Hamilton still winless in Canadian Football League

Kerry Joseph threw a pair of touchdown passes, Yo Murphy ran for one, and the Ottawa Renegades rolled past the winless Hamilton Tiger Cats, 28-12, on Saturday.

Ottawa (4-3) took a 1-0 lead in the first quarter with a 30-yard single by Mark Irvin, but Hamilton quickly responded with a 34-yard field goal by Jamie Boreham with 3:08 left in the first quarter.
The Renegades put up a 41-yard single early in the second period to pull within a point, but late in the quarter, the Ti-Cats (0-6) extended their lead to 5-2 with a safety when Irvin conceded in the end zone.
Ottawa eventually tied it as the first half expired when Irvin came through with a 22-yard field goal.
Joseph connected with Cory Hathaway for a seven-yard touchdown with 10:43 left in the third quarter to put the Renegades ahead 12-5.
Just over four minutes later, Joseph added to the lead as he found Jason Armstead for a huge 69-yard TD that made it a 14-point contest.
Hamilton closed the gap to 19-12 on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Brady to Julian Radlein with 3:56 left in the third.
Ottawa, though, got a safety in the fourth quarter when Boreham conceded in end zone, making it 21-12 and Murphy put another TD on the board for the Renegades with a 24-yard run with 8:34 remaining.
