Male Athlete of the Week – Dario Conte, Carleton Ravens, Soccer
Carleton welcomed a pair of northern schools to the nation’s capital this weekend, and backed by a strong offensive showing from Dario Conte, the Ravens managed to defend their home turf in back-to-back wins.
Conte first got on the scoresheet in Carleton’s tilt with Nipissing, opening the scoring with what proved to be the game-winning tally. The talented midfielder connected on an unassisted goal in just the 14th minute, which proved to be the difference in the match that the home side ultimately took 3-0.
The following day, it was Laurentian’s turn to battle the nationally-ranked Ravens, but the offensive presence of the country’s No. 3 team was once again too much to handle. And while it was Conte that opened the scoring the day prior, the third-year standout buried the final goal this time around, offering up an insurance marker in the 73rd minute in the Raven’s eventual 4-1 win.
The goals were the first of the season for Conte, who is now just one off his total from all of 2018.
