ARGOS OUTLAST TICATS 43-35 IN OT
Ray found Posey on a 13-yard TD strike on Toronto's opening overtime possession before James Wilder Jr. ran in the two-point convert. Jeremiah Masoli tried to pull Hamilton even on a third-down pass to Jalen Saunders in the Argos' endzone but the pass fell incomplete.
Toronto forced overtime on Ray's 25-yard TD strike to Posey with 33 seconds remaining in regulation. Then Wilder Jr. ran in for the two-point convert to make it 35-35 after the Argos fell behind 35-21.
Toronto (7-7) earned its third straight victory and first in eight attempts at Tim Hortons Field. The Argos moved three points ahead of the second-place Ottawa Redblacks (5-9-1) in the East Division standings and also clinched the season series with Hamilton (3-10).
The Ticats suffered their second loss in five games despite an outstanding effort from C.J. Gable. He ran for 157 yard and two TDs before a Tim Hortons Field gathering of 24,067.
Interim Hamilton coach June Jones took a calculated risk putting Gable into the lineup off the injured list. Gable replaced Alex Green, who ran for 140 yards in last weekend's 24-23 road win over the B.C. Lions.
