Alouettes at Blue Bombers

Montreal travelled to Winnipeg this week and @TheBrysh called a 26-13 victory for the Bombers. The Alouettes got off to a great start with constant harassment of Bombers QB Zach Collaros, limiting Winnipeg to 7 points in the first half. Collaros played well enough to to take the victory with 210 yards passing, but threw 3 interceptions against 2 TD’s. The running game for the Bombers took over when the passing was wavering, with RB Brady Oliviera grinding out a tough 92 yards and a TD. Montreal’s offensive game was unimpressive with barely 200 yards passing from QB’s Trevor Harris and Dominique Davis. The Als leading rusher, Jeshrun Antwi had only 45 yards on the ground. Winnipeg turned up the heat in the 4th quarter to take the game 35-20.

Stampeders at Redblacks

The Ottawa Redblacks hosted the Calgary Stampeders in week 9 with a predictable finish. The resulting 17-3 victory lifted the Stamps record to 5-2, while the Redblacks fall to 1-7. This game was a slow paced grinding affair, with both teams passing efforts met with difficulties. Calgary only managed 149 yards passing, while Ottawa picked up 252, neither team recorded a single touchdown. Stamps RB Reggie Begelton kept the ball moving with 100 yards on the day, allowing for Kicker RenĂ© Paredes to pick up 3 field goals, including a 51 yarder. Ottawa’s record of 1-7 is misleading as they have kept games close, had a tough season, and held a powerful Calgary squad to zero TD’s.

Tiger-Cats at Argonauts

A valiant effort from Hamilton QB Dane Evans went for naught, as his Ti-Cats dropped to 2-6 in their loss to the Toronto Argonauts 34-20 this week. The Argos climbed to 4-3 , and sit comfortably on top of the East Division. Evans passed for over 300 yards with a 67% completion rate, but only managed 1 TD against 1 interception. Hamilton enjoyed a 13-0 lead through most of the first half, by the 4th quarter Toronto had tied the game at 17-17. Hamilton has been hailed as the defensive powerhouse of the East, but it was Toronto’s defense that sealed the victory. Argos LB Trevor Hoyte blocked a Hamilton punt that was picked up for a Toronto TD. Ten minutes later, Argonauts DB Chris Edwards intercepted an Evans pass for a pick-six that lead to the Argos lead, leaving the final score at 34-20 Toronto.

Elks at Lions

Edmonton wasn’t given much hope of competing for the win in this week’s road game against the high octane, offensive juggernaut of the BC Lions. And the Elks hate to disappoint the odds makers! @TheBrysh predicted this game as a 25 point blowout, and low-and-behold, BC went on a point scoring binge, final score 46-14. As predicted, Lions QB Nathan Rourke was in the zone and completed 34 of 37 for 92% completions and 5 touchdowns against zero interceptions. Edmonton’s only noteworthy performance was WR Derel Walker’s 9 catches for 91 yards. The BC Lions defense kept Elks QB Cornelius Taylor in check, sacking him 5 times and keeping his yardage under 200 yards. Ten Lions defenders recorded multiple tackles, emphasizing the full team effort that lead to the BC victory.
