Bennett (Mississauga, ON), a running back, had an outstanding Week 1 performance against Queen’s on Sunday afternoon.

Bennett contributed 140 yards on the ground on just 15 carries for 9.3 average yards per carry. The 5’8 speedster also had 7 receptions from the backfield for 43 yards, causing headaches for the Gaels’ defence.

He amassed 192 all-purpose yards against Queen’s, which was good enough for the third most in the OUA after Week 1.

Bennett is in his 3rd year at Carleton studying Psychology.

Veronica Mazzella (Ottawa, ON) was instrumental in her team’s victory over the Queen’s Gaels on Sunday afternoon at MNP Park.

While Carleton’s co-captain did not get on the score sheet, she did provide consummate leadership on the field with exemplary service on both ends of the pitch.

She helped the Ravens overcome a 2-1 halftime deficit to prevail 3-2 over the Gaels. The 5th-year midfielder showed true grit and was a major catalyst in her side’s first win of the season.

Veronica studies in the Integrated Science program.
