Walker's return sparks Tiger-Cats in win over Eskimos

Jan 9, 2008 - 6:06 PM
HAMILTON, Ontario (Ticker) -- Jo Jo Walker returned a punt 71 yards and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats held on for a 21-18 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos in a battle of the league's two worst teams on Saturday.

Nick Setta kicked four field goals for Hamilton (3-15), which outgained Edmonton in total offense, 424-256.

Walker's punt return put the Tiger-Cats up, 21-13, just 3:38 into the third quarter, but they had to sweat it out until the end.

Edmonton (5-12-1) pulled within 21-16 on a 17-yard field goal by rookie Warren Kean with 3:20 left in the fourth. But Hamilton sealed the win with a safety just two minutes later.

The Eskimos took a 13-11 lead into halftime after Kean kicked one of his three field goals.

Stefan LeFors completed 15-of-22 passes for 182 yards with one interception for Edmonton and added an eight-yard touchdown run.
