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.

Men’s soccer remains undefeated after high scoring weekend

Following a difficult previous week where the Carleton Ravens men’s soccer team tied two top Ontario University Athletics (OUA) teams, the Ravens were able to get back on track, securing two important wins.

This changed in late in the first half of the match when Ravens midfielder Emad Houache was able to break free and set up Dante Cobise to blast one into the back of the net.

Women’s hockey adds 10 recruits for upcoming season

The Ravens women’s hockey team has added 10 new players for this upcoming season. The team will be hoping to snap their four-year-long playoff drought and to improve on its disappointing 4-14-2 record from the 2016 season. On the offensive side the Ravens have added five new players to the team. Carleton finished last season in last place in goals per game in the Réseau du Sport Étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) and 26th in the U Sports rankings with 1.95 goals per game. The five new acquisitions up front are meant to address the weakness that was their scoring. The Ravens are adding Taylor Killip, a forward for the Pacific Steelers of the Junior Women’s Hockey League last season. In that time, Killip […]
