The Winnipeg Blue Bombers played host to the Toronto Argonauts in front of an energetic crowd at Winnipeg Stadium. Toronto scored first with an excellent 24 yard run into the end zone by renowned quarterback Doug Flutie. This was followed by a convert from the foot of Mike Vanderjagt. Kent Austin led Winnipeg down the field enabling Westwood to blast a 27 yard field goal putting the Bombers on the scoreboard. Despite the efforts of the Blue Bombers, Toronto found themselves on the scoreboard again with an impressive 79 yard touchdown run by Robert Drummond. This garnished with a single point by Vanderjagt leaves the score at 14 to 3 in favour of Toronto after the first quarter. Toronto came out blasting in the second quarter with a Flutie pass which found its way over 45 yards of turf to be cradled in the arms of receiver Tyrone Williams for another Toronto touchdown. Again Vanderjagt followed with the convert. Despite the apparent Toronto steamroller, Winnipeg does not give up the fight and push their way down field into position for another field goal by Westwood from 19 yards out. An unsuccessful drive by Toronto leaves Winnipeg with possession which returned to Toronto when Austin’s pass is intercepted by Reggie Givens. This turnover results in an explosive 46 yard field goal by Vanderjagt. The half ends with Toronto in the lead 21 to 6. The second half begins with another successful field goal by Vanderjagt followed by another Vanderjagt point seven minutes later from a 69 yard single. Winnipeg drove down the field and was rewarded with a 25 yard run by Milt Stegall and a 2 point convert by Gerald Wilcox. Despite the efforts of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Doug Flutie and his offence is too much to be reckoned with on this particular evening in Winnipeg Stadium leaving the final at 35 to 14 in favour of the Toronto Argonauts.
