Game notes

KEN WIEBE -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 10:12 AM ET

TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYER

Bombers QB Kevin Glenn -- Despite a sore right thumb and a host of armchair quarterbacks calling for rookie backup Russ Michna to get more playing time, the Blue Bombers starting pivot had a proficient outing and led his team to an important victory that allowed them to inch their way back into the playoff picture. When all was said and done, Glenn was 18 of 28 for 374 yards, three touchdown strikes and one interception.

TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER

Bombers LB Sean Woodson -- The former Tiger-Cat was a force against his former team and was not afraid to offer a little trash-talking. More importantly, he was all over the field, recording six tackles, one knockdown and one sack in the contest.

TOP SPECIAL TEAM PLAYER

Bombers WR Keith Stokes -- It was another solid night for the Blue Bombers valuable return-man, who managed a 66-yard return and nearly broke another for a touchdown. He finished with 126 total return yards and also made five catches for 139 yards and a touchdown.

SMACK OF THE GAME

Bombers SB Milt Stegall was drilled by Tiger-Cats defensive back Airabin Justin late in the fourth quarter, causing Stegall to fumble.

On the series following Hamilton's first score of the contest, Shawn Gallant blocked a punt to give Winnipeg the ball on the Tiger-Cats 35-yard line. One play later, Glenn hits Milt Stegall to restore the three touchdown advantage.

After a missed field goal by kicker Jamie Boreham late in the first quarter, Stokes found a seam and appeared to be off to the races. But just as he was about to accelerate into overdrive, Stokes cut back quickly and ran into teammate Omar Evans and promptly stumbled to the ground after a 66-yard return.
