HAMILTON — Kerry Joseph and the Toronto Argonauts needed just over a quarter to take care of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Wednesday night.

Joseph threw two of his three TD passes in a 20-point first quarter to pace the Argos to a 30-17 win over the Ticats in the CFL opener for both teams.

The win marked the successful debut of Toronto head coach Bart Andrus, the former NFL and NFL Europe coach who was appearing in his first-ever CFL game. Andrus, who is also serving as the Argos’ offensive co-ordinator and making the play calls, received an ice-water shower from his players after the game.

“I would never want to do this job if I couldn’t have fun at it and I preach that to the players because I want them enjoying the game again,” Andrus said. “At some point when they were young they played this game because it was fun and went back the next day and played again because it was fun and we want to keep that part of it.”
