OTTAWA, Ontario — Henry Burris threw a 93-yard touchdown pass to Greg Ellingson with 1:11 left and the Ottawa Redblacks beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 35-28 on Sunday in the Canadian Football League's East Division final to advance to the Grey Cup.
The second-year Redblacks will face the Edmonton Eskimos next Sunday in the title game in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Edmonton beat Calgary 45-31 last Sunday in the West final.
On the winning second-and-25 play, Ellingson made the catch with Hamilton defender Ed Gainey falling. After shedding Emmanuel Davis's attempted tackle, Ellingson streaked untouched into the end zone.
Burris was 17 of 32 for 326 yards, and also ran for a score. Ellingson had five receptions for 186 yards.
