Game Notes

Game Summary

The Montreal Alouettes were looking for a strong performance from QB Tracy Ham, who was back for his second game since an early season back injury, in order to move closer to the Eastern leaders. Winnipeg, on the other hand had just come off a big win over Edmonton the week before. A quiet first quarter saw both teams record a field goal. Troy Westwood put Winnipeg on the board first with a 27 yard shot. Alouette kicker Terry Baker countered with a 42 yard field goal to tie the game. Montreal took the lead early in the second quarter with two more field goals from the foot of Baker. Another 42 yard shot and a 47 yard blast gave the Als a 6 point lead. Winnipeg fought back setting up Westwood for a 26 yard field goal to narrow the margin. Montreal scored the first major of the game. Ham hit Jock Climie with a 36 yard pass for a touchdown. Baker’s convert extended Montreal’s lead. Westwood and Baker swapped 32 yard field goals before the end of the quarter leaving the Alouettes ahead by 10 at the half. The third quarter saw little scoring. Baker made a 43 yard field goal for the Alouettes and punter Bob Cameron scored a single for the Blue Bombers. Montreal dominated the game in the fourth quarter keeping the ball for over 10 minutes. During that time Ham carried the ball in from the 8-yard line for a touchdown and threw the ball to Climie over 13 yards for another. Baker converted both majors making the final score 35 to 10 for the Alouettes. Ham was outstanding scoring 1 TD himself and throwing for 2 others.
