The Tiger-Cats have served notice… they’re ready for the CFL playoffs.
Hamilton completed a home-and-home sweep of the Argos with an impressive 24-18 win Monday night at Alumni Stadium in Guelph.
The Ticats got big performances from their big time players, and for the first time this season, played a full 60 minute ball game.
Henry Burris threw for 350 yards and made a couple of huge first down runs late in the game.
C.J. Gable has solidified himself as the CFL’s rookie of the year with 118 rushing yards, 46 receiving yards and a touchdown.
And there was no 3rd quarter lull last night, in fact, Hamilton outscored the Boatmen 8-3 in the third period, and held on to break Toronto’s 6 game road winning streak.
Hamilton not only has the Ballard Cup for winning the season series, but the Cats — at 8-and-7 — are finally over the .500 mark this year.
Just two points behind Toronto for first place in the East, the Ticats are certainly in position to flex their muscle in a back-to-back set against the Alouettes and then take the season finale in Winnipeg.
After exchanging wins and losses for the last several weeks, the Cats are playing their best football at the time of the year that you want to be doing so.
