TORONTO - The Toronto Argonauts offence was as dry as dust against the B.C. Lions on Thursday.

Two hundred and forty nine total yards. A measly 34 on the ground.

The 24-16 score was incredibly flattering to the B.C. Place visitors, whose lone touchdown came in garbage time.

In fact, the only Argo doing any damage on a forgettable Week 2 road trip was a guy who was handed his walking papers in December.

Re-signed Noel Prefontaine, filling in for injured kicker Swayze Waters, notched 10 of his team’s 16 points and was the reason Toronto stood a chance.

But as terrible a performance as it was, don’t expect wholesale changes on offence when the Boatmen host old pal Ricky Foley and the Saskatchewan Roughriders at the Rogers Centre on Thursday.

With Ricky Ray at quarterback and wind-up toy Chad Owens on the field, let’s give the offence a mulligan and assume it will be just fine, as it was in the 39-34 season-opening win over Hamilton.
