HAMILTON - Brandon Stewart and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats emphatically punched their playoff tickets Saturday. Arik Armstead Jersey .Stewart scored a key first-half touchdown before Brandon Banks and Nic Grigsby added fourth-quarter scores as Hamilton cemented top spot in the East Division with a 29-15 home win over the Montreal Alouettes. The Ticats capped their regular season with a 7-2 record, their best second-half mark since 72 when after a 1-3 start the squad won 10 straight en route to a Grey Cup title.Following a 1-6 start, Hamilton is a win away from a second straight Grey Cup appearance.Whoever is coming theyve got to come to Tiger-town to see us, Stewart said. What else would we want?You have to come through Hamilton to get to the ship.Hamilton (9-9) needed to beat Montreal (9-9) by eight or more points to finish first and host the division final Nov. 23. The Ticats have not hosted the CFL East final since 1998. The Alouettes won the first meeting 38-31 on Sept. 7.The Ticats also eliminated Toronto (8-10) from post-season contention. The Argos, who beat Ottawa 23-5 on Friday night, needed Montreal to win in order to take second in the East Division.The Alouettes will host the B.C. Lions in the East semifinal next weekend.Zach Collaros hit Banks on a 15-yard TD strike at 2:31 of the fourth, capping a smart 57-yard, 11-play drive that mostly came against a stiff wind in the third. After a Montreal field goal, Grigsby scored on a six-yard run at 11:24 to put Hamilton ahead 28-9.We never lost the faith, Collaros said of Hamiltons stunning turnaround. We knew we were a good football team, we knew we were a bunch of good football players.We finally started to execute a little bit and just played great team football.Added head coach/GM Kent Austin: We have a really strong locker-room and these men believe in each other. Theyre a no-excuse football team, they come to work, they understand they have to have constant improvement.Hamilton improved to 6-0 at Tim Hortons Field before an enthusiastic gathering of 24,186 that braved wet and windy conditions. The contest marked the first time the upper deck was open.Collaros was an efficient 20-of-28 passing for 208 yards with a TD an interception. Banks finished with five catches for a team-high 65 yards but Hamiltons offensive workhorse was Grigsby, who ran for game-high 93 yards on 19 carries.He really ran the ball well, especially on a day when we needed to be able to kill the clock against the wind, Austin said. To have the lead at halftime and then run out the clock in the third was big.Hamilton ran for 131 yards and scored 29 points against a Montreal defence that had allowed just 74 points over its last six games. Offensively, Hamilton had the ball for almost 37 minutes as the Alouettes offence managed 281 yards, including just 17 yards rushing.We did a great job against the run and got them into passing situations, Austin said.Montreal had its six-game win streak snapped and fell to 8-2 with Jonathan Crompton as its starter. Crompton was 18-of-35 passing for 284 yards and had a 17-yard TD strike to Duron Carter, but it came with 19 seconds remaining.Wed rather have it (bad game) now than next week, Crompton said. Were in the playoffs, were hosting a game so its a bitter-sweet feeling.Wed rather have a week off but, you know, lets do it the hard way.Montreal could be back in Hamilton for the East final, but Crompton said redemption is the furthest thing from his mind right now.Our focus is on the semifinal, he said. Weve got to come in and make sure we focus on the little things because now its win or go home and we know that.Weve just got to make sure we come out and perform like we need to.Justin Medlocks 23-yard field goal at 5:25 of the third put Hamilton ahead 14-6. It was set up by Craig Butlers recovery of an onside punt as Medlocks 17-yard kick hit Ed Gainey, who had lined up onside, allowing Butler to give the Ticats the ball at the Montreal 24-yard line.It was Hamiltons second such attempt and despite the two Ticats lining up onside, Montreals returners remained deep and allowed the ball to hit the ground rather than have someone come up to play it short.Medlock had two field goals, three converts and two singles.Whyte had Montreals field goals.The opportunistic Ticats scored 10 points off Montreal turnovers to take an 11-6 half-time advantage. Medlocks 18-yard field goal at 3:03 of the first came after Erik Harris recovered James Rodgers fumble on the opening kickoff.Stewarts recovery at 5:31 of the second to put Hamilton ahead 11-0. Stewart jumped on a loose ball in Montreals endzone after running back Chris Rainey couldnt handle Cromptons swing pass.Rainey, figuring it was an incomplete pass, gave no chase on the play.I dont know what he was doing but we all saw a live ball on defence, Stewart said. It was a scramble but I ended up with the ball.Cromptons 53-yard completion to S.J. Green was the big play on an 81-yard, six-play drive that Whyte capped with a 23-yard field goal to cut Hamiltons lead to 11-3 at 8:57. Whyte then connected from 30 yards out at 12:19.NOTES Defensive back Emanuel Davis and offensive lineman Jake Olson didnt dress for Hamilton while receiver Mardy Gilyard and defensive tackle Corvey Irvin were Montreals scratches . . . The Ticats have had CFL-high 83 players on their roster this year. Theyve also had 54 different starters, also most in the league. Montreal has had the fewest starters this season with 40 . . . Former All-Pro receiver Chad Johnson remains on Montreals injured list. Blaine Gabbert Jersey . Robert Griffin III, the No. 2 pick in the 2012 draft, set numerous rookie records and was picked AP Offensive Rookie of the Year for the Washington Redskins. Ted Kwalick Jersey . While the pair of Spain internationals return, midfielder Xavi Hernandez will not be included in the squad after failing to recover from a muscle strain to his left leg. http://www.custom49ersjersey.com/custom-russ-francis-jersey-large-1668d.html .com) - John Wall supplied 24 points and 11 assists in leading the Washington Wizards to a 102-91 win over the New York Knicks on Christmas Day.Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) - UNLV introduced Tony Sanchez as its new head football coach on Thursday. Sanchez was among the top high school coaches in the Las Vegas area, leading Bishop Gorman to a record of 85-5 and six straight state championships. We are delighted to welcome Tony Sanchez as the head football coach at UNLV, director of athletics Tina Kunzer-Murphy said. We arent changing the coach of our program today, we are changing our program. In Las Vegas, we arent afraid to take a bold approach to responding to challenges and this qualifies. We have been talking about changing the entire culture of this program and thats what todays announcement signifies. The Rebels needed a repplacement for Bobby Hauck, who resigned after a 2-11 record in 2014. Alyn Beals Jersey. Hauck spent five years with the Rebels and posted a record of 15-49. UNLV had just one winning season under Hauck, a 7-6 mark in 2013 that ended in a loss to North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. It was the Rebels first bowl appearance and winning season since 2000 under John Robinson. I am extremely excited to be UNLVs head coach, Sanchez said. Im fired up and ready to create excitement in the Las Vegas community and make the Rebels everybodys football team. Im grateful to Tina, President Snyder and our incoming President, Dr. Len Jessup, for giving me the opportunity to make a difference here. ' ' '
