Kingston’s Devon Stride, a fourth-year kinesiology student, also scored a try for the No.3-ranked Gaels, who twice had to come back to gain the victory.
York scored the first try of the game and after Queen’s took a 12-5 lead into halftime, the home team scored the first two tries of the second half to take a 15-12 lead. The Gaels then scored 26 unanswered points the rest of the way to secure their second win, without defeat, this year.

Queen's climbed back from the deficit as Claragh Pegg (Barrie, Ont.) put up another try for the Gaels which was followed by a try by Miranda Seifert (Regina, Sask.), McEwen kicked a successful conversion to keep the Gaels in the lead. Devon Stride (Kingston, Ont.) continued the Gaels attack, scoring a try of her own. McEwen closed out the game for the Gaels with a try and a conversion, resulting in a 38-15 win for the Queen's.
