OTTAWA - After a slow start to the season the Montreal Alouettes now find themselves the hottest team in the CFL. Adidas Evgeny Kuznetsov Jersey . Sean Whyte kicked three field goals and the Alouettes offence did just enough to earn a 23-17 win over the Ottawa Redblacks on Friday. After starting the season with seven losses in their first eight games, the Alouettes (8-8) have caught fire with five straight wins and just one loss in their past eight. They currently sit alone in first place in the East Division and a playoff berth that seemed highly unlikely two months ago is creeping ever closer to becoming reality. The Redblacks (2-14) missed an opportunity to put a bump in Montreals road to the playoffs, but they did provide an interesting end to a game that appeared as though it might be over early. An 11-yard touchdown pass from Jonathan Crompton to S.J. Green four minutes into the third quarter and an 11-yard field goal from Whyte at 6:29 gave the Alouettes a 23-7 lead, and apparent control of the game. A 22-yard field goal from Brett Maher late in the third quarter cut that lead to 23-10, but the Alouettes still maintained a comfortable two-score lead to start the fourth quarter. On their first possession of the fourth quarter the Redblacks needed just two plays to move the ball 102 yards for a touchdown. Danny OBrien, who had been trading snaps with Henry Burris throughout the game, connected on a 44 yard catch-and-run play with Wallace Miles and then found Scott MacDonell for a 58-yard touchdown pass. It was great to come back and contribute to the team and have the boys rally around me, MacDonell said. But we really wanted that win and we were close. We had our chances and its unfortunate but we just have to keep climbing, keep working, get rid of the little mistakes and get ready for next week. Minutes later Brandon London made a diving catch for the Alouettes, but when he got to his feet he was stripped of the ball and it was recovered by Ottawa. The ruling on the field was that he was down by contact. After a lengthy review that call on the field was confirmed, but Ottawa coach Rick Campbell threw a challenge flag having been told from his staff up in the booth that London was never touched. That challenge was rejected and Montreal retained possession and proceeded to drive the field while eating up valuable minutes before punting. I wanted to make sure they took a good look at it, Campbell said. I havent seen all the angles so Im not going to criticize it but Ill have to see all the angles to see if there was undisputable evidence. But our guys fight and Im proud to coach these guys and they keep battling. We need to graduate into closing out games and winning some of these close games. The Redblacks could do nothing with their final two possessions, though, and the Alouettes ran out the clock for the victory. Montreals Crompton finished the game 17 of 29 for 216 yards with one touchdown and one interception. After an emotional ceremony honouring two Canadian soldiers killed this week — Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent Monday outside of Montreal and Cpl. Nathan Cirillo Wednesday at the War Memorial in Ottawa — both offences seemed inspired to start the game. The Redblacks took the opening possession 74 yards on eight plays, ending with a five-yard touchdown pass from Burris to Marcus Henry for a 7-0 lead. Not to be outdone, the Alouettes took their first possession from their own 13-yard line to the Ottawa end zone to tie the game. During that drive the Alouettes got two big passing plays as Crompton connected with London and Green for strikes of 20 and 32 yards respectively while Tyrel Sutton had a 24-yard run. The big play for the Alouettes though, came on a challenge from coach Tom Higgins, as an incomplete pass that would have led to third down was overturned on a defensive pass interference call giving the Alouettes a first down. On the next play Tanner Marsh ran the ball in from the one-yard line for a touchdown. What followed for the rest of the first half was a complete lack offence from both sides, more so from the Redblacks than the Alouettes. Ottawa lost two fumbles and threw two interceptions, one each from Burris and OBrien, who was trying to throw the ball away on his first play of the game after coming in for Burris. Turnovers are one of the key ingredients that allow you to win, Higgins said. Burris went 12 of 21 for 110 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. OBrien finished the game 3 of 5 for 111 yards with one touchdown and one pick. The Alouettes did manage to block a punt that gave them field position on the Ottawa side of the field, but were only able to get a 41-yard field goal from Whyte at 11:26 of the second quarter. Whyte then kicked a kicked 14-yard field goal in the final minute to give the Alouettes a 13-7 lead at the half. After the game Higgins was very complementary towards the Redblacks organization and what they have accomplished on and off the field. I know theyre very disappointed (with their record) but this franchise should be very proud of itself with what theyve been able to do with the facilities and with the fan support they have, Higgins said. I though what they put together in very short notice to honour our two fallen soldiers was beautiful, so hats off to the Ottawa Redblacks. They have a very competitive and entertaining football team and that bodes well for the CFL. Burris also reflected on the events of the week leading up to the ceremony before the game. The guys in the locker room care about the people in this city and to go through that experience. There were a lot of emotions and you could feel the pain in the city and all we wanted to do was help alleviate it. Adidas Andre Burakovsky Jersey . Moments after scoring and setting off another wild celebration at Minsk arena, Platt leapt into the arms of Belarusian captain Alexei Kalyuzhny.

Connor Cook went 13-for-25 for 180 yards with one touchdown and one interception for the Spartans (10-2, 7-1 Big Ten), who won their final three games after a loss to Ohio State kept them from battling for the Big Ten championship. I thought that was a tremendous job by our football team today, said Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio. The benchmark has become 10 wins at Michigan State four out of the last five years so a tremendous accomplishment by them. Akeel Lynch had a rushing touchdown while Christian Hackenberg was 21-for-45 for 195 yards along with an interception and a lost fumble for the Nittany Lions (6-6, 2-6), who lost their last two games of the regular season. I think the game really just comes down to we had an opportunity to make some plays, said Penn State head coach James Franklin. We werent able to do that and had some critical mistakes. It didnt take long for the Spartans to take the lead, as R.J. Shelton broke a couple of tackles on the opening kickoff and raced down the right side for a 90-yard score and a 7-0 lead. Penn State attempted a 51-yard field goal on its ensuing possession, but Sam Ficken was well short, and Michigan State took advantage of the short field to get a 36-yard field goal from Michael Geiger with 8:41 to play in the first. The Lions had to punt on their next touch, and the Spartans were able to move 58 yards over the next nine plays. The drive stalled at the Penn State 22, and Geigger hit a 39-yard field goal for a 13-0 lead late in the first. Adidas T.J. Oshie Jersey. Benefiting in field position after exchanging punts, the Lions were able to get on the board as Ficken was good from 41 yards out to make it a 13-3 game with 4 1/2 minutes to play in the half. The Lions then had a chance to cut further into their deficit as Anthony Zettel picked off a Cook pass. Getting down to the Michigan State 23, Hackenberg threw a pass into the end zone that was tipped into the hand of Trae Waynes as the Spartans held on to a 10-point lead at the break. Penn State had to punt on the opening possession of the second half, with the Spartans getting the ball back at their own 37. Cook completed passes of 25 yards to Keith Mumphery and 31 yards to Macgarrett Kings Jr. to get the ball to the PSU 5, and Langford ran it in from three yards out on third down for a 20-3 lead. Hackenberg had the ball stripped out of his hands on the Lions ensuing touch, and Michigan State recovered at the PSU 18. Five plays later, Cook found Tony Lippett in the end zone for a 27-3 lead. The Lions answered the score with one of their own, as the team moved 79 yards over 10 plays, with Lynch taking an inside handoff three yards into the end zone to make it a 27-10 game late in the third quarter. Penn State later failed on a 4th-and-20 in its own territory, and Langford put the game away with a 6-yard score. Game Notes Langford eclipsed 100 yards for a ninth straight game, eclipsing his own school record ... The series between these two schools now sits at 14-14-1 ... Michigan State controlled the ball for almost 35 minutes. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
