Queens 0 Kodiaks 0
LETHBRIDGE — David Colley is about at his wit’s end.
On Sunday he watched for a second match in a row as his Queens’ soccer team dominated an opponent on the road, but failed to put the ball in the net. This time the 0-0 draw came in Lethbridge to a Kodiaks team they could ill-afford to drop any points to.
“It was a great performance up to finishing. We played great footy . . . we just couldn’t finish to save our lives,” said Colley. “Really I’m more annoyed than frustrated. It was a team we should have beat.”
Lauren Good collected the shutout in net for the Queens while midfielder Lauren Bowman was named player of the game for the Queens.
The Queens now have to beat SAIT on Saturday to lock up their Alberta Colleges Women’s Soccer League playoff spot. The Queens, 4-2-2, sit in third place, one point up on Lethbridge, who has one game remaining against second-place Medicine Hat. The Queens have two games remaining, both at home— Saturday at noon against SAIT and Sunday at noon against Mount Royal.
Kings 4 Kodiaks 1
RDC Kings head coach Steve Fullarton had a little sitdown with his team prior to meeting the Kodiaks and the results were everything he could have hoped for.
The Kings, who were coming off a disappointing 1-0 loss to the Rattlers, stormed out of the gate against the Kodiaks and rolled to a 4-1 win.
“It was a huge improvement over Saturday, it may have been our best performance of the season,” said Fullarton. “We had a little meeting in the morning and thrashed a few things out and the guys came out strong from the start.”
The win left the Kings with a 4-2-2 record and in a tie for third in the South Division with the SAIT Trojans, who they host Saturday at 2 p.m.
Joe Ziebart had a pair of goals against the Kodiaks with Jacob Van Benthem and Dallas Hughes adding single markers.
