MONTREAL -- The latest chapter in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers storybook start to the CFL season featured last-minute, come-from-behind heroics from local boy Julian Feoli-Gudino. Winnipeg trailed by five points in the final minute when quarterback Drew Willy completed a 13-play, 75-yard drive with Feoli-Gudinos 18-yard touchdown catch on third down to lift the Bombers to a 34-33 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday night. The Blue Bombers went 3-15 last season, but are 3-0 to start the 2014 campaign under rookie head coach Mike OShea and Willy, who is in his first season as a starter. "Third down, in my hometown, it was amazing," said Feoli-Gudina. "It was a good team effort. I just had to make a play at the end." He grew up playing football for the Sun Youth Organization at Jeanne-Mance Park, a five-minute walk from the Alouettes home stadium, where he watched a lot of CFL games. So the former Toronto Argonaut, who joined the Bombers this season, was delighted to get a dramatic, game-winning grab with 29 seconds left before about 30 family and friends in the seats at Percival Molson Stadium. "Its pretty sweet," Feoli-Gudino said. "I had a diagonal. It was man coverage. I went inside and Drew put it right on the money." Backup quarterback Robert Marve had a touchdown and the Winnipeg defence got one from linebacker Desia Dunn and another from defensive back Chris Randle. Lirim Hajrullahu booted three field goals for the Bombers, who played their first road game after a pair of wins at home. Troy Smith threw his first three touchdown passes of the season to Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson, Kenny Stafford and S.J. Green for Montreal. It was the first career CFL touchdown for former NFL star Johnson. The Alouettes (1-2) also had four field goals from Sean Whyte. It was a long, grinding game slowed by 33 penalties to both teams for 328 yards and a pair of time-consuming challenges each from OShea and Montreal coach Tom Higgins. The last-minute TD marked the sixth lead change in the game. But while Montreal led 385-274 in total offence and in time of possession at 33:22, it went down to the wire when Montreal had to settle for a field goal after Demond Washingtons second fumble of a punt in the game. That left the Bombers needing a touchdown to win with 2:18 left to play. The final drive was aided by a pass interference call and a pair of third-down conversions, but Willy pulled it out in the end. "That last drive was pretty exciting," said Willy, who spent the last two seasons as Darian Durants backup in Saskatchewan. "Ive been in some crazy games before but to make a touchdown on third and 10 in a tough place to play like this, it was fun to be part of." It was a heartbreaker for Montreal, which saw Smith have his best game since taking over as the starter this season. He completed 18 of 32 passes for 309 yards, and for the first time looked to have found his range on longer throws downfield. But he also had a pass picked off by Randle when Montreal held an eight-point lead early in the fourth quarter. "Turnovers are costly, particularly when you turn them into touchdowns," said Higgins. "We got that turnover on a punt and it would have been nice if we got a touchdown there. "Then were breathing differently. But thats the reality of it. We are exactly where were at: slowly but surely getting better, but obviously not good enough to beat Winnipeg tonight." The Bombers got a 16-yard Hajrullahu boot on their first drive, but Montreal answered with a six-play drive capped by a 46-yard TD pass to Johnson. Ochocinco is known for hugging people he meets, and thats what he did to the nearest official after the score. Winnipeg looked to be stopped twice on their next drive, but a roughing call and a review of Jeff Tisdales hold on Clarence Denmark produced a pass interference call in the end zone that set up Marves one-yard TD 8:56 into the game. Whyte tied it with a 25-yard kick to open the second quarter . Winnipeg gave up the ball on downs on their own 32, but Jason Vega then stripped the ball from Troy Smith and Dunn ran it 70 yards to score at 10:41. However, the convert attempt was blocked by Alan-Michael Cash. Whyte and Hajrullahu traded field goals late for a 19-13 Winnipeg halftime lead. Montreal opened the second half with Smiths 49-yard TD pass to a wide open Stafford to take a one-point lead. Willy answered with a 49-yard toss to Nic Moore to set up Hajrullahus third field goal of the game, only to see Washington fumble a punt to set up a Whyte 37-yarder to put Montreal back in front. Early in the fourth quarter, Smith found Green in the end zone for a five-yard TD, but the Winnipeg defence struck back when Randle picked off a pass and ran it in from 28 yards. The two-point conversion attempt that would have tied the game failed. Whyte added a 23-yard boot for a five-point lead with 2:18 left in the