Game Notes

Game Summary

17,886 Alouette faithful turned out last Friday evening to see their hometown club defeat the Edmonton Eskimos by a 32-18 count. The win gave Montreal sole possession of second place in the East Division, while the Eskimos dropped four back of the Calgary Stampeders in the race for first in the West Division. The two teams traded singles before Edmonton hoofer Sean Fleming kicked a 50 yard FG to round out the first quarter scoring. Montreal K Terry Baker countered with a FG of his own at 1:47 of the second stanza, a 25 yard boot that tied the game at four. The Eskimos grabbed the lead again at 6:26 when they recorded a 2-point safety. Fleming added field goals of 26 and 9 yards to round out the first half scoring with the Eskimos on top by a 12 to 4 margin. Fleming opened up the second half scoring with his fourth FG of the contest, this one from 35 yards out. After this however, it was all Montreal. RB Michael Soles hooked up with QB Tracy Ham for a 16 yard pass and catch TD. Minutes later, RB Mike Pringle and Ham connected from 5 yards out to give the Als a 18-15 lead after three periods of play. Fleming tied the game for Edmonton scoring his fifth FG of the game, this one from 21 yards out. This would be all of the scoring the Eskimos would muster up as Alouette SB Jock Climie’s 10 yard receiving TD and DB Irv Smith’s 29 yard interception return TD rounded out the Alouettes’ 32-point effort. Once again, the final from Montreal’s Olympic Stadium, the Alouettes 32 and the Eskimos 18.
