Journal Pioneer - - SPORTS -

Summerside’s Ryan MacKin­non is this week’s UPEI Pan­ther Sub­way male ath­lete of the week. MacKin­non is a third-year year de­fence­man on the men’s hockey team and a busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion stu­dent. MacKin­non played a big role as the Pan­thers split games with Dal­housie and St. FX.

“With a cou­ple in­juries to our de­fence right now, we are re­ly­ing on Ryan even more,” said coach Forbes MacPher­son. “He is play­ing big min­utes in all sit­u­a­tions and had the gamewin­ning goal ver­sus Dal­housie Fri­day.”

Reese Bax­en­dale, a first-year guard on the women’s bas­ket­ball team, was the fe­male ath­lete of the week.

The Sus­sex, N.B. shone in both match-ups as the Pan­thers split a pair of games with the UNB Var­sity Reds.

She av­er­aged 16 points per game, hit­ting 45 per cent of her shots, in­clud­ing 39 per cent from be­yond the three-point line. She also av­er­aged three re­bounds, two as­sists and two steals while hold­ing UNB’s top scor­ing point guard to just five points in two games.
