VANCOUVER -- Travis Lulay threw for a touchdown and ran for another as the B.C. Lions beat the Montreal Alouettes 36-14 in CFL action Sunday. B.C. improved to 7-4 while avenging a last-second loss in Montreal on Aug. 22. The Alouettes, who were held scoreless in the first half and trailed throughout, fell to 4-7. Montreal suffered its 13th loss in its last 14 visits to Vancouver. Shawn Gore caught Lulays touchdown pass while Andrew Harris scored on a one-yard run. Marco Iannuzzi caught a TD pass from B.C. backup quarterback Thomas DeMarco late in the game. It was the first scoring strike of DeMarcos two-year CFL career. B.C.s other points came on a conceded safety and Paul McCallums two field goals and four converts. Montreals points came on touchdown receptions by S.J. Green and Brandon London. Both TD passes were thrown by Josh Neiswander, the third Alouettes quarterback used in the game. The Als recovered two fumbles, by Lulay and Harris, and also had an interception in the first half, but could not convert the turnovers into decent field position, let alone points. Jerald Browns interception was hampered by two unnecessary roughness penalties on the play. On one, Shea Emry unwisely nailed Lulay from behind as he was running down field. The Lions got on the scoreboard first as Montreal punter Sean Whyte conceded a safety. B.C. went 5-0 on a Paul McCallum 22-yard field goal in the first quarter increased its lead to 8-0 on another in the second quarter from 43 yards. After McCallums second field goal, Alouettes starting quarterback Jesse Marsh, who had burned the Lions in a last-second loss in Montreal in their previous meeting Aug. 22, was pulled in favour of Troy Smith, who won the 2006 Heisman Trophy. But Smith did little on only two running plays before B.C. got the ball again, and would be replaced by Marsh soon afterwards. Lulay completed a 58-yard pass to Courtney Taylor, who managed to stay in bounds after Chip Cox turned him around on the sideline but could not bring him down. One play later, Lulay threw a 14-yard touchdown strike to Gore, staking the Lions to a 15-0 lead. Two plays later, Jerome Messam dropped the ball on a forced fumble and B.C.s Cord Parks recovered. The Als gained a reprieve when Harris fumbled on a reverse on third-and-one to nullify a B.C. scoring drive with 28 seconds before half-time. But the Als ran out of time before they could get in scoring range. Lulay completed 18 of 22 passes in the first half for 198 yards. Marsh was good on just five of 11 for 54 yards. Lulays second interception of the game, by Mike Eden, set up Montreals first points late in the third quarter. Neiswander connected with Green on a 14-yard touchdown pass to Green. But more miscues on the Als next offensive series, in the closing seconds of the third quarter, aided B.C.s cause. Adam Bighill intercepted a Neiswander pass and returned it 44 yards. Messam brought him down shortly before the goal-line with a horse-collar tackle, and the penalty gave B.C. the ball at the Montreal one-yard-line. Harris promptly took a Lulay hand-off into the end zone, enabling the Lions to go up 22-7. Another Neiswander interception cost the Als again with just under five minutes gone in the fourth quarter as Marsh intercepted a pass thrown behind the receiver and took it into the end zone. However, Eric Taylor was called on an illegal block on the play, so B.C. had to settle for possession on Montreals three yard-line. After getting sacked on the next play, Lulay took the ball into the end zone to stake B.C. to a 29-7 advantage. Montreal closed the gap to 29-14 on its next series after Neiswander threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to London. But with the outcome not appearing in doubt, B.C. coach Mike Benevides decided to pull Lulay, who was shaken up when hit while scoring his touchdown. DeMarco reached his personal milestone as he found Iannuzzi for a 14-yard touchdown pass. Notes: Defensive lineman Chris Wilson played his first game for B.C. after signing as free agent last week. Its Wilsons second stint with the Lions. ... CFL commissioner Mark Cohon attended the game as part of a tour of CFL cities that he has been on lately. He said discussions on a new collective bargaining agreement with players will begin next spring. The current one is due to expire the day before training camps open. Cohon again faced questions about the CFLs handling of concussions in wake of the NFLs $765-million settlement of a lawsuit with former players. Contending protocols have long been in place, he said player safety remains an ongoing agenda item at CFL board of governors meetings. ... Legendary Lions receiver Willie Fleming and former radio play-by-play broadcaster J. Paul McConnell were among former B.C. greats honoured at half-time for their induction into the B.C. Football Hall of Fame. McConnell now lives in France and made the trip from Europe for the occasion. Cheap MLB Jerseys

