Leanne scored three goals this past weekend to become the all-time ACAC women’s soccer scoring leader. She scored her 59th career goal in her 32nd game surpassing the previous mark of 58 goals in 54 games. Leanne scored the winner Saturday in the Ooks 2-1 win over their rivals from Concordia then added two more goals Sunday in the team’s 3-3 draw with the GPRC Wolves.
“I am not surprised that Leanne has broken the record - she is a fierce competitor and has contributed so much to the NAIT women's soccer program,” said new Head Coach Carole Holt. “She is the kind of player you hate to play against because she is so difficult to contain and can score all kinds of goals.”
Leanne is a 4th year player in the Business Administration program and is from Edmonton, AB.
Congratulations Leanne on breaking the record!
Despite coming off the bench in both games this weekend, Dexter used his minutes to make a massive impact by scoring the game winning goal in both of NAIT's wins over Concordia and GPRC this weekend. A strong, physical player, Dexter was also able to show his technical ability with his two goals. He was also able to cause a real problem for opposition defenders with his aggressive nature and willingness to track down every ball in his area.
"One of the difficulties in having a very deep team is that some players will always not get as much playing time as perhaps they deserve,” said Head Coach Jeff Paulus. “All we ask when they do get in the game is that they make an impact on our play. Scoring both of the game winning goals for us this weekend is exactly the impact we want!"
Dexter is a 1st year Continuing Education student from Edmonton, AB.
