Glenn leads Hamilton past Toronto
Hamilton, ON (Sports Network) - Kevin Glenn threw for 273 yards and two scores on 20-of-36 completions, leading Hamilton to a 34-15 victory over Toronto in the teams' annual Labor Day battle.
Dave Stala and DeAndra' Cobb each caught a touchdown pass, while Arland Bruce III had six catches for 115 yards for the Tiger-Cats (5-4), who snapped a two- game slide.
Cobb, who had three catches for 38 yards, also ran 12 times for 47 yards for Hamilton, while Nick Setta made 4-of-5 field goal attempts.
Cody Pickett completed 25-of-40 passes for 217 yards and an interception for the Argonauts (2-7), whose losing streak reached five games. Having gone 0-9 in the last half of the 2008 season, they are just 2-16 in their last 18 games.
Jamal Robertson ran nine times for 63 yards and Toronto's only touchdown. He also had nine catches for 46 yards.
The teams traded touchdowns in the first quarter, as Toronto went ahead with a three-yard scoring run from Robertson. He had run for 19 and 14 yards on the two plays prior to reaching the end zone a little more than nine minutes left in the stanza.
But Hamilton tied the game with a 14-yard TD pass from Glenn to Stala.
Justin Medlock drilled a 47-yard field goal for the Argos with a little over six minutes left in the half, but the Tiger-Cats went into the intermission after scoring three times before the break.
After Hamilton started a drive with 5:56 left, Glenn passed the Tiger-Cats downfield. He connected with Bruce for 44 yards before finding Cobb for 23 into the end zone, giving Hamilton a 14-10 lead.
Then with about a minute left, Setta connected on a 20-yard field goal, and his single with seconds remaining made it an 18-10 game at halftime.
Setta's 10-yard field goal provided the opening points of the third quarter, though Medlock countered with a 15-yarder with just under seven minutes to go.
Hamilton found the end zone again late in the quarter, as Adam Tafralis' one- yard dash capped a drive that saw Glenn again find Bruce for 44 yards. Toronto challenged a ruling on that play that Bruce was down by contact, though the ruling was upheld.
Setta's conversion made it a 28-13 game going to the fourth, and the Tiger- Cats cruised from there. Setta converted field goal attempts from 29 and 13 yards out, while Toronto got only a pair of singles.
