The Queen's Gaels (12-12-3) scored two goals in the third period to defeat the RMC Paladins (9-18-1) 4-2 in the 34th Carr-Harris Challenge Cup at the Leon's Centre in Kingston on Thursday night.

The game also saw a new record for attendance for the Carr-Harris Cup with 4,121 fans on hand.

The teams were unable to get on the scoreboard in the first period but at the 11:44 mark of the second Luke Edwards put the puck past RMC’s Joey May to open the scoring for the Gaels. About two minute later Jared Bethune, who assisted the opener, was set up by Edwards to put the Gaels up 2-0.

The back-to-back goals sparked RMC but they were unable to score before the end of the period.

Finally, a little more than halfway through the third, the Paladins got on the board as Liam Stagg set up Marshall Skapski to cut the Queen’s lead to 2-1. A few minutes later, RMC were on the powerplay and Cameron Lamport set up Rhett Willcox to tie it up 2-2.

The tie wouldn't last long as the Gaels answered right back as Brandon Schuldhaus scored his first career U SPORTS marker to put Queen’s back in front with a point shot. Josh Curtis would then add an empty-netter to secure the Gaels’ 21st win over RMC at the Carr-Harris Cup
