Andrew Latty takes the ball up the field

Thank you Joey Kewin!

The Ravens fifth year midfielder from London, Ontario was an offensive juggernaut on Wednesday evening as he provided half of Carleton’s offence in their 4-1 victory over the Queen’s Gaels.

Kewin scored in the 3rd minute to give the Ravens an early 1-0 lead then found the back of the net once again, roughly half an hour later to put Carleton up by a pair of goals, 2-0.

The ball seemed to be following Kewin for the entire contest as he potted his 8th and 9th goals of the season for Carleton.

“We (Carleton) got a great start against Queen’s and gained momentum from it,” said Kewin.

“Tonight’s win was a total team effort, we scored four times but we could have had more.”

The Ravens finally showed the offensive flair that had been missing during their last couple of games.

“We played well tonight, when we show up, we can play with anybody in this league,” said Ravens head coach, Sandy Mackie.

“Joey (Kewin) and Andrew (Latty) were solid along with Mintcho Mintchev. I’m very happy for Alex De Couvreur who scored his first goal of the year.”

Andrew Latty (67th) joined the scoring parade when he picked up his 8th goal of the season to give the Ravens a commanding 3-0 lead.

Queen’s cut into Carleton’s lead with a goal to make it 3-1 but Alexandre De Couvreur (Waterloo, ON) scored on a breakaway for Carleton in the 90th minute to seal the win.

The Ravens record improves to (8-2-2) and 26 points. Carleton occupy second place in the OUA East division.

Queen’s record slides to (5-3-2) and 4th place in the division.

Ryerson are at the top of the standings with a (9-0-1) record and 28 points.

Carleton and Ryerson will meet on Saturday, October 19. Game time at Ravens Field is 8:00PM.
