MONTREAL -- A pair of big games from a pair of unlikely sources lifted the Montreal Alouettes to a 31-10 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday.
Running back Victor Anderson and kick returner Trent Guy each scored two touchdowns as the Alouettes took the battle for first place in the CFL East Division.
Montreal leads the Argonauts by four points with six regular season games left for both clubs.
Toronto went into Montreal looking to tie the Alouettes for the division lead and clinch the season series between the teams, but it was all Alouettes from an opening drive that saw Anderson score on a 40-yard pass and run.
Now the Alouettes hold the edge in the race for first place and the bye to the East final. They meet again Oct. 18 in Toronto.
“Our guys know this game didn't guarantee us anything,'' said Montreal coach Marc Trestman. “It didn't guarantee a championship or a bye week. If we're thinking farther ahead than Friday night (in Hamilton) we must be out of our minds.
“There are too many games left to play.''
