TORONTO, Nov 25 (Reuters) - The Toronto Argonauts were crowned the Canadian Football League's (CFL) 100th Grey Cup champions on Sunday after crushing the Calgary Stampeders 35-22.

Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray, brought to Toronto during the offseason in a trade that shook the league, opened the game with an interception but ended with 231 passing yards, including touchdowns passes to Chad Owens and Andre Durie.

Backup quarterback Jarious Jackson completed a one-yard pass to Dontrelle Inman for another Toronto touchdown while Pacino Horne picked off Calgary quarterback Kevin Glenn and returned it 25 yards for another score.

The Toronto defense limited the visiting Stampeders to just four Rene Paredes field goals and a safety until allowing a Calgary touchdown in the final seconds.

Argonauts running back Chad Kackert was named the game's most outstanding player after piling up 195 yards of offense. (Editing by Frank Pingue)
