Women’s soccer rebounds with big win

The women’s soccer team responded to their slip-up against the Toronto Varsity Blues on Sunday by beating the Royal Military College Paladins 5-0 on Thursday.

Striker Breanna Burton led the team with two goals while Kelli Chamberlain, Jackie Tessier and Alexis McKinty each added singles. The win takes the Gaels to 7-0-1 and keeps them at the top of the OUA East division.

“It was a pretty good result. It’s a place where we’ve traditionally struggled to play,” head coach Dave McDowell said.

The Gaels will play the Carleton Ravens at Richardson Stadium on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Men’s soccer breezes past RMC

The men’s soccer team ended a three-game winless streak with a 2-0 win over the Royal Military College Paladins on Thursday. Striker Mac Ojiaku scored in the 31st minute and midfielder Eric Cappon added another goal minutes later to give the Gaels a halftime lead over their cross-town rivals. “It’s really big for us to get back on track,” Cappon said. “When we’re going through a tough spell like we have been, this is a good way to get back.” With the win, the Gaels improve to 4-2-1 and move into a tie for third in the OUA East division. They’ll host the Carleton Ravens Sunday at Richardson Stadium.
