Final Score: Montreal 46, Calgary 19
Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - Ben Cahoon caught four passes to become the CFL's all-time receptions leader and Anthony Calvillo passed for 395 yards and two scores, as the Montreal Alouettes took a 46-19 win over Calgary.
Cahoon's four receptions give him 1,007 for his career, one more than the total accumulated by Terry Vaughn. He made the historic fourth catch in the fourth quarter, and the game was stopped for a brief ceremony.
"I feel relieved that it's over," said Cahoon. "Now I can concentrate on getting 20 or 30 more this year."
Cahoon's accomplishment headlines a big day for Montreal (10-4), which rebounded from a loss at Calgary 10 days ago. Calvillo completed 28-of-38 passes and threw both of his touchdowns to Brian Bratton, while Colt David kicked six field goals in the victory.
"We needed to make this turnaround and make it for ourselves," Calvillo said. "Last week was not what we wanted to do, so we had to show the country that we could bounce back."
Henry Burris threw for 219 yards and two scores, but was intercepted twice for the Stampeders (10-4), who have dropped three of their last four contests.
"They played with more intensity than we did this week," Burris said. "We made some plays in the second half but it was too late."
Calgary routed Montreal last week by a 46-21 margin, but the Als turned the tables Monday.
David kicked field goals of 28 and 35 yards in the first quarter, while Calgary recorded a single, but Montreal poured on the offense in the second frame.
A five-yard run by Avon Cobourne capped a five-play, 85-yard drive about two minutes into the second, and David's 47-yarder with a little more than five minutes left made it a 16-1 game.
After the Stamps responded with a 24-yard field goal from Rob Maver, Montreal pulled away with two quick scores. Calvillo led the Alouettes on a five-play, 86-yard drive that he capped with a 24-yard TD pass to Bratton.
That score came with under a minute to play, and Montreal got the ball back after Burris was intercepted by De'Audre Dix on the second play of Calgary's next drive.
Montreal took over at the Calgary 12-yard line and scored in four plays, the last being Calvillo's one-yard pass to Bratton.
David kicked an 18-yarder shortly into the third quarter, and the game turned into a blowout on the next Stamps possession. With Calgary just short of midfield, Burris was picked off by Ramon Guzman, who ran the ball 43 yards for a touchdown and a 40-4 Montreal lead.
Burris threw touchdowns to Romby Bryant and Arjei Franklin to pull Calgary within 40-18 moving to the fourth, but the deficit was too much to overcome. David kicked two 32-yarders in the final frame, while Calgary added a single, and the contest turned ugly near the end.
Calgary receiver Ken-Yon Rambo and Montreal defensive back Billy Parker got into a scuffle in the final minutes and were ejected, along with Bryant.
Burris completed 16-of-30 passes...Montreal's Jamel Richardson had four catches for 126 yards. Cobourne finished with 10 carries for 60 yards, and added six receptions for 37 yards...Nik Lewis led Calgary with six catches for 84 yards.
