Late TD by McPherson gives Alouettes fourth straight win

Aug 30, 2008 - 6:22 AM
MONTREAL (Ticker) -- Adrian McPherson's one-yard touchdown run with 1:24 remaining in the fourth quarter led the Montreal Alouettes to their fourth straight victory, a 30-25 triumph over the B.C. Lions on Friday.

Montreal's backup quarterback, McPherson came off the bench to provide the decisive score, which erased a 25-22 deficit. Damon Duval recorded a 74-yard single moments later to push the Alouettes' lead to 30-25, and B.C.'s Buck Pierce fumbled at the Montreal 1 as time expired.

Anthony Calvillo completed 20-of-35 passes for 231 yards and a touchdown for the Alouettes (6-3). Avon Cobourne carried 16 times for 100 yards and a score, while Jamal Richardson had eight receptions for 114 yards and a TD.

Pierce was 38-of-48 for 406 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while also running for a score. Geroy Simon and Stefan Logan each eclipsed 100 yards in receiving while Kahlil Hill and Rufus Skillern had TD catches for the Lions (4-5), who committed five turnovers in losing for the third time in four games.
