REGINA -- Rey Williams promised Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach Kent Austin a big game. http:/// . Sunday he delivered, but he was hardly alone. Williams had two of the Roughriders five sacks, Rob Bagg caught two touchdowns, and Darian Durant threw four TDs on 347 yards passing as Saskatchewan spoiled Austins return to Regina with a 37-0 win over the Ticats. "Any time you play your old team and you dont leave on the best of terms you want to go there and you want to embarrass them, and we were able to do that tonight," said Williams, who was cut by the Tiger-Cats in February after two seasons in Hamilton. Saskatchewan (4-0) remains the only undefeated team in the CFL while the Ticats (1-3) dropped into a three-way tie for last in the East Division. The game was Austins first in Saskatchewan since coaching the Riders to the 2007 Grey Cup. Austin left the Roughriders after the championship win and spent five years in the U.S. college ranks before signing on as Hamiltons head coach and general manager in December. "Weve got to look at our lineup," he said. "Like I told the coaches, its going to start with us. Weve got to figure out what our guys can do well and only ask them to do that because theres some things we just arent good enough to do." Williams returned to the Roughriders, with whom he played his first three CFL seasons, after the Ticats released him and, in the lead-up to Sundays game, pledged to make Austin look bad. He delivered by sacking Burris on Hamiltons first drive of the third and fourth quarters, putting an exclamation point on a sparkling day for the Riders defence, which also forced three first-half turnovers. "They have problems over there and next week when they see us were going to try to do the same thing," said Williams, whose team will travel to Hamilton for a rematch in Week 5 on July 27. The game was big in other ways for Saskatchewan as well. Big as in 310-pound offensive lineman Dan Clark, who lined up as a tight end and caught the first touchdown of his career on an eight-yard pass from Durant to end the third quarter. "Its an unbelievable experience," said Clark, who was mauled by his teammates after the catch and gave the ball to his father after the game. "I never thought in 10 years of football that Id be catching the ball in the end zone in the CFL." The Riders also overcame a big mental hurdle, after last years team also opened 3-0 only to drop five straight games en route to an 8-10 finish. Saskatchewan -- ranked seventh in yards allowed entering Sundays game -- held the Ticats to 161 yards of net offence, forced them to punt 11 times and also got sacks from Craig Butler, Jermaine McElveen and Ricky Foley. "On defence what we talked about is being a championship defence and making sure teams dont score," said Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin. "We went back and we thought we had some poor fourth quarters over the last couple of weeks. The guys did a good job of playing quarter-by-quarter. They did a great job and they had great focus ... and it just turned out being no points." With the Roughriders facing a north wind in the first quarter that gusted to over 50 km/h throughout the game, the defence came up with a steady stream of big plays before Durant found his groove. The returning Eddie Russ forced the ball from the hands of Ticats receiver Greg Ellingson in the first quarter to give Saskatchewan the ball near midfield, and made a shoestring tackle on Samuel Giguere on Hamiltons next possession to force a third-and-one attempt that came up short. Chris Milo got Saskatchewan on the board with his first of three field goals to start the second quarter and the Riders got the ball right back when Butler came up with an end zone interception on a Henry Burris pass intended for Ellingson. Saskatchewan took a 16-0 lead into halftime after a 28-yard touchdown pass from Durant to Bagg and two more field goals from Milo, including a career-best 47-yarder with the wind at his back. The last gasp of wind in the Ticats sails was snuffed out by a pass interference call near the end of the third quarter that negated a 30-plus yard interception return by Rico Murray. Geroy Simon made his Roughriders debut and kept his streak of consecutive games with a reception alive on a six-yard catch in the first quarter. He added a 32-yard grab in the third to set up Clarks TD, and now has catches in 174 straight games. The Riders padded their lead in the fourth quarter with a 60-yard TD reception by Bagg and a 28-yard touchdown pass to Weston Dressler. Bagg finished with a game-high 125 yards on five catches. Durant completed 20 of 32 passes for 347 yards with no interceptions. Burris went 16-for-27 for 158 yards before giving way to Dan LeFevour with five minutes to play. LeFevour finished 3-for-4 with 21 yards. NOTES: Saskatchewan scratched DB Macho Harris, LB Abraham Kromah, DB Terrell Maze and SB Eron Riley. Hamilton scratches included former Roughriders Luca Congi and James Patrick, as well as defensive end Brandon Boudreaux and offensive lineman Cody Husband. . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. . Rousey will put her perfect 8-0 record and hardware on the line against another undefeated fighter, 7-0 Sara McMann in the main event of UFC 170, which will be held at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas Nevada on February 22nd. . Hamelin, who triumphed in the 500 on Saturday, edged out Victor An of Russia by 0.021 seconds to maintain his lead in the World Cup standings. Russias Vladimir Grigorev was third. In the relay, Canada took control six laps from the finish line to beat Russia and the Netherlands.Saturdays Champions Cup decider in Lyon will be the sixth time the final has been contested between English and French teams. England currently lead the way with three victories and two of those came on French soil, Bath in 1998 and Leicester in 2001.Saracens were beaten in the last Anglo-French final in 2014 when Toulon overpowered them in Cardiff. On Saturday they face Racing 92, the team that ended