MONTREAL - With stars of the past like Ben Cahoon and Uzooma Okeke in the house, the Montreal Alouettes looked a little like the CFL East powerhouse they used to be. Terrell Suggs Jersey .Jonathan Crompton, who is starting to find his range at quarterback, threw touchdown passes to James Rodgers and Duran Carter as the Alouettes ended the injury depleted Calgary Stampeders six-game winning run with a 31-15 victory in the Hall of Fame game on Sunday.The victory allowed Montreal (4-8) to keep pace with Hamilton and Toronto atop the woeful CFL East Division with four wins.The race is tight, but we have to focus on ourselves, said Crompton, now 3-1 as a starter, including 3-0 at home, since taking over from injured Troy Smith. We control our own destiny.Crompton completed 20 of 28 passes for 220 yards and two TDs, and wasnt intercepted. It was perhaps Montreals best game of the season. They had no turnovers, took only five penalties and dominated time of possession at 36:54It comes with game experience, Carter said of Crompton. Working with us, throwing with us, and getting in a groove. We didnt have a whole training camp to work with him. Now, were just scratching the surface on what we can do.We feel were a good team and our record doesnt show it. Its our first time playing a complete football game. Weve got a lot of talent and, when we play a good game, this is what happens.Back-up quarterback Tanner Marsh also ran in a TD and Sean Whyte booted three field goals.Drew Tate, starting for the injured Bo Levi Mitchell, ran in a pair of TDs for Calgary (10-2).Calgary was also without star running back Jon Cornish, top receiver Marquay McDaniel and rush end Charleston Hughes. All four were hurt in a comeback win last week over Toronto.The Stamps erased a 15-1 Montreal lead to tie the game early in the second half, but the offence stalled and then coughed up turnovers on three consecutive possessions in the fourth quarter. Tate went 15-for-30 for 152 yards and was picked off once.Drew was like the rest of the team, he needs to play better, said Stampeders coach John Hufnagel. Im not pinning anything on Drew, but on offence, we needed to do a lot of things better.It was a combination of Montreal playing good defence and us not doing the things we need to do.As for the injuries to key players, Hufnagel said: Were not going to use that as an excuse. We needed to make plays with the people that were here.In Cornishs absence, Canadian Matt Walter rushed 13 times for an impressive 88 yards.The Stampeders ended a string of nine straight wins over Eastern teams. It was their first loss in six away games this season. The game featured a halftime presentation of the seven new members of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, with the biggest cheers for ex-Alouettes Cahoon, Okeke and Wally Buono (now GM in B.C.), as well as Charles Roberts, Neil Lumsden, Moe Racine and former university coach Larry Haylor. They were inducted at a Saturday night gala.The Alouettes took a 15-8 halftime lead, but were up against a team that roared back after a weak first half last week against Toronto.After a scoreless first quarter, Marsh scored from the one after Cromptons 22-yard completion to Carter highlighted a nine-play 65-yard drive 1:06 into the second.The teams exchanged punt singles before another drive ended with Rodgers 18-yard catch-and-run TD at 10:20.Tate found his passing range on the final drive of the half, and finished it himself with a one-yard plunge at 14:37.Calgary tied it on their first possession of the second half, as a 39-yard strike to Maurice Price set up Tates six-yard TD score on a quarterback draw.Crompton answered with a pair of scoring drives, one ending with an 18-yard Whyte field goal late in the third quarter and the other on Carters 10-yard catch over the middle 3:21 into the fourth.Geoff Tisdales interception set up Whytes 34-yard kick at 7:07. Walter fumbled on Calgarys next possession and Whyte was good from 27 yards. Then Tate fumbled. Alan-Michael Cash recovered both loose balls.Montreals defence was smarting from a loss last week in Edmonton in which it gave up 200 yards in the fourth quarter to waste a lead. Cash said they were determined not to let it happen again.It was a statement, said Cash. We watched film of the last game.We know we didnt perform in the fourth and we wanted to come out and do all we could not to blow it again.The team has a short turnaround before a game Friday night against the expansion Redblacks in Ottawa.The Stampeders return home to face B.C., the only other team to beat them this season, losing 25-24 to the Lions in Calgary on Aug. 1.The Alouettes lost defensive tackle Michael Klassen to a dislocated elbow in the second half.Notes a Montreal ended a seven-game losing streak to Western clubs. . . Marsh threw one pass, a 19-yard completion. . . Attendance was 19,892. Anthony Levine Sr. Jersey . The Mavericks avoided a season sweep by the Nuggets, who ran away with a win in Denver two weeks ago to hand Dallas its longest losing streak at three games. Dallas (42-28) got a boost in the playoff race when Miami rallied from seven down in the last 3 1/2 minutes to beat Memphis 91-86 Friday night. Marquise Brown Jersey . It was the start of one nice night for the goalie and the Minnesota