MONTREAL - The Toronto Argonauts are going to the Grey Cup game.
Quarterback Ricky Ray turned in an impressive performance and Chad Owens had a record-setting day in the Argonauts' 27-20 victory over the Montreal Alouettes in the East Division final Sunday before 50,112 at Olympic Stadium.
The Argonauts reached the CFL championship game for the first time since 2004, when they won their 15th Grey Cup with a victory over B.C.
The game next Sunday against the West Division champion will be played at Rogers Centre, the Argonauts' home field.
Owens piled up 207 receiving yards on 11 catches -- a Toronto playoff record -- and was the main target of the veteran Ray who was throwing strikes from the pocket all afternoon.
Ray threw a touchdown pass to Dontrelle Inman and Chad Kackert scored on a long touchdown run. Swayze Waters added three field goals for Toronto, which had lost to Montreal in three previous East final meetings.
