Game Notes

Game Summary

Much to the disappointment of the 22,000 fans at Winnipeg Stadium, Hamilton extended their three game winning streak by sneaking past Winnipeg in overtime. The only scoring of the first quarter came from kicker Paul Osbaldiston who blasted two punts into the end zone for single points. Winnipeg got on the score sheet in the second quarter on a 64 yard Bob Cameron punt single. Tiger-Cat wide receiver Larry Thompson, who recorded 275 yards receiving during the night, scored his first of three touchdowns on an 18 yard pass from QB Steve Taylor. Osbaldiston’s convert attempt was good. Blue Bomber kicker Troy Westwood notched two field goals in a row from 27 and 33 yards to bring Winnipeg back into the game. Winnipeg trailed by 2 at half-time. Blaise Bryant took the lead for Winnipeg on a 2 yard TD reception from Shawn Moore. Westwood’s convert gave the Bombers a 4 point lead. Cameron recorded his second single of the game sending a 75 yard punt into the end zone. With Anthony Calvillo in at quarterback, the Ti-Cats tied the game with a 14 yard TD pass to Richard Nurse. Osbaldiston kicked the convert and later scored a single on a 70 yard punt through the end zone to give Hamilton a 2 point lead going into the fourth quarter. Winnipeg’s Bryant scored his second TD of the game on a 5 yard run and Westwood booted the single to take the lead again. Hamilton fought back with Calvillo throwing two TD passes to Thompson. The first covered 35 yards and a two-point convert attempt that followed failed. The second was an 82 yard passing play that was converted by Osbaldiston to give Hamilton an 8 point margin. Winnipeg QB Moore took the ball into the end zone himself to keep the game close. The ensuing two-point convert attempt, which would have tied the game, failed. Fortunately for Winnipeg, Hamilton punter Osbaldiston was forced to concede a safety sending the game into overtime. The only scoring of the first overtime period came as Osbaldiston booted a 40 yard field goal. Westwood kicked a 49 yard field goal halfway through the second overtime to tie the game up. With time expired on the clock, Osbaldiston stole the victory from Winnipeg on a 45 yard field goal. The win extends Hamilton’s lead over Winnipeg for the fourth playoff spot in the Northern Division.
