Jacques Chapdelaine has not stopped saying how much this game against the Argonauts was important. His players have grasped the message. The Alouettes have had because of the Toronto 21-9 to reach the first rank in the East in front of a crowd announced of 19 712 spectators at the stade Percival-Molson.


Ernest Jackson, and George Johnson have marked the affected Alouettes (3-4), while Boris Bede has managed investments on 17 and 21 yards. The replica of the Argos (3-5) is coming from Lirim Hajrullahu, who has managed the investments of 47, 31 and 37 yards.


Darian Durant was again effective at the helm of the attack in montreal, completing 12 of his 18 passes in the first half, including two for touchdowns, to allow the Cheerleader to go to the locker room with a lead of 18-3.


He first joined Jackson on 41 yards in the first quarter, before allowing Johnson to score his first major career on a set of 16 yards and a quarter later. A single Bede — on an investment, missed from 31 yards, stopping his streak of success to 15 — and a successful placement, and a placement of Hajrullahu have completed the mark.

Attack amputated

It must be said that private a quarter from Ricky Ray, the attack of Argos was severely amputated. In his absence, Jeff Mathews has not done anything worthwhile, only completing eight passes in 12 attempts for 67 yards in the first half, a performance insufficient for that Marc Trestman leaves him with the opportunity to begin the third quarter.


Cody Fajardo led the Argos to the line 24 from the first thrust of Torontonians to the back of the break, but they had to settle for the placement of a 31-yard Hajrullahu.


At the end of the third period, Fajardo has once again started an interesting sequence for Torontonians, but on a third attempt and five yards to make it to the line 7 of the Larks, the visitors have committed an unlawful procedure, in addition to being penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, so that the Alouettes have returned the ball to their line 17.


Unable to hammer the final nail in the coffin of Argos, the Alouettes have re-enabled the visitors to keep the ball in a good position, but the defense has still held out, allowing only a third investment Hajrullahu, his 27th this season.


The Argos have once again approached the end zone late in the game. Then that Fajardo believed to have joined Jeff Fuller in the end zone, the game has rather been remembered for a block illegal for a teammate. On a third trial and a 20-yard pass, Fajardo stood out to locate Khalil Paden in the end zone, but he escaped the ball, sealing the fate of his own.


The two teams meet again next Saturday at BMO Field in Toronto. You can bet that Trestman will want to be able to count on Ray this time.
