Soccer splits home openers

Gaels soccer won and lost Wednesday night at a West Campus doubleheader against the Carleton Ravens.

The women’s team remained unbeaten on the season after topping the Ravens 1-0. Ranked second in the nation, they opened their season last Saturday with a 1-0 road win over the RMC Paladins.

Rookie striker Tara Bartram has scored both of Queen’s goals on the year, netting in the 75th minute against Carleton to secure their second consecutive shutout.

The Gaels are vying for pole position in the OUA East with the Ottawa Gee-Gees (3-0), who they’ll face on the road tomorrow.

After streaking past Carleton for the 2012 division championship, Queen’s men struggled in this year’s season opener, dropping a 2-0 decision to the Ravens.

The game was their first since the Old Four tournament in late August. The Gaels won the exhibition championship in London with wins over the McGill Redmen and Western Mustangs.
