CIS preseason: Gaels set for non-conference tilt with Stingers in Montreal (VIDEO)

KINGSTON – The Queen’s football team will visit the Concordia Stingers in an exhibition non-conference game which will serve as a tune-up for the Gaels regular season opener in a week’s time at Richardson against Carleton. Kick-off in Montreal is slated for 2pm.

This marks the second straight year that Queen’s and Concordia will meet in exhibition play as the Gaels played host to the Stingers last year in a game that went the way of Concordia by a tune of 25-18.

This season’s edition of the Gaels will feature a young and hungry group that is looking to build off of a successful finish to the season beating Toronto and York at home before dismantling an emerging Carleton team in Ottawa. Queen’s will see some familiar faces returning as players like Doug Corby (Burlington, Ont.), Jesse Andrews(Arnprior, Ont.), Luke Ball (Kingston, Ont.) Nicholas Romanchuk (Richmond Hill, Ont.) and Corey Flude (Wilton, Ont.) to go along with the emergence of a strong group of rookies from 2014 led by OUA All-Rookie’s Mike Moore(Mississauga, Ont.) and Jason Shamatutu (Port Coquitlam, B.C.).

The team will be hungry with a young core emerging and ready to step into the spotlight for years to come.
