The Winnipeg Blue Bombers lose their season opener 19-17 to the Edmonton Eskimos.

The Bombers had a slow start, down 9-2 at the half. But they would out-score the Esks in the 4th. With 5 seconds left, the Bombers found themselves in a position to tie the game with a field-goal. Bombers kicker Alexis Serna’s kick was just short in completing an amazing comeback by the boys in Blue and Gold.

The Bombers next game is their home-opener at the Canad Inns Stadium on Friday July 10 against the Calgary Stampeders.
