On Thursday, at 7:35 p.m., the puck dropped for the long awaited Carr-Harris Challenge Cup. After two years of the cup not being played due to COVID-19, the Leon’s Centre in Kingston was packed with spectators to watch the "world’s oldest hockey rivalry" take place.

The Queen’s Gaels won 2-1 after going into overtime. Queen’s scored first in the 13th minute of the second period thanks to Dalton Duhart, assisted by Josh Curtis. The RMC Paladins tied up the game in the second period as a result of Noah Rowe's goal.

The third period was a nail biting 20 minutes but did not result in either team scoring, leading to seven minutes of overtime. Alex Robert, Queen’s Gaels hockey forward from Ottawa, led Queen’s to victory for the 35th Carr-Harris cup.
