Andrew Harris, Winnipeg Blue Bombers run over Hamilton Tiger-Cats to win 107th Grey Cup
The Grey Cup is coming back to Winnipeg for the first time in 29 years.
The Blue Bombers started strong and didn’t let up, cruising past the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-12 to win their first Grey Cup since 1990.
Andrew Harris led the way for the Bombers, rushing for 134 yards and scoring two total touchdowns, including an 18-yard diving TD catch from Chris Streveler late in the second quarter. Harris was named both Most Valuable Player and Most Valuable Canadian for his stellar night.
Justin Medlock also kicked six field goals in the victory to help the Bombers seal things.
The Bombers’ defence took control early, interception Hamilton’s Dane Evans on just the third play of the game. Winnipeg went on to take a 21-6 lead at halftime and closed out the game in the second half without much of an issue.
Hamilton was dealt a big blow while trying to climb back into the game as MOP Brandon Banks was ruled out for the game with a lower-body injury early in the fourth quarter.
Following their loss Sunday night, the Ticats are still looking for their first Grey Cup since 1999.
Hamilton was the CFL's top team during the regular season with a 15-3 record. Winnipeg was third in the West at 11-7.
