The Roughriders beat the Tiger-Cats 20-18 on a last second field goal in their final meeting at Mosaic Stadium Saturday night.
Former McMaster star Tyler Crapigna ended the game with a 29 yard field goal with no time left.
He opened the scoring early in the first quarter with a 48 yard field goal to make it 3-0 Saskatchewan.
Zach Collaros’ first pass of the game was intercepted by former Ticats defensive back Ed Gainey but the Riders could not capitalize on it as their second drive of the game stalled at midfield.
Collaros made up for his mistake by engineering a seven play, 105 yard drive that culminated in a 16 yard touchdown pass to Brandon Banks.
The Riders retook the lead less than two minutes later when Darian Durant threw a 46 yard touchdown to Armanti Edwards who made a spectacular diving catch at the goal line to make it 10-7.
The Cats tied the game at 10 all when Brett Maher split the uprights from 33 yards out.
But Saskatchewan grabbed the lead again, 17-10, when Darian Durant scored on a one yard touchdown run.
It came one play after video review overruled a fumble recovery and touchdown by Ticats defensive end Adrian Tracy.
Cassius Vaughn stripped the ball away from backup Riders QB Mitchell Gale and Tracy ran it back for a 106 yard major, but the replay showed that Gale’s knee was down before he lost the football.
Brett Maher was wide right on a 42 yard field goal attempt in the third quarter and was wide right on a 53 yard try in the fourth period, which resulted in a single, and a 17-11 Roughriders lead.
On a 2nd and 1 play, Jeremiah Masoli ran in for a 21 yard touchdown and an 18-17 Tiger-Cats lead.
6-7 Hamilton next plays October 1 when they host the 11-1-1 Calgary Stampeders.
