OSHAWA, Ontario – A two goal second half from the Ravens men’s soccer team extended their winning ways as they downed the UOIT Ridgebacks 3-1 on the road. The Ravens maintain their hot streak to start 2018 with their third win in a row.
The scorching Ravens offense has seen a rotating cast of contributors in their three wins. On this afternoon it was Jimi Aribido (Port Harcourt, Nigeria) with 2 goals, the first and last of the game. Gabriel Bitar (Ottawa, ON) extended his goal streak to 3 consecutive games. Dario Conte (Ottawa, ON) pitched in with an assist of his own on Aribido’s first goal.
The win puts the Ravens at the top of the OUA East standings, but they have some company. Ryerson and Toronto are also undefeated with 3 wins and 9 points apiece. They are the only two teams who have scored more goals than the Ravens in the first 3 games of 2018 (Ryerson 16, Toronto 11, Carleton 7).
The Ravens will look for another consistent effort with another road match tomorrow afternoon against the Trent Excalibur.
RAVENS PLAYER OF THE GAME:
#14 Jimi Aribido – Forward – 2nd year – Port Harcourt, Nigeria
Carleton vs Trent
Sunday, September 2 – 3:15pm
