Live blog: Roughriders 26 vs Alouettes 30 FINAL

Posted By Chris G On Aug 6 2010 @ 7:13 pm In Montreal Alouettes | No Comments

The Alouettes try to revenge their season opening loss against the Roughriders.

Prediction: The Als will win but this game won’t be as exciting as the season opener as I told former Alouette and current Sportsnet analyst Bryan Chiu on Twitter:

Q1 14:00 — The Alouettes score on their 2nd play of the game. The 1970 uniforms seem to be good luck for the Alouettes. S.J. Green looked like Superman on that run
Q1 12:56—Told you that the uniforms were good luck !
Q1 6:44— Apparently it is tougher to tackle in those uniforms. A lot of missed tackles by both teams early in this game but it is not the first time that Durant breaks tackles.
Q1 1:19—Durant looks more dangerous when he is in trouble

Q2 13:00- The only thing that will stop Cahoon’s 133 consecutive game with a catch streak is retirement. I expect him to beat Flutie and move up in the all time reception list.
Q2 9:30– It was not Calvillo but TSN that dropped the ball on that one!
Q2 3:00– The Riders on a good offensive drive right now…Game is not as easy as it looked to start off the game.
Q2 2:28—That didn’t help !
Q2 2:16—Big penalty against the Riders
Q2 2:00—This could be the turning point in this game
Q2 0:10—So close 2 times for the Riders for a TD….They will settle for a FG
Q2 0:00— Even though I ain’t crazy about Rod Black, he is right. The game is not over yet ! It is the same score at the half like it was in game 1 and we all remember what happenned then.

Q3 13:00—Durant is a great runner!
Q3 11:45–The legs got tangled. Don’t think that a flag should have been thrown
Q3 7:49- We will see if this will be Saskatchewan ball after the penalty. If not, it is a big turnover for the Riders and they need to capitalize.
Q3 7:49- Big break for the Als!
Q3 5:30– The players kept saying that tonight’s game is not a revenge game but it looks like there lots of intensity between these 2 teams
Q3 2:35–This game is too close to my liking
Q3 2:28– There’s AC….We missed him !

Q4 12:07–Deja vu?
Q4 11:40– Great trick play on the kick return
Q4 6:38– Als having trouble stopping the Riders on 2 and longs
Q4 6:22 — This looks like it will be an exciting ending again. Props to the Riders for hanging on again.
Q4 5:00– Als can’t get nothing going offensively in the 2nd half
Q4 3:40- Chip Cox with his 2nd freaky INT of the night
Q4 2:55– Calvillo hurt again……hopefully he will be back even though he doesn’t have impressive stats in the 2nd half
Q4 2:38- The Riders need a TD now. Big sack in the end zone for the Als
Q4 2:31- Calvillo with a hurt index finger. He won’t be back tonight. Will the Als run the ball for the rest of the game?
Q4 0:59- Calvillo on the sidelines trying out his hurt index finger
Q4 0:39- 2nd and long and he was all open but he dropped the ball. Big break!
Q4 0:30- They made it again on 2nd and long!
Q4 0:00— Another thriller between these 2 teams. The last 3 games between them have been exciting. Too bad tey face each other only twice in the regular season
