GUELPH, ONT. - As if the Bombers hadn't suffered enough this season, Alouettes third-string quarterback Tanner Marsh hit Eric Deslauriers, of all people, with a 57-yard pass to set up the game-winning field goal against the B.C. Lions on Thursday night.

That put both the Alouettes and Tiger-Cats four points up on the cellar-dwelling Bombers in the East Division.

Head coach Tim Burke's reaction to Montreal's unlikely victory?

"Darn," he said. "That's the PG version."

Max Hall will be playing under his second offensive co-ordinator in his second career CFL start, but the former NFL pivot doesn't sound flustered with the situation.

"Coach has done such a good job of coaching us this week, making things simple, making the game plan fairly simple, things that we're good at and clearing up my reads," Hall said. "Yeah, it's tough when a new guy comes in and trying to get into his head, but he did a good job. We're all on the same page. We should play well."
