After a big home win against Windsor last weekend, the Ravens came up short today losing 37-15, eliminating them from a potential playoff run in their second season back in CIS Football.

While disappointed with the loss, Ravens 2nd year receiver, Kyle Van Wynsberghe, said “there were positives to the season like winning the Panda game against the University of Ottawa.
“I love being out here with my friends, my brothers, there’s nothing better,” he said that despite the loss, the team greatly improved over last year.
The Ravens finished the season with four wins and four losses.
