OTTAWA, Ontario – In their first game back at the Ice House after Christmas break, the Carleton Ravens women’s hockey team was defeated 5-0 by the McGill University Martlets on Jan. 11.
“It was an important game for us, for our season, and we just didn’t show up. We didn’t work hard, and unfortunately we didn’t come out to play today,” Ravens assistant coach, Tawnya Guindon, said.
The game would see goals from Kellyane Lecours, Marika Labrecque, Mackenzie McCallum, Jade Downie-Landry, and Lea Dumais.
Once again, the Ravens working power play would be an issue for the team as they couldn’t find the back of the net on any of their man advantages.
“We had a few chances early in the game to go up one or two goals on the powerplay, and it just wasn’t connecting, and unfortunately, they connected on theirs,” Guindon said.
“So, it wasn’t good enough and we’re going to get back to work on Monday,” she added.
The Ravens will seek out their second win of 2020 as the second place Montreal Carabins pay a visit to the Ice House on Jan. 18.
“Scoring goals is important. Breakouts, in general. Skating, and staying in shape for those important games, those playoff games, and pushing the pace in practice,” Ravens forward Leah Scott said about getting ready for Saturday.
