Ottawa 2, Carleton 1 Final
OTTAWA - The Carleton University Ravens women's soccer team dropped their last regular season home game to cross-town rivals the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees Wednesday night, falling 2-1.
The Gee-Gees had the first good scoring opportunity as Elizabeth Wong (Nepean, Ont.) broke in alone 10 minutes in. Keeper Rachel Bedek (St.Thomas, Ont.) came out to challenge her and made a big save. The play gave the Gee-Gees life though and they began to control the play. Wong continued to buzz around the Ravens goal and she would be rewarded for her effort as she opened the scoring for uOttawa in the 19th minute. The Gee-Gees continued to dominate possession in the half and held on to their one-goal lead after 45 minutes of play.
The Gee-Gees went up by two with an early second-half goal by Elise Desjardins (Cumberland, Ont.). The Ravens had a hard time getting anything going in the half with uOttawa controlling the play in central midfield. One of their best chances came off a header by Andrea Way (Navan, Ont.) but she couldn't find the back of the net.
The Gee-Gees almost went up 3-0 when Krista Draycott (Ottawa) found herself with some time and space and broke in alone. Ravens captain Kayla Wood (Bracebridge, Ont.) came back though and made a great defensive effort to negate any scoring chance.
With a minute left on the clock, Way had another chance to put the Ravens on the board. Her first shot was blocked but she made no mistake on the second attempt, spoiling Melissa Pesant's (Gatineau, Que.) shutout bid. The marker gave the Ravens some life but they couldn't get the tying goal as the Gee-Gees held on for the 2-1 victory.
The Ravens will wrap up their regular season on the road this weekend as they face the Ryerson University Rams on Oct. 23. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. The game will be key for Carleton as the Ravens battle for a top-four finish and home-field advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The Ravens currently sit in fourth place with a 7-5-3 record. The Laurentian Lady Vees are four points behind in fifth spot but have a game in hand.
