CALGARY - The thought of two home losses is enough to make Henry Burris cringe.
A third one? Let’s not even discuss it.
“We’ve lost two games at home this year, and that’s already embarrassing enough,” Burris said as his Stamps get set to face the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Friday at McMahon Stadium.
“Our next big game will here during the West final. We need to re-establish our dominance here. What better test than to do it against Hamilton, probably the hottest team in the league right now.”
The Ticats have won three straight games, allowing just 17 points in the process. The Stamps are coming off a 36-31 loss to the B.C. Lions, and the Ticats (9-7) have a much better record.
“It’s a team that will pose a lot of pressures on us, in terms of worries and concerns,” Burris said. “We feel confident going into this game. We just have to play Stampeder football.
“We want to make sure we can play the type of football we know we can play.”
