Winnipeg Blue Bombers earn Grey Cup berth with win over Roughriders

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers advanced to the Grey Cup with a 20-13 win over the host Saskatchewan Roughriders in Sunday’s CFL West Division final.

The Bombers meet the East Division’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats in next Sunday’s championship game in Calgary. The Ticats downed the Edmonton Eskimos 36-16 in Sunday’s East final.

Kenny Lawler caught a touchdown pass for Winnipeg and Justin Medlock kicked field goals from 44, 43, 32 and 13 yards for the win.

“I did enjoy it,” head coach Mike O’Shea said. “Look at that finish. That game was wild at the end, so I enjoyed every minute of that.

“It’s easy to believe in our guys. We’re gonna find a way to get it done. I know there was a crossbar and it’s kind of anti-climactic really. If that film traveled across North America — how could anybody not love our game.”
