Brady outduels Burris as Alouettes edge Stampeders

Jan 9, 2008 - 6:04 PM
CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- Backup quarterback Marcus Brady passed for 260 yards and a touchdown as the Montreal Alouettes edged the Calgary Stampeders, 33-32, on Saturday.

Brady completed 16-of-23 attempts for Montreal, which clinched a playoff spot and finished third in the East Division standings.

The Alouettes also played without starting quarterback Anthony Calvillo, who left the team to be with his ailing wife. She was diagnosed on Thursday with B-cell lymphoma, a treatable form of cancer. She began chemotherapy treatments and will later undergo radiation therapy.

Brady, who is the team's third quarterback, replaced Jason Maas and immediately engineered a seven-play, 98-yard drive that was capped by an eight-yard touchdown run by Avon Cobourne to put Montreal up, 17-9.

After Henry Burris threw the second of his three TD passes to cut the Calgary deficit to 17-16, Brady drove his team 68 yards in four plays, finishing the drive with a 32-yard touchdown strike to Kerry Carter to help the Alouettes take a 24-19 halftime lead.

Damon Duval kicked two of his four field goals in the third quarter to give Montreal a 30-22 lead entering the final period. His 42-yarder with 12:51 remaining finished the scoring for the Alouettes.

Burris' third touchdown pass went to Nik Lewis from 36 yards out with 4:25 left to pull Calgary within a point, but his final pass was intercepted by linebacker T.J. Hill on the Montreal 30 to end the game.

Burris went 25-of-45 for 381 yards and also threw three interceptions.
