Game Notes

Game Summary

In a game loaded with errors, the Edmonton Eskimos seemed to have benefited the most from the biggest trade in CFL history from last January as they trounced the visiting team 39-8 in front of a crowd of 26,336 at Commonwealth Stadium. Former Argonaut QB Rickey Foggie connected with 3 of his receivers while former Tiger-Cat pivot Damon Allen threw 1 TD pass as the Eskimos took a 17-1 lead to the dressing room at half-time. Allen had found Jim Sandusky to open the scoring at 9:34 of the first frame with an 25-yard toss, while K Sean Fleming booted the convert and then a FG before Lance Chomyc missed on a 35-yard FG attempt in the 2nd quarter to put the Argonauts on the board. Sandusky then caught an 11-yard pass from Foggie at 13:07 of the second for his 2nd major of the night. Foggie again connected in the 3rd, as he threw a 46-yard pass to Henry “Gizmo” Williams and then a 29-yard strike to Eddie Brown (also a member of the trade). It seemed like Toronto came out ready to play the game in the third quarter as Warren Hudson, the former Winnipeg FB, scrambled into the end zone from the 1-yard line to get Toronto’s first TD of the night after a long 72-yard drive up the field led by QB Tracy Ham. But that would be all of their scoring as the Eskies took over, racking up their 3 TDs in a row, making the count 38-8 with no points being score in the final period.
