BACK-TO-BACK WALK-OFF WINS FOR WINNIPEG

Justin Tang/Canadian Press
OTTAWA - Justin Medlock kicked six field goals, including one from 38 yards out as time expired, to give the Winnipeg Blue Bombers a 33-30 win over the Ottawa Redblacks on Friday.

Medlock kicked field goals of 35 and 40 and added a single point for the Bombers in the final three minutes to tie the game at 30 to set up his game-winning kick.

It was the second consecutive week the Bombers made an impressive comeback for a win. Last week quarterback Matt Nichols brought them back from 12 points down with less than a minute to play to beat the Montreal Alouettes.

After Medlock had tied the score at 23-23 just three minutes into the fourth quarter, Redblacks quarterback Trevor Harris drove the Redblacks down field and connected with Greg Ellingson from 21 yards out at 9:25 of the fourth quarter. After the conversion from Brett Maher the Redblacks led 30-23.

Ottawa had a 23-20 lead going into the fourth quarter thanks to a 52-yard touchdown run by William Powell just 57 seconds into the second half and a two-point conversion catch by Brad Sinopoli.

Maher then kicked a 44-yard field goal to give the Redblacks a 23-17 lead before Medlock responded with a 36-yard field goal of his own to get Winnipeg a bit closer at 23-20.

Sure looks like Winnipeg or BC will be the cross-over team to go east in the play-offs.

Looking more and more like Darian Durant will be playing in the east final this year as Montreal will finish first. Could be Durant vs Bo Levi in the Grey Cup.

Watched both games tonight and have to say it was not good by the refs...really one sided in the one game forsure but the better team held out.

"Darian Durant will be playing in the east final this year as Montreal will finish first." "Huh???? Alouettes win loss record of 2 - 5 to date says otherwise. Darian Durant a old washed-up brittle mediocre qb in the twilite of playing for his personal money only. Not team oriented or good on the Alouettes long term. Kavis will soon release Durant outright and cut his losses.
