Queen’s sweeps RMC on final weekend of soccer season

October 20, 2014

Queen’s Golden Gaels came out of their offensive doldrums Sunday afternoon, scoring six times in a 6-3 win over the Royal Military College Paladins in the final game of their Ontario University Athletics women’s soccer schedule at Miklas-McCarney Field.

The Gaels, who had scored just once in losing their previous two games, began the game with a flourish, outshooting the visitors 18-2 in the first half. It was a season best for goals in a game, and it was accomplished without any goals from either of the team’s leading scorers, Jackie Tessier, who did not play, or Jessie de Boer.

Queen’s opened scoring in the game’s 20th minute and led 4-0 at halftime, with goals coming from Tara Bartram, Laura Callendar, Melissa Jung and Regiopolis Notre Dame grad Brittany Almeida.

Bartram and Callendar each scored her second goal of the game in the second half as Queen’s went ahead 6-0 before Brooke Blogg sored three straight goals for RMC.

For Blogg, who scored her first goal of the season Wednesday, it was a four-goal week. She finished the season with almost half of her team’s nine goals, as the Paladins finished 0-15-1.

With a 9-4-3 record, Queen’s placed fourth in the East division and will host Carleton in a quarter-final game Wednesday. The Ravens finished the year 7-5-4, but won just twice since Sept. 24.

Carleton and Queen’s battled to a 1-1 tie in their only meeting of the season, Oct. 1 in Ottawa.

Queen’s men, meanwhile, thoroughly dominated RMC in their regular-season finale, posting a 5-0 victory.

Chris Wellsman, with a pair of second-half goals, Tommy Hong, Marco D’Elia and Rohan Sarna, the latter two on first-half penalty kicks, scored for Queen’s. Queen’s outshot RMC 19-3, and Dan Van Woerkens collected the goaltending win.

As they closed the season with an eight-game unbeaten streak, the Gaels finished third in the East division at 9-2-5. RMC was 3-13.

Queen’s will host sixth-place Nipissing, 4-7-5, in a quarter-final game. During the regular year, the Gaels beat the Lakers 2-0 in Kingston and they gained a 1-1 tie in North Bay.
