Ravens lose 1st home football game, score touchdown
Carleton University falls 47-8 to Waterloo Warriors in second game back from 15-year hiatus
Kyle Van Wynsberghe scored the first touchdown for the reborn Ravens on Saturday, but it wasn't nearly enough as Carleton lost its first Canadian university football home game in 15 years, 47-8 to the Waterloo Warriors.
Carleton has resurrected its football program this season after pulling the plug on the team after the 1998 season.
Trailing 24-0 in the third quarter, Van Wynsberghe caught a 22-yard pass from Jesse Mills to cut the Waterloo lead.
