On the first preseason game, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers won the game 36 – 13 against the Montreal Alouettes.
Glenn, named the Alouettes’ starting quarterback going into pre-season, finished a busy night with 14 completions on 19 attempts for 140 yards and a touchdown, including a strike to Nik Lewis early in the second quarter to give the Alouettes a 7-3 lead. More than ten veterans, including John Bowman, Marc-Olivier Brouillette and Tyrell Sutton, were not in uniform for last night’s pre-season game.
Glenn and Willy each played the entire first quarter, which ended in a 3-0 Bombers lead on a 47-yard field goal by free agent signing Medlock.
But while Willy’s day was done through 15 minutes, Glenn had one more drive that extended through the start of the second quarter and it was a big one. The veteran pivot continued his efficient evening with six straight completions, eventually drawing a pass interference penalty on second down before finding Lewis for the five-yard score.
Cato stepped on the field in the second quarter and didn’t take long to find the end zone, capping off a five-play scoring drive with a 12-yard touchdown pass to rookie 5-foot-8 receiver Chandler Jones in the back of the end zone.
Chandler maintained his concentration to hang on for the catch in between Bombers defenders, as the Alouettes extended their lead to 13-3.
The Als will play their second and final pre-season game next Friday at McGill’s stadium! -> TICKETS
