Hamilton Tiger-Cats stumbles again in second half, loses big to Argos – Hamilton
Jamal Peters made three interceptions and returned one for a 67-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter as the Toronto Argonauts put the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to flight 37-20 at BMO Field Friday night.
Peters also scored picks in the first and third quarters, as Toronto (5-5) scored 20 points on six Hamilton (3-8) turnovers, three of which came in the second half.
Ticats QB Dane Evans made his first start since sustaining a shoulder injury against the Argos on Aug. 6, completing just 19 of 30 passes for 244 yards and three interceptions.
Hamilton had a 19-13 lead midway through the third quarter thanks to the dynamic play of backup quarterback Matthew Shiltz.
Shiltz went 13-for-15 for 144 yards and one touchdown before sustaining an apparent right hand injury when fired by Toronto defensive lineman Shane Ray.
