CALGARY - The Montreal Alouettes are Grey Cup champions.
Damon Duval's 33-yard field goal with no time left capped a fourth-quarter rally from a 10-point deficit in a 28-27 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
A failed attempt moments earlier was negated by a Saskatchewan penalty for too many men on the field, and he didn't make a mistake on his second chance.
Avon Cobourne ran for one touchdown while Anthony Calvillo connected with Ben Cahoon for another to set up the comeback.
Montreal trailed 14-3 at the half and 20-10 after three quarters.
Anthony Calvillo threw a TD to Jamel Richardson while Damon Duval booted another field goal and a single for Montreal, the top team in the CFL at 15-3 this season.
The Alouettes avoided a sixth loss in seven Grey Cup appearances over the past 10 years.
Darian Durant threw for one touchdown to Andy Fantuz and ran for another for Saskatchewan, which was seeking a second Grey Cup title in three years.
Luca Congi added four field goals and Louie Sakoda added a single for Saskatchewan.
