OTTAWA - Chris Milo kicked five field goals and the Ottawa Redblacks took over first place in the East Division on Friday with a 29-12 win over the visiting Toronto Argonauts.

The Redblacks (6-5-1) won at home for just the second time in six attempts to move one point up on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who play in Saskatchewan Saturday.

The Argonauts (5-8-0) have lost two straight and sit third in the division.

Toronto scored the first offensive touchdown of the game when Drew Willy threw an 11-yard pass to Kevin Elliott at 7:08 of the fourth quarter, but that simply cut the Redblacks lead to 22-12 following a failed two-point conversion attempt.

A one-yard touchdown run from Ottawa quarterback Trevor Harris with two minutes to play gave the Redblacks a 29-12 lead following the conversion.

Milo put the first points on the board with a 19-yard field goal at 7:09 of the first quarter to give the Redblacks a 3-0 lead.
