Hallelujah, the CFL preseason is officially in the rear-view mirror. Let the real games begin.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Saskatchewan Roughriders faced off in the final game of the exhibition season, with the prairie rivals playing in front of a crowd of 24,654 at IG Field Friday night. The Bombers would try to make it a game as the night wore on but failed to mount a late comeback as the Roughriders rolled to a 28-16 victory.
The Bombers wrap up the preseason with a 1-1 record, having defeated the Edmonton Elks, 25-23, on the road last Saturday. The Roughriders won both their preseason games, including a 30-27 home triumph over the B.C. Lions.
Winnipeg will begin the regular season next Friday (June 9) against the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Before we look too far ahead, let’s take a look at Friday’s loss, with some news, notes and analysis from the game.
