Ticats Win First Half Against Stampeders, Get Crushed in Second Half, Lose 32 to 20

The game last night was fun to watch as a Cat fan for the first half. After a slow start, the Cats took control both offensively and defensively and every penalty, challenge and ball caught near the sidelines went out way. Then the Cats didn't score a point in the second half, which is pretty hard, considering kicker Justin Medlock's field goal range.

What happened in the second half? I'm not really sure. The much praised young receiving core didn't do anything. They didn't really seem to be getting open and Glenn didn't do much either. Arland Bruce is probably laughing a bit in Vancouver. Statwise, Aaron Kelly had a good game with five catches for 92 yards and Williams had six for 48 yards. You have to wonder if Marquay McDaniel will be back in the lineup next week. Unless Maurice Mann is finally over his freak locker room injury.

Calgary's defence showed me something the second half so kudos to them. Hamilton's defence was a bit disappointing, but when the offense hangs you out to dry and can't even manage a field goal, there's not a lot you can do.

Hamilton is a decent team this year, but missed a chance this week to show they're a great team.
