GREY CUP GAME AT TORONTO (Saturday, November 25 - 27101) TORONTO
ARGONAUTS (10-6-1) 13, WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS (12-5) 0 - The
1950 Grey Cup is remembered more for its poor field conditions than the
actual game itself. The Mud Bowl featured two teams facing each other
for the sixth and final time at the Canadian football classic. The
muddy conditions at Toronto’s Varsity Stadium made for a
game, but didn’t prevent the Argonauts from winning their
Cup title. The Argos kicked for what turned out to be the winning point
in the first quarter. Winnipeg’s Tom Casey misjudged Joe
from the Blue Bombers 49-yard line, as the ball went over his head and
into the end zone for a rouge. Krol avoided a potential turnover later
in the half when he dropped the ball on an attempted kick in Bombers
territory. Krol picked it up and raced around the end for 10 yards,
putting the ball on the Winnipeg 15. After failing to make another
first down, Nick Volpe kicked a 21-yard field goal to put the Argos up
4-0. Before the end of the first half, the Argos increased the margin
to 7-0. Toronto’s Billy Bass recovered Indian Jack Jacobs at
Winnipeg 19. After two running plays from Ulysses �Crazy
and Teddy Toogood, Volpe was successful on a field goal from the
Winnipeg 23. The Argos completed the scoring in the third quarter.
Toronto’s Jake Dunlap blocked Jacobs’ kick which
the Boatmen recovered
at the Winnipeg 20. Billy Bass and Al Dekdebrun carried to the
four-yard line, and Toogood to the one. On third down Dekdebrun slid
across the goal line for the only touchdown of the game. Volpe missed
on the convert, but Krol later kicked a single for the final point of
the game. Dekdebrun directed Toronto’s ground offence all
steamrolled the Winnipeg defence for 232 yards. As for the Canadian
Rugby Union, they were criticized for the poor field conditions. Some
pointed to a lack of tarpaulin at Varsity Stadium; others believed the
game could have been played a week earlier to avoid adverse weather
conditions. Wrote one writer, “Because the field was like a
wallow, what should have been a football classic turned into a slogging
show.” It was the last time a team has been shut out in the
