Roberts rushes for three scores as Blue Bombers rout Roughriders

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:41 PM
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Ticker) -- Charles Roberts rushed for three touchdowns to lead the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to a 34-15 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Sunday.

In a battle of first place teams, the Blue Bombers jumped on top in the first half, carrying a 24-8 advantage into the break. Roberts, who finished with 98 yards on 22 carries, sparked the offense in the early going, scoring his first two touchdowns in the opening half.

Roberts' big day helped Winnipeg control the tempo of the game, as the team held onto the ball for over 38 minutes.

The Bombers front-seven controled the line of scrimmage, holding the Roughriders to just 52 yards rushing.

The victory avenged last weekend's 31-26 loss and snapped Saskatchewan's winning streak at five games.

Bombers quarterback Kevin Glenn completed 21-of-31 passes for 279 yards, one touchdown and one interception before he was relieved late in the fourth quarter by backup Ryan Dinwiddie.
