Tiger-Cats road woes continue

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML | Hamilton News

Justin Medlock and Paul McCallum both went five for five but the B.C. Lions offence found the endzone once more than the Cats did to give the home team a 36-29 victory.

B.C. would dominate the opening quarter jumping out to a 17-3 lead before the end of the first 15 minutes.

Paul McCallum would hit from 26 yards and Kevin Glenn would strike for a 10 yard pass to Emmanuel Arceneaux and add one of his own on the ground.

Medlock notched the only points for Hamilton from 14 yards out.

The second quarter was an entirely different story with Hamilton finding 16 unanswered points.

For the second game in a row the Tabbies would find offence on a punt return, this week Brandon Banks would take a punt back 97 yards for Hamilton’s only major of the game.

Justin Medlock hit from 31, 32 and 38 yards to give Hamilton a 19-17 lead at halftime.

But coming out of the half a McCallum 47 yard field goal would give the Lions back a lead that they would not relinquish.

Hamilton would continue to keep it close after Andrew Harris found the endzone on a four yard scamper to increase the lead to eight, Dan LeFevour punched a TD of his own in from one yard out.

Paul McCallum would hit another field goal, this from 32 yards but Justin Medlock answered right back from 40.

But one point was as close as the Cats would get as 20 and 42 yard field goals from McCallum sealed the victory for the Lions.

Hamilton will be back in action next Saturday when they host the Calgary Stampeders.

Kickoff is at 3pm, pregame show begins on AM 900 CHML at 2pm.

  1. This will be very short but very hard hitting.
    1. the Cats are at best a third place team this year. The decision to go with a unproven QB over an experienced one is coming back to haunt Austin BIG TIME!

    2. The Bias against this team by the Refs is becoming a joke. We lose three people to illegal hits and no infractions then all the interference calls this game and past guess what no calls.
    Bush league officiating and I thank the good Lord I did not buy seasons tickets this year.

    Coach you need a MAKEOVER Quick or you are Toast! Looking forward to NFL soon.
