WINNIPEG - Justin Medlock kicked six field goals and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers relied heavily on special teams Saturday afternoon in a 46-29 victory over the Toronto Argonauts for their seventh-straight win.

It took until late in the third quarter for Winnipeg (8-4) quarterback Matt Nichols to throw for his first touchdown, a 15-yard pass to Clarence Denmark to tie the game 29-29.

Kick returner Quincy McDuffie added another touchdown on a 98-yard runback while running back Timothy Flanders added a third on a two-yard run and Nichols carried it a yard for a fourth. Medlock's longest field goal came from 53 yards.

Dan LeFevour threw four touchdown passes for the Argos (5-7) and Lirim Hajrullahu added a single on a punt. LeFevour was intercepted twice.

Penalties hurt the Bombers, with seven in the first half compared with four handed to Toronto, and the game got off to a shaky start for both sides.

There was a short 37-yard kickoff from Bomber-turned-Argo Hajrullahu that left Winnipeg in possession midfield.

Surprised at the number of empty seats for this game at the Bomber's fine Stadium. Good thing they are not on a losing streak!!

It took a long time but the Bombers have finally recovered from the Taman era.
