ARGONAUTS 38 REDBLACKS 35

OTTAWA - Chad Owens made a one-handed catch in the end zone with 25 seconds left to play to give the Toronto Argonauts a key 38-35 win over the Ottawa Redblacks on Tuesday night.

Trevor Harris passed for five touchdowns - including Owens's late 10-yard strike - and 397 yards as Toronto improved to 8-5.

The Argonauts have won two straight and are now tied for first in the division with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Henry Burris threw two TDs and 250 yards for the Redblacks (8-6).

Toronto was officially the home team for the crucial CFL East matchup even though the game was held in Ottawa.

The Argonauts could not play at home because Rogers Centre was being used by the Toronto Blue Jays who are in Major League Baseball's playoffs for the first time since 1993.

Chad Owens has no business making that catch. Doesn't he know there's no talent in the CFL. We hear it all the time.

A lot of these type of football games are a good thing for the CFL and an indication that the brains behind the rule changes made this year were onto something.

The Argonauts have a 3-5 record against teams not called the Riders or Redblacks. Not sure what that means ...

Did no one else but me see that Chad Owens was offside on that catch, not taking away from the catch because it was a beauty. But he was at least a yard offside, I rewound it on the TV and it was pretty clear.
