In a weekend full of home openers and rivalry games, the Ravens second weekend of the season promises to be entertaining.
After picking up a pair of victories at home on Sunday the Carleton soccer teams look to stay as hot as the Ottawa weather when they travel to Queen's Friday afternoon.
The Ravens will be in tough. On the women's side the Gaels are a perfect 2-and-0 while the men's side will be looking to rebound after starting the season with a pair of draws.
Carleton won two close games at home Sunday, Chloe Doiron had the lone marker for the women while it took a Luca Piccioli penalty mid-way through the second half to give the men the victory.
After narrowly falling to the sixth-ranked Laurier Golden Hawks, Ravens football host number two-ranked Western in their home opener on Saturday. The Ravens are led by quarterback Tristan Lefebvre, who passed for more than 300 yards in his first U SPORTS start.
Lefebvre's favourite target Kaseem Ferdinand became just the second Raven to record three 100-yard receiving games when he hauled in 12 catches Saturday. The record ties him with Ottawa Redblacks slotback Nate Behar.
Led by Athlete of the Week Brianna Messer, the Carleton Ravens welcome an upstart McGill Martlets team to TAAG Park on Sunday at 1:00 PM. The Marlets will be looking to build on their opening week win, while the young Ravens team will see if they can't continue their winning ways. Dating back to 2022, the Ravens have won four straight since their loss in the RSEQ semi-finals.
The back-to-back RSEQ bronze medalist Ravens have all eyes on improving on the past two seasons and challenging for a spot at U SPORTS nationals.
