Passaglia's son wins all-star game with kick

Simon Fraser Clan kicker and receiver Chris Passaglia was the hero in Quebec City on Saturday, kicking a 42-year field goal in overtime to give the West all-stars a 22-19 win in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport East-West Bowl. The win was the fifth in a row for the West, which has swept the annual all-star game since its inception in 2003. Passaglia, whose 12-yard field goal with time running down in the fourth quarter sent the game to overtime, is the son of legendary B.C. Lions kicker Lui Passaglia.
