JoJuan Armour couldn't have picked a better moment for his first CFL interception.

The Calgary Stampeders linebacker was facing his former team when a pass landed in his arms.

What makes it that much better is the Stamps whipped the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 43-16 last night.

"To have it against Casey and the Tiger-Cats on our home field, it's a beautiful thing," the fifth-year CFL veteran said.

It seems like Armour was overdue for an interception, and he had this one easy because defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones told him it would be there.

"I usually rush off the edge," Armour said. "Wherever they need me, that's where I will go. Coach Jones was 100 percent correct. I've never been as prepared for games with any other team."

Armour had 84 defensive tackles with the Ticats last season, but he only needed two last night to help the Stamps to victory. His interception was one of six the Ticats committed, while the Stamps offence piled up yardage and only turned it over once.

Two of those turnovers were caused by defensive back Brandon Browner, who forced a fumble on punt coverage and picked off Richie Williams late in the game.

But Browner was just happy they held the Ticats running backs to just 57 yards rushing.

"We sort of wish Jesse (Lumsden) could have played because we were looking forward to playing him all week long," Browner said about the injured star running back. "But we got the win and did what we were supposed to do."
