The Alouettes demonstrated an amazing reversal of form from last Sunday when the Argos won 32-5. "This is what we said Als' coach Sam Etchev- erry, whose team earlier in the week was reported to be riddled with dissension. "This was our high point of the season. We should be all right now." HAVE TWO LEFT Both Montreal and Ottawa clubs have two games remain- ing in the schedule. Argonauts' coach Leo Cahill offered few excuses for the To- ronto defeat before fans. "It was just a bad effort on our he said. "It was still a ball game until the third quarter and then we went flat." The Montreal triumph seemed all the more astonishing be- cause it was accomplished with rookie quarterback Jim Chasey at the helm in the absence of Sonny Wade, out with an in- jured shoulder. His skill at picking Argos' secondary apart with short-yar- dage passes set up the first Montreal touchdown, a one-yard leap into the end zone by full- back Bruce Van Ness, who had a busy day, gaining 113 yards in. 20 carries. DEFENCE SPARKS ALS But it was the defence that sparked Als as linebacker Mark Kosmos and Mike Widger scored their other two touchdowns. Justine Canale's field goals of 35 and 31 yards and two con- verts, plus a fourth-quarter safety touch, completed the Montreal scoring. The Toronto touchdown was scored by Mel Profit on a pass from quarterback Joe Theis- mann in the third quarter Theis- mann got the other point for Argos on an unusual convert, running the ball over after Ivan MacMillan faked a kick. Quarterback Greg Barton and running back Leon MeQuay re- turned to the Toronto lineup after suffering injuries. Barton alternated with Theismann for three quarters and then retired from the game. In the final minute of the game, three players were ejected: Montreal tight end Peter Dalla Riva and Toronto's Gene Mack and Larry Brame, after a melee near the Argos' bench. Players from both teams milled about after Mack cracked his fist off Moses Den- son's helmet. MONTREAL 28 TORONTO 7 MTL. TOR.
