Williams comes off sidelines, leads Tiger-Cats to rare win

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:48 PM
HAMILTON, Ontario (Ticker) -- Reserve quarterback Ritchie Williams helped engineer a comeback from an 11-point, first-half deficit to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to a 24-20 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Friday night.

With Hamilton trailing, 17-6, Williams took over for starter Casey Printers - who left the game with an injured hamstring - with 32 seconds left in the first half.

While the Tiger-Cats' offense managed only a field goal in the third quarter, Williams guided a 10-play, 99-yard drive at the start of fourth that was capped by a 19-yard catch-and-run TD by running back Jesse Lumsden to give Hamilton a 19-18 lead. It then converted the ensuing two-point conversion for a three-point advantage.

On its next possession, Calgary fumbled again on its own 25-yard line, and Hamilton's Nick Setta hit a 30-yard field goal - his fifth of the contest - for a 24-18 bulge.

The Stampeders (6-5-1) mounted a strong final drive, but defensive back Dwight Anderson intercepted Akili Smith in the end zone to seal the win for the Tiger-Cats (2-10).
