A pair of Blue Bombers quarterbacks led the team to victory on Saturday.

Starting quarterback Zach Collaros completed 18 of 23 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns while his replacement Sean McGuire scored three touchdowns as the Bombers beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders 33-9 in a CFL battle.

The game was played in front of a sold-out Banjo Bowl crowd of 33,134 fully vaccinated fans at IG Field.

Collaros completed 39-yard touchdown passes to wide receiver Darvin Adams and 52-yard touchdown to slotback Kenny Lawler in the fourth quarter.

“I felt pretty good while we were there,” Collaros said. “We didn’t have a ton of snaps in the first half. Put together a few records, I think we scored some touchdowns there.

“But it was either that we were scoring quickly, or that there were two of us and four or four, something like that.” But I felt like we were performing decently. Obviously in the end we did some good things and I hope to build on it to move forward. “

With back-to-back wins over the Riders, Winnipeg improved to 5-1 over the season and remained in possession of the top spot in the West Division. Saskatchewan fell to 3-2 and remained second.

“I’m really happy for the organization and for our fans,” said Collaros. “I know Labor Day and the Banjo Bowl are very important to the CFL, to this organization and to our fans, ultimately, and we feel it as players. We know it. means a little more to gain both. “

Banjo Bowl draws enthusiastic CFL fans happy to enjoy the tradition again

Tens of thousands of football fans filled the stands to watch the Winnipeg Blue Bombers take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the 17th Banjo Bowl, which is very special for many after missing an entire CFL season of the year. last due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 1:36

Collaros also joked about MGuire’s three TDs – all on yard-long sneaks.

“I thought Canada was a hockey country,” he said. “Like, how did everyone not throw their hats on the pitch. The hat trick, you know?

“But I’m really happy for Sean. Sean is a great guy, a great football player. He works his buttocks. I think he’s going to be a great player in this league. “

Saskatchewan’s Harker completed 10 of 13 passes for 89 yards and ran 14 passes in three carries after Fajardo was taken out of the action.

fight in the 2nd trimester

The Bombers took a 12-9 lead on McGuire’s second touchdown late in the first half. It was then that a brawl broke out with thrown punches, at least one face mask grabbed, players piling on top of each other and flags fluttering all over the end zone.

As a result, Saskatchewan defensive lineman Garrett Marino and defensive back AJ Hendy were ejected from the game. No bomber was ejected.

“The guys were a little excited,” Roughriders linebacker Micah Teitz said. “It’s always tough there and we felt like they were doing a little too much on top of that and you have to defend your teammates when that happens. Unfortunately some boys got kicked out which still hurts the team so we can’t do that. It’s just football. “

Teitz was surprised that no bomber suffered a similar fate.

“It’s crazy,” he said. “Obviously, I couldn’t see everything. I was in it. I don’t even know what to say about it. When there’s a huge thing like that you obviously expect people on both sides to go away and when it’s just us it’s hard. “

Dickenson was also surprised.

“It wasn’t good news when they [officials] told me two of our guys got dumped and I asked how many of them and they said none, ”he said. “We must have done something. They said punches were thrown so I guess our guys did. “

This left Saskatchewan with two starters short of defense.

“It’s super tough,” Teitz added. “I know we have to stand up for the boys, but sometimes punching isn’t the answer. So you have to get them back to the field, so we have to stop that. “

Saskatchewan field kicker Brett Lauther kicked baskets from 25, 24 and 30 yards, all in the first half as the Bombers allowed no runs in the second half for a second straight game.

“Winnipeg is the class of the league right now,” said Dickenson. “I think they’re better than the rest of us and I think it’s by far. “

Saskatchewan will then host the Toronto Argonauts on Friday while the Bombers travel to Edmonton to face the Elks on Saturday.
