TORONTO — There have been more lows than highs for the Toronto Arg­onauts this sea­son.

But a mile­stone mo­ment was reached in Fri­day night’s

28-21 vic­tory over the vis­it­ing Ot­tawa Red­blacks as slot­back S.J. Green joined an exclusive class by eclips­ing 10,000 ca­reer re­ceiv­ing yards. He reached the plateau with 1:36 re­main­ing in the open­ing half.

The Ar­gos scored a TD on the drive to take a 17-3 ad­van­tage at half­time.

Green be­comes the 18th player in CFL his­tory to reach the 10,000 re­ceiv­ing to­tal. He led all re­ceivers against the Red­blacks with 10 re­cep­tions for 170 yards.

The Red­blacks’ loss — their 12th in the last 13 games — of­fi­cially elim­i­nates them from post-sea­son con­tention and as­sures a Western team will cross over into the East when the play­offs be­gin next month.

Toronto quar­ter­back Bethel-thomp­son com­pleted 27-of-36 passes for 300 yards with two touch­downs and one in­ter­cep­tion.

Ot­tawa coun­ter­part Will Arndt, in his first CFL start, com­pleted 28-of-42 passes for 288 yards with two touch­downs and three in­ter­cep­tions.

The re­sult leaves both teams with a 3-12 record.
