If they want to finish first in the Canadian Football League East, the Montreal Alouettes have no choice but to end the season perfect.
After the Toronto Argonauts’ 28-23 win over the Edmonton Elks on Saturday, the Queen City team improved to 10-6 and now has a four-point priority over the Sparrows.
The “Argos” and the Alouettes meet in their last two duels of the regular season. So it’s still technically possible for Danny Maciocia’s men to overtake their nemesis in the standings.
In today’s duel, the Argonauts came back from behind with a 16-point quarter. In front of the deflated Elks (4-13), running back AJ Ouellette offered his team the win by scoring the touchdown with 30 seconds left that made the difference.
Behind the Torontonians center, McLeod made up for Bethel-Thompson after a lackluster start to the game. He had 273 yards through the air and completed a touchdown pass that ended in the hands of DaVaris Daniels.
The Argonauts will be at Percival Molson Stadium next Saturday.
