Game Notes

Game Summary

In a game that was dominated by Winnipeg on both sides of the ball, the Blue Bombers decimated the Edmonton Eskimos 52-14, in front of 30,972 hometown fans who saw the Eskimos go down for the 2nd week in a row. Winnipeg showed what kind of game they were going to play early as they scored 15 points in the 1st quarter and kept Edmonton off the board. RB Chris Johnstone crashed through to the end zone from 2 yards away, and SB Gerald Wilcox was on the receiving end of a 40-yard pass from QB Matt Dunigan while K Troy Westwood sandwiched a single from a missed FG attempt in between. Winnipeg continued its assault on the Eskimo defence in the 2nd quarter when Westwood hit from 30 yards, WR Nat Bolton returned a punt 71 yards for a major, and Westwood hit for another FG — this time from 27 yards away, before Edmonton even got on the board. When they did, with only 3 seconds left in the half, when RB Lucius Floyd went in on a 1-yard rush. In the second half, the Bombers continued their dominance as WR David Williams hauled in a 7-yard TD pass from Dunigan, 1 of 3 on the day for the Winnipeg QB who was 26-of-43 for 429 yards with 2 interceptions. SB Allan Boyko then caught another Dunigan pass for a 13-yard TD before Edmonton put their only other points on the board for the day when WR Gary Morris caught a 38-yard TD pass. Winnipeg put the nails in the coffin in the final frame when Westwood hit his 3rd FG and LB Greg Battle returned a fumble 42 yards for a TD to make the final score 52-14 for Winnipeg.
