CFL: Calgary Stampeders to meet Toronto Argos in Grey Cup

By Allen Cameron

VANCOUVER- The Calgary Stampeders’ 2012 joyride will take them all the way to Toronto for the 100th Grey Cup, and Kevin Glenn will go along for the ride for the first time in his career.

Glenn, whose only previous taste of the Grey Cup came in 2007, wearing street clothes on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers sideline with his arm in a cast after it was broken in the East Division final a week earlier, engineered arguably the biggest win of his 12-year pro career on Sunday afternoon at BC Place Stadium, throwing three touchdown passes in the Stamps’ 34-29 win over the reigning Grey Cup champion B.C. Lions.

With the victory in front of a boisterous crowd of 43,216, the Stamps advance to the Grey Cup next Sunday (4 p.m. MST, TSN, QR77 Radio) against the Toronto Argonauts, looking for their second Canadian Football League championship in John Hufnagel’s five-year tenure as coach and general manager, and their first since 2008.


CFL East final: Toronto Argonauts Grey Cup bound

MONTREAL—Even when they were down and failed to score on three tries from the one early in the game, Ricky Ray and the Argonauts never panicked.

Instead, the Boatmen maintained their poise and battled for 60 minutes to a thrilling 27-20 victory over the Montreal Alouettes in the CFL East final Sunday, sending the Argos to next Sunday’s 100th Grey Cup game at the Rogers Centre.

Ray completed 28 of 37 passes for 399 yards and a touchdown to Dontrelle Inman and was not intercepted. Toronto also got huge games from receiver Chad Owens — 11 catches, 207 yards — and tailback Chad Kackert — 139 yards and a touchdown. For many Argo veterans, the win before an announced — and stunned — crowd of 50,112 at Olympic Stadium erased the sting of losing 48-17 in the 2010 East final.–cfl-east-final-toronto-argonauts-grey-cup-bound
