WINNIPEG - Andrew Harris, the 2019 Grey Cup MVP, returned to the Winnipeg line up and ran for 136 yards and one touchdown as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers sent the Saskatchewan Roughriders packing with a 21-17 victory last night to claim the West Division title for the 2nd straight season at IG Field.
The result set up a Grey Cup rematch next weekend in Hamilton. The defending Grey Cup champion Blue Bombers will face the Tiger-Cats at Tim Hortons Field after Hamilton beat Toronto 27-19 in the East final.
Harris, playing his first game since October 15th because of an injured knee, had 23 carries and a three-yard TD run in front of 31,160 fans at IG Field, who despite the chilly conditions supported the Bombers right until the bitter end. Winnipeg also got touchdowns from receiver Rasheed Bailey and backup quarterback Sean McGuire on a sneak. Kicker Sergio Castillo made all three converts.
The Grey Cup game kickoffs at 5pm next Sunday on TSN.
