Game Notes

Game Summary

For the football crazy fans of Taylor Field, this game marked the beginning of what many hope to be as the first game on the road to the Grey Cup, which is to be played there on November 19. However, the Hamilton Tiger‐Cats were not about to steer a clear path. The Tabbies, who underwent several personnel changes in the off-season, showed why they might surprise in the North Division as they handed the hometown ’Riders a convincing 37-16 loss. Hamilton K Paul Osbaldiston opened the scoring with 2 consecutive FG from 13 and 48 yards out giving them a 6-0 lead after one. Osbaldiston was at it again as he connected on a 12 yard chip shot 2:43 into the second quarter. Sask. QB Tom Burgess then hooked up with WR Elbert Turner for a 9 yard TD. The Dave Ridgway convert narrowed the gap to just 2. Less than a minute later however, the Tabbies struck again as newcomer QB Anthony Calvillo found WR Earl Winfield all alone for a 17 yard TD pass. Osbaldiston added the convert with 1:19 remaining in the second quarter. Ridgway gave the ’Riders some momentum heading into the locker room by kicking a 20 yard FG with no time remaining on the clock making the score at the end of one half, Hamilton 16, Saskatchewan 10. Ridgway brought the Green ’Riders even with 2 consecutive FGs, with the first being a 12 yarder at 2:43 and the second was a 41 yard boot with 1:08 left in the third period. The tie was short lived however as RB Kalin Hall took a Cavillo swing pass and went 73 yards for the major. The Osbaldiston convert made it 23‐16 after 3 quarters. Hall then put the game out of reach for all intents and purposes, plunging in from 1 yard out. Osbaldiston added the convert at 5:17. The Tabbies rounded out the scoring as FB Lee Knight scored on a 32 yard run at 13:09. The Osbaldiston convert made the final 37-16.
