Bombers hold off Als for 25-23 victory

--

WINNIPEG - Defensive back Teague Sherman looked more like a sprinter Friday night.

Sherman scored a touchdown off a blocked punt as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers held on to defeat the Montreal Alouettes 25-23.

Bombers defensive back Lin-J Shell started the play by blocking Alouettes kicker Boris Bede late in the second quarter and Sherman pounced on the ball in the end zone to give Winnipeg a 19-10 halftime lead.

He also shared the limelight with the defensive line.

"They pressured (Cato) and I just helped out and did my part on the defence," said Adams.

Lirim Hajrullahu booted four field goals in a contest that left the Alouettes (1-2) trying for a late comeback.

Winnipeg (2-1) held a 22-13 lead going into the fourth quarter, but Montreal running back Tyrell Sutton ran eight yards for his second touchdown of the game 55 seconds in to start closing the gap. …
