Home Streak Blows Up Bombers

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats gave visiting Winnipeg Blue Bombers players and fans, below, nothing to toot about Sunday night in CFL action, as the home squad extended their win streak at Tim Hortons Field to nine games with a 38-8 victory.


In fact, the game was pretty much over by the end of the first half as Hamilton raced out to a 31-0 lead at the break thanks to three touchdown passes from quarterback Zach Collaros and a 65-yard interception return from defensive back Emanuel Davis, below as he crosses the goal line for Hamilton’s first touchdown of the night.


CFL and Tiger-Cats rookie Ray Holley, below, rushed eight times for 25 yards.



Hamilton wide receiver and kick returner Brandon “Speedy B” Banks had two catches, a kick return, and six punt returns for 72 total yards. He also had a punt return touchdown, below, called back due to a Hamilton penalty.


Winnipeg linebacker Sam Hurl had three tackles in the game and one quarterback sack.


Blue Bombers quarterback Drew Willy went 16 of 27 for 171 yards with a touchdown and interception before leaving the field, below, after hyper-extending his leg late in the third quarter.


The Ti-Cats are now in a three way tie for first place in the East Division with Toronto and Ottawa, all with 4-2 records.
