Game Summary

It was a battle of undefeated as the Montreal Alouettes traveled west this week to play the Calgary Stampeders in one of the marquee match-ups of this early football season. Calgary K Mark McLoughlin accounted for all of the first quarter scoring with a single off a 29-yard FG attempt. 1:49 into the second quarter, Montreal QB Tracy Ham found WR Mac Cody in the end zone for a 32-yard TD reception. Ham followed this with his second TD toss of the night, this time a 33-yard strike to WR Eddie Brown at 4:54. K Terry Baker’s converts gave Montreal a 13-point cushion. Calgary responded quickly, however, as QB Jeff Garcia found perennial all-star Allen Pitts for a 24-yard TD reception at 8:54. McLoughlin’s convert was good cutting the Montreal lead to 6. At 11:20 Baker scored a single after missing a 33-yard FG attempt. Then with no time left on the clock McLoughlin hit his first successful FG of the night from 17 yards to make the score 15-11 at the half. McLoughlin opened the scoring in the second with a single as he missed his second FG attempt from 32-yards out. Then on the next drive Ham connected with WR Millard Coleman for a 18-yard TD pass at 9:41. Baker’s convert rounded out the scoring in the third quarter with the Als on top by a 22-12 margin. Just over 1 minute into the final quarter Ham threw his 4th TD pass of the day, this time to SB Jock Climie from 2 yards out. Baker’s convert was good and Montreal upped their lead to 29-12. As in past games, Calgary had a late surge as back-up QB Dave Dickenson scrambled into the end zone from the 1-yard line at 12:54. Garcia returned to the game and scored a rushing TD of his own with a 14-yard run. McLoughlin connected on both converts but it was not enough as Calgary’s comeback attempt failed, making the final score 29-26 and leaving Montreal as the only undefeated team left in the CFL.
