Gaels dominated in national capital


The football team suffered a rough defeat in their first road game of the season. 

The Gaels were bested 41-17 by the Ottawa Gee-Gees this past Sunday. Queen’s opened up with an early 3-0 lead from a field goal by kicker Dillon Wamsley.

However, the Gaels were unable to contain the Gee-Gees’ offence in the second quarter, which scored 34 points within the frame. Jesse Andrews led the Gaels offence with 15 rushes for 112 yards. 

Quarterback Nate Hobbs threw for 149 yards on 11 completions and a touchdown, while running in for a nine yard score himself. Linebacker Nelkas Kwemo had 12.5 tackles, including 12 solo tackles, which was one off of a school record.
