The Alouettes won a defensive battle against the Tigercats 37 to 14 in their 1st home game at the renovated Molson Stadium. This game was dominated by the defence of both teams. Damon Duval was the star of the game as he tied a club record by kicking 7 FGs. This is good news as Duval had missed 4 of 11 FG attempts before this game. The Tigercats did not have a lot of scoring opportunities and their 4 turnovers were costly.
The sold out crowd of 25,012 fans at Molson Stadium held their breath in the 2nd quarter when Anthony Calvillo stayed down after getting hit and headed to the dressing room. A few minutes later, they were all relieved as AC was back. He did not miss a snap.
The Alouettes ended their TD drought in the 4th quarter by scoring 2 TDs to Carter and Watkins. The Alouettes had gone over 7 quarters without getting into their opponents end zone.
Marc Trestman said before the game that he was not happy with the performance of his team’s offence last week, and I doubt that he will be happy with their performance against the Tigercats.
Etienne Boulay of the Alouettes said that he was able to feel the difference of the additionnal fans in the stadium. He said that when the Als stopped the Ticats on the 1 yard line in the first quarter, it was the loudest that the crowd has been in Montreal since he has joined the Alouettes. This was the 96th consecutive sell out at Molson Stadium in Montreal.
The Als will be hosting the Argos next Thursday.
