Lions suffer 6th straight loss as Tiger-Cats claw out win
Despite taking 7 sacks B.C.'s Mike Riley reaches career milestone 30,062 passing yards
A touchdown by David Watford powered the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to a 13-10 win over the B.C. Lions on Saturday.
The Lions (1-9) were plagued by the same issues that have dogged the team all season, including a weak offensive line that allowed quarterback Mike Reilly to be sacked seven times by the Ticats (8-2).
B.C. has now lost six games in a row for the first time since 2010.
Reilly still managed to throw for 286 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. He also reached a new milestone, hitting 30,062 passing yards in his CFL career.
