Kirsten Chamberlin named Sherlock Holmes Athlete of the Week

    By Connor Hood on March 2, 2020

    Stopping 30 of the 31 shots she faced in the Canada West Final, fourth-year Pandas goalie Kirsten Chamberlin was instrumental in leading Alberta to their record 14th Canada West Championship this past weekend. 

    Chamberlin turned aside 13 of the 14 shots she faced in the Pandas 5-1 Game 1 win over Mount Royal on Friday night, before recording a 17-save shutout in Game 2 to secure the conference championship for Alberta.

    Through four post-season games this season, Chamberlin now has recorded three shutouts, stopping 78 of the 79 shots she has faced across two series wins. 

    Her 0.20 goals against average and .987 save percentage are tops in U SPORTS in the post-season. Chamberlin also now owns a 11-0-2 career Canada West playoff record, allowing just nine goals in 13 games. 

    Chamberlin and the Pandas will look for a record ninth National Championship next week, when they travel to Charlottetown for the 2020 U SPORTS Championship, hosted by the UPEI Panthers, March 12th to 15th.
