The Riders lost their second straight game in two weeks, both to Toronto. Their record fell to 4-3 on aggregate.

Seven starters who played in a 30-24 loss to the Argonauts in the Touchdown Atlantic game on July 23 sat out Sunday’s game due to injury or illness.

The Riders’ three losses this season have come against the Eastern Conference. There is one game left against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in October.

Three of the Riders’ next four games are against the BC Lions, with matchups coming up on July 29, August 19 and August 26. The series of games is interrupted by a competition with the Elks in Edmonton on August 13.
