Calvillo surpasses 50,000 yards, Alouettes defeat Tiger Cats

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:11 PM HAMILTON, Ontario (Ticker) -- Anthony Calvillo reached a mark few have ever seen, and in the process, led his team to victory.

Calvillo passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns as the Montreal Alouettes posted a 29-20 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday.

The 34-year-old quarterback also became just the fourth in league history to surpass the 50,000-yard mark, joining a select group that includes Ron Lancaster, Damon Allen and Danny McManus.

Calvillo completed 27-of-37 attempts for Montreal (1-2), which won its first game of the season.

He reached his milestone with a 13-yard pass to Kerry Watkins early in the first quarter. It was two plays after he tossed a 29-yard TD pass to Watkins at the 12:51 mark of the opening period, giving the Alouettes a 7-0 lead.

Watkins hauled in seven catches for 99 yards.

Calvillo's second touchdown pass went to running back Mike Imoh from five yards out just 31 seconds into the second quarter, giving Montreal a 14-0 advantage.

With the Alouettes leading by nine in the third quarter, the 14-year veteran found wide receiver Danny Desriveaux from 19 yards out midway through the period to increase Montreal's bulge to 26-10.

After Hamilton cut the deficit to 26-20 with 10 points in the fourth quarter, Alouettes kicker Damon Duval booted a 27-yard field goal with 11 seconds remaining to seal the win.

Jason Mass was 15-of-28 for 211 yards with a touchdown and an interception, and rookie backup Tommy Chang went 4-of-11 for 71 yards and a score for the Tiger-Cats (0-3), who remain the only winless team in the CFL.