Toulons three-year reign as champions of Europe. Ahead of this eagerly-awaited contest, lets look back at the five previous finals between English and French teams.1997: Brive 28-9 Leicester Sebastien Carrat beats Austin Healey to score his second and Brives fourth try Leicester were outscored by four tries to nil as Brive blew them away in the closing stages at Cardiff Arms Park.The French side raced into an 8-0 lead after only five minutes through a Christophe Lamaison penalty and Sebastien Viars try, but two first-half penalties from John Liley kept Leicester in contention.Liley added another penalty to give the Tigers the lead on 54 minutes but Brive then shifted up a gear and the pressure finally told.Leicester lost Dean Richards to injury and tries from Brive wings Gerald Fabre and Sebastien Carrat (2) ensured back-to-back victories for French teams in the fledgling tournament.1998: Bath 19-18 Brive In front of a partisan crowd, Bath became the first team outside of France to win the Heineken Cup Bath became the first non-French side to win the European Cup when they overturned a 15-6 half-time deficit against the defending champions in Bordeaux.The West Country team produced a stunning final quarter which was kick-started by Jeremy Guscott sending John Callard over for the games only try. Road to the Champions Cup final How Racing 92 and Saracens reached this seasons decider Full-back Callard scored all of Baths points and he kicked an injury-time penalty to give his side the lead for the first time after the touch judge spotted a late tackle on Adedayo Adebayo by Brive lock Yvan Manhes.There was further late drama, with Brive awarded an 82nd-minute penalty inside Christophe Lamaisons range after Bath collapsed a maul, but he was unable to add to his 15 first-half points.Lisandro Arbizu also saw a drop-goal attempt drift narrowly wide as Bath held on for the narrowest of victories.2001: Leicester 34-30 Stade Francais Leicester beat Stade Francais 34-30 in the 2000/2001 Heineken Cup. Leon Lloyds 80th-minute try snatched a thrilling victory for Leicester as they stunned Stade at the Parc des Princes to complete a Premiership and European double.Stade looked on course for victory in their home city thanks to an incredible 30-points tally from the boot of Diego Dominguez, but the Tigers scored three second-half tries to deny the French team.Leicester trailed 15-9 at the interval but Lloyd scored the games opening try just 50 seconds after the restart. Leon Lloyd scores the match-winning try Neil Back also crossed the whitewash while Dominguez kept his side in contention with two 50-metre penalties.Leicester suurvived the sin-binning of skipper Martin Johnson for punching but they fell behind with three minutes remaining when Italy fly-half Dominguez slotted a drop goal. However, the Tigers would have the final say as Lloyd crossed in the right corner following a superb break by man of the match Austin Healy, and they withstood a late barrage to clinch the first of back-to-back European Cups.2004: Wasps 27-20 Toulouse Rob Howleys last-minute try clinched a first European Cup for Wasps Clement Poitrenaud called time on a fantastic career last week but hes probably still having nightmares about the final minute of the 2004 decider at Twickenham.Wasps led a thrilling contest for large spells but their French opponents drew level with just three minutes remaining as replacement Jean-Baptiste Elissalde slotted his third unanswered penalty.Both teams were guilty of some abject kicking during a tense finish and a poor drop out from Frederic Michalak bounced into Rob Howleys arms. Howley celebrates with the Heineken Cup The Wales scrum-half booted the ball up the wing and gave chase but Poitrenaud was well positioned to deal with the danger.However, the Toulouse full-back tried to let the ball go dead, and as he waited for it to bounce into the in-goal area, Howley beat him to the punch and touched the ball down to snatch the most dramatic of victories.The day prior to that I was kicking with Shaun Edwards and he told me to be prepared for a huge kicking game, and to never kick and hope, said Howley.Well the kick and hope actually won us the cup final. He told me afterwards, never listen to me again!2014: Toulon 23-6 Saracens Toulon beat Saracens in the last ever Heineken Cup final Jonny Wilkinsons final game on British soil was a memorable one as Toulon comfortably retained the European Cup with a crushing victory over Saracens at the Millennium Stadium.The World Cup winner kicked 13 points as tries in either half from Matt Giteau and Juan Smith ensured the French heavyweights became only the third team to successfully defend their crown.Having hammered Clermont in the semi-finals, Saracens opened the scoring with an Owen Farrell penalty, but they were punished after failing to capitalise on the sin-binning of Juan Fernandez Lobbe.Instead, Toulon scored the opening try while down to 14 men, Wallabies centre Giteau crossing on the half-hour, and a drop goal from Wilkinson gave them a 10-3 lead at the interval. Jonny Wilkinson and Paul OConnell join our coverage of Saturdays Champions Cup final Saracens began the second half like they did the first as Farrell slotted another penalty, but that was cancelled out by Wilkinson and Toulon struck a decisive blow on the hour.Mathieu Bastareaud broke from inside his own half and Smith and Lobbe combined to send the Springbok over in the corner.Wilkinson landed the conversion to finish with a 100 per cent record off the tee.Watch Racing 92 v Saracens live on Sky Sports 2 HD on Saturday from 3.45pm. Catch the match for £6.99 with a NOW TV day pass Also See: Road to the Champions Cup final Champions Cup final on Sky Farrell keen to emulate Carter Rugby on Sky Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Youth NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Throwback Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Gear Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale NFL T-shirts Discount Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
