In last Sunday’s game, the Saskatchewan Roughriders (as usual) were struggling, but as is also usual, they kept it alive to the last couple of minutes, when anything can happen.
With just under a minute to go, they were trailing B.C., 24 to 18. Then at 0:54 left in the fourth, they scored a touchdown. Score now 25-24, Riders.
Riders kick-off to B.C.
On first down, B.C. quarterback throws to a B.C. player, who can’t bring in it; he hits the ball with his hand in trying; ball shoots up and then down into the waiting hands of Eddie Davis of the Riders, who runs it in 34 yards for a touchdown at 0:37 - just 17 seconds after the Riders’ previous touchdown.
Riders win, 32-24!
So, 17 seconds by the clock between touchdowns - anywhere close to the record?
