Game Notes

Game Summary

Winnipeg quarterback Matt Dunigan ran for 3 TDs and added another 3 passing leading the Blue Bombers to a convincing 53-11 win over the Edmonton Eskimos before 25,786 spectators at Winnipeg Stadium last Friday night. Dunigan got the Bombers on the scoreboard 3:32 into the opening frame as he scored the 1st of his 3 TDs, this one a 1-yard run giving Winnipeg a lead that they would not relinquish on this night. Blue Bomber kicker Troy Westwood, who was good on 1-of-2 FG attempts and all 7 of his convert attempts, increased the Bomber lead to 8 with a single off a 50-yard missed FG attempt to close out the 1st quarter scoring. Dunigan opened up the 2nd quarter scoring running it in from 2 yards out for his 2nd TD of the game. He then hooked up with David Williams for an 18-yard major to round out the 1st half scoring with the Bombers on top 22-0. The Eskimos finally got on the board as kicker Sean Fleming booted a 46-yard FG and added a single off a 39-yard attempt. Westwood added a 40-yarder to make the score 25-4 Winnipeg after 3 periods of play. The 4th quarter belonged to the Blue Bombers as they put up 28 points. Dunigan got his team going again as he ran in himself from 2 yards out for his 3rd major of the game. Winnipeg’s Nathaniel Bolton padded the Bomber lead as he was on the receiving end of a 17-yard Dunigan toss. Fullback Chris Johnstone plunged in from 1-yard out 9:16 into the 4th quarter to put the Bombers up by 46-4 margin. Edmonton slotback J.P. Izquierdo hooked up with Tom Muecke for an 18-yard pass and run to account for the only Edmonton TD of the game, with less than 3 minutes left to play before Winnipeg’s David Williams rounded out the scoring by hauling in a 25-yard pass from Sammy Garza to make the final 53-11 in favour of the Blue Bombers.
