CFL Game Summary - Saskatchewan at Toronto
(Monday, October 8th)
Final Score: Saskatchewan 36, Toronto 10
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Darian Durant completed 21-of-29 passes for 276
yards and a touchdown to lead the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a 36-10 rout
of the Toronto Argonauts at Rogers Centre.
Kory Sheets rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown and Weston Dressler caught
five passes for 97 yards, including a 78-yard touchdown, for the Roughriders
(8-6), who have won five of their last six contests.
"It was an overall team win. The defense played well, we did what we wanted to
do offensively and the special teams did what they did all year long," Durant
Jarious Jackson was 16-for-31 passing for 162 yards and a touchdown, but was
also picked off once. Gerald Riggs ran for 56 yards on 10 carries and Andre
Durie had three catches for 48 yards for the Argonauts (7-7), who have dropped
three of their last four overall.
"They just didn't let us do the things to move the chains and pick up first
downs," Jackson said. "They wouldn't let us keep the football and do the
things we needed to do to win the game."
Sandro DeAngelis nailed a 14-yard field goal to put the Roughriders on top 3-0
early in the first quarter.
Saskatchewan then forced a two-and-out on the ensuing possession and needed
six plays to find the end zone as Drew Willy bulled his way across the goal
line from one yard out.
Swayze Waters got the Argonauts on the board with a 47-yard field goal with
just over four minutes left in the first quarter.
DeAngelis put the Roughriders up 13-3 after splitting the uprights from 31
yards out, but Toronto answered right back as Jackson connected with Riggs for
a 5-yard touchdown pass to pull within 13-10.
DeAngelis booted a pair of field goals in the final 1:10 of the first half,
one from 12 yards and one from 48 yards out, to give Saskatchewan a 19-10 lead
at the break.
The Roughriders dominated the third quarter, adding 17 points and effectively
putting the game out of reach.
DeAngelis nailed a 31-yarder after a four-play drive stalled at the Toronto
Sheets then broke a 48-yard run, the longest of the season for Saskatchewan,
and Durant hooked up with Dressler for a 78-yard catch-and-run, also a season-
long for the Riders, to cap the scoring.
Durant is 5-0 in his last five starts and hasn't thrown an interception over
that stretch ... The Riders hold a 45-35-1 advantage in the all-time series
with Toronto ... Three of the Argos' four remaining games are at home.
