Argonauts' special teams truly special in easy win

Oct 7, 2007 - 12:04 AM
TORONTO (Ticker) -- Dominique Dorsey and Byron Parker each scored special teams touchdowns, helping the Toronto Argonauts cruise to a 33-8 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday.

Dorsey energized the home crowd with a 69-yard punt return that put Toronto ahead 9-0 in the first quarter. But it was Parker and Jordan Younger who combined to close the door on the Eskimos in the final quarter.

Younger broke through Edmonton's punt protection unit and blocked Sean Fleming's punt deep in Edmonton territory, with Parker - who also collected two interceptions - recovering and running 23 yards for the TD that put Toronto ahead 23-8 just over two minutes in the final quarter.

When the Argonauts' special teams units weren't standing out, the CFL's top-ranked defense was making plays, sacking Edmonton quarterbacks six times and forcing four turnovers.

Toronto (7-7) earned its third straight win to move into second in the East Division, two points ahead of Montreal Alouettes (6-7). Edmonton (5-8-1) remains fourth in the West Division, three points behind the third-place Calgary Stampeders (6-6-1).
