Game Notes

Game Summary

It was the best of the west against the best of the east Sunday afternoon in Hamilton as the hometown Tiger-Cats played host to the Calgary Stampeders. Both teams entered the game leading their respective divisions. Stampeder K, Mark McLoughlin, got his team on the board at 1:55 of the opening frame scoring a 62-yard single off a missed FG. He added to that lead at 6:23 with a 20-yard FG rounding out the first quarter scoring. Calgary continued to pour it on and put up the game’s first major 52 second into the second quarter when RB Kelvin Anderson scored from 12 yards out. McLoughlin’s convert increased their lead to 11-0. Hamilton K Paul Osbaldiston cut the lead to 10 with a 73-yard punting single but Calgary continued to pressure. At 10:46 of the second frame, Calgary QB Jeff Garcia called his own number from 8-yards out, his sixth rushing TD of the season. McLoughlin’s convert increased Calgary’s lead to 18-1. The Hamilton offence got on track at 12:21 when QB Danny McManus teamed up with WR Andrew Grigg for a 57-yard TD. Osbaldiston’s convert trimmed the Calgary lead to 18-8. Osbaldiston would account for the final points of the first half when his 31-yard FG split the uprights with 23 seconds remaining. The teams went into the locker room with the Stampeders in front by an 18-11 margin. The Stampeders opened the third quarter scoring at 6:22 when McLoughlin nailed his second FG of the game, this one a 37-yard effort. However, the relentless Tiger-Cats bounced back and at 9:18, RB Archie Amerson hooked up with McManus for a 22-yard receiving TD. Osbaldiston’s convert rounded out the third quarter scoring with the Stampeders ahead by a 21-18 margin. However, this was as close as they would get. At 3:17 of the final quarter, Garcia scored his second rushing TD of the game, a 1-yard plunge. McLoughlin’s convert increased their lead to 28-18. The Stamps closed out the game’s scoring at 6:54 when Anderson carried it in from 10-yards out. McLoughlin’s convert made the final from Ivor Wynne Stadium, Calgary 35, Hamilton 18.
