REDBLACKS CLINCH FIRST, BEAT HAMILTON 44-28

OTTAWA - Henry Burris set a single season record for completions, Greg Ellingson caught three touchdown passes and the Ottawa Redblacks clinched first place in the East Division with a 44-28 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday.

Burris finished the day with 28 receptions to give him 481 on the season. It broke the old record of 479 set by Ricky Ray with the Edmonton Eskimos back in 2005.

Burris set the record with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Brad Sinopoli early in the fourth quarter to give the Redblacks a 37-26 lead. He then added to the record on his first pass of the next Ottawa series, connecting with Ellingson for a 43-yard gain.

Seconds later Burris threw his sixth touchdown pass of the game as Chris Williams converted a 24-yard catch and run score. The conversion by Chris Milo gave the Redblacks a 44-28 lead.

A win or a loss by less than six points would have given Ottawa the East division regular-season crown.

The win means the Redblacks, who were 2-16 in their inaugural season a year ago, will host the East Final in two weeks. They will play the winner of next weekend's East semifinal between Hamilton and Toronto.

Ti-Cats are toast without their starting QB. Fans in Rider Nation can understand their pain. An Ottawa vs. Edmonton Grey Cup would be a nice change from the usual Hamilton and Calgary Grey Cup routine.
