The University of Ottawa men’s hockey team took on cross-town rivals the Carleton Ravens on Oct. 12. The game was the season opener for both teams, and the Gees would face a tough test in a hostile building with the matchup being the Ravens’ home opener.
Though the Gees lost in heartbreaking fashion, they can rest in the knowledge that they played hard in a gutsy game, and almost came out on top.
A Carleton and University of Ottawa matchup is always an exciting event to mark your calendars with, and this edition of the epic rivalry promises to be no different.
Despite the loss of super-stars Wendel and Baines, the future still looks bright for the Gees going forward, with a big recruiting class this year.
As a result of this loss, the Gees’ record is now 14–8–4 and they sit in sixth place in the Ontario University Athletics East Division.
Both the men’s and women’s teams were looking to avenge losses to Carleton earlier this season, but unfortunately retribution would have to wait.
The Gees only have four games remaining before the playoffs, and while they are holding on to second place in the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ), they’re not guaranteed anything yet.
Both teams have one more weekend before their much-anticipated Capital Hoops matchup, and a chance to avenge their losses to Carleton.
The Gees looked out of sorts all game, and a major blowout was the end result. When the last buzzer mercifully sounded the final score read an embarrassing 80–41.
