Justin Medlock booted a 34-yard field goal as time expired in the fourth quarter to lift the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to a 29-28 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Friday.

The win came in newly-acquired quarterback Zach Collaros’s Bombers debut, and kept Winnipeg’s (11-7) hopes alive for a home playoff date.
