‘Nobody feeling sorry for you’: Duke Williams accuses Shawn Lemon of lying about West Semi-Final spitting incident

The West Semi-Final is over, but it appears the beef is not yet done cooking following an incident at the end of the first half in that contest.

Veteran Stampeders defensive end Lemon was ejected from Sunday’s game after delivering a two-handed punch to the face of Saskatchewan Roughriders’ receiver Duke Williams during a scrum and has since accused Williams of provoking the altercation by spitting on him.

Lemon said he felt “disgusted and disrespected” by the incident and the allegations are currently being investigated by the league, but Williams had his own response on Twitter early Tuesday morning.

“Shawn Lemon, you know they have footage my guy. No need to lie, lol. Nobody feeling sorry for you,” the receiver fired back, tagging Lemon directly in the tweet.

The public accusation of lying has not yet received a response from Lemon. The CFL has no update regarding the ongoing investigation into the spitting incident.

No matter the result, Williams had the last laugh as the 25-yard penalty incurred by Lemon’s disqualification proved costly, allowing Saskatchewan to start the second half with a kickoff from Calgary’s 50-yard line. The Riders chose to perform a short kick, which was recovered by defensive end A.C. Leonard for a first down.

Saskatchewan drove 39 yards in just three plays, converting on a six-yard touchdown pass from Cody Fajardo to Kian Schaffer-Baker to take a 17-8 lead early in the third quarter. They would go on to win the game 33-30 in double overtime.
