TORONTO —Kory Sheets and Weston Dressler scored third-quarter touchdowns to
power the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a decisive 36-10 win over the Toronto
Argonauts on Monday. Michael Crabtree Super Bowl Jersey . Sheetss
season-high 48-yard TD run at 9:29 put Saskatchewan ahead 29-10 and brought
“Lets Go Riders,” chants from the Saskatchewan faithful within the Rogers Centre
gathering of 25,176. Sheets also surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing plateau on the
play. Darian Durant cemented the win at 11:25 with a 78-yard TD strike to
Dressler, the Rider slotbacks league-leading 10th touchdown catch this season.
After Dressler scored, the Saskatchewan fans erupted out into a “Lets Go
Riders,” chant again with their club comfortably ahead 36-10. Saskatchewan (8-6)
earned its fifth win in six games to move into a second-place tie with Calgary
in the West Division. Durant finished 21-of-29 passing for 276 yards and a TD to
improve to 6-2 versus Toronto and 3-1 at Rogers Centre. Saskatchewan faces the
fourth-place Edmonton Eskimos (6-8) on Saturday in an important West Division
showdown. Starter Jarious Jackson fell to 1-1 replacing injured Argos starter
Ricky Ray (knee) after leading the squad past Winnipeg 29-10 on Sept. 29.
Jackson finished 16-of-31 passing for 162 yards with a TD and interception
before giving way to rookie Trevor Harris in the fourth. Toronto (7-7) was also
minus running back Chad Kackert (ribs), with rookie Gerald Riggs Jr. starting in
his place. Their absence definitely showed as Torontos offence was unable to
muster any sort of consistency, forcing the defence to spend too much time on
the field. It marked the third time this year the Argos have scored 10 or less
points in a game. Despite that, Toronto remains in contention for top spot in
the East Division. On Sunday, Toronto hosts Montreal (8-6)—which lost 27-22
to Winnipeg on Monday—in a crucial contest for both teams. Not only will the
winner assume first place but also win the season series 2-1, which is important
because in the event of a tie, the first tie-breaker is head-to-head record.
Drew Willy had Saskatchewans other touchdown. Sandro DeAngelis booted three
converts and five field goals. Riggs Jr. scored Torontos touchdown. Swayze
Waters kicked a convert and field goal. DeAngelis booted field goal of 12 and 48
yards in the final minute of the opening half to stake Saskatchewan to a 19-10
advantage, thanks in large part a stout Argos defence. Saskatchewans Brandon
West opened the game with an 81-yard kickoff return to the Toronto 23-yard line.
The Riders settled for a field goal but blew a glorious scoring chance when
Eddie Russ dropped a certain pick-six on the Argos first offensive play. Willy
scored on a one-yard TD run at 6:00 of the first, which was set up by Taj Smiths
56-yard catch to the Toronto three-yard line. On the Argos second possession,
Jacksons pass went through Dontrelle Inmans hands to Mike Bradwell, who made the
nine-yard catch. But Riggs was ruled to have fumbled following a seven-yard
gain, which Saskatchewans Tyron Brackenridge recovered. The Argos managed just
19 net yards offensively in the first yet Riggss five-yard TD catch at 4:39 of
the second pulled them to within 13-10 before being outscored 23-0 from that
point on. NOTES —Receiver Brooks Foster, defensive back Tristan Jackson,
offensive lineman Alex Krausnick-Groh and defensive lineman Keith Shologan didnt
dress for Saskatchewan. Cornerback Ahmad Carroll, receiver Ken-Yon Rambo,
defensive lineman Derrick Summers and offensive lineman Joel Reinders were
Torontos scratches. For Carroll, a former NFL first-round draft pick, it marks
the second straight game he was a healthy scratch. . . . With Waters (thumb)
unable to handle third-down snaps, backup linebacker Kyle Jones punted. He
handled field goals and punts while at Bishops. DeAngelis also assumed punting
duties for the Riders after incumbent Chris Milo suffered an apparent ankle
injury in the first half. . . . Brad Smith, the former Argos receiver who is now
starring in “The Bachelor Canada,” performed the ceremonial opening kickoff. . .
. Willy played at Rogers Centre in the 09 International Bowl with the University
of Buffalo, which lost 38-20 to UConn. Aldon Smith Super Bowl Jersey . The San
Antonio Spurs announced Wednesday that they had re-signed Duncan, bringing back
the 36-year-old forward for at least a 16th season. Isaac Sopoaga Jersey . They wont have the
same opportunity with Robert Griffin III. General manager Ryan Grigson said
Monday the Colts plan to bring Luck to Indianapolis for an individual workout
during the next couple of weeks. http://www.the49erssuperbowlgear.com/colin-kaepernick-jersey/
. —The San Francisco 49ers have signed cornerback Darcel McBath to a one-year
contract. Tom Rathman Jersey . “Chelios leg wasnt doing
very good,” coach Mike Babcock said at the teams morning skate. Babcock said
then that Chelios, scoreless in 14 playoff games, would be a game-time decision.
Frank Gore Jersey . The Canadian Football
League and its member teams are committed to raising awareness and funds to
tackle womens cancers and making a positive difference in communities across the
country. DENVER —Drew Pomeranz tossed five scoreless innings for his first win
in more than two months and the Colorado Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 6-0 on a
rainy Wednesday night. The game was delayed by rain in the seventh inning for 1
hour, 24 minutes. Charlie Blackmon homered and Chris Nelson had two hits and two
RBIs in the Rockies third straight win. Dave Sappelt had two hits for Chicago,
which is winless in 15 road games against NL West opponents. Pomeranz (2-9) had
been 0-6 with a 6.84 ERA since the All-Star break and had lasted past the fourth
inning just once in his last 10 starts. Pomeranz allowed three hits in his first
win since July 6. Alex White and Rob Scahill combined for four innings of
two-hit ball to finish the shutout. He got plenty of support from Colorados
bats, which reached double-digits in hits for the seventh straight game. Every
starter reached base at least once as the Rockies piled up 10 hits. The Rockies
scored twice in the first off Jason Berken (0-2). Jordan Pacheco had an RBI
double and scored on a single by Tyler Colvin. The Cubs loaded the bases in thee
second before Berken grounded out to end the inning. Justin Smith Super Bowl Jersey. Colorado
added to its lead in the third. Blackmon led off with his second homer of the
season, Nelson hit a bases-loaded, two-run single and Colvin scored on a
double-play grounder by Andrew Brown to make it 6-0. Berken allowed six runs on
nine hits in four innings in his third start for the Cubs. Chicagos best chance
to score was thwarted by a great play by Nelson at third. With runners at second
and third and one out in the seventh, Sappelt hit a deep drive to left. Blackmon
caught it at the wall and threw to Nelson at third, who made a sweeping tag on
Joe Mather before Josh Vitters could score on the tag-up. NOTES: Cubs 2B
Darwin Barney extended his errorless streak to 140 games. He needs one more game
to tie for the major league record, set by Placido Polanco of the Detroit Tigers
in 2007. ... The Rockies are trying to become the first team to hit .300 at home
since 2007, when the Angels and Yankees did it. ... Colorado C Wilin Rosario was
0 for 4. Its the first time in six games he failed to get at least two hits. ’ ’
