CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Alyssa Ferguson and Filip Rydstrom are the UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
Ferguson is a fourth-year business student from Murray River and a forward on the UPEI field hockey team. Ferguson was a big part of the team’s Atlantic University Field Hockey championship this weekend and was named a league all-star.
“Alyssa had a great weekend and great season for us,” said coach Lacey MacLauchlan. “She scored six goals this weekend, along with the winning goal in the championship game just two minutes into the game. She used her strength and speed to her advantage all weekend and was a scoring threat. She was also able to create many scoring opportunities and move the ball up the field well for her teammates.”
Rydstrom is a second-year arts student from Stockholm, Sweden, and a centre on the men’s hockey team. The Panthers lost their first game of the weekend to Saint Mary’s but came blasted Acadia 8-3 Saturday. Rydstrom notched four goals and an assist against Acadia and was selected player of the game.
“Filip has taken his game to a new level this year,” said coach Forbes MacPherson. “He has been a different and better player from Day 1. Saturday night, he was rewarded with a huge effort on the score sheet.”
