BLUE BOMBERS 25 ALOUETTES 23
Winnipeg (2-1) held a 22-13 lead going into the fourth quarter, but Montreal running back Tyrell Sutton ran in his second touchdown of the game 55 seconds in to start closing the gap.
Hajrullahu booted his fourth field goal to make it 25-20, but Als rookie quarterback Rakeem Cato guided the Alouettes on a six-play, 55-yard drive that ended with Boris Bede's 38-yard field goal.
With their team leading 25-23, the 25,605 fans at Investors Group Field got loud and Montreal (1-2) was facing third down and eight yards with 1:26 left in the game.
Winnipeg avoided a pass interference penalty and Cato's throw to target S.J.Green was tipped away and the ball turned over at Montreal's 26-yard line.
Green finished with six catches for 180 yards.
