96th grey cup in montreal

the calgary stampeters just beat the montreal allouettes 22-14 in the 96th edition of the grey cup. the calgary defense was huge in the second half holding montreal to one point. calgary's touchdown late in the first half i think was the turning poing. sandro deangelis was named most valuable canadian and henry burris was named most valueable player. so theres another cfl season.
