EDMONTON — The five pivotal plays from the 106th Grey Cup:

Turnover gets Stamps Rolling

At 10:11, Calgary capitalizes on a Ciante Evans interception. Stamps running back Don Jackson takes a screen pass from QB Bo Levi Mitchell and runs untouched for 21 yards to the end zone. Calgary would never relinquish the lead. Calgary 7 Ottawa 0.

Calgary Takes Control

At 6:13 of the second quarter, Mitchell, running to his left, drops in a 17-yard pass that Lemar Durant catches at the goal line over Ottawa defender Jonathan Rose, then Durant stretches his hand past the pylon for the major. Calgary 14 Ottawa 3.

Ottawa Finds Life

At 12:35 of the second quarter, Ottawa receiver Julian Feoli-Gudino takes a 25-yard strike from QB Trevor Harris in stride at Calgary’s 30-yard line, then fights off two defenders to squeak past the pylon for the major. A two-point convert puts Ottawa back in the game 14-11.

Williams Wields the Dagger

With 20 seconds left in the half, Calgary kick returner Terry Williams fields a Richie Leone punt at his own 13-yard-line, evades two tackles, slips on the turf, rights himself and runs straight up the middle 97 yards for a touchdown, the longest punt return in Grey Cup history. Calgary 21 Ottawa 11.

Ottawa’s Last Gasp Snuffed

At 6:02 of the fourth quarter, Calgary linebacker Jamar Wall knocks down a Harris pass at Calgary’s 7-yard line, forcing the ball back to Calgary on downs and leaving Ottawa behind two major scores with just half a quarter to play. It proved to be too much for Ottawa to overcome.
