Hamilton Tiger-Cats outclassed Ottawa Redblacks for first win of 2022 – Hamilton

Dane Evans threw a 3-yard touchdown run to Tim White with 19 seconds left, leading the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to their first win of the season, 25-23 over the visiting Ottawa Redblacks on Saturday night.

For a moment late in the fourth quarter, it looked like the Ticats’ season-opening losing streak would reach five games after Evans fumbled deep in Hamilton territory and Ottawa’s Laurenzo Mauldin recovered it in the one yard line.

Redblacks QB Caleb Evans ran for a one-yard touchdown on the next play to give his team a 23-18 lead with just over seven minutes left in regulation.
