Marie-Soleil Deschenes and Dut Dut
Marie-Soleil Deschenes and Dut Dut are this week’s UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
They were received the Atlantic University Sport awards as well.
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 fourth-year 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 3-for-6 from three-point range and 11-for-12 from the foul line.
