CFL Semifinals - 2018/19
November 08, 2018
The final week of the regular season is a time where there can be a few surprise endings with playoff teams resting guys. But with that in mind, the outcomes of Week 21’s games were about what they were expected to be.
Calgary had been the dominant team for the bulk of the season. But over the last few weeks, they have struggled. You wouldn’t have known that as they got out to a 25-0 lead over the BC Lions. BC started sitting guys in the second half with the game out of reach making it easy for Calgary to finally lock up the West division with a 26-9 win.
BC didn’t need to win, but they can’t be happy with how much their offence struggled in the first half.
Ottawa was expected to roll over Toronto even though the Redblacks were sitting a lot of guys. Sure enough—they did. The Argos never really posed a threat as Ottawa closed out the season with a 24-9 win.
Winnipeg became the hottest team in the league the last few weeks. But with guys sitting out, the Eskimos were able to close out their season with a win over the Blue Bombers, 33-24.
Like the other playoff teams, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats rested a lot of guys. But, also like the rest, they hoped to end their regular season with a win. However, Montreal had a different outcome in mind and took the win, 30-28.
With the end of the regular season, the real fun can begin starting with the division semifinal round. Who has what it takes to make it to the next round? Read on to see who we think will make it.
