HAMILTON TIGER-CATS (9-9) 39

WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS (7-11) 17

Top offensive player

Hamilton quarterback Kevin Glenn completed 28 of 42 passes for 316 yards and one touchdown, with two interceptions as the ex-Bomber led the Tiger-Cats to a self-satisfying 39-17 victory over Winnipeg. He completely outshone Winnipeg QB Michael Bishop.

Top defensive player

Bomber linebacker Ike Charlton had 11 defensive tackles and a knockdown despite being bothered by cramps in the second half. Honourable mention to Winnipeg LB Barrin Simpson, who had eight defensive tackles.

Top special teams player

In his first game as a pro, Hamilton kicker Jeremy Ito connected on three field goals and had a 40.3-yard punt average. Honourable mention to Winnipeg's Derrick Doggett, who had five special teams tackles.

Key play

Winnipeg defensive back Lenny Walls just intercepted a Glenn pass when Hamilton linebacker Markeith Knowlton picked off yet another poor Bishop pass and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown. That gave the Tiger-Cats a 29-16 lead with 6:29 left in the game.

Smack of the match

Bomber LB Derrick Doggett simply stuck Hamilton punt returner Drisane James in the first quarter.

Highlight reel

Bishop hit wide receiver Titus Ryan with a long bomb. Ryan caught the ball, broke two tackles, deked left, broke another tackle, then raced for a 60-yard score that raised the roof over the stadium.
