TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYER

Winnipeg quarterback Kevin Glenn was superb once again. Glenn completed 24 of 31 passes for 279 yards and one touchdown, with one interception, as he led the Blue Bombers to a well-earned 34-15 victory over Saskatchewan, the top team in the West.

TOP DEFENSIVE PLAYER

Winnipeg linebacker Cam Hall, who moved from strong-side to weak-side when Ike Charlton returned, did not miss a beat at his new position. Hall led the Bombers with seven defensive tackles and also had a pair of pass knockdowns. Honourable mention to defensive tackle Jerome Haywood, who had two quarterback sacks and a pair of defensive tackles.

TOP SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER

Winnipeg's Fred Reid only had a pair of kickoff returns but they were impressive. Installed as the primary returner for this match, Reid ran the two back for 86 yards, including one for 63.

KEY PLAy

Jamie Stoddard, the holder on field goals, raced nine yards for a first down on a fake that surprised Saskatchewan late in the first half. Three plays later, Glenn completed an eight-yard TD toss to slotback Milt Stegall to give Winnipeg a 24-8 lead at the half and the Roughies never recovered.

HIGHLIGHT REEL

Reid returned the opening kickoff of the second half 63 yards to the Saskatchewan 34. Bomber tailback Charles Roberts scored a one-yard TD seven plays later to give Winnipeg a 31-8 lead.

SMACK OF THE GAME

Saskatchewan defensive end Fred Perry simply rocked O'Neil Wilson after the Bomber receiver caught a pass over the middle. To Wilson's credit, he hung on to the ball.
