The Toronto Argonauts won the 105th Grey Cup 27-24 against the the Calgary Stampeders in a game for the ages Nov. 26.

A fumble during a return at the 109-yard line allowed Cassius Vaughn to run for a touchdown in the snow to tie the game. Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray passed for 297 yards and in the process, became the all-time leader in Grey Cup wins for a starting quarterback with four wins under his belt.

Coach Dave Dickerson of the Calgary Stampeders was disappointed with Calgary’s second defeat in as many Grey Cup games.

“[We] couldn’t finish the deal. It’s heartbreaking, it really is.  There’s nothing I can do about it at this point for our guys. I love ’em, but it’s a heartbreaker,” Dickenson said to the Canadian Press.

Shania Twain performed during the half-time show to a sold out crowd of 36,154 at Ottawa’s TD Place.

Founded in 1873, the Toronto Argonauts are the oldest professional sports team in North America and still use their original name.  They have won the Grey Cup 17 times and been in the finals 23 times.

With last place in 2016 to the Grey Cup win in 2017, the Argonauts couldn’t fill the BMO stadium all season. Many commentators believe this win might encourage fans to show up in 2018.
