Regina, Saskatchewan (Sports Network) - Anthony Calvillo went 24-for-34 with 281 yards and two touchdowns as the Montreal Alouettes crushed the Saskatchewan Roughriders, 43-10.

Avon Coburne had 25 carries for 145 yards and two scores while Kerry Watkins and Kerry Carter each added a touchdown reception for the Alouettes (3-0), who are now the lone undefeated team in the league.

Darian Durant went 10-for-20 with 112 yards and one interception while Wes Cates provided a rushing touchdown for the Roughriders (2-1), who were coming off a 46-36 win over Toronto last week.

The Alouettes got the only points of the first quarter courtesy of a 40-yard field goal from Damon Duval with under six minutes to play in the frame and a single on a missed 54-yard field goal from Duval.

The Roughriders, though, took the lead early in the second quarter when a fumble recovery deep in Montreal territory resulted in a four-yard touchdown run from Cates.

A single later in the second gave Saskatchewan an 8-4 lead, but, on its ensuing possession, Montreal grabbed the lead back when Calvillo and Carter hooked up on a 20-yard touchdown with under seven minutes to play in the first half for an 11-8 lead.

Duval later connected on a 30-yard field goal to help Montreal take a 14-8 lead into the locker room.

On their first possession of the second half, the Alouettes marched the ball down the field and made it a 21-8 game on a 55-yard touchdown catch by Watkins and added another point with a single on the ensuing kickoff.

Later in the third quarter, a seven-yard touchdown run from Coburne was followed by a single from Duval on the kickoff for a 30-8 lead.

Duval booted a 21-yard field goal in the fourth, but later conceded a safety when he stepped out of the end zone.

A 40-yard field goal from Duval and a two-yard touchdown run by Coburne later in the fourth wrapped up the scoring.