Wild. Backstrom made 33 saves in his first win of the season and the Wild defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Saturday in a rematch of their first-round playoff series. http://www.customravensjersey.com/custom-domata-peko-sr-jersey-large-1273d.html . Detroits powerful offence made that unnecessary. Scherzer allowed two hits and struck out seven, and the Tigers backed their star right-hander with three early homers in an 8-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night.STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Joey Bosas Ohio States teammates had to tell the defensive tackle that hed just finished off Penn State with a sack in the second overtime. The sack on a fourth-and-5 play gave the No. 13 Buckeyes a 31-24 victory Saturday night. Bosa was the last to know. I was so tired I didnt even know it was a sack, said Bosa, who 2 1/2 sacks and finished with six tackles. The guys started hugging me and I just went to the ground. This might have been a double-overtime win, but it doesnt make it any less important, winning in a crazy environment like this. Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett had two touchdown runs in overtime after Penn State overcame a 17-0 deficit to tie it. There are no moral victories at Penn State, Nittany Lions coach James Franklin said. There never will be. The Buckeyes (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) built a 17-0 lead and were cruising when Penn State defensive tackle Anthony Zettel intercepted Barretts pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. Christian Hackenberg threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Saeed Blacknall early in the fourth, and Penn State (4-3, 1-3) tied it on Sam Fickens 31-yard field goal with 9 seconds left. It comes down to execution, Hackenberg said. Consistently, we executed better in the second half. Theres still a little bit of inconsistency there. I think we picked that up and that allowed us to get things going, he said. Hackenberg finished 31 of 49 for 224 yards and a touchdown. In the first overtime, Penn State tailback Bill Belton took a direct snap from the Wildcat formation and scored on a 1-yard run. The Buckeyes countered when Barrett carried two straight times, the first for 17 yards and the second 5 yards for a touchdown. Penn State was called for a personal foul on the touchdown, giving Ohio State the ball at the 12 to start the second overtime. With a third-and-2 from the 4, Barrett powered through the middle of Penn States defence for a touchdown. I just read the play each time (on the option), said Barrett, who rushed for 75 yards on 20 carries and completed 12 of 19 mostly possession-type passes for 74 more yards. They were giving us the inside. I was going to do whatever I had to do to get in the end zone. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 109 yards on 26 carries for Ohio State. The Buckeyes have won five straight games and 19 in a row in the conference. Nick Boyle Jersey. Its not luck. It was a tough game, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said. Penn State is a very rugged defensive unit. They play hard. If we would have not turned the ball over and took care of business, then wed see what would happen. But thats part of the game. DaeSean Hamilton set a Penn State record with 14 catches for 126 yards. Elliott opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 10-yard run, Sean Nuernberger made a 49-yard field in the second, and Barrett threw a 1-yard pass to Jeff Heuerman late in the quarter to make it 17-0. Penn State was hampered by two calls by officials that went against the Nittany Lions. In the first quarter, the officials ruled that Ohio States Vonn Bell intercepted Hackenbergs pass at the Penn State 39. The play was reviewed and the call was upheld. After the game, however, head referee John ONeill said the play wasnt thoroughly reviewed. The play, technically, was not thoroughly reviewed due to some technical difficulties with the equipment, he said. And, despite the fact that several replays on the Beaver Stadium video boards showed that the ball hit the ground, the referees were powerless to review them. The feeds that the replay team looks at are the feeds that you get at home. We cant deviate, ONeill said. We cant create our own rules. The replay rules are clear that we have to use the equipment provided. Another play that loomed large was Ohio States 49-yard field goal. Again, TV replays showed the clock with zeros for at least two or three seconds before Sean Nuernberger kicked the ball. ONeill said the officials didnt see that. And, as it turns out, that play isnt reviewable. That is not reviewable, in terms of when the ball is snapped in relationship to the zeros on the clock, replay official Tom Fiedler said. Penn State middle linebacker Mike Hull, who recorded a game-high 19 tackles, echoed Franklins sentiments. It definitely hurts a lot whenever you lose a close one like that, but Im really proud of the way our team came together in the second half and fought and battled, Hull said. No moral victories but I think were heading in the right direction. I think if we keep playing like this every week with that same type of effort and teamwork were going to be tough to beat in the next coming weeks. ' ' '
