With little more than pride on the line Friday night, the Toronto Argonauts put together an impressive offensive show in front of 23,000 fans on National Unity Night at the SkyDome. Argo QB Kent Austin set up the first score with a 17 yard pass to Rob Crifo. Terry Baker kicked the convert. Calgary narrowed the Toronto lead early in the second quarter with a 30 yard Mark McLoughlin field goal. The Argonauts countered with a 31 yard field goal by Baker to regain their 7 point lead. Calgary fought back again with McLoughlin sending field goals through from 39 and 38 yards. Toronto took a slim 10 to 9 lead into the locker room at the half. Calgary got their first lead of the game early in the second half when QB Shawn Moore hooked up with Pee Wee Smith for a 7 yard touchdown. McLoughlin kicked the convert. Toronto marched right back up the field on the next series of plays. Mike “Pinball” Clemons carried the ball in from the 1-yard line to cap the drive. Baker’s convert regained the 1 point Toronto lead. Baker kicked a field goal from 49 yards out before the end of the quarter the giving Toronto a four point lead. Baker missed a 29 yard field goal attempt but scored the single for the Argos early in the fourth quarter. Calgary got another passing TD when Moore threw a 14 yard pass to Vince Danielsen. A two-point convert attempt from Moore to Sapunjis went incomplete. Down by 1, the Argonauts played a brilliant final five minutes. Baker hit a 29 yard field goal for the Argos to regain the lead. Paul Masotti capped a spectacular night with a 45 yard touchdown reception from Austin. Baker’s convert put Toronto ahead by 9. The Argo’s Masotti played brilliantly catching 10 passes for 244 yards ending a dismal season for Toronto on a positive note.
