Game Notes

Game Summary

The Toronto Argonauts could not prevent the strong Eskimo defence from attacking their trio of quarterbacks last Wednesday as a record 13 sacks were counted in a 45-14 loss at SkyDome before a crowd of 20,563. It was slow going as Edmonton K Sean Fleming kicked an 11-yard FG on the first drive of the game after Mike “Pinball” Clemons fumbled the opening kickoff. The next points were not until eight minutes later when QB Damon Allen ran in from the 1-yard line to cap off a 36-yard drive for the only other scoring of the quarter. Toronto finally got on the board at 1:53 of the second when Warren Hudson charged in from 1 yard out to put his team within 3 points but the Eskimos came right back as Fleming got a single off a missed 53-yard FG attempt and Michael Soles carried the ball for a 9-yard major to make the count 18-7 at intermission time. Toronto came out flying as Clemons made up for his first punt return goof by returning a punt 79 yards for the score less than 2 minutes into the 3rd quarter (converted by K Lance Chomyc), but that would be all the scoring for the hometown team as a new CFL record for most sacks versus one team was set. Fleming booted another 2 FGs (46 and 34 yards out) and Allen passed for 3 TDs in the final frame, connecting with Eddie Brown on all three (11, 22 and 45 yards) to put the game way out of reach for the Argonauts. Toronto QB Tracy Ham, who was sacked 7 times in the first half, started for the game, but was replaced in the third period by Reggie Slack, who was then replaced after he completed 4-of-9 passes for 81 yards and 1 interception, by Bret Johnson, who could not make either of his 2 passes, having one of them picked off along the way.
