Thunder 2 Kings 0

EDMONTON — The RDC King’s magical soccer season has come to an end after the first round of the ACAC playoffs, losing 2-0 to the Concordia Thunder on Friday.

The Kings held the Thunder off the score board through the first half, but the dam finally broke early in the second half when Concordia scored twice in a five-minute period.

“We didn’t do enough to cause them any real problems,” said Kings head coach Steve Fullarton. “We put up a good show against one of the top teams in the country. The guys did well but we needed to create more offensively.”

Queens eliminated

Griffins 3 Queens 0

CALGARY — The RDC Queens ran out of steam in the first round of the ACAC soccer playoffs, as they were shut out 3-0 by a hot Grant MacEwan University Griffins team.

Injuries took a tole on the Queens this year and hit them again Friday night as they lost their last striker — Kassie Prtichard — to a torn ACL just before half. It was the second time in three years she has tore the same ACL.

The Griffins lead at the half 1-0 and then scored 10 minutes into the second. With the Queens pushing late the Griffins scored once more to put the game out of reach.

“It was a promising start to the season but the injuries hurt,” said Queens head coach Jerry Gerling. “I’m disappointed in the result, but not in the way the girls, they tried right up to the finals whistle.”

l RDC keeper Brittany Baker was also named to the ACAC South Division All-Conference team along with midfielder Samantha Martin and defender Samantha Vockeroth.
