Game Notes

Game Summary

Winnipeg desperately needed a win against Toronto to keep their playoff hopes alive. They entered the weekend tied with Saskatchewan for the final playoff opening. Winnipeg came out strongly scoring 24 unanswered points in the first half. Gerald Wilcox got on the board first with a 23 yard TD pass from Reggie Slack. Troy Westwood kicked the convert, as he did on all Blue Bomber TDs. Later in the quarter, the Bombers struck again sending Blaise Bryant in from the 1-yard line for the major. The Bombers continued their all out attack on the Argonauts in the second quarter. FB Chris Johnstone caught a 7 yard pass from Slack for a TD. Westwood added three more points to their lead with no time on the clock with a 19 yard attempt. Toronto opened the second half with an onside kick that Mike Morreale recovered and took to the Winnipeg 4-yard line. Mike “Pinball” Clemons took the ball in from there and Terry Baker kicked the convert. Baker got on the board again with a 23 yard field goal minutes later. Westwood put his second FG through for Winnipeg from 22 yards out before Bryant scored his second TD on a 2 yard run. Late in the fourth quarter, Jimmy “The Jet” Cunningham returned a Bob Cameron punt 100 yards for the score. Again, Baker kicked the convert. Winnipeg’s Westwood kicked his third field goal of the game to extend the Blue Bombers lead. Toronto tried to mount a comeback late in the game. John Morton took a 68 yard pass from back up QB Marvin Graves for the major. The convert attempt failed. Minutes later, Graves threw another TD pass, this time to “Pinball” Clemons over 16 yards. Baker kicked the convert. Matt Pearce put the game away for the Bombers when he broke a 44 yard run for a touchdown with only 0:22 to play in the game. Westwood’s convert made the final score 44 to 30 for the Bombers.
