Kings 2 Thunder 1
The RDC Kings are moving on at the Alberta College Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Championships.
RDC knocked off the Concordia University of Edmonton Thunder in a 2-1 thriller to advance at the tournament in Edmonton.
It was a surge in the early going that powered the Kings to victory, with Pedro Humberto Mourao Neto scoring just three minutes into the game and Lacombe’s Nathan Swartz added another in the ninth minute. From there the Kings were able to hold on, only allowing a Thunder goal early in the second half.
RDC will be in tough Saturday, squaring off against the SAIT Trojans with a trip to the ACAC final on the line. SAIT was 10-1-1 on the year and won their last six games heading into the playoffs. The Trojans beat RDC in both matchups in the regular season.
