The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have recorded the franchise's first playoff win since 2011.
Andrew Harris rushed for 153 yards and had a late fourth quarter touchdown as Winnipeg defeated the Saskatchewan Roughriders 23-18 Sunday in Regina in the CFL’s West Division semifinal.
The Bombers last post-season victory was a 19-3 win over the Hamilton Tiger Cats in the East Division final seven years ago.
Harris has held to just 27 yards in the first half but rumbled for 126 yards in the final 30 minutes.
Matt Nichols completed 16-of-22 passes for 168 yards.
A Kevin Fogg interception set up Nichols’ lone touchdown pass which was a 20-yarder to Drew Wolitarsky with 3:28 remaining in the first half.
Wolitarsy had a team high five catches for 68 yards.
Justin Medlock was good on three-of-four field goal attempts.
Winnipeg will face the Calgary Stampeders at McMahon Stadium Sunday (3:30 p.m.) in the West final.
The winner advances to the Grey Cup the following Sunday at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.
