Pearson, Saleh named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Brooke Pearson (Pickering, Ont.) of the women's soccer team. Pearson's opportunistic mindset helped the Rams sweep their weekend series against Trent and Ontario Tech. Her first goal of the weekend came against Trent with a beautiful strike from distance that curled into the top corner, leaving no chance for the Excalibur keeper. On Sunday, Pearson scored an insurance marker when she found space in the middle to head home a cross, giving the Rams a 2-0 lead at the time. Pearson now has three goals on the season to lead the team and her performance helped Ryerson extend their win streak to three games for the first time since 2015.
Muaz Saleh (Hamilton, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. The third year forward with the men's soccer team continues to capitalize on his offensive chances as he scored twice more this weekend to give him an OUA-leading five goals this season. Saleh scored in the opening minute on Friday night before adding a second marker and an assist in Ryerson's 4-0 win over Trent.
