Game Notes

Game Summary

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers played host to the Calgary Stampeders hoping that Week 4 would bring them their first victory of the season. Things were looking good early for Winnipeg when K Troy Westwood opened the scoring with a 34-yard FG at 3:25. However, their lead was short lived as QB Dave Dickenson hooked up with SB Vince Danielsen for a 4-yard TD score at 7:57. K Mark McLoughlin’s convert was good giving Calgary a 4-point cushion. P Bob Cameron rounded out the first quarter scoring two punting singles cutting Calgary’s lead to 2 points. Calgary began to pull away in the second quarter as WR Terry Vaughn hauled in a 21-yard TD pass at 6:39. McLoughlin’s convert split the uprights and their lead was increased to 14-5. Winnipeg scored their first major of the night when QB T.J. Rubley hit WR Ted Long for a 4-yard score. Westwood’s convert brought the Bombers to within 2 points. However, Calgary padded that lead just over a minute later when Dickenson threw his third TD pass of the night to wide-out Travis Moore. McLoughlin’s convert rounded out the first half scoring with Calgary holding a 21-12 advantage. Winnipeg opened up the second half scoring when RB Eric Blount returned the opening kickoff 96 yards to bring the Bombers to within 2 points of Calgary following Westwood’s convert. But as was the case in the first half, Calgary was unwilling to relinquish their lead. McLoughlin’s 27-yard FG was followed by a 3-yard TD reception by Allen Pitts at 9:20. McLoughlin’s convert rounded out the third quarter scoring with Calgary holding a 12-point advantage. Calgary continued to add to their lead when Dickenson found Moore for the second time from 89-yards out. Then Dickenson called his own number for a 9-yard rushing TD at 12:25. McLoughlin nailed both converts making the final score from Winnipeg Stadium 44-25 in favour of the Calgary Stampeders
