WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Ticker) -- Troy Westwood kicked four field goals and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams en route to a 34-23 victory over the Montreal Alouettes, spoiling Mike Pringle's record-setting performance. Westwood kicked three field goals in the second half for the Blue Bombers (2-11), who have won two of their last three games since an 0-10 start. Milt Stegall put Winnipeg ahead for good in the second quarter, taking a lateral from Eric Blount on a punt return and racing 80 yards to give the Blue Bombers an 8-3 lead with 11:53 left in the first half. Defensive back Reggie Carthon made it 15-3, racing 70 yards after recovering a fumble by running back Michael Soles, who caught a pass from Anthony Calvillo. Calvillo bounced right back, hooking up with Chris Armstrong on a 97-yard scoring pass to make it 15-10. Blount blunted that momentum by taking the ensuing kickoff 95 yards to provide a 22-10 lead with 4:28 remaining in the first half. Pringle finished with 103 yards on 14 carries for Montreal (8-4-1), which is winless in its last four games after a five-game winning streak. It was Pringle's ninth consecutive 100-yard game, bettering the CFL mark of eight established in 1957 by Johnny Bright of the Edmonton Eskimos and matched in 1984 by Winnipeg's Willard Reaves.
