The Ticats D seemed to gel in the second half and Darrell Adams had a great game. In the photo above he’s about to tackle Fred Reid, one of many such instances throughout the game.
It was retro week in the CFL and I really liked the Ticats retro uniform. Whether it was faithful to the 60s or not, I’m not sure, but it looked good.
Here’s the link to the photo gallery. There’s a ton of images, and it might get a bit repetitive for certain players. Sometimes that happens when trying to get as many shots of as many players as possible. If it’s overwhelming, do a search within the gallery for specific players.
Some more photos from the game, particularly of a few guys who don’t normally get much coverage in the press:
Linebacker Otis Floyd peers between the Bombers O.
Linebacker Markeith Knowlton (25) punches the ball out of the grasp of Blue Bombers wide receiver Brock Ralph (80). Knowlton also caused Fred Reid to fumble on a different play, which was recovered by Lawrence Gordon.
Defensive back Lawrence Gordon (29) tackles Blue Bombers quarterback Stefan LeFors (17) with direct helmet contact on LeFors’s throwing arm. It was a pretty hard hit too, which might not be so evident in the photo, but the result was LeFors laid out for a few seconds after the play below:
And another nice play be Lawrence Gordon (29) to prevent a reception by Winnipeg Blue Bombers wide receiver Romby Bryant (81).
A close call here. Bombers cornerback Jovon Johnson (2) is unable to intercept a pass intended for Tiger-Cats wide receiver Marquay McDaniel (6). This is just one frame from a nice sequence in the gallery.
Coming out of the huddle offensive linemen George Hudson (52), Marwan Hage (62) and Peter Dyakowski (67).
Wide receiver Chris Davis gains some yards.
