Less than three minutes in, U of O scores on a long breakaway, putting them up 1-0
Roxanne Rioux scored the opener
Carleton's first scoring opportunity is squandered, as they fail to capitalize on a giveway in U of O's defensive zone
Just over 10 minutes remaining in the first period, and the score is still 1-0 for U of Ottawa
Ravens goalie Katelyn Steele makes a nice stop on a 2-on-0 at about the 8:30 mark, stopping what could've made the score 2-0 early on

Thirty seconds later, another breakaway for U of O nets them their third goal. 3-0 U of O

Another Gee-Gees goal makes it 4-1 with 12:31 to go in the second
The crowd is now well over 50 people, and they were getting into it until the fourth U of O goal put a halt on the Ravens' momentum

The third period is starting, and Ravens head coach Pierre Alain appears to be replacing Steele with backup goalie Hailey Perrault for the final 20 minutes
