Game Notes

Game Summary

In a rematch of last week’s game between these teams in Ottawa, the Ottawa Rough Riders visited the Toronto Argonauts at SkyDome in front of 24,089 fans. The game was important for Toronto if they were to keep their playoff hopes alive and would tie them with Ottawa in the Eastern Division if they could manage a victory. At the end of the 1st quarter, Toronto had an early lead as they struck for a FG from K Lance Chomyc from 25 yards away and also had a major score as FB Warren Hudson rumbled in from 1 yard to give Toronto a 10-point lead. In the 2nd quarter though, Ottawa came right back as K Ray Macoritti hit a 29-yarder for a FG, and WR Stephan Jones caught a 46-yard pass from QB Tom Burgess before Toronto regained the lead for a short period as Chomyc booted a 47-yarder before Macoritti countered with a 39-yard effort of his own to make the score even at 13-13 going in to the second half. In the 3rd quarter, Toronto hit for a Chomyc FG from 26 yards away and also scored what would prove to be the game winning point as he sailed a missed FG attempt through the end zone for a single. In the 4th quarter, Ottawa could only manage a FG halfway through the period but couldn’t manage another score as they fell 17-16 to the Argos and back into a tie for third place in the CFL Eastern Division.
