Cats march downfield aided by a 15- yard FM penalty on Ottawa...............Marshall shows his stuff with a beauty YAK yard run to the RBs 24...............UR call on Cats - forcing them to march back 15 yards.........Dane connects with Acklin for the D......but gets thrown to the ground on the next play...........fumbles the ball but Hamilton recovers........2nd and 10 and Dane finds Acklin for the TD!!!!!!!!!!
Convert is good and the Cats extend their lead to 11 points with just over 8 minutes left in the final Q.


Holley reacts late to a lateral from Davis.....ball falls to the ground and the Cats recover to take the ball on the RBs 18................Banks gets them 7..........RBs D comes up big on next play and Lirim is out to try a 21 yarder and this one works out just fine........Cats take a 21 - 7 lead.

Ottawa on a role marching into Cats territory........Davis goes for the long bomb to the end zone but a great defensive play by the Cats Adeleke forces them to 2nd and 10...........Davis connects with Sinopoli for a big gain to the 14...........no love on the next play......2nd and goal from just inside the 10.........Davis gets booed as he is chased around the red zone and finally forced to throw the ball away.............Campbell gambles and loses on 3rd and 10............fans are not amused...........seen shaking their heads.......Hamiltons ball but deep in their own zone........Cats come up short and will be forced to punt.

Alouettes will be in Calgary to play the Stumps following the conclusion of this game. Go Als!


2:45 left in the game............RBs take possession at the Cat's 48.............no room for error for the woodchoppers now........they need two converted TDs to tie the game and we are down to 2:03

And that last miss puts the RBs at 3rd and 10................Campbell gambles again and again he loses........Hamilton's ball with 1:43 on the clock.

Hamilton fans are beside themselves with joy..............Ottawa fans...........not so much. LOL

Cats are forced to punt after going to 3rd and 6........and they are not going to gamble.........Logan gets to his own 50..........flag on play..........Ottawa tagged with UR and forced back 15 yards 1:02...................Davis holds and gets the first D...............goes for the long bomb and misses his target...........2nd 10...........Holley comes up short by inches..........of course they will gamble........this time they are good and get the D ..........but with :29 on the clock..........the game is already over for Ottawa who will surely be having some serious discussions considering their almost insignificant place in the standings. 1 win in their last 7 games.

Cats remain top of their division with a 7 and 2 record adding another 2 points to their total which increases their lead over the nearest contender to 8 points.

It wasn't a particularly great game by the Cats but they got the job done. Congrats Cats.

And now we are off to Calgary .............

Al's on the board first with a FG as their defense is managing to hold the Stumps off the board for almost 10 minutes of the 1rst Q. Stumps coach has a seniors moment when he decides to challenge a DPI that no one else can see no matter the number of replays...........loses that challenge and a time-out and he's outta challenges .........all this with just over 8 minutes left in the first Q.........what the heck was he thinking?..........though I'm quite happy with his decision all the same.....anything to stump the stamps.
 
Mowich
#399
3:41...............unfortunately, the Al's defence came up short in that series and the stumps put up 7 points with the convert to lead by 4........flag after the play......there's been some pushing and shoving going on even before the game started and the Al's are tagged with a UR call

Al's give up a single on the punt.
8 - 3 Calgary

Al's plow ahead for the first D with 1:08 left in the Q............2nd and 4............Vernon connects with Posey for the D with :06 left..........flag on the play...........Calgary tagged with a late hit gifts the Al's 15 ..............Vernon goes for the Hail Mary with no time on the clock but his receiver fumbles the ball...........Calgary recovers and runs the ball out to around the 15?..........flag on the play - Calgary another UR pushes them back deep in their own zone.............like just outside the goal posts...............so far they have advanced to their 36.......ah, it appears that two former stumps on the Al's team might be harboring ill feelings and causing a few problems...........grow up.
 
Mowich
#401
Oh and somewhere along the line we got to the 2nd Q.........missed that.
 
Mowich
#402
Whoa................Calgary just had a 60 yard pick by Eric Rodgers called back due to a holding call...........2 and 18 and the stumps come up short again...............Maver punts one to the Al's 35...........and that is where they will take possession of the ball.
 
Mowich
#403
Holy Smoke.................Adams to Posey and down to the stumps 15............Jeremiah Johnson gets to the 2 yard line but Posey is tagged for holding and they are marched back10..............1rst and 20..............Adams connects with his receiver for a gain of 14........2nd and 6......Vernon keeps himself but is stalled at the LOS.........3rd and 6 and the Venerable Bede will take to the field for 19 yard FG.....Al's add another 6 to their score only 2 points behind Calgary with 8:43 left in the first half.
 
Mowich
#404
2:43 left in the Q......stumps threatening in the red zone............Arbuckle fails to connect with his receiver in the end zone............or wait a minute did he.............did his receiver have possession long enough for the TD............nope, stumps have to try again and again come up short down inside the 5...........3rd and goal .....Paredes out for a chip shot..........Calgary goes ahead by 5 points with 1:40 remaining.
 
Mowich
#405
Vernon intercepted on first play of their next series.....stumps slowly move the ball downfield...........go for it on 3rd down.........:03 left...........FG team out.............Calgary ends the half up 8 points over the Als.



Half-time.

We rejoin the game at the 11:53 mark in the 3rd Q after enjoying a lovely dinner.


