Key replay challenge call goes against Riders

Chris Jones used the Riders only challenge in the first quarter of the East Final and it didn’t go as planned.

Kevin Glenn threw an interception to Terrance Plummer who took it back 39 yards for a touchdown with under five minutes and 30 seconds left in the opening frame. After Glenn had let the ball go, Victor Butler’s left arm made contact with Saskatchewan’s quarterback’s head and neck area. There was no penalty flag on the play.

Jones challenged the ruling, but the replay officials decided there was no roughing the passer infraction.

That kept the pick-six on the board.
