REGINA -- David Lee sacked Darian Durant to prevent a game-tying two-point convert with 14 seconds on the clock and John Chiles caught for a game-high 104 yards as the Toronto Argonauts beat the reeling Saskatchewan Roughriders 31-29 Saturday. The Argos also intercepted Durant three times to send Saskatchewan (8-3) to its second straight loss while Toronto (7-4) won its second in a row. The game was a back-and-forth affair with Saskatchewan scoring 20 straight points to erase an 11-0 deficit and the Argonauts adding 19 straight of their own in the fourth quarter. Chiles caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Toronto QB Zach Collaros as well as the two-point convert to tie the game at 23 after Swayze Waters broke the Argos scoring drought with a 33-yard field goal to open the fourth. Toronto got the ball back immediately when Alonzo Lawrence caught Durants third interception of the game and Jerious Norwood capitalized on a two-yard touchdown run that put the Argonauts ahead for good. Saskatchewan got the ball back with 53 seconds left and Durant hit Chris Getzlaf with a 45-yard pass to set up an 18-yard TD throw to Getzlaf, making it 31-29. But Durants protection broke down on the two-point attempt to give the Argos the win. Durant finished 25 of 50 for 381 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions. Collaros went 18 for 29 for 225 yards with one touchdown and one pick. After a week in which Saskatchewan lost to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, lost middle linebacker Rey Williams to a season-ending knee injury and had three players charged with aggravated assault, the Roughriders opened Saturday very much like a team on the ropes. Durant threw an interception to Demetrice Morley on his first pass of the game, leading to a one-yard touchdown run by Collaros, making his third straight start in place of the injured Ricky Ray. Later in the quarter the Argos fumbled on a punt return, giving Saskatchewan the ball at Torontos 22-yard line. But a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty to Dominic Picard forced the Riders into second-and-long, and Cory Huclacks snap on the ensuing punt went over punter Ricky Schmitts head. That gave the Argonauts the ball at Saskatchewans 34-yard line and set up a 48-yard field goal from Waters, who also opened the scoring on a punt single. Still in the first Kory Sheets, the leagues leading rusher, left the game with a right-knee injury after getting rocked by Torontos Jonathan Williams. Chris Milo got the Riders on the board before the end of the quarter with a 33-yard field goal, tying Dave Ridgways club record with his 28th straight. But Saskatchewans woes continued in the second quarter when they couldnt capitalize after Weldon Brown intercepted Collaros near midfield. Milos 21-yard attempt hit the upright in the south end zone, preserving Torontos 11-3 lead. The Roughriders turnaround came after defensive end Ricky Foleys fourth sack of the season and the teams third of the game. Durant hit Chris Getzlaf with a 31-yard touchdown pass and the Riders got the ball right back when Prince Miller recovered a Jason Barnes fumble deep in Toronto territory. Milo made amends for his earlier gaffe with a 19-yard field goal to give Saskatchewan its first lead of the game, 13-10. The Argonauts fumbled on their next possession as well when Riders safety Tyron Brackenridge hit Chad Kackert near midfield. Durant extended the lead a few plays later with a 47-yard TD strike to Rob Bagg. Milo added a nine-yard field goal to give the Riders a 23-12 lead going into the fourth quarter.

"If we only consider this season," Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said, "there is just one club in Manchester -- and its ours.MONTREAL - In his first two and half seasons, Calum Mallace was a bit player for the Montreal Impact.But things can change quickly in sports.Suddenly, with injuries and personnel changes, the Scottish-born Mallace has become a regular defensive midfielder with the Major League Soccer club through the final weeks of a rough season for the 6-18-6 Impact.And he is staking a claim for regular work next year as well.There are some injuries now and thats obviously going in my favour, the 24-year-old said Wednesday. Im trying to take advantage of that.After starting only two games through the first five months, Mallace has now been in the first 11 in six matches in a row, and seven of the last eight. He has appeared in nine straight games.An imposing figure at six-foot-three, he has brought an energetic, physical game to the defensive midfielder position. And he scored his first MLS goal along the way at New England.It helped that designated player Hernan Bernardello joined Mexican club Cruz Azul in mid-season, and that Colin Warner was traded to Toronto FC.When team captain Patrice Bernier returned with an injury from a stint with Canadas national team in August, it left a void at the back of midfield that Mallace was eager to fill.Hes got opportunities and thats what its all about, said coach Frank Klopas. Sometimes injuries occur and players get chances to play and hes taking advantage of that.Hes done well. He can always improve at times making better decisions with the ball, but hes had some very good games in the middle for us.For the first time since he was drafted in the second round, 20th overall, by Montreal in 2012, Mallace looks like he has found his niche.He was used sparingly at fullback as a rookie under coach Jesse Marsch in Montreals MLS expansion year. And when it didnt get any better under Marco Schallibaum last season, he was loaned out Minnesota United of the NASL for the rest of the campaign.With former Chicago Fire boss Klopas in charge this season, Mallace turned up at training camp determined to earrn a spot in the midfield.dddddddddddd It took most of the season, but hes finally getting his shot.Over the last few games Ive been getting my confidence up, said Mallace. Im showing that Im a player in this league that can play game in, game out, and can play with confidence in the middle of the field.I can keep the ball for the team, win tackles, distribute the ball and get forward and maybe get some assists and score some goals.With three head coaches in as many seasons, there have been wild shifts in the fortunes of several players, who are favoured by one coach only to be shunned by the next or vice versa.Mallace described his path as steady but upwards.Its been a long run, he siad. When youre young and youre not playing in this league, its difficult. I made that decision last year to go on loan and I think it helped me on and off the field, and helped me grow as a player.This year, Ive got the most minutes of my career and I think Im making the most of it.Mallace was born in Torphichen in West Lothian, Scotland, and his family moved to Mendota Heights, Minn., when he was nine. Only a trace of a Scottish accent remains.He made his mark in soccer at Marquette University, where he was Big East midfielder of the year in 2011.When Montreal participated it its first MLS SuperDraft in 2012, all the attention went to first overall pick Andrew Wenger, a big, fast forward from Duke University who never quite found his groove and was traded this season to Philadelphia for striker Jack McInerney.Now Mallace has to keep the niche he has carved for himself through the inevitable personnel changes that will come this winter. Also, Bernier is due back from his injury soon, and Klopas will have to decide whether to use them as a twosome at the back of midfield or relegate one of them to the bench.Either way, Mallace has had a string of consecutive games to show what he can do.I want to be a player every week, said Mallace. Not will he be in the squad? I want it to be: Thats our guy in the middle for next year.
