The RDC Queens were dominant in their first win of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference season.

They outscored the SAIT Trojans 32-20 in the first half and didn’t look back in a convincing 67-46 win at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.

Veteran Lauren Cardinal led the way off the bench for the Queens, scoring 13 points, while adding five rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Third-year forward Britney Peters of Fort St. John, B.C., also had a big night, pouring in 12 points to go along with eight rebounds. Third-year guard Sandra Garcia-Bernal picked up 13 boards to go along with her nine points. Amy Szymanek cashed in nine points, six rebounds and four assists. The Queens shot 34.8 per cent from the field and were 80 per cent from the free throw line in the win.

The Kings suffered a tough 93-82 loss to the Trojans.

Tyronn King led the way for RDC with 24 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. Fifth-year Spencer Klassen had 18 points, four rebounds and three assists. Jouvon Edison also had a strong game, with 13 points and eight rebounds.

RDC shot 40 per cent from the field in the loss and 20 per cent from three-point range, but only converted 68 per cent of their free throws in the loss.

Calvin Chambers led the Trojans with 21 points, six assists, four steals and four rebounds.

Next up the Kings and Queens Queens play the St. Mary’s University on the road on Nov. 1. Their next home game is Nov. 15 against the Ambrose University Lions.
