OTTAWA - It wasnt the way the Ottawa Redblacks wanted their final home game of their
OTTAWA - It wasnt the way the Ottawa Redblacks wanted their final home game of their inaugural season to play out, but it ended in very similar fashion to most other games at TD Place this season. Chicago White Sox Jerseys .The Hamilton Tiger-Cats had a special teams touchdown and two defensive touchdowns Friday night in a 34-25 win over the Redblacks, who finish the year with two wins in nine home games.This is the way its been all season and you dont want to get complacent or be happy about losing. They all sting, defensive lineman Keith Shologan said.We had some mistakes that cost us big time but there were some positives. The offence moved the ball and scored, we just had some plays that didnt go our way on both sides of the ball.Both Ottawa quarterbacks, Henry Burris and Danny OBrien, threw a pick six while their counterpart Zach Collaros tossed a touchdown pass and no interceptions.The Tiger-Cats (8-9) needed the win because they close out the regular season next week against the Montreal Alouettes (8-8) while the Toronto Argonauts (7-9) host the Redblacks (2-15).With the West Division having already claimed the cross-over playoff berth, only two of the teams in the East Division will make the playoffs.We need Toronto not to win out. Were pulling for a loss this weekend, honestly, Tiger-Cats coach Kent Austin said.All we can do is take care of what we can take care of and now thats winning next week regardless of what happens in Toronto and Montreals game this weekend. We needed to put ourselves in a position to possibly challenge for the division and get the bye week, so well see what happens this weekend.The teams traded field goals in the first half of the fourth quarter with Justin Medlock connecting from 28-yards to put the Tiger-Cats up 27-22 before Brett Maher hit from 42-yards to pull the Renegades to within two points at 27-25.Then, with less than five minutes to play, while pinned deep in his own end, Burris threw an interception that Delvin Breaulx returned 26-yards for a touchdown.That gave the Tiger-Cats a 34-25 lead and the rest was left up to their defence, who intercepted another Burris pass — this one in the end zone with less than two minutes to play.Our defence held strong when we had all the turnovers. Offensively were moving the ball but we cant have that many turnovers. Its tough. We put ourselves in a hole and just couldnt get out of it, Redblacks guard Jon Gott said.We battled the whole way but weve got one more game. Well come out and compete because we want to win. Were not here to give games away so well come out and put up a good fight.Early in the third quarter the Tiger-Cats took their first lead as Medlock kicked a 22-yard field goal at 4:52 to put Hamilton up 17-15.Jeremiah Johnson was quick to respond for the Redblacks, though, as his 26-yard touchdown run eight minutes into the third quarter put the Redblacks back on top 22-17.The Redblacks were driving once again, but an interception return of 30 yards by Brandon Stewart put the Tiger-Cats on top again — this time 24-22 11 minutes into the quarter.The Redblacks went into halftime with a 15-14 lead because of a defensive stand towards the end of the second quarter that not only kept the Tiger-Cats out of the end zone, but also drove them out of field goal range.With the Redblacks driving inside the Hamilton end, OBrien threw an interception that was returned 47 yards to the Ottawa 29 by Ed Gainy.A penalty and a loss of 18-yards on a sack pushed the Tiger-Cats back to the Ottawa 44-yard line and then following an incomplete pass the Tiger Cats were forced to punt.The Redblacks opened the scoring at 8:49 of the first quarter on a 39-yard single off a missed field goal from Maher following a drive that covered 42 yards on eight plays before stalling.On their next series OBrien took over for Burris for the first time and moved the ball well before getting injured. He did return later in the game.Burris came back into the game and on the first play handed off to Johnson who ran in for the touchdown, giving the Redblacks an 8-0 advantage 13 minutes into the game.The Tiger-Cats responded quickly in the second quarter when Brandon Banks teamed up with Collaros on a 13-yard catch-and-run touchdown at 3:40.There were plays that we needed. There was a big defensive stop at the end of the game, the defence came up with two big turnovers that put points on the board for us and that was huge with the offence struggling, Banks said.We have to win out to get to the playoffs so this was a huge win and hopefully we can carry it out to the next one and do the same thing.The Redblacks regained an eight-point advantage just three minutes later when Matt Carter hauled in a 33-yard touchdown pass from Burris.In that same series Burris completed a 19-yard pass to Carter that put him over 55,000 passing yards for his career. He is third on the all-time list, still well back of the 79,816 yards of leader Anthony Calvillo.The excitement over that accomplishment and the Redblacks recent score was quickly quieted as Banks scored his second touchdown of the half, this one a 103-yard kickoff return at 7:09, just 37 seconds after the Redblacks touchdown.