game. Then came the winning drive that has Winnipeg off to its best start since 2003. "It looks like were all starting to believe in it," said OShea. "We played a tough defence tonight. We pulled out a win in the dying moments, which is a great CFL game in terms of back and forth. Its good for the fans and the league." Among the crowd of 20,384 was Marc Trestman, who won two Grey Cups with Montreal before he was hired last season as head coach of the Chicago Bears. Trestman got a warm ovation as he was honoured in a half-time ceremony. Chip Cox had six tackles and passed Kelly Wiltshires to take over 10th place all-time in career tackles with 613. The career leader is Willie Pless with 1,207. The Bombers are back home Thursday to face Edmonton, while Montreal travels to B.C. on July 19 for their second meeting with the Lions in three weeks.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers opened the season with eight consecutive losses, but woke up Tuesday feeling better about themselves and the direction of whats been a disappointing season. The Bucs (1-8) became the last NFL team to win with a 22-19 victory over the embattled Miami Dolphins on Monday night, and coach Greg Schiano believes his players have the mettle to build on that success. "The thing you feel good about is our guys are learning through this adversity, not just trying to get through it," Schiano said Tuesday. Rookie Mike Glennon led a long fourth-quarter touchdown drive to put Tampa Bay ahead for good, and a defence that was unable to protect late leads in four of the clubs eight losses limited the Dolphins to 2 yards rushing. The Tampa Bay defence eliminated any chance for a Miami comeback with two timely sacks and an interception within a span of four plays to close out the win. After losing four times in the final 89 seconds or regulation or overtime, "We knew it was going to be on us. Everybody stepped up," said linebacker Lavonte David, who had seven tackles, one of them dropping Miamis Daniel Thomas for a second-quarter safety. Even Schiano said Monday night had a familiar feel after the Dolphins rallied from a 15-point deficit to take a 19-15 lead into the fourth quarter. The Bucs have lost four times in the final 89 seconds of regulation and overtime, including the previous week when they squandered a 21-point lead before falling in OT at Seattle. This time, Glennon regained the lead with an 80-yard drive that running back Bobby Rainey finished with a 1-yard run, and the defence put it away. "I dont care who you were in that stadium, there was part of you that said: Oh no, again? Schiano said. "And for our players to bow their necks, especially that (long TD) drive ... and then getting back and playing defence that last set to win the game was important," Schiano added, "because when we took the field, it was very clear: you stop them, you win." David was determined the defeence would not crumble.dddddddddddd "Right at the two-minute warning, I came in, brung the guys in and said: It aint going to happen again, man," David said. "Weve got to make all this stuff end right here, right now. Thats what happened." Schiano said now that the Bucs have won, players should be able to relax and perform without pressing for results. "Hopefully that kind of relieves some pressure off the guys and they can just go out and play," the second-year coach said. "Getting it out of the way, I dont care who you are, as the losses mount getting that (first) one win becomes harder and harder (to get)," Schiano added. "I hope now that our guys can just go out and play. Although theyve said theres no additional pressure, I think human nature puts that pressure on yourself." One of the keys to beating Miami, which was playing its first game since the start of a bullying scandal thats engulfed the Dolphins locker room, was a productive running game that took pressure off Glennon, who completed 11 of 21 passes for 139 yards, one touchdown and an interception. With 2012 Pro Bowl running back Doug Martin out for the season with a shoulder injury, Mike James made his third pro start. The rookie ran for 158 yards the previous week against the Seahawks and was off to another fast start with 41 yards on five carries when he broke his left ankle in the first quarter. Despite losing James, offensive co-ordinator Mike Sullivan remained committed to the run with Rainey and Brian Leonard combining for 102 yards on 28 carries. Tampa Bay finished with 140 yards on the ground after gaining a season-high 205 against the Seahawks. "Our offensive line, the credit goes to them -- persistent, believing what theyre doing, and the running backs running the plays the way theyre supposed to," Schiano said. "Were banged up, playing without a lot of the original starters, but again there are still a lot of good players out there playing," the coach added. "Were going to have a chance to win every football game. Weve just got to go out and execute."