. Yesterday Verlander came ever-so-close to recording the first perfect game in Tigers history, but instead he had to settle for the second no-hitter of his career as Detroit blanked Toronto by a score of 9-0. Now an even 3-3 on the campaign, Verlander eventually yielded a walk to Toronto rookie catcher J. BEAVER CREEK, Colo. -- Sandro Viletta of Switzerland has a fear of flying. Only, that anxiety doesnt carry over to ski racing. Viletta soared through a demanding Birds of Prey course on Saturday, flying over bumps on the super-G course and attacking sections of the hill few dared to challenge. When he crossed the finish line, Viletta glanced up at the scoreboard and quickly began pumping his ski poles in jubilation. He was flying quite high after his first World Cup win. Starting way back at 30th and with snow falling, Viletta held nothing back and finished in a time of one minute 18.71 seconds to overtake Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway by 0.20 seconds. Beat Feuz of Switzerland took third. Robbie Dixon of North Vancouver, B.C., was fourth, while Erik Guay of Mont-Tremblant, Que., was seventh. "Its a bittersweet day for me but I did everything I could," said Dixon, who sat out the second half of last season with a concussion. "To get a podium would have been a pretty special moment, especially with some of the stuff Ive had to go through over the last year. But Sandro had a wicked run. This is a big step for me in terms of building confidence." Dixons time of 1:19.02 looked good enough for the podium until Vilettas run knocked him into fourth. "Just amazing," Viletta said. "I had such a great run." A risk-filled run inspired by none other than Bode Miller. Viletta watched Miller attack the downhill course Friday on the way to a gutsy win in which the American refused to tap the brakes. Before pushing out of the starting gate, Viletta decided he was going to employ the same aggressive style as Miller. He was going to ski like Miller. Well, as much as anyone can at least. "To ski like him is not possible," Viletta said. "To risk a lot, its possible." On this day, Viletta did a better Miller impersonation than Miller could do himself. On this day, Millers hard-charging style led to an early mistake and he needed an acrobatic recovery just to stay on the course. Miller finished in 21st place, which was 1.40 seconds behind Viletta. Afterward, Miller said he had the right line. And if he couldve executed it properly, he might have been on the podium. Thats how well he was skiing. With Miller, its either feast or famine. Theres rarely anything in between. "Youve got to take a risk or you dont have a good chance," Miller told The Associated Press as made his way through the crowd and on down the hill after the race. &quoot;I was skiing well, but once you make that mistake there, its over.dddddddddddd. "I pushed everywhere, just one (bad) turn." Andrew Weibrecht had the top finish for the United States as he finished 10th. For Feuz, the beat goes on at Birds of Prey as he worked his way onto the podium for a second straight day. He was second in the downhill on Friday. "The snow really seems to suit us Swiss," Feuz said through a translator. It sure seems to as the team has made itself right at home at Birds of Prey. The fact the Swiss had two skiers on the podium hardly came as a surprise. But that one wasnt named Didier Cuche was a little startling. Cuche entered the race as one of the favourites, but he wound up ninth for a second straight day. Still, Cuche was quite pleased for his proteges. After all, they help keep the 37-year-old Cuche young and skiing fast. "The guys are pushing harder now," Cuche said. "Its good for the team." But the 25-year-old Viletta was beginning to feel a little left out of the fun. The teammates he had grown up with -- skiers such as Feuz, Carlo Janka and Daniel Albrecht -- were already in the World Cup win column. Viletta was still searching for his first podium, let alone victory. He kept a positive attitude, even with a balky back hampering him for a few years. Viletta just had a feeling this day was close. With the weather and the course precisely to his liking, Viletta let loose and picked up his first win. "I risked all at the top," said Viletta, whose previous best finish was fourth in a giant slalom nearly three years ago in Adelboden, Switzerland. "I just pushed as much I can." Just when Svindal was starting to think he had a win sewn up, along came Vilettas run. Although Svindal didnt ski all that well at the top, he wasnt fretting since no one really had. Austrias Georg Streitberger, the defending champion at this event, skied off early, as did Ted Ligety of the U.S. But once Svindal caught a glimpse of Viletta gliding through the top section of the hill so effortlessly, so smoothly, Svindal knew he was in trouble. Viletta had the top time through that demanding stretch and carried it on through to the finish. "The way Viletta skied that (top), he absolutely earned the victory," Svindal said. As a result of his first win, Viletta is hoping for a little perk on the flight home -- an upgrade to business class. Maybe riding in comfort will help ease his fear of flying. ' ' '
