The Winnipeg Blue Bombers delivered an emphatic 36-13 victory over the Calgary Stampeders, concluding the regular season on a high note.

The Bombers secured their 14th win, ensuring a strong position in the upcoming CFL standings as they enter the post-season.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers: Offense and Defense Shine
Dru Brown was the star of the game, completing 13 of 17 passes for 278 yards and tossing 2 touchdowns. His main targets for the day were Rasheed Bailey and Brendan O’Leary-Orange, who pulled down receptions for 81 and 62 yards, respectively. On the ground, Johnny Augustine led the rushing attack with 15 carries for 87 yards.
Winnipeg’s defense was equally impressive, led by Shayne Gauthier who had 4 defensive tackles. Miles Fox added 3 tackles and a quarterback sack, contributing to a defensive line that gave Calgary’s offense little room to breathe.
Calgary Stampeders: A Night to Forget
For Calgary, it was a challenging evening. Quarterback Jake Maier managed only 6 completions on 15 attempts for 110 yards and a single touchdown. Dedrick Mills led the rushing attack with 8 carries for 88 yards, but it wasn’t enough to add much-needed points to the CFL scores for the Stampeders.
Linebacker Micah Awe was the defensive standout for Calgary, finishing with a remarkable 13 tackles. However, despite his individual effort, the defense was unable to contain Winnipeg’s potent offense.
The game wasn’t close, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers capitalized on their opportunities. Both teams will now shift their focus to the post-season. The Stamps are off to Vancouver to face the BC Lions in the Western Semi-Final, while Winnipeg will be well-rested as they await their opponents in the Western Final. With this performance, Winnipeg has made a strong statement and will be a team to watch in the playoffs.
