MONTREAL, Que.- The Carleton Ravens women’s hockey team fell to the Concordia University Stingers 5-1 on Friday Feb. 14. It was the Ravens second last game of the season and last road game of the season.
The Ravens fell into an early hole as Stingers forward Rosalie Begin-Cyr opened the scoring just over five minutes into the first period. The home side added to their lead with a power play goal by forward Claudia Dubois late in the period. Dubois had a game-high three points (one goal, two assists).
Concordia added to their lead with a goal by Olivia Atkinson as Ravens goalie Alexandra Lehmann turned aside 13 out of 14 shots in the second period. However, Carleton was unable to find the back of the net with seven shots in the period.
The lead grew to 4-0 as Stingers defenceman Stephanie Lemelin scored just over three minutes into the third period. However, a couple of penalties gave Carleton an opportunity to get on the scoreboard. The Ravens took advantage of that with a power play marker by Carly Wouters just under six minutes into the third.
Concordia would continue to outshoot the Ravens by a margin of 18-9 in the third (and 40-27 overall in the game) and would add another power play goal late in the game.
The Ravens losing streak continued as the team has not won since a 1-0 overtime home victory over the Montreal Carabins on Jan. 18.
Carleton will take on the University of Ottawa at the Ice House on Feb. 16. It marks the last game of the 2019-20 season for the team and the last Carleton game for the graduating seniors.
