Game Notes

JIM BENDER -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 8:38 AM ET

TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYER

Edmonton's Jason Maas looked like the quarterback of old -- before he underwent off-season shoulder surgery. Starting the match in the absence of the injured Ricky Ray, Maas picked apart the Winnipeg secondary in the first half, completing nine of 11 passes for 120 yards as he led the Eskies to a 10-0 lead before the Bombers even woke up.

TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER

Bomber defensive lineman Doug Brown, who did not play against the Eskimos in Edmonton last week, showed he has lost none of the talent that earned him the club's nomination as top defensive player. Brown sacked Edmonton quarterback Khari Jones in the end zone for a safety touch, then sacked the former Bomber QB again as the Eskimos threatened to score moments later.

TOP SPECIAL TEAM PLAYER

Edmonton's Tony Tompkins ripped off a 40-yard punt return and almost broke another. Although Bomber kick returner Keith Stokes looked dangerous every time he touched the ball, his longest return was 20 yards.

SMACK OF THE GAME

Bomber linebacker Lamar McGriggs laid Edmonton defensive end Rashad Jeanty on his can during a punt return, eliciting groans from the crowd.

KEY PLAY

Edmonton quarterback Khari Jones completed a 23-yard touchdown toss to wide receiver Trevor Gaylor, who beat Justin Coleman, on the last play of the third quarter to give Edmonton a 20-9 lead.

HIGHLIGHTREEL

Bomber quarterback Kevin Glenn completed a 41-yard toss to veteran slotback Milt Stegall, which set up a Jon Ryan 30-yard field goal.
