Regina — Alouettes, they are in the second half of the team I continue to prove that there isn't.

Montreal wasted a 13-11 half-time lead, outscoring 21-0 in the third quarter and Saturday in front of 27,717 Mosaic Stadium spectators. Defeated Saskatchewan Ruff Rider 41-20 at night. ..

Ars hit a half-time lead of10 points in Calgaryin the first game.

Ars man-handled arider at Molson Stadiumon June 23 for his first win of the season, but now has a 1-3 record. I am. Rider improved to 3-1.

Ars did not produce an aggressive touchdown until the fourth quarter on Walter Fletcher's 3-yard run. Chandler Worthy also returned an 84-yard kickoff for a touchdown, and David Kote added two field goals. Trevor Harris, which started the quarterback, was replaced by Vernon Adams Jr. in the second half of the fourth quarter.

Jamal Morrow has won a pair of rider touchdowns, and Quarterback Cody Fajardo has added a third. Mitchell Picton caught an 8-yard touchdown and Kian Schaffer-Baker scored with a 44-yard pass-and-rampley. Nick Marshall also returned a 90-yard intercept with a fourth-quarter score, and Brett Lauser kicked a 57-yard field goal.

Als is aggressive in his first possession, thanks to a 27-yard pass to Hergy Mayala and a 17-yard pass to Jake Wieneke, who returned to the active roster after missing a hamstring injury in last week's match. Did a great job. ..

Montreal eventually drove to the Riders' 3-yard line before quarterback Trevor Harris was dismissed by Anthony Lanier. This meant that the visitor had to settle for the 18-yard field goal of the trowel at 9:29. Ars has had great difficulty completing his drive this season.

Then the rider immediately designed an 8-play, 70-yard drive — thanks to a 40-yard pass to Tevin Jones. The series culminated at 13:35 with a touchdown pass to Fajardo's 8-yard Picton.

However, Worthy regained Ars' lead with a shocking kickoff return to the end zone. After the release of Torontolater in the training camp, theMontreal-signed worthy player became the first player in the team's history to return a touchdown kickoff in a series of games. He returned the opening kickoff of the score last week.

Harris failed at the beginning of the second quarter after being attacked by Lanier. The ball was recovered by Pete Robertson at Montreal 40. However, Ars was fortunate to limit the damage when Lauser's 48-yard field goal attempt was largely left behind in the single.

Worthy's 32-yard punt return put Ars in a scoring position at Saskatchewan 39. However, Montreal had to settle for the Kotefield goal again. At 10:21, we will provide the visitor with a lead of 13-8.

After the second half kickoff, things started to solve for Ars immediately. An unnecessary roughness penalty against Darius Williams placed the ball on the territory of Montreal. Two passes to Schaffer-Baker set Morrow's 12-yard off-tackle run for a 1:40 touchdown. The two-point conversion attempt failed, giving the rider a 17-13 lead.

Saskatchewan's 11-play, 69-yard drive was limited by Fajardo's 1-yard run at 7:26. This time the 2-point conversion was successful, giving the rider an advantage of 25-13. It was in this series that defensive tackle Michael Wakefield was automatically evacuated after being penalized for a second fraud.

Wakefield became the second Montreal player of the season after middleline backer Trewatson in Toronto last month.

After tailback Jeschrun Antowi groped for Ars' next belongings, Schaffer Baker scored a long pass and rampley on the right sideline at 9:42.

Ars was limited to attack play six times a quarter.

Fletcher's three-yard score at 5:28 in the final period brought Ars closer, but it was still difficult to overcome the margin, especially on the road.

Montreal says goodbye to next week's schedule before hosting Edmonton on July 14th.
