Marie-Soleil Desch­enes and Dut Dut are this week’s UPEI Pan­ther Sub­way and At­lantic Univer­sity Sport ath­letes of the week. Desch­enes, a fourth-year sci­ence stu­dent from Île-Per­rot, Que., back­stopped the women’s hockey team to two crit­i­cal vic­to­ries on the week­end. The Pan­thers broke a 12-game los­ing streak and are back in the hunt for a play­off po­si­tion. Dur­ing the Pan­thers 1-0 win over Dal­housie and 2-1 win over the coun­try’s sixth-seed Saint Mary’s Huskies, Desch­enes was se­lected first star in both games and stopped 53 of 54 shots with a .982 save per­cent­age. Dut, a fourthyear arts stu­dent from Ottawa, led the Pan­thers to two wins over the Aca­dia Ax­e­men dur­ing the week­end. In the Pan­thers’ 101-83 and 92-90 wins, Dut recorded 46 points on 16-for-25 shoot­ing from the field, 27 re­bounds and two blocked shots. He was 3for-6 from three-point range and 11-for-12 from the foul line.
