EDMONTON -- The B.C. Lions aren't going to get too wrapped up on how they won, only that they did.
Paul McCallum booted a 46-yard field goal with one minute remaining as the league-leading Lions won their third game in a row, getting past the Edmonton Eskimos 19-18 on Saturday.
Edmonton had taken an 18-16 lead with three minutes left when kicker Grant Shaw nailed a 40-yard field goal after a clutch 47-yard catch by Cary Koch.
But the Lions marched right back into the lead when McCallum was able to make up for a couple of earlier field goal misses in the second half and boot in the game-winning field goal to make it 19-18.
The Eskimos then turned over the ball on downs at their own 42, allowing the Lions to run out the clock.
"I wouldn't have had to make that last one if I had made the other two," said McCallum, who was four for six kicking three-pointers on the night. "I struggled a bit to find my rhythm. Maybe I was over-thinking things. I just need to go out there and kick the ball and not worry about it. I'm just glad my earlier misses didn't end up costing the team.
