Montreal wins back-to-back Grey Cups

Twice is better than nice for the Montreal Alouettes.

Avon Cobourne scored two touchdowns as the Alouettes dominated the second half to power Montreal to a 21-18 win over Saskatchewan in the 98th Grey Cup on Sunday at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

It's the second consecutive victory for the Als over the Riders.

In 2009 Damon Duval connected on his second attempt from 43 yards to lift Montreal to a 28-27 win. Saskatchewan was called for a too-many-players on the field penatly to allow a second chance after the Als' kicker missed on his first atempt.

Sunday's win was the third Grey Cup win in eight appearances since 2000 for Montreal.

Montreal receiver Jamel Richardson was named the game MVP while Saskatchewan defensive lineman Keith Shologan was the top Canadian.

NOTES - The 50-50 draw for Sunday's game was worth a whopping $127,229 . . . Bachman & Turner made their first Grey Cup appearance but Randy Bachman played at the 2000 Grey Cup in Calgary as a member of The Guess Who . . . The Alouettes beat the Eskimos 25-16 in 2002 when the Grey Cup was last held here .  . . . Referee Bud Steen worked the final game of his 30-year career Sunday. Steen appeared in his 510th career contest and seventh Grey Cup.
