The Argos posted their ninth victory of the season last Sunday, a 66-25 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The 66 points were the third highest single game point total in Club history. In doing so, head coach, Don Matthews tied Frank Clair’s benchmark for regular season victories. The first quarter scoring featured two touchdowns from WR Derrell Mitchell, from 38 and 19 yards. In addition, RB Robert Drummond scored his first of what was to be three TDs, a 75-yard receiving major from QB Doug Flutie. The score after one period of play read, Toronto 21, Winnipeg 0. The second quarter scoring belonged to Winnipeg as K Troy Westwood got them on the board at 8:14 with a 19-yard FG. RB Ronald Williams added a touchdown at 13:28 when he took it into the end zone from 3 yards out. The Westwood convert rounded out the first-half scoring with Toronto on top by a 21-10 margin. Vanderjagt opened up the second half scoring with a 28-yard FG. Drummond’s second TD of the game, a 26-yard pass from Flutie, followed this. At 10:57, OL Jeremy O’Day got into the action lining up as an eligible end, he snuck in behind the Winnipeg defenders and corralled a 5-yard pass from Flutie. Drummond then closed out the third quarter scoring with his third receiving TD of the game, a 12-yard effort making the score 45‐10 in favour of the Boatmen. Winnipeg’s Ronald Williams scored his second TD of the game at 3:51 of the final stanza, a 1-yard run. The Argos responded at 7:11 when QB Andre Ware, who was in to replace Flutie, hooked up with WR Andre Kirwan for a 27-yard TD pass. Ware then scored his first TD of the year at 12:16 scampering in from 39 yards out. Winnipeg WR Milt Stegall teamed up with QB Chris Vargas for a 14-yard TD strike at 13:28 but the Argonaut machine countered right back when DB Adrion Smith stepped in front of a Vargas pass and took it back 37 yards for the major score. Vanderjagt’s convert rounded out the games scoring mercifully for the Bombers. The final from Winnipeg Stadium read, Toronto 66 and Winnipeg 25.
