Long returns help Argonauts down Blue Bombers

Jan 9, 2008 - 5:50 PM
TORONTO (Ticker) -- Dominique Dorsey returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown and Kenny Wheaton took an interception 84 yards for another score as the Toronto Argonauts posted a 31-23 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sunday.

Dorsey's first-quarter return helped the Argonauts establish a 21-1 halftime lead. Wheaton's interception return early in the third increase the bulge to 28-1.

However, Winnipeg quarterback Kevin Glenn engineered a dramatic turnaround in the second half, leading three scoring drives - including a 30-yard TD pass to Derick Armstrong with one second remaining in the contest.

Buoyed by 380 yards passing after halftime, Glenn finished 30-of-54 for 453 yards passing with two TDs and two interceptions.

Despite the loss, Winnipeg (7-4-1) maintained its three-point lead in the division over the Montreal Alouettes (6-6), who lost earlier in the day to Edmonton (5-6-1).

Michael Bishop went 14-of-24 for 225 yards with a touchdown and an interception for Toronto (5-7), which moved to within two points of second-place Montreal.
