The Montreal Alouettes can no longer blame their failures in Vancouver on jetlag.
An undisciplined Alouettes allowed B.C. Lions’ QB Travis Lulay to toss four touchdowns en route to a 43-10 setback Saturday.
The Alouettes have now lost 11 of 12 in Vancouver, even though they were playing their first afternoon game on the West Coast since 1961.
With the win, the Lions avenged their 30-25 loss in Montreal last weekend.
Lulay tossed TD passes to four different receivers and racked up 262 yards in the game.
Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo completed 16 of 26 passes for only 152 yards with a touchdown pass to Jamel Richardson, back after missing three games to injury.
The Alouettes (6-4) are now tied with the Toronto Argonauts at the top of the East Division as the Argos defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 45-31 Saturday.
The Lions (7-3) stay in first place in the West, two points ahead of the Calgary Stampeders.
