Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS -

Bishop’s Univer­sity Depart­ment of Ath­let­ics and Re­cre­ation is pleased to an­nounce that Emma Fin­gler of the women’s soc­cer team and Taren Cook of the lacrosse team have been named the Provigo Robert La­fond Ath­letes of the Week.

Fin­gler, the Burn­aby, B.C. na­tive played a prom­i­nent role on de­fense for the Gaiters this past week­end when they fell 2-0 to No. 3 Mon­treal and 3-0 to McGill. The third year Po­lit­i­cal Science stu­dent helped hold the na­tion­ally ranked Mon­treal Cara­bins to two goals at home on Fri­day night.

“On Sun­day, Emma was an of­fen­sive threat,” said Gaiters head coach Chris Horni­brook. “Her long kicks helped us into the of­fen­sive third of the field.”

Fin­gler will lead her team against UQAM on Fri­day Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. in Mon­treal and against UQTR at 3 p.m. at home on Sun­day Sept. 21.

Cook, from Rothesay N.B., led the Gaiters in scor­ing over the week­end with a hat trick in both games they played. Bishop’s beat Trent 12-6 on Satur­day night and Queen’s 12-9 on Sun­day. The rookie at­tack added an as­sist on Sun­day to give him a seven-point week­end. The en­vi­ron­men­tal science stu­dent has 11 points in his first two weeks of ac­tion as a Gaiter.

Cook will look to con­tinue his dom­i­nance with the un­de­feated Gaiters when they face the McGill Red­men in Mon­treal on Wed­nes­day night at 8:30 p.m. and host Ot­tawa on Satur­day Sept. 20 at 7 p.m.
