Ravens 1 GeeGees 5
On Sunday afternoon the Ravens women’s hockey team were dealt their first loss of the season by their cross-town rivals, the University of Ottawa GeeGee’s.
Fans filled the Ice House for Pink in the Rink, an event organized by Carleton’s Varsity Council to support breast cancer awareness month. The Ravens wore pink jersey’s and fans participated in a raffle and chuck a puck event to raise funds for breast cancer research.
The GeeGee’s came out of the gate quickly, with Asha Kauffeldt grabbing the first goal of the game only 40 seconds in. Alex Lafleur, Cindy Laurin (2) and Camille Pauck-Therrien continued the firing squad to put the GeeGee’s up 5-0 over the Ravens going into the 1st intermission.
Despite the Ravens stepping up the pressure in the second period, they remained without a goal at the end of 40 minutes.
Sadie Wegner scored a power-play goal 1:12 into the third period, ending the GeeGee’s bid for a shutout. The Ravens were unable to make up the difference in score and the GeeGee’s came out on top in the first cross-town rivalry hockey game of the season.
Goaltender Eri Kiribuchi made 47 saves for the Ravens.
The Ravens next play at McGill on Friday October 25th. The puck drops at 7pm.
