The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS - THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

Dar­ian Du­rant threw touch­down passes to Ernest Jack­son and Ge­orge John­son as the Montreal Alou­ettes downed the vis­it­ing Toronto Arg­onauts, 21-9, in Cana­dian Foot­ball League ac­tion Fri­day night to snap their two-game los­ing skid.

The win pro­pelled the Alou­ettes (3-4) into first place in the East Di­vi­sion as the Arg­onauts (3-5) fell to sec­ond.

For­mer coach Marc Trest­man’s re­turn to Montreal was spoiled and ex­tended Toronto’s los­ing streak to three games.

Du­rant went 18-for-27 pass­ing for 237 yards and two touch­downs.

Boris Bede kicked three field goals.

Ar­gos kicker Lirim Ha­jrul­lahu kicked three field goals for Toronto, the vis­i­tors’ only points.

With start­ing quar­ter­back Ricky Ray in­jured, Trest­man gave the ball to 25-year-old Jeff Matthews. But Matthews threw for just 67 yards in the first half. Cody Fa­jardo, who re­placed him at half­time, went 10 for 16 and 75 yards.
