Toronto Argonauts hoisted 18th Grey Cup
The GIST: Move over Winnipeg, there’s a new champ in town. The Toronto Argonauts hoisted their league-leading 18th Grey Cup last night, usurping the reigning back-to-back champion Blue Bombers in a down-to-the-wire 24–23 win. History yet again repeats itself.
How it happened: The underdog Argos came out hot with an early first-quarter field goal. But the Blue Bombers stayed strong, answering each offensive drive by Toronto quarterback Chad Kelly to finish the first half with a 10–7 Bombers lead.
- And the action didn’t stop there. Toronto must have been inspired by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard’s energetic halftime performance, as the team had an outstanding fourth quarter — thanks to running back AJ Ouellette and Robbie Smith’s blocked field goal — to secure the come-from-behind victory. Whew!
What’s next: Craving more Canadian football? We thought you might be. Tune in to Saturday’s Vanier Cup title game where the Saskatchewan Huskies and Laval Rouge et Or battle for the title of Canada’s top university squad, at 1:15 p.m. ET in London, Ontario.
