TORONTO -- Mike Clemons took the opening kickoff 91 yards to give the Toronto Argonauts a lead they never relinquished en route to a 43-7 victory over the visiting Montreal Alouettes, formerly the Baltimore Stallions, in the Canadian Football League Eastern Conference championship game yesterday.

Toronto, coached by Don Matthews, who won the Grey Cup last year with the Stallions, will play in the title game Sunday at 6: 30 p.m. in Hamilton against the Edmonton Eskimos, who beat the host Calgary Stampeders, 15-12.

Argonauts quarterback Doug Flutie ran for two touchdowns and passed for one.

Montreal didn't score until 9: 16 had expired in the final quarter, when Tracy Ham passed 19 yards to Nigel Williams to make it 36-7.
