#1 with a turnover score of its own when corner von lebaobei123 20.04.2019 03:59

MONTREAL -- Alouettes quarterback Jonathan Crompton overcame the loss of a loved one to lead his team to victory. After an abysmal first half, Crompton helped Montreal to a come-from-behind 38-31 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Percival Molson Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Crompton divulged Saturday that his former fiancee, who had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer earlier this season, died Friday. Crompton was planning to head home to Tennessee after the game to be with her family. "This was not the best week for myself personally," said the Als quarterback, who had been growing his hair for the Locks for Love charity. "Thats the reason this is a team game. The guys came out and said, We got you. Go out there and be yourself. Emotionally, just let it out. They had my back." Crompton finished 18-of-27 passing for 205 yards with a TD and interception in his second straight start for Montreal, which scored four unanswered touchdowns and outscored Hamilton 31-10 in the second half to secure the victory. "A lot of adversity was thrown young Jonathan Cromptons way, and he dealt with it," said Als coach Tom Higgins. "Sometimes, what people dont know is that (athletes) have lives, and other things happen within their life, and it was a tragic thing that he had to deal with. "We truly feel that he always has the temperament to turn it around, no matter how bad hes playing. Thats a sign of a good quarterback, one that has a short memory." Montreal trailed 24-10 when Billy Parker intercepted a pass from Hamiltons Zach Collaros and returned it 45 yards to the Ticats four-yard line at 9:10 of the third quarter. Four plays and a pass interference penalty later, backup quarterback Tanner Marsh scored on a one-yard run. That seemed to energize the Alouettes as three minutes later, Crompton put together his best drive of the game to make it 24-24. He had a 33-yard completion to Duron Carter and 42-yard toss to Chad Johnson, then finished the five-play, 98-yard drive with a 10-yard scoring strike to Carter. James Rodgers 82-yard punt return for a touchdown broke the deadlock in the fourth quarter before Marsh added his second rushing TD of the game with three minutes remaining. "The turning point was going in at halftime and regrouping," said Higgins. "We knew that we needed to help our offence, and we did. The defence came up. Our special teams helped out too. We played a pretty good football game. "It was really a quiet locker room. We knew we had to come out and do these things in order to give ourselves a chance to win. The athletes have responded. Theres never any yelling or any screaming." The Alouettes (3-7) earned their second straight win to move into a tie with idle Toronto atop the East Division. Hamilton (2-7), meanwhile, fell to third in the East, two points ahead of Ottawa. The Ticats were sitting pretty at the interval, up 14 points and en route to their second consecutive victory. But four second-half turnovers, including two lost fumbles and an interception, cost Hamilton the victory. Montreal scored a total 24 points off turnovers, including seven in the first quarter. "We gave too many points on turnovers," said Ticats head coach Kent Austin. "They killed us. You cant do it. You cant lose a turnover battle on the road and expect to win football games. You just cant do it. "We gave them points, and we gave them momentum in the second half. I told the team that until we learn to be a disciplined football team for four quarters with respect to turnovers in particular -- turnovers are killers -- its tough to win football games. It doesnt matter how well we play otherwise." Collaros finished the game 30-of-43 passing for 345 yards and added 35 rushing yards. "I dont think I can explain it yet," said Collaros, who threw a consolation touchdown pass to Andy Fantuz with 11 seconds remaining. "The defence played a great game, but we put them in some bad situations. Once Montreal got the momentum, it was hard to get anything going. We didnt execute like we should have in the second half." Montreal made the Ticats pay on their first turnover early in the game. Linebacker Winston Venable put the Alouettes in front 7-0 two minutes into the first quarter, returning Mossis Madus fumble 59 yards for the TD. Hamilton responded with a turnover score of its own when cornerback Rico Murray returned a Crompton interception 40 yards for the touchdown. Collaros then had a three-yard touchdown pass to Fantuz with time expiring in the first. It was a disastrous opening quarter for Montreal, which had no first downs and one yard of total offence. Justin Medlock added his second field goal of the game and a 53-yard single late in the second to put Hamilton ahead 21-7 at halftime. The two teams exchanged field goals in the third. "It means so much," said Carter, who finished the game with 56 receiving yards. "Especially in the division, and against Hamilton. We have a big rivalry against them. Late in the game, there was a lot of turmoil. Its a big game for us. We got the crowd going. All the momentum on the field makes us want to go score."

For the Blue Jays the time was Wednesday and the ace was R.A. Dickey. He stepped up. "I feel some responsibility as a stopper from time to time," said Dickey.Toronto FC officially unveiled English international striker Jermain Defoe and U.S. international midfielder Michael Bradley as its latest designated players on Monday morning in front of a boisterous crowd of supporters. Defoe, a 31-year-old striker, comes over from Tottenham Hotspur on a transfer believed to be somewhere in the neighbourhood of $10.8 million to $14.4 milion and an average yearly salary of a reported $8.3 million. Bradley, 26, heads to Toronto from Roma for a reported fee of $10 million and a salary of $7.1 million. "To acquire a star midfielder like Michael Bradley, seen by many as the top American player in the world, alongside Jermain Defoe, makes this a groundbreaking day for Toronto FC and for Major League Soccer," said Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president and CEO Tim Leiweke of the clubs signings. A visibly emotional Leiweke said that the investment came down to one question that the team had to ask. "Why cant we be great?" he added. "We didnt win anything today, but we created a great opportunity." Defoe, who will return to Spurs on loan until Feb. 28, spoke highly of the reception hes received so far in Toronto and spoke of his desire to hit the ground running. "I feel at home already," he said. "As players, all you want to do is put your boots on, get out there and let your football do the talking...I feel blessed and honoured and Im looking forward to it so much." Assked if a place on Englands 2014 World Cup squad weighed in on his decision to come to North America, Defoe admitted that playing time was his primary concern.dddddddddddd "Its important to be playing," he explained. "To get into a World Cup or European Cup squad, its based on merit...if selected, Ill be ready." Bradley, whose unveiling was not previously advertised by the club, returns to MLS for the first time since 2005. "I have never been more excited, and more motivated, for any challenge in my career," he said. "What theyre trying to build here in really special, something really unique and different from anywhere else in MLS and North American soccer." The team also announced that working agreements were in place with both Spurs and Roma that would result in both friendlies being played in Toronto and a player exchange with Roma that will result in Toronto FC players training with Roma. With Defoe and Bradley in the fold, Toronto FCs number of designated players stands at four - one more than the league-allowed three. With new Brazilian striker Gilberto signed in the fall, Argentinian midfielder Matias Laba is expected to be the odd man out. Toronto general manager Tim Bezbatchenko confirmed that Laba is still with the club and that a final roster did not have to be submitted until the middle of March. "Well be working through the next steps over the next month and a half," he said. ' ' '
