The Ottawa Redblacks moved to a 2-0 record on the season after Trevor Harris led the team to a 28-13 win over the Montreal Alouettes. Here are some takeaways from the Ottawa Redblacks’ second game on the season.
Trevor Harris Leads the Way
Trevor Harris got the start for the Redblacks to replace an injured Henry Burris. He completed the job and led the team to victory, completing 20 of 26 passes while also racking up 395 yards and three touchdowns.
Harris to Williams chemistry
It is only two games into the season, but Harris may already have found his new favourite weapon in Chris Williams. Williams had another stellar performance in game two, picking up 187 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions. With Harris definitely getting the start the next few upcoming games, be sure to keep your eye on Williams.
Travon Van Improves His Game
Travon Van may not have had the most promising game in week one in Edmonton (47 yards on 12 carries). However, he stepped his game up in Montreal in week two with 86 yards on 12 carries. Unfortunately, during the game in Montreal, Van appeared to suffer a minor injury. The good news is that Redblacks’ head coach, Rick Campbell, believes that the injury is not serious. If Van can keep improving his running game moving forward, it will be a huge boost to the team, as we already know how devastating the William Powell loss is.
Jonathan Rose’s Fast Start
First season in the league and Jonathan Rose is already showing why he belongs on the team. He made six defensive tackles against Montreal, and a total of ten defensive tackles for him in two games. With Rose off to a fast start and being a force on Ottawa’s defence, he will be a player to watch out for in upcoming games.
