After last nights game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers started out as a batlle of Field Goal Kickers.The Ti-Cats managed to pull out a win and win two consecutive games since well, i believe the 2006 season and they haven't had a winning record since the 2004 season.
It was retro night at Ivor Wynne honouring the 60's ti-cats, the players and cheerleaders wore 60's style uniforms. Well, Garney Henley was named Most Outstanding Ti-Cat of the 60's.
It ended at the half tied 6-6 with both teams scoring two field goals. Then, the second half came around and the Ti-Cats came out guns blazing. I'm glad to see no one was seriously injured after that bone crunching, ear pearcing tackle that happened in the 4th quarter. I can't find a video for you guys who want to see it. But, can tell you it was a full speed ahead helmet on helmet collision.
The Tiger Cats we're playing good offence and great defence giving up 7 points in the second half, while scoring 19. to a final score of 25-13 in front of an almost sell out and crazy crowd at Ivor Wynne Stadium of 24,292.
It's still early in the season and may not mean a lot to those outside the Hammer. But, to Hamilton fans and Tigercat players and coaches this is a huge step in the right direction.
The Tigercats next game is at Montreal against the Allouttes where the Tiger cats will look to break some more history by going 3-1 for the season. But, for now it's a week of team and press events, practice, more practice and some R&R.
