The final championship of the OUA's fall season headlines what is otherwise a weekend on the road for the Ravens.
Finalists in nine of the last ten seasons, Carleton will have their work cut out for them if they want to make it back to the OUA final. Following a 3-6 regular season, the Carleton Ravens have something to prove when they open the tournament Friday afternoon against McMaster at the Nepean Sportsplex. The Ravens and Mac split a pair of close matchups ahead of the tournament, Carleton won the first match 13-10 and Mac came out 11-8 in their most recent matchup.
A win on Friday afternoon would bring Carleton home to the Carleton Pool inside Alumni Hall to face their rivals from Toronto.
It's another weekend on the road for the men's and women's hockey teams with a pair of road trips to wrap up November.
The women's team will continue a month-long road trip when they face McGill and Bishop's. After a pair of losses last weekend, the women's hockey team will look to bounce back in the tight RSEQ standings when they make their first trip to McConnell Arena on Friday night. The 2-8 Martlets and 2-7 tied with four points just five back of the Gee-Gees for the fourth and final playoff spot.
On the men's end, Carleton heads back to the GTA after facing TMU and Nipissing last weekend. The Ravens will take on the always-physical Ontario Tech Ridgebacks on Friday night before heading into Toronto on Saturday to face the 3-10 York Lions on Saturday. The Ridgebacks sit tied with Carleton with nearly identical records and 15 points. Despite their inconsistent starts, both teams remain just five points back of first in the packed OUA standings.
Following a successful Opening Weekend presented by McKeen Metro Glebe the Carleton Ravens basketball teams are back on the road this weekend for their third road weekend of the month. At 5-0, the number one ranked women's team looks to keep pace with the 6-0 Queen's Gaels with a visit to Nipissing and Laurentian.
Moving back up the U SPORTS rankings to seventh, the Carleton Ravens men's basketball program improved to 3-2 last weekend and with a game in hand, could move back to third in the OUA East with wins in North Bay and Sudbury.
