MONTREAL - The Blue Bombers have been the CFLs early surprise, but now quarterback Drew Willy and his high-scoring Winnipeg team will take their show on the road. Scarpe Yeezy Originali . The Bombers (2-0) face the hard-charging Montreal Alouettes (1-1) defence when the teams meet Friday night at Percival Molson Stadium. Catch the game live on TSN starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. Winnipeg opened the season with home wins over Toronto and Ottawa, piling up a league-leading 81 points in two games. They face a team than has allowed fewer than 20 points per game, including last weeks 24-9 win at home over British Columbia. "Theyve had a good defence for a long time," Willy said Thursday. "Theyve got a lot of good veterans. "You can tell theyve played together a long time. This week we were preparing, looking at the different looks theyve given in the last few games and the past few years, so well be ready to go. Im looking forward to going against them." The Alouettes offence has yet to find its stride under new starting quarterback Troy Smith, although he was better against the Lions than in the season opener in Calgary, a 29-8 loss. Smith has yet to pass for more than 200 yards in a game or throw a touchdown pass, but his execution improved and the Alouettes hope the offence takes another step the third time out. Willy has had no such problems so far in his first CFL season as a starter. He played eight games over the past two seasons with Saskatchewan as Darian Durants backup. The 27-year-old was traded to Winnipeg on Feb. 6 for receiver Jade Etienne. In his two games, Willy has passed for 615 yards, second only to Torontos Ricky Ray, and four TDs. He completed two-third of his throws, 40 for 60. Smith has completed only half of his passes, 35 for 70, for 341 yards. The Bombers have also been successful on the ground, where newcomer Nate Grigsby has rushed for 184 yards and three TDs on 35 carries. "Hes made some huge plays for us," said Willy. "Hes been able to get the tough yards we need late in games near the goal-line." Montreals aggressive, ball-hungry defence will be a test, however. Last week, they sacked B.C.s Kevin Glenn five times and caused three turnovers. "Weve just got to play assignment football," said defensive tackle Alan-Michael Cash. "They do have a good running back, but we pride ourselves on stopping the run, so itll be a good match." The defence also produced an early TD for the Alouettes, when defensive lineman Scott Paxson picked off a pass and pitched it to linebacker Chip Cox for an easy jaunt into the end zone. Cox said the challenge will be to slow down a Winnipeg offence that has early-season momentum. "Big plays man, theyre getting a lot of big plays," he said. "If we can eliminate them, I think well be fine." Few expected such a strong start from the Bombers, who went 3-15 last season. Winnipeg has missed the playoffs in four of the last five years, with a 30-60 record over that span. So far, they look to be a better, more disciplined club under new head coach Mike OShea. "Two games, weve been successful twice," cautioned OShea. "The players are doing what the coaches ask of them and the effort is there and theyre doing whats needed to win, so far." Still, the wins have not only given them points, but a much-needed morale boost as well. "Its very important, as I stressed through training camp, that this team tasted winning early, especially the veteran players who had experienced more than their fair share of losing," said OShea. "Theyve got that taste in the mouth now and they like it, so I believe theyll continue to do the things they needed to do to win those two games." They also havent been tested on the road. Home teams went 7-1 in the first two weeks. "Being on the road, from my recollection, can be good," said OShea, a former standout linebacker for Toronto. "You get more time to sit with your teammates and watch film together and talk football because theres not the distractions (of home). Its a business trip." Winnipeg will move Johnny Sears to safety to replace the injured Maurice Leggett. There were fears that receiver Aaron Kelly would sit out, but OShea said hes ready to play. Montreal has safety Mike Edem back from injury, but cornerback Chris Smith is out with a concussion and will be replaced by Dominique Ellis. Yeezy Boost Scontate .Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have been neck and neck all season, with 17 points separating the rivals and double points on offer for the race.Tensions between them have spilled over during the campaign and the pairs fragile relationship was evident during Thursdays pre-race news conference, when Rosberg goaded Hamilton by advising him to race cleanly. Adidas Yeezy Italia Online .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks take aim at their longest winning streak of the season on Sunday when they host the Calgary Flames in a battle at the United Center.COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Maryland sophomore goalkeeper Zack Steffen is leaving college to sign with Freiburg of Germanys Bundesliga.Maryland made the announcement Friday on its website.The 19-year-old from Downingtown, Pennsylvania, led the Terrapins to consecutive regular-season and conference titless and was defensive MVP at last years NCAA College Cup, where Maryland lost to Notre Dame. Adidas Yeezy Italia.
