While B.C.'s mountain lions have four legs, the B.C. Lions tried getting about on four wheels earlier this week, taking on local wheelchair basketball players.

In a video tweeted from the team's Twitter account, a group of football players are zipping around the Tournament Capital Centre gym, trying their hand at the popular wheelchair sport.

The locals and football players are split on both teams, the minute-long clip shows a pretty even matchup. Unfortunately, no one is able to sink a basket. A second video from Lions' fullback Rolly Lumbala captures a bit more of the action.

The Lions made some viral headlines earlier this week when a video of players taking part in an aquafit class was tweeted out.
