Gaels Run Away in Second Half

Shaking off a mediocre start, the Queen's Golden Gaels came out firing in the second half and shot a blistering 62% from the field after the intermission to blow open a 4 point game at the half and defeat CCAA's St. Lawrence Vikings 80-52 at St. Lawrence for their second straight blowout win against an OCAA school this pre-season. The Gaels led only 32-28 at halftime but outscored STL by 48-24 as 6'6" sophomore Mitch Leger led the way with 28 points on 10/17 shooting and added 8 rebounds. Queen's also got 11 points including 3-4 3's from 6'2" second-year guard Baris Ondul. 6'5" freshman Jon Ogden pushed a double/double with 11 points and 8 boards while veteran Simon Mitchell added 9 points and 5 assists for Queen's. The Gaels also did a tremendous job on the glass outrebounding the Vikings 49-24. The Gaels now look forward to hosting a pair of games in two weeks as Paul Smith College (U.S. NAIA) visits Kingston on Friday, October 5th. The next evening, Queen's plays their first pre-season game against a CIS school as the UNB Varsity Reds visit the Bartlett Gym.
