Game Notes

KEN WIEBE -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 1:57 PM ET

TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYER

Charles Roberts -- The scatback was at his shifty best, finding seams and

making life miserable for the Alouettes defence. Roberts eclipsed 80 yards in the opening quarter, surpassed the

century mark in the second, finished with 195 overall on 20 carries and had two touchdowns. It was Roberts' biggest game of the season and just the second time in five contests he rushed for 100-plus yards.

TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER

Willie Fells -- The middle linebacker sure didn't look like a guy who had been on the practice roster for the opening four games of the season.

The former Calgary Stampeder didn't look out of place at all, replacing the injured Ryland Wickman. Fells had two fumble recoveries and even scored a touchdown on special teams.

TOP SPECIAL TEAM PLAYER

Keith Stokes -- The versatile return man victimized his former team with several big run-backs and helped the Blue Bombers in the important battle for field position. He had a total of 134 yards in returns.

SMACK OF THE GAME

Bombers safety Wes Lysack tattooed Als receiver Ben Cahoon near midfield late in the third quarter and caused him to fumble, leading to another Troy Westwood field goal.

KEY PLAY

After the Bombers had surrendered the lead for the first time of the night, Kevin Glenn marched the Blue Bombers back down the field. Facing a second and 25, Glenn hit Milt Stegall for a 56-yard touchdown strike that put the Bombers up 51-44 with 1:43 to go.

HIGHLIGHT REEL

Who knew a missed field goal could be so exciting? After Westwood missed a 44-yard attempt in the opening quarter, Als return-man extraordinaire Ezra Landry ran the ball out of the end zone and was promptly stripped by Willie Fells. After the ball came loose, it somehow bounced off the foot of Tom Canada, Fells picked it up at the six-yard line and finally ran it in for a touchdown.
