The Carleton Ravens women’s hockey team put on pink jerseys and socks in support of women’s’ cancers in the Ottawa area. The effort was part of the Ravens pink weekend. The team certainly “pinked the rink”. The team and their fans helped raised money for this important cause.

On the ice, Carleton took on the Université de Montreal. The Carabins defeated Carleton 6-0.

The Carabins got lucky at the start of the game and scored two quick goals making it 2-0 early in the first period. Tawnya Guindon had Carleton’s best chance in the first frame but couldn’t pull the trigger. Ravens goalie Tamber Tisdale was kept busy between the pipes as Montreal outshot Carleton 15-6 in the first 20.

5 minutes into the second period, after a scramble in front of the net, the Carabins scored their third goal of the game. The Carabins would score two more times before the period ended making it 5-0 after 40 minutes. Carleton’s Sidney Weiss had a good shot on net in the second stopped by the Carabins netminder.

In the third period, the Carabins added another skating to a 6-0 final. Carleton’s record is now 1-1 in regular season play. The Ravens next game is on October 31 at 7:00pm in Montreal in the second half of a home & home pair versus the Carabins.
