BLUE BOMBERS 29 LIONS 26
The Blue Bombers prevailed after scoring 10 points in the final two minutes.
Winnipeg (5-10) moved into a tie with B.C. (5-9) for the third and final playoff spot in the West Division as it posted only its second win in the past nine games. The Lions have four games left in the regular season, while the Bombers only have three remaining.
Castillo, making his CFL debut, was good on all five of his field-goal attempts. Winnipeg also received a touchdown from Ian Wild on a blocked punt return to overcome a 23-9 half-time deficit.
The loss spoiled a strong first-half effort by B.C. quarterback Jonathon Jennings, who tossed three touchdowns while completing 16 consecutive passes. He threw for 307 yards in the first half alone.
Emmanuel Arceneaux caught two of Jennings' touchdown passes while Austin Collie snagged another.
