STAMPEDERS 31 ARGONAUTS 13

Canadian Press
CALGARY - Davaris Daniels caught a pair of touchdown passes from quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell to lead the Calgary Stampeders to a 31-13 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Friday.

Thanks to the victory, the Stampeders became the seventh team in CFL history to win all nine regular season games at home. Calgary also finished 9-0 at McMahon Stadium back in 1993 and 1994.

Rene Paredes kicked three field goals for the Stampeders (15-1-1), who won their 14th straight game and extended their unbeaten streak to 16 in a row.

Andrew Buckley ran for his eighth touchdown of the season _ and third in as many games _ in the second quarter to tie the single-season record for TDs by a Canadian quarterback. Russ Jackson also had eight touchdowns in 1962 for the Ottawa Rough Riders.

Brandon Whitaker caught a touchdown pass from Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray, while Lirim Hajrullahu kicked a pair of field goals for the Argonauts (5-12).

Toronto needed a win over the Stamps and a loss by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to remain in CFL playoff contention. Unfortunately for the Argos, they were eliminated before the first half even ended due to Hamilton's 39-36 overtime win over the Ottawa Redblacks.

Toronto showed some promise early but Calgary does what it always does, picking apart the opposition. What an awesome team the Stamps are this year, Grey Cup winners for sure. Or so they think.
