Game Summary

This match-up pitted the 4-6 Tiger-Cats and the 5-5 Blue Bombers, both fresh off losses in Week 10. The Bombers set the tone early in this one with WR Milt Stegall scoring a 31 yard TD at 4:40 of the opening frame. The Bombers then added to that lead at 11:50 when WR Eric Guliford snagged a 6 yard TD pass from QB Reggie Slack. Westwood added both converts to put the Bombers up by 14 points after the first quarter. The Tiger-Cats cut into that lead at 1:31 of the second period when Sam Rogers grabbed a Bob Cameron punt and returned it 72 yards for the major. The Osbaldiston convert cut Winnipeg’s lead to 7. Following a Troy Westwood field goal, RB Mike Richardson carried one in from 3 yards away. Westwood added the convert and a 12 yard field goal to round out the second quarter scoring with the Bombers on top by 25. Two more Westwood field goals of 38 and 24 yards increased the Bombers’ lead to 31 early in the third period. Osbaldiston rounded out the third quarter scoring with a single. The Tiger-Cats, with rookie QB Larry Jusdanis at the helm, scored their second TD of the game when he hooked up with WR Ted Long for a 21 yard TD. This however would be as close as Hamilton would get as the Bombers went on to post a 33-15 victory. The win improved the Bombers to 6-5 while the Tiger-Cats fell to 4-7.
