Alyssa Heuchert, Rebels’ first-year winger from Oakbank, Manitoba, has been named the MCAC’s female Athlete of the Week!
This weekend, Heuchert scored a goal in each of the Rebels two games and added an assist in their 4-1 win over the ACC Cougars. Both games were competitive and had significant playoff implications on the line.
Her offense helped the Rebels earn four points this weekend and she now leads the Rebels with four goals and two assists on the season.
Injury issues forced some lineup changes for the Rebels and Heuchert was asked to play a central midfield role to help defend their lead.
“She was very effective in pressuring the ball and regaining possession,” said head coach Doug Lawrie. “Her performance this weekend was outstanding.”
The Rebels will take on the top two teams in the conference this weekend as they visit the BU Bobcats (5-2-1) on Saturday and then host the CMU Blazers (3-3-2) on Sunday.
