Tiger-Cats earn solid win over Argos

Oct 2, 2011 - 3:19 AM Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Kevin Glenn threw for 301 yards and a score, while Terry Grant added 115 yards on the ground as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats pulled away from the Toronto Argonauts, 27-12.

For Grant, it was just his second game in the last two years. He had such a promising early career as he led Alabama in rushing as a red-shirt freshman in 2007. But nagging injuries forced him to call it quits in 2010.

"The first game, I was tired," he said. "This game I adjusted, I felt better. It was important to get rolling in the beginning of the game."

Grant had 23 yards and a score on five rushes last week against Calgary.

Dave Stala led all Tiger-Cat receivers with 63 yards on three receptions, while Avon Cobourne added 53 yards rushing on 12 carries.

Hamilton (7-6) is now just two points behind of the top spot in the East Division, currently shared by Montreal and Winnipeg. Both teams are 8-5.

Chad Owens led all receivers with 81 yards on five catches, while Steven Jyles added 60 yards rushing for the Argonauts (3-10).

"I'm not frustrated," said Jyles. "I'm just thinking what I could do to turn our offense around. You can't beat a good team just by kicking field goals."

Jyles completed 12-of-25 passes for 142 yards.

The Argonauts started the scoring with a first quarter 40-yard field goal by Noel Prefontaine, but the Tiger-Cats responded with 17 straight points.

Grant had an 89-yard touchdown scamper, while Chris Williams hauled in an eight-yard touchdown pass. Justin Medlock added a 31-yard field goal.

Prefontaine booted his second field goal of the game, this time from 19 yards, to cut the deficit to 17-6 heading into the locker room.

Prefontaine and Medlock exchanged field goals in the third quarter, and Prefontaine added his fourth field goal to make it a 20-12 game, a 28-yarder early in the fourth.

Quinton Porter's one-yard plunge with 7:58 remaining in the fourth quarter put the game away.
