What Did You Miss Friday?

Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Matt Nichols hands off to Andrew Harris during the first half of CFL action against the Montreal Alouettes in Winnipeg Friday.
--The Bombers four-game losing streak is over.  They beat Montreal 31-14.  Matt Nichols threw for 256 yards and a touchdown in the victory.   Running back Andrew Harris also went over the 1000 yard mark for the season.

--The U of R Rams fell to 2-2 on the season as they were beaten 33-20 in Saskatoon by the U of S Huskies.  It was a rough night for Noah Picton as the Rams QB threw three interceptions including one late in the 4th quarter in the endzone to squash any hopes of a comeback.

--The Pats were beaten 7-2 in Prince Albert.  The Raiders led the game 4-0 after two.  Goals by Aaron Hyman and Duncan Pierce made it close in the 3rd, but PA finished the game by scoring the last three goals.  The two teams meet Saturday night in Regina.

--Justin Rose and Tiger Woods are tied for the lead at the midway point of the Tour Championship in Atlanta.  Both are at 7 under par.

--Chicago Cubs shortstop  was placed on administrative leave Friday following fresh allegations of domestic violence from his ex-wife.  Late Thursday, a blog post from Russell's ex-wife contained detailed allegations of physical and emotional abuse.  It is the second time Russell has faced allegations with the first ones being unproven after failed co-operation by his ex-wife and a friend.
"These allegations are completely false," Russell said in a statement put out by the union. "I made that clear to Major League Baseball last year and reiterated it to the Cubs today. I'm confident any full and fair investigation will fully exonerate me.

Glad to see the Saskatoon football teams sending Regina home with their collective tails between their legs.
