Coming off two consecutive wins, the Montreal Alouettes traveled into Toronto’s SkyDome looking to make it three in a row. However, waiting for them was an Argonaut team who, after dropping their opening match to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, had notched victories in their last 4 games. The Als jumped out to an early 3-0 lead at 4:51 of the opening quarter when K Terry Baker connected on a 38 yard field goal. They added to their lead when RB Norm Bradford scampered in from 6 yards out. Baker added the convert to make the score 10-1 after one quarter of play. Toronto countered 12 seconds into the second quarter when QB Doug Flutie plunged in from 1 yard away. K Mike Vanderjagt added the convert to cut the deficit to three. Bradford scored his second TD of the game, a 3 yard run at 5:10 of the second frame. The Baker convert returned the Als lead to 10 points. Vanderjagt then connected on his longest FG of the year, a 51 yarder at 7:18 but Montreal answered right back as QB Jimmy Kemp hooked up with RB Michael Soles for a 44 yard TD. The Baker convert made the score 24-10 in favour of the Alouettes. Toronto closed out the first half scoring when Flutie took it in himself for his second major of the game, this one a 1 yard run at 14:50 of the second frame. Montreal went to the locker room at half-time sporting a 24-17 lead. Vanderjagt opened up the third quarter with a 42 yard single off a missed field goal at 4:42 and then added a convert at 12:58 after Flutie had teamed up with WR Paul Masotti for a 6 yard TD giving the Argos a 25-24 lead after three quarters. The Argos clung to that 1 point lead after Baker and Vanderjagt traded singles but increased it to 8 when RB Robert Drummond lugged the ball 75 yards for the major. The Vanderjagt convert increased Toronto’s lead to 9. The Alouettes closed the gap when Bradford scored his third TD of the game, a 2 yard run. However, the two-point convert attempt failed leaving the Alouettes with a 1-point deficit with just 4:37 to play. Toronto put the game out of reach with 25 seconds remaining when RB Mike “Pinball” Clemons carried it in from 4 yards out. Vanderjagt added his fifth convert of the game sending the 20,302 fans home content that their Argos had notched their fifth victory of the season.
