Congi's 7 FGs get Roughriders past Tiger-Cats 37-24

Aug 1, 2010 - 2:05 AM REGINA (CP) - The Saskatchewan Roughriders weathered a record-tying performance from Arland Bruce III and got seven field goals from Luca Congi in a 37-24 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday at Mosaic Stadium.

Bruce had his way with the Saskatchewan secondary for much of the game, finishing with 16 catches for 272 yards with two touchdowns. The reception total tied a CFL single-game record previously shared by Terry Greer, Brian Wiggins, and Derrell Mitchell.

But the Roughriders seized control in the second half, outscoring the TiCats 24-10 on the strength of three Congi field goals, a kickoff single from Eddie Johnson, and Wes Cates' second rushing major of the game.

Darian Durant's 35-yard third-quarter pass to Andy Fantuz set up Cates's first touchdown run, which gave the Riders a lead they would not relinquish.

That major followed four straight field goals by Congi, who had 12 of the Riders' 13 points up to that point in the game.

Congi's longest kick of the day came from 42 yards out.

One highlight for Bruce came when he danced around Riders defensive back Lance Frazier on a 27-yard reception in the second quarter.

But Frazier made amends in the third when he picked off quarterback Kevin Glenn and returned the ball 83 yards to the Hamilton two-yard line, setting up Congi's fifth field goal.

Sandro DeAngelis' 18-yard fourth-quarter field goal and Bruce's second touchdown reception provided the second-half offence for Hamilton (1-4).

Johnson also kicked a punt single for Saskatchewan (4-1), which regained top spot in the CFL's West Division.

Durant completed 21 of his 35 pass attempts for 270 yards with one interception.

Glenn was 31-for-45 with 425 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.
