Daneige Edey is the MCAC Female Athlete of the Week

Edey has allowed just six goals throughout four games this season

Daneige Edey stopped everything in sight to lead the USB Les Rouges to a 7-0 shutout win over the CMU Blazers last Friday.

It was the second consecutive clean sheet for Edey, who has allowed just six goals against through four games this season.

“Daneige has been putting in some extra work and it’s really paying off,” said Les Rouges head coach Justin Légaré. “She is playing at a high-level, showing opponents that she will not be easy to beat.”

USB sits in a three-way tie for first place with 10 points in the MCAC women’s futsal standings — Edey has played a big role in the team’s success. The Les Rouges are the only team without a loss this season, sitting at a 3-1-0 record, with their tie coming against the BU Bobcats.

“She’s a talented goalie and will be relied on this season as we try to earn another futsal championship,” said Légaré. “She has the ability to make big saves in key moments of the game.”

Edey is in her third year of eligibility and is enrolled in the arts program at USB.

The Les Rouges will fight to stay undefeated when they face the winless ACC Cougars on Saturday, Feb. 8.
