The Argonauts entered the game looking to set a new team mark for most consecutive wins. They had currently strung together 8 wins which tied a long standing team mark set back in 1934-35. This week’s opposition were the improving Saskatchewan Roughriders who were coming off an impressive 41-23 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Argos got on the scoreboard first when K Mike Vanderjagt was good from 44 yards away. This lead was short lived as the Roughriders’ QB Kevin Mason hooked up with WR Donald Narcisse for a 13 yard TD. K Frank Jagas would add the convert to put them up by 4 after one quarter. The ’Riders added to that lead 8:00 into the second quarter with a Jagas field goal before the Argonauts tied the game when QB Doug Flutie carried it in from 6 yards out. The Vanderjagt convert sent the teams into the locker room at half time tied at 10. Reserve Argonaut SB Duane Dmytryshyn put the Boatmen back in front at 0:58 of the third quarter when he ran under a 10 yard Doug Flutie pass. Jagas closed out the third quarter scoring with a 37 yard field goal to make the score at the end of three quarters, Toronto 17, Saskatchewan 13. This, however, was as close as the ’Riders would get as the Argonauts went on to add 14 fourth quarter points compliments of another Dmytryshyn TD, two Vanderjagt field goals, a single and a convert making the final 31-13 for Toronto.
