Calvillo propels Alouettes past Tiger-Cats

Jun 27, 2008 - 5:09 AM
HAMILTON, Ontario (Ticker) -- Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo entered his name into the record books on Thursday night.

Calvillo threw for two touchdowns and 293 yards as the Alouettes posted a 33-10 rout over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in both teams' season opener.

Calvillo's performance moved him into second place on the all-time passing list with 53,343 yards over his 15-year career. He completed 25-of-37 passes on Thursday, helping Montreal coach Marc Trestman win his CFL debut.

Kerry Watkins led all Alouettes receivers with six catches for 102 yards and two TDs, but it was Jason Armstead's 32-yard catch in the third quarter that pushed Calvillo past Danny McManus (53,255 yards). Damon Allen is pro football's career passing leader with 72,381 yards.

The Tiger-Cats' only touchdown came on a 75-yard run by Tre Smith in the fourth quarter.
