MONCTON, N.B. -- It was an impressive CFL debut for rookie Brett Lauth

MONCTON, N.B. -- It was an impressive CFL debut for rookie Brett Lauther. The native of Truro, N.S., booted four field goals -- including two in the decisive fourth quarter -- as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated the Montreal Alouettes 28-26 on Saturday. Hamilton had placed Lauther on its practice roster after selecting the former Saint Marys Huskies kicker in the seventh round of the 2013 CFL draft. But he was promoted to the active roster to replace incumbent Luca Congi, who was benched after missing two field goals in last weekends 26-22 loss to Calgary. Lauther made good on his opportunity, making all four of his attempts. "I dont care about the stats," he said. "We got the win, thats all I really care about. "It was extra special that family and friends were in the crowd." Hamilton coach Kent Austin was definitely impressed with the rookie kicker but not surprised. "He has a past of making big kicks," Austin aid. "Thats kind of his M.O." Hamilton rallied for the victory by outscoring Montreal 15-7 in the fourth. Dan LeFevours one-yard TD run anchored the rally, which also included Lauthers field goals and a safety. The Ticats (6-6) erased a 19-13 third-quarter deficit en route to moving four points ahead of third-place Montreal (4-8) in the East Division standings. Hamilton improved to 2-0 at Moncton Stadium after downing Calgary 56-36 in 2011. LeFevours TD put the Ticats ahead 22-19 and was set up by Louie Richardsons recovery of Tyron Carriers fumble on a punt return. Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris appeared in his second Touchdown Atlantic game. Burris finished 15-of-27 for 176 yards and an interception as the Ticats earned their fifth win in seven games. "I think weve been improving and really thats all we really focus on. " Austin said. "They play with great effort and have a ton of fight in them." Montreal made it interesting as Josh Neiswander found Duron Carter on a 27-yard TD strike - Neiswanders second of the game - with under a minute remaining. But Hamilton recovered the onside kickoff to cement the victory. Neiswander was 26-of-36 passing for 294 yards with no interceptions. Prior to Saturdays game, the Alouettes placed rookie Tanner Marsh (thumb) on the nine-game injured list, joining veteran Anthony Calvillo (concussion) to solidify Neiswanders status as Montreals clear-cut starter. Jim Popp, Montreals GM and interim head coach, said Neiswander played well. "Hes got a real sense of running our offence," Popp said. "We did things to simplify our offence. "I thought this was one of our better games at sustaining drives." Despite the loss, Popp found some positive in the game. "The final score wasnt good but there was a lot of good in the game," he said. "Maybe the first game this year that we didnt turn the ball over on offence." Troy Smith and S.J. Green scored Montreals touchdowns. Sean Whyte added a convert and two field goals. Montreal opened the third impressively, with Smith, a former Heisman Trophy winner at Ohio State, scoring on a one-yard TD run to put the Alouettes ahead 16-13 as the convert was blocked. After Lauther opened the scoring in the first, Montreal took a 7-3 lead when Neiswander found Green on a 33-yard TD strike to cap a nine-play, 80-yard drive with the wind. Lauthers 40-yard field goal on the final play of the second quarter staked Hamilton to a 13-10 halftime lead. The Ticats opened the frame with the wind advantage and used a little razzle-dazzle to take a 10-7 advantage. Hamilton lined up for the field goal but after taking the snap, new holder Andy Fantuz flipped the ball to Beswick, who rumbled 10 yards for the TD. Usually on converts, punter Josh Bartel holds for the Ticats. Popp said he saw the play coming but the Alouettes still couldnt stop it. "We were yelling and screaming,"he said. "When theyre that far down there and its only five yards to get a first down, they may take a chance." Austin said the Ticats have been practising the fake for some time but were waiting for the perfect time to use it. "It wasnt a sure thing, we had to execute it," he said. "We wanted it to be close, we didnt want to do it on a 43 or a 47-yarder." Montreals defence held Hamilton to 288 total yards but the Ticats won the special-teams battle. Alouettes linebacker Chip Cox, the CFLs leading tackler, had seven tackles and an interception.

TORONTO -- Carter Ashton received the call Saturday night that no player wants. However, after being told he was being demoted, the 22-year-old made the best of his return to the American Hockey League by scoring the game-winning goal as the Toronto Marlies edged the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs 2-1 on Sunday. Despite Ashtons disappointment of being sent down after playing nine games with the Maple Leafs, Marlies head coach Steve Spott was pleased with the power forwards mindset heading into his first AHL game of the season. "He was good. He went right with Trevor (Smith) and with Spencer (Abbott) on that first line and I thought he had a heck of a game," said Spott. "He was just a dominant player out there. He played 5-on-5, killed penalties and was good at the net front on power play. "Its great to see when he comes down. It sends the right message for our young guys." Toronto took a 2-0 lead at 5:30 of the second period when Ashton put home an Abbott rebound while on the power play. "Abbott stood on the half wall and just walked it to the net," said Ashton of the goal. "I knew the puck might come out and I got a good rebound, right on my stick." T.J. Brennan also scored for the Marlies (4-1-0), who are unbeaten in four games at the Ricoh Coliseum this season, and goaltender Drew MacIntyre made 17 saves for the victory. Mike Blunden scored the lone goal for the Bulldogs (1-1-2), who were held to just nine shots through the final 40 minutes. Robert Mayer stopped 26 shots in defeat. Hamilton cut Torontos lead in half 2:08 into the third period on Blundens second goal of the season. The Bulldogs pulled theirr goaltender with less than a minute remaining, but could not find the equalizer.dddddddddddd Ashton had an excellent chance to get Toronto on the board 6:55 into the first period when he was awarded a penalty shot, however Mayer stopped him. "I was thinking about trying to fake a shot and open him up somewhere and I tried going five hole, but he dropped pretty quick," Ashton said. Brennan opened the scoring with his league-leading eighth goal of the season, on the power play, at 8:29 of the first period. With Erik Nystrom off serving a tripping penalty, Brennan one-timed a John-Michael Liles feed past Mayer. Near the midway mark of the opening period, Hamiltons Gabriel Dumont hit Torontos Jerry DAmigo hard, from behind. DAmigo remained down for a moment, but was able to skate off under his own strength. Dumont was assessed a minor penalty for boarding. Thirty seconds later, Nathan Beaulieu went to the box for shooting the puck over the glass giving the Marlies an extended 5-on-3 opportunity, but Toronto was unable to capitalize. Toronto finished 2-for-8 on the power play, but was unable to score with a two-man advantage in first period, which has become an early-season trend for the club. "The challenge for me is still that 5-on-3," he said. "Weve got to find a way to punish teams 5-on-3. We were up 1-0 when we had the extended 5-on-3 and we didnt get it done. Thats an area weve got to continue to focus on." Notes: Bulldogs forward Martin St. Pierre missed his second straight game with a lower-body injury. The Maple Leafs assigned Carter Ashton, Trevor Smith and David Broll to the Marlies Sunday morning.
