For both clubs, this game served as the curtain closer to the regular season and a tune-up for the Division Semi-finals. The Alouettes entered this game knowing that they would take on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Eastern Division Semi-Final, while the Blue Bombers awaited a date with the Edmonton Eskimos in Edmonton. The Bombers grabbed the early lead as RB Michael Richardson scored from 6 yards out at 4:09. Montreal quickly countered back and scored two consecutive TDs as SB Jock Climie hauled in a 34 yard pass for a major and RB Tyrone Rush, who was filling in for the injured Mike Pringle, plunged over from 1 yard out. Winnipeg punter, Bob Cameron, closed out the first quarter scoring with a 66 yard single. The Als dominated the second quarter of play with both Climie and Rush scoring their second TDs of the game. Alouette kicker, Terry Baker, rounded out the first half scoring with a 40 yard FG sending them into the locker room ahead by 14 at 22-8. The only third quarter scoring was done by Montreal DB Jason Bryant who stepped in front of an errant Winnipeg pass and scampered 89 yards for the major score. The Bombers countered back with an interception return of their own as DB Shannon Garrett picked off a Montreal pass and took it back 102 yards. Baker’s second FG of the game was followed by a Darrius Watson 12 yard receiving TD. Watson was seeing double duty thanks to a rash of Winnipeg injuries which included, LB K.D. Williams and OT Chris Walby. This, however, was the extent of the Winnipeg comeback as the curtain closed at 42-24 for the Montreal Alouettes.
