A short punt gave the Stamps good field position for their opening drive, where receiver Nik Lewis grabbed the franchise record with a reception in his 86th straight game, snagging an eight-yarder from Henry Burris.

An even worse shank on the Bombers' next punt led to even better field position for the Stamps' next drive, and they made the visitors pay. Lewis and Burris connected twice, the longest an 18-yarder to get them into scoring range. They grabbed a 7-0 lead on Burris' seven-yard pass to Brett Ralph in the endzone.

Mike Labinjo sacked Blue Bombers quarterback Kevin Glenn in his first game back from an ankle injury.

Jason Armstead's fantastic 45-yard punt return took the Bombers all the way to the Stamps' 36-yard line, but they settled for a 48-yard field goal by Alexis Serna to make it 7-3.

Second quarter

A long scoring drive got the second quarter off on the right foot for the Stamps.

Ken-Yon Rambo and Lewis came up with consecutive seven-yard grabs before Jeremaine Copeland punched in the team's second major with a 36-yard grab. The 10-play drive went 95 yards to give the Stamps a 14-3 lead.

The next one was even longer. Racking up 104 yards in 10 plays, the Stamps made it 21-3 at 11:30 when Rambo burned behind a pair of Bombers defenders to make a 33-yard grab in the endzone.

The Stamps went for it twice on third-and-short during the drive to keep it alive.

The Bombers got back on the board with a 47-yard field goal by Serna.

Third quarter

Ryan Dinwiddie came in to replace Glenn at quarterback, but his first series ended in a safety. They started at their own seven and didn't want to punt out of their own endzone, so the Bombers took a knee to make it 23-6 for the Stamps.

The visitors put together a long drive for their first major score of the night, going 78 yards in nine plays. They used the two-man running combination of Fred Reid and Joe Smith to get some momentum.

Romby Bryant came up with the TD grab, tipping Dinwiddie's pass up in the air and catching it on the rebound in the endzone over defender Lenny Walls to make it 23-13.

The Stamps regained the 17-point lead with a 79-yard drive capped off by a Teyo Johnson touchdown catch from five yards out.

Fourth quarter

With another chance to cut into the Stamps lead, the Bombers saw a drive cut short by a Dwight Anderson interception.

Going for the jugular, the Stamps scored another major through the air -- Burris' fifth -- when the quarterback hit Ralph from 10 yards out for a 37-16 final.

Lewis went over 1,000 yards for a franchise high fifth straight season.
