Game Notes

Game Summary

Once again, it was an outstanding demonstration by QB Doug Flutie which gave his team their 5th straight victory of the season over the Blue Bombers in front of 23,869 fans at Winnipeg Stadium. Flutie passed for 481 yards and 5 TDs completing 31-of-51 passes and threw for over 100 yards. Winnipeg opened the scoring as they capped off their opening drive of 68 yards in 10 plays with a 20-yard TD pass from 08 Matt Dunigan to SB Gerald Wilcox. Just 1:24 later, Winnipeg LB Corian Freeman stripped the ball from Flutie and ran it back 39 yards for a score putting his team up 14-0. A 65-yard drive was completed with a 23-yard TD toss from Flutie to Peewee Smith and followed up by a single point by Bomber P Bob Cameron to make the score 1 5 7 after 1 quarter. Calgary K Mark McLoughlin booted a 28-yard FG in the 2nd quarter to bring the Stamps within 5 points but Dunigan led his team downfield as the Stampeders were penalized twice, enabling the Bomber pivot to run in from the 1-yard line for the TD closing out the 1st half scoring at 22-10. The visiting team came out flying in the 2nd half as Flutie tossed the 1st of 3 TDs to Derrick Crawford, a 21-yard pass to end a 69-yard drive. Dunigan replied to that with a 23-yard TD pass to David Williams to put his team up by 12 points before Flutie found Crawford again, this time for 11 yards. McLoughlin, who converted all 5 TDs, was wide on a 46-yard FG attempt for a single while Westwood was able to connect on a 23-yarder to put the Bombers up 32-25 with 14:48 remaining in the game. A 73-yard, 7-play drive was highlighted by a 6-yard TD pass from Flutie to Crawford, giving him his 3rd TD on 9 catches for 123 yards on the evening, followed by a 24-yard major pass to Allen Pitts, who caught 5 passes for 100 yards. Winnipeg then tried to recover but could only manage a 27-yard FG by Westwood with 4:53 left with the Stamps still leading by 4 points. McLoughlin ended the scoring with a single on a 32-yard FG attempt to make the final count 40-35. Will Moore also had a great night as he connected with Flutie for 150 yards on 6 catches while Winnipeg’s leading receiver was Wilcox with 94 yards and 1 TD on 5 receptions. Dunigan finished the evening with 20-of-41 passes for 276 yards and 2 TDs and ran 5 times for 36 yards and 1 TD.
