Calgary, AB - Backed by an unbeatable performance by Bachelor of Science Nursing student Alethea Riemer, the Red Deer College Queens stymied the host Ambrose University Lions 3-0.
The afternoon contest remained scoreless well into the first half, until Queens second-year forward Alisha Coules tallied. The Bachelor of Science Nursing student solved Lions goalkeeper Janelle Reimer in the 36th minute. Bailey Richarde, a second-year forward from Grande Prairie, set up the opening marker. Nearly seven minutes later, Coules struck again and the visitors held a 2-0 edge heading into the half.
The RDC Queens went up by three about 27 minutes into the second half. Once again, Alisha Coules and Bailey Richarde connected on the goal, but this time the roles were reversed. In the 72nd minute, Bailey Richarde converted a set-up from Alisha Coules past Reimer, and the Queens controlled the game 3-0.
Alethea Riemer was strong when called upon and the Queens goalkeeper from Trail, B.C., turned aside six shots. Janelle Reimer stopped six out of nine attempts.
Alisha Coules was named the Queens Player-of-the-Game, recording two goals and one assist. Coules has five goals in four games. Kate Stacey was selected for the Lions with a strong defensive performance.
Next weekend, the RDC Queens will play a pair of games. On Saturday, September 28, the Red Deer College Queens (2-3-0) will face the SAIT Trojans (1-2-1) in Calgary at noon. Then 24 hours later, the Queens will host the University of Alberta Augustana Vikings (1-3-0) at RDC Main Field.
