OTTAWA - The Carleton Ravens men's hockey team took three of four points at home this weekend in a pair of games against the visiting Waterloo Warriors and Laurier Golden Hawks.
The Ravens started their weekend well on Friday night scoring a huge 6-2 win over the visiting Warriors. Things appeared to be starting poorly for Carleton as they fell behind early in the first, but Aaron Boyd made an instant impact in his game of the year scoring the tying goal less than four minutes later.
Tied at one in the second period Carleton fell behind again when Cole Fraser scored 3:29 in to retake the lead. Carleton would respond once again when Boyd scored his second off the game on a centring pass which deflected off Warrior goalie Dan Murphy's stick and into the net.
Boyd's goal turned the tied for Carleton as Reese Belton scored his first OUA goal just a minute later before Nick McCarry scored his first of two on the night to make it 3-1 in the first.
McCarry and Garrett Wright would each score in the second period as the Ravens took the win 6-2.
On Saturday night, the Ravens faced more visitors from Kitchener-Waterloo as Laurier rolled into the Ice House. Nick McCarry would score his third of the weekend to start things off as Carleton outshot Laurier 15-8 in the first while taking a 1-0 lead.
Carleton's lead would extend into the third before Laurier would get one past Ravens rookie goaltender Tye Austin. Belton would respond for the Ravens, retaking the lead just three minutes later, but Bryce Sutherland would score only a minute later to tie the game back up for the Golden Hawks.
The two teams traded chances the rest of the way, including exchanging shots throughout overtime, but neither team could pull ahead forcing a shootout. After Sam Rhodes scored first to start the shootout, the Ravens went 0-3 dropping the fourth and final point of the weekend to the visitors.
Carleton heads out on the road this weekend with a trip to Southern Ontario to visit Western on Friday night and Windsor on Saturday afternoon.
The Ravens will return home on November 4 when they host Ottawa on the second night of a home-and-home against the Gee-Gees.
