Brandon Forcier keyed the Carleton Ravens’ 31-30 come-from-behind victory over Waterloo last weekend.

He hit a 22-yarder with 5:16 left to make the score 30-27, tied the game with 43 seconds left on a 47-yard kick and kicked a 47-yard single on the final play of the game to give the Ravens the walk-off win and a berth in the OUA playoffs. Forcier ended the day with 13 points, as he made three of five field goal attempts and added three conversions to his game-winning rouge.
