For hometown Lions fans the only sparkle was the new artificial turf covering Empire Stadium. It was the first exhibition game of the 1970 season and the first time an artificial gridiron had been used in Canada. Eskimos scored the first time they got their hands on the ball, a single off Dave Cutler's short field goal attempt that rolled into the end zone, and never appeared in danger of falling behind. They led 8-0 at the end of the first quarter, 25 6 at the half and 28-6 after three quarters of play.

And each time B.C. got the ball Paul Brothers, Carroll Wil- liams and Vidal Carlin, who shared quarterbacking duties for Lions, found defensive end Ron Forwick breathing down their hecks. Forwick's sus- tained pass rush was a feature of the game with veterans Greg Pipes and Dave Gasser backing him up. Nettles was the scoring star of the game, crossing the B.C. Lion's goal line for three touch- downs in the first half, once on a 28 yard pass and run play from quarterback Trull aiid the other two on passes of 19-and 38-yards from Colehour. Place- ment kicker Davs Cutler, a graduate of Simon Eraser Uni- versity in nearby Burnaby, added 13 points on three field goals, three converts and a single. He missed converting Eskimos fourth and last touch- down, a one yard plunge by Leroy Sledge that came on the first play of the final quarter. A. D. Whitfield, a hard-driv- ing 205 pound halfback picked up from Washington Redskins hi the off season, scored two touchdowns for B.C. while John Helms got the other on a pass from Carroll Williams, former- ly of Montreal Alouettes.
