ArcelorMittal Dofasco CIS athletes of the week (#3): Ryerson’s Rodkin, McGill’s Fowo honoured


OTTAWA (CIS) – Soccer players Alex Rodkin from Ryerson University and Clovis Fowo from McGill University are the ArcelorMittal Dofasco CIS female and male athletes of the week for the period ending Sept. 21, 2014.

Rodkin, a first-year sociology student from Whitby, Ont., tallied four goals in two contests over the weekend, including both game-winners, to lead the Rams (2-5) to their first two victories of the season. On Saturday, the 5-foot-6 striker scored twice in the final two minutes of a 3-2 decision over Queen’s, which marked Ryerson’s first-ever win over the perennial OUA powerhouse dating back to their first head-to-head meeting in 1986. The talented freshman was at it again on Sunday as she accounted for all of the Rams’ scoring in a 2-1 victory against RMC.

Soccer players Jessie Noseworthy of Memorial, Amélie Poulin of UQTR and Shelby Beck of Fraser Valley were also nominated for the women’s award.

Fowo, a mechanical engineering sophomore from Paris, France, scored both goals in McGill’s 2-1 upset over nationally-ranked and previously undefeated Montreal (3-1-1), Sunday. The result snapped a seven-game winless streak for the Redmen against their cross-town rivals and marked their first-ever victory in 14 lifetime attempts on Carabins territory. Fowo, a 19-year-old midfielder, was making his first start of the season and did not even dress in last Friday’s game against Laval.

Soccer players Justin Maheu of Cape Breton, Jarek Whiteman of York and Andrew Hood of Calgary were the other male nominees.