Score remains the same as the Al's are managing to hold the stumps scoreless but are unable to do so themselves so far...........however, they just advanced into Calgary's red zone............Vernon's pass too low for Posey - who has helped mightily in the drive so far..............Wienke with TD - convert good and the Al's tie the game with 8:28 to go in the Q.

#407
I must say that the Al's D is doing a fine job of holding the stumps from scoring a lot......Venon making good use of all of his receivers - keeping the stumps from easily reading the play...........Adams keeps himself and gets another 1rst D and the Al's are at the 34.............#24 gets them another 1rst D..............Johnson takes them just inside the 10........2nd and 3..........and Johnson has nowhere to go and loses a yard.........FG unit will take over and 3 and 4........... Bede hammers one through the uprights and the Al's ..........can you believe it.............take a 3 point lead over the stumps......GO ALS!

#408
Al's D steps up again and forces the stumps to another 2 and out................Al's will start at their own 25 after the punt and a short return with :57 on the clock

#409
Vernon unable to find his receivers and the Al's go 2 and out

Stamps take the lead back after Arbuckle connects with his receiver for pass and run right into the end zone early in the 4th.
 
Mowich
#411
Vernon connects with Lewis for a big first D.................Johnson gets them another 6 ..........his next pass is way too low and ahead of Posey so they are forced to punt once again...........flags fly on the punt return after it's almost blocked by Calgary...........who on the very next play finds his receiver for a really neat pass and run play...........right into the end zone...........convert increases their lead to 11 points with 9:56 left to play.
 
Mowich
#412
Al's killing their chances with penalties in spite of making some really good plays and real gains..............2nd and 20 and Jeremiah is going exactly nowhere..........Al's forced to punt with just over 6 minutes left for them to get a converted TD, a FG and a single point ..........don't think that's going to happen.
 
Mowich
#413
Kudos to young Arbuckle - he's had a great game..............over 300 yards in completions. Anything that keeps Boo off the field works for me. LOL
 
Mowich
#414
Ryan literally falls on his face returning the punt for the Al's who will start at their own 13.................Vernon completes a pass to Posey up to the 31...............1rst and 10......nobody in the area and the pass falls to the ground.................2nd and 10........and the pass is out of the hands of Posey...............Al's punt................Williams returns it to the 50 for Calgary and any hope that Montreal had of a comeback is gone.

I love it when that sleazy tactic fails........do not like a team trying to get the opposition to jump the line on 3rd Ds.

Calgary tagged with RTP............Montreal 1rst D at the 50.................Posey up to the 25..............and Vernon finds Lewis for the TD!.........they go for the 2-point convert and darn if they don't make it...............they are now but a FG away from a tie with :38 left in the game............give 'em credit for fighting on.........WTF........Bede called for delay of game and pushed back 10 yards........but darned if the short kick doesn't just work in favor of the Al's who come up with the ball after a deadly accurate kick by Bede - more than making up for his prior oops...........:29 left..........Al's 1rst and 10 at the 50............Posey gets them to the Calgary 35.......be still my heart............:24 left.........and Vernon can't connect.........2nd and 10........with 17 seconds left on the clock ............whoa Calgary called for roughing the passer putting the Al's at the Calgary 20...............Vernon can't connect........2nd and 10 and again Vernon can't find his receiver.............3rd and 10 and Bede will come out and if the gods so favor them........tie the game.........and he delivers. I am so eating crow right now..............and it actually tastes pretty darn good............absolutely great effort by the Alouettes.
:02 left .............both QBs are over 300 yards tonight..................this turned out to be a really entertaining game - no matter the outcome........Calgary takes the ball and the receiver is eventually run out of bounds to end the 4th.............and we are off to OT..........I mean who knew?
 
Mowich
#417
Oh man.............that was way too easy .............Stamps score TD on three plays........but they don't get the 2-point convert .............Whoa that was some mix up but Vernon gets away and up to the 1............then he keeps it himself and somehow drives over the goal line.......coming out of the pile without a helmet his jersey pulled half way up his chest...........but he tied the game.................now they need the 2 points.........and the ball is knocked away in the end zone by a Calgary defender.


So, now we are off to the second round.............what a great game.........and this with Vernon on the limp but not backing down one iota............Rock on Vernon...........his first pass is knocked away before it gets to the receiver...........2nd and 10.........Vernon goes for the Hail Mary but his pass hits the goal post.............it bounces off into the hands of a Calgary receiver...........but, Calgary is tagged with RTP call and the Al's are first and 10 at the 20......they get the 1rst D and on the next play Vernon finds Lewis again for the TD............but wait.............after review the ruling is that Lewis did not break the plain..............they do get over on the very next play and review upholds the ruling on the field - TD Montreal...............over a 1000 net yards in the game so far tonight..........Lewis unable to hold on in the end zone..........so now it is up to Calgary to get the TD and the 2-pointer.............Al's have the lead 40 to 34 right now.

There but for a toe, the mighty Stamps may very well have won the day............but they didn't and for the first time since 2009 the Montreal Alouettes have beaten the Calgary Stampeders and.............in the Stumps backyard............bet that tickles not a few hearts. The Al's showed true grit in this win and I give them and most especially Vernon Adams so much credit for never once giving up or in - victory is yours and you well deserve it.
