Female Athlete of the Week
University of Prince Edward Island
Chanelle Roy of the CIS No. 10-ranked UPEI Panthers women’s soccer team is the Subway Atlantic University Sport Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending September 16, 2012.
Roy, a fifth-year keeper from Bathurst, N.B., registered two more wins this past weekend as the Panthers improved to 3-0-1 to sit in first place after two weeks of play.
In Friday’s 1-0 road victory over the Saint Mary’s Huskies in Halifax, Chanelle registered her third shutout in as many outings this season and in Sunday’s 2-1 home victory over the UNB Varsity Reds, she did not allow a goal until the 85th minute, ending a streak of over 355 minutes played without allowing a goal this season.
Roy, a first-team AUS all-star in each of the past three seasons and a CIS all-Canadian keeper in 2010 has allowed just 7 goals and has posted 25 shutouts in her last 30 regular season starts.
