Eskimos Embarassed By 40-4 Loss To Montreal -- Full Coverage

Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo throws under pressure against the Edmonton Eskimos during first half CFL football action in Montreal on Sunday.

From The Edmonton Journal:

MONTREAL - Quarterback Anthony Calvillo picked apart the Edmonton defence with lightning-quck precision passes to direct the Montreal Alouettes to a 40-4 embarrassment of the Eskimos this afternoon in Montreal.

The Alouettes, first in the CFL east division, scored every time they had the ball in the first half to build up a 30-4 lead. By the time Calvillo left the game with three and a half minutes left he had completed 31 of 38 passes for 414 yards.

Surprisingly, he threw only two touchdown passes -- 58 yards to Jamel Richardson in the first half and 10 yards to Kerry Watkins in the second. Mike Imoh ran for two short touchdowns and Damon Duval kicked the remaining 16 points.

Edmonton's anemic offence managed only a 55-yard single and a 23-yard field goal,both by Noel Prefontaine in the first half. The Eskimos fall to 7-5 and slide into a tie with the B.C. Lions for last place in the west.
