The Gaels got off to a quick start as Eric Koskins (Richmond Hill, Ont.) beat his defender down the right flank and delivered a perfect cross for teammate Tommy Hong (Oakville, Ont.) to tap home. The goal came just six minutes into the contest and gave Queen's the 1-0 lead.
Queen's dictated the pace of the game for the first few minutes but the Rams were able to slow the game down and fall into their own rhythm. The patience paid off at the 29 minute mark when Armin Tankovic (Mississauga, Ont.) scored to tie the game at 1-1. Tankovic's initial shot was blocked by a defender but took a deflection back off the chest of Tankovic and bounced past the goalkeeper.
The first scoring chance of the second half came at the 55 minute mark as Queen's was awarded a free kick in a dangerous area, but the entry ball sailed over everyone's head and through the box harmlessly.
Following that opportunity, Ryerson had a flurry of chances and dominated the play. The Rams had scoring chance after scoring chance for the good portion of 10 minutes but were unable to find the back of the net.
The Rams didn't appear to want to settle for the draw and pushed up field in the dying minutes of the game. Defender Markus Molder (Toronto) stepped up and jumped on a loose ball with two minutes remaining in the game but sent a booming shot wide of goal.
Ryerson looks to return to the win column Sunday afternoon as they host the RMC Paladins at 3:15 p.m. at Allan Lamport Stadium.
