Chris Williams caught a touchdown and added two
more scores on returns Saturday as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated
the Toronto Argonauts 36-27 to pick up their first win of the
Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris was 12-of-27 passing for 181
yards and three touchdowns as the Ticats improved to 1-2. Burris was
also intercepted once.
Ricky Ray connected on 23-of-38 pass attempts for 227 yards to go
along with an interception of his own. Jarious Jackson and Cory Boyd
scored touchdowns for Toronto (1-2).
In the end though, the night belonged to Williams, who had a
34-yard TD reception to open the scoring to go along with 88-yard
punt return touchdown and another score of 119 yards off a missed
Andy Fantuz scored his first TD as a Ticat and Bakari Grant added
his first of the season on a six-yard reception with eight minutes
left in the game to douse any Argo hopes.
It was the second game in a row that Williams has scored on a
punt return. That makes a total of seven special teams TDs scored in
the first three weeks of the CFL this season. There were only eight
scored all of last season.
