Queenston currently sits in first place in the Championship division with a strong showing this season after promotion from the 1st division, they have established themselves as a top notch contender for the division. Only conceding 1 loss in the regular season against the red hot Sharpshooters (4-1). Yemen Elite is coming off back to back losses, one in the regular season against the Sharpshooter (2-1) and the other against the Premier undefeated BSC Raiders on Wednesday’s Tehel Cup game in a nail biter of a finish with a man down and scoring 2 goals in that timeframe in the second half. BSC was able to score in the final minute to avoid OT.
Yemen has to do some soul searching if they want to beat Queenston who seem to taken this division by surprise. Yemen has some of the most talented players on the roster but is the hunger there to win after losing close ones. How will Yemen overcome these losses mentally? Will we see the Yemen team who seem to score at ease against FC Buffalo or not? Yemen sits tied for 3rd place in the division and will have to keep winning in order to stay in the top of the bracket and secure a playoff spot. One quick note regarding the away games, is the fans. The fans have come out in huge support for this team and have shown so much energy that at times would push Elite to play better during the match. The team appreciates it and would like to recognize that.
