-year senior tailback Chris Ciezki's Hec Crighton hopes, faint as they were playing behind a young offensive line, took a major hit: He was held to 12 yards on the night. UBC (2-2) still has Calgary, Manitoba and Saskatchewan left to play, so its Canada West playoff hopes could be dim.

I'm off to a wedding reception today -- at the same time as Queen's-Windsor on The Score, no less, so it's going to be light blogging the rest of the weekend.
