Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Drew Willy says he enjoys performing in the fourth quarter, as evidenced by the team's 24-16 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday night.

Friday's win — on home turf, no less — marks the fourth time this season that Willy and the Bombers staged a late comeback for a victory.

"Definitely enjoy playing in the fourth quarters," Willy told reporters after the game at Investors Group Field.

"I just try to stay calm, cool and collected. I wish we would've played better in the first half, for sure."

The first half of the game was full of mistakes by both teams. But by the second half, play had vastly improved.

The win moves Winnipeg back atop the West Division, while the Alouettes have now dropped six games in a row.

Bombers head coach Mike O'Shea, who said he was happy with Friday's victory, was asked what he thinks of the team's 6-3 record at the halfway point in the season.

"It's too long a process to look back on nine games and really figure it out. We digest one game each week, you know, so we'll do the same with this one," he said.

"We'll take a look at the mistakes, fix them and come out prepared to play Saskatchewan."

Of course, O'Shea was referring to the Labour Day Classic between the Bombers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders that is slated for next Sunday in Regina.
