What Did You Miss Friday?

--William Powell's 2 yard touchdown run with 49 seconds to play gave Ottawa a 29-25 win over BC in CFL action Friday night  Trevor Harris moved the REDBLACKS down the field 80 yards for the winning score after BC had gone ahead 25-22 on a chip shot field goal with 2 minutes to play. Ottawa is 3-2 while BC is 2-3

--Nik Lewis is retiring as a member of the Calgary Stampeders. The C-F-L's career leader in receptions signed a one-day contract with Calgary before announcing his retirement. Lewis holds the Stampeders record with 165 consecutive games played, was a three-time CFL all-star and won two Grey Cups.

--Terrell Owens was released from the Edmonton Eskimos' negotiation list, leaving the 44-year-old former N-F-L-er free to sign with any other Canadian Football League team. The Edmonton-based agent handling Owens' C-F-L negotiations said the Eskimos' decision won't dampen the receiver's enthusiasm about resuming his football career in Canada.

--The number 1 and 2 golfer in the world are getting the weekend off.  Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas failed to make the cut at the Open Championship.  Zach Johnson and Kevin Kisner are tied for the lead after 36 holes as each are 6 under. 

--Troy Stecher signed a two-year, $4.65 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks on Friday. It has average annual value of $2.325 million. The 24-year-old defenseman, who had 11 points (one goal, 10 assists) in 68 games with the Canucks last season, avoided an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 29.
