31-10 Als, Guy record-setting TD
The Als' two biggest question marks were answered with endzone celebrations.
Victor Anderson and Trent Guy both scored pairs of touchdowns before the 4th quarter to give the Als a commanding 31-7 leads.
Guy scored on a franchise-record 129-yard missed field goal even after dropping the ball at the back of the Montreal endzone. The Als' struggling kick-returner also scored on a touchdown catch for his first CFL TD. Guy surpassed speedsters like Tim Maypray and Ezra Landry with 125-yard returns back in 2010 and 2005 respectively.
"I'll definitely trim my hair back now," Guy told the CJAD postgame show after being tackled by his lengthy dreadlocks by the Argos on some of his punt returns.
Anderson proved ready to carry the load for the Als replacing the injured Brandon Whitaker, and he proved it on the opening drive of the game. Anderson caught a TD pass from Calvillo and ran it 40 yards for a touchdown. He also accounted for 19 yards on the ground and drew a key facemask penalty for another 15 yards.
Chris Jennings made an impact as well. The Als are impressed their former practise roster player in 2008-09 has returned from NFL and UFL exile in remarkable shape. He saw his first CFL contact since 2009 Week 1 on special teams.
The Als host the Argos with a chance to strengthen the hold on 1st place in the CFL East. A win also evens the head to head series at 1-1, with another battle Oct. 14, the Fan Train Game in Toronto.
The Als face the Ti-Cats in Hamilton next Friday night live on CJAD 800 (Countdown to Kickoff 6:45 right after the Aaron Rand Show.)
The Als were close to a sellout: 23,209.
