OTTAWA - The Carleton Ravens are back to .500 after an impressive 46-7 over the Toronto Varsity Blues on Saturday afternoon.
Despite the impressive final score, the Ravens' defence was the story of the day holding Toronto to 62 yards of offence while recording eight sacks.
It took nearly the entire first quarter before the Ravens' offence found their stride before Tristan Ready hauled in a 20-yard touchdown pass from Tristan Lefebvre to open the scoring. Leading by seven after the first quarter, the Ravens blew the game open before the half.
While Carleton's defence continued to give Toronto fits in the second, the offense kept up it's momentum scoring 13 points to build a 20-0 lead at the half. Hunter Brown had a number of big plays for the Ravens including a 17-yard touchdown from Lefebvre with 1:19 to play in the quarter.
Carleton would recover a fumble on the second half's opening kickoff, setting up another Brandon Forcier field goal. Frederik Hachey caught a short seven-yard touchdown pass minutes later and Carleton led 30-0.
The Varsity Blues would get on the board on the final play of the third quarter to get on the board, but that would be all the stingy Carleton defence would allow on the day.
Hachey would haul in two more touchdowns on the afternoon in the fourth quarter, including the OUA touchdown pass for first-year quarterback Elijah Barnes.
With the win, the Ravens improve to 2-2 while the Varsity Blues are now 0-4. Carleton's next matchup is the 54th Annual Panda Game against the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees (2-2).
A sparse number of tickets remain for next Sunday's game, which kicks off at 12 noon from TD Place.
