The weekend is not just the Pink Game for Ravens football, it is also their senior game where 11 players will be honoured before kick-off. The game on the field is just as crucial with critical playoff positioning on the line. With a win, the Ravens will clinch sixth in the OUA and set themselves up for a matchup against third-place Windsor. A loss and the Ravens head to face the loser of this week's matchup between the last two undefeated teams in the OUA, Western and Wilfrid Laurier.
After a split on the road last weekend in Kingston the Ravens men's hockey team returns home to face Waterloo and Laurier this weekend. Brogan O'Brien is currently tied for fifth in OUA scoring with Waterloo's Max Neill. The two forwards, who are one point behind RMC's Chris Paquette for third, will face off Friday at 7 p.m. as the Ravens look to close the gap on Concordia and RMC who sit 4 points ahead in the standings.
On Saturday, the 1-3 Golden Hawks will visit Carleton for the first time since October 20, 2018, a 6-5 win for Carleton. O'Brien was a big factor in that game five years ago scoring a goal and an assist, including helping to set up Evan de Haan for the game-winner.
For the second straight weekend, Ravens women's hockey play just once as they head on the road for the only time in October. The Ravens have a short trip Saturday down the Canal as they face the uOttawa Gee-Gees at the Minto Sports Complex.
Carleton enters the game having scored four times in their home opener while the Gee-Gees are also looking to bounce back after starting their season with a 4-1 loss to Montreal.
After clinching playoff spots at home last weekend the Ravens soccer teams head on the road this weekend with key fixtures at Trent and Ontario Tech.
On the women's side, Carleton is looking to host a playoff game for the second consecutive season a feat they haven't achieved in over a decade. Currently, the Ravens sit one point ahead of Toronto and two ahead of Ontario Tech with a game in hand on each team ahead of the final weekend of the season.
On the men's side, the Ravens look to tune up ahead of an OUA playoff matchup at TAAG Park next Saturday.
Ravens players Luca Piccioli (12) and Raphael Garcia (11) are quickly closing in on the league lead in points, both sitting just behind Pablo Helmpelmann-Perez of Queen's who has 15 points.
Ravens women's basketball will play a pair of exhibition games at home this weekend as Saint Mary's and Laurentian visit. These games are not-tickets and fans are free to attend.
Men's basketball are on the road for some preseason scrimmages in Massachusets with NCAA competition.
Both teams start the regular season on the road before opening up at home on November 17 and 18 for their home opener weekend sponsored by McKeen Metro Glebe.
Closing in on the OUA Championships, the rowing team head to Boston for the Head of the Charles. After collecting five medals at the Brock Invitational two crews will be back in action at the largest regatta in North America. Both the men's and women's fours are returning to the prestigious event after qualifying last season - the women in sixth and the men in the top half.
