The Argos then got lucky twice.
Toronto's defence, under the guidance of former Calgary assistant Chris Jones, held CFL rushing leader Jon Cornish to 57 yards while pressuring quarterback Kevin Glenn before Ray's seven yard TD pass to Andre Durie late in the game cemented the Argonauts' 35 22 Jogger Nike
And it became obvious early who the crowd's team of choice was as Calgary players received polite applause during the pre game introductions before Rogers Centre exploded with loud chants of "Argos" when it was time for the Toronto offence to come on to the field. Not surprisingly, the loudest cheers were for receiver Chad Owens the CFL's outstanding player and Ray, the club's offensive catalysts in 2012.
to connect, Ray was finally rewarded with a 62 yard reception to a wide open Jason Barnes that set up Waters' 16 yard field goal for a 17 3 lead.
"We didn't start well. We didn't take advantage of their turnover and they got two touchdowns on theirs," Stampeders coach John Hufnagel said. "But the bottom line was Nike Women Bottoms
Toronto ended the half emphatically on backup Jarious Jackson's one yard TD pass to Inman with 20 seconds remaining. Jackson's pass came after Toronto struggled on short yardage run attempts in last weekend's 27 20 East Division final win in Montreal.
Foley's recovery of a Cornish fumble gave Toronto possession at the Calgary 44 and led to Ray's five yard TD strike to Owens to cap a six play, 44 yard drive at 8:03, thrilling the Rogers Centre sellout. Horne recorded the biggest play of the half, going low to pick off then getting up and returning it for the touchdown. Glenn threw inside, seemingly expecting Price to break to his left but the Stampeders receiver went to his right, leaving Horne all alone for the interception.
that we didn't get the ball into the end zone until the game was out of reach."
Calgary's other points came on a safety in finishing a dismal 0 3 versus Toronto this season.
Toronto running back Chad Kackert, with 133 yards rushing, was the game MVP while defensive end Ricky Foley claimed top Canadian honours. Ray, obtained last December in a blockbuster trade with Edmonton, finished 18 of 30 passing for 231 yards and two TDs.
The crowd, which included fans in the colours of all eight CFL teams, then joined Burton Cummings in singing "O Canada."
Calgary came in as the CFL's hottest team with 13 wins in 15 games after opening the season 3 4. Lions in last weekend's West final.
TORONTO A rugged defence staggered the Calgary Stampeders before Ricky Ray delivered the knockout punch and earned the Toronto Argonauts a historic Grey Cup victory Sunday.
Owens returned the kickoff 43 yards to the Toronto 53 before being tackled by kicker Rene Paredes, who got up, threw his helmet down and began yelling at his teammates.
Toronto's defence stacked the box against Cornish, holding him to 37 yards rushing on nine attempts, but 26 came on two carries late in the half. Calgary managed just five first downs as Glenn, forced to deal with excessive crowd noise on every snap, was just 5 of 11 passing for 141 yards 61 coming on a completion to Nik Lewis.
The Argos dominated a potent Calgary offence that scored 51 TDs this season tied with Montreal for the league lead holding it to just four field goals before Maurice Price's TD catch and two point conversion with 20 seconds remaining.
The first break came when Toronto kicker Swayze Waters plunked a 15 yard field goal off the upright, but got a second shot from 20 yards out thanks to a procedure call, which he made to put the Argos ahead 27 9. But the killer for Calgary came on the kickoff when Larry Taylor's 105 yard TD return was negated by a holding call.
Owens and Dontrelle Inman had Toronto's other touchdowns. Waters added the converts and two field goals while Noel Prefontaine added a single.
But Glenn and Co. had no answer for Toronto's swarming defence as the Argos ended their season with a fifth straight victory. Earlier this year, the CFL fined the Argos $5,000 for tampering after hiring Jones, ruling they didn't ask Calgary for permission to speak with the veteran defensive co ordinator.
The Argos' defence came up huge later in the second with Calgary facing second and five from the Toronto four yard line. Instead of passing, the Stampeders looked to receiver Romby Bryant on an end around but he was quickly tracked down by linebacker Ejiro Kuale for a seven yard loss. That forced the West Division champions to settle for the 18 yard field goal.
Calgary also boasted the CFL's top rusher in Cornish, the league's top Canadian after running for 1,457 yards this season.
Toronto's offence started tentatively but Ray tested Calgary's secondary with a willingness to go deep. After failing Nike Crew Socks Mens
Defensive back Pacino Horne brought the rabid Rogers Centre sellout crowd of 53,208 to its feet in the opening half. His key 25 yard TD interception return staked Toronto to a dominant 18 point halftime advantage.
Many of the enthusiastic fans at the Rogers Centre were on their feet as members of the RCMP marched the Grey Cup to centre field while country star Johnny Reid a former kicker at Bishop's University opened the pre game show with cheerleaders representing all eight CFL teams also on the turf.

Ray was a tidy 13 of 20 passing for 177 yards and a TD but completed 10 of 11 attempts for 130 yards on second downs as Toronto held the ball for over 17 minutes. What's more, the CFL's most penalized team this year took none in the opening half.

A suffocating Argos defence forced three turnovers and set Nike Socks Price up two TDs, earning Toronto a dominant 24 6 halftime lead. The Argos recovered a fumble, picked Glenn off and stopped rookie backup Matt Walter on a third down gamble.
After pop stars Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen headlined the halftime show, Calgary took possession to open the third, looking to respond after being thoroughly dominated. The Stampeders did respond with an 81 yard, nine play drive but only mustered a field goal to cut Toronto's lead to 24 9.
