The 54th Panda Game headlines a full weekend of Carleton Ravens action! The weekend kicks and tips off on Friday night with men's soccer and basketball and continues throughout the weekend leading into Sunday's big game at TD Place.
Riding a seven-game winning streak, the Ravens men's soccer team host the RMC Paladins on Friday night. The Ravens look to prove that a rare 6:00 PM start isn't enough to throw them off when the meet the 0-6 Paladins. The Ravens scored a pair of big wins on the road last weekend including a dominant 2-0 victory over the Nipissing Lakers while the Paladins come in rest, having only played once last weekend. With ten points (six goals and four assists) Luca Piccioli continues to be among the OUA's scoring leaders, as the Ravens look to host a Paladins team who have only scored two goals while conceding 22 times.
The two teams will meet again Sunday afternoon at the Navy Yards in Kingston.
After a devastating draw in the final minutes on Sunday at Nipissing, the Carleton Ravens will look to bounce back on Saturday afternoon when they host RMC's women's team. The 3-1-2 Ravens sit three points behind Nipissing (4-1-2) for second place and look to exercise their game in hand to close the gap. Ravens keeper Chloe Lachance-Soulard enters the weekend fourth in the OUA with 35 saves.
The Ravens will have the rest of the weekend off as other teams around the OUA catch up on the Ravens' heavy early season schedule.
A sell-out crowd will gather at TD Place on Sunday afternoon for the 54th Panda Game with both teams looking to gain key ground in the OUA playoff face. Tied in the standings at 2-2, the Ravens and Gee-Gees are looking to claim more than Pedro with time ticking down on the OUA regular season. Limited seats are still available for Sunday's game, but are going fast.
Whether you're enjoying the game from TD Place or at home on OUA TV, CBC Sports, Rogers 22 or Rogers 23, Carleton University takes pride in our connection to the community, and we are committed to ensuring a safe and respectful Panda game.
After the game, fans from both schools are invited to celebrate together at the first Panda Fest in person at 90U on the University of Ottawa campus.
