Montreal tops Saskatchewan 37-12








Anthony Cavillo passed for three touchdowns Sunday, offsetting a four fieldgoal effort from Luca Congi, leading the Montreal Alouettes to a 37-12 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Canadian Football League action at Percival-Molson Memorial Stadium in Montreal, in front of 20,202 fans.

Montreal opened the scoring as a missed 32 yard fieldgoal by Damon Duval went through the end zone, resulting in the single. Luca Congi gave the Riders their only lead of the game with an 8 yard fieldgoal late in the opening quarter, but the Alouettes took over with three scores in the second period. Aaron McPherson scored on a 1 yard run, then Anthony Cavillo hit Kerry Carter from 21 yards out and Jamel Richardson from 16 yards. Duval added the convert both times. Congi kicked a 40 yard fieldgoal in the final minute of the second for Saskatchewan, leaving the Riders trailing 22-6 at the half.

Congi's 21 yard fieldgoal opened the 2nd half scoring, then Montreal scored again, as Cavillo passed to Brian Bratton for 10 yards and a score. Duval again added the convert. Congi ended third quarter scoring with his fourth fieldgoal of the afternoon, this one from 22 yards out, making it 29-12 after three, in favor of the Alouettes.

Montreal would deny Saskatchewan an opportunity for a fourth quarter comeback, by putting 8 more point on the board. Avon Cobourne capped a 5 play, 41 yard drive with a 2 yard run, with 4:50 remaining. Duval added the convert, then booted the ensuing kickoff 78 yards for a single to wrap up the scoring, as the Alouettes rolled to the 37-12 victory.

The Riders, who started the season with 6 straight wins, dropped their third straight and slipped into a second place tie with B.C. at 8-5 for 16 points, 2 points behind West leading Calgary. Montreal, winners of 7 of their last 8 games, improved to 9-5 for 18 points and first place in the East, 8 points ahead of second place Winnipeg. The Alouettes also clinched home field in the CFL semifinals with the win.

Things don't get any easier for the injury depleted Roughriders, who must face first place Calgary in their next two contests. The Stampeders invade Taylor Field at Mosaic Stadium on October 3rd at 7:00p.m. Central time, then host Saskatchewan on October 13th at 1:30p.m. Central time.
