Sure, let’s relive that game again. Troy Davis scores a touchdown with less than a minute to play and to tie the game, McManus completes a pass to Ibrahim Tounkara (remember him) for the 2-pt. convert. The Riders get the ball back but as they get into scoring position to win the game in the final seconds of regulation time, Tim Cheatwood forces a fumble which was scooped up by Troy Saunders. In overtime, Paul McCallum misses on a 35-yard field goal attempt. The 'Cats get the ball and on second down, Paul Osbaldiston kicks a 38-yard field goal (after missing 3 of 4 field goal attempts in regulation) to give the 'Cats the 27-24 victory.
Fri 9/12/2003 H Saskatchewan Roughriders 27-24 W OT Hamilton, ON Ivor Wynne Stadium 14313 attendance
The worst year in the Little General’s coaching career. Attendance has certainly improved as well as the new stadium . No more sitting on wood . Obviously much more secure ownership with the Caretaker . We’re living the dream and it will only get better .
It’s crazy and fun filled fact time again : That dreadful 2003 Cats team had a total of thirteen holdover players on it that also played on the ‘99’ Grey Cup team .
The bakers dozen were as follows…
Tony Akins-wr / Archie Amerson - sb / Danny McManus - qb / Carl Coulter - c / Dave Hack - ot / Rob Hitchcock - db / Chris Shelling - lb / Trevor Shaw - wr / Kyle Walters - db / Joe Montford - de / Warren Muzika - lb / Paul Osbaldiston - k / Jarrett Smith - rb
