In front of a sold-out crowd of 29,533 at Canad Inns Stadium, the Saskatchewan Roughriders annihilated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a rematch of the Banjo Bowl. Saskatchewan scored 31 points off seven Winnipeg turnovers and went on to win by a score of 55 to 10. The Bombers turned the ball over four consecutive times in the second quarter and eight during the entire course of the game.
Roughriders kicker Luca Congi was 6-of-6 on field goal attempts, and punter Jamie Boreham registered two singles on a punt and a kickoff.
Saskatchewan quarterback Darian Durant was 18-of-36 passing for 225 yards, throwing a touchdown strike to Wes Cates. Cates and Durant combined for three rushing touchdowns to lift Saskatchewan to Win #6 of the season.
“That was just a good old-fashion whipping, I guess you could say,” said Cates, who scored a total of three touchdowns for the Roughriders.
Jason Armstead added a 34-yard touchdown pass to Andy Fantuz in the 3rd quarter. It gave the Roughriders a 38-7 lead.
Winnipeg’s Michael Bishop was 9-of-21 passing for just 98 yards. The Blue Bombers fell to 3-7 on the season.
