What went down in Winnipeg?

Last night in Winnipeg, former Redblack, Trevor Harris and the Edmonton Eskimos battled against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Bombers were able to keep a lead for most of the game, as they won 28-21 with help from former Dallas Cowboy kick returner and receiver Lucky Whitehead, who caught 7 balls for 155 yards and two touchdowns. Trevor Harris brought the Eskimos close to a victory, but had trouble getting touchdowns, Harris threw for 345 yards while using his legs to gain an extra 15 yards but still couldn’t get a touchdown offensively.

Luckily for Trevor Harris and the Eskimos, kicker, Sean Whyte was able to put up all 21 points, being 7/7 on field goals with a season long, 45 yard field goal to close out the first half.

With this Winnipeg win, the Bombers improve to 2-0, and will visit the Redblacks in the Nation’s capital next Friday, July 5th for an undefeated showdown.

What to look forward to

Montreal visits Hamilton

In last week’s home opener in Toronto, Hamilton did a hell of a job embarrassing Toronto. Putting up 64 points is already crazy, but winning by 50 points is even crazier. Montreal, who gave up the second most points last year, might have a big challenge against Hamilton tonight.

BC travels to Calgary

Mike Reilly and his crew from B.C travel to match up against Calgary this Saturday. Both teams are yet to win, and both teams are hungry to win. B.C is coming off a loss to Edmonton, in which, Trevor Harris and the Eskimos came back in the 4th quarter for a big win, and a tough loss for B.C. Meanwhile in Calgary, Bo Levi Mitchell and his Stampeders are fresh off a bye week after their loss to Ottawa in the 2018 Grey Cup rematch, in which, Dominique Davis forgot about his 4 ints and cameback from a 28-14 to 32-28 win and a heart breaking loss for the Stamps.

This game, you should see both, Mike Reilly and Bo Levi Mitchell, battling at 110% showing who should be West champs.

Canada day in Saskatchewan

On the night of Canada day, Monday July 1st, the Toronto Argonauts will face the Sakatchewan Roughriders in Saskatchewan, at the new Mosaic Stadium. The Argos are coming off a heart breaking loss to Hamilton, where they lost 64-14 in their home opener, and Saskatchewan in coming off a 44-41 loss in Ottawa, where Cody Fajardo threw his arm off replacing the injured Zach Callaros, he threw for 360 yards and 2 touchdowns, and he hopes to do the same this week at home.
