Paul McCallum’s third field goal of the game, a 19-yarder at 9:34 of the fourth quarter, proved to be the difference.

Chevon Walker and Chris Walker both scored two touchdowns for the Tiger-Cats, who outscored the Lions 15-6 in the final quarter only to fall short.

Hamilton had won four of the past five-regular-season meetings between the teams dating to 2009. Including playoffs, the Southern Ontario squad was 4-2 against B.C. in the same time span.
