Game Notes

Game Summary

Knowing Saskatchewan had already lost to B.C., the Blue Bombers needed a win over the Rough Riders to secure their spot in the playoffs. A win would position them in the fourth playoff opening in the South Division. Both teams came out flat in the first quarter. Wayne Lammle sent a 32 yard field goal through to put the first points on the board for the Riders. Winnipeg turned things around to start the second quarter. Reggie Slack threw a 47 yard pass to Milt Stegall for the major. Troy Westwood kicked the convert. The Bombers scored a safety minutes later as Lammle conceded the two. After the safety, Ottawa stole the momentum and dominated play the rest of the quarter. Emanuel Martin returned a partially blocked punt 33 yards for a touchdown. Lammle kicked the convert. Lammle scored again on a 21 yard field goal later in the quarter. Former Blue Bomber Sammy Garza connected with Odessa Turner to extend their lead over his former mates. Again, Lammle kicked the convert. Winnipeg put a single on the board before the end of the half as Bob Cameron sent a punt 75 yards into the end zone. Garza threw a 45 yard TD pass to Ray Alexander to extend Ottawa’s lead in the third quarter. Lammle’s convert attempt was good. Winnipeg fought back. Slack carried the ball in himself from 16 yards out to narrow the gap. Westwood’s convert left the Bombers trailing by 10. Lammle kicked two more field goals to round out scoring for the third quarter. His 42 and 47 yard kicks ended up being Ottawa’s final scores of the game. Trailing by 16, the Bombers mounted a huge comeback. QB Reggie Slack carried the ball in from the 1-yard line to begin the scoring. A two-point convert attempt failed. At 9:54, Westwood made his first field goal of the game from 32 yards out. Slack went to work again throwing a 9 yard pass to Tim Daniel for the major. Westwood’s convert tied the game at 33. With only 0:25 remaining in the game, Westwood made good from 12 yards out sealing a berth for the Blue Bombers in the 1995 Playoffs.
