WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS (5-2-1) 15
TORONTO ARGONAUTS (2-6) 13
TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYER
On the same night he was honoured for setting the all-time touchdown record, Winnipeg slotback Milt Stegall led all receivers with nine receptions for 151 yards. And he keyed Winnipeg's last-minute drive.
TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER
Bomber defensive tackle Jerome Haywood was a force, especially in the first half when he sacked Toronto quarterback Rocky Butler. He also forced Butler to fumble, setting up Winnipeg's only TD.
TOP SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER
Toronto kicker Noel Prefontaine not only connected on a 51-yard field goal but helped win the field position battle with his booming punts. Honourable mention to Argo returners Dominique Dorsey, Arland Bruce III and Bashir Levingston, who were a three-headed monster against Winnipeg's incredibly soft kick coverage.
Winnipeg kicker Rob Pikula booted a 28-yard field goal with seven seconds left to give the Bombers a come-from-behind 15-13 victory.
SMACK OF THE MATCH
Toronto linebacker Willie Pile simply stuck Winnipeg's Albert Johnson III, stopping him cold on a punt return that he almost broke. To add insult to the smack, Bombers were nailed for holding on the return.
Stegall was a highlight reel all his own on Winnipeg'slast-minute drive that led to Pikula's game-winning three-pointer. He had two catches for 40 yards on that drive alone.
