So, Saturday’s unbelievable comeback win by the Tiger-Cats wasn’t a dream?
It really happened?
Yes it did.
Down 16-3 at halftime, and pretty much left for dead when they trailed 23-10 after 3 quarters, the Ticats dug deep and played their best 4th quarter of the season.
Considering the circumstances, it may have been Hamilton’s best 4th quarter performance in many, many years.
Montreal’s Sean Whyte was short on a 43-yard field goal attempt into the wind at Alumni Stadium, and Brandon Banks returned it for a 107-yard touchdown, as Hamilton won a thriller over the Alouettes 27-24.
The Ticats could have folded the tent during the chilly 4th quarter in Guelph, but they did the exact opposite, winning for only the 2nd time this season when trailing at halftime.
The Cats outscored the Al’s 17-1 in the final frame and secured a home playoff game against Montreal on November 10.
The playoff rematch between Hamilton and Montreal is going to be very interesting.
The Al’s defence has proven to be a tough nut to crack, but the Ticats’ resolve is an immeasurable quality that can be a dangerous ingredient in the post-season.
All I know is, I can’t wait for the Eastern Semi-Final.
