Carleton Ravens women's ice hockey
The Carleton Ravens are a women's ice hockey team based out of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The Carleton Ravens are the varsity women's ice hockey team of Carleton University, and are members of the Quebec Student Sports Federation (RSEQ), and compete for the Canadian Interuniversity Sport women's ice hockey championship. Home games are played at the Ice House.
In a January 22, 2012 game against the number one ranked McGill Martlets, the Ravens defeated McGill for the first time in program history. The final score was a 4-3 mark in a shootout for the upset. Prior to the loss, the Martlets had won 116 of their last 117 regular season games.
Less than two minutes into the first period, Ravens skater Erin Beaver logged the first goal of the contest. Martlets skater Kim Ton-That tied the game but Carleton’s leading goal scorer, Claudia Bergeron restored the lead for the Ravens as she scored on Charline Labonte. In the second period, the Ravens were outshot 13-6, as Stacie Tardif tied the match at two goals apiece. She would also score in the third period to give the Martlets their first lead of the game.
On the power play, team captain Sara Seiler beat Labonte with a wrist shot to tie the game. Ravens goaltender Tamber Tisdale stopped 32 of 35 shots, as the clubs would have to go to a shootout. Ravens skaters Melanie McKnight and Sydnie MacDonald both scored in the shootout to give the Ravens their historic victory.
On February 4, 2012, the Ravens honoured the memory of the late Daron Richardson, daughter of Ottawa Senators assistant coach, Luke Richardson. The club held a charity drive for the Daron Richardson Fund (known as Do It For Daron), a program focused on raising awareness about youth mental health. Bruce MacDonald, Daron’s former coach and the father of Ravens player Kristen MacDonald participated in the ceremonial face off.
