Some things worth noting ...

GOING THREE WAYS: Jason Armstead had a strong day on both offence (6 catches, 94 yards) and special teams (6 kick returns, 158 yards), but he also helped Ottawa to three points with a play that would make any DB proud. With Joseph tossing a pass to the end zone toward two Als and nowhere near a Renegade, Montreal's Darrel Crutchfeld was about to intercept when Armstead hustled over to crash into him, knocking the ball incomplete. Matt Kellett kicked a 14-yard field goal on the next snap.

ROOKIE SENSATION: Part of the reason fourth-round pick Cory Hathaway is so highly thought of: Knowing full well he was about to get his bell rung by Als cornerback Ricky Bell, the Ottawa fullback reached up for a Joseph pass and pulled it at the Montreal three for a key, 26-yard gain.

SOUNDS OF SLY: Public address announcer Sylvain Laundry had a rough day, making a list of gaffes. After he incorrectly said a 75-yard Damon Duval kickoff that went through the end zone was a single point, then later corrected himself, the headache Herb Zurkowsky was working through throbbed hardest. "You %$*&# idiot," the Gazette football writer yelled in Laundry's general direction.
