November 13, 1995|By SPORTSTICKER

CALGARY, Alberta -- Doug Flutie passed for 259 yards and two touchdowns yesterday to lead the Calgary Stampeders to their third trip to the Grey Cup in five years with a 37-4 rout of the Edmonton Eskimos in the Northern Division final.

The Stampeders, who won 10 of 11 home games, will play the Baltimore Stallions in next Sunday's Grey Cup in Regina, Saskatchewan. Calgary won the 1992 Grey Cup and also advanced to the title game in 1991.

Flutie completed 21 of 30 passes, including scoring strikes of 5 yards to David Sapunjis and 1 yard to Tony Stewart.

Stewart also scored on a 1-yard run, helping the Stampeders build a 30-4 halftime lead. Mark McLoughlin kicked five field goals for Calgary, which held the Eskimos to a 15-yard field goal by Sean Fleming and a single off a 52-yard punt. Edmonton rode a seven-game winning streak into the game, but was beaten by the Stampeders for the third time this year.
