Game Notes

Game Summary

In Winnipeg on Friday, the Sacramento Gold Miners came to pay the Blue Bombers a visit and hoped to try and salvage what is left of their inaugural CFL season in front of the 27,451 fans in attendance. Sacramento got on the board first but were only able to manage 2 singles which came off 2 punts by P Pete Gardere. However, Winnipeg came back at the end of the first quarter when WR David Williams caught a 15-yard TD pass from QB Matt Dunigan to make the score 7-2 for the Bombers. In the second quarter, Winnipeg scored again this time for 2 field goals kicked by K Troy Westwood from 35 and 22 yards away before the Gold Miners put their special teams to use and managed to score a TD when WR Joe Howard Johnson returned a punt 63 yards for the major. In the second half, Sacramento came out and opened the scoring when K Jim Crouch kicked a 28-yard field goal to cut Winnipeg’s lead to 13-12. But Winnipeg came back and hit for a TD when Williams grabbed his 2nd of the evening from Dunigan on a 32-yard pass before Sacramento decided to answer when WR Titus Dixon hauled in a 20-yard pass from QB David Archer to bring the score to 20-19 with the 4th quarter remaining. In the last quarter, Winnipeg came out on a tear as they struck for an 18-yard Westwood FG, another Williams TD from 44 yards away on a pass from backup QB Sammy Garza who had entered the game when Dunigan was injured with suspected achilles tendon damage. They continued their scoring streak on another Westwood FG from 27 yards before Sacramento was able to put their only points of the 4th on the board with a 17-yard pass from Archer to Dixon with 32 seconds left in the game.
