Third-stringer Jackson guides Lions to victory

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:13 PM VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Jarious Jackson scored from one yard out midway through the fourth quarter to guide the B.C. Lions to a 22-12 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Thursday.

Jackson, who has been listed as the third-string quarterback for the Lions for most of the season, capitalized on a 32-yard pass interference penalty and capped off a six-play, 50-yard drive with a one-yard scoring run at the 7:46 mark of the final quarter, giving B.C. its first lead of the contest at 17-12.

The Lions completed the ensuing two-point conversion before adding an insurance field goal with 1:43 remaining. A former standout at Notre Dame, Jackson took over for an injured Buck Pierce, who started the game in place of regular Dave Dickinson after he suffered a concussion in the Lions' 42-12 win over Saskatchewan on Friday.

The Tiger-Cats made a last-ditch effort to tie the game as quarterback Jason Maas completed a four-play, 42-yard drive with a nine-yard TD toss to Jo Jo Walker with 21 seconds left to narrow the deficit to 22-18. However, Maas' two-point attempt to Talman Gardner fell incomplete in the end zone to end the threat.

B.C. (4-0), the defending Grey Cup champion, remains the only undefeated team in the CFL. Hamilton (0-4) is the league's lone winless club.

Jesse Lumsden rushed for 158 yards for the Tiger-Cats, marking the first time an opposing rusher has eclipsed the century mark against the Lions since October 16, 2005.
