CFL Game Day: Hamilton at Montreal (September 11)

The Labour Day rematches continue on into Sunday, with the Tiger Cats making the trek to Montreal and a return engagement with the Alouettes.

When they take to the field they will be facing a Montreal squad that seems to be suffering some of the pressure of a less than successful (by Montreal standards of recent years) season,  events of the last week suggesting that there's a wee bit of finger pointing going on in the Montreal room of late.

Apologies and vows to work harder were the order of the week as the Alouettes looked for answers to their  Labour Day loss in Hamilton and make plans to try and return the favour in front of the home faithful on Sunday.

The Cats on the other hand arrive in Montreal a most confident club, their Labour Day victory providing them with the incentive to move forward in the CFL east, in fact Hamilton which did not get rattled when they fell behind early last week, seems completely in control by games end.

Their defence rushing Anthony Calvillo, rushing his throws the defensive backs removing options by pass and making key turnovers that spelled the end of Montreal's chances last week. The Cats defence will be looking to provide much of the same treatment on Sunday, quite aware that another victory over the Als could go a long way towards securing at least second and keeping pace with the Bombers for a shot at first in the East.

Game time 1 PM ET (10 AM PT)
