Medlock leads Ticats past Argos in East semi

--

HAMILTON - Justin Medlock gave the Hamilton Tiger-Cats another shot at the Ottawa Redblacks.

Medlock's 46-yard field goal on the final play earned Hamilton an exciting 25-22 East Division semifinal win over the Toronto Argonauts before a sun-drenched Tim Hortons Field sellout of 24,029. The Ticats head to Ottawa next weekend in the conference final after suffering two late-season losses to the Redblacks.

Medlock was more than comfortable having Hamilton's season resting on his shoulders.

"(On Saturday night) I was thinking I wanted the game to come down to me," he said. "As soon as we got past centre field I was like, 'Let's kick.'

"I knew (the kick was good) as soon as I hit it."

The winning boot wasn't nearly as difficult as the one Medlock envisioned.

"They're always a little longer in my head," he said with a smile. "I'm thinking I'm going to set a career high."

Medlock nearly re-wrote the CFL record book in the first half. His 55-yard field goal to open the scoring was one yard short of the league playoff record.

Medlock's heroics came after Toronto's Swayze Waters hit a 42-yard field goal with 49 seconds left to make it 22-22. However, Waters missed from 39 and 40 yards earlier in the quarter.

Medlock's kick with a 23 kilometre-an-hour wind at his back capped a smart 40-yard drive engineered by Hamilton quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, starting his first CFL playoff game. The march was helped by a roughing-the-passer penalty against Toronto's Martin Wright, who appeared to be blocked into Masoli.

"You guys know I saw," Toronto head coach Scott Milanovich said. "I'm not going to get fined."

Still, Milanovich felt good having the game come down to Waters, the CFL's 2014 top special-teams player who battled injuries this year.

"Swayze has been a money player for us ever since he's been here," Milanovich said. "Any time I can send him out there I feel good about it.

"The wind was tough, he just pulled it."

Masoli finished 12-of-18 passing for 141 yards with a TD and interception. He also ran for 58 yards on 12 carries, his one-yard touchdown scamper at 6:14 giving Hamilton a 22-19 advantage.

The playoff win was heady indeed for Masoli, who began the season fourth on Hamilton's depth chart and spent time on the practice roster. He was the club's fourth different starter this year and was under centre with incumbent Zach Collaros (knee) and backup Jeff Mathews (concussion) out.

Masoli left the game for two series in the third. Upon his return, he completed his final seven pass attempts for 115 yards and a TD while also engineering the game-winning drive.

"We just wanted to get Masoli out of the game . . . and talk through what we were going to do moving forward, just settle him down a bit," said Hamilton head coach/GM Kent Austin. …
