Game Notes

Game Summary

The Argonauts opened up the 1998 home season having never lost a home opener since Head Coach Don Matthews took over the team in 1996. K Noel Prefontaine’s 20-yard FG at 7:22 accounted for the all of the first quarter scoring. He followed this up in the second quarter with a 16-yard FG at 10:37 pacing the Boatmen to a 6-0 lead. RB Kato Hitson increased Toronto’s lead to 12 when he corralled a Tony Martino punt and returned it 88 yards for the major score 12:20. Prefonataine’s convert was good and the Argonauts were out in front by a 13-0 score. Calgary got on the board late in the second stanza when QB Jeff Garcia found RB Kelvin Anderson in the end zone for the major score at 14:02. K Mark McLoughlin’s convert cut the Boatmen’s lead to 13-7 as the teams headed into the locker-room for halftime. Prefontaine’s 15-yard FG at 4:14 of the third quarter increased Toronto’s lead to 16-7 but Calgary countered right back with Anderson’s second receiving TD of the match at 7:53. McLoughlin’s convert was good and the Stamps trailed by just 2. A McLoughlin single at 4:31 of the final quarter brought Calgary to within 1-point of Toronto. Prefontaine gave Toronto a 4-point cushion at 7:32 of the final frame when his 42-yard FG was good. For the second time in as many games, however, Calgary’s Jeff Garcia pulled out some last minute heroics finding WR Travis Moore for a 19-yard receiving TD at 13:30. K Tony Martino kicked the convert giving Calgary a 3-point lead, a lead that they would not relinquish. The 22-19 Stamps victory ran their record to a perfect 2-0 and also brought an end to Toronto’s 17-game home winning streak that was tied for third for the CFL’s All-time League records.
