The UNB Reds/Papa John’s Pizza female Athlete of the Week is Lily George, from the women’s hockey team.
George played a crucial role in helping the Reds split their 2019-20 season opening games.
In Friday’s 2-0 loss to UPEI, the 2nd year forward had four shots on goal and generated numerous scoring opportunities against a stingy defence.
She scored twice in Saturday’s 3-0 win at St. Thomas, and was, again, a key factor in the Reds offence.
“Lily generated a ton of opportunity all weekend,” said Reds head coach Sarah Hilworth. “It was great to see her get rewarded with a couple of goals. She had a great pre-season and I’m excited to see how this catapults her into the rest of the season.”
George and her teammates are back in action Wednesday, when they host Moncton, and Saturday, when Dalhousie comes to town.
