The ’Canes got off to a quick start in the Ontario Football Conference clash with two rushing touchdowns from Osayi Iginuan early in the opening quarter. But the Titans were not ready to throw in the towel and answered with their lone TD on a kick return.

Alas, the Hurricanes turned up the heat with two more major scores before half ended – one a 60-yard punt return by Mike Ciaverella – taking a 33-7 lead into the intermission.

Both teams toweled off for the second half and the Hurricanes defense completed a shut out led by Damian Tesoro and Dan Fascione with multiple tackles and sacks, assisted by Nate Edwards and Andrew Pacheco. On the offensive side of the ball, Nick Petermann, Joel Clairmont and Nick Baldini finalized Hamilton’s scoring.
