OTTAWA - Brett Maher kicked a 38-yard field goal in double overtime Friday to give the Hamilton Tiger-Cats a 39-36 victory over the Ottawa Redblacks.

The win kept the second-place Tiger-Cats (7-9-0) in the hunt for the East Division title while also securing them a playoff spot. They now trail the Redblacks (7-8-1) by just a single point with two weeks to play in the regular season.

The Redblacks turned the ball over on their second possession of overtime after quarterback Henry Burris was stripped while being sacked.

Maher had an 18-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime to give the Tiger-Cats a 36-33 lead but Chris Milo connected from 45-yards out to tie the game 36-36.

At 2:42 of the fourth quarter, a 10-yard touchdown pass from Jeremiah Masoli to John Chiles, once converted, pulled the Tiger-Cats to within a single point of the Redblacks. Burris responded with a four-yard touchdown pass to Ernest Jackson, but the extra point was wide and the lead was seven at 33-26.

Hamilton tied the game tied the game when CJ Gable completed a five-yard catch-and-run touchdown from Masoli with less than five minutes to play.

I enjoyed watching this game! Wet and wild night. Anything can happen in those conditions and makes for some unforseen events.

Calgary is setting up for a fall soon. The best laid plans always have a few disruptions.

I don't care cause I wheeled Calgary and Hamilton with some NFL div winners for Grey Cup Champs at beginning of this season. I'm winning either way

Hamilton won't make it to the grey cup. The western 4th place team will send the golfing.
