Gaels win both soccer season openers
Looking like she’d never been away, Jackie Tessier scored three goals in the first half to lead the Queen’s Golden Gaels to a 6-0 win over the Royal Military College Paladins Sunday night in the opening game of the Ontario University Athletics women’s soccer season for both teams.
Tessier, a three-time all-Canadian who did not play for the Gaels last year, needed just four minutes to score the first goal of her return. She scored again six minutes later and again in the game’s 39th minute.
Playing at RMC, the Gaels took a staggering 38 shots on beseiged RMC goalkeeper Alexandra Hogg, last year’s conference rookie of the year. Madison Tyrell made nine saves for the shutout in the Queen’s goal.
Tara Bartram, with two, and Regiopolis Notre Dame grad Brittany Almeida scored the other goals for Queen’s, which will host Laurentian in its home opener Saturday at noon on Miklas-McCarney Field.
In the men’s game Sunday, rookie striker Jacob Schroeter scored twice as Queen’s blanked RMC 5-0. Tommy Hong opened scoring in the game’s 11th minute and the score stayed that way until the game’s 64th minute. The Gaels, who scored on every shot they put on net in the second half, scored four times in the final 26 minutes of the game.
Tonko Bacelic also scored twice for the Gaels in the opening game of the season for both teams. His goals came 45 seconds apart late in the second half. Queen’s goalkeeper Taylor Reynolds, a Kingston Collegiate grad, had to make just two saves to post the shutout.

II Year Earns TKD Silver at Costa Rica Open
26995 NCdt Ann Lee travelled to Costa Rica this past weekend to compete in the Costa Rica Open. The Costa Rica Open is a G-2 ranking international tournament by the world Taekwondo federation. Medalling at one of these tournaments would give Ann both international and national ranking points.
Even though this was NCdt Lee’s first international tournament experience, after a bronze medal performance at the 2014 Canadian national championships in May, she showed very little nerves and put on the performance of her athletic career. Ann took the silver medal, losing by only 0.18 points to a member of the Costa Rican national team.
Joel Ridley highly respected RMCC TKD coach at the local, national and international accompanied the RMCC competitor to the championship.
This silver medal performance has Ann now ranked second in Canada and she could potentially be selected as the alternate for the upcoming world championships.
NCdt Lee and Joel would both especially like to thank Darren Cates, Director of Athletics, and the RMC Foundation for all their unwavering support.
