The Montreal Alouettes trounced the Calgary Stampeders 28-11 at McMahon Stadium, effectively snapping their four-game losing streak. What began as a close defensive battle in the first half turned into a one-sided affair as the Alouettes capitalized on turnovers and seized control in the final two quarters.
Quarterback Cody Fajardo led the Alouettes with 252 yards on 22 completions out of 29 attempts, including a touchdown and an interception. William Stanback contributed 81 rushing yards on 14 attempts, while T. Philpot had a noteworthy 87 receiving yards on four catches.
Darnell Sankey led the Alouettes on the defensive end with 10 tackles, but it was Shawn Lemon who stole the show with a key interception and two sacks. Marc- Antoine Dequoy also contributed with an interception and a pass knockdown, changing the CFL scores and momentum in favor of Montreal.
The Stampeders struggled on offense, led by quarterback Jake Maier, who completed 29 out of 37 attempts for 271 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. Ka’Deem Carey had 70 rushing yards, and Reggie Begelton was the leading receiver with 109 yards and a touchdown.
Branden Dozier led the Stampeders in tackles with six, but no player managed to register a sack or an interception, thereby affecting the CFL standings adversely for Calgary.
This win is a much-needed boost for the Alouettes, who now move to 7-7, while the Stampeders sink further with a 4-10 record. The Alouettes’ defense was the standout in this game, capitalizing on the Stampeders’ mistakes to secure the win.
The Alouettes will look to continue their winning ways when they face the Ottawa REDBLACKS on September 30. The Stampeders, on the other hand, will aim to bounce back against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats later the same day.
The week’s results have stirred the pot in the CFL standings, setting the stage for some crucial matchups as the season winds down.
