1986 GREY CUP GAME AT VANCOUVER (Sunday, November 30- 59621)
HAMILTON TIGER-CATS 39, EDMONTON ESKIMOS 15 - The third time proved to be the charm for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Losers of the previous two Grey Cups, the Ticats gave their long suffering fans something to celebrate with an unexpected dominant performance over the Edmonton Eskimos. Hamilton defenders, led by Grover Covington and Ben Zambiasi, sacked Edmonton quarterbacks Matt Dunigan and Damon Allen a total of 10 times. They also forced eight turnovers to tie a Grey Cup record. Hamilton jumped out to a 29-0 lead at halftime. They got it going early when Covington forced a Dunigan fumble, the ball recovered by Mitchell Price. This set up quarterback Mike Kerrigan’s 35-yard touchdown pass to Steve Stapler. The game was just 1:35 old. The Ticats then got a big play from their special teams. Mark Streeter blocked Ken Dixon’s punt attempt, which Jim Rockford recovered for another touchdown. Hamilton then rode the boot of kicker Paul Osbaldiston, who kicked five of his record-tying six field goals in the first 30 minutes, two of which came off of turnovers; one on Howard Fields’ interception off of Allen, and another on a Dunigan fumble forced by Covington. Edmonton’s offence produced minus-one yard in offence in the first 30 minutes. The Ticats continued their assault in the second half, when Kerrigan hit Ron Ingram with a 44-yard touchdown pass. The Eskimos finally got on the scoreboard late in the third quarter courtesy of a blocked punt by Larry Wruck which Craig Shaffer recovered at the Hamilton 37. Quarterback Matt Dunigan got the Eskimos to six yards from the goal line, and backup Damon Allen ran it in from there. The Edmonton added another major the fourth quarter, but by then it was too late. Allen hit Brian Kelly with a 13-yard touchdown pass then ran it in for a two-point convert. Osbaldiston added his sixth field goal, a 47-yarder in the game’s final minute. Covington finished the game with three sacks. Zambiasi recovered two fumbles, had one quarterback sack and six tackles. It was Hamilton’s first Grey Cup title since 1972, and their first win over the Eskimos since 1977. The Ticats entered the game as 12-point underdogs. It was Al Bruno’s second Grey Cup triumph, his first as a head coach. Bruno won one as a player with the 1952 Toronto Argonauts.
