When it comes to rivalry games, skill generally matters less than physicality. Each team comes out and plays a tough, physical game. The team that asserts its presence more consistently has a better chance of emerging victorious.
Such was the case in the Carr-Harris Challenge Cup. Judging by Queen’s and RMC’s records, RMC had no business being in the game. But, right from the opening whistle, bodies were flying around and RMC took it to Queen’s.
In a game like this, RMC did the right things to win, according to Queen’s acting head coach Tony Cimellaro. “(RMC) got to the dirty areas (and) scored the goals that they needed to score.”
This was a very big win for RMC’s program, especially after the effort the team put forth at Westpoint.
