1997 Grey Cup (November 16 at Edmonton - 60,431)
TORONTO ARGONAUTS (16-3) 47, SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS (10-10) 23 - The Toronto Argonauts arrived in Edmonton in 1997 looking to become the first team since the Eskimos’ dynasty years of 1978 to 1982 to win consecutive Grey Cup titles. All that stood in the way were the upstart Saskatchewan Roughriders. With Toronto’s league-best 15 regular season wins compared to Saskatchewan’s eight, the majority of the pundits predicted an Argos rout. They were proven correct. It took awhile for the Argos to get rolling, but when they did it was no contest. The Roughriders held their only lead of the game in the first quarter courtesy of a Paul McCallum field goal. But the Argos took the lead for good when the CFL’s top rookie, Derrell †Mookie’ Mitchell, scored on a 14-yard touchdown reception. The Argos added another major early in the second quarter on Robert Drummond’s six-yard catch. He had earlier kept the scoring drive alive with a 31-yard reception. With the Argos in front 17-3, the Roughriders scored their first touchdown on a three-yard run by Shawn Daniels. Saskatchewan failed on the convert attempt. Mike Vanderjagt kicked a short field goal on the final play of the half as the Argos took a 20-9 lead into intermission. If the outcome wasn’t decided already, it was made clear on the first play of the third quarter when Adrion Smith returned the opening kickoff 95 yards for a Grey Cup-record setting touchdown. Doug Flutie put together two more touchdown drives before the conclusion of the quarter. He ended a five-play, 73-yard drive scoring on a 10-yard run. Flutie appeared to call his own number a second time near the end zone, but he threw to Michael †Pinball’ Clemons on a five-yard scoring play. With Toronto leading 44-9 in the fourth quarter, the Roughriders finally made some noise when a scrambling Reggie Slack connected with running back Mike Saunders for a 51-yard touchdown. Slack would end the scoring in the dying moments, taking advantage of a pass interference penalty to Toronto’s Lester Smith by scoring on a one-yard run. It marked Flutie’s final game in the CFL. The six-time Most Outstanding Player completed 30 of 38 pass attempts for 352 yards and three touchdowns. He was named Grey Cup MVP for the third time in his career. Don Matthews became the fifth head coach to win three consecutive Grey Cup titles, joining Billy Hughes, Ted Morris, Frank Ivy and Hugh Campbell.
