WINNIPEG — Zach Collaros wasn't really surprised by the way his debut with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers ended.

Collaros guided the offence down the field late in the fourth quarter and Justin Medlock booted a 34-yard field goal as time expired for a 29-28 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Friday.

Could it have been scripted better?

“For kind of the crazy year it's been, probably not,” Collaros said.

Collaros began his eighth CFL season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but suffered a concussion during the first drive of the team’s season-opening loss to Hamilton on June 13. He was traded to the Toronto Argonauts in late July and never got into a game.

  Harris rushes for 166 yards in the Bombers’ 35-24 win over Montreal The Blue Bombers picked up an important 35-24 win over the Montreal Alouettes on Saturday. "We were able to control the line of scrimmage pretty much all game," said Andrew Harris, the CFL's leading rusher, who added another 166 yards and a touchdown to his season totals during the game."It starts with those five guys." Winnipeg quarterback Chris Streveler, who rushed for 64 yards himself, was just as effusive."There were times when I thought Andrew was going to get three yards and he got nine," said Streveler, who also threw for one touchdown.

Justin Medlock 's 43-yard field goal with two seconds left in the fourth quarter gave the Winnipeg "I'll just let Tyler get over it the best we can right now. We have his back and we're going to need him to The Blue Bombers led 16-3 at halftime and appeared in control. Medlock connected on three field

The Calgary Stampeders erased a 16-point deficit and edged the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 26-25 on Saturday thanks to a late 40-yard field The Stamps took their first lead of the game at 12:35 of the third quarter when Tate ran for a one-yard touchdown to cap off an impressive 11-play, 107-yard drive.

He was shipped to Winnipeg from the Argonauts at the trade deadline on Oct. 9, insurance after Bombers Matt Nichols had season-ending surgery on a shoulder he injured in mid-August.

Chris Streveler was Winnipeg's starter, but he injured an ankle in Calgary's 37-33 victory last weekend and wasn't ready for the rematch so Collaros was tapped.

Collaros completed 22-of-28 pass attempts for 221 yards with touchdown passes to Kenny Lawler and Darvin Adams. He threw one interception.

The victory kept Winnipeg's (11-7) hopes alive for a home playoff date. If the Stamps (11-6) lose next week to B.C., Winnipeg finishes second in the West Division. Saskatchewan (11-5) ends its season with back-to-back games against Edmonton.

Calgary led 7-0 after the first quarter, 14-10 at halftime and 28-19 after the third.
