The Montreal Alouettes were in good shape in the fourth quarter of their first regular season game of the 2018 season. They found themselves down by five points in the fourth quarter of a game in B.C. (a place that hasn’t exactly been kind to them over the years). But things fell apart once quarterback Drew Willy threw a critical interception to Lions defensive back Garry Peters deep in Als territory.
Willy, who was a guest on “Als this Week” with myself and Sean Campbell on TSN 690, described what he saw on the play.
Here’s the interception:
“I just under-threw it,” Willy said on Monday. I didn’t see his angle as well as I probably should have. [I should have] just put some more air on (the ball) or if anything just kind of eat it. It probably wasn’t the greatest angle to throw the football at. You’re just trying to scramble around trying to make a play. I need to be better with the football there and not put our defence in a tough situation. Yeah, it wasn’t something I was happy with. Looking back on it, it’s probably just a play where you eat it and move on to the next play.”
The Lions ended up scoring a touchdown on the play, when quarterback Jonathon Jennings hit Cory Watson. That gave B.C. a 22-10 lead.
