Queens soccer beat Kodiaks to advance to gold medal match

Queens will play on Sunday

The Red Deer Polytechnic Queens’ soccer team are off to the gold medal game at the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Championships after defeating the Lethbridge Kodiaks 2-1 Saturday morning in Raymond.

The Queens scored both of their goals in the first half by captain Alisha Coules and rookie sensation Sein Furuyama. The Kodiaks made a push in the second half and scored at the 62-minute mark but it wasn’t enough to take down Red Deer.

The match to determine this year’s ACAC Champion will take place on Sunday at 3 p.m. in Raymond. They will play the winner of the other semi-final matchup between NAIT and Concordia University.

To get to this point the Queens finished first in the south division, which earned them a bye to the semi-final on Saturday where they defeated Lethbridge.
