In the second quarter, Winnipeg came back with 5 points on the basis of a safety touch and another Westwood FG, this one from 24 yards. The 3rd quarter was all Saskatchewan though, as they found their groove and hit for two touchdowns; Warren Jones went in from 1 yard out and was followed by a 34-yard TD pass from Kent Austin to Don Narcisse which made the score 20-15 for Saskatchewan. In the 4th quarter, Saskatchewan padded its lead by hammering a single from Brent Matich and a field goal from Ridgway from 33 yards out before Winnipeg started its comeback. The Blue Bombers started with a 19-yard TD pass from Matt Dunigan to Alfred Jackson and added a 37-yard field goal by Westwood with just 4 seconds remaining to win the game 25-24.
