Ravens football season ends in heartbreak

The Carleton Ravens football team fell to the Guelph Gryphons on Oct. 21 by a score of 28-23 at MNP Park, ending the Ravens’ season and leading to the team missing the playoffs for the first time in three years. Before the game, the Ravens honoured graduating players such as fifth-year receiver Kyle Van Wynsberghe and defensive end Kene Onyeka. Van Wynsberghe would end the season with 2,000 career receiving yards—the second Raven to do so. The Gryphons struck first only four minutes into the game as kicker Gabriel Ferraro sent the ball through the uprights from 25-yards out. Three minutes later, he hit another giving the Gryphons a 6-0 lead. Early into the second quarter Ravens kicker Michael Domagala […]

Ravens football dominates against U of T

The Carleton Ravens football team dominated the University of Toronto (U of T) Varsity Blues 43-0 at MNP Park on Oct. 14. The game was a must win for the Ravens who currently sit in seventh place in Ontario University Athletics (OUA) with a record of 3-4 and are in a battle for one of the final two playoff spots.

Ravens kicker Michael Domagala followed that up with a successful kick which sent the ball flying through the uprights to give Carleton a 7-0 lead. […]

Ravens playoff hopes hang by thread

Under the Friday night lights, Carleton faced a stiff test in their quest to get their season back on track, facing off against the Western Mustangs. Western, the top-ranked team in Ontario and the fourth-ranked team in the nation, gave the Ravens a lot more than they could handle in a runaway 51-14 victory. The Ravens hoped to bring in momentum from their big win against the University of Ottawa (U of O), which Ravens head coach Steve Sumarah said would be necessary in order to have a hope of making the playoffs. Western made quick work of the Ravens’ defence right out of the gates, torching them on their opening possession. It took just under three minutes for Mustangs […]

Letter: Taking a knee is taking a stand for justice in sports

Sometimes all it takes is one idea to grab the attention of an entire nation. Muhammad Ali refusing to enlist for the Vietnam War, LeBron James wearing Black Lives Matter shirts to protest the death of Eric Garner. The list goes on. Today, we are seeing a new movement mobilizing—one highlighted by a league of professional football players and the most powerful political voice in America. On Sept. 24, the National Football League (NFL) decided to join in solidarity against prejudiced comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump by having players, coaches, and owners join in linking arms and kneeling during the American national anthem. The rebellious showing of unity by the NFL has received mixed reactions from people all […]

Carleton Ravens win fourth Panda Game in a row

In front of another record-breaking, sell-out crowd, the Carleton Ravens marked their fourth consecutive Panda Game victory, defeating the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees by a score of 33-30 in double overtime. “This game is such a rivalry, this game is talked about weeks in advance and when you walk on that field there’s a whole lot of pride in both programs,” said Carleton Ravens head coach Steve Sumarah. But, this year’s Panda Game opened up with a deeper meaning to both sides. Carleton, coming off a blowout win last season, looked to turn around their season after a disappointing 1-3 start. For the U of O, tragedy rocked the team with the sudden death of defensive lineman […]
