REDBLACKS FINISH OFF ARGONAUTS 24-9
Backup quarterback Dominique Davis threw for 220 yards and a touchdown as Ottawa downed the Toronto Argonauts 24-9 on Friday in the last regular-season game for both squads.
It was a game where neither team had anything to play for in the standings. The Argonauts (4-14) will finish last in the East Division while the Redblacks (11-7) already had first place in the division and a bye to the East Final locked up following their win over Hamilton last week. Ottawa has won three in a row.
In the interest of staying healthy ahead of the East Final in two weeks, the Redblacks sat several starters including quarterback Trevor Harris, Brad Sinopoli, who leads the league with 116 receptions, and William Powell along with his league-leading 1,362 rushing yards.
Davis took over the QB duties for Harris to start the game while Danny Collins went in for the second half.
The Redblacks got a 10-yard field goal from Lewis Ward on the opening drive of the game and a 57-yard single from punter Richie Leoni 65 seconds into the second quarter.
