Sports Blog: How to get the most out of intramural sports

Over the last four years, I’ve started to amass a small collection of Ravens League-branded intramural team shirts.

Women’s hockey falls to McGill in high scoring affair

The Carleton Ravens women’s hockey team suffered a 7-4 defeat at the hands of the McGill Martlets in Montreal on Feb. 24. “We kept battling till the end.

Carleton started the game with energy, and forward Delaney Ross scored less than a minute into the first period. Despite the Ravens quick start McGill answered back midway through the first period when Martlet forward Olivia Atkinson scored on a bad Raven turnover to tie the game at 1-1. With less than 10 seconds left […]

The Carleton Ravens women’s hockey team fell by a score of 5-1 to the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees on Nov. 14 at the Ice House. “We didn’t start well,” Ravens head coach Pierre Alain said after the game. “You need to work . . . but we didn’t work enough, we were outworked today.” The Gee-Gees opened the scoring with a controversial goal midway through the first period, as players in the crease knocked over Ravens goaltender Katelyn Steele before U of O forward Carol-Ann Upshall shot the puck into the wide open net.
