Grey Cup Playoffs: Als and Riders In Cup Final Rematch

The semifinal---or divisional final---round of the Canadian Footbal League's Grey Cup playoffs took place with two games on Sunday.

At Montreal:

Avon Cobourne carried the ball 17 times for 163 yards and a touchdown and picked up 53 receiving yards as the Montreal Alouettes throttled the visiting Toronto Argonauts 48-17 in the Eastern Division Final.

At Calgary, Alberta:

The Saskatchewan Roughriders knocked off the hosts Calgary Stampeders 20-16 to win the Western Division Final.  Chris Getzlaf, Cary Koch, and Wes Cates all scored touchdowns for the Riders.

The Alouettes and Roughriders will have a rematch for the Grey Cup title next Sunday at Edmonton, Alberta.  In last year's title game, played at Calgary, with Saskatchewan leading 27-25, Montreal kicker Damon Duval missed a 43-yard field goal attempt with no time remaining.  However, the Riders were penalized 10 yards for having too many men (13) on the field, enabling the same Damon Duval to kick the game-winning field goal for the Alouettes from 33 yards out.
