Quick Game Recap
The Toronto Argonauts marched into Tim Hortons Field and walked away with a resounding 41-28 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats during the OK Tire Labour Day Weekend games. Led by Chad Kelly’s 201 yards passing and two touchdowns, the Argos put up an offensive display that the Ticats couldn’t match. On the other side, Taylor Powell put up decent numbers but fell short in the high-scoring affair. It’s an important game when considering the CFL standings and CFL scores.
Toronto Argonauts: A Dominant Performance
Chad Kelly (QB): 15/23, 201 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT
AJ Ouellette (RB): 12 ATT, 79 YDS
Andrew Harris (RB): 4 ATT, 12 YDS, 1 TD
DaVaris Daniels (WR): 3 REC, 57 YDS, 1 TD
Dejon Brissett (WR): 2 REC, 38 YDS, 1 TD
The Argos came out swinging, establishing a rhythm early on. Kelly displayed poise in the pocket and made good use of his wide receivers, especially DaVaris Daniels, who managed a 31-yard catch to help stretch the Argos’ lead.
Adarius Pickett (CB): 9 DT, 1 ST, 1 QS
Wynton McManis (LB): 7 DT
Shawn Oakman (CB): 5 DT, 1 QS
Jamal Peters (CB): 1 DT, 1 INT
The Argos’ defense was no slouch either, with Adarius Pickett leading the way. The cornerbacks and linebackers were instrumental in keeping Hamilton’s offense in check, allowing the Argos to control the pace of the game.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats: Struggles Continue
Taylor Powell (QB): 30/42, 296 YDS, 3 TD, 1 INT
Tim White (WR): 8 REC, 110 YDS, 1 TD
Terry Godwin (WR): 6 REC, 50 YDS, 2 TD
Hamilton’s offense had moments of brilliance but ultimately couldn’t keep up with the Argos. Powell had a productive day through the air, but the lack of a rushing game seriously hampered their efforts.
Stavros Katsantonis (CB): 6 DT, 1 INT
Malik Carney (DE): 4 DT
Richard Leonard (CB): 3 DT
The Hamilton defense had a mixed performance. While Katsantonis managed to snag an interception, the defense couldn’t consistently stop Toronto’s balanced attack.
In the end, the Argos proved too much for the Ticats, putting up 41 points and showcasing their offensive prowess. The Ticats will look to bounce back against the Ottawa REDBLACKS, while the Argos will be feeling confident as they host the Montreal Alouettes in the coming week. A significant game for those keeping an eye on the CFL scores and CFL standings.
The Tiger-Cats will head to TD Place Stadium to face the Ottawa REDBLACKS at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Sept. 8 to kick off Week 14, while the Argos will head home to BMO Field to host the Montreal Alouettes on Sept. 9 at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
