Jessica Gzebb is the MCAC Female Athlete of the Week

Without coming off the court, RRC’s Jessica Gzebb scored four goals in the team’s 5-2 win over the CMU Blazers

With a short bench during Saturday’s 5-2-win, Rebels futsal pivot Jessica Gzebb found the back of the net four times.

RRC had no extra players for the match, which forced Gzebb to play the full game. Gzebb was a force in the offensive zone — playing without any breaks didn’t slow her down at all.

“Jessica was our main attacking player in this game and proved to be a handful for the CMU defense,” said Rebels head coach Douglas Lawrie. “She was very difficult to stop in one-on-one situations and often forced CMU to defend with two against her.”

With no subs, Lawrie had his team play an energy preserving structured game. The Rebels played prevent defense until they had opportunities to send Gzebb on a break.

“She was able to generate repeated offensive opportunities and scored four beautiful goals,” said Lawrie.

Gzebb set up Shea Bresciani for RRC’s other goal by drawing defenders to her before finding Bresciani in space.

The third year MCAC player is enrolled in the Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography program at Red River College.

The Rebels are back on the gym floor on Saturday, January 25 to host the ACC Cougars.
