Game Notes

Game Summary

An old rivalry between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Toronto Argonauts found itself at work again at Ivor Wynne Stadium in the final matchup of the holiday weekend in front of 21,762 fans as the Tiger-Cats downed the Argos 23-21. The first half was all Hamilton as Toronto failed to put any points on the board and Hamilton was able to rack up 11 points, on the strength of a field goal, a touchdown and a single. The field goal was a 12-yarder by K Paul Osbaldiston who was also responsible for the single which followed a Hamilton TD scored by Don McPherson on a 14-yard rush. In the 3rd quarter, Toronto finally put some points up and cut into Hamilton’s lead by scoring a field goal which Lance Chomyc put through the uprights from 32 yards away and Mike Clemons scored a touchdown on a 44-yard punt return. Toronto continued to put points up when QB Reggie Slack took the ball in from 3 yards away which made the score 15-11 for Toronto. Hamilton countered with an Osbaldiston field goal from 21 yards away and then the defence scored with a 29 yard interception return which Bobby Dawson took all the way for the major. Toronto looked to be in control as they punched in the ball from 2 yards away when Slack took it in again with less than 1 minute remaining, however the Argo defence corps couldn’t hold off the Tiger-Cats and Osbaldiston put through a 42-yard field goal with 5 seconds left to make the final 23-21 in Hamilton’s favour. Tiger-Cat defender was a key player in this game, reaching Slack 5 times to tie a CFL record for most sacks in one game with 2 other players.
