TORONTO — The Toronto Argonauts have taken the next step in hosting the Eastern Final with a 29-28 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Saturday afternoon at BMO Field.
With the win, the Argos can clinch their first Eastern Final date since 2013, with an Ottawa loss next week or a win the following week in BC. Toronto has a game in hand on the Ottawa REDBLACKS who are now a point behind them in the standings with two weeks left to go. Argos are on a bye next week.
The win also helped clear up a bit of the West picture. Despite losing yesterday to Saskatchewan, Calgary was able to clinch the West Division via the Argos win over the Bombers and will host the Western Final on November 19 at McMahon Stadium.
