One of the biggest offseason signings for the Saskatchewan Roughriders had a breakthrough performance for the Green and White in a 38-27 win over the Toronto Argonauts.
Wide receiver Duron Carter caught 9 passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns, including what may be the catch of the year so far in the CFL. With seconds left in the first half, Carter was able to reach up and make a one-handed, backhand catch in the endzone from quarterback Kevin Glenn, tying the game up at 17 all heading into the second half. After the game, Glenn said Carter's catch was one of the best he's seen in his 17 year career. In that second half, Argos pivot Ricky Ray found Jeff Fuller for a 29 yard score, and Toronto held a 4-point lead heading into the fourth, when the Riders turned it up a notch. Glenn found Carter for a 34 yard completion before the two would partner up again for a 14 yard touchdown, giving the Riders their first lead of the game and getting the home crowd on their feet. The teams traded field goals before Glenn found Caleb Holley in the endzone, wrapping up Glenn's 340 yard, 4 touchdown performance, with no turnovers. With less than a minute left, the Riders D stifled Ray, who couldn't find a response as time expired. The win puts Saskatchewan at 2-3 and 4 points back of Winnipeg for third in the West. The Riders will now head to Hamilton to play the lowly Tiger-Cats, who have dropped to 0-5 after a 60-1 beatdown by Calgary.
