CFL - The Grey Cup

In 1909, Earl Grey, the Governor-General of Canada, donated a trophy for the Rugby Football Championship of Canada. The trophy, which subsequently became known as The Grey Cup, was originally open to competition only for teams which were registered with the Canada Rugby Union. Since 1954 only the teams of the CFL have challenged for the Grey Cup.
These are the Canadian Teams Contending for the 2004 Grey Cup being played in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. Football Gambling is now huge in Canada.

Argonauts top Lions in 92nd Grey Cup


Damon Allen overcame a leg injury and starred in the Toronto Argonauts' 27-19 Grey Cup victory over the B.C. Lions. Allen ran for a pair of touchdowns, while passing to Robert Baker for another to key the victory.

Allen left the game with 4:44 remaining in the third quarter with a leg injury and was replaced by Michael Bishop for a couple of series. Allen returned though, and finished with 298 yards passing, completing 23-of-34 passes.

B.C.'s Dave Dickenson scrambled for a five-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to cut into the Toronto Argonauts' lead, but it's now 27-19 late in the fourth quarter of the 92nd Grey Cup game in Ottawa.

B.C. was called for back-to-back time count violations after the Dickenson touchdown, thwarting their efforts to go for a two point conversion and, to make matters worse, kicker Duncan O'Mahony missed the extra point.

Robert Baker came through as a big-play receiver for Allen, catching six passes for 101 yards in the game.

As Dickenson was successful passing the ball, the Lions were able to mix it up with Antonio Warren in the running game. Warren ran for 160 yards -- the second most in Grey Cup history -- on 18 carries.

The Lions ended the week-long speculation over who would start at quarterback by announcing that veteran Dickenson would start ahead of CFL Most Outstanding Player Casey Printers.

Dickenson missed a dozen games this year with a knee injury, playing in only six games during the regular season.

Printers threw for over 5,000 yards, with 35 touchdowns and ten interceptions, and gives the Lions a not-so-secret weapon on the bench. Printers had to leave the Western Final with a shoulder injury, but pronounced himself fit to play this week. Nevertheless, Buono opted for the veteran, and now seems destined to face questions about why the CFL's outstanding player didn't see the field.

The Lions used short kickoffs and short, directional punts to keep the ball away from the Argos' outstanding return tandem of Bashir Levingston and Arland Bruce, though Lions punter O'Mahony had some poor punts, regardless of direction, and the Argos had excellent field position throughout.

Surprise Lions starter Dave Dickenson was perfect on the opening drive, and finished off by connecting with slotback Jason Clermont for a 12-yard touchdown, giving B.C. a 7-0 lead 4:01 into the game.

Toronto responded with a 27-yard Noel Prefontaine field goal midway through the second quarter to make the score 7-3. Prefontaine missed a 44-yard field goal attempt in the first quarter, after a procedure penalty wiped out a successful 39-yarder.

Duncan O'Mahony made a 36-yard field goal midway through the third quarter to cut the lead to 24-13.

On the opening play of the game, Dickenson rolled out on play action -- catching the Argos geared up for the run -- and hit Jason Clermont for a big gain into Argos territory, setting the Lions' offence in motion.

The 92nd Grey Cup game was played in front of a sellout crowd of 51,242 at Frank Clair Stadium.
