TICATS SWEEP ARGOS, 36-25
That gave Hamilton (6-5) a sweep of the Labour Day series following a 42-28 win at Tim Hortons Field on Monday. The Ticats not only clinched the season series with Toronto but also moved into a first-place tie with the Ottawa Redblacks in the East Division.
Ottawa and Hamilton will play twice next month.
Toronto made it interesting with McLeod Bethel-Thompson's 31-yard TD pass to S.J. Green at 12:56 of the fourth. But the two failed to connect on the two-point convert, leaving Hamilton ahead 36-25.
The Argos (3-8) suffered their third straight loss and saw their playoff hopes go on life support. Toronto remains tied for third in the East with Montreal but both teams entered action Saturday two wins behind the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (5-6) in the battle for East Division's final playoff spot.
Winnipeg would cross over to the East if the season ended on Saturday.
