Als win 27-25 over Esks
Canadian Football Hall of Famers Tracy Ham and Mike Pringle returned to Molson Stadium to help inspire the Alouettes versus the Eskimos and they couldn't leave until the last play.
Anthony Calvillo withstood a late hit from an Eskimo and threw for his 30th TD of the season to Bo Bowling, his 2nd in 2 weeks.
Calvillo insisted this week he wanted to play every minute of the game and started 8/10 for more than 100 yards in the 1st quarter.
In the 2nd quarter Adrian McPherson added a 1-yd TD run, his team-leading 8th of the season.
Sean Whyte kicked a 1st Q FG and added a 2nd Q coffin-corner punt that forced the Esks to give up a safety.
The Alouettes suffered another injury in the 1st half, losing Michael Ola from the offensive line.
Eric Deslauriers had his first TD of the season called back because of a penalty of Deslauriers own sloppy footwork. Deslauriers stepped out of bounds untouched and was called for illegal participation.
The Als got a win for Marc Trestman who moved into a tie for 1st place in regular season victories on the Montreal sideline. Trestman is currently tied with "Peahead" Walker, the Als' coach in the 1950's.
Trestman is hoping to win 3 in a row to close out regular season for the first time during his tenure, though it is expected Anthony Calvillo will be benched next week in Winnipeg. The Als have already clinched homefield advantage in the Eastern Final November 18 (12 Noon Countdown to Opening Kickoff on CJAD 800).
