The Lions had a harder time coping with their frustrations in the second half against Winnipeg. Dunigan, Canada's best quarterback, is now 1-2 in three consecutive Grey Cup appearances. On Sunday he failed to mount much of anything in the second half, allowing Winnipeg kicker Trevor Kennerd to dominate the scoring with two of his four field goals. Dunigan was intercepted at the Bombers' seven-yard line with six minutes to play. Then, in the waning moments—and with his club needing a mere "single" to tie the game—he saw two of his passes knocked away and a third fall incomplete.
Lots of critical plays. A one-point game. No one left Lansdowne Park early. The organizers of that annual January rout known as the Super Bowl would trade their halftime for what the CFL had on Sunday: a big finish.
