Game Notes

Game Summary

Traveling into McMahon stadium is tough at the best of times, but for the Montreal Alouettes, this trip seemed much tougher. The reason? They were coming in to take on the Stamps the week following Calgary’s loss to the Edmonton Eskimos. In the end, it was the Als who would go on to record their seventh victory of the season while the Stamps dropped their second consecutive. Montreal K Terry Baker got the ball rolling at 3:56 when he connected on a 42 yard field goal, his first of three on the day. DB Charles Gordon added to that lead 1:12 later when he stepped in front of an errant Jeff Garcia pass and returned it 26 yards for the major. The Baker convert put Montreal up by 10. The Alouettes continued to dominate the scoring during the first quarter and added to their lead at 12:44 when Ham found RB Michael Soles alone in the end zone for an 11 yard touchdown strike. The Baker convert rounded out the first quarter scoring with Montreal sporting a commanding 17-0 lead. Calgary got themselves on the scoreboard fifteen seconds into the second quarter when P Tony Martino recorded a 55 yard punting single. Baker added his second field goal of the day at 12:14, this one from 36 yards out to put Montreal up 20-1. Martino added another single before Baker booted his third FG of the day, a 44 yard effort to round out the first half scoring with the Alouettes up by a 23-2 margin. Montreal increased their lead to 25-2 at 11:14 of the third period when Martino conceded a safety. The Stamps finally got on track offensively at 14:20 of the third quarter when backup QB Danny Barrett hooked up with WR Terry Vaughn for a 20 yard major. McLoughlin added the convert to make the score 25-9 after three quarters of play. The Stamps struck early in the fourth quarter when Barrett and SB Dave Sapunjis combined for a 4 yard TD pass at 0:38. Sapunjis completed the play by hauling in a pass from Barrett for the two-point convert, cutting the Montreal lead to 8. However, two Mark McLoughlin FGs would be as close as they would come and the Alouettes hung on to record a 25-23 victory.
