The Toronto Argonauts are officially Grey Cup champions.
It was never easy and not many gave them a chance, but in the end, it was the Argonauts who beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 24-23.
It all came down to a field goal for Winnipeg to win it, but after a block by the Argos, they knew they had the victory.
While everyone thought it would be quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson that would lead the team to victory, it was the backup Chad Kelly that gave the team a chance after Bethel-Thompson went down with a thumb injury in the second half.
Toronto Argonauts Argonauts linebacker Henoc Muamba intercepted Blue Bombers quarterback Zach Collaros late in the game, while Robbie Smith blocked a field goal in the final minute to seal the victory and deny Winnipeg’s three-peat.
Muamba has been named the Grey Cup most outstanding player and outstanding Canadian.
“We walked into this game with total confidence,” Muamba said in his acceptance speech. “We knew what we had as a team and everyone in that locker room believed. We knew that the odds were against us… We are champs forever.”
