QUEEN'S 3 CARLETON 0
NO. 4 GAELS ADVANCE TO OUA FINAL FOUR WITH 3-0 WIN OVER CARLETON
By Shawn MacDonald - Queen's Sports Information
The No. 4 Gaels move on to the OUA final four next weekend after they defeated the Carleton Ravens 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.
OUA east first team all-star Jacqueline Tessier of Winnipeg opened the scoring for the Gaels as she made an inside out move past a defender and fired a shot towards the top corner for the goal.
The Gaels controlled much of the flow early on in the game keeping possession deep in the Ravens end for most of the first half. OUA second team all-star Kelli Chamberlain of North Bay, Ont. found some open space and fired a shot from just outside the box late in the first half. The shot was grabbed by Ravens goalkeeper Rachel Bedek of St. Thomas, Ont.
In the second half Chamberlain came streaking down the left sideline and managed to chip a ball towards the net that Tessier was easily able to tip past the keeper. The goal put the Gaels up 2-0 as they continued to get the ball in the Ravens zone.
With their season inching closer to an end the Ravens started to take more chances to get back in the game. Gaels starting keeper Chantel Marson of London, Ont. held the Ravens at bay, pouncing on anything close.
Bedek grabbed a quick shot midway through the second half fired by Alexis McKinty of Burlington, Ont. McKinty took a pass off a corner kick but was unable to beat the keeper who caught the ball straight out of the air for the save.
The Gaels closed out the game in the 40th minute of the second half when Breanna Burton of Ottawa brought the ball along the end line and fed OUA east MVP Riley Filion of Alexandria, Ont. who then directed the ball into the net giving the Gaels a 3-0 advantage. The score would hold up as the final on the day.
Marson got the shutout for the Gaels while stopping all shots faced.
With the win the Gaels now move on to the OUA final four next weekend that will be hosted by the Laurier Golden Hawks. The Gaels will play the winner of Windsor vs. McMaster which is set to start later today
