CIS athletes of the week (#5) UPEI’s Stanley, Saint Mary’s Denbrook honoured


October 2, 2013, OTTAWA (CIS) – Soccer players Sarah Stanley from the University of Prince Edward Island and Kyle Denbrook from Saint Mary’s University are the Canadian Interuniversity Sport female and male athletes of the week for the period ending Sept. 29, 2013.

Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, accounted for all of her team’s offence last weekend as the Panthers (3-0-3) remained undefeated in league play thanks to a pair of victories on home turf, including a win over the nationally ninth-ranked and AUS-leading Dalhousie Tigers. On Saturday, the 5-foot-7 midfielder tallied twice in a span of three minutes late in the first half in a 2-0 defeat of the Tigers. She was once again the hero on Sunday when she scored the only goal of the match in the 66th minute to lift UPEI to a 1-0 decision over Saint Mary’s.

Soccer players Catherine Charron-Delage of Montreal, Chantal McFetridge of Ottawa and Julia Ignacio of Alberta were also nominated for the women’s award.

Denbrook, a fifth-year business administration student from Lower Sackville, N.S., also provided all the scoring for his team as the Huskies (5-2-1) moved to the top of the AUS standings and climbed into the national Top 10 – at No. 10 – thanks to back-to-back 1-0 road wins. The 6-foot-2 midfielder potted the game-winner just before halftime last Wednesday against Dalhousie and was again the lone scorer on Sunday against UPEI, this time finding the back of the net in the 18th minute of play.

Soccer players Massimo Di Ioia of McGill, Ian Wolfe of Laurentian and Navid Mashinchi of UBC were the other male nominees.
