Women’s soccer puts up eight-spot on RMC

The Queen’s Gaels (6-1-3) kept a clean sheet against the RMC Paladins (2-7-1) on Wednesday for their second straight 8-0 win.

A number of Gaels contributed to the victory. Breanna Burton, Riley Filion and Monique Czaczkowski each had a pair of tallies in the game, while Rachel Radu and Brittany Almeida both added a goal.

Wednesday saw the return of the previously injured Almeida. The Gaels benefited from having key players recovered and back on the field.

The win brought the Gaels to third place in the OUA East Division, one point back of the second-place Toronto Varsity Blues.

“It was a good offensive dynamic performance … we spent a lot of time training how to be successful in those back portions of the field, the defensive third and the midfield, and I think you’re seeing some of that coming through,” said head coach Dave McDowell.

Next up for the Gaels is a Homecoming game against the Ottawa Gee-Gees (8-0-2) at noon on Saturday. The game will be at West Campus Field.
