The reason I like football is because it is the ultimate team game.
The lead story of Saskatchewan’s 27-19 win over Hamilton was that Brandon Bridge got the victory.
The Toronto born quarterback became the first Canadian starter to win a CFL game in more than three decades.
Much is being made about the fact 10 Rider players suffered injuries in the football game and yet the team was still able to register the win.
There are also those stories that fly under the radar. Despite giving up four sacks in the football game, pass protection for an inexperienced Brandon Bridge was pretty good.
Kienan LaFrance didn’t play a huge role in moving the offence, but did his part to help keep Bridge upright.
On defence, yes, Ed Gainey had another multi-interception game. He leads the league in interceptions.
However, Kacy Rodgers and Jeff Hecht forced two Hamilton turnovers, which played a huge role in holding the Ti-Cats at bay in the first 30 minutes.
Ultimate team game indeed.
