September 6, 2014. Justin Chiu Stadium, Trent University
The Trent men fought hard today but the Carleton Ravens managed to pull ahead 8-6 with less than a minute left in regulation as they narrowly defeated the Excalibur in their Home-Opener on Saturday, September 6th. Cam Breen and Aaron Woods notched the final two Raven goals in the winning effort as the Excalibur Men fell to 0-1 on the season.
The stands at Justin Chiu Stadium were filled with excited fans for Trent’s Home Opener this season. The game was fast-paced right off the opening face-off with both teams claiming the lead at different points in the game. #4 Josh Gilray was one of the top performers of the game for the Excalibur with two goals in the losing effort. Trent was able to even things up at 6 late in the fourth quarter but Carleton quickly answered back with two goals of their own to seal the deal for the Ravens.
Trent coach Geoff McKinley said “We just weren’t able to execute on offense today. Our defense was great but we weren’t able to capitalize on some of our scoring chances and it ended up costing us in the end”
