Guelph, Ontario - The Carleton Ravens have their first five-win season in modern history following a 35-24 win at Guelph.
While the Ravens prepare for the post-season the 2022 regular season will go down in the record book with a number of individual and team records falling during the season.
Four Ravens rushed for over 25 or more yards while veteran quarterback Tanner DeJong passed for over 200 yards while record two touchdown passes.
After falling behind 3-0 early, Tristan Rinaldis plunged around the pile to get the Ravens on the board before Brandon Forcier forced the Gryphons to concede the rouge on the kickoff for an 8-2 lead.
The Ravens wouldn't let up from there, DeJong's favourite target Kaseem Ferdinand got the Ravens back on the board with a 7-yard touchdown catch on the edge of the end zone for the 18-11 first-half lead.
It was more of the same in the second half for the Ravens, after Guelph cut the lead to 4 with a field goal DeJong would once again find Ferdinand, this time on a 22-yard touchdown to break the game open. Josh Ferguson would add a 2-yard rushing touchdown of his own and Forcier would tack on an 18-yard chip shot for a field goal to put the Ravens up big.
Guelph would add a late touchdown to cut the lead, but the Ravens' offence had done enough.
With the win, the Ravens become the first team in modern history to record a win over Guelph while Corey Grant became the first head coach to win 5 times in their first season with the program.
The Ravens will now head South in the first round of the OUA playoffs for a matchup against the Laurier Golden Hawks.
