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 […]

Women’s rugby secures playoff spot for first time in program history

The Carleton Ravens women’s rugby team defeated the McGill Martlets 33-21 over the weekend, securing their first playoff appearance in varsity team history.

This year the program has been having their best season yet and translated that success into the standings. The Ravens’ game against eighth ranked McGill started off well for the Ravens. Ravens prop Sarah-Jane Vezina was able to open up the scoring, giving the Ravens an early five-point lead and later found herself in the try zone again with her second try of the game.

The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team avenged last seasons playoff loss on Nov. 14.

Men’s hockey Ravens finish second in OUA East division

The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team took one of two games Feb. 8-9, defeating the Nipissing University Lakers 4-3 on Friday night, but followed that up with a 5-2 loss against the Ryerson University Rams. Despite missing five regulars from the lineup, the Ravens still had enough to pick up the win Feb. 8 against the Lakers. Ravens starting goaltender Ryan Dube stood tall for the Ravens in the win, coming up big when he was needed. “We got some big saves from Dube. Although we outshot them, I thought that he certainly took away their scoring chances, especially early on,” Ravens head coach Marty Johnston said. Nipissing struck first, but Matt Stanisz responded with his first of three goals […]
