Knowing they had third place wrapped up in the East Division, the Toronto Argonauts travelled west to Winnipeg to take on the Blue Bombers. Toronto opened the scoring at 7:16 of the first quarter when K Arek Bigos missed a 41-yard FG to score a single. K Noel Prefontaine added another single at 12:17 when he hoofed a 69-yard punt through the end zone. At 4:24 of the second period, Bigos scored his second single of the night off a missed FG when his 42-yard attempt sailed wide. Winnipeg took the lead at 8:09 when QB Jay Walker, who replaced starter Troy Kopp in the first quarter, teamed up with wide-out Milt Stegall for a 25-yard scoring play. K Troy Westwood’s convert made the score 7-3 much to the delight of the 33,810 Blue Bomber faithful on hand. Walker found Stegall in the end zone for the second time at 12:26. Westwood’s convert made the score 14-3. Westwood added to the Winnipeg cause hoofing a 26-yard FG at 13:18 before P Bob Cameron was forced to concede a safety at 14:07 to make the score 17-5 at the half. Westwood accounted for all the scoring in the third quarter striking FGs from 52, 14, and 37 yards respectively. Toronto, reeling from the Blue Bombers offensive barrage, could not regroup in the final stanza of play as Westwood continued to wield a hot foot nailing his fifth FG of the night at 3:14 from 36 yards out. Winnipeg hit the 31-point mark when Toronto back-up pivot Jay Barker conceded a safety at 6:48. Barker hooked up with WR Andre Batson at 11:05 for Toronto’s first major of the game but it was too little, too late as Winnipeg hung on to win their third game of the season 31-12.
