TICATS 24 LIONS 23

VANCOUVER - Sergio Castillo hit his third field goal of the night from 50 yards out with 10 seconds left in the fourth quarter as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated the B.C. Lions 24-23 on Friday.

Jeremiah Masoli threw touchdowns to Brandon Banks and Luke Tasker for Hamilton (3-9).

Alex Green rushed 13 times for 140 yards in his CFL debut for the Tiger-Cats.

Jonathon Jennings ran in the only touchdown for B.C. (6-7), while Ty Long hit five field goals.

After the Lions went ahead on Long's fifth field goal of the night, the Tiger-Cats got the ball back at their own 26 with 1:48 to play, and drove it all the way to B.C.'s 42 before Castillo hit the winning points.

B.C. entered play last in the CFL's ultra-competitive West Division, and in serious danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 1996, while Hamilton still has life in the soft East.

Wow what was there 8000 fans. This league better wake up cause it's gonna loose sponsors and more fans. That's what happens when u try to become a league that's only visible from June to grey cup.

Quit making situation look worse then it is...yes I understand the game had lower attendance but stating it was 8,000 is such a stupid remark, hope you realize that 8,000 was not even half of what was there...here is the honest attendance that was 18,091. Yes it needs to get better but quit spitting out stupid uninformed comments...Rider fans for ya.

Argos hold their walk through in an abandoned tennis court yesterday in Toronto, plummeting attendance in Montreal Vancouver and Toronto, falling tv numbers... this league is in trouble.

Might have sold 18000 tickets but it looked like watching the Argos home games. More crows than people. Oh and if 18000 in BC Place doesn't look awful then have another ten dollar beer.

This just shows that BC and Montreal are the new trouble spots for the league, in the place out west the owner never puts any money into it.

"The Sk.Football God Mr.Kent Austin" orchestrating a playoff bound team from high above looking down. So all bow down, honor, give good phrase to "The Sk.Football God Mr.Kent Austin" especially those "Bum"kins back in Sk. He's saving Tiger Cats Football and the CFL as he did Saskatchewan Roughriders Football.

Very few Rider fans posting on here are realistic.

Riders set the standard! Realistic enough for you!

Set the standard for whining and crying until the league bends to get what they want...there is the truth. Set the standard for what, 4 championships...last place all around so way to set that high standard you all believe your at.

Did no one but me see the helmet to helmet hit to Brandon Bridge on the final SK series that caused the fumble? Not one comment by Black or Suitor, given all the talk of hits to the head lately...His head snapped back from the impact - not extreme, but I thought we protect the QB? Any hit to the head on the QB is an automatic roughing call...plus, I thought it would have been at least reviewed by the command center, as all turnovers are supposed to be reviewed...Just sayin the reffing wasn't good on either side - how do you miss a contacting the kicker call - did every official look away from Maver? anyways, just sayin...
