TIGER-CATS 38 BLUE BOMBERS 8

HAMILTON - Zach Collaros threw three first-half touchdown passes and Emanuel Davis returned two interceptions for scores as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 38-8 on Sunday afternoon to remain unbeaten at Tim Hortons Field.

Hamilton (4-2) earned its ninth straight victory at the stadium before yet another enthusiastic sellout gathering of 24,068. The Ticats captured their fourth win in five games overall to move into a first-place tie in the East Division with Toronto (4-2) and Ottawa (4-2).

It's Hamilton's longest home win streak since an 11-game run in 2001-'02.

Winnipeg (3-4) suffered its second loss to Hamilton, dropping a 52-26 home decision July 2. The Bombers remain tied for third with B.C. in the West Division.

Winnipeg also lost starter Drew Willy (knee) late in the third after taking a hit from Hamilton linebacker Erik Harris. Willy remained on the field clutching his right knee before walking off the field albeit with his arms around two medical personnel.

Willy was 16-of-27 passing for 171 yards with a touchdown and interception before being replaced by Brian Brohm.

Gosh, Winnipeg is in many respects having a far worse time of it than our Riders lately. They need to find a better back-up to injury prone Willy. Time to trade them Tino maybe?

Hamilton fans were very classy when the Winnipeg QB went down. They showed their concern then clapped in relief when Drew Willy managed to leave the field.

A year ago when Darian went down in Winnipeg it was a different story. The fans cheered that he was injured and heckled Darian as he was leaving the stadium. I could not believe how classless Winnipeg fans were.

Willy done for the season. Too bad - he was having a very good season.

Regarding 'A year ago when Darian went down in Winnipeg it was a different story. The fans cheered that he was injured and heckled Darian as he was leaving the stadium. I could not believe how classless Winnipeg fans were.'

Get your facts straight.

Fans were cheering after Durant was down because he fumbled the ball and the Bombers recovered. There were booing when he left the field because they announced that it was no fumble, due to the whistle having blown.

Believe what you want to believe I guess. Were you even there ?

For a guy everyone thinks of as 'offense minded' Kent Austin has quite a defense.

Most over rated player in cfl = Drew Willy.

I bet he plays next week. Every time he gets hit he makes it seem like his career is over then miraculously he is fine. Soft!
