Queens soccer kick off season in style with shutout over Rattlers

The RDC Queens started the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference season with a bang.

On the road in Medicine Hat, the Queens shutout the Rattlers 4-0 to open the year with a victory.

Second-year forward Alisha Coules did most of the damage for the Queens, notching a hat trick in the contest. The Stettler product had three goals all of last season through eight games.

Second-year Mikayla Fujimoto also added a tally in the 73rd minute and second-year keeper Alethea Riemer earned the shutout.

Sunday, the Queens struggled and fell 3-0 to the Lethbridge College Kodiaks.

Saturday, the RDC Kings played to a nil-nil draw with the Rattlers. Jacob Hamilton had the shutout in goal. Sunday, the King picked up their first win of the season with a 3-2 victory over the Lethbridge College Kodiaks.

Third-year defender Matthew Elphick, third-year Hugo Janssen and rookie Nathan Swartz scored in the victory for the Kings.

The Queens will play their home opener on Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. against the Olds College Broncos, with the Kings to follow.
