QUEEN'S 0, McMASTER 3
GAELS FALL IN BRONZE MEDAL GAME BRINGING AN END TO THEIR YEAR
Queen's Sports Information
The Queen's women's soccer team (8-3-5, 1-2) fell 3-0 in the OUA Bronze Medal game to the McMaster Marauders (8-3-5, 3-1). Sunday's loss eliminated the Gaels from U SPORTS National Championship contention and brought their season to an end.
On a wide pitch, the Marauders were able to control the pace of play in the opening 45 minutes. They outshot the Gaels 6-3 in the first half but the first chance of the game went to Queen's.
In the 22nd minute, Jenny Wolever had a chance on goal however Marauders' goalkeeper Juliana Hifawi was able to make the save.
As the half was nearing its end, the Marauders capitalized for the first goal of the game.
OUA goal-scoring leader Stephanie Roberts sent a shot on net, which deflected off the cross bar and just past the goal line. There was an initial confusion from both sides as to whether the goal had actually crossed the goal line, however the head official made the call and McMaster took a 1-0 lead.
McMaster carried that momentum into the second half as they had the first two shots on net. Then in the 51st minute, Stephanie Roberts tapped in an open goal to give the Marauders a 2-0 lead.
The Gaels next opportunity came in the 70th minute as Kelsie McGinn, who scored in the semifinal match against Western, sent a shot high above the net.
In the 82nd minute, Ally Riganelli scored a header to bring the Marauders lead to 3-0 effectively putting the game out of reach.
BY THE NUMBERS
7 – Anna Stephenson made seven saves as she was often challenged in net
4 – Just four shots created by the Gaels three key forwards (Jenny Wolever, Alexandra Doane and Sarah Nixon)
SEASON IN REVIEW
The Gaels season comes to an end in a disappointing way after being so close to locking up a U SPORTS berth.
However, the Gaels played a strong regular season securing the second seed in the OUA East and brought home multiple All-Star nods as well as the OUA MVP in Jenny Wolever.
