REGINA - The Argos have become team resilience, down but never out, at times unwatchable, but in the end victorious.

Zach Collaros went from being brutal to brilliant, taking advantage of an overturned ruling and stepping up when his team needed Collaros the most.

There was a run game when the clock needed to be managed and an inner strength that once again surfaced.

For the second straight week, the Argos rebounded from a porous opening half to emerge as the superior team.

It was far from pretty, but a win is a win by any measuring stick and to win on the road speaks to the Argos’ mental toughness.

The latest comeback was produced at Mosaic Stadium, where a stunned crowd watched the Argos beat the hometown Roughriders 31-29.

When a team is able to hang around long enough, aided in part by an opponent incapable of delivering a knock-out blow, the impossible becomes possible.
