Game Notes

Game Summary

For the 6th game in a row, the Tiger-Cats were unable to put enough points on the scoreboard to give them 2 points in the win column as they were beat 35-11 by the Blue Bombers before 24,475 fans at Winnipeg Stadium. Bomber QB Matt Dunigan got the game going as he took his team down the field on a 55-yard drive which ended with a 14-yard TD throw to Gerald Alphin at 6:57 of the opening frame. Hamilton K Paul Osbaldiston kicked a single on a missed FG from 44 yards out a couple of minutes later before Bob Torrance, a Canadian QB starting his 2nd game in the CFL, passed for his 1st career TD, a 15-yard pass to Cornell Burbage after Earl Winfield was able to return a punt 42 yards to the Winnipeg 19-yard line. Osbaldiston made the convert to give the Cats an 8-7 lead. But that was short-lived as Winnipeg came back with a 45-yard drive, which included a 23-yard run by Michael Richardson and a 15-yard pass to David Williams from Dunigan, and was capped off by a 2-yard TD rush by Richardson. Dunigan continued on a roll as he connected on some key passes, including a 9-yard throw for the major to Allan Boyko with three and a half minutes left in the 2nd quarter. It was the kickers’ quarter in the 3rd as K Troy Westwood added to his team’s 21-8 lead, kicking a 39-yard FG, followed by a 47-yarder off the foot of Osbaldiston. Westwood came back with a 16-yard FG to complete a 66-yard drive, giving Winnipeg a 27-11 edge going into the final period. The Bombers would score another 8 points (a single off the toe of P Bob Cameron and a 10-yard TD run by Richardson) for a final count of 35-11 as Winnipeg pads its lead of the Eastern Division to 6 points over the Cats, who remain in 2nd place over Ottawa and Toronto.
