Laurier football weekly update

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Are you ready for some football Saturday night?

The bye week has come and gone and now we are fully immersed in Carleton Ravens preparations. This Orientation Week game is a 7:00pm kickoff and we would love to play in front of a packed stadium. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

Carleton is a very high-quality opponent and will be a stiff challenge for us. They are currently sitting at 1-1, with a win over Queen’s 22-17 in Week 1 and a loss to McMaster 23-9 this past weekend.

On offense, they are breaking in a new quarterback but he has some very talented weapons to utilize in receivers Dexter Brown and Kyle VanWynsberghe.

On the ground, they have a very big offensive line opening holes for dangerous running backs Jayde Rowe and Nathan Carter.

On defense, they would be characterized as fast. Veteran linebacker Leon Cenerini is always a handful and the Ravens’ top defender is defensive lineman Kene Onyeka (our very own Godfrey Onyeka’s brother). Kene has already tallied four sacks and numerous tackles on the year.

A full Carleton game recap will be provided in next week’s newsletter and also a look ahead to the following week’s game in Kingston against the Queen’s Gaels.

Here’s what is happening:
