 OTTAWA — Jon Cornish was back.

So was Nik Lewis.

But instead of riding the big names to a victory, it was rookie wideout Sederrik Cunningham doing the damage in the Calgary Stampeders' 32-7 win over the Ottawa RedBlacks on Sunday afternoon.

With the Stamps clinging to an 11-7 lead midway through the fourth quarter, Cunningham took over in his first-career CFL start.

After Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel eschewed a field-goal attempt from the 25-yard line and instead converted a third-and-one, Cunningham took a handoff on an end-around and danced into the endzone untouched to extend the lead to 18-7.

The next time he touched the ball a couple minutes later, the shifty 5-foot-11, 199-pounder reeled in a punt and busted it up the left sideline for a 66-yard touchdown.
