GUELPH, ONT. - If Travis Lulay didn't feel like a pinata after that one, he should have.

Or a punching bag.

The B.C. Lions quarterback took so many direct hits from so many different Hamilton Tiger-Cats defenders it was a near miracle he was even upright by game's end.

In a game in which Henry Burris threw for 375 yards and four touchdowns it was the constant defensive pressure and repetitive shots on Lulay that stood out.

All three Hamilton linebackers took turns teeing off on Lulay and when they weren’t, it was defensive ends Eric Norwood and Sam Scott forcing the B.C. linemen into that walk of shame where they shuffle back and pull their bruised and beaten quarterback up to this feet.

To Lulay’s credit he got up after every single hit and when the Ticats got a little sloppy with the football in the fourth quarter, he actually made a game of it.
