Gee-Gees avenge November loss to the Ravens

When these two teams met back in November, Carleton mounted a fourth quarter offensive for a 60-55 upset win over Ottawa, and you can be sure both teams were drawing strength from that knowledge.

The Gee-Gees charged out the gate with a 9-0 run, including 7 points from Angela Tilk, before Abeer Farhat put the Ravens on the scoreboard. The Ravens would only manage on more field goal and a free throw, allowing the Gee-Gees to take a 17-6 lead into the second quarter.

Three early three-pointers by Carleton would help close the gap, giving them enough momentum to piece together an 8-0 run and take a 23-22 lead with 1:30 left in the half. Ottawa would break the run the last minute with a field goal and a pair of free throws to reclaim a 26-23 lead at the half.

The Gee-Gees would extend their lead to 11 in the third quarter, with 6 points from Julia Soriano and 5 points from Stephanie McDonald. Elizabeth Roach score 9 points to lead a late quarter surge by the Ravens, reducing the deficit to four points, but the Gee-Gees would maintain a 41-37 lead heading in to the final quarter.

Stephanie Carr would open fourth quarter scoring for the Ravens, cutting the deficit in half, but the Ravens would never get any closer. Angela Tilk would eventually help the Gee-Gees regain a 10 point lead with 4:34 left to play. Every basket scored by Carleton to reduce the lead would be answered by Ottawa, who would win the game 57-47.

Two Gee-Gees finished the game with a double-double, Tilk with 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Maddie Stephen with 10 points, 13 rebounds. Roach would also earn a double-double for the Ravens with 18 points and 12 rebounds, adding 5 assists and 3 steals.
