Ward’s Missed 54-Yard Field Goal Was a “10 Out of 10 Kick”

By a matter of inches, Lewis Ward's last-second 54-yard field goal was no good in the Ottawa Redblacks' week six visit to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Caleb Evans Preparing to Start Once Again For Redblacks

As it turns out, the 2022 season hasn't been all that different from the 2021 season for the Ottawa Redblacks.
