TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYER

Blue Bombers scatback Charles Roberts rushed for 159 yards and a TD on 22 carries -- a 7.2-yard average -- and 95 of those came with the score tight in the second half. He also had a 10-yard touchdown catch and added 28 yards on three punt returns.

TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER

Bombers linebacker Lamar McGriggs registered eight defensive tackles and one special teams tackle during a game where the defence was guilty of some sloppy tackling.

TOP SPECIAL TEAM PLAYER

Bombers punter Jon Ryan booted the ball for an impressive 52.8-yard average and added two singles. The second gave Winnipeg a three-point margin with 14 seconds left.

SMACK OF THE GAME

Bombers slotback Jamie Stoddard caught a pass, then lowered his helmet and smacked into Saskatchewan cornerback Davin Bush, knocking him on his can inside the Saskatchewan 15. Two plays later, quarterback Kevin Glenn hit Roberts with a 10-yard TD toss.

HIGHLIGHT REEL

Bombers wide receiver Derrick Smith latched on to a short pass, maintained his balance on the sideline, then raced 49 yards in the first quarter to set up Milt Stegall's touchdown on the recovery of a Roberts fumble.
