Kings fall at CCAA men’s soccer nationals

Will play in the bronze semifinal Friday

The RDC Kings ran out of magic Thursday at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association Men’s Soccer National Championships.

In the national semifinal, the Kings fell 2-0 to the host Durham College Lords on a cold and snowy day in Oshawa.

Durham pressured the Kings from the outset, eventually finding the mark on a free kick just before halftime.

Out of the half, Joshua Lee buried in the 48th minute to power the Lords to the win.

RDC will now square off with Saint-Lambert Cavaliers in the bronze semifinal Friday at 10:30 a.m. The winner advances to the bronze medal game, while the loser heads to a placement match.
