According to the Canada football chat website, the University of Calgary Dinos advanced to their sixth consecutive Hardy Cup final on Saturday after an amazing comeback in the Canada West Conference semi-final at McMahon Stadium.
After trailing 17-0 in the first quarter, the Dinos scored 18 consecutive first half points en route to a 42-28 victory over the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.
The loss was a huge blow to the Thunderbirds program because according to Shaw Television, the Thunderbirds' administration is considering dropping their football and hockey programs.
Saturday's game was a huge contest for Dinos' running back Mercer Timmis of Burlington, Ontario. Timmis had 164 yards rushing and two touchdowns, along with four receptions for 44 yards.
The Dinos' offensive line also deserved credit for creating huge holes for Timmis to run through.
The Dinos next play the University of Manitoba Bisons for the Hardy Cup Saturday at McMahon Stadium. The Bisons defeated the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 37-36 in the other semi-final, Friday evening in Winnipeg.
For the Dinos to advance to the Mitchell Bowl, they will need to stop Bisons' quarterback Jordan Yantz, who had 371 yards passing and 98 yards rushing in Manitoba's playoff win.
