HAMILTON - Jonathon Jennings threw his first touchdown pass of the season to Emmanuel Arceneaux and running back Shaq Murray-Lawrence ran in another as the B.C. Lions beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 28-3 in front of a sold-out Canada Day crowd of 24,123 at Tim Hortons Field on Friday.

B.C. improved to 2-0 and Hamilton fell to 1-1.

The Tiger-Cats scored their fewest points at home since a 20-2 loss against Toronto on Aug. 12, 2006.

Lions kicker Richie Leone made three of his five field-goal attempts, hitting from 44, 31 and 21 yards while missing shots from 36 and 35 yards out on a trademark blustery day in Hamilton.

Ticats kicker Brett Maher missed all three field-goal attempts, from 36, 48 and 42 yards.

Ryan Phillips and Loucheiz Purifoy each had an interception off Ticat pivot Jeremiah Masoli and Hamilton defensive end John Chick recovered two fumbles. The B.C. defence sacked Masoli four times while Hamilton got to Jennings once.
