Cats Fall to Stampeders

The Hamilton Tiger Cats showed moments of promise, but the result bore a striking resemblance to pretty much all of their other games in their 20-14 CFL season. Despite clawing their way back into the contest, eventually pulling to within 3 points, the Tabbies ended up losing to the Calgary Stampeders, 30-20 at Ron Joyce Stadium at McMaster University Saturday afternoon. The Cats record falls to 1-6, with a bye week coming up followed by the Labour Day tilt against the Argos. The Stampeders are a mirror image of the Cats, sporting a fine 6-1 record in the West. Here’s a look at the action from today. – Barry Gray
