Women’s Soccer:

Congratulations to the ladies and coach Chad Beaulieu for earning a berth in the OUA play-offs. The team has showed steady improvement during the current season and proved that they can compete with the majority of the other universities in the league.

This past Saturday RMC squandered an early 2-0 first half lead against a power-house team from U of T before falling 5-2. Amelie Clot scored her 3rd goal of the season to open up the scoring at the two minute mark. Melanie Ross added another one, three minutes later and things looked rosy for the local team. After that it was all U of T who were ahead by one at half time and they fired two more in the second half to salt away the victory.

The RMC ladies finished strong at home Sunday under baseball like weather conditions with a convincing 4-1 win over Ryerson. Melanie Ross with two goals led the offensive attack, her 4th & 5th markers of the season; Laura Gray fired home her second goal during league play while Massalie MacKenzie dashed any hopes of a Ryerson come back with her first goal of the year. Goalie Erica Pessotto played two strong games over the weekend.

The team finished the regular campaign with 3 wins, 9 losses and 4 ties good enough for the play-offs. This was a big improvement over their record from last season at 1-12-3.

RMC WOMEN’S SOCCER ON TO THE NEXT ROUND
Spirited Effort Propels Paladins Past Golden Gaels
October 24, 2007

KINGSTON, ON – RMC and Queen’s took to Richardson Stadium in OUA women’s soccer first round of playoffs. The Paladins were making their debut in OUA post-season play, and were lifted by a great number of fans en route to a 2-0 victory.

The win marked the first CIS playoff victory for any RMC team since the 2000-01 men’s hockey team won game 2 of their second round matchup against the University of Toronto on March 2, 2001.

RMC supporters erupted into cheers as the visitors got out in front just three minutes into the match. Amelie Clot served a corner into the Queen’s goal area where a mad scrabble ensued. Third-year Heather MacLellan eventually put the ball into the goal for an early 1-0 lead.

Four minutes later, Clot made another impact on the match. Off a Queen’s corner-kick, it seemed the Golden Gaels would level the match until Clot cleared the ball off the line as she guarded the front post. It was a moment that changed the match. “We knew we had to hold our lead for as long as we could,” notes Chad Beaulieu, Head Coach of the Paladins “Credit to our players knowing their assignments and executing them.”

At the start of the second half, Queen’s came out in a more attacking formation. RMC stayed organized defensively and capitalized on the counter attack to take a 2-0 lead in the 57th minute. Alexandre Brault won the ball in midfield and quickly got the ball into Laura Gray. The first-year striker then found Melanie Ross in the danger area. Ross took a touch into the penalty area before slotting home a firm strike past the Golden Gaels goalkeeper Hannah Soichet.

Queen’s was relentless in their attack and continued to try and find a way back into the match as RMC defended with real determination. The numerous Paladins supporters chanted and cheered on their team as the final minutes closed out a historic win for RMC women’s soccer. “We really appreciated the tremendous presence of our supporters. They helped team to a great win and gave them a great atmosphere to play in” added Beaulieu

RMC will now travel to Ottawa on Saturday, October 27 to take on the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees in OUA quarterfinal play.

Final match stats: Saves Pessotto 3, Shoichet 8: Total shots: RMC 10, Queen’s 3: Corners RMC 4, Queen’s 4: Offsides RMC 0, Queen’s 2

Men’s Soccer

The men’s team did not make the big leap of being competitive in OUA play this season. A record of two wins, nine losses and three ties had them buried in their division and not in contention for the play-offs. This followed a 0-11-3 record last season and a 2-5-3 mark in 2005.

The team did finish on a winning note during the last weekend of the regular season. After falling 2-0 to U of T on Saturday they came back strong against Ryerson the next day with a hard fought 2-1 victory. Trevor Guile led the way by scoring both goals in the second half after Ryerson had taken the 1 nil lead in the first half.

hockey_sticks.jpgHockey

The most impressive varsity story of the year – to date, is the outstanding performance by the hockey Paladins. This past weekend saw them split encounters by 3-2 scores losing to Guelph on Friday night but bouncing back 24 hours later with a clutch win against a Brock Badger team who sported a 5-0 won / loss record prior to their RMC match. Both contests were decided by shoot-outs. The weekend results have the team sitting a top their OUA Mid East Division with seven points. Impressive indeed!

In the tough shoot-out loss to Guelph, Luke Pierce scored both goals in regulation time and even added one in the shoot-out. Ian Miller and Paul Bradley were the set-up men for the two regulation goals. On Saturday Paul Bradley and Duaine Fetzner were the marksmen while Luke Pierce, Richard Lim, and Ian Miller all chipped in with assists. Adam Briggs was solid in goal once again, turning away 27 of the 29 shots fired at the RMC net.

The big test(s) awaits the team over the upcoming few weeks. All their games between now and the break are against teams within their division. Back to back weekends, first in Toronto and then back in Kingston against U of T and Ryerson will go a long way in determining if the team can remain in the lofty position they now hold.

Special thanks go to 2Lt Marilyne Lafortune, 2Lt Erin McEachern and 2Lt Sarah McRae.

The Men’s volleyball team played host to both Waterloo and WLU this past weekend in the opening matches of the regular season. Against Waterloo RMC were in all four games with respectable scores but lost the match 3 games to 1. The next day against WLU the scores were also pretty close but they lost all 3 games.
RMC is coming off a season where they had only 1 win and 19 losses; the two previous seasons they managed little better with two wins while losing 18 matches each year.

The women traveled to Lakehead and came close in their very first game of the season barely losing – 28 to 26 in a nail-biter. In their remaining five games, however, the best they could do is muster up 17 points in a game in losing both matches by 3-0 scores.
Since entering the OUA the women’s team has not managed to win a match. Hopefully this will be the break through year.

Men’s & Women’s Basketball will be starting up soon. The women take to the floor at Queen’s University – Friday 2 Nov at 6PM. The Men will start following “Kevin Dulude Night” – 9 Nov. 8PM.
Both teams are coming off horrendous seasons – the Men managed only one win last year while the Women did not win a game for the fourth OUA consecutive season. Hopes are high that both teams will enjoy some success in the winners circle this time around.
