Hurricanes run out of wind, blown away by Hilltops


Hamilton Hurricanes, who dominated their Ontario Football Conference opponents all season, got a taste of their own medicine on Saturday (Nov. 12). And it was a bitter taste.

The Saskatoon Hilltops shut down the Hurricanes running game and had five interceptions in defeating the Hurricanes, 29-1, to claim the Canadian Bowl, emblematic of junior football supremacy in Canada at Ivor Wynne Stadium.

For the Hilltops, it was their 15th Canadian Junior Football League title while the Hurricanes were looking for their first since 1972. The Hilltops victory at Hamilton’s Ivor Wynne Stadium ties them with the Regina Rams for the most national crowns in Canadian junior football.
