The Edmonton Eskimos are heading to Montreal following a 29-21 victory over the Blue Bombers in Saturday's East Semi-Final from Canad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg.

The victory was historic in that Edmonton became the first West Division team to earn a playoff win as a crossover squad since the CFL adopted the concept in 1996.

A pair of rushing touchdowns by running back A.J. Harris and field goals by Noel Prefontaine were the difference in the contest.

Harris ran 12 times for 33 yards and caught four passes for 38 yards while Prefontaine had field goals of 23 and 28 yards and also had singles off a 38-yard try and a punt.

The Bombers got touchdowns on a 78-yard pass from Kevin Glenn to Romby Bryant and a 93-yard punt return by Jason Armstead. It was deja vu all over again, as Armstead ran an 84-yard punt return back for a touchdown against Edmonton earlier this season.

With just over two minutes remaining in the first half, defensive end Fred Perry tipped, then intercepted a Glenn pass and ran it in for a touchdown to secure Edmonton's lead heading into the locker rooms.

In the second half, the Eskimos came out storming. Harris scored his second touchdown of the day midway through the third quarter, opening up a two touchdown lead.

A single by Prefontaine after his kick rolled out the side end zone and a field goal in the fourth quarter added to the Eskimos' lead while the Bombers could only muster up a late fourth quarter field goal by rookie kicker Alexis Serna.

Milt Stegall, who holds the CFL's all-time records for receiving and touchdowns scored, had five catches for 56 yards in what could be the 14-year veteran's final game.

The Eskimos now head to Montreal to face the Alouettes in the East Final, Saturday at 1pm et/10am pt on TSN and TSN HD. Edmonton has played the Alouettes twice this year. Montreal (11-7) won 40-4 at home in late September and Edmonton (10-8) won 37-14 on Oct. 31.
