Editorial: The Colonel By Classic deserves more attention

Despite having been in the top 10 nationwide for U Sports hockey earlier this season, the Ravens men’s hockey gets little love from its own campus. The Colonel By Classic, the annual rivalry game between Carleton and University of Ottawa (U of O), was held in the TD Place arena, a rink with 10,000 seats. But, only 2,268 people attended the game. The Colonel By Classic should be planned in such a way that it generates the same amount of excitement as the Panda Game and Capital Hoops. It was a disservice to the team and to students to schedule the game around midterm season, when students are too busy with their studies to even consider attending the game. Rather, […]

Men’s hockey extends win streak to six

The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team extended their winning streak to six games as they beat the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees 4-2 on Nov. 10, and then defeated the Queens Gaels 4-1 the following day. The Ravens offence got off to an early start against the U of O, as Ravens forward Ryan Van Stralen fired the puck into the back of the net past Gee-Gee’s goalie Graham Hunt just two minutes into the game. Only seconds later, Ravens forward Fabian Walsh took a pass from teammate Brett Gustavsen and wired the puck past Hunt to take a 2-0 lead. Before the first period could end, Ravens forward Dalen Hedges put a backhand shot through Hunt’s legs, […]

Women’s hockey handed tough loss

The Carleton Ravens women’s hockey team dropped their game against the Concordia Stingers 3-2 on Oct. 27. The Ravens got off to a fast start, scoring on the first shot of the game as Samantha Jones chipped the puck to Carly Wouters who fired it past Stingers goalie Frederike Berger-Lebel two minutes in.

Men’s hockey splits opening weekend games in overtime

The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team split their first two games of the season this weekend coming away with one overtime win against the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees on Oct. 12 and one overtime loss at the hands of the McGill Redmen on Oct. 14. Carleton, who plays in the fearsome Ontario University Athletics  (OUA) East Division, were expected to have a difficult start as the season opened against the young Gee-Gees and the always contending Redmen. The Ravens are coming off a disappointing 2016-17 season with a first-round playoff exit and the departure of many veteran players. This year marks the U of O’s second season back after the suspension of the men’s hockey program in […]

Editorial: Extend marketing of rivalry games to other CU sports

Panda Game is the largest U Sports event in Canada with last year’s crowd coming in at 23,329 spectators and this year’s game on pace to sell just as well. Along with Panda Game, Carleton has heavily marketed rivalry games with the University of Ottawa (U of O) in basketball (Capital Hoops) and men’s hockey (the Colonel By Classic). While these varsity sports pull massive crowds with their rivalry games, club sports are neglected and their games against the U of O come and go with little to no marketing. For example, this month the Ravens baseball team played their rivals from the U of O in a three-game O-Train Series. Given the lack of marketing of this series, how […]
