Le ROUGE et NOIR perdent une deuxième fois de suite contre les Als

The Ottawa REDBLACKS were swept by the Montreal Alouettes in their current home and home split, as well as the season series, Thanksgiving Monday, falling 29-3 on the road.

The loss officially eliminated Ottawa from playoff contention.

Despite early big defensive plays; in Bryce Carter’s 12th sack of the season, and Brandin Dandridge’s fifth interception (both marks second-highest in the CFL), the Alouettes combined an early rouge with a 38-yard touchdown pass from Cody Fajardo to Tyson Philpot, holding an 8-0 lead early in the second quarter, that they would take into the half.

6:53 into the third, Caleb Evans snuck a touchdown across the Ottawa goalline, and Jose Maltos added a field goal soon after, to make it an 18-0 game.

An Als scoop-and-score defensive touchdown by Tyrice Beverette all but put a bow on the game for Montreal, though Michael Domagala broke the shutout bid with a 21-yard field goal for the REDBLACKS.

The REDBLACKS play their final road game, and penultimate game of the 2023 season, against the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday, at 7:00pm.
