Sunday’s playoff game will be the fourth meeting between the Alouettes and Tiger-Cats this season.
Danny Maciocia’s men have won two of three regular season matches against Hamilton. Both teams have improved since their last meeting, which took place on September 23.
One of the changes for the Alouettes was the emergence of Walter Fletcher as a receiver coming out of the backfield. Also returning to the game is William Stanback. Maciocia hopes his two running backs will give his team an advantage.
“Our identity on offense has completely changed since we had Fletcher in the lineup and also with Stanback’s return. We spent a lot of time this week coming up with a plan where we take advantage of their qualities,” Maciocia summed up.
In three games against Hamilton this season, Trevor Harris has completed six touchdown passes and had one interception. The 36-year-old quarterback hopes to repeat his success against the TiCats defense.
“We have to make sure that we get the first games. We must also avoid the pressure and run with the ball. We count on three excellent carriers, ”illustrated the quarter.
“Our offensive line will have to be solid and we will have to take advantage of our chances,” he added.
The Alouettes will try to end a seven-game playoff losing streak against Hamilton on Sunday. Star receiver Eugene Lewis makes no secret of the fact that he doesn’t have the Tiger-Cats in his heart and is impatiently waiting for kickoff.
“It’s simple, the two teams don’t like each other! Both teams want to win. I played in several good duels between the two teams. We will have to be ready, ”presented the receiver.
