Ticats make the playoffs courtesy of the Alouettes loss


For the fifth time in the last six seasons and just a year removed from a disappointing 6-12 campaign, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are back in the CFL playoffs.

The Ticats clinched both a spot in the post-season and a home playoff date courtesy of the Montreal Alouettes’ 12-6 loss to the Calgary Stampeders on Sunday. Hamilton will host either Eastern Semi-Final on Sun., Nov, 11 at 1 p.m. at Tim Hortons Field or the final on Nov. 18.

With four games left in the regular season, the 7-7 Tiger-Cats trail the 8-6 Ottawa Redblacks by two points. The two teams play a home-and-home set starting Oct. 19 in Ottawa with re-match going eight days later in Hamilton. Ottawa currently leads the season series 1-0 courtesy of a 21-15 win in July.

Tickets for the playoff game will go on sale to the general public on Wed., Oct. 17 at 11 a.m.
