The Hamilton TigerCats handed the British Columbia Lions their fourth loss of the season last night with a 30-18 victory. It was a competitive first half as B.C. was up 18-17 at the half.
The Ti-Cats then hit the turning point of the night in the third quarter. As B.C. was one yard away from a touchdown, they made the mistake of trying to go over the top of the pile on both the first and second downs.
As One Ti-Cat defenceman knocked the ball out of one Lions rusher and recovered it for a very rare interception at the Ti-Cats one yard line. Deandra' Cobb earned himself the nickname of Lion tamer getting most of the TigerCats first downs finishing with a total of two touchdowns and 167 yards.
Although, rookie quarterback Quinton Porter made some rookie mistakes the Ti-Cats still managed to get above that .500 record for the second time this season improving to 3-2. TigerCats Wide Reciever Arland Bruce made his debut and got his hands on the ball twice.
Not a huge debut, but he hasn't had much time to learn the TigerCats offensive system and hasn't really broke the ice with the other TigerCats players. We once hated him for his TD celebrations and now I'm sure we'll love him and his celebrations.
Maybe he broke the ice with the other players at the after game party and will have a much more significant impact next week where the Ti-Cats face the Ecmonton Eskimos at Ivor Wynne stadium. The game starts at 6:30 on Saturday, August 8.
If you want to catch the game on the tube it will be broadcasting on TSN. If you have the chance to go watch the game live like me that's always good.
Oh, before I go. I would like to congratulate Corey Mace who the TigerCats dealt to the Toronto Argonauts for Arland Bruce. He has signed a one year deal with the NFL's Buffalo Bills.
