OTTAWA - The Carleton Ravens have lost three straight following a 3-2 overtime loss to the RMC Paladins on Friday night.
The Ravens led 2-0 midway through the game before the Paladins climbed all the way back to force overtime and eventually steal the game's third point.
Carleton narrowly made it to overtime, after peppering the Paladins goaltender Joe Ingram-Chambers with 36 shots in the contest when two Paladins found themselves all alone in front in the dying seconds of the game. But not for a gorgeous diving save from Tye Austin the Ravens may not have even come away with the single point.
Carleton opened the scoring in the first when rookie Reese Belton scored his fifth goal of the season. Belton was positioned in front of the RMC goal when a rebound bounced off the pads of Ingram-Chambers and right onto his blade. The powerful righty made no mistake beating the visiting goaltender for the 1-0 lead.
Early in the second period, Nolan Seed would make a pass cross seem to Parker AuCoin who would wire one home to give the Ravens a 2-0 lead. The advantage was short-lived as Austin Saint scored seven minutes later and Josh Spratt would tie the game just 4:14 after that sending both teams into the third tied.
After a scoreless third, Austin Saint picked up a loose puck after a collision saw the last Raven go down in the neutral zone and race in on goal, beating Austin high over the shoulder for the game-winner.
The Ravens now sit 5-4-1 after having dropped their last three contests. They'll look to get back on the winning track Saturday night when they host Queen's for their Alumni Night Game. Fans are encouraged to arrive early as the Ravens will host a special Remembrance Day ceremony ahead of the broadcast.
