WINNIPEG - When Drew Willy emerged from the raucous Bomber locker-room at Ron Joyce Stadium on Thursday night, he acted almost as if his game-winning touchdown pass as time expired was a regular occurrence.

It was difficult to tell if Willy had just led the Blue and Gold to their second last-minute victory of the season when he hit Nic Grigsby with a two-yard pass or if he had gone to the fridge and found the last piece of turkey for that sandwich he was craving.

Well, it turns out stunning comebacks are simply a part of Willy’s DNA.

“My senior year we had about five or six of them, so it’s just kinda something where you just gotta lock in in that last two minutes,” Willy said Thursday night, almost nonchalantly, after the Bombers had completed their stunning 27-26 triumph over the stunned Hamilton Tiger-Cats to improve to 5-1.

Let’s see if we have this straight: There’s 1:40 left, you’re 94 yards from the end zone, and you trail by six points, and it’s no problem?
