Bombers' Hall has heck of a night
By KIRK PENTON, QMI Agency
WINNIPEG - Henoc Muamba wasn’t the only one getting best-game-of-the-year love from head coach Tim Burke on Saturday.
Burke said defensive end Alex Hall put it all together against the Ticats like he hasn’t done all season. Hall sacked Henry Burris twice and led the CFL with eight sacks heading into Saturday night’s action.
“A lot of things you don’t see are what he does against the run game, and he was very solid against the run. He did a great job there,” Burke said.
“Obviously he’s a good pass rusher. He’s got a lot of talent. He played his best game, by far, of the year, too.”
Hall on Friday night was more concerned with the win than finding out he was leading the CFL sack race.
“Oh really? I didn’t know that,” he said. “It’s a great feeling, especially winning the game like this. Shouts out to my teammates. I’m just happy to win a game finally. It’s been a long time.”
