#1 Playing in his fourth quarterfinal of the season, von miaowang123 19.09.2019 05:53

MONTREAL - Its early in the CFL season to talk of a must win game, but thats how it may be for the Montreal Alouettes.The Alouettes and the Ottawa Redblacks are both 1-7 and are on extended losing streaks, but Ottawa is an expansion team that didnt have high expectations.A loss at home to the newcomers, their closest geographic rivals and a team they must beat to have any hope of taking a playoff spot in weak East Division, would be devastating for Montreal, although centre Luc Brodeur-Jourdain doesnt see it that way.For me, every game is a must win, said Brodeur-Jourdain. I dont see it as Ottawa is an expansion club so its a must-win.We must win every game. We must be there and clinch first place in the East and go into the playoffs with momentum. We have to get out of this black hole were in right now.The Alouettes face the Redblacks on Friday night at Percival Molson Stadium, where Ottawa beat them 26-10 in a pre-season game when Henry Burris went 17-for-22 and running back Chevon Walker scored three touchdowns.Montreal has lost six in a row, while Ottawas losing run is at five.The Alouettes return home after losses at Saskatchewan and Winnipeg in which the defence was mostly solid but the offence continued to struggle.The ongoing search for a replacement for retired future Hall of Famer Anthony Calvillo took another twist as former Edmonton Eskimo Jonathan Crompton showed some promise at quarterback when he replaced starter Alex Brink in the second quarter in Winnipeg.Crompton, the fourth pivot to see action this season, is to get is first CFL start against the Redblacks.The main difference is his level of communication during the game, said Brodeur-Jourdain. Hes communicating well, trying to be loud and clear.He shows a lot of confidence. But I honestly think the four quarterbacks we have are the same. We just need time to develop.Time is starting to run short. The game marks the end of the first half of the regular season for both teams.Luckily for them, the division is so awful that both teams as well as Hamilton are only four points behind first-place Toronto. It is looking almost certain that there will be a crossover team from the West in the East playoffs, so finishing in the top two is essential.Its been a shock for Burris.Ive been in this thing for 14 years and Ive never seen this type of discrepancy between the East and the West, he said. I thought Montreal, Toronto and Hamilton would be duking it out and wed be doing what we can to get better as the season went on.But well take this. There are enough games left in the season to overcome what weve done in the past and try to get ourselves going and make a run at the playoffs.The Alouettes may have caught a break when receiver Weston Dressler, cut this week after an NFL tryout, turned down Ottawas offer and returned to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Like Burris, Dressler has been particularly productive against Montreal in his career.The Redblacks are coming off losses at home of 32-7 last week against Calgary and 10-8 against Edmonton on Aug. 15. Their win was over Toronto by 18-17 at home on July 18.Now they have a shot at a first road victory against a struggling team.Both sides know this is a big game, said Burris. Its a great opportunity for each team to get momentum on their side.Both teams are looking for a positive spark. Of course, we feel were the team that deserves it, but its all about which team gets the job done. Montreal and us are in the same situation and are working our butts off to get up off this doormat.The Alouettes have not lost more than 10 games in a season since they returned to Montreal after a 10-year hiatus in 1996, but they will need a major turnaround to avoid that.Fans are losing patience with the quarterbacks and first-year coach Tom Higgins, and the shouts for change will grow louder with another loss.Technically, it may not be a must-win, but it certainly feels like it.I can say we played our best football the last two games, said Higgins. Yeah, theyre an expansion team, but they have a more experienced quarterback than we do.Were at home. We have to win at home. We have to beat an eastern club and get on the winning side of some games. So we can call it whatever we want. Were going to line up and try to win a game. Air Force 1 Kaufen Deutschland .

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- While top-seeded Novak Djokovic had a rest day when opponent Mikhail Youzhny became ill and withdrew from their quarterfinal on Thursday, Roger Federer had to play his way into their semifinal date at the Dubai Championships. The fourth-seeded Federer, who has won this title five times, won his 40th match at the Dubai Championships with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic. Federer made a slow start, falling behind 2-0 but quickly rebounded by winning the next six games. In the second set, Federer broke serve in the third and fifth games. "When you play someone for the first time, you never quite know what his best level is or his normal level is," Federer said. "Thats why you kind of keep pushing on, and thats also why I guess the score came out the way it did, because I never let go." Federer holds a slim 16-15 winning record over Djokovic. The Serbian, however, has beaten Federer in their last three matches, and nine of their last 12 meetings. "He is in the semis, hes already played two matches, hes been here long enough for preparing, and hes fit enough for anything anyway," Federer said of Djokovic having a quarterfinal walkover. "Every match you can get away from is a good one. "For me, it was important also probably not to be out there for three hhours.dddddddddddd Then it would have been a disadvantage. But I think were back on even terms for tomorrow." The other semifinal will feature third-seeded Tomas Berdych against seventh-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany. Playing in his fourth quarterfinal of the season, Kohlschreibers 6-2, 6-3 win over Tunisian wild card Malik Jazirivictory was his 300th match-win on the ATP Tour. Berdych holds a 7-1 winning record over Kohlschreiber. "The record is one thing, but then always the match is going to start from zero," Berdych said. "I have seen Philipp play here and hes playing really well. "Hes playing very aggressive, very confident, too." Berdych, who was a finalist last year, fought past fifth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-4, 6-3. Berdych was on a 10-match winning streak, which includes his win at the Rotterdam tournament two weeks ago. The first set stayed on serve until Tsonga dropped his at love in the 10th game. The second set was even more tightly contested. In the fifth game, Berdych faced four break points but held on. Tsonga surrendered his serve in the eighth game when he double-faulted on break point. "It was very close," Berdych said. "I faced many break points which was very tough, but that was really the key of todays game, that I managed to save them." ' ' '
