Lomachenko, from the Ukraine, could have won the WBO title in his second pro fight,

MONTREAL -- The losing skid is over and the Montreal Alouettes have their defence to thank. Tug McGraw Jersey . Led by CFL tackles leader Chip Cox, the Alouettes held the slumping Saskatchewan Roughriders to 15 yards on the ground, picked off three Darian Durant passes, sacked him four times and stuffed a third-and-one attempt on the goal line in their 17-12 victory on Sunday. "We win and lose as a team," said Cox, who picked off Durant in the end zone to stop Saskatchewans final drive and secure the win. "The team needed that from us today and thats what we did. "The teams been needing that from us for the last few weeks and we havent been able to pull it through for them. Today, we did and we got the W." Duron Carter scored the only touchdown for Montreal (5-8), which ended a three game losing run. The slotback was named the star of the game as he caught six passes for 152 yards, including a 45-yard effort to set up one of three Sean Whyte field goals. Weston Dressler had the lone TD for the Roughriders (8-5), who lost a fourth game in a row. The highlight for the visitors came about 10 minutes into the opening quarter, when slotback Geroy Simon made history by hauling in his 1,018th career reception, breaking the record of former Alouette Ben Cahoon. He ended the game with 1,020. A message of congratulations from Cahoon was shown on the scoreboard, but the Riders will wait until they are at home Oct. 12 against Edmonton to celebrate his feat. Simon was in no mood for that after the game. "Were just not executing now," the 15-year veteran said. "The defence is holding up their part of the bargain by holding them to minimal points, but I can only speak for the offence. "Were just not making plays we need to make. The leaders have to lead. We just have to figure it out. We have to take a long look in the mirror and ask if were doing everything we need to win." Despite near-perfect sunny weather and the largest crowd of the year at Percival Molson Stadium of 24,105, neither team used the conditions to move the ball consistently. Durant completed 24 of 46 passes for 339 yards, but he missed open receivers repeatedly and threw the three picks. Chris Garrett, filling in for injured running back Kory Sheets, gained nine yards on five carries. The Riders have not won in three games since Sheets sprained his right knee against Toronto. Alouettes quarterback Josh Neiswander was good on 21 of 36 passes for 264 yards. He was not intercepted and was never sacked. Montreals woes came from dropped passes and some bumbling moments on special teams. But the defence erased any errors. After Whyte tied the game at 1-1 late in the first quarter, Durant hit Chris Getzlaf with a 70-yard pass that gave the Roughriders first down inside the five. The Alouettes defence stopped all three attempts and took over the ball at the one. Montreal conceded a safety, and Saskatchewan threatened again when it got the ball back, only to see Geoff Tisdale pick off a pass in the end zone. Another Roughriders drive at the end of the third quarter was stopped by a leaping, one-handed interception by Jerald Brown. Troy Smith, now the backup with both Anthony Calvillo and Tanner Marsh injured, got in for two plays in the third and nearly produced a score, but Jerome Messam was stripped of the ball near the goal by Terrell Maze after a long run off a screen pass. The win took some pressure off the Alouettes, who went into the weekend in danger of being caught by the Eskimos for a crossover playoff position, with a showdown coming on Saturday in Edmonton. The Eskimos loss to the Argonauts on Saturday, coupled with the Alouettes win gives Montreal a four-point cushion, each with five games left to play. "The pressures still on us," said Cox. "We need to win more games. "Were not in the playoffs, so we cant just go home and relax. We have to play even better next week (Saturday in Edmonton) to get another W." The Alouettes led 4-3 at the intermission, but Ricky Schmitt tied the game with one of his three punt singles on the opening drive of the second half. Neiswander hit Carter with a short pass and saw the slotback zig-zag his way for a 45-yard touchdown at 13:12 of the third quarter. Durant struck back to open the fourth, as he hit Taj Smith, Simon, and Dressler with passes before finding Dressler uncovered at the Montreal goal-line to tie the game at 3:05. Montreal went ahead on Whytes 40-yard boot at 6:18. After another Rider single, Whyte hit from 19 yards with 1:32 left to play. Lenny Dykstra Jersey . The Raptors have been outscored 88-66 in the opening quarter over a three-game span to begin the month of February. Their most recent loss, 109-101 in Sacramento on Wednesday, was eerily similar to Saturdays defeat at the hands of the Trail Blazers. Mitch Williams Jersey .C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have activated defenceman Joni Pitkanen from injured reserve. http://www.baseballphilliesofficial....n-jersey-c-27/ . Vonn "reopened" the idea of competing in the season-opening World Cup event on Oct. 26-27 in Soelden, Austria after returning to the slopes last month in Portillo, Chile.SAN ANTONIO -- Mexicos Orlando Salido outpointed two-time Olympic champion Vasyl Lomachenko in a featherweight bout Saturday night at the Alamodome after losing his WBO title when he failed to make weight. Salido (41-12-2) had winning scores of 116-112 and 115-113, and the third judge scored it 115-113 for Lomachenko. Lomachenko, from the Ukraine, could have won the WBO title in his second pro fight, but it remained vacant his loss. Lomachenko, 1-1 as a pro after going 397-1 as an amateur, earned an eextra $15,000 for keeping the fight after Salido came in over the 126-pound class limit. Chuck Klein Jersey. Salido kept his body close on Lomachenko, and aimed punches at the challengers belt. He was cautioned on occasion to bring them up. Lomachenko showed little power through much of the fight, yet he kept it close with his boxing skill. But there were so many occasions that Lomachenko had to pull and push away from Salido that he used as much effort getting away as he did throwing punches.
