Game summary

An interception of a Ron Lancaster pass by Hamilton's Al Brenner led to a 16-yard touchdown pass from Chuck Ealey to Dave Fleming. The score stood despite replays clearly showing that Fleming was out of bounds when he caught Ealey's pass. Later in the first quarter Bob Krouse of Hamilton had his first of two blocked punts. Hamilton recovered but had to settle for a 27-yard Ian Sunter field goal. Brenner appeared to have a second interception for a 27-yard touchdown return, but it was called back on a Hamilton offside.

In the second quarter, Saskatchewan tied the game with an 8-yard Lancaster to Tom Campana pass and a 20-yard Jack Abendschan field goal.

With just under two minutes to play in the game and Hamilton on their own 15 yard line Ealey passed to Tony Gabriel who had not been the target of any pass previously in the game. The pass was complete for 27 yards. Ealey immediately went back to Gabriel for 12 yards, and a play later passed to Gabriel for a third time to get to the Saskatchewan 41 yard line with 51 seconds left. Hamilton then ran the clock down while getting close enough for Ian Sunter to kick a 34-yard field goal on the last play of the game to win.