"It was the way we wanted to start the season," said forward Stephan Leblanc, who led the way with five goals. "We were fired up and the goals were dropping for us." Toronto finished first overall last season so general manager Terry Sanderson saw no need for drastic change. The offence clicked for five goals on its first nine shots and the defence and goalie Nick Rose limited 2013 scoring champion Shawn Evans to one goal. Rob Hellyer, at 21 the youngest player in a veteran-laden attack, looked good on the right side as he assumed the bulk of the playing time that had previously been committed to the now-retired Blaine Manning. Hellyer popped three goals in his enhanced role. "With only six offensive guys out of 16 runners youre going to be out there all the time," said Hellyer, alluding to the leagues reduction to 16 from 18 runners. "Ive had a good three years with this team and Ive learned a lot. I think now itd be nice to step up and make a bigger contribution." Colin Doyle and Josh Sanderson have been amazing for a long time. They each scored twice. "We stuck to a game plan and it certainly worked," said Doyle. "I dont think we saw their best. Thats for certain. But, as far as starts go, that was a pretty good start for this team." Jesse Gamble, Kasey Beirnes, Garrett Billings and Ethan OConnor added one each for the Rock, who held quarter leads of 7-3, 9-4 and 12-6. "It was special," said new head coach John Lovell. "Our guys worked really hard for this." Billings had nine assists in front of an Air Canada Centre crowd of 11,120. "Its a credit to the chemistry we have up front," Billings said of his 10-point night. "It was a great game for Blaine Manning, who as offensive coach was behind the bench for the first time. "Its great to put up numbers like that. Ive been with this core group for four years now so Ive got good chemistry playing with Steph going back to our junior days and ever since Josh Sanderson put on a Rock jersey for the second time weve had great chemistry, too. It helps knowing where all the guys are going to be on the floor. "t;Its fun. Tim Anderson Jersey. Id have liked to have scored a couple more goals. But what can you do?" Jeff Shattler scored four goals, Dane Dobbie had two and Evans, Daryl Veltman, Geoff Snider, Curtis Dickson and Matthew Dinsdale one each for the Roughnecks, who were outshot 61-51. Toronto led by six entering the fourth quarter but Calgary scored four of the next five goals to close within 13-10. Biernes broke the run with his goal at 11:41 and rookie OConnor scored his first pro goal into an empty net to seal the victory. Gamble supplied repeated transition thrusts all night. "It was a great way to start the season, to know that were competitive and that we have the right guys," he said. "We can compete in this league. That wasnt a bad (Calgary) team. Theyve got a lot of skill and they are going to compete for the Champions Cup so this win gives us a lot of confidence." The Rocks seven-goal first quarter proved to be the difference in the end. "We got a big lead but they didnt go away," said Rose. "We knew that about them. Theyre going to be tough to beat all year. But we earned the win tonight. Any time your O puts up seven for you in one quarter, its a nice feeling. That takes the stress off making the next save. The O was awesome." Calgary coach Curt Malawsky gave Shattler and Poulin an A for effort. But his teams goals-against numbers were poor last year and they were again Friday night. The first quarter put his players in too deep a hole. "Yeah, no question," he said of a deficit his club couldnt overcome. "Youre down 7-3 to a team like that in their building. Its tough to battle back. They went on three three-goal runs and a five-goal run and we only answered back with a four-goal run. We didnt do a very good job of controlling momentum."
