Following back-to-back shutouts this past weekend against the Mount Royal Cougars, senior Pandas soccer goalie Rebecca Reif has been named the Sherlock Holmes Athlete of the Week.
Reif backstopped the Pandas to a 2-0 win on Saturday, and a 0-0 draw on Saturday, improving the Pandas to 8-0-2 in conference play. The fifth-year stopper made seven combined saves over the Pandas two matches, as she continues to lead Canada West in fewest goals against (3), while sitting second with a 0.914 save percentage.
Her pair of clean sheets over the weekend also gives her seven this season, as she only trails Calgary's Lauren Houghton, who has posted eight. Reif has now tallied 19 career shutouts (11 with MacEwan, eight with Alberta), to jump into tenth place all-time in Canada West history.
Reif and the No. 9 ranked Pandas will aim to close the gap behind Calgary (9-1-0) in the Prairie Division this weekend, as they travel to B.C. with games scheduled against Trinity Western and Fraser Valley this weekend.
