Glenn helps Blue Bombers rally past Alouettes

Jan 9, 2008 - 4:55 PM WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Ticker) -- Milt Stegall did not find the end zone, but he didn't need to in order for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to record their first win of the season.

Kevin Glenn passed for 298 yards and two touchdowns as the Blue Bombers rallied from an early deficit to defeat the Montreal Alouettes, 32-23, on Thursday.

Glenn completed 22-of-38 attempts and Charles Roberts rushed for 91 yards and a score for Winnipeg (1-0-1), which is the only team in the East Division with a victory. Four of the completions were to Stegall, who gained 34 yards but did not score a touchdown, leaving him tied with Mike Pringle and George Reid for first on the all-time list with 137.

Montreal held a 13-0 lead after one quarter, but Winnipeg scored 22 points in the second to take a nine-point advantage into the half. Roberts highlighted the outburst with a one-yard TD run with 2:24 left in the first half.

The reigning CFL rushing champion who scored four touchdowns in a 39-39 tie against Edmonton last week, Roberts is just 576 yards away from tying Leo Lewis' all-time team rushing record.

Glenn hit Chris Brazzell for a 19-yard score with 12 seconds remaining to give the Blue Bombers a 22-13 lead. Ahead by eight early in the third quarter, Glenn completed a 62-yard scoring pass to Terrence Edwards at the 9:44 mark to make it 29-14.

Edwards, a former Alouette, caught three passes for 119 yards.

After Montreal (0-2) cut the deficit to 29-23 with three consecutive field goals, including a 33-yarder by Damon Duval with 5:23 left, Winnipeg finished the scoring with a 35-yard kick by Rob Pikula with 2:47 remaining.

Anthony Calvillo went 20-of-38 for 220 yards for the Alouettes but only was able to get Montreal into the end zone once, as Robert Edwards crossed the goal line from one yard out in the first quarter. Calvillo did move to within 67 yards of becoming just the fourth quarterback to pass for 50,000 yards in his career.
