Gaels win both soccer season openers

September 1, 2014

Looking like she’d never been away, Jackie Tessier scored three goals in the first half to lead the Queen’s Golden Gaels to a 6-0 win over the Royal Military College Paladins Sunday night in the opening game of the Ontario University Athletics women’s soccer season for both teams.

Tessier, a three-time all-Canadian who did not play for the Gaels last year, needed just four minutes to score the first goal of her return. She scored again six minutes later and again in the game’s 39th minute.

Playing at RMC, the Gaels took a staggering 38 shots on beseiged RMC goalkeeper Alexandra Hogg, last year’s conference rookie of the year. Madison Tyrell made nine saves for the shutout in the Queen’s goal.

Tara Bartram, with two, and Regiopolis Notre Dame grad Brittany Almeida scored the other goals for Queen’s, which will host Laurentian in its home opener Saturday at noon on Miklas-McCarney Field.

  • In the men’s game Sunday, rookie striker Jacob Schroeter scored twice as Queen’s blanked RMC 5-0. Tommy Hong opened scoring in the game’s 11th minute and the score stayed that way until the game’s 64th minute. The Gaels, who scored on every shot they put on net in the second half, scored four times in the final 26 minutes of the game.

Tonko Bacelic also scored twice for the Gaels in the opening game of the season for both teams. His goals came 45 seconds apart late in the second half. Queen’s goalkeeper Taylor Reynolds, a Kingston Collegiate grad, had to make just two saves to post the shutout.

The Gaels resume play Wednesday afternoon when they will host the Carleton Ravens at 2 o’clock at Miklas-McCarney Field.
