Game Notes

Game Summary

In the 1995 CFL season opener, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers travelled to the Nation’s Capital to take on the Ottawa Rough Riders at Frank Clair Stadium. The Bombers went into this game as the heavy favourites, but much to the pleasure of the 23,241 fans in attendance, it was the Riders who emerged with a 25-15 victory. Winnipeg K Troy Westwood opened the scoring, connecting on a 48 yard field goal to give the Bombers an early 3-0 lead. Ottawa K Terry Baker got the Eastern Riders on the board with a single off a 53 yard missed FG attempt to make the score 3‐1 in favour of Winnipeg at the end of one quarter of play. Ottawa QB Danny Barrett then took to the air hooking up with WR Odessa Turner for a 5 yard TD. Terry Baker added the convert to put the Riders up by 5. Westwood then narrowed the gap to 2 with a 33 yard FG before Baker countered with a 29 yarder of his own to make the score 11-6 Ottawa at the half. Baker gave the Riders a 12-6 lead with a 51 yard punting single and then widened the gap with an 18 yard FG. Barrett then scampered for an 18 yard TD. The Baker convert made the score 23-6 at the end of 3 quarters. Baker and Westwood traded FGs to open up the 4th quarter before Winnipeg QB Sammy Garza made it close by plunging over from 1 yard out. The 2-point convert attempt failed and this was as close as the Bombers would get making the final 25-15 in favour of the Eastern Riders.
