Game Notes

Game Summary

Both of these teams had four wins going into this game, with the Tiger-Cats sporting a two game winning streak. Hamilton opened the scoring on a 1 yard run by RB Derrick McAdoo, with K Osbaldiston adding the point after. Just over five minutes later, Osbaldiston was successful on a 47 yard field goal attempt to give the Tabbies a 10-0 lead. It took San Antonio two and a half minutes and 5 plays to score a touchdown of their own. RB Mike Saunders ran the ball into the end zone after a 6 yard run by RB Troy Mills and three complete passes by QB Dave Archer. K Roman Anderson added the convert to cut the Tiger-Cat lead to 10-7 going into the second quarter. At 3rd and 7 from the San Antonio 54, Osbaldiston punted a 37 yarder, but San Antonio was called for too many men on the field which proved to be costly. Hamilton QB Steve Taylor hooked up with WR Earl Winfield for a 44 yard TD. The convert increased the Hamilton lead to 17-7. An interception by Texans’ CB Jason Wallace at the San Antonio 1-yard line led to a touchdown. After a 4 yard run, Archer’s pass to WR Joe Kralik resulted in a 105 yard TD, once again closing the Ti-Cats lead to 17‐14. Osbaldiston made good on a 49 yard field goal attempt to complete the scoring for the first half of the game. Back-to-back touchdowns, first by Mills of the Texans and then by SB Manny Hazard of the Ti-Cats, were the only scoring in the third quarter. The Texans entered the fourth quarter down by six points (27-21) and came within three on a 35 yard field goal by Anderson. Hazard scored his second touchdown of the night on a 26 yard pass from QB Anthony Calvillo, who entered the game shortly into the fourth quarter. The Texans retaliated with a TD of their own under a minute later, now trailing by only three points once again. But that was it for San Antonio. At 9:10 of the quarter, Osbaldiston’s 49 field goal attempt went wide, giving the Tabbies the single to conclude the scoring for the game. Hamilton continued their winning streak to three games, taking them to 5-3 on the season, while the Texans drop to 4-5 tied with Memphis for third in the South Division.
