CALGARY – Two soccer standouts have been chosen as the Under Armour & Players Bench Athletes of the Week for the week of September 4-11, 2018.
Despite two tough losses men's soccer player Rohin Nazari put in a defensive performance of the highest quality. The senior midfielder covered more blades of grass than anyone else over the weekend and his defensive work gave MRU a chance to win this weekend.
The Cougars men's soccer team is now 2-2-0 sitting in third place in the Prairie Division.
Women's soccer player Erin Holt was the catalyst for the MRU Cougars' offence this past weekend. Against Lethbridge, she nearly opened up the scoring just minutes in after she nicked the ball off a defender and ran in on a breakaway. Later in the same game, the dynamic forward's cross lead to MRU's game-winning goal.
The Cougars women's soccer team is 1-1-0 after splitting the weekend. Both teams are at home this weekend with the games Saturday kicking off at 11:00AM.
