After suffering a tough loss yesterday afternoon in Quebec, the Red Deer Polytechnic Queens soccer team had to regroup for the bronze quarterfinals match vs Les Rouges de Saint-Boniface, who are the champions out of Manitoba.
Les Rouges had an impressive season similar to the Queens with an 11-1 record during conference play on their way to winning the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) Championships. The Queens came into this match after being shutout for the first time this season by the Champlain College Cavaliers yesterday afternoon.
The players of the game went to Queens defender Jaiden Humphrey (Bachelor of Education Elementary) and defender Kalyna Demare of Saint-Boniface. Humphrey had yet another solid game at centre-back, running down all the balls and defending the Les Rouges attacking line.
The Queen’s came away with a 2-0 victory over Les Rouges.
The Queens will now move on to the bronze semi-final match where they will await the loser of the match between the Seneca Sting and the Aigles d’Ahuntsic. The Aigles were the number one nationally ranked team heading into the championships.
The bronze semi-final match will take place at 1:00 pm MST tomorrow at Seaway 3 Park in Saint-Lambert, Quebec.
