Lulay, Mitchell, Forzani and Milo named CFL's players of the week

TORONTO - Quarterback Travis Lulay, who led the B.C. Lions to an important win over the Edmonton Eskimos, was named the CFL's offensive player of the week Tuesday.

Lulay earned the honour for the second time this season after throwing for 322 yards and three touchdowns in the 29-20 victory. That left the Lions tied with Edmonton and the Calgary Stampeders atop the West Division with identical 10-7 records heading into the final week of the regular season.

Teammate Khalif Mitchell was named the top defensive player for the second time this season. The defensive lineman had two sacks and two tackles against Edmonton.

Calgary receiver Johnny Forzani earned top Canadian honours. He had six catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns in the Stampeders' 32-27 victory over the Montreal Alouettes.

Saskatchewan kicker/punter Christopher Milo was named the top special-teams player. He had three field goals in the Roughriders' 19-3 win over Hamilton and also registered a CFL record-tying 108-yard punt.
