Third Grey Cup with seven Montrealers


After beating Ottawa in the Eastern Final, the Alouettes flew to Vancouver where they faced the Edmonton Eskimos, a team they had never beaten in the Grey Cup.

Led by Sonny Wade, Don Sweet and Junior Ah You, the Alouettes battled through the rain at Empire Stadium, giving the Eskimos no quarter and easily winning 20 to 7.

Seven Alouettes players in this Grey Cup were from Montreal (Larry Smith, Pat Bonnett, Tony Proudfoot, Gary Chown, Wally Buono, Skip Eaman and Ian Mofford).
