Shiltz leads Alouettes to win over Redblacks


OTTAWA—Matthew Shiltz threw one touchdown pass and ran for another, while David Cote kicked three field goals in the Montreal Alouettes’ 27-16 win over the Redblacks on Saturday.

Montreal improved to 5-4 and assumed sole possession of second place in the East Division with a second straight win over Ottawa, now 2-8. The Alouettes amassed 393 yards of offence compared to 242 for the

Redblacks, who started the game with Caleb Evans at quarterbac­k but went to Taryn Christion in the fourth quarter.

Christion was knocked out of the game on a sack with 1:33 to play. Montreal’s defence recorded 10 sacks.

Ottawa also lost kick-returner DeVonte Dedmon (right ankle), arguably the Redblacks’ best player this season, who put no weight on his right leg as he was helped off the field in the second quarter. He returned to Ottawa’s sideline with a walking cast and crutches.
