- Free Agency
The Division Finals have come and gone, and two teams remain: The Calgary Stampeders and Ottawa REDBLACKS emerged victorious on Sunday.
Let’s take a look at how things shook down on the social.
Ottawa 46, Hamilton 27
The REDBLACKS handled their business and then some, smacking Hamilton 46-27 and confirming their status as the best team in the East Division in 2018.
Ottawa QB Trevor Harris threw a league-record six touchdown passes in a playoff game, while Ticats pivot Jeremiah Masoli chucked three interceptions.

Them: “Trevor Harris isn’t a big-game quarterback”

A big-time crowd showed up and showed out for the big game in Ottawa, and a number of REDBLACKS took to Twitter to thank their fans.

Then, as the Western Final wound down, the REDBLACKS sent a little late-night message to their 106th Grey Cup opponents.

Calgary 22, Winnipeg 14
CFL on TSN analyst Milt Stegall summarized Sunday’s late game succinctly: Calgary scored a trio of touchdowns, while Matt Nichols and the Winnipeg offence were held out of the end zone.

The fallout of the loss, on the Bombers side of the matchup, was understandably tough.

“Honestly, I was in the bathroom crying so I waited until I calmed down a little bit and then I just went up to each and every player and told them I loved them and appreciated everything they did,” #Bombers RB Andrew Harris said. “I’m heartbroken man.” #wfp https://t.co/0cWcDk3bBe

All smiles and continued determination on the Stamps side of things, meanwhile.
