Ravens can’t complete comeback against Laurier

After a strong defensive game against McMaster the previous week, the Ravens football team’s offence kicked it into high gear against the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks on Sept. 9. Quarterback Michael Arruda bounced back from a difficult performance, going 27 for 51 with 441 yards of passing. Laurier was the first to strike, jumping out to a 7-0 lead off a big 73-yard pass by quarterback Michael Knevel to receiver Daniel Bennet.

Ravens fall to McMaster in home opener

On a cold, rainy evening on Sept. 3, the McMaster Marauders made their way to MNP Park to take on the 1-0 Carleton Ravens in the Ravens’ first home game of the 2017 season. McMaster was able to control the game throughout and stuff the Carleton offence, winning by a final score of 23-9. In front of a sold-out crowd, the game promised to be the first test for the Ravens in the fifth year of their program since it was revived in 2013. A tough test came in the form of McMaster, who have been perennial contenders in the Ontario University Athletic (OUA) conference. Last season, Carleton opened their year at McMaster with a 40-10 loss, while both teams went on to earn […]
