Keldyn Ahlstedt (Whitby, Ont.) was ever-present on Saturday in McMaster's 66-3 victory over the Waterloo Warriors.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Tunde Adeleke, Carleton Ravens, Returner

Tunde Adeleke (Ottawa) tied a CIS special teams’ record in the second quarter of the 45th Panda Game between the Carleton Ravens and Ottawa Gee-Gees on Saturday afternoon.
