TICATS UPSET REDBLACKS 26-22
The loss may be the least of the Redblacks (4-7-1) worries at this point as starting quarterback Trevor Harris left the game midway through the third quarter after having his right shoulder driven into the ground and was later sporting a sling on the sidelines. Harris was 18-for-28 for 193 yards and one TD.
Drew Tate made his first appearance and finished the game 7-for-12 for 108 yards and one touchdown.
Hamilton's Jeremiah Masoli was impressive in his second appearance going 17-for-31 for 231 yards as the Tiger-Cats improve to 2-8-0. Gable finished with 74 yards on 11 carries.
Despite a valiant second-half effort, the Redblacks were unable to complete a comeback in front of 24,901.
After an ugly first-half performance, Ottawa got off to a much better start in the second _ scoring a 22-yard TD on its opening drive that started with a 27-yard punt return by Diontae Spencer, who also scored the TD. With a two-point convert the Redblacks were back in the game trailing 23-15.
